Dubai, June 30, 2014
UAE-based Eton Institute has launched the Ramadan App, which is a mobile application filled with relevant information to guide both local and expat communities through the holy month.
The app contains essential information for those observing the fast, with features such as prayer and Iftar timings, Qibla direction, a Mosque locator and healthy tips to consider while fasting, said a statement.
It also includes practical information for people experiencing Ramadan for the first time in the Middle East. It includes cultural tips, daily Arabic phrases, glossary of terms and the dos and don’ts specific to the period, it said.
Hana Fuchs, marketing director at Eton Institute, said: "As a company founded and headquartered in the UAE, the Eton Institute Ramadan App is our way of giving back to the community during this very special time and supporting the vision of connecting minds and building cultural bridges.”
As part of the institute's Summer For Change campaign, the Ramadan App allows users to learn more about this initiative, which includes local charitable activities and online donations to three international organisations. - TradeArabia News Service
