Newly released MarenHoos Android App, a Coptic Pandora!


MarenHoos is a Coptic phrase which means “let us praise”. began as an idea in January of 2011 to organize and create playlists for audio files that interested the user. It originally began because of a great need for online organized database of all audio of the Coptic church. MarenHoos was then initiated to serve as a solution to organize, play, and share all Coptic audio files.

You can get it from the Android Market!
