Orthodox Calendar for Android

Orthodox Christian Calendar app. Displays the feast, i.e. the saint of the day.

Does not require internet connection, so it will display the feast, or the saint of the day, even if you are on Sinai or Mount Athos :-)

If you have internet connection, however, you can make use of the direct links to online resources relevant to the displayed date.

The app lets you see the calendar entry for a date of your choice, both in the past and in the future!

Two versions are available on the Android Market a Russian one, which follows the old calendar, and an English one, which respects the new calendar.

  

Please note that icons are displayed only for certain feasts, don’t expect one for each day.

Also, one should not rely too much on the fasting info displayed, talk to your priest instead.

    Hi.
    I just bought from the Android market the Greek version of the Orthodox Calendar, and I found a litlle mistake. In the Chrismas vast period, every Monday it says “Xirofagia” (no oil eating), and on every Tuesday and Thursday oil and wine consuming, though in all these days fish is allowed. I hope you fix this soon in the next update.
    Congratulation for this beautiful app, and have a nice Christmas!

    • Hi Vasilis,

      thank you very much for the remark! I am aware that there exist different typikons concerning the fasting, that’s why I made the remark not to take the fasting notes of the app too literary. The typikon I know is as you are describing: during the nativity fast, xirofagia on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and fish only Saturday and Sunday, and on the bigger feasts.

      If you have some resource for the typicon which I can refer to, I would correct the app appropriately.

      Regards, glad you like the app. Kala Xristougena!

    Hi! I’ve bought russian version. Nice app, but where are widgets?

    • The widgets are added to the homescreen in the regular fashion, like any other widget.

      In case you don’t see the Orthodox Calendar widget in your list of available widgets, make sure the app is installed in device memory and not on the SD card – that is a limitation of the Android system, no wigdets are available for apps installed on the external memory.

  3. Glory to Jesus Christ! Hello. I downloaded the English version; however I cannot find how to access the settings. I am using an LG G3. Thank you. God bless.
