Quality of Voice
We love the program, but the voice is not great. The speaker sounds like a nice guy, but having both a man and women Cantor's voice would be great. I bet you could get the URJ to provide cantors as voices for the program.
Not pedagogically sound
It's pretty and looks nice, but this app is barely better than a cassette tape recording of the prayers and facilitates rote memorization over any meaningful understanding or ability to decode or actually read the text.
