Hijri-Cal (Islamic Calendar)
Checking out the time and date is very simple on any Windows powered computer since the operating system displays both of them in the lower right corner of the screen. For those who expect a bit more and want to get into details or manage events, calculate date differences and other such activities, many dedicated applications have been developed.
A special utility that handles the Hijri (Islamic) calendar and is able to provide some advanced features is Hijri-Cal (Islamic Calendar). With a simple and quite easy to use interface, the program is well suited for all types of users.
The main area of the GUI is reserved for the calendar, so the dates are clearly visible in both Hijri and Gregorian style. The program also marks the most important events in the calendar and when clicking a date that has such an event assigned, the details appear on the lower side of the interface.
A neat characteristic of Hijri-Cal (Islamic Calendar) is the ability to show a specific Hijri date selected by the user. From the 'Tools' menu this function is easily accessible and all one has to do is pick the year and month to have it loaded in the main window.
An interesting fact about this particular calendar is that the method it uses for data prediction is based on the moon phase data. This means that it should be more accurate than those relying on algorithms for the same predictions.
All things considered, given the uttermost simpleness of the program and thanks to the great ease of use, it's safe to say that for those looking for nothing more than an uncomplicated calendar, which can also remind them of important events, Hijri-Cal (Islamic Calendar) is one of the best choices.
