the plot reinvented.

salam, sister siri!

i was inspired by salem’s tweet from yesterday to play around with ios 5 a bit.

i discovered this library, which makes it pretty easy to hook into siri. i found out that a brother (by the name of Bilal Ahmad, may Allah reward him) had beaten me to the idea long ago, however, and made a nice prayertimes extension for siri.

i decided to play around anyway, and not too much later, i had my own version (requiring only one command rather than 2 in brother Bilal’s version). it queries salah.com for its prayer times, and currently only returns isna based times.

i have a few other ideas that i’d like to do with this if time permits insha’Allah as well. no real plans on releasing it, but if anyone is interested, drop me a line and i can send you the source insha’Allah.
