I have the hard copy, but this is much more handy and is helping me be more faithful to praying the Liturgy of the Hours. I love the addition of the Daily Readings as well. My one hope for improvement would be the option to have the actual hymns from the Office. Granted, I only knew a handful of them, but I don't know any of these.
Some critism of the content. The app does provide thorough coverage of daily catholic devotion, but, and this is big for me, the translations they use of scripture is very poor and too contemporary. Much of the beauty and subtle wisdom is lost with trying to simplify language to make it "modern".
It's one short of five stars. I love the layout and it is so wonderful to have the translations for NZ. But the in-page scrolling is terrible and not keeping your place on the page when you navigate away and back is frustrating. Some simple usability fixes would go a long way.
I had eprex before but there were some problems with their app. This app is working fine, for London and not only diocese. Just what I need in one click. Well done!
Better than the hard copy I use this instead of the hard copy, as it gets rid of the distracting ribbons, page surfing, & endless supplements. 2 needed additions: 1) Navigate to top when changing the hour. 2) Optional Psalm prayers.
Still love it, but it would be even better with the Ordinariate psalter (1928, unless I'm mistaken). Guaranteed sales and much thanks and admiration.
