My brother has ADHD and just bought himself a Kindle, so that it’ll be easier for him to focus on davening. Then he found out there are no siddur e-books. Is there a specific reason why? Am I allowed, halachaclly, to copy the text off some website and make it into a website?June 14, 2012 8:28 pm at 8:28 pm #880054zahavasdadParticipant

zsdad: How much did thee Droid Siddur App cosat (I assume it wasn’t free)? Is it available on Amazon Appstore (if so, what’s the name of it)?June 14, 2012 9:07 pm at 9:07 pm #880056zahavasdadParticipant

A friend of mine has three or four different siddurim on his kindle. Since you can convert practically any file under the sun to amazon’s .mobi format, there is no reason you can’t put any pdf siddur off of hebrewbooks.org on your brother’s kindle.June 15, 2012 4:06 pm at 4:06 pm #880058
ItcheSrulik – More info please? Can’t seem to figure out how to do it…June 17, 2012 4:43 am at 4:43 am #880059lesschumrasParticipant
Okim has an Android siddur that I did buy for $1.99. It has a clear easy on the format and has an option that I like. You can either display the entire siddur every day primly those tfillos needed. So, for example, yaale vyavo appeared on Rosh chodesh and on fast days Mincha has lainingJune 17, 2012 7:53 pm at 7:53 pm #880060
@lesschamras – and I can put this on a kindle?June 17, 2012 8:03 pm at 8:03 pm #880061147Participant
Having a Siddur on kindle circumvents the issue of entering a bathroom/restroom with the kindle in your pocket or brief case, and not being to leave it outside unattended.
BTW are the downloads for a kindle Siddur in Nusach Ashkenaz?June 17, 2012 9:01 pm at 9:01 pm #880062ohr chodeshMember
What’s better for a Kindle Fire? An android app Siddur or a Kindle ebook Siddur?June 18, 2012 4:32 pm at 4:32 pm #880063ItcheSrulikMember
bekitzur: ??????, all you have to do is this: (couldn’t resist 🙂 )
1) Search hebrewbooks.org for the siddur of your choice.
2) Download it
3) Copy to your kindle.
Kindles now have native pdf support so you don’t even have to convert it.
