Take your Agnihotra timings with you wherever you go. iAgnihotra calculates the exact time of sunrise and sunset using your built in GPS, Internet connection or an offline worldwide city listing. If you are outdoors use it in GPS mode for perfect astronomical sunrise and sunset timings. If you are online it will detect your location from your Internet connection or if you want to check the time for a friend just type the name of their location. It also has a training mode to teach you the Agnihotra mantras as well as Mahamrtyunjaya mantra which is profoundly healing to perform at any time.
Agnihotra is a profoundly healing daily practice that has been performed for thousands of years in India to purify the atmosphere. It is done at the exact transition from day to night or night to day, astronomically this is when the midpoint of the sun has reached the horizon. The Rishis or sages of India observed that at this exact time an immense amount of natural energy is present in the atmosphere and hence by performing Agnihotra at this time, the effects are immensely healing for those performing and all around.
Using it for years now and daily I have to downgrade from my three stars rating from 2015.1 - Agnihotra times: Often wrong by one or two houres. The main purpose of this app is to give correct times. And it fails. Even more so when „Daylight Saving“ is selected. Sorry - when daylight saving is active - and quite correctly so - it does definitely give wrong times. What?However, sometimes either are wrong, with and without daylight saving selected. Get your act together! This switch is not needed as every iPhone knows its timezone and sunrise and sunset times accordingly. What is the problem here? I know that Agnihotra times are calculated differently but thats just silly. 2 - Screen: Did you hear about the notch on iPhones? I mean its not new but the latest version still has menus under the notch which are thus not useable; most prominently in the Location screen. this bug renders the complete location screen useless. Also others. 3 - UI: What is the Month View good for? When a day is tapped, the app returns to the main screen. Thus doing exactly what the day menu on the home screen does. It is redundant. 4 - iOS integration: No export to calendar, no export of times to printer (for times without the beloved phones), no home screen widget, no standard alarms selectable (and alarms menu is buggy). Alarms only play when iAgnihotra is the active app. This is such an important app as agnihotra is so important to the world. There is much room for improvement. Please consider my hints. All the best.
