SINGAPORE (18 April 2011) – Singapore-based mobile application developer Bitsmedia Pte Ltd has released Muslim Pro for Android on 13 April 2011.
This comes as the iPhone version of the application marked its millionth download in early April. According to Bitsmedia founder and app developer Erwan Macé, “We are very excited about the positive response to Muslim Pro; it has garnered one million downloads(*) in just eight months. This strong support has encouraged us to extend the reach of Muslim Pro beyond iPhone users. We are very pleased to roll out Muslim Pro for Android. We hope Android users too can enjoy the practical functions of Muslim Pro.”
Muslim Pro was first released in August 2010, just in time for Ramadan, the Muslim fasting month. The first application provided prayer and fasting times and included a Qibla (compass) that shows the direction of Mecca.
The latest version, Muslim Pro 3.2 for iPhone and the new beta version for Android, has been loaded with even more useful features. It includes the Holy Quran in six languages and a Muslim calendar that estimates holy dates. iPhone users can also find out about Halal restaurants and mosques wherever they may be using Foursquare.
“We strive to ensure that all our applications meet the needs of our users so that they get useful information in a reliable and easy to use interface,” added Macé.
(*) As of 16 April: 340,000 unique downloads and 660,000 updates
