can't understand english translation

Joemiz18 Ny

the actual gemara is nice to have on your phone and english is ok for some translation but no way you can read english translation in order to get real understanding from it alone and daf yomi shiur on daf is probably not the type you can hear for an hour staight

I love this app

Ab07030

I've never had access to the Talmud before. This app shows how important the Talmud is to understanding Judaism and Jewish history. I love this app.

Update: I submitted this review a few months ago but just want to update it to say how much I love this app.

I'm sure it has programming and translation issues, but it's the only cheap, practical way that I know if for a secular, non-Aramaic speaking layperson to read the Talmud on the subway. Just start on page 1 and read it as if it were spy transcripts of ancient people's conversations. There's a lot of very technical stuff about prayers in the beginning, but then you get stuff about ghosts and how ancient people in Iraq ate their meals, and how ancient people avoided bad breath. This is, basically, a Usenet archive for King Arthur's contemporaries. Someone needs to come up with a good brachoh to give thanks for the availability of this app.

Good but could use work

101010011100100

This is an amazing app, yes, but could use some tweaks. First, it is a bit buggy on my iPhone 4-it doesn't always register taps and crashes too. Second, it's great to be able to search by Hebrew word, but when going into English mode it's very easy to lose one's place. Would be great if the Hebrew and English had some way of correlating to each other so you knew which line or verse you were on when switching. Otherwise it is good but reading Talmud on a phone presents opportunities for easier navigation.
