    Power App GmbH today is pleased to introduce QiblaLocate 1.0 for iOS, their app that employs the GPS system of any iOS device to locate the qibla, the correct direction to face Mecca. Unaffected by the inaccuracies of magnetic north vs. true north, the app provides superior results. After starting the app, the user simply gives permission to use their current position as the basis for calculation, and the app immediately displays a large green arrow, a world map, and the exact distance and bearing to Mecca. For the 1.5 billion followers of Islam worldwide, the app provides a convenient solution to a question that arises several times daily.

    Moslems are not facing the city of Mecca when they pray, but rather the revered Kaaba, the central shrine in Mecca's Great Mosque. Although the surface of a globe permits facing in more than one direction to reach another point, only the great circle route, the shortest distance, is considered the qibla. QiblaLocate employs the satellite-based, GLobal Positioning System to accurately determine the user's present position, and the precise direction or qibla.

    Feature Highlights:
    * Locate Mecca accurately from anywhere on earth
    * Employs the GPS system built-in to iOS devices for all calculations
    * Not affected by the anomalies of a magnetic compass

    "Kiblat or QiblaLocate is a simple, convenient app for finding the qibla anytime, anywhere, with complete accuracy," stated Christian Schaffner, owner of Power App GmbH.

    Device Requirements:
    * iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch
    * iOS 3.2 or later (iOS 4 tested)
    * 1.5 MB

    Pricing and Availability:
    QiblaLocate 1.0 is $1.99 (USD) and available worldwide through the App Store in the Utilities category. Review copies are available upon request.
