Perhaps the best Jewish iPhone app on the market finally comes to… Android.

iTalmud developed gives you three versions of  the entire Babylonian Talmud on your Android devices. You can use scrolling,  a complete, searchable translation with thousands of footnotes, references and insights, or download a page image from the Vilna Shas.  iTalmud features a text search for the entire Talmud.  iTalmud uses the device accelerometer to detect when the phone is moved to a horizontal position and adjusts the page layout accordingly.

The English translation, which is Soncino’s,  provides explanatory footnotes that you can access with a click,  and so does the Hebrew-Aramaic version.  You can  browse by Seder (Order), Masechta (Tractate), By Chapter and/or jump to any page (daf) in the entire Talmud in an instant. You can easily flip from one page to the next with a single touch.

Touch browse, pan and zoom through full, high-definition pages of the Talmud in both the original Tzuras Hadaf and in English or Hebrew text view modes. Original page formatting includes all the classic commentaries. The text view includes an option to view commentaries of  both Rashi & Tosfos in a secondary window. Integrated “Daf Yomi” calculator allows you to jump to the day’s “Daf” with a single touch.

You can also download and listen to a shiur on each daf given by Rabbi Dovid Grossman of  Los Angeles, a founder of the Yeshiva Gedola of Los Angeles.  Daf  Yomi lectures are integrated and free. You can listen to a English shiur on any daf and follow along inside with the text or image page view.

Due to the large size of the Talmud images and audio lectures, all pages are downloadable on demand and then stored locally your device for offline usage. You can download by daf  or by masechta. (Please note that at this stage about 5% of Daf images are still unavailable. We will attempt to ensure that new pages are available according to the “Daf Yomi” schedule.)

You can use the power of GPS to locate the nearest Daf Yomi shiur in your area and get shiur details and Google Maps directions to the event. There is an option to create bookmarks so that you can easily return to the page you were studying at a later time.
