Great idea but many Islamic countries can't access Google market. Hence cannot download Qibla.which I believe is totally free according to your site.
I recommend that you provide direct download from your site for those unlucky ones that "market is blocked on their mobiles.

Thank you for your tips, the page has been updated and now it contains several download links. For all those who are not able to access the Android Market, the preferred way would be to download the APK file directly from our site.

Is this where one should post bug reports? Maghrib time for me was just reported as NaN:NaN for juristic preference Hanafi and calculation method ISNA. Otherwise it's a solid app.

Yes, we are aware of some bugs that depend on user's location. One of future versions of Qibla Compass will have reporting for incorrect prayer times.

Starting from version 2.3.4 Qibla Compass has a form for bug reports regarding prayer times.

@Anonymous
Which phone do you have and what is the exact application behavior?

I am using HTC desire. Just updated to android 2.2 yesterday. The app just displays distance not available. There is no movement of the needle. And also no prayer timings r displayed. When I try to send the report then lat/ long r displayed as 0's. I guess this much info should be enough to find the root cause :-)

Yes, it means that GPS location is not (yet) detected. If there is no clear sky visibility, enable determining location by wireless networks. That should help in urban areas.
