The 5 Mobile Apps that Google Recommends for Ramadan 2017
Article by George Norman
On 29 May 2017
Back in 2015, Google introduced My Ramadan Companion, a web portal that offers useful information to the millions of Muslims who observe the holy month of fasting. At launch, the portal presented the time the sun rises and sets, featured various Ramadan recipes and dishes, helped you find the nearest charity Iftar, presented Ramadan-related YouTube videos, and recommended several mobile apps (see here).

Now that Ramadan 2017 is underway (it started on Friday, May 26, and will come to an end on Saturday, June 24), you might want to visit Google’s Ramadan portal once again. Do so and you’ll uncover that Google recommends the 5 mobile apps listed below.
