Pocket Prayer Pro


Announcement!
For those who are looking for Pocket Prayer Pro Guideline, please click the following link.



Latest updates
Great news! We have added the ability to add/modify/delete the sample prayers! This is the most requested feature and we believe this update will bring you even closer to God. Not only that, you are able to add/modify/delete the categories of the sample prayers. So what are you waiting? Download them now!

Note: After you have made an update from iTunes, remember to force quit the app first if you are using iOS4 which supports multitasking where app is running in the background.


Pocket Prayer Pro is a fully featured prayer request manager that is integrated with over hundreds of sample prayers to guide your daily devotional with God. Too many prayer requests but not able to manage them properly? Missed out some important prayers? Pocket Prayer Pro is here to help you to put them in place.

I am listening to your requests, so please drop by and let me know what improvements you want to see in this app in order to serve you better!

My concentrations now is on iPhone and iPod user. So, for those who wish that Pocket Prayer Pro to be build into iPad or even Android, do pass the good news to your friends in Church. This is because, the higher the demand of people using Pocket Prayer Pro, the possibility of iPad version or other platforms version are higher! ;)

Always remember me in prayers, that I will continue to improve this app and may God grant me vision and direction of this app all the time. Thanks a lot.

Let's pray! May God bless you all, prayer warriors!

  1. I downloaded your Pocket Prayer Lite, and it really help me a lot on my daily devotion, But one thing that i want to request on the lite version, can you put some additional functionality like NOTES, where we can put some text to a certain category..

    Thanks for the app:)

    ReplyDelete
  2. Hi Hannah, thanks for dropping by. I have thought of building your request into both the lite and the pro version. I have also intended to modify, so that you can add/edit extra categories and add/edit sample prayers to each of the category.

  3. Love this app. How about a backup or sync feature? Seems essential to me. Also would like ability to set "today" as the start screen.

    ReplyDelete
  4. Due to the overwhelming demands, yes the backup feature is in the plan.

    set "Today" as the startup screen - part of the plan.

    Stay tuned!

  6. The app store just installed my update yesterday. All of the requests that I had input are now gone. I'm fairly certain that there is no way to get them back, but if you have any suggestions I'd appreciate it. Thanks!

  7. Hi Richard,

    The bug is fixed and it's submitted to Apple for a few days of review before it will be released. No data lost at this point, so you do not need to re-entry anything until the next updates. Anyway, you can still continue to add new prayer request without any problems.

    Sincere apology for any inconvenience caused.

    Regards,
    Pocket Prayer Pro

  9. I have a long list of requests - please don't be disheartened, this is THE BEST prayer app in the iTunes store by far. I love it and I use it every day, I've always wanted to keep a prayer journal but hated writing things down (and never seemed to have paper & pen when praying!) and Pocket Prayer has been an answer to prayer (huh, kind of funny...). I don't use the pre-written prayers, but the rest is really really great. If anyone is reading this having got PockedPrayer Lite and wondering if PP Pro is worth buying, it 100% absolutely is. Every time it updates I'm always excited to see what new features are there and almost every time I think "I wish I could..." it turns out the feature came in the last update and I just haven't looked properly!

    Onto my wishlist.

    It would be really great if there was an "archive" option for prayers, so that those no longer on rotation didn't have to be deleted (essentially a "schedule" option of "never" that would give an option like Overdue, Drafts etc).

    I'd also love to be able to edit the Requests page to remove things, not just move them around (I don't have a need for the Answered and Not Answered options, for example).

    Also it would be great if editing a prayer didn't make it "un-prayed" again.

    In Preferences, the item "Today Prayer Request" under "Application Startup Show" is not very clear about what it does. It appears to change the "requests" button down the bottom to showing the "today" list, but what it looks like it should do is that regardless of the status of the "prayer request" slider, the app will show the today list on startup.

    One option to solve this would be to have separate bubbles (with the same functionality as now), where the "today prayer requests" is changed to a big heading (outside the bubble) of "Requests Button" and the on-off switch labeled "Show Today List".
    Alternatively keeping the current layout, if "prayer request" is set to "off" then "today prayer request" should be disabled. The "requests" button should then open the standard requests pane (not the Today list) regardless of these settings.

    It would be nice to have font sizes down to 10px as an option. 16px seems very large to my young (near-sighted) eyes. It would also be cool to have Arial Rounded MT Bold and Zapfino as font options.

    Last one! It would be cool if a side-swipe on a prayer went to the next prayer in the list like the buttons down the bottom :)

    Thanks again Roland!

