No More Shuffling Books The cycle of daily prayer called the Daily Office is one of the great treasures of the Episcopal / Anglican tradition. It has formed the ground for the spiritual lives of countless Christians in and out of this tradition, and it continues to help those seeking a rich, accessible pattern of prayer, scripture, and reflection. One of the Office's greatest assets is also among the greatest obstacles to newcomers: the breadth of options available to one within the liturgies of Morning Prayer, Noonday Prayer, Evening Prayer, and Compline can be overwhelming. Without guidance, the many rubrics and directions can be confusing to those unused to the particular logic of the Book of Common Prayer. This complexity, coupled with the need to refer to another text entirely for the readings from scripture while referencing a difficult-to-navigate lectionary can discourage a would-be user of the Daily Office before ever beginning! The Daily Office app, however, streamlines all this complexity while allowing users to have all of the depth and flexibility of the offices at their fingertips! Seamlessly integrating the prayers, psalms, and selections from scripture for you Daily Office makes praying this ancient cycle of liturgies both beautiful and easy!



  • So helpful

    By veteran broadcaster
    No matter where I am, as long as there’s cell signal, I’m prepared to pray the Daily Office. I still love the feel of books, but my phone is more portable. Sometimes I use this app just for easy access to the readings. Change up the settings a little and instantly freshen my practice. All we need now is EOW. Thanks!
  • Really one of the best out there.

    By Daw007
    So I will start by saying that I think the app is worth its price point, as the other comparable app as far as price goes, electronic common prayer, contains much more information, but forces you to click through a bunch of links to get to the relevant passages. As such, I like that this particular app allows you to seamlessly move through the office without any flipping for adjusting. Additionally, and this is a huge addition in my opinion, this app allows for the alternative readings to be used. This is something I have not seen on any other app that uses the two-year daily office lectionary. That feature alone makes the app worth it to me.
  • Please fix this!

    By Dweran
    Crashes every time the Morning office is opened. Other offices work, but not the morning. Have tried enabling or disabling various options, but cannot find a workaround. This is a beautiful app, and if it all worked it would deserve five stars. Buggy and unreliable for now.
  • Some major bugs for a $10 app

    By sarlachan
    The biggest and most annoying of these bugs is that the Daily Rite I & II for the evening does not work. It automatically kicks you out of the app. I have deleted and reinstalled it, and it still has the same problem. For now, I switch to Daily Devotion in the evenings (which does work). While I do like the flexibility of the app and the minimalist nature of it, I don’t know if it’s worth the $10 price tag at the moment until it’s working smoothly.
  • Really Good. Useful.

    By jpbr
    Only reason 4/5 is because it's not optimized for iPhone X (yet?)
  • Absolutely Wonderful

    By Disciple of Jesus 2.0
    In the quiet dark of the early morning I pray. This app allows me to never turn on a light (I use the accessibility option on my phone to invert the colors), nor search for a book or flip pages looking for the next reading. There is a certain serene joy in the simplicity. This app allows for a great deal of adjustment and modification depending on the rite and prayers and collects you might choose. I recently encountered a bug and reported it. Within 10 minutes I had an e-mail asking for specifics to look into the problem. I've dropped way more money on books I haven't even read yet than I paid to have this app. It is completely worth the money. In fact I'm almost embarrassed by how inexpensive it was compared to how much I use it. My sisters and brothers in Christ I wholeheartedly endorse this app. Soli Deo Gloria
  • The Daily Office app I've been waiting for

    By bbarczi
    When I'm away from my bound Contemporary Office Book, saying the BCP office from my phone is convenient. But every app has either required pushing a million buttons to get to all the components, or had too few options about the many flexible parts of the liturgy. This app made it very easy to set up the rhythm of the Office so the parts I want are there, with no hunting. I've been waiting for this app for YEARS. I'd love to see a night/dark mode because the white screen is pretty blaring for me, otherwise this is perfect. Thanks!

  • Getting lost in the bcp

    By Confused and lost in Nevada
    Decent app when the writer bothers to include the relevant readings. Lot's of can't find the collect of the day or the week. Don't know why the developer can't ask a priest. It's really not that hard.
  • Great but timed silence doesn't work

    By Narwhat
    I love this app. Unfortunately the only thing that doesn't work is wrong the length of time for silence. You can type the amount of time you want but you can't save the change, not even one time.
