  • Alarms
    NOTE: Due to a limitaion in the Palm, prayers times can only be calculated when the program is running. Therefore, whenever PrayerMinder is launched, it automatically adjusts the alarm warnings if prayer times change.
    So, if you use alarms, you should launch PrayerMinder every few days, so that the alarm times will get updated.
  • Qiblah finder Qiblah direction finder shows qiblah direction (direction of the Ka'bah) by pointing the device toward the sun.
  • Hijri date (adjustable).
  • Multiple locations to select from.
