9 iPhone Apps for Baha’is

August 30, 2013, in Articles > Baha'i Life, by

Nowadays you can find mobile apps for just about anything, and thankfully mobile apps related to the Baha’i Faith are slowly on the rise.

It’s been over a year that we posted about 5 Unique Baha’i Apps for Android and 5 Unique Baha’i Apps for the iPhone, and with iPhone continuing to dominate the mobile app market, we thought it was time to write up another list of some more Baha’i iPhone apps to serve as a resource for all you iPhone wielding Baha’is out there.

If you’re an Android user, no need to fret, as most of these apps can also be found on Android as well.

Let’s begin!

1. When is the next Feast?

For those of you who, like me, can never remember when the next 19 Day Feast is, this great little app tells you when the next Feast or Holy Day is, and how many days to go. Its built in calendar lets you explore the full calendar of Baha’i special days.

2. Ridvan Messages

Explore the Ridvan messages and statements from the Baha’i International Community in many languages instantly. Be ready with the right texts at the right time for the next election or at the next reflection gathering.

3. Baha’i International Community United Nations Office

Access all the Baha’i International Community United Nations Office news, videos and statements in one place. Includes office locations, contact information, maps, representative bios, and a listing of the Office’s 150+ national affiliates.

View the ‘Baha’i International Community United Nations Office’ App in iTunes.

4. Baha’i Prayers & Writings Study Tool

This app is a reference library, a memorization tool and a vocabulary trainer for Baha’i prayers and the sacred writings.

5. Baha’i Daily Quotes

Baha’i Daily Quotes gives you access to hundreds of short powerful quotes from Baha’u’llah and the Bab to assist in fulfilling our obligation to “Recite ye the verses of God every morn and eventide…”. I use this app a lot when I’m travelling, and unlike many similar apps out there, you don’t need an internet connection to use it.

6. Fast 19

This nifty little app helps you with sunrise and sunset times for the Fast based on your exact location. You can choose from over 350 cities, or let your device geo-locate you. It also includes detailed information on the Fast (in English only) as well as prayers in several languages.

7. 3 Pray

Access the three Baha’i Obligatory Prayers with directions to Bahji updated live as you move. You’ll never have to guess which way to face again for your Obligatory prayer again, and the app includes detailed history on the prayers (in English only) as well as prayers in about a dozen languages.

8. Baha’i Children’s Prayers

Baha’i Children’s Prayers is a collection of prayers by Baha’u’llah and Abdu’l-Baha for children of all ages. This app will give children a nice experience with beautiful graphics as well.

9. Introduction to the Baha’i Faith

This app contains information on Baha’i history and the central figures of the Faith, Baha’u’llah, Abdu’l-Baha, and Shoghi Effendi. It’s a great app for Baha’is, and for those who wish to learn the basics of the Faith.

Thanks for this really cool list of iPhone Apps! I’ve downloaded a few more that I didn’t know about, so thanks. Also, there is another really good one to help us memorise quotes. It’s called iMemorize and can be found here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/imemorize-mobile/id408402970?mt=8. The App already includes a large selection of quotes from many religions, Ruhi books, historical figures, as well as general inspiration and philosophy quotes. It also allows for the possibility to enter in your own quotes. Really nice App! You can access their “game” directly on their website: http://www.imemorize.org.