  11. I really like your app, but I have not been able to "restore" to the pay version the "backup" from my lite version. Is that not possible. If not, it should be so users don't have to manually enter evething again. If it IS possible. do you have any suggestions as to whay it isn't workiing for me?

    ReplyDelete
  12. Good day Carolyn,

    Yes, it is possible to backup from lite version and restore them to the pay version.

    Do you mind to send me the backup file that you have back'ed up to your google docs? The following are the steps. Do email me if you are lost at some point.

    Login to GoogleDocs and once you've login, on your left panel, you will see a folder "Pocket Prayer Pro"-> "Backup" (its sub folder). Click on the "Backup" sub folder and you will see a list of backup files you have. Click the checkbox on the latest backup file(normally it's at the top most). Then on the top menu, there is a button called "Share", click on it and choose "Email as attachment...". Then send it to yientau@gmail.com and I shall be able to check on your problem.

    Hope to hear from you soon and God bless you :-)

  14. Hi,
    I downloaded Pocket Prayer Pro last night, seems to be a great application.
    When I saw you could sync with GoogleDocs, I thought I maybe able to input data via GoogleDocs, but the doc produced is like a coding page.
    Is there a way of inputting data from the PC?
    Cheers, Dom

  15. Hi Dom,

    Apparently there is no way you can input them from a PC. You have to input your data through the application.

  30. Hello - fantastic app - use it every morning.

    Bug : The new feature to mark as prayed in Todays list view - the tick has to be touched twice before it turns green,

    Request : In the page by page view it would be easier if the tick was down the bottom, and if triggering the tick turned the page. Now it is tap the tick in the top, then tap the page turner at the bottom.

    Request : Ability to add own prayers and scriptures

    Again, this app rocks. I previously had a list system in Listomni and it was great but including the prayers is great. And I regularly email people straight from the app.

    Thanks!

  31. Hi Deb,

    Regarding the bug you were saying, I think it's not really a bug. If you press it correctly, it should trigger it to check. I have tried it from my end but can't re-produce it.

    Regarding your requests, I will think about it and keep them in my development queue for future enhancement. :)

    Thanks again for using it. GBU!

  32. Restore of backup is apparently still broken in some cases. I upgraded from Lite to Pro yesterday. Made a backup from the Lite version, and Pro would not restore it. Entered a request on the Pro version, did a backup, and Pro will not restore that either. Error the same in both cases.

    3GS running 4.0
    Error on restore from Google: "Error in processing backup - *** - [NSArray objectAtIndex:]: index 1 beyond bounds [0 .. 0]"

  33. Hi dcbii,

    I have just checked and it seems like Google Docs has changed their service and thus causing error to the app. I can't make this a quick fix but will look into this asap.

    This might be iTunes issue with syncing, but I am not too sure. Do you mind restarting your iPod and try to sync them again? You were saying it isn't syncing, do you mean the app doesn't appear in your iTunes?

  37. Dear all,

    I have searched the entire Internet and at last, I have found out that it's a Google's bug causing the wrong document type returned from their service and thus causing the error.

  44. @Rhnda,

    When the application launch, it will goes into "Today" prayer request list. So, in order to go to the main screen, you need to tap "Request" button at the top left and it will bring you to the main screen. Once you are at the main screen, you will be able to see the "+" button at the top right. Then tap on the "+" button to bring up a new prayer request form. There are a several fields within the form, all of them are optional. There is one section "Schedule", where you can select what type of schedule you would wish this prayer to be prayed for. After you have entered everything, tap "save" button on the right of the screen.

    Happy trying and GBU

  46. Tried the lite then bought, great app.

    I have one issue and a suggestion.

    When I try and edit items (Answered, Not answered, etc) on the main Request page by putting "Set Visible" to "off", they're still visible. When I go back to the setting it's back to "on".

    I would like the option to have a white background instead of the tree background.

    Thanks for your work!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I am using the app with pleasure. However, I have one thing to ask you concerning the emoticon faces. I know it's somewhat theological issue, but I know you can fix it. The issue is... "Not Answered." Even if the prayer request is not answered, we can smile in faith and hope. So I ask you to change the face with "smile" but "closed eyes", which might signify to keep praying in hope and faith.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Hi Tuey,

    The said issue of set visible for a particular section has been fixed. You may download the latest updates from iTunes and let me know if this works for you.

    Hi Caritas,

    With the latest updates, you are able to change the icon for answered and unanswered. Go to the main screen of "Request" and tap "Edit" button and tap on the blue arrow icon for answered or unanswered section. A new screen will appear for you to change the icon. I have a limited icon for the moment and will find more to suit everyone's need. Your idea of closing eyes sounds interesting! Let me try and see if I can get the icon.

