Prayer time apps for Windows Phone 7 in the works

Non-Muslims may not know this, but there is nothing simple about the 5 per day prayer times that devout Muslims are obligated to perform, such that prayer time applications are a common feature of many phones and smartphones.

Those subject to these rules will therefore be happy to hear that their needs will be addressed on Windows Phone 7 also, with a functional application which also looks good, and makes use of such features as embedded Bing maps inside the application itself.

I do however wonder if the lack of a compass API will affect the ability to get directions from the phone itself, one of the few compelling uses of the hardware on the phone.
