iPhone Apps for the Jews

As seen on Jewschool – thanks for the helpful and funny post!

Not sure which blessing to say over what foods? No need to live with the shame any more. Just download the new iBlessing application (above left) onto your iPhone and with the touch of a finger you’ll know exactly which bracha to utter over fish, meat, bread, fruit, etc. While you’re at it you might as well download the nifty Parve-O-Meter (above right): a timer app that calculates exactly how long you need to wait to eat dairy after you’ve eaten meat (or vice versa).

What’s next, the iSefirah app for those who lose track of the Omer? (I shouldn’t laugh – I’m sure the Apple folks are working on it as we speak…)

If you’ve got iTunes, you can find the iBlessing and Parve-O-Meter here. If you’re blessing-challenged and don’t own an iPhone, don’t fear: check out the Say-a-Blessing Keychain (now offered with the handy LED flashlight feature!)

  1. iMenorah: A menorah lighting application for the Apple iPhone and iPod Touch!

    By downloading iMenorah, you are also supporting San Francisco’s local Jewish Community. We will be donating a portion of the proceeds to a local San Francisco Jewish charity. Please stay tuned to our website – more details will be posted once we make the donation.

    The app is a lot of fun, and you’ll even catch Mike singing the blessings (bruchas) for each night of Chanukah – right from your iPhone or iPod Touch! You can light the candles with the touch of your finger. Take part in the century-old tradition of lighting the Hanukkah candles… now available at your fingertips. 🙂

    We thank you for your support, and for supporting San Francisco’s Jewish community.

    For more details and a link to the download on iTunes, please see the webpage here:

    iParashah is the ultimate source that brings to your iPhone/iPod Touch all you need to know about each week’s Torah portion, as well as a Gregorian to Hebrew date converter. All is beautifully presented with an easy to use interface.
