Good app


Indeed it is best application. seriously all of you people need to to try this and share your comments too.


I like iQuran, but I don’t need the Arabic part on my small phone.
My favorite right now is The Holy Quran by peace through understanding, there are quite some options like different backgrounds and font size (!) and search, and I personally like the index a lot, where you can look for topics and jump right to the part in the Holy Quran


simply the best


Can’t deny that this is the best


You’ve just got to admit it


The only problem with iQuran is that it does not remember last position automatically and font size cannot be changed.

BiQuran does both things.

Holy Quran

I would recommend Holy Quran by Mobizfun the best. It has multiple arabic scripts to choose from. Many different translations, 14 international reciters, many different colorful themes, font adjustment for arabic and translation text, powerful search and many more features not other Quran app has i think.

Holy Quran Lite
