Five Calculation Methods
iAthan/iAdhan/iAzan offers five famous prayer times calculation methods so that you may be able to switch between them based on your personal preference and locality.
Using custom prayer calculation method
If the built in calculations aren't good enough for you, you can set custom Fajr and Isha angles to compute prayer times - COMING SOON
Asr calculation methods
iAthan has both standard (Imam Shafi', Hanbali, Maliki) as well as Hanafi method.
Did you know that magnetic compasses are incorrect and cannot be trusted for getting the direction of Kabah? This is because the magnetic field changes and does not point to the TRUE North. iAthan/iAdhan/iAzan gives you an accurate direction of the Qibla based on True North as well as the relative direction from the current position of the Sun or the Moon in the sky.
Set a different volume for individual prayers! Want Fajr athan to be louder than Asr (when you're at work)? No problem. iAthan/iAdhan/iAzan lets you set volume for individual prayers to adapt your surroundings and circumstances.
Adjust individual prayer times
You can adjust prayer times individually by adding/subtracting minutes to each prayer time
Based on the all-in-one design of Prayer Times for Mobiles.
