The journey to develop Islamicaster started at Kuwait University, Computer Engineering department, in October 2011..
After the success of the application “Kuwait Prayer Times”, we were urged by our professor Mehmat Karaata to work on a more comprehensive Islamic application for our graduation project, and so we did…
Over the academic year, we carefully planned the user interface, services and functions of the application. We had also worked with a sponsoring design firm to generate all the graphic design. After completing the user interface implementation, the academic year ended, and we had to present the application at that point.
From there, the hard part began. We needed to implement all the necessary functions and services in the best way possible and avoid all the pitfalls found in other applications. Finally, here we are with the perfect application that has been carefully tested and perfected to achieve its current state!
