The Shabbat application will allow you to quickly check the candle lighting times, havdalah times and parsha for the week in any location in the world. This comes in handy when you quickly want to know when Shabbos is or if you want to know if it is too late to call your in-laws in Israel. Just flip through the different cities and countries, to see what the local time is and what time they start or finish Shabbos.

Enjoy this free Jewish application by downloading it on iTunes for your iPhone or iPod Touch. The application requires an internet connection only when you use the search feature, to locate a location. Otherwise, it can run without an internet connection.

Hope you enjoy, and we at Rusty Brick will love to hear your feedback!


אפלקציה לשבת יאפשר לכם לבדוק במהירות את זמני כניסת ויציאת השבת, ואת פרשת השבוע לכל עיר בעולם. דבר זה יכול להיות לתועלת כאשר אתם רוצים לדעת במהירות מתי נכנס שבת בטיול – נסיעת עסקים הרחק מבתיכם. כאשר אתם לא יודעים אם מאוחר מדי להתקשר לומר שבת שלום להורים בחו"ל.
פשוט דפדפו הערים והמדינות השונות לדעת מה השעה ומתי נכנס שם שבת!

Thank you so much for this app! I love it. The user interface mimics the iPhone's native weather app, but it gives very useful information for the celebration of Shabbat. The app is free, too, which is a big plus. Most of the Jewish/Hebrew-related apps on the app store are paid apps. I only have one small complaint, and a few suggestions for possible updates. Complaint: the "Local Time" field doesn't refresh after the application loads. Again, very small complaint, as you can use the iPhone clock or any of the millions of other clocks in the world. :-) Still, this would probably be an easy fix, and should be part of any future update.


1. Give the actual chapter and verse numbers for the Parsha reading. It would also be cool if this were a link that would open up to the Parsha itself.
2. Give the Haftarah reading along with chapter and verse numbers. Likewise with a link to the reading.
3. Allow the user to cycle through to future Shabbat information. The "Next week ..." week line is good, but it would be awesome to have a full calendar of Shabbat information.

Again, beautiful user interface, and thank you so much for making it free! Keep up the good work. I look forward to any updates.

Useful utility for those who observe the Jewish custom


Downloaded out of curiosity because I've heard of this practice, but never took the time to learn a bit about it until now. I visited the developer's website, and also found some more information at Wikipedia. Fascinating.

Anyway, if you're a practicing Jew who so happen to enjoy using gadgets like the iPhone or iTouch, I think you'll probably enjoy using Shabbat Shalom. You'll find it quite helpful. Similar to the the default Weather application, it gives you a local (or non-local, for example, Jerusalem, Shanghai, or Sydney) "forecast" of Sukkot times for the current week - Candle lighting, Havdalah. It also gives you next week's Candle lighting time. For me, it was a useful educational tool, and, well, somewhat entertaining.

I think I have only one suggestion for the developer about the graphics. At first glance, I thought the image of the Chala bread the looked like a brain. Perhaps tweak the image a bit more to make it look more like a Chala bread.



I import times for a year at a time from hebcal into my calendar and sync, but I like the fact that you can quickly have access to times for different locations. Presentation is great. And the price can't be beat - thanks!
A few suggestions if you're looking to improve on an already very nice app:
- Why not use the GPS to allow adding your current location more easily?
- Also being able to see times for a specific date(s) beyond this/next week would definitely be great for planning ahead.
- I'll second the request for having the local time keep current (it's a little disconcerting).
- Lastly, haven't had an opportunity to see what it does for Chagim, but why not recast it from just Shabbat times to be able to handle candle lighting for Erev Chag as well? [This has been added since this was originally posted. Thanks!]
