Loving it again

Just updating my review. I’m so sorry I disliked it earlier so I’m rewriting my review. I had an iPhone 6 and loved the app. Had no idea that when the app was updated it no longer worked right on that iOS which could only upgrade to 12 point something. Had to get a new iPhone today and now using iOS 14 . No idea everything changed and now my app works right again , the settings option is back & widgets make sense - almost. So sorry I didn’t realize the upgrade disabled the ability for me to use it as I had been and was so frustrated but now it’s back to working and this is my favorite Athan app. It’s simple and straight to the point and it works - yay!!!

Developer Response ,

Salam! Sounds like you're still on iOS 12, where the interface doesn't get the big update. Just update your phone and you'll be able to add widgets just like with any other app. For that, I'd recommend following Apple's tutorial on how to add widgets!

Best Athan app

As all the reviews say it, this one beats all athan apps easily. Do I need to say more?

Feedback for the dev:
- For Hanafi, add an options to have both ASR 1 and ASR 2 timings
(because some people need to know when Dhuhr ends and it’s annoying to switch back and forth)

- Make the sunrise time more realistic (because the sunrise time frame is short and should not extend all the way to the Dhuhr time. This is also needed so that we know when we can pray again after sunrise—since prayer is haram in this time frame)

- For the Qibla pointer, add a red point as to where we need to point similar to other athan apps

- Allow the option for the full athan to play when phone is locked

- For the 15m time reminder, add an option to play a specific sound from a selection of different sounds—this is different from disabling “Play Sound”
(because I get this notification often within a day and from the sound, I don’t if it’s from this app or another app. They all sound the same and drives me nuts)

Best athan app on the market

Back a few years ago this app wasn’t very usable. Prayer times were wrong and the app was glitchy. It just seemed like a little project back then. Now this app is refurbished and has never given me trouble. Runs very smooth and has the athan times at the exact time. Also being able to edit the colors is very visually pleasing. Last but not least, their are options between choosing who makes athan and even a marker that lets you see athan times all over the world. Great app.
