||Hajj is an annual pilgrimage carried out by muslims, whereby pilgrims visit the holy land of Mecca.
Currently, upon being selected by the Tabung Haji Institution, pilgrims would attend a brief course on the
procedures of Hajj prior to their trip. However, it is fairly common that these pilgrims, especially first timers
to be overwhelmed by the inordinate amount of information that needs to be taken in. The current solution
is generally though the provision of notes or booklets to carry about, which is highly cumbersome and
inefficient. Here, we have develop and app that supplies pilgrims with the bare minimum of information, in
an organized, easy-to-access format. The app was developed using Android Studio v2.3.2 and JAVA.
Design elements were constructed using Adobe Photoshop. The coding coding was done following tge
completion of app framework encompassing the fundamentals of Hajj and its pillars, Ihram, Wukuf, Tawaf,
Saie and Tahallul. The MyHaji app compresses the rulesets of Hajj and provides a diagram of the
pilgrimage, allowing pilgrims to better keep track of their journey. At the same time, the app controls the
amount and order of information being displayed at a time, thus avoiding users from being overwhelmed.
In addition, a virtual information repository in app form is much more convenient compared to traditional
approaches. As pilgrims tend to carry their smartphones at all times, it eliminates the need for them to
carry any extra resources during their pilgrimage, which further emphasizes its convenience.
