Find out if you've been praying in the right direction all these years...

Where's Mecca? serves people who are on the constant move and need to know where to face in order to pray towards Mecca.

Where's Mecca finds the user's latitude and longitude in the world and points an arrow in the praying direction. If the phone moves, the arrow moves accordingly. The direction is found according to the Great-Circle on the Earth between the user's location and the location of Mecca.

No more trying to find the sun relative to the time of day and calculating in your head in which direction you need to pray. Especially useful when traveling and haven't figured out the praying direction for your new location.

Uses the iPhone 3GS Compass in order to do the calculation.
