Read the Noble Quran (Koran/Coran) from the palm of your hands on the new Android OS. The software provides Arabic verses alongside numerous selectable translations:

  • Other English Translations in Pro: Mohsin Khan, Yusuf Ali, Pickthal, Mohammad Asad
  • Transliteration (in Pro)
  • French Translation (in Pro)
  • German Translation (in Pro)
  • Indonesian Translation (in Pro)
  • Melayu Translation (in Pro)
  • Spanish Translation (in Pro)
  • Turkish Translation (in Pro)
  • Bosnian Translation (in Pro)
  • Russian Translation (in Pro)

Innovative Index Screen
A fully interactive index screen with multiple columns giving you all the information you need. Surah Titles, Hezb Portion Shortcuts and Juz Shortcuts can be scrolled separately.

Recitation (Requires SD Card)
Listen to your favorite reciter with verse by verse recitation of the surah you wish to hear. With the unique follow-up feature, iQuran scrolls the screen automatically whilst you read and hear the Quran being reciter to you. A particular verse can be selected for playback by stopping current playback, tapping the new ayah and tapping "Play" again. Download and manage recitation files at will for different surahs (chapters) by different reciters. Currently supported reciters (along with the maximum space required if all surahs for that particular reciter are downloaded):

  • Sheikh Husary (~417 MB)
  • Sheikh Mishary Al-Afasy (~587 MB) (in Pro)
  • Sudais & Saood Shuraim (~412 MB) (in Pro)
  • Abu Bakr Ash-Shaatree (~522 MB) (in Pro)
  • Abdul Basit (~574 MB) (in Pro)
  • Ghamdi (~339 MB) (in Pro)
  • Others coming soon for iQuran Pro! Will automatically appear in iQuran under the available reciters list

Repeat Bubbles
In recitation mode you have the ability to:

  • Move to the next Surah when recitation ends for a surah
  • Repeat the same Surah
  • Repeat each Ayah from 1 to Infinity times before moving to the next (very helpful for those who wish to memorize a surah)

Don't want to lose the last verse you were reading? Or would like to place a marker for later reading? Use the Bookmarks feature to manage those favourite ayahs (verses). To add/delete a bookmark, simply tap and hold your finger on any ayah for one second.

Bookmark Notes (Coming Soon)
Read an ayah and would like to make notes? With the Bookmark Note feature, you will always be able to capture your thoughts, observations or simply add comments whereever and whenever you wish. This will be a Pro feature only.

Audio Bookmark (Coming Soon)
The bookmark view has a special bookmark at the top of the screen called an Audio Bookmark. This will remind you of the last ayah that was played back in a particular surah. This way you never forget which Surah/Ayah was playing when you stopped or closed iQuran.

iQuran will support various languages for its interface in the near future

  • English
  • Arabic (supported partially at the moment)
  • French (coming soon)

Easy Scrolling
With the all-in-one display, read the Quran while you scroll from ayah to ayah with a single drag. If a translation is selected, this will be displayed right after the corresponding Arabic text.

Verse Jumping
Although scrolling is good, it can become tiresome where the chapter is long or when you want to go to a particular ayah directly. Use the side bar and swipe your finger from top to bottom, and vice versa, to go to a verse quickly. This technique has been named Fast Scrolling

Quick Ayah Scrolling (Coming Soon)
In non-recital mode, tapping once on the ayah column (the fast scroll column) will scroll and make the next ayah visible.

Surah storage management (Coming Soon)
Audio data for Surahs can become very big and with little space left on your device, at times you may wish to keep the actual Quranic Text but not the audio for a particular surah or by a particular reciter. iQuran allows you to delete individual reciters, or surah audio by individual reciters, keeping in tact the actual text. One may even wish to remove all translations and only keep the arabic text.

iQuran Pro
iQuran Pro for Android offers extra translations, recitations and unlimited bookmarks along with notes. The basic version has 5 bookmarks supported, one English translation and one Reciter.
