Psalter App

iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch

This App is based on the Psalter chapter in the 1979 Book of Common Prayer (Episcopal Church) beginning on page 581. The purpose of the App is to provide easy access to 150 Psalms available using a simple to use interface. I hope you and your family find this App spiritually enriching for your souls and enjoy it as much as I do with my family. 

Below is more information about the features available with this app.

To the left is the opening screen (or splash screen as it is often referred to) that you are presented with after you launch the application.

This app also displays in full screen on the iPad.

This app was designed to be used without an internet connection. Therefore, all 150 Psalms are provided. 


Immediately after the splash screen is displayed, the last Psalm selected is displayed (or Psalm 1 if running the app for the first time). To view another Psalm, simply click the Psalm Index button in the upper left of the display to access the Psalm Index table.

Also available on the bottom of this display is the options toolbar for performing various features including:

  • < button - Selecting the previous Psalm
  • Action button - Sending the selected Psalm to Messenger, Mail, Facebook, etc
  • Font button - Changing the desired display font
  • Info button - Obtaining more information about the Psalter
  • > button - Selecting the next Psalm

To change readings, tap the > button, or touch and drag the right page margin to turn the page to the new reading. To return to a previous reading, tap the < button, or touch and drag the left page margin to turn the page backwards.

The Psalms Index table provides quick access to all 150 psalms.  Simply slide your finger up to view the other Psalms Books available. 

Once you have found the desire Psalm number, simply click on it to choose it for display in the Psalter display (shown previously).

The choice you make will be retained should you decide to close the app and reopen it later. The last displayed Psalm is automatically selected upon relaunching the app.

Also available is the ability to email family and friends the currently selected Psalm.  Simply click the Action button to send the current prayer to:

  • Email
  • Message
  • Twitter (link only due to limit of 140 characters)
  • Facebook
  • Pasteboard (Copy)
  • Other apps that are supported by iOS 8

The Font button (available on the Psalter display) provides access to all fonts available on your device. This screen is divided into three section:

  • Psalm text area for observing selected font and size appearance
  • Font Size selection control
  • Font Face selection control

After choosing a desired font face and size, simply click the Save button in the upper left to retain the desired font choice.

Selecting the info button in the options toolbar displays the Concerning the Psalter display providing background information about the Psalter.
