  • Great idea! Although Very expensive and doesn't always work

    Thank you for undertaking this project, it is very convenient. I am able to learn anywhere and can jump from book to book to look up anything I need so I don't have to carry all books with me. I get too many errors, just installed it from scratch and when I start the app I get an error unable to configure. Please fix the bugs Thank you again!
  • V4.0.4.1 scrolling very hard to use

    The change in scrolling in the latest release makes the iPad version very hard to use. Previously, the screen showed two columns, with text flow from one to the other, then the screen scrolled right/left. Now the screen shows a window on a fraction of two long columns and you scroll vertically. - the text on the screen at any one time shows two columns that are unrelated to each other. I can't understand how this is useful at all, just a guaranteed loss of screen real estate. - at the bottom of the page you have to page all the way up just to follow the text, meanwhile, the Rav is 3 lines further on by the time you get there. One column would be fine. What you had before was useable Two columns with text flow between them and a vertical scroll would also work.
  • Wow!

  • Has potential, but it is a terrible app!

    It loads very, very slowly. Switching between sections of the siddur is very, very slow. It used to have text fonts you could scale to your eyesight, but when Apple upgraded the iOS months ago it stopped working. ArtScroll said it was Apple's fault and months later still has nit fixed it. Customer service ignores complaints. Do not buy ArtScroll anything! Time to take a stand!
  • Great tool but please update!!

    I love this app but it definitely needs to be kept up-to-date and more optimized. App can use a lot of work, but can be a great resource! Also the prices of everything gets ridiculously expensive really quickly. Should be a system where if you have the actual book there is a code or reduced price for the digital version. I hope developers read this and get more funding to make this app 5 stars!!
  • Great Siddur!

    The Wasserman Siddur has combined the Artscroll Siddur's familiarity and accepted text and translation with Rusty Brick's amazing internet innovations for all manner of conveniences that assist one's praying. The only possible complaint could be that it has too much! But it does not feel cumbersome because of the ease of control to glide from one prayer section to the next and to split a page for side-by-side interlocked Hebrew and English texts. If the Anshei K'nessess Hagadol (compilers of our prayers) could see this fantastic siddur, they would kvell!
  • Crashes while you watch your money go down the drain

    Multivolume load didn't work on my iPad. Had to download each of the 73 Talmud volumes one at a time which took hours. Now it crashes all the time. Give it a pass until they get the bugs out. Otherwise it's really pretty good but a waste of money right now.
  • The standard in Talmud and Siddur English translation, however the app needs work.

    I use this app on a daily basis for the Siddur and Talmud. The Talmud is expensive but essential. Much credit to ArtScroll for publishing their electronic version of the Talmud, I just hope they continue to develop this application to make it perform much better!.... And publish more of their books!! Also note this app does not allow you to copy and paste text, say for example you wanted to paste an excerpt into a word processor or email. Also the app is extremely slow and unstable in performance on an iPhone 6 so beware of running on anything less…
  • Packed with features, but cumbersome

    Artscroll puts out a great product in book form. I own many siddurim, chumashim, and in print he maras, and I am more than happy with these. I write this review as a fan of Artscroll. This app feels like an "everything but the kitchen sink approach. Each Sefer has too many options with a complex interface, making using it a chore. The interface should hide in the background, but it feels like an ever-present irritation. This is most noticeable in the new siddur. With the siddur, there are several delays. First you have to open the Artscroll app, then you have to go to the library to open up the siddur. Then there is an unnecessary lag when changing between sections of davening. You have to wait for Phuket decimal to load after finishing karbonnos. These issues don't occur with the rusty brick siddur which feels more streamlined. If only rusty brick could use the same font and layout as Artscroll. The print is still beautiful. I would love to see the Artscroll siddur as a separate app altogether from the Talmud app. Iwould also like to see the full Artscroll siddur I the app. It is advertised as a full siddur but only contains the weekday davening. There is value in having the Shannon's prayers available as a reference. It would be nice to practice chazzanus from my iPad on the weekdays. There has got to be a ay to shut the app down on Shabbos and Yom Tov, anyway. In any case, I am still a subscriber to the Artscroll Talmud app, because I know these problems will be fixed with time. The Artscroll Talmud itself is still a wonderful product.
