Pray As You Gopray-as-you-go-app-square
Available as both podcast and stand-alone app, Pray As You Go is a 12-14 minute audio meditation produced by English Jesuits. Bells, music, scripture readings, reflection questions, and prayer prompts await your daily commute or mindful chore time.
Runners-up: d356, Sacred Space, Reimagining the Examen


Our current favorite app for reading the Bible. This one handles well the challenge of simple navigation and offers an elegant and flexible reading experience. Several translations are available for free, but you can purchase CEB or NIV access for a nominal charge.
Runner-up: Bible by Olive Tree


daily-office-appDaily Office
Provides the daily prayer services from the Book of Common Prayer (Episcopal). This app, by Arglyle Software, is by far the most user-friendly, attractive, and customizable daily office app. Configure your liturgical  preferences and move on to what matters: praying. (Currently only available for Apple)
Runner-up: Electronic Common prayer by Church Publishing
