It keeps autoscrolling to end of tractate but should not if you are coming from the introduction. Sefaria is free without the glitches, I paid over $600 for Babylonia then a 300 iPhone to read it on yet it’s buggy. Nevertheless, the ArtScroll version has helpers that make it better than Sefaria, so ArtScroll continues to be my preference.

This is the best siddur app I've used and I'm glad I "splurged" to buy it to replace my free ones, but it takes a long time to load every time I open it and the scrolling is very choppy, making a bit challenging to follow when I'm reading longer sections. Anything to speed it up would be appreciated (iPhone 6 user).

I like the app. I have difficulty controlling/scrolling through the Siddur moving the pages with my finger is "choppy". Thanx.

Please make this fact clear before one has to download the app!

This app is awesome!! It gives me the ability to learn even when I'm not in a place that I can find a Gemara . The recently added feature of color coding the Gemara breaking it up has increased my ability to learn on my own. Keep up the great work of helping people learn.

This is an outstanding app with excellent technical support. All the bug reports that I have sent have been answered in less than an hour, including one at 3 am on Sunday. It is a real pleasure to study the daf yomi with this app and the practicality of having over 200 pounds of gemarot in an iPad and iPhone is priceless. This app is, in reality, a community effort and only by contributing with the developers it will become a tool that will certainly increase Torah study worldwide. So, once you start using the app, send your suggestions and ideas to the developers. Having said that, after the last update on 10/13, the app in my iPhone shows the starting page when launched, but then quits.

Because it has been almost a year and a half since ArtScroll came out, it is very very tiring to hear "we are working on it" The app crashes several times a session. Yellow highlight disappears, needing to close app and reopen, sometimes several times. Claiming that you do not need internet once downloaded, many times, a window opens up, not letting you to continue, because, something related to internet is causing it not to open. An excellent tool for learning, but enough excuses. New update. when it crashes, it now crashes and shuts down the iPad itself. Also, when you advance the text, it stopped automatically advancing when you reach border. Great!!! Every update 2 steps backwards.

This is amazing. Could use some work on the navigation side but still - wow - please keep developing it.
Shimshon79's Review of Artscroll Digital LibraryReviewed on 11/27/18 12:37 PM
Artscroll puts out a great product in book form. I own many siddurim, chumashim, and in print he maras, and I am more than happy with these. I write this review as a fan of Artscroll. This app feels like an "everything but the kitchen sink approach. Each Sefer has too many options with a complex interface, making using it a chore. The interface should hide in the background, but it feels like an ever-present irritation. This is most noticeable in the new siddur. With the siddur, there are several delays. First you have to open the Artscroll app, then you have to go to the library to open up the siddur. Then there is an unnecessary lag when changing between sections of davening. You have to wait for Phuket decimal to load after finishing karbonnos. These issues don't occur with the rusty brick siddur which feels more streamlined. If only rusty brick could use the same font and layout as Artscroll. The print is still beautiful. I would love to see the Artscroll siddur as a separate app altogether from the Talmud app. Iwould also like to see the full Artscroll siddur I the app. It is advertised as a full siddur but only contains the weekday davening. There is value in having the Shannon's prayers available as a reference. It would be nice to practice chazzanus from my iPad on the weekdays. There has got to be a ay to shut the app down on Shabbos and Yom Tov, anyway. In any case, I am still a subscriber to the Artscroll Talmud app, because I know these problems will be fixed with time. The Artscroll Talmud itself is still a wonderful product.
