HAJJNET, A DUBAI based company, has released a smart phone Umrah guide that will support millions of pilgrims in their pilgrimage and with full social media integration.

UmrahSalam is a mobile app that offers today’s pilgrim the real-time, location and process based support they need to focus on the spiritual aspects of fulfilling their religious obligations. Features include prompting pilgrims to read or hear the appropriate Duas or prayers at the right time and place; counting the number of Tawaf as they are being performed and full camera, map & social media integration.

UmrahSalam enables travellers to find their hotel from a comprehensive database, and pin it to a map so they can locate their hotel or any other landmark to avoid getting lost. A packing list helps them prepare for the journey while a digital journal helps them record and share locations and personal moments with loved ones.

UmrahSalam is available for a limited time as a free download on the iPhone, and soon on Android at www.hajjnet.com/umrah.
