Video review of Hebrew Bible app

Rabbi Ari Sytner has created a great presentation titled ”Judaism In The 21st Century: How The iPhone Is Changing The Way We Observe The Torah“. In it, he reviews a lot of the currently-available iPhone/iPad apps that have Jewish content, including my Hebrew Bible app. The youtube movie of his presentation is broken down into 3 parts (Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3). There is also a nice summary (with links to the apps referenced in the presentation on "The Jewish iPhone Magazine" site. The section of the presentation where Rabbi Ari Sytner discusses my Hebrew Bible app is at the beginning of Part 2 (the first 3.5 minutes of the clip) in which he looks at the Hebrew/English Tanakh version, the verses lookup, and the maps functionality in the app.
