AMEN!  I couldn't agree more.  The 4 physical volumes with their assorted colored ribbons would be WAY more convenient than the Verbum version if they don't create something for the home page that essentially walks you through a given day's various hours.   Just dumping the 4 volumes into Verbum would be LESS useful than the 4 physical volumes in terms of praying the hours.  And that's why I really have wanted it in Verbum for years now in the first place - to pray it handily without having to carry that thick volume around.  Verbum isn't really the Catholic tool they want it to be without this.

I agree as well.  Universalis has figured out one way to do this.  Verbum can surely find a way!

Before you get all carried away, Verbum committed to selling the prayer book as a resource They did not commit to selling a prayer app. Anything beyond being able to navigate the prayer book at a functional level equivalent to navigating the missal will be "frosting on the cake". I don't know precisely what they will deliver but I am worried that you are setting your expectations to "unrealistic".

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

Interestingly, a search ( https://verbum.com/search?query=liturgy%20of%20the%20hours&sortBy=Relevance&limit=30&page=1&ownership=all&geographicAvailability=availableToMe ) gets "The complete, official four-volume English edition of the Liturgy of the Hours (Divine Office) presented in an easy-to-use digital interface for daily prayer." That text does not show up on https://www.logos.com/product/188341/the-liturgy-of-the-hours-according-to-the-roman-rite.

That does seem to be the “smoking gun” in this case
