  1. I want to report a bug in Calj. I just entered a Yarzeit in “My Events” that
    occurs in Adar. When I checked the date in Calj, it is displaying the date
    in Adar ll for next year. The date of death was not in a leap year, so the
    Yarzeit is observed in Adar l.

    1. Dear Barbara,

      There are two opinions. The Ashkenazim retain Adar 1, and the Sefaradim observe the hazcara in Adar 2.

      To be complete, the App should give you the option to choose.
      I will hopefully add the feature in a future release אי׳ה

      For the time being you can force the app to use Adar l by entering the date for 5774 (or any other leap year) instead of the year of death.

    Thank you for great and useful job.
    Unfortunately, there is a bug.
    I exported events to my Google calendar.. Unfortunately the reminder (for Sukkot) came at common, not Jewish time, that is at night, but not by sunset.
    Please fix, otherwise the feature does not make sense, as the reminder comes later when the event had occured already.

    1. Dear Henry,
      Thank you for your message, and for using my app.
      I would not define as bug the behaviour that you describe, because it actually works as I expected to — but I understand what you mean.

      The Calendar events are basically supposed to be a quick way to consult your calendar ahead of time in order to avoid fixing a meeting (or a vacation etc.) at an inappropriate date. They are not really meant to fire Zman-related reminders (such as candle times etc.).
      The feature that will help you better, in this particular matter, is for me to extend the current “Rosh Chodesh / Shabbat / Yahrzeit Reminders” (the iOS notifications) to Yamim Tovim as well.

      I will take care of it hopefully in a future release, אי”ה.

      If you think that my understanding is wrong, please feel free to get back to me by email.

  3. Calj version 3.7
    iPhone 10.1.1

    When restrictions are set to; “specific websites only”, (in the restrictions menu, click “websites) the app opens for a second then closes by itself.

    1. Thank you for reporting. Are you running iOS 10.1.1? And please can you tell me if the Websites Restrictions are turned on, in the system’s settings, or not?
      Thank you for your help.

      1. Yes, the OS is 10.1.1.
        I am not sure what restrictions you are referring to, but only the notifications were turned off.

        This is occurring on both an iPhone 6s, and an iPad (not a new one).

        I also have 2 iPhone 4’s, one of which I just updated and the problem is occurring there too. (7.1.2).

  4. FYI. The problem was apparently time dependent. It was gone the next day when I opened the app on all three of my Apple devices. THANKS!!

  5. Since upgrading to the latest update of the iPhone CalJ app, it crashes as soon as it displays the new tip of the day feature.
    There is no way for me to switch off this feature, since the app crashes before I can do anything else.
    I am using iOS 7.1.2 running on an iPhone 4.

    1. Irv,
      Thank you for reporting. I will try to see what I can do as soon as possible.
      Meanwhile, can you try to launch the app in Airplane mode, and tell me if it accepts to open without crashing?

      Thank you,
      Col tuv,

  6. Since the APP updated today (Dec 12/2016) it does not open at all.
    Using Iphone 6+ and IOS 10.1.1
    Please advise.

    1. Thank you for using my app.
      You’re right, version 3.8.2 contains a defect. I repaired it in an update 3.8.3 which I submitted to Apple for release: as always it stands in their queue and I hope they will publish it soon to the AppStore.

      Thank you for your patience.
      The defect affects only a user who has more than one bookmarked city.

      If you can afford to lose your settings (Custom Anniversaries mostly), you may suppress and reinstall the app without waiting for Apple to release my patch.

      Thanks again, and sorry about that.


  7. This changed to a language that was not English. How do I keep it in English. Also I can not get back to the calendar.

  8. Every time I open the app it sends me to turn on notifications, even tho my notifications for this app are already turned on! I have an iPhone 8 and the problem is super annoying please help.

    1. Hi, thank you for using my app.
      What is the version number of your installed CalJ app? (Settings tab, ‘About’ menu).


  9. Hi Gabriel,

    Using Iphone 6 Plus, ios 12.1.2 ( I know there was an update, but prefer not to if possible), v.4.47 of CalJ

    Recently, when I try to open the app it flashes the opening screen, but “closes” immediately. The app doesn’t actually close, but it immediately switches to the home screen. When I double-click the home button to bring up my open apps it appears on the list, but if I select it if flashes for a second and switches back to home screen.

    The last time I have confirmation it works is April 3, 2019. I’ve tried to open since then and it may have worked in early April, but without success for the last several weeks at least. I figured updating to the new version would fix, but hasn’t seemed to. I’ve tried switching to airplane mode and turning off wi-fi with the same result.

    Any option other than updating ios?

    1. Dear Mark,

      First of all, thank you very much for a detailed and complete report of the situation.

      I think that upgrading iOS is not mandatory.
      Could you please check whether your system is configured to send crash reports automatically? They might help me discover the issue (please refer to Apple’s documentation if you don’t know where/how to activate the debug reports upload).

      Besides, if you are interested in participating to the Beta-testing group, please indicate me so, and you will receive an invite to download an alternate version of my app, containing the latest attempts not yet released to the general App Store.

      Thanks again,

  10. Today being שבעה עשר בתמוז I tried to use CalJ (V 4.20.1, iOS V 14.5.1) to daven minchah. What was missing is the second part of אבינו מלכנו after the section לתענית צבור (starting with א״מ הצמח לנו until the end). Please fix this bug before the next fast day. Otherwise I love this app!!! Thank you.

    1. Thank you very much!
      I will see what I can do, בעזרת ה״. But I might not have the time to do it quick!
