Islamic iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch Apps

Apple's portable devices (iPod Touch, iPhone, and now the iPad) allow users to download games, ebook readers, music, video, and other useful and entertaining "apps" (applications).  You can also use your iPad, iPhone, or iPod Touch to enrich your life as a Muslim.  These Islamic apps are useful for reading Qur'an, calculating prayer times, and even finding halal food.  You can download these apps from the App Store in iTunes.
