This is one of the apps I use the most, but since the update on July 22, 2016, I have not been able to access the menus and there's a wide black bar on the right side of the screen. Please fix the app! I'm running an iPad Air on iOS 9.

Outstanding. It looks like some people are experiencing crashes, but it is working flawlessly on my iPhone 4and iPad q, both running 4.3.1. As for the app itself, I can't think of a single way to improve it. It's that good.

Reading the reviews, I'd like to thank "reviewer" Paul T McCain for "checking with the publisher" about the crash issue some reviewers had reported.

A bit pricey, but for me, worth the cost. I so appreciate the resource, as one can't always carry devotional books around. Keeps me centered, as any good devotional should.

Please restore the previous settings. The current Pray Now app is virtually unreadable on an iPad.
Alexa_1991's Review of PraynowReviewed on 9/5/19 2:09 PM
Latest version crashes immediately, is unusable. REVIEW OF 2.0: Version 2.0 adds two awesome features: 1) The readings, Psalms, etc. plug in to the right place in the daily offices (you have to go into the settings to enable this); 2) it’s now a universal binary, meaning if you view it on an iPad, it’s optimized for the iPad without having to buy a separate app. Thank you, CPH! My review of 1.0: CPH has released PrayNow, an application that brings the Treasury of Daily Prayer to your iPhone/iTouch/iPad. It’s a very reasonable $8.99. PrayNow works in a simple, efficient way, minimizing the amount of navigation; it’s as easy to switch back and forth from prayer office to the psalms/readings/collect of the day/etc. as it is in the big book; perhaps easier, because there’s no bookmarking to be done: a simple calendar selection wheel takes you right to the day’s readings. (Someone did the hard work of slogging through the dates for the portion of the book directly tied to the church year; to test it I entered a date in late March, 2011, and it took me to a Saturday in Lent. Excellent work!) For now, there is only Matins/Vespers/Compline; I’m hoping that a future release will add some of the other offices. There are a couple of typos in the Compline office, which I’m sure will also get ironed out in a future release. It works fine on the iPad, too, although it’s not a universal binary. In other words, it isn’t optimized for the iPad; what you get is the iPhone app, in the usual iPhone size, with the option to double it. I almost never do that, because it gets pixelly (is that a word?). In fact, I eschew iPhone apps on my iPad, but I’ll be making an exception in this case. It’s become, along with Logos and Olive Tree, a vital app. I’ll still be using the big book most of the time, but this is perfect for traveling, spare moments that otherwise get spent playing Galcon checking email checking fantasy team scores reading, and for those nights when you collapse into bed without having said your prayers (please tell me I’m not the only one who does that…). Highly recommended for anyone wanting a disciplined life of Prayer and meditation on the Scriptures.

I love this application. I would rate 5 stars if I was able to print.
Luther962's Review of PraynowReviewed on 9/5/19 2:09 PM
This is a Great App, that I use every day! We need more apps like this from Concordia. One great update would be to include the readings from the Book of Concord rather than just referencing the pages to read. I would love to have it all in one App. I am certainly looking for an update! No update as of yet. Another feature that is needed is the ability to highlight text in the app for quick reference, I use this app with a morning prayer group, and it would be nice to have the highlight feature.
PaulTMcCain's Review of PraynowReviewed on 9/5/19 2:09 PM
I've read a couple comments reporting that the app crashes, not sure what people are talking about. I'm running PrayNow on my iPhone 4 and my iPad 1 and iPad 2 without any issues, at all, and I'm running the latest version of iOS on all my devices. Sure would be nice if anyone saying they are experiencing crashes would contact the App's publisher to let them know precisely what's going on, rather than posting vague comments on Apple's iTune's site. I checked with the publisher, Concordia Publishing House, and they say that they are not able to replicate any crashes, PrayNow is working fine on their iPhones, iPad and iTouches, all of which are running the latest version of iOS and PrayNow, without any problems.
dcejason's Review of PraynowReviewed on 9/5/19 2:09 PM
CPH did a great job on this app. (I hope more are coming!) I've been a Daily Lectionary reader for some time now. I used to get my readings from the Lutheran Service Book. That's always been a great way to do a morning devotion... NOW I have the PrayNow app, which gives me my daily readings plus so much more. Definitely a 4-star app for any Lutheran, its a bit pricey but worth it to me. The only thing I'm missing is a midi or mp3 for the hymns, and the ability to copy/paste a bit of Scripture into my Twitter tweets or Facebook. Keep up the good work, CPH!
