A Singapore-based company has launched an iPhone app alerting Muslims when to pray and in which direction they should face even when they're 35,000 feet in the air.
Crescent Trips, an iPhone app alerting Muslims when to pray and in which direction they should face, even when they are 35,000 feet in the air, is seen on an iPhone in Singapore, on August 13, 2013. The app, developed by Crescentrating, a firm that gives "halal" or Islam-compliant ratings to hotels and other travel-related establishments, will be made available to Android phones within months.
Travellers input the flight details and are provided with prayer times during their journey, as well as the direction of the Muslim holy city of Mecca.
