Praising God? There’s An App For That

I don’t have an iPhone, so I don’t find myself downloading tons of apps.

However, I do have an iPod touch, and I’ve just located the next app on my list: iBirkat has the text of Birkat Hamazon, the grace after meals. It’s a very simple app, but lets you choose what nusach you’d like, and a nice scroll view, as opposed to static pages. If you have an iPhone, iPod, or iPad, the iBirkat is a great addition to your Jewish apps. It allows you to pull up the text of birkat hamazon with no hassle. And let’s face it, you’re more likely to be carrying your iPhone than you are a siddur or bentching card.

Download iBirkat in the app store, and find out more about it here.
