Make Aliyah From Your Hand!

OMG, there is seriously an iPhone application for everything.

Now, if you are thinking of making aliyah, you can do it from the palm of your hand with your snazzy i.Aliyah iPhone and iPod Touch application.  Just download the app, and be on your way to downloading a brand new Israeli citizenship.

Yes, this is very cool. But, let's be honest. The Jewish Agency's (JA) new Aliyah app takes all the fun out of making Aliyah.

I mean, what happened to the old school Aliyah method of going from bureaucratic building to bureaucratic building, sitting for hours in uncomfortable waiting room chairs only to realize that you haven't taken a number because there is no sign, but somehow everyone else seemed to know that you need to take one and no one decided to tell you...and then getting yelled at by the overworked woman at the window who hates her job and doesn't speak English....?

The new i.Aliyah proposed to help make the whole process a little bit easier.  The JA is spoonfeeding you Aliyah through your phone.  Amazing.
