י׳ בסיון ה׳תש״ע (May 23, 2010)
Jewish Cal is the most comprehensive Jewish and Hebrew calendar ever produced. Here are just some of the features included:
Holidays & events
Events: See Jewish & Israeli events and holidays in a Secular (Gregorian), Jewish or Hebrew calendar view. Includes the Sefiras Ha’omer count.
You can even add your own events such as a Yahrzeit, birthday or anniversary, all with detailed customization options.
Siddur, minyan finder & compass
A built in siddur helps you daven/pray anytime, anywhere. Auto-Scroll technology makes use of the iPhone’s accelerometer to browse through a prayer without having to lose concentration.
Jewish Cal keep things clean and simple by displaying only the appropriate prayers at the requested time of day (based the Halachic times, or Zmanim). For example, in the nighttime hours only Ma’ariv and Bedtime Shema are promoted.
There is also an integrated Minyan Finder with the most complete minyan database available, powered by our friends at GoDaven.com
Note: Currently Siddur texts are only available for Nusach Ashkenaz. English translations are also very limited at this time. We will be adding more siddur content and will be updated upon application launch.
Just like with other parts of the app, Jewish Cal simplifies Torah content also, by only displaying the relevant Jewish study material for the specific day requested.
All Talmud, Mishna and Torah/Chumash content include a comprehensive English translation.
Jewish Cal syncs to Google Calendar and therefore to Outlook or iCal. All you need is a Google account to stay in sync.
