Nokia, Microsoft Launch Ramadan apps

Nokia and Microsoft have jointly launched new Ramadan apps on the Windows 8 platform this year.

The new apps include Ramadan kareem, Qur’an Mojawed, Muslim Prayers, Essential Duas, and also Zomato, which features a special iftar and sahoor section on their website.

The new range of Ramadan relevant applications can now be downloaded directly from the Windows Phone Store.

Michael Mansour, Developer Platform and Technology Lead at Microsoft Gulf said, “This Ramadan, Nokia Lumia users will now have easy access to many of the cherished experiences that Muslims like to be close to, and keep them connected to Ramadan. Developers from the region have added various Islamic apps that would let users celebrate this Ramadan with renewed religious fervour and offer Ramadan-specific activities with greater ease and conviction. We are committed to providing Windows phone users with access to innovative applications for seamless experiences on the Windows 8 platform.”

“Developers in the region are very enthusiastic with the opportunities Ramadan apps offer on the Nokia Lumia smartphones with Windows Phone 8 as they constitute a “unique economy” within the Middle East app ecosystem. There has been a significant increase in this category and we are pleased to announce the availability of some of the most innovative applications relevant for this Ramadan season,” said Ahmed Arab, app marketing manager, Nokia MENA.
