App: Hijri


 Hijri for Windows Phone and Hijri Converter for Windows 8

* If you like Hijri for Windows phone, you might also like Saudi Calendar app (التقويم السعودي).

Hijri is a simple application that performs conversion between Hijri and Gregorian dates. It provides a simple interface to convert Hijri-to-Gregorian and Gregorian-to-Hijri dates.

Hijri (for Windows Phone):

In v1.1 a nice feature was added to the converter. This feature is a live tile that shows you today’s date in Hijri, and updates automatically.

The v1.0 of this application used the online service provided by IslamicFinder.org because of the high accuracy of the conversion on this site. Anyway, starting from v1.1, I have moved the service to my own private server so that the conversion is much faster now.

Starting from version 2.0, the conversion is being done using the open API conversion service provided by www.HijriCal.org. The conversion methods used by the HijriCal.org API are:

1. Um-Alqura Calendar (the official calendar of Saudi Arabia). This calendar provides conversion for Hijri dates from 1350 to 1500 hijri. The dates before or after that are converted using option 2.

2. The Hijri calculation method used by Center of Oriental Studies in Zurich University.

If you spot any bugs, please send me reports. Also if you have any suggestions for features to include in the next version, please feel free to contact me on   info (at) mohammedalani.com

Important Notes Regarding the live tile:

1. If you want to turn off the periodic automatic updating of the live tile, please do it from inside the applications. Do not turn the task off from the phone “Settings” menu as it would cause a conflict with the application settings.

2. If you turn off the auto-update of live tile, the live tile will be updated when you start the application.

3. In case you don’t see the date on the live tile, just wait for a few seconds, the tile will flip and show you the date on the back.

4. If you do not open the application for 14 days, the live tile will stop being updated. This is WP7 restriction, for all periodic tasks.

* Move the conversion service to Hijrical.org.

v1.1: (Release date 25-2-2012)
