Liber Al vel Legis - Android App
Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law
Liber AL vel Legis is the central sacred text of θέλημα [Thelema], written by Aleister Crowley, who claimed it was dictated to him by a discarnate entity named "Aiwass".
The full title of the book is Liber AL vel Legis, sub figura CCXX, as delivered by XCIII=418 to DCLXVI, and it is commonly referred to as The Book of the Law. Through the reception of this book, Crowley proclaimed the arrival of a new stage in the spiritual evolution of humanity, to be known as the "Æon of Horus".
The primary precept of this new aeon is the charge to "Do what thou wilt".
The book contains three chapters, each of which was written down in one hour, beginning at noon, on 8 April, 9 April, and 10 April in Cairo, Egypt, in the year 1904.
This application is brought to you in association with The Irish Order of Thelema.
This is the version that has "fill me" in the text.
Another "kill me" correction app is currently being developed.

I made this myself, with limited knowledge of Android coding, so it is basic and the interface could be a hell of a lot better. At least it is something to work with. Also a bit of PR for the Order with which I am affiliated Hope you enjoy it.

I have downloaded this to my android phone, but I'm wondering what was the source for the text?
I noticed immediately in verses 10 & 11 of chapter 1, there are two ampersands replaced by the word 'and', which differs from the traditional text (e.g. seen on the OTO website). I have not done an exhaustive comparison yet to look for other ampersand omissions, but these discrepancies have me questioning the accuracy of the source document used.
Thank you for pointing this out threefold31. I will look into this and revise if required. I was informed that it was taken from the OTO 100yr anniversary edition.
The errors may have occurred via the copy and paste into a third party application builder software.

good job paul 🙂 and big ups to the irish order 😀
Yes, perhaps the ampersands turned into 'and' on a random basis? Looking further, I found 13 instances of this, but also a couple extra words added, such as 'will' instead of 'shall' in verse 3:19, 'and this' instead of '&' in 3:27, an apostrophe on 2:36 instead of a period. There are probably others as well. Hopefully you can get them sorted out. Nevertheless, a very useful tool, and thanks for going to the trouble of creating it 🙂
Oh dear, threefold31, there seems to be quite a few errors then. I will need to go through the entire text word by word on screen with the my personal copy of Liber Al vel Legis, Centennial Edition to be 100% sure. Then will issue the updated version via Play Store. Thats my evenings this week sorted! 🙂
PS Thanks Chris!
I respect the effort to have a "perfect copy" of Liber 220. The problem is that errors can be promulgated,
and readers in the future will not know what is correct for "typos" and "editorial corrections". That is why
Liber 31, the manuscript, should be the only final authority. There we can see what changes have been
The app has been updated. Checked off against these and other text issues that were made aware to me.
Also updated the RSS feed to include the Orders main webpage rather than Twitter, which no longer supports RSS feeds.
It has been uploaded and should populate the Google Play Store in a couple of hours.
Brief message just to confirm that I have updated the app for android. It now has all text corrections previously mentioned, links to the original manuscripts, updated social media icons and a new donations page.
If you use or like the app, we would be extremely grateful for any donations, no matter how small.
The Irish Order of Thelema are a not-for-profit organisation.

I know nothing about the Irish Order of Thelema but I look forward to seeing the effect that its initials are going to have.
The Orders name is never abbreviated on any order documents or correspondence. So do not see an issue.
