Updated version of the Syriac Orthodox Prayer App Qleedo+

Quote
In the name of the Father, and the Son and the Holy Spirit, one true God.

The moment has finally arrived! Please update your phone to the latest Qleedo+ version 4.0 on either iOS or Android. A bunch of great new feature have been added including parish finder, adding favourites, parish based notifications and seamless switching between various languages.

Most importantly, Qleedo+ has integrated the audio track of services directly into the app. Now everyone can listen to & practice chanting the hymns of various Feasts of the Church in accordance with the correct tone. Seen below in a screenshot from the service of Pentecost in Malayalam & English (Both Malayalam and English audio added, Syriac to be integrated soon)
To access the audio, download the latest version of Qleedo+ 4.0 from your respective app store. Then open up the 'Sacraments' tab, click 'Festivals' then choose the appropriate service. Click the 📣 button to switch on the audio track & listen now. You'll need to have mobile data or WiFi access to listen. (if you already have version 4 installed and are facing issues, please uninstall the app, clear your cache and then reinstall)

Thanks to the commendable efforts of Chev Biju Daniel for transcribing the service of Pentecost from the Andu thaksa to the app. Also heartfelt felicitations to Dn. Akhil Joy, faculty of Mor Aphrem Syriac Music Institute (MASMI) for graciously lending his voice to chant the hymns in the correct tone according to the Beth Gazo.

Qleedo+ is a Syriac Orthodox Church mobile application recognized and blessed by His Holiness Patriarch Mor Ignatius Aphrem II It includes the Syriac Orthodox liturgical calendar with Feasts, Fasts and Saints commemorations and Lectionary with built in Holy Bible. Qleedo+ app has integrated the Daily Prayers (Sh'himo & Pampakuda) in Syriac, Malayalam & English/Manglish. The app also has the service books for Feasts, Sacraments & respective Sundays of the year.

No, it depends on ~/.religion/orthodox/theopaschite.lib or on Windows systems the registry key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Orthodox\Oriental = True

So when it finds the orthodox dir in the library tree or the Orthodox branch hnder HKEY_CURRENT_USER to be non-existant, it will throw the exception EIHERETIC, and segfault.

Attempts to work around the problem by posting the correct library in /lib or /root or HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE will fail, because the machine can't be Orthodox or Maronite, and the root user could be anybody.

Note the above is all entirely untrue and an example of hacker humour in the grand tradition of the Jargon File or the UNIX Hater's Handbook.

I have been waiting for this forever.   A Syriac version of Coptic Reader.   Now someone just needs to make an app for the Byzantine Rite (and the Armenian and Ethiopian, in due course).   A pious deceased Catholic wrote a semi-automatic app for the old Tridentine Latin Rite which is available on the web, and of course the Anglican BCP, Maronite and Novus Ordo are simplified to the point where one hardly needs an app in order to follow the services (in the case of the Novus Ordo, given the endless array of priest-selectable arbitrary variations in the service, such an app, one that spits out definitive rubrics, hymns and prayers for a given service, with a 100% chance that that service text would be used exactly, would be impossible, in that the rite is basically non-deterministic, unless we first can read the mind of the celebrant and/or invent time travel).

Thank you so much for all the positive responses!  :angel: The app is still a work in progress of course, with lots of work left to do. Thankfully, we have a small but dedicated team comprising of laity and clergy from various dioceses across the world volunteering as editors etc who contribute to the app's completion. Please do keep everyone involved with the project in your prayers.  :)
