iOS Siddur Now iPhone 5 & iOS 6 Ready
The iPhone 5 is out and so it iOS 6, last week we submitted a new version of the iPhone Siddur to Apple to support both the iPhone 5 and iOS 6. We dubbed this version 5.1 and is available for download as of September 24th (9pm EDT).
The main differences include support of the iPhone 5's 4 inch tall screen. We use all of the screen real estate to make sure you can see as much text as possible. We also added retina graphics to 99% of the screens, so the app's icons and images should look much sharper. The maps has changed from Google Maps to iOS Apple Maps. We also added some iOS 6 specific optimizations.
Here is a screen shot comparing iPhone 4 size to iPhone 5 and the sharpness of the retina icons:
Here is a new look at the maps:
