I came across this very useful Islamic Organizer to help you manage your prayer schedule in an interactive way, whatever cultural variations between Muslims across the world.
This app has an friendly and comfortable user interface with a touch of Islamic look and feel and the S60 edition supports 5 user interface (UI) languages, which mean, depending on the mobile devices currently selected language. Namely it supports English, Arabic, French, Farsi, and Urdu. Only English and Arabic UI for S40 devices users.
Prayer times for any location all over the world. It has a database with more than 200 countries and 1000 cities with the ability to add, remove and edit any location. Luckyly Sri Lanka is included with 5 cities – Colombo; Galle; Jaffna; Kandy and Moratuwa. All known prayer calculation methods are included as well, that is Um Ul-Qura, Muslim World League, Karachian University, North American Association and Egyptian Survey. You can also advance the prayer alert time by 1-30 minutes.This means that you can set the exact Adhan time of your local mosque.
You can select different Azan voice from Makka, Medina, Egypt or you can have one from phone gallery.
One of the best features I like in this app is the ability to automatically switch the mobile profile to silent mode during the prayers. Its easy, just set a time at which it will go in to silent mode and the duration, after which it will go back to your default profile. You can set this profile change to all five prayers seperatly.
This app comes with an advanced method for Qibla directions using GPS. So if your phone is equiped with GPS, you can make use of this. Useful if you are n an un-known teritory.
Full Hijri and Gregorian calendars with the ability to switch between them. All important Islamic events are already fed into the Islamic Organiser’s calendar, and all the events on your device’s calendar is automatically synchronised to the organiser’s calendar.
