Free Awesome Torah and Haftorah Chanting Apps from PocketTorah


Barak forwarded this from Eytan Kurshan (first posted on 4/17/12)...
Hi everyone,

I wanted to let you know that I was involved in the creation of an app which has just launched! It is called PocketTorah and is available here
The app contains a recording of every aliyah in the Torah as well as all Haftorot. If you'd like to hear me, I recorded the parshiyot from Tazria to Acharei-Mot.

There is also a separate module containing recordings of just the trope of Torah, Haftorah, and Megilah....
Congrats to Rabbi Charlie Schwartz and Russel Neiss for putting this all together.

We downloaded and reviewed the apps. They are awesome.

"PocketTorah is an application that  will provide the user the ability to learn the weekly Torah and Haftarah portion anywhere, at any time, on any mobile device or computer for free."

Denominational Alert! These two apps obviously were designed for Conservative, Reform and Reconstructionist Jews. There are women Torah readers recorded on the apps, so officially they are not suitable for Orthodox users.

For what it's worth, there are some Orthodox authorities who permit women to teach people how to leyn, just not to do so themselves in public.

Anonymous quoting anonymous is not really that helpful here. If you want to identify your authorities and yourself that will be welcome.
