iCoptic Features:

  • ‘Today’ tab features the liturgical readings of the day including Vespers, Matins, Pauline, Catholic, Acts, & Gospel. You may also read ahead or if you missed yesterday’s reading, you may catch up! The corresponding season and hymn tune of the Church is also displayed along with the Gregorian and Coptic dates.
  • ‘Katamerous’ tab allows you to pick any day of the year (Coptic or Gregorian calendars) and it will view the readings for that specific day. Years (1971-2038) supported in the Gregorian calendar and years (1688-1752) supported in the Coptic Calendar.

    • While there is no official release date set, I can say that we are working closely with the iCoptic group to bring the app to the iPad.
      Please, Pray for us and the success of this project.
