Azan Android Application

Just published my first Android application called: Azan

This application takes your address as input, determines your location information(latitude, longitude and timezone), look up the prayer times associated with the location and then plays Azan whenever it is due.

The app supports various calculation methods and both Shia and Sunni recitations.


Search the Android market with the application's name "Azan" or my name "Sibtay" and you should find the app named Azan (Beta).

Daylight Adjustments

A manual step is required, whenever daylight times are adjusted in your locality. You just have to reconfigure your app. The adjusted timezone offset would be picked implicitly and used in prayer time calculations.


Sarah Jamal for helping in the UI design and testing. The app uses the excellent webservices from this website to lookup all prayer times based on latitude, longitude, timezone and date. For icons. The icons developed by Nicholas Roach are used For the beautifull Islamic icons.
