What images come to your mind when you think of Hanukkah? The menorah, the dreidel, your grandmother’s latkes (potato pancakes)? Appsfire would like to throw another one into the mix: your iPhone.
There are lots of great ways to celebrate Hanukkah with iPhone apps, beginning with the iOS versions of the dreidel and menorah. Light a (virtual) candle each night with iMenorah. Get your kids excited to play dreidel with Ain’t Bubbies Dreidel, where you can actually spin the dreidel by spinning your iPhone. Cool. No Jewish holiday is complete without the food, and for Hanukkah that means two things: potato latkes and sufganiya (a variety of doughnut that’s popular in Israel this time of year). So check out Jewish Cooking and get started. To whet your appetite, you might want to take a spin at this addictive game: Catch the Sufganiya. Last but not least, don’t forget your friends and family on this holiday. Send a Hanukkah card with Happy Hanukkah or, for your friends with a sense of humor, the always handy Someecards app. So be sure to check out the App Mix, and have a Happy Hanukkah everyone!
