"Prayer & Qibla" is “astronomically” very accurate App which calculates the daily Islamic prayer times with Qibla heading and the distance to Kaaba from any where, any date for “all” Islamic beliefs.
"Prayer & Qibla"'s calculations are based on GPS coordinates using the “accepted” sun elevation angle definitions of prayer times. Calendar conversion, phases of the moon and very sophisticated and accurate global navigation and mapping capabilities make it a very educational tool for iPhone or iPad users.
In the heart of the "Prayer & Qibla" is a collection of very accurate proprietary computer program routines which calculates sun’s, moon’s and some other stellar objects elevation and azimuth angles as a function of altitude, atmospheric pressure, temperature for a given date, time, which can be past, present or future for any GPS coordinates anywhere on earth from the North to the South pole! This is a claim that many, including very reputable major government organizations can not make! The "Prayer & Qibla" accuracy is only matched by US Naval Observatory or US Jet Propulsion Laboratory programs.
