The most accurate application to obtain Qibla / Mecca direction.
Very simple user interface, just run the application and you’ll get Qible direction instantaneously.
To get the best accuracy, hold your device flat with its screen facing sky and make sure there is no ferrous metal objects and electromagnetic fields nearby.
The application uses Compass, GPS and Magnetic sensors along with “Spherical law of cosines” and “Great-circle distance” to obtain qibla direction.
1. The North Magnetic Pole moves over time due to magnetic changes in the Earth’s core. My Qibla uses the most recent location of the north magnetic pole.
2. The Compass sensor readings could be incorrect in the presence of external magnetic fields nearby, My Qibla provides warnings and instructions to obtain the most accurate Qibla direction.
3. My Qibla uses your last known location to obtain direction quickly and then invokes more precise location from GPS every minute.
