Anyone know of a calendar app/mobile web site for the OCA similar to the "Daily Readings" app that the Greek archdiocese has out?  I want something that tells you the scripture readings, feasts and saints, as well as the fasting rule for the day just like the Greek one.  The OCA website is close, but doesnt have all 3 in the same place.  The only reason I want an OCA one rather than a Greek one is because I noticed the Greek and OCA sometimes (though its rare) have different fasting guidelines.  According to my OCA wall calendar, there may be a day where wine and oil are allowed but the Greek one says no wine or oil.  I just want one I can take with me.

There is one that can be set for the New Calendar. It is made by Russians, so the fasting is the same style as the OCA. See a review, a screenshot and a link to download it can be found from here.

If you are really interested in doing something like this I'd recommend contacting the OCA & offering your help

I have to figure out first how to create an app.  Telling my priest would be easy.

I haven't really done coding in years  Grin but I have been interested in making Church apps for a while now.  I've always dreamed of having some sort of e-Service Book where you'll have the text of the Divine Liturgy and all the appropriate variable parts for the day are inserted in-line.  Beats having a book that you have to flip back and forth, easier too for people new to the Divine Liturgy.

It would be great if the OCA had an app as nice and functional as the Greek one.  Id love to make it happen, but I have ZERO clue how to make an app...

Awesome. Thanks!  I already already had that one downloaded and didnt realize it. Ha.  It was lost in the mix with all my other apps I seemed to have forgotten about.

There are some free app builders you can download but they can be fairly difficult if you've never done any programming.

The true Orthodox way of thought has always been historical, has always included the past, but has never been enslaved by it. . . for the strength of the Church is not in the past, present, or future, but in Christ.
