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.

Ratings and Reviews
Excellent app for practicing reading
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
Nice Tikun; price is high for what you get
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.
Developer Response ,
The app works on iPad and has a double click gesture to quickly switch between vowel modes. Please send a support email so we can work out your issues firstname.lastname@example.org
Functional and elegant
A wonderful learning tool, whether seeing Torah- and print-text side by side (in landscape) or instant switching (in portrait) is a huge help, as is the ability to hear as well as record. I had an almost other-worldly positive experience with support that for the sake of Rusty Brick employees I hope was not typical. I had a problem with a parshah download, and sent an e-mail about it at 10:15 on a Sunday night. I had initial reply and promise to address it, literally within two minutes. By noon of the following day, the problem had been confirmed, follow-up was made with the Baal Koreh, and the repaired version was uploaded to the Apple Store. This result from a support call could mean either that they are unbelievably responsive or hardly ever get calls and can thus drop everything to deal with the random complaint. Either way, it's great for the consumer. A suggestion for a future update - provide controls for fast-forward and back and for partial repetition within an Aliyah, rather than having to play the whole thing. That would be a real help to us novices who move slowly through the text and need a lot of repetition.
