Eid al-Fitr is the celebration to mark the end of Ramadan and as with almost every event in your life these days, there are a range of apps developed promising to enhance your experience.

The three-day festival, commonly abbreviated to Eid, marks the end of the month-long fasting during Ramadan, which began on 18 June this year.

This year, Eid al-Fitr is expected to be on Friday, 17 July in the United Kingdom, depending on the sighting of the new moon.

Beginning with morning prayer, Eid will see Muslims who have been fasting for the last month feasting and celebrating with family and friends as well as exchanging gifts.

So to help you celebrate, here are a selection of apps for your iPhone, iPad, Android smartphones and tablets:

Eid Greetings (iTunes)

This iOS app offers you an easy way to send messages to your family and friends with exclusively designed Eid cards in categories including Islamic, family, friends, company, funny and Arabic.

You can write a customised message on the cards and share them via email, Facebook, Twitter and Google+.
