Bayan Qur'an was by far the best Qur'an app for me. Brilliant design, very well thought out and I could sense the sincerity!
The font is still the best ever it is even better in the new version - alhamdulillaah!
I have read the whole Mushaf in the new version and have just a few things to say!
I welcome the update after a long absence of updates, however I have the following features that I dearly miss:
The disappearance of landscape view is a huge blow. The landscape view was simply brilliant, smooth easy and aided a great qur'an reading experience
Also the landscape view on iPads with two pages was a great support for Hifz students. I would love to have them restored - please do this
I would also like the restoration of the long press to bookmark. The current way is too long winded and grossly frustrating.
Another annoying feature is the screen refreshes. Every time you return to the app, either from switching to a different app or by closing your phone the screen refreshes losing the position you were on the page. This may seem minor but is extremely frustrating. Imagine you were reading and receive a phone call, you would have to start the page again - annoying!
Double tapping the page resets your zoom settings - this is a disaster. Please stop this.
Just a few additions:
Please add a portrait reading of both the Arabic and English - like iQuran,however the user should be able to choose to have either English or Arabic at the top. This has a huge impact on helping to understand the qur'an
Please can you add Saheeh international English translation as wel as the MAS Abdul Harlem (The Qur'an (Oxford World's Classics) https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/0199535957/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_zWqqzb83AKK0F)
With this this can be an amazing qur'an app - a leader bybfar
