 I couldn't find an Orthodox Calendar mobile app to my liking, so decided to make one

I'm adding some screenshots of functionality below. Couldn't add a video as platform doesn't allow it.

Screenshots of Orthodox Calendar mobile app (development WIP v0.2.0):

I wanted to download an Orthodox calendar but couldn’t find anything with a design to my liking. Most of them look pretty old and unintuitive. My friend and I decided to implement the calendar ourselves. And as we got to a point when we can show something, we decided to share it for those who might be interested. The app is still in development and we haven’t released it yet. Hopefully the initial version is coming this month.

The calendar gives you an opportunity to see feasts, saints and fast types for every day to keep track of major events and help with fasts.
So far we've designed basic features of the app (calendar view, settings). We’ve collaborated with a designer and are working on updating the app UI (as of now it’s more of a draft version). Also, some extra features like notifications are under development. I'll add some more technical info in the comments.
If you are interested in this app, please participate in a survey here. You can leave your feedback there and submit an email for us to contact you when the app is released. Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments too. Your suggestions are welcomed!


Some additional info about the app.

It’s being developed for both Android and iOS
The app supports the following languages:
  • English
  • Russian
  • Ukrainian
Some insights and trivia:
  • Only the Android version has been tested so far. iOS will be coming with future updates.
  • We considered adding a Greek translation as well. It’s on hold for now because I haven’t yet found a person to help with translation (and I experienced first hand that we can’t rely on Google Translate for sure)
  • We’ve created a Facebook channel (can't attach a link here, sorry. Please, use the form above for email communication above and you can ask for Facebook there if you want) for more casual audiences there
  • The development has actually been going for half of a year now, most of it was preparations of different sorts. Really hope we can get it out soon and work from there.
