Excellent

:
From easy access for my on the go daily office practice to emergency liturgical intervention... this app is a saving grace.

3/5 stars
Not quite what I had in mind, but pretty good

:
From the developer's website, it sounded like this app included the complete Daily Office of the ECUSA. In actuality, it includes the READINGS (with full text) for the Daily Office, but not the liturgy itself. Conversely, the iBCP app (cf.) has all of the readings and the ECUSA liturgy, but no date sensitivity. If these two apps could be married, we would have a nice implementation of the Book of Common Prayer for iPad that was not dependent on dead-tree books. As it is, though, this app was a bit disappointing (for me).

On the other hand, if you're looking for JUST the lectionary with full text, then this is a good app, with the following comments:

1. Placing the user settings exclusively in the iPad Settings app is clumsy. Putting less common things in Settings is fine, but settings like fonts and colors should be accessible within the app, as users may need to change them more frequently.

2. The little "locate" icon at the top is not very intuitive—why not use the familiar iCal interface and just out a button that says Today? Additionally, the button should take the user to today's reading. Instead, it shifts the index to the current portion of the month but does not change the reading.

Furthermore, the locate icon appears enticingly active whilst viewing a reading, but pressing it actually does nothing. The icon should either not be present whilst in a reading or take the viewer to the equivalent reading for the current day—e.g. if viewing the Gospel reading for a week hence, then the button should take the user to today's Gospel reading. Tapping a different date in the index whilst in a reading should result in the same thing (currently, the app takes the user to the contents page for that day).

3. The use of liturgical color as a background is nice, but I think readability would be improved if the color of the season was only used as a background for the week and date at the top.

4. Although the user can control the font size of the readings, the user is left with a choice between text that has lines that are comfortably long with sufficient whitespace to be easily readable (but which is so large as to be readable five pews back), versus text with overly lengthy lines and insufficient whitespace for easy reading (but much more reasonable font size). This problem is particularly apparent when iPad is used in landscape mode. The Psalms, being spaced for responsive reading, are much better off in this respect. Paragraph breaks and wider margins in the other readings would help a lot.

5. In most iPad and iPhone apps, when there are side-by-side choice buttons (e.g. Daily Office/Lectionary), the dim button represents the current selection and the bright button represents a different option that the user can select. As an example, see the behavior of the Search/Directions buttons in the Maps app. The Lectionary app uses the opposite behavior, which is confusing.

6. It would be more iPad-ish if the user could swipe to the right (a la iBooks) whilst in a reading and have the app go back to the contents page for that day. Similarly, being able to swipe to the right and have the app go to the next reading for the day would be great, too.

With some use user interface improvements this can be a five-star app....
