I just upgraded the siddur iPhone app and now it won't open.  I have the original iPod touch.  Is there any way I could downgrade?  This was the siddur I use daily.

I am sorry to be a nudge but it is quite cheap to require separate purchase of the iPad version of an application! Lots of apps went into iPad and none asked to pay again... :(

Hello, I just purchase this app and am very happy with it. You guys did a great job in incorporating so many wonderful things! I was wondering,Is there any way to add the Parshas Hamon and other tefilot for Parnasa?

If you need it at any time, it is in our tefilla pack.

I just started saying Kaddish for my father. It would be nice if the Kaddish D' Yehe Shelama and Kaddish D'Rabbanan were more easily accessible especially since these kaddishes are said at times other than prayer times. Plus, it would also be nice if they had a good transliteration. I'd also like to request two other changes. One is to have a separate silent Amidah from the repetition since things like the Kiddusha aren't said during the silent Amidah. On the fast of Tevet, I got confused by the two different places Anenu is said between the silent Amidah and the repetition. It would make using the Siddur easier. Along the same lines, some of the "meditation" text takes up several lines on my iPhone, For example, in the third paragraph of the Shema. Can this be made collapsible? I really love the Siddur application. It makes davening much easier since I don't have to flip between various books or pages when special sections like the Hallel are said.

posted by Groovin' R'uvane on: May 13, 2013 07:41pm

Just wanted to alert you that the last few Hebrew paragraphs in Tefillas HaDerech are not translated into English. As a result, when one scrolls down, the English is not aligned with the Hebrew. (When one is reading, "Blessed are You, HASHEM, Hearer of prayer" the Hebrew is on, "Yismah HASHEM panav alechah v'yasei l'chah shalom"). Also, I came across an alternate version of this prayer for plane travel at some point - is it possible to include that in the app? Thanks for this wonderful resource!

posted by shmuel on: May 23, 2013 07:43pm

I use this app a lot and am very happy with it. However, the Chabad siddur (kenot version) is missing the Havdalah prayer (a special prayer added to the fourth blessing of the Amidah in Maariv on Sat evening or after holidays/hol hamoed). I think other siddurim include the Havdalah when appropriate, so this issue is probably specific to the Chabad version.

posted by Sam Adler on: Sep 28, 2012 07:27pm

Would be great to have the ability to page down. Ideally a swipe right or left, or tap once, or use the volume keys to page down as you're davening. I don't use the app that often to daven, but when i do, i always tried to remember to write you to ask about this... :) i finaly remembered. Would be an awesome feature.

You will never upgrade your device or lose it?

posted by Yirmiyahu on: Nov 1, 2013 02:44pm

I just updated my device. Apple's backup is the normal way of saving all of the settings that matter to me. I don't use the location services. People, in general, are reluctant to register for things. It would really be appreciated if there was a way to skip this screen permanently.

In settings on top, "Prompt for Registration" Turn it off. Keep in mind that your data will not be transferable to your other devices and will not be backed up. This is a service for the users, not a spam tactic.

posted by Yirmiyahu on: Nov 1, 2013 03:09pm

Found it. Thanks that's exactly what I was looking for. Should have hunted a little longer before contacting you but thanks for the quick response. I realize it's not spam, but what data are you referring to? If it's settings for the app, why wouldn't they be saved with the standard Apple backup which is used when installing your apps on a new device? And if it's your in-app purchases, why wouldn't you just use a standard 'restore purchases' feature?

Have you experienced any issues on Rosh Chodesh? Because some of these items are time based and others are date based. I haven't seen any issues. Changing the date on the phone can work for testing, but the time would need to be changed too and the tefilla would need to be refreshed.
