The iGragger For Purim for your iPhoneCleveland, OH - Purim should be festive and fun, say entrepreneurs Stuart Rubin and Brad Kleinman.

In that spirit, these two “nice Jewish boys” from Cleveland plan to celebrate their peoples’ salvation from the evil Haman with “Grogger Factory,” a “synagogue friendly” application the pair launched last month for Apple’s iPhone and iPod Touch.

The mobile app, which can be downloaded for 99 cents from iTunes, enables users to build their own unique gregger (noisemaker) from multiple models, textures, backgrounds and sounds. The three-dimensional noisemaker spins and makes a satisfying racket when the user gently shakes the chosen “iDevice.”

Have they gotten a hechsher for it?

I would think that unlike the iLulav (which is fairly clearly not acceptable as a lulav), it would not be difficult to get one for an iPhone grogger, seeing as Purim is not yontif and there are (I think) relatively little restrictions on what can be used to drown out the name of Haman harasha

All the descriptions and articles about Lulav Wizard make is pretty clear that it's not intended to replace the real mitzvah of waving the lulav. It's obviously for educational use in advance of the mitavah. It has instructions, prayers, etc.

Grogger Factory does have a visceral sensation that Rusty Brick's app does not. The Factory really lets you "build" a grogger, and then spin in in 3D. Some of the sounds are hilarious and will be a hit in shul. They're both good, but serve different purposes.
