I have some serious trust issues when it comes Qibla Finder apps as I feel many of them are inaccurate, however, it comes as great news that Google’s Developers just released a Qibla Finder. Not only that, but it also uses augmented reality, so it will show exactly where the Qibla should be.
I tried it at the office, made sure GPS was on and it pointed at the couch which is where the Qibla is, much more convenient than other ways of finding the Qibla. Best part is you don’t need an app or any special requirements to do this, all you need is a phone with internet.
- Enable GPS on your phone
- Goto http://g.co/QiblaFinder
- Allow website to know your location and open your camera
That’s it! The website should now show you where the Qibla is while also showing your surroundings though the camera, pretty neat.
