Hello Schturman, with this app I can now read Hebrew texts in the Biblia Hebraica  that is for download in the Jolla bible app (as far as I am able to) and I can decipher mail from Israël.  Thank you!

Hello Schturman,

 I had to reboot my Jolla.  Then I installed Hebrew 2, but I only got squares. Formerly I had installed Hebrew 4 and this did work. Now I want to have Hebrew 4 again, but first I have to remove Hebrew 2. How do I uninstall this?
