PHILADELPHIA, PA: Orthodox Prayerbook app for iPhone now available
The Orthodox Prayerbook app for iPhone, authored by Gabriel Otte, a MD, PhD Candidate at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, is now available from www.gabrielotte.com/prayerbook. “I wrote the app because I wanted to be able to check whether today was a fast day or not or who the daily saints were,” says Otte. “The application works for the OCA and Greek and Antiochian Archdioceses. In addition to featuring prayers, app users will be able to maintain a list of people for whom they pray — living and departed — that automatically embeds the names into the prayers in the appropriate places.” Proceeds from sale of the app — currently available for a mere $0.99 — will be used to initiate a FOCUS Philadelphia Center [Fellowship of Orthodox Christians United in Service], which Otte is spearheading.