    Cheers

  49. Hi Roland,
    Thanks a ton for this app! I searched a while for a prayer app and this one stands above the rest.
    Question... On the Full Version, I've edited lots of the categories, but they don't change the categories on the home page. Am I missing something or do the home page categories never change?
    Again, thanks so much. Love this app.

  50. Hi Richard,

    First of all, thanks for supporting this app! :)

    FYI, the home page categories and the prayer request categories are two totally different things. So you can't change anything from the home categories. I am planning to make the home category as well as the prayer requests to be editable. That's the plan. I will see what I can do.

    Again, thanks for your support! Do let your friends know about the good news :)

    The zip file that you have downloaded into your computer is a password protected file. I do not want the user to mess up the files, that's why I have use a password to protect the file from being decompressed.

    No, you can't do that for the moment. But there is no plan for this right now.

  58. Answered Prayers
    Iconic answered prayers assumes that we either received or didn't receive what we have asked for.
    Maybe...God chose to answer our prayers in ways that we never even thought of.
    Could you add an "Answered Prayer" text area to write how God chose to answer our prayers...
    Instead of just a yes or No Iconic answer

  60. First, thanks for this great app. I have found it very useful.

    The one suggestion I have is this: It seems that the app is mostly geared towards praying for a list of things/categories (which you place in the "Title" section). You can then add specific people to pray for under that category and even make notes - all that is great. What I would like to see is instead of praying through a list of categories, praying through a list of people. So there would be a new request (page) for each person, and then under that person's name a list of individual requests. It would also be great if each request under the name could have its own individual "answered/unanswered" option as there may be multiple requests under one name.

    Thanks,

    ReplyDelete
  61. I am just trying out the lite version right now and so far I think it's great! I agree with Drew above who suggested the ability to have several requests associated with a particular person. But more than this, what would really make this app perfect for me would be the ability to incorporate a prayer journal. For example, if I have a prayer request set up to pray for my husband every day, it would be great to be able to write and save a note or journal entry about what I prayed for him each day. I would definitely love that and would totally tell everyone to buy it! :)

  62. Prayer pro is the best prayer app and I loved it when I had but I switched to htc evo phone and cant find it. Is this app on android? If not, is there any plans for this? I loved this app me and my husband used it to say daily prayers together as well as keep track of prayers.

    @MeJustBeingMe, I have no plan for Android yet. I want to concentrate on iPhone/iPod platform for the time being.

    @Ricky, can you force quit the app and relaunch it again? I believe you have made an update from iTunes and not yet force quit the app after doing it.

  69. Hi Roland. Peace be with you. Firstly thank you very much for your Prayer Pro product. I really appreciate it. Would love to ask for a couple of features;

    IPAD
    Would love to use a full size version of this on the iPad.

    Backup Restore
    I do sync between my iDevices the problem is sometimes as I travel I find myself updateing & backing up on the fly as i meet people. I am not quite sure which is the most current version on my devices, without having to go through all my. Prayer requests. Would it be possible to show when the last update was on the backup / restore screen for example; last back up 12/01/2011 22:34hrs Last restore 07/01/2011 10:54hrs that way we could compare the devices to see
    which had the latest backup.

    +1 for a notes area. Especially when doing silent prayer/meditation it would be nice to be able to write notes / thoughts etc.

    If the notes format could be similar to the prayer request style eg. Some configurable drop downs like categories / bible book chapter verses / names / date etc.

    Quite a big wish list but thank you for what you have done and for anything else you do in the future.

    His peace and grace keep you always.

    Thank you for this prayer app. It is the best I have found, and amazingly useful. I have an idea, not a request, just an idea.

    I've just download your application. It's really thoughtful, and has a very nice design. I was really happy to find your application cause I've been trying to organise my prayers for a long time now.

    I would like to make a suggestion, please, It would be lovely if we could link add our favourite bible quotes with our own prayer requests - I normally read some parts of the bible to remember God's promises when I am praying for my requests, and believe many people do that to remember and get strength from that.

    many thanks,

    1. Hi Tuey,

      Google has changed their API and causing the GoogleDocs failed to work as it should. After a long thought, we have decided to drop GoogleDocs and replace it with Dropbox. It's a tough decision but we are looking for a long term maintainability as GoogleDocs has gone too far complex compare to Dropbox.

      The latest release has the Dropbox capability but has a major bug that cause Scheduler to be unable to set. So, wait until version 3.2 which is targeting to be released a week from now.

      Hope this helps.

  80. Great app Roland, but had some trouble with scheduling after updating the app yesterday. Now when I press the schedule tab on the individual prayer request form, the programme exits and I end up on the Ipod touch screen.

