Syriac Orthodox - The Spiritual Treasure of Canonical Prayer
Do you know someplace where we can find the full sh'himo with hymns? The link you just posted only has the abridged prayers for each hour.
In can find it in Syriac only: http://www.soc-wus.org/worship/prayer.htm
The English tanslation of the Sheema is available at
http://www.lulu.com/shop/dale-a-johnson/daily-prayers-from-the-language-of-jesus/paperback/product-1476571.html
The hymns are translated as prose though. They are not translated as hymns set to the original Syriac meter.

Thanks, but its just not the same as singing the hymns in their proper tones :(. I guess I'll stick to the abridged version I have right now.

I really like the 'confiteor' with a bit of the diptychs mixed in.

I can't recall if this was linked here yet:

It's the Coptic Agpia for mobile phones.

This is probably a long shot, but does anyone know where I could find an English translation of the phenqitho? From an initial Google search, it seems that it has fallen out of popular use, and thus has not been translated, but you never know. Even an abridged version would be nice. I'm planning to purchase Bede Griffiths' translation of the Sh'himo when I have the funds.

Pray for me, a sinner.

LOL.  AFAIK, it doesn't exist.  The closest thing to it is a three volume adaptation published by the (Syro-Malankara Catholic) monastery "Kurishumala Ashram" in Kerala.  I say adaptation rather than translation because it is a version intended for use in that particular monastery and so it has its own quirks.  You can probably obtain it from them.

I don't think it's fallen out of use per se, just that wherever it is used it is used in Syriac.  It more or less fell out of use in India during the transition to vernacular liturgy (if not before).

SEERI publishes a book called Awsar Slawoto which is basically Griffiths' translation of the Sh'himo with the Syriac text on the facing page.  You might be able to order it from them and I imagine even with the international posting it may be more affordable than buying from Gorgias Press.  :P

Where does one actually purchase it? I see it listed on the SEERI website (they seem like a really cool organization), but no link to actually order it.

Try writing them.  I'm sure they can help you if you send them an email.

I emailed them awhile back and have heard no reply. Looking for other purchase options and not finding them.

Btw, has anyone ever seen a Coptic Agpeya in Coptic? I've only seen English and Arabic.

I haven't seen a coptic agpeya book either BUT, each hours is composed of the psalms, a gospel, litanies and and absolution. There are also some other prayers like the trisagion, the intro to the Creed and the Creed, the Praise of the Angels, Hail to Mary, Graciously O Lord, and the into to the midnight prayer. The psalms and gospels can be found in coptic, most of the litanies can be found in old books specially during Holy Week and Pentecost, and the other prayers can be found in the liturgy and midnight praise. All we need to find are the absolutions.:-)

Is there an english translation of the coptic liturgy? I'd love to read it.
