iBreviary & Praybook

Mark: Apropos of nothing, I just found this rather elaborate comment by a priest with an Italian-looking name wishing to publicise a prayer application he made.

I'm down with that, so I cleaned up the English a bit and gave it its own entry.

Dear Sirs,
Editing and Friends of iBreviary,

iBreviary, as you know, is a new application for the iPhone, available immediately in Spanish, French, English, Latin and Italian. iBreviary offers the possibility, simply and in perfect "Apple style", to pray on the go with the prayers of the Breviary.

It also offers the readings of the Mass of the day, as well as the principal Catholic prayers. The application, created by me together with the technician and developer Dimitri Giani, has received the praise and the encouragement of the Vatican.

iBreviary has now reached its third update. This update brings important changes:
- application available in Italian and English versions
- available readings in English, French, Spanish, Latin and in the Ambrosian Rite
- possibility to pray the Compieta of the previous day

The application is available from the app store for the price of 79 cents (Euro) which will go to charity. (

Also, Facebook will have its own "digital Breviary". Its name is "Praybook" and it's available as an application on the most important social networking site in the world. The application allows online prayer with the same prayers as iBreviary.

Thanks for everything.
