This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
PocketTorah Trope is an application that teaches you the proper cantillation for reading the Torah, Haftarah & Megillot at any time of the year.
This project is made possible thanks to the generous support of the Jewish New Media Innovation Fund
I was excited to find this app, but after using it for a while I find it more confusing than helpful. There are a number of trope phrases that are sung, but with no real cumulative build up of phrases in increasing complexity. Then, when you go to the PocketTorah app from the same company, it seems like the Torah is sung in a completely different way than the way it was taught in the PocketTrope app, with no explanation whatsoever as to why the two are so different. A real exercise in confusion and really bad pedagogy!
Just used this for polishing me eicha trope. Very useful in the ability to search and find specifc notes.
Looking forward to using it again for the holidays.
Excellent tool; please update app!
I use this app regularly to review trope cantilation and teach my kids. But my iPhone 7 says the app needs to be updated because it is incompatible with newer phones. Please update, so I can keep using this wonderful app!
