The long awaited Android version of the Divine Office award-winning mobile app is now available for a one-time purchase price of 14.99 USD on the Google Android Market and on the Amazon Android Appstore.
This app is an opportunity for you to participate in the recitation of the Liturgy of the Hours: the public prayer of the Christian community.
The Divine Office app will automatically update its content while you are running it with an Internet connection. The new Android App is an audio and text version of the official set of daily prayers from the Liturgy of the Hours of the Roman Catholic Church (Breviary). It wirelessly downloads several days of prayers at a time, without the need for synchronization or access to a computer.
For clergy required to pray the Liturgy of the Hours daily, or laity who recite the daily prayers to maintain their intimate connection with God, The Divine Office App is designed to make praying more convenient, enjoyable, and simple enough for anyone to use. It automatically downloads the appropriate prayers for each office, every day of the year, including Solemnities, Feasts, and Memorials.
The Divine Office Catholic Ministry uses the current four-volume Liturgy of the Hours with a bias towards the USA calendar. This version is the official prayer book of the Catholic Church, however, it is suitable for those following Eastern Orthodox and Anglican traditions.
