Mobile for Ramadan

This week marks the beginning of Ramadan, and this year mobile is making it easier than ever for Muslims to nativgate this important observance.

From yesterday’s Washington Post article by Samantha Henry:

The most ancient traditions of Islam are going high-tech, with a slew of modern offerings for those observing the holy month of Ramadan, which begins this week. Cell phone applications such as “iPray” or “iQuran” offer a beeping reminder of requisite prayer times, while the “Find Mecca” and “mosque finder” programs help the Muslim traveler in an unfamiliar city find the nearest place to pray.
