 http://universalis.com/ remains my favorite although I still use an app no longer available on my Kindle.

What's the difference between this and the paid app?

Does Logos do this any justice presently? What would FL need to do here to make the experience better than the Kindle item no.longer available?

Could they create something to deliver the full experience and have it scheduled to land with each item throughout the day so it automatically feeds the readings and prayers at the precise times?

while I cannot speak to what is going to be available in the Verbum implementation of the Loth. Universalis does have these options.  I have looked at several loth apps and have not found one better than universalis. That is not to say others are not good and have muc to offer but universalis was the first and seem best in my mind.

Basically the apps fall into the following flavors:

  1. Those that simply provide the texts in sequence to be prayed.
  2. Those that provide the text and a group recitation in which you join.
  3. Those that provide the text and chant the prayers in the usually responsorial manner.

They also differ in the countries to which they comply ... it is common for them to default to the UK liturgical calendar. I am such a night owl that I have never looked into whether an app assigns an appropriate clock time.
