Are there good apps for learning Hebrew?

Do you know any great apps to help a youth's Hebrew self-study?

My son is 11, aiming for bar mitzvah, and by his own assessment might be more motivated to work on his Hebrew if it were coming from the warm comforts of an iProduct. (He's made some good progress with a primer, and is about halfway through the aleph-bet in terms of knowing the basic sounds.)

I'm looking for decoding fluency (letters-to-sounds getting faster and more fluent at reading, with longer and longer passages), pronounciation, some vocabulary, and also perhaps cantillation (though not expecting these to be the same app)
Cursive writing would also be nice to work on at some point, though it's lower priority.

Have you found any apps to be engaging, well-made and effective? Any great websites I should look at instead?

I loved Learn Hebrew Pod but I was using it for the purposes of learning spoken Israeli Hebrew (rather than prep for a Bar/Bat Mizvah).

But it looks like they have resources for Jewish prayers too.

Duolingo just added Hebrew.
