Coptic Reader App Description

Coptic Reader is a mobile application that contains the liturgical text, rites, psalmodies, hymns, melodies, services, and sacraments of the Coptic Orthodox Church. See below for a full list of included content. Coptic Reader is not simply a text reader but rather it dynamically creates each document/service according to the rites of the current day, or selected day/feast. Coptic Reader builds each document on the fly with all appropriate hymns, rites and instructions to take the guess work out of the order of a church service. Coptic Reader can generate documents in a combination of English, Arabic, and Coptic and supports both English and Arabic as the application interface language. Coptic Reader is fully customizable and allows you to show/hide different liturgical roles (i.e., Priest, Deacon, and Congregation), inaudible prayers, rubrics/comments, and languages. You may choose between different graphical themes as well as change the document text size. A presentation mode is also supported that allows you to project the content in your church for a complete experience. The application also allows you to control which saint or archangel commemorations will be shown in doxologies, hymns, responses, and other prayers for your church's intercessors. Content List: - Complete Bible including Coptic New Testament and Deuterocanonical books - Book of Hours (Agpeya) - Holy Psalmody including Midnight Praises, Vesper Praises, Morning Praises (Standard, Koiahk, Nativity, Theophany, Great Fast, Pentecostal, including all festal psalies) - Antiphonary (Difnar) - Divine Liturgies with integrated Service of the Deacons (St. Basil, St.Gregory, and St. Cyril, as well as Vespers and Matins service) - Katameros (Sundays, Weekdays, Great Fast, Pentecostal, and feasts) - Synaxarion - Distribution Melodies - Unction of the Sick - Baptism Prayers - Crowning and Engagement Prayers - Pascha Prayers - Prostration Prayers - Liturgy of the Waters (Lakkan) - Veneration - Funerals (Men, Women, Boys, Girls, Monks, Memorials, and Prayer at the Tomb) - Consecrations (Church, Vessels, Censers, Icons, Baptistery, Ordinations, Reception of a New Priest, and Home Blessing) For more information about Coptic Reader, visit: http://suscopts.org/wiki/Coptic_Reader Please direct any comments or questions to: copticreader@suscopts.org https://www.facebook.com/CopticReader

Coptic Reader App Reviews

  • Reading the whole Bible

    By my family&I worship the Lord
    Hi, I love the app so much. But I wish for one thing dividing the Bible into daily readings to finish it whole in 1 year or on 2 years. So if you enter the date of any date on 2020 you read for that day Unfortunately this option is available on the Orthozoxi version of samsung android, but not on the iOS.
  • Awkward translations

    By ihateapplecomputers
    As an overall concept it is well set and nice navigation. As for the translations they are subpar and very awkward. The translations show that translator(s) utilize a word by word and literal translation, rather than a more complete format. There is a very limited use of vocabulary and a utilization of the Arabic as a main source. The Agbeya prayers are very difficult for congregational oral rendition. The Synaxarium, as in all known English types, are childish. I can give hundreds of examples but the Egyptian thing to say is: “it’s better than nothing”. I’m glad that some ridiculous renderings such as the Advent Ps 150 refrain have been removed. Can we now fix the Easter time refrain for the Ps 150 as “Christ IS Risen” not “Christ has Risen”.
  • The church is in your home

    By KookyHappyFace
    This app is awesome, it’s a great blessing to have it on my phone every where. I can read the Bible or the Agbia and and all church services in English, Coptic or Arabic. I can enlarge the text and have the Arabic on the side of English when I attend church service in both languages. It’s a great help in church to keep all ages focused on the papers. God bless everyone who is working to provide us with this app and help to keep the church in our home. Thank you

  • They do this out of Love

    By Mark Holy Family
    The Coptic Community is very blessed to have the producers and contributors to these apps. They realized it was more than an app, and a way for Copts to get closer to God and get rid of a lot of bad things in life. On top of this, the app is very easy to use, and includes every hymn you can think of. Thank You to the Producers and Contributors to Coptic Reader
