Tikun Korim - תקון קוראים App Description

Now you can practice for your Bar Mitzvah with an iPhone & iPad app that helps you learn to read your Bar Mitzvah Parsha. The app is an interactive Tikun Korim. The Tikun works on both the iPhone and iPad and has many features to aid in learning your reading. The layout of the Tikun is specially designed to fit the iPad or iPhone, being about half the height of a normal Tikun. It works in both landscape and portrait mode; where landscape mode has the Torah view on the left and the Ta'amim (Cantorial notes) on the right, and portait mode shows only one view at a time with a quick toggle switch to flip between the two. There is a bookmark feature for quick access to the parsha you are studying and the ability to record and email that recording to your friends and Bar Mitzvah teacher. Also included is a Ta'amim Chart with audio by a professional Bar Mitzvah teacher, so you can learn how to lain on your own. Included is all of the Torah, Haftorahs and Megillat Esther, Shir Hashirim, Ruth, Eichah and Kohelet! The typesetter for this Tikun is by Divrei Emes. Audio (available as in app purchase) for Ashkenaz parshas were recorded by Ira Slotnick. Audio for the Sephardic parshiot were recorded by Rabbi Baruch Mishaan. Professional Baal Korim will appreciate the clarity of the text, Shvah Na and alternate opinion notation. Features: * Interactive Digital Tikun * Landscape / Portait Modes for both iPhone & iPad * Record Audio & Email Recordings * Bookmark Sections * Parsha Slider & Quick Finds * Ta'amim Chart with Professional Audio * Great Bar Mitzvah Teaching Aid * Clear & Crisp Text With Zoom Capability * Shvah Nah Notation * Alternate Opinion Notation * In app purchases for downloading Parsha Torah Reading Audio* Please provide us with feedback: tikun@rustybrick.com * To access audio for purchase, click on the Parsha menu and click the button with the $ on it.

  • Nice Tikun; price is high for what you get

    By Philip Elliot
    Nice clear layout. Even has the haftorahs in Tikun format. One size fit for all devices; layout in iPad Pro is exact same as iPhone. Would be better if additional text (up to the full amud) was shown on larger devices. No option to increase or decrease font size as in other free apps available in the market. Somewhat pricey for what you get.
  • Excellent app for practicing reading

    By Dave hok
    Love the app use it all the time .love how a double tap changes back and forth from Nekudot to not . I just wish it was a little cheaper to purchase a Parashah $5 per Parashah plus I already payed $20 just to buy the app is a lot of money
  • Game changer

    By TAL Junkie
    Nothing beats studying from my Tikkun but since I travel a lot this app is far superior than carrying it with me. It is easy to use. Cost is the only downside, but for me it is more than with it.
  • Thank you

    By Font Man
    Please include readings for the holidays and font options
  • Good aid in leining

    By Shaishaibones
    The price, if you intend to learn multiple parashot, is not cheap.
  • הקלטה מוכנה על כל פרשה עולה כסף,בבקשה אל תטעו כמוני,לא שווה $20

    By Yaphe
    אחרי העידכון האחרון המסך קופץ ומהבהב על האייפון 6s . הקלטה מוכנה על כל פרשה עולה כסף,בבקשה אל תטעו כמוני,לא שווה את המחיר בבקשה תדעו אם אתם רוצים פרשה עם הקלטה מוכנה אתם צריכים להוסיף $5 על כל פרשה, ממש גניבה. There is no recorded parsha, Please know if you want recorded parsha you will have to pay Five $ for each parsha , please be aware
  • Excellent

    By Tyw613
    Great GUI, has all the features a Baal Koreh needs. Good job! 3/2016: Good upgrade, added Kamatz Katan, and double tap to change modes. Thanks for listening!
  • Where are the other Megillot?

    By DO530
    Please add Shir HaShirim, Ruth, Eichah, and Kohelet to this app. Then it would be perfect.
  • Excellent tikun app

    By Gil Kepecs
    I have been using this app for over a year. The text is clear even on a small iPhone 5 screen, though better on the iPad. The screens present half of a standard tikun column in the most common Torah layout. Portrait mode shows only the Torah or annotated image, while landscape gives you both, fine on the iPad though too small to use on the iPhone. The app shows the "shvah nah" and "kamatz kattan". My only gripe is that switching between Torah text and annotated text in portrait mode takes 2 taps in exactly the right place-1 to show the menu, the second to switch images. I wish there were a single tap, as the app has for bookmarks. With that said, I use this all the time.
  • Serves my needs perfectly

    By earlymusicfan
    I was initially hesitant to buy a second Tikkun program for my iPad because it was so expensive. But the other one didn't really look like the scroll. I bought this yesterday to work on Ekev. I am really pleased with it. It looks reasonable like the scroll and if I turn my iPad vertically I can see just one version and switch back and forth with the trop and nekudot. I don't need the audio files. I like that you can make it bigger if you need to. My actual Tikkun is very heavy and hard for me to hold to practice with. This is so much easier. Especially with the apparent demise of the Tikkun on the ScrollScraper site (which also printed the nekudot often unclearly), I needed something I could have with me. So I recommend it. Yasher koach! If there were a way to make it change the line endings randomly when you open it each time (so you don't get too dependent on the layout) it would be perfect, but that is a lot to ask.
