A new version, version 4.2.3, of the iPhone Siddur is now available for download. The main change in this version is that we added push notifications to alert you of important and relevant information to this iPhone Siddur...

Hire Me iPhone App

DECEMBER 8, 2009

There are enough quiz apps for the iPhone to keep you busy for a lifetime. Well, we at RustyBrick are always trying to think out of the box.  That is exactly what we did when the time came to hire another web developer and another mobile app developer...

Apple's iPhone Tech Talk - '09

DECEMBER 1, 2009

The bus dropped me right outside the Marriot Marquis, the home of the 2009 iPhone Tech Talk.  Today should be interesting.  For me, these tech talks tend to be 20% learning new stuff, 40% working during listening, 10% getting answers for pressing questions and 30% meeting new people...

OCTOBER 15, 2009

iPhone Siddur in Native Hebrew

OCTOBER 15, 2009

As some of you know, we localized Shabbat Shalom in Hebrew about a month ago. It worked out well, so with the anticipation of the iPhone being officially supported in Israel, sometime in the near future, we decided to make our iPhone Siddur natively support Hebrew.

The process is now done and version...

OCTOBER 15, 2009

I was happy to see my first shareware app, MyZip, show up on a serialz list only weeks after release. It showed that my app was worth stealing. What I was not prepared for what the immediate impact it had on business. Literally the money stopped coming in...

Opt Out of Siddur Map

OCTOBER 8, 2009

There is a fun feature in the iPhone Siddur that shows some of the people who are using the Siddur at the time you are using it. This is a feature we released in our social update back in December 2008. You can see it yourself by going to the Siddur, clicking on "More" and then clicking on "Map...
