Multiple translations, verse-by-verse recitation and fluid scrolling makes the iQuran app by Guided Ways Technologies a valuable tool for observant Muslims.

The interactive iQuran includes the complete Quran in Arabic, as well as translations in English, French, German, Indonesian, Spanish and Turkish, among others. Users can also navigate Surah (chapter) titles, Hezb Portion shortcuts and Juz shortcuts on the multicolumn index screen.

You can also jump from verse to verse quickly if you don’t want to read through the entire chapter. And if you scroll down from the selected Ayah, you can return by simply tilting the phone forward.

If you prefer to listen to recitations, there are six readers (more will be forthcoming) available for download via the app. And for those working on memorization, each Ayah can be repeated up to five times.

In addition, easy-to-use bookmarks allow you to save your place in written and audio verse with a swipe of your finger. However, the basic version of the app supports only three bookmarks. The iQuran Pro app has unlimited bookmark capabilities.