    Any suggestions for a solution?

    1. Duncan,

      This is fixed as of yesterday. I have already submitted the updates to Apple for review and this may take a week or earlier(hopefully) before you can get the updates.

      Stay tuned!

  82. Hi!
    I absolutely love your app and use it everyday! Just a few questions out of curiosity...

    1) Under the 9 types of summary of prayer request (All Requests, Not Prayed, Not Answered, Answered, Today, Overdue, Category, Scheduled, Drafts) can the lists (All Requests, Not Prayed, Not Answered, and Category) be put in some type of order like by name or by calendar date or maybe be reordered manually? I'm not talking about the summary lists, but the prayers within the lists themselves. I was wondering because I have about 59 people on my list that I pray for at specific times throughout the year for different reasons and an ordered list would make it easier to find them in the list if I need to change or add something in my prayers for them.

    2) Will there ever be an iPad version of the app.

    3) I'm curious why nothing ever shows up in my 'Overdue' list even if I miss a date (for example, if I schedule to pray for something on a specific day of the week, every week or if I'm praying for something on a specific day of the year, every year).

    4) Is it possible to have a report of all the different times I prayed for the different requests other than just when I created the prayer, the most recent time I prayed it, and when it was answered?

    5) Why, on the "Requests" summary screen, doesn't a summary number ever show up in the "Not Prayed" or the "Overdue" sections when I miss a pre-scheduled day? It only seems to show up on 'Not Answered,' 'Answered,' and 'Today.'

    Just curious about these few things. I have been thoroughly enjoying your app on my iPad 2. Thanks for having such a fantastic idea to create this app.

    Thanks,

    Angela

    1. I'm wonder the same thing as number 3 above. Why does nothing ever show up in overdue? If I have a request scheduled for one day a month and I miss that day, then the person will not be prayed for that month. Help

    2. Hi Angela,

      First of all, apologize for my late reply. I am really tie up by my two young toddlers and could hardly reach my machine :(

      Anyway, let me respond to your questions one by one as follows.

      1. I will put this in my todo list.

      2. iPad version for sure. I can't promise when but latest by next year. Sorry about the delay, do pray for me :)

      3. The overdue will only appear for those prayer requests that are scheduled and have not been mark as prayed at the date that you have set.

      4. I will put this in my todo list.

      5. I will refine the logic for "not prayed".

      God bless.

  83. Hi Roland, I own an iPad 2, which I carry with me, a Blackberry Torch smart phone for business purposes, but at home I have an iMac. I need to add prayer requests on the run so I imagine my Blackberry is out of the picture and I need the iPad app. Prayer at home at a table or desk is comfortable, so the iPad makes much sense. Will a Blackberry app ever be out there and how soon do you see the iPad coming?

    1. Hi,

      I am sorry to say that I will not be writing one for Blackberry but the iPad version is for sure.

  84. Thank you so much for this App! It is an answered prayer. I echo the requests for an iPad app and for real time sync between devices. They are several great models for syncing across devices out there. Check out Grocery iQ (this is ideal because you can input on web, iPhone, iPad, etc and you can also share account with spouse so all devices are insync real time), 1Password (automatic Dropbox sync - can also share account with spouse so you have common list), omnifocus (sync via MobileMe/iCloud). Thanks again!

  85. Preferences > Backup or Restore > Dropbox
    Is this for the current Preferences settings or for the actual prayer items? When I did a backup to Dropbox and looked at the file in Notepad, it looked like it was just the main settings and sample prayers. I just input 9 scheduled prayer requests for the future and didn't see them in that file.


    The Help file is still listing Google Docs as the backup method instead of Dropbox.

    I was unable to locate a version number to include ... but I don't show that I have a pending update on this app in my App Store.

    1. Hi Ron,

      Can you try that again? I cannot reproduce them. The prayer requests should be included as well. A more recent user told me the backup and restore is working fine.

    2. I just tested by doing a backup and then a restore and it failed. I then unlinked, linked again and retested. Worked fine the second time. Thanks!

  93. Is there any possibility you will be writing an Android app for Pocket Prayer any time soon? I love this app and have been using it for a long time, however recently switched to an Android phone. My only complaint about the whole phone is not being able to have Pocket Prayer. No other prayer/prayer journal app for Android even comes close to yours! Please consider making Pocket Prayer available on Android? I'd pay for it!!! God Bless!!!

  98. Hi, I used to use the Lite version of the app on my iPhone some time ago, so confidently downloaded the Pro version the other day. Only to find that the app wont open at all. I realized no updates have been made to the app since 2012! Could you please look into why the app won't open. I use an iPhone 3GS, on iOS version 6.1.3
