Smart Menorah turns your device into a digital Menorah, taking all the guesswork out of Chanukah and letting you spend time focusing on what matters most; latkes and gelt! Smart Menorah is designed for you to light the candles with a simple swipe up on the display, automatically setting the right candles in the right place and lighting them in the right order for proper observance.

Features include:
- Light the candles with a simple swipe up once it's time for sundown.
- Chanukah prayers included with English translation to read along each night.
- Tap to change the background, swipe left or right to change the Menorah and candles.
- Countdown to Chanukah clock showing how long remains until it's time to light tonight's candles.
- Uses your location to download the most accurate sunset times in your area so you're able to light the candles as soon as it's time.
- Designed with Chanukah dates and sundown times until 2021.
- Receive a notification when it's time to light the Menorah each night.
- Complies with tradition including 30-minute timer once the candles have been lit and lighting of candles before sundown if observing Shabbat.
- Most importantly, no more Grandmas worried about you burning the house down when you leave the candles lit.

Happy Hanukkah

I’m trying to start the App and it opens and immediately closes/crashes. Unless this is the way the app works since Hanukkah hasn’t officially started, but that is a bad execution if that’s the case. Please advise or refund my purchase. Thanks!

UPDATE: The developer was extremely prompt in replying to my review and contacted me immediately via email. They troubleshooted my concerns and identified the problem and promptly submitted a fix to Apple, which updated the App the next day. The App has been fixed (well before the Menorah lighting) and is working beautifully. Thanks so much for ALL of your hard work and professionalism!

HIGHLY RECOMMEND... Happy Hanukkah🎄

Happy Hanukkah!

I love this app! I have it for Apple TV too! I appreciate the photo real aesthetic and not a cheese ball cartoon menorah. Hope to see more designs for next year! I have iPhone 10 and it works perfectly. Make sure your time zone is correct that’s how it determines when to light the candles. It would be nice to have the prayers in English but doesn’t everyone say them in Hebrew?

This is a perfect way to be able to light the Hanukkah candles while on a trip, in a hotel, or dorm room where you don’t want to light a match. Easy to take with you anywhere! Love the different backgrounds and the selection of Menorahs! Thanks for this new Hanukkah gift!
