We have uploaded the first release of the iPhone Siddur to the iTunes Connect system. As you can see in the screen shot below, Apple now needs to review it. When Apple approves it, it will then be available in the iTunes Store for download.

iPhone Siddur in Review of iTunes Connect

I told you it was coming, and now it is here. We were able to get most the weekday texts in, they do need some cleaning up. We have someone working to clean up all the texts over the weekend. We were able to get most prayer times, but we are still working on “Alos Hashachar” and “Tzais.” We cannot get Mizrach (which way is east) working until the rumored iPhone 2.1 software comes out, which is expected very soon. So we will work on that also.

We got the barebones up, including:

(A) Texts – Prayers

  • Shacharis, Mincha, Maariv and Brachos
  • Both Ashkenaz and Sfarad

(B) Times – Zmanim

  • Location Lookup for long/lat
  • Sunrise
  • Latest Shema
  • Latest Tefilla
  • Chatoz
  • Mincha Gedola
  • Mincha Ketana
  • Plag HaMincha
  • Sunset

We tested all the times in our local area, so we hope it works well elsewhere. If it doesn’t, I am sure we will hear about it. Here is the official iPhone Siddur page.

Very excited about this and can’t wait to show you more. Here are some screen captures:

    that is really exciting.
    What nusach is it?
    do you plan of adding other nuschois?

    Brilliant program. I cannot believe people can criticise the cost. A stupid game costs more. Installed it on a Monday and was amazed when it automatically came up with the correct Kri’at Ha’Torah and Shir shel Yom. A must for travelling whether on holiday or business, especially with minyan locator and alternative nusach. Works even without GPS version of iPhone.
