Version History

Launched Feb 28, 2011 (about 8 years ago).

Releasing new versions every 7 months, on average.

Nov 08

• Added the ability to pinch-to-zoom on the page.
• Added the scrubber back for quick navigation between chapters.
• Bug fixes and enhancements

Nov 03
Version 4.2

Oct 12
Version 4.1

The big update in this version is that you can now choose from 26 additional reciters. You don't even need to download the entire Qur'an's audio files at a time. You can download just the Chapter you're studying. This will help you manage the storage space on your device. You can also sample audio from the different reciters before downloading a chapter, and you can delete audio files if you want to reclaim storage space on your device. Just keep an eye on your connection. You probably should not download large files when on a cellular connection, but do so when connected via Wi-Fi.

Other changes include:
• We now highlight the matching text in search results
• The "Help" button has moved to the Settings screen. In its place is the "Auto Play" button. This was done because if you're like me, you'll use "Auto Play" all the time, and want to access it quickly.
• A very subtle shadow was added to the page under the page that's being turned. You probably won't notice it unless you look for it, but it makes the book appear more realistic.
• Some people didn't realize that you could navigate to a page, chapter or part by tapping on the displays in the panel under the book. That's my fault for not making those buttons look like buttons. So now, those buttons have borders, so you know that you can tap on them.

I hope you like this update. If you do, please leave it a favorable review.

Version 3.2

Several bugs have been fixed in this version

• The translation of verses in Surah Taubah was off by one verse.
• Autorotation sometimes didn't work
• On the iPhone in portrait mode, panning the book didn't follow the finger closely.

I apologize for any inconvenience they may have caused you and thank you for your comments and bug reports.
