Ramadan Apps On Ovi
Application stores like Ovi are not all about entertainment, as some may think. The goal is to serve as many segments as possible. Islamic apps are big business and Ovi wants to promote its brand by providing these free apps. More at nokia.com/Ramadan or from the Download folder on the main menu on their Nokia device.
This year’s Ramadan applications are feature packed, and include the Holy Quran, Prayer Times, Hadeeth, Zakah Calculator, Mozzaker, Hajj and Umrah and Cards. New features include Quran recitation from multiple recitors, which users can choose to download, based on their preference and in MP3 form. Prayer timings and Qibla direction are provided for 1000 cities in 200 countries, along with the ability to add, remove, update and edit any location using the GPS. The new Zakah Calculator helps Muslims calculate Zakah based on their income.
The Ramadan applications are developed by ASGATech, a Forum Nokia Premium Partner in the Middle East, with all content reviewed and approved by Al Azhar Al Shareef.
