iPhone Apps: now on my iPod!

Tags | ,

// July 25th, 2008 // Blog

Today I downloaded the iPhone 2.0 Software Update on my iPod Touch. I am now using the new WordPress app to write this entry.

I have tried to blog from my iPod before, but there were too many problems, such as the inability to select categories, to consider it as a feasible method for regular blogging.

But this new app fixes all that, and could prove useful for jotting down thoughts on the go – as long as I am in a free wifi zone.

Another nice, free app is iQuran produced by Guided Ways. I like the fact that I can easily browse the Qur'an, surah by surah, verse by verse, selecting whichever one I want recited. It should prove useful for times that I need to check my recitation, inshā’Allāh.

There is a Pro version that has more reciters and more translations available than the free app. I am considering investing in a copy… though I'm not sure if it has been released yet.

So, what's your favourite App?

    Yay!

    I got isalati on my iPhone. LOVE IT! My adhaan goes off during class and work.

    The iQuran is great because if you need quick reference, or don’t want to touch the Quran, it’s perfect to browse.

    MxTube all the way.

    Download YouTube videos directly to your device. No need to convert files or download from my computer and then sync with my iPhone.

    The iPhone was just released in Canada about two weeks ago, though it’s ridiculously expensive. I got my first chance to play with one, and I have to admit, I was pretty darn impressed. I would consider one in the future, when the prices come down a bit.

    Organica: Silly question.. I wonder if women are allowed to touch the Arabic ayahs on the screen during their hayd or nifaas?

    Islam blog: I’ll be checking that out, insha’Allah.

    Sumi: Don’t be silly…!

    Faraz: How much is it? I thought Apple had slashed the price on the latest 3G model compared to the original. Umm… prices on Apple products usually remain quite steady, unless the next model comes out, and then the old model becomes obsolete in terms of “wantability” – a term I just made up.

    Assalaamu’alaykum sis

    *woosh* — way too technological and right over my head.. iQuran sounds good… but beyond my league…

    I’m still figuring out playing MP3s and videos on the same device, that’s not a laptop and on the go..haha. Old skool! *ahem*
