All the prayers and the lectionary readings you need to pray the Daily Office or to pray shorter devotions. And it can be as traditional or modern as you like, and can be simplified or prayer with the Angelus and Regina Coeli. I’ve been using Forward Day by Day since 2018 and have watched a good app get even better. Back then I liked the basic layout and functionality, but was disappointed that I was stuck with a small font size, even if I used a larger one in my iOS default settings. That was changed a few years ago; now there is a choice of fonts, sizes, screen colors, bold/italic for responses, and even drop caps, for a nice touch. I’ve used the app at home, for meetings, when traveling, and I’ve been happy with how well it has performed. If anyone asks about devotions or the daily office, I mention this app. Sending someone to the BCP for that is just unkind, since they’re so hard to follow there. I like to support Forward Movement, for the multitude of good things they do, and with this quality app, it’s just another reason to support them.
