Alerts for Mincha prayer times that adjust automatically and in the background according to the date and your location. Can also show the day number of the Hebrew Date in the app icon.
How it works:
- Launch Mincha Alerts once and configure the alerts you wish to receive.
- From now on you'll receive automatically adjusted alerts for the right times for the Mincha prayer.
- When traveling, the reminders will auto adjust to your new location. No need to launch the application.
- Always up to date reminders no matter where you are and what date it is.
Mincha Alerts uses the (new for iOS4) low power significant change of location service to auto-update the alerts without consuming significant power.
Mincha Alerts uses local notifications and thus does not need an active Internet connection for alerts to works.
NOTE: you need a device with cellular capabilities to use this application (such as an iPhone or an iPad 2) - and location services must be turned on.
NEW BONUS: option to show day number of the hebrew date in application icon (badge). This option is turned off by default.

Ratings and Reviews
I often missed the afternoon prayer, not anymore since I installed this nice little app. It reminds me every day at the right time, and I don't even need to launch the app anymore, it changes the time of my alerts in the background as days go. It even adapts to my new location when I travel.
Bugs in the App???
Downloaded the app and it seems like there are bug/glitches. App indicated "mail" but no way to read or where to go for it? Also would be nice, if there were an actual sound at the time of alerts. The App does not have sounds. Some what disappointing to learn all this .
Please update the app, it does not work in the latest iOS
