About Khaled A.


  1. I just want to ask about the ipray, i installed the free version, but the Qibla direction is not working, it just gives me the location of Qibla in a steady position that indicates its location from my position with out moving if i moved the iphone, I have iPhone 3g s, and I have another qibla location wich is working normally. the question is; is the free version doesn’t support the compas in iPhone 3Gs? or do I have to do any change in any kind of settings to make it work?
    thx in advance 

  2. Yes dear, the Lite version does not use the compass, while the full version do ..

    iPray “Full” will hit the App Store in the coming few days إن شاء الله ..

    Thanks for asking ..

  3. Thx all, the problem is that I don’t know how to get a paid account to buy the full versions. Is there any shop that sell gift card or something like that in KSA? I live in Madina, and as u know there is no apple shop here (as I know till now).
