What is Guidance for Mac

Guidance is a prayer times application for OS X. Designed to be simple and elegant, Guidance sits in the menu bar and shows a countdown until the next prayer. When it's time for prayer, Guidance displays a Growl notification and plays the adhan. Guidance stays out of the way while providing you with current prayer time information.

What's new in Guidance

Version 2.0.9:
  • Removed blur effect to fix compatibility issue with the latest version of macOS

Sure it doesn't have every option under the sun (only timings are Shaafi, Maliki, Hanbali or Hanafi. Fajr and Isha settings can be specified by committee but ICNA nor ISNA are mentioned, maybe they're the 'North America' selection? albeit specific angles can be entered and you can get that from the sites whose prayer times you and/or your local mosque adhere to) but for prayer timings/reminders it's the best game in town. You can set specific MP3s for adhaan and adjust specific times per prayer time... it's a lot more adjustable than other reviews might lead you to believe, it just takes a little fine tuning.

I live in an area where no Athan software ever gets the timings that match with the local mosque. This software doesn't have any settings. It's AS-IS. So, doesn't help me at all. Very bad.

Absolutely terrible. BEWARE. Do not install new version. Very difficult to delete once installed. Tried to re-install 1.4.2 (older version for MAC 10.7 and earlier) and my MAC refused to accept it because it wasn't through the Apple Store. The new Guidance was totally frozen.. No custom settings. Different Adhan reciters. Why did they have to change something that was just fine?

I installed the app and under Preferences I selected the app to load on every startup but the app doesn't load on startup and when I go back to the settings, the box is unchecked. Any one of a solution ?

This is what I was looking for. This application is made for Mac. It's intuitive, easy to set up, well thought out, and with nice azan sounds. My only comment is that it does not allow for additional custom azans. Love it. Nice job.

This is a welcome addition to the limited number of applications available on the Mac platform that enable automatic notification of prayer times for Muslim users. I have been using Athan Pro v3.6 on my PC (http:// www.islamicfinder.org) and have found that their calculation have been close to what my local prayer times should be with only a few adjustments here and there. The application provide comprehensive means to adjust the settings from the latitudes/longitudes, methods, location, athans sounds etc. and I have found it to be invaluable to my needs and I believe others. As a comparison, Guidance 1.3 also provide most of the tweaks and adjustment options available in Athan Pro but I found that some of the options are not as detailed or a bit limited. For example, minute adjustment in Guidance only goes to 15 minutes each way (30 minutes ± in Athan Pro), the option of playing the Du'a/suplication after Athan is not available and the location database is limited (and not easily adjustable to fine tune). In the other hand, Guidance ability to pause iTunes when Athan is playing or the inclusion of Growl notification (much more better than Windows balloon in my opinion) gives it advantage over the Windows offering. However, the one most important thing for this kind of application is the ability to provide prayer times to match as closely as possible to your local mosque's published prayer times (as an authoritative figure) but unfortunately, Guidance is far from close on all method of calculations in determining Fajr and Isha' prayer times (the usual Achilles' heel on this type of application). For example, for Manchester, Greater Manchester, UK on June 1st, 2009 with ISNA as the method and standard/default settings on the rest, IslamicFinder.org (Athan Pro) gives you Fajr/Isha' time of 02h31/23h42 compared to Guidance's 01h21/01h06 respectively. As you can see the differences are big enough to warrant a careful observation of the times given by Guidance. Perhaps, in the future the developer could offer a much more detail adjustment or choices to the settings but for now I think this application is much better than the rest of the offerings on the Mac platform in term of features and usage and if you find you are using this application, do watch for the prayer times given and adjust or make note accordingly. With no cost whatsoever to the end user (donation is encouraged or the very least, make a prayer for them for their good deeds), this application is promising and will be invaluable to Muslim users anywhere they are. May Allah give rewards to them for enabling us to observe our daily prayer times on our Mac.
