Ultimate Zmanim for iOS has that feature. With Zmanim Alarms, Ultimate Zmanim can remind you of important zmanim throughout the day. Shema, Tefila, and weekly candle lighting are all covered. (To forewarn the question, on Android, Halachic Times is an equivalent).

שרשי מנהג אשכנז by R' Rav Binyomin Shlomo Hamburger (4 vols) is a popular set on the 'Yekkishe' Minhag. While it is out of print, some stores still sell it, and a new edition is being prepared. Find out more and see sample pages at their website.

Rav Moshe Eisemann wrote a book about Dovid HaMelech called "Music Made in Heaven" - the subtitle of the book is "some thoughts on Dovid Hamelech and Sefer Tehillim." He does not go systematically through Tehillim, but he uses Tehillim as a means of analyzing events in Dovid Hamelech's life. I think it could largely satisfy what you are looking for. It's ...

If you're interested in buying meforshim individually (in which case they will come with many more editorial and elucidation notes), here's a few: Artscroll Rashi Artscroll Ramban Artscroll Seforno Artscroll Baal HaTurim Menucha Publishers Kli Yakar on Bereishis and Shemos Urim Ohr HaChaim I didn't shop around for which websites would be the cheapest, ...

JPS is publishing an English edition. I asked about its contents here; it's a condensed version, but at one volume per book of torah it covers a lot more ground than a one-volume chumash. I'm very happy with the volume I've used and plan to add the rest to my library. Sh'mot, Vayikra, and B'midbar have been released; D'varim is due in April 2015, and I ...

Judaica Press publishes a set of Mikraos Gedolos with a digest of the commentaries in English.

Daat and tsel are both religious websites - I don't know if you count them as "publishers". Maccabees I http://www.daat.ac.il/daat/hasfarim/hashmonaim-a-2.htm http://www.tsel.org/torah/macab/ Maccabees II - http://www.daat.ac.il/daat/hasfarim/hashmonaim-b-2.htm They're all based on "Ketuvim Achronim" by Yitzchak Frankel. I'm having a hard time ...

As Noach mi Frankfurt said in a comment, there are four English translations: Soncino, Neusner, Artscroll, and Koren/Steinsaltz. I've worked with three of them (I don't know Neusner), and for a beginner I recommend the last, accompanied by a study partner or, at the very least, an introduction to talmud. None of these translations are particularly aimed ...

First of all, you might want to be a bit more specific. "The Balkans" comprises a large land mass and includes half a dozen different countries - some of which, like Greece, have a great deal of literature written about them. If it is only material of a very general nature that you are looking for, I would start with the following article, and then follow up ...

Really, it should be Danny Schoemann giving this answer, but i'll do him a favor and recommend his Halocho a Day blog. It has English language, intermediate level halachot, and can be quite informative. In fact, i'm adding it to my reading list right now. :)

The Zilberman Cheder in the Old City of Yerushalayim printed a seperate volume for each Neviim and Kesuvim without any trop or nekudos.

The best and most authentic version of MT is the one put out by Mifal Mishne Torah. They rely heavily on the Kapach manuscripts (which avoided the problem of Christian censors by being in Yemen), as well as several other manuscripts, at least one of which was signed by the Rambam's own hand. I had the opportunity to talk to one of the project leaders and he ...

As far as parsha podcasts go, I highly recommend the Pardes Podcast, produced by the eponymous institute. It is weekly updated with a good d'var torah from varying rabbis at the institute, and generally these tend to be good, serious looks at the Torah, pretty well informed by traditional rabbinic sources.

The Koren Tanach (a.ka.a the Jerusalem bible with its English translation) has both divisions; the original one on the outside margin of the page, and the popular one on the inside.

Take a look here for the text and a concise and clear commentary with PDFs too. (They don't seem to have all the דרשות though.)

Try Wikisource - he.wikisource.org - צוואת רבי יהודה החסיד. Can't vouch for its completeness, but it seems to be there. Hat tip: Google.

With the issue mainly being in the Chumash (The Five Books of Moses), the Lev Tahor community's publishing house, Hotzaas Daas, has recently published a Hebrew-only Chumash using a revised numbering system without any problematic divisions.

Someone started uploading some of them to Sefaria which you can see here. (Full disclosure: I work for Sefaria). However I'm not actually sure how complete it is. If you let me know where the gaps are, I can (bli neder) assign someone to finish it.

Long ago, before Artscroll ruled the earth, there was a siddur called the Birnbaum Siddur used in orthodox circles. It contains the book (or books) of Macabees.

The Birnbaum siddur comes with tefillot for practically the whole year. As it is out of print, I am unsure about finding a pocket-sized copy, although I have one at home so I know they exist. The only things I can think of which would need a separate volume are: Selichot (particularly for Yom Kippur) L'David Mizmor for Maariv (Rosh Hashannah and Yom ...
