App to provide access to a huge catalog of enriching lectures about Islam.

IMO News Service

Islam On Demand, producer of original high-quality video content since 1995, successfully launched its long-anticipated iPhone app on July 9, 2013. The app provides instant access to a unique catalog of inspiring lectures by Hamza Yusuf, Suhaib Webb, Jamal Badawi, Jeffrey Lang and countless others. Now the video production company aspires to build the same mobile app for Android devices. To do this, they recently launched a Kickstarter.com project in an effort to raise the necessary funds to build it. Kickstarter is a way to fund creative projects through what is known as "crowd-source funding" in which a group of people contribute money to help a project meet its financial goals. Supporters can contribute a single dollar or thousands of dollars in exchange for rewards and the satisfaction of helping a project come to life.

Current data shows that the Android operating system is the top smartphone platform, controlling 52% of the market versus Apple's 38%. This fact combined with customer inquiries about an Android version of the app has compelled Islam On Demand to launch the Kickstarter project, which ends on August 16th at 11:10am. A spokesperson for Islam On Demand comments, "Developing the iPhone app was a tremendous honor and we're very pleased with the results. We're hopeful that our supporters will get behind the Kickstarter project so that our funding goal can be met and we can begin developing our educational app for the Android platform." But if 100% of the funds are not raised by the project's funding end date, development of the app would be suspended indefinitely. "If the project failed to raise the funds it would be a shame" the spokesperson said, "especially considering the wonderful feedback we've received from users of the iPhone app".

Reviews for the Islam On Demand iPhone app have been very positive thusfar: "I absolutely love this app. It has a variety of lectures and it's great if you're trying to get knowledge on Islam and everything pertaining to it. It's great for non-Muslims who might have unanswered questions as well." Another reviewer comments, "Highly recommend this app to get high quality videos and high quality information." And finally, "Rarely do you find such a vast aggregate of Islamic information and this one does it with an intuitive and well crafted user interface."
