In today’s fast-changing world in which many people lead a more hectic lifestyle, it would be very handy for smartphone users to have an application that allows them to stay committed to their belief despite their busy work schedule. Muslim Pro is a comprehensive Islamic mobile application providing accurate prayer times based on the user’s location, worldwide Qibla directions, an integration with popular location based application Foursquare to find Halal restaurants or Mosques and a convenient way to read and learn the Quran. It is available for iOS and Android as well as on the web (www.muslimpro.com) for prayer times and Qibla directions.
To date, the Muslim Pro mobile app has been downloaded over 5 million times, especially from Muslim countries with high and growing smartphone penetration such as Saudi Arabia, the United Emirates, Indonesia, Malaysia, Turkey and Morocco as well as countries with large Muslim communities such as France, the United Kingdom, the United States or Singapore.
In addition, Muslim Pro has proved useful to Muslims who are constantly on the go. “This app has most of all that one requires in one neat app. It’s been a perfect traveling companion through many different time zones from China to South East Asia to the UK. From solat times to Qibla finder it even has a Qur’an with downloadable audio files. The traveler will find the list of local masjids and halal restaurants handy in a strange city. It simply does the job,” commented another user from Malaysia.
To cater to non-Android and iOS users, the Singapore-based mobile developer, Bitsmedia recently also launched a web version of the app available at http://www.muslimpro.com. The website is user-friendly and leverages modern browser technologies and Google’s cloud computing and CDN services in order to load faster than conventional offerings on various screen format (desktop, tablet, mobile).
“We are extremely excited about the very positive feedback we are getting from Muslims around the world. That is our motivation to make Muslim Pro even better!” said Erwan Mace, CEO of Bitsmedia, the compay that developed Muslim Pro.
