It gives me great pleasure to introduce iAlhan app, available on the app store itms://itunes.apple.com/us/app/ialhan/id388835595?mt=8
This application allows streaming, downloading of various hymns with Coptic and English lyrics and is now available on the app store.
I noticed that you can highlight the Coptic text - I tried to copy/paste it but it ended up just as English letters in any other app. I was just wondering, since you figured out how to put Coptic text on the iPhone, is an app that lets you type in Coptic possible? If you could, that would open up some big opportunities for language revival.
God bless :)

The application should work on the iPad, although it was not designed for it like any other iPhone/iPod application.
As for typing in Coptic, that could be done but within an app that has the font embedded (like iAlhan), but to share the text, apple will need to add the coptic as an alternative language under internationalization settings.
In terms of android support, I am looking into that.
Pray for me

Once it's recorded it could get added and you should get the updates automatically once you start the app without the need for an upgrade.
God willing we are thinking to start with adding psalm, psalm response, as well as psalm 150 for Advent, after which we need to add Resurrection and Pentecost.
The next step is annual hymns, then we will take Tasbeha one section at a time starting with Sat and Sun.
Please pray for me
