After weeks of waiting and wondering, I’m delighted to report that the folks behind the excellent Liturgy of the Hours app, Divine Office, have just released a version for the Kindle Fire.
It’s been available for iPad and Android phones for a while; I have it on my EVO smartphone, and it’s superb: clear, hassle-free, easy to navigate and read. Now, in the larger form for a Kindle Fire, it’s more breviary-sized and reader-friendly. It will be a welcome traveling companion — lighter and infinitely more portable than Christian Prayer or the old LOTH. You can slip on headphones or earbuds and listen to an audio version, too, complete with hymns and chants.Curious? Check out the Divine Office website. You can even take it for a test drive at the Amazon link.
The price is $14.99, but I think it’s money well-spent.
While you’re app-surfing, you might want to check out as well the Daily Missal app, iMissal. It’s available for iPhones and Android phones — though, alas, not yet for Kindle.
But I’m praying.
