Speaking about the launch, Rahul went on to throw light on the special features of the app.The progressive text feature allows the user to read along when the Quran is being read out over the application. The mapping of words to audio was a major breakthrough as it would now allow everyone to read the Quran irrespective of whether they can read Arabic or not. They can just follow the audio mapped to the text and read the Quran.
The company have developed an all new adaptive streaming and caching technology that allows users to enjoy a great app experience even on networks that do not support high speed data. This will ensure that people across the globe can experience the app the way it should be irrespective of their data speeds.The prayer alert feature would automatically play out an Azan to remind the user of his prayer times. This happens automatically based on the user’s location with no manual inputs needed to set the local time. This is good news for travelers as the app would automatically set the prayer timings based on location. The prayer compass too is a handy tool while traveling as it lets the user know which direction to offer his prayers in.
