This Hanukkah iPad and iPhone app will show you how many Hanukkah candles to light tonight and for each day of the Jewish Holiday Chanukah (Hanukkah). It is fair to say the iOS application won’t be for everyone, but those of Product Reviews readers that love using the latest gadgets and need a little help can benefit from using the Menorah – Chanukah app.
It has a simple animation to show you which way to light, which is of course in agreement with Ashkenaz customs. You will also find the Chanukah prayers in English and Hebrew.
Even better, the Hanukkah app is free on both iPhone, iPad and enhanced further with prayers sung by Mo Kiss in a professional manner. While you don’t need to pay for this app, you shouldn’t think that is a signal of how good it is thanks to over 2,600 users rating it 4 out of 5 stars.
Main features include an indicator for the first night of Chanukah when it’s not currently Chanukah, Brachot and Traditional Songs in Audio and text along with a visual aid for how to light each night. The latest update took the app to v1.4 and improved the design, fixed some bugs like the correct start date and is now compatible with iOS 7.
If you are asking yourself how many Hanukkah candles do I light tonight and have an iOS device, then feel free to download this app on iTunes.
