Absolute Best in Class Interactive Tikkun
This is an exceptional program. It is incredibly clear, precise and flexible. It provides visual and audio in multiple formats and perspectives. It can display: the Stam text seen in Torah; the classic masoritic text with trope and nikkud; and the english translation. The classic text is thoughtfully designed to assist your pronunciation in multiple ways, clearly identifying for example, which type of kamatz or shva is required, but alsomuch more. If you enjoy color blocking the trope phrases or signs as a memory aide, you can do that too. You can also get interactive audio in the SATB voice of your choice - and choose among multiple melodies (Binder, Jacobson, Moroccan, Yerushalmi, Chabad...). You can replay the audio by word, group, pasuk, or the entire Aliyah. If you do not recognize a trope or are unsure, there is an entire section that demonstrates the trope melodies, and provides multiple interactive exercises using phrases from the text.
There is a lifetime of learning here - both for adult leyners and for aspiring bnei mitzvah. Despite the relatively high cost for an APP I recommend it enthusiastically & unreservedly. The only thing better is their desktop product - and that is several times the price.
Note for Context: prior to this I have never given 5 stars to any APP - and expect it will be a long time until I do so again.
I have the computer version. I do wish that you could sync customizations between app and desktop. I *care* about which color
Only 4 stars because it crashes continually as soon as I've switched between the trope page and the custom text page a couple of time. But, since there isn't a way to see and hear the trope names sung from the text page, I keep my phone on the trip page and the Torah text on my iPad. That works extremely well.
I was initially put off ...
With the idea of synthesized voices, but a friend recommended it to me and I bought it. I'm not sorry. My bar mitzvah was in 1960, and I recall the pain of learning the Torah and haftarah even though I no longer remember the parasha. This past summer I read a haftarah for the first time since 1960, preparing with trope trainer, and it was, in comparison, as easy as a knife through butter. I'm working on my second haftarah with trop trainer now (lech Le ha). I'm sold!
