My Go To App
I have been using this app for 2 years and love it. You can choose whether or not to include Israeli holidays as well as minor ones. I really like that you are able to export holidays to your personal calendar as well. There is an option to view holidays in a calendar view or list view which is convenient. Great app- worth every penny.
Being estranged from my Jewish ancestry, I never learned about Jewish customs and traditions as my parents did, instead only learning anything about my heritage from my Grandmother. This app (while not my only avenue of exploration of course) has been an immensely helpful tool for learning about certain holidays and fasts important to Jewish communities as I rediscover the culture of my forebears.
Doesn't tell you the Jewish day
This app shows a calendar on the left but will display information only for the Jewish holiday. So, if you want to know when the 18th of Adar is, for example, you have to look at Purim, then count forward. I wish it would tell you the actual DATE that when you tap a spot on the calendar. Instead, you never see anything other then the Jewish holiday for that month.
