Jewish Press: RustyBrick's Siddur Is The One App You Must Have

Published March 23, 2012

GenieYoni Glatt from the Jewish Press said in an article published yesterday in the magazine that the RustyBrick iPhone Siddur is the must have app have for any Jew with an iPhone. His words, "I can say that if I could only have one Jewish app on my iPhone the Siddur would be it."

I am biased but it is definitely the most used non-Apple App I used on my iPhone. I use email and Safari maybe a little more than I use our own Siddur. But I run into people all over the world who tell me they live by the iPhone Siddur. It is a true honor to be able to contribute our portion to the Jewish community with this Siddur.

Yoni wrote:

I remember that before getting an iPod touch (and later an iPhone), I would carry a tiny siddur in my wallet. It certainly added unwanted bulk, awkwardly making my wallet protrude from my pocket. I immediately downloaded a free app with tefillah on it, but then came across the Siddur app – and became sincerely awed. It had full prayer services in Ashkenaz, Sephard, and nusach Ari, could find a shul or minyan near your current location, and had a full luach with daily z’manim. For these reasons alone, I felt (and still feel) that it’s worth the $9.99 price tag. And that was only the early version of the app. Two weeks ago RustyBrick updated the Siddur app to version 5.0.

The Jewish Week a few weeks ago listed seven of our apps as the top 30 Jewish apps in the Apple iTunes App Store. Now to see the Jewish Press say that if they were only allowed on app on their device, it would be our Siddur App, that is tremendously meangingful for us.

We are really excited for the future and working with Artscroll, with endless rich content, the possibilities are endless. Hold on - exciting things to come.
