Guidance overview

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.

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 ?
