iPhone OMER COUNTER
Get the neohasid iPhone app Omer Counter from the App store! (Click here for everything OMER on neohasid—widgets, Rainbow Day, blessing the trees, etc.)
Currently the app switches day and date at 2am local computer time. That's a legacy from the Omer widget (see explanation below). The next update will switch to sunrise/sunset times using precise GPS. Make sure you download the app and you'll get the update information when it comes out.
Follow the links below to go straight to the App store and install the app. Or just search in the App store under "omer" – you'll find two versions, one free and one paid (the paid one is a small donation to neohasid). WISH LIST: We need someone to help make versions for Android! (and Windows Phone, and dare I suggest Blackberry?) Contact us if you can help.
Please make a donation if you appreciate this app! Thank you.
Joseph Smith from England asked me April 5, 2013 why the iPhone app switches days at 2am, and the reason is entirely a legacy from the Omer count widget. I thought I shoud put the explanation on both pages for people to look at.
