Are there any good daf yomi apps? I saw the video for the artscroll app but it doesn't seem to be out yet. Any recommendations?

The Artscroll app is available here: itunes.apple.com/us/app/artscroll-digital-library/… –  Dave Aug 3 '12 at 18:42
    
Someone please tell Artscroll that there are a few of us with Android devices. –  Seth J Aug 3 '12 at 19:50
    
@SethJ I read an article that suggested that they planned to roll out the app to iPhone and Android in the near future. –  yoel Aug 3 '12 at 20:10
    
I heard the new Koren English Talmud is/did come out with an app starting this cycle. –  Double AA Aug 3 '12 at 20:12
    
The siyum's program guide "HaSiyum" had an ad for every different system with an analysis (on their own terms, though) of it. –  MosheY Aug 5 '12 at 14:15

The App includes many great features:

  1. The entire Talmud in clear fonts
  2. Talmud lessons to listen to and download, in Hebrew, English and Yiddish
  3. Articles, Leaflets,books and other helpful tools
  4. A location map for venues in which you can attend "Daf Hayomi" lectures
  5. A Calendar with enables the user to keep track of hies learning

I've been using Crowded Road's iTalmud. It had some major issues with download management and audio playback, but a recent update reduced these to minor issues, at least for me.

Could you please provide a link? –  Adam Mosheh Aug 3 '12 at 15:45

is it worth the $25? –  Seth J Aug 27 '12 at 21:44
    
@SethJ all things considered I think that's a fair price, but of course it feels very expensive in the scope of iOS apps. I think you would get a lot more mileage out of it if you have an iPad for it too. It's a little cramped on the iPhone. –  yoel Aug 28 '12 at 2:01
