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!
Simple & beautiful
Daily Office‘s interface has been carefully designed to get you to your prayer with a minimum of fuss and a minimum of distraction. From the moment it opens, you have immediate access to Morning Prayer, Noonday Prayer, Evening Prayer, and Compline.
The Home menu displays the day of the liturgical calendar, from the first Sunday of Advent through the Feast of Christ the King. Not familiar with the ins and outs of the Episcopal calendar? You don’t have to be! Daily Office takes care of all of it for you!

Each of the icons in the center corresponds to a liturgy. Daily Office supports both the full morning, noon, evening, and night offices of the Book of Common Prayer, as well as the more compact Daily Devotions for Individuals and Families.

Options, options, options…
Where Daily Office truly shines is in its ample and flexible options for customization.
