Find new places

How to use it:

Search for your destination and you will get the different routes and methods that will get you there in the shortest amount of time.

Example:

Inviting people over for Iftar at your home for the first time and worrying about whether your party of 7 will know how to get to your place on time, and without getting lost, is no longer an issue. Simply send them your location on Google maps and let the app show them the best route to your house.


Google Calendar

How to use it: Create events, reminders, or even goals on your Google Calendar to keep up with the many invitations you get during Ramadan.

Example:

Plug an invitation and its details into the Calendar app and you’ll be reminded of where you need to be and when. You can also invite people through your Calendar by simply plugging their emails in an event you created and the app will take care of reminding them, like a personal assistant.
