We’ve had a huge amount of requests to do the Android app again since it had stopped working on the newer Android versions.

Everybody should contribute bug reports about what does not work.

Changelog:

  1. Fix crashes
  2. Dedicated player
  3. Background Music
  4. New UI
  5. Playlists

Sikh Sangeet iPhone App updated for iOS 4

(We will update this with a link when App Store releases it publicly.)
Download link to the App Store (Remember to review it)

We’ve just submitted our iOS 4 update of the Sikh Sangeet App.  Sorry for taking so long in getting this out, but this whole iPhone app development process was not a particularly easy task. This was problematic because iOS4 SDK was not available for Mac OSX 10.5.8 Leopard, so we had to update our computer and development environment to Mac OSX 10.6.4 Snow Leopard, and go through a lot of other problems, like updating the Sikh Sangeet API, setup the new Mac, make code compatible with iOS 4, and do testing on a iPod Touch (iOS 4) device. Thank Waheguru we’re done.

The hold up is now in Apple’s hands. We’ve submitted the update, now Apple will probably take about a month to approve this application for the wider public.

    What’s New In Version 1.1

  1. iOS 4 support
  2. Selected song is shown below
  3. Bug-free Production Track API

Sikh Sangeet Android App

Download it from the Android Market (Remember to review it)

First, the Sikh Sangeet iPhone App, and now we bring you the Sikh Sangeet Android App. We wanted to bring Sikh Sangeet to the mobile platform with native functionality. That goal is slowly being achieved. Screenshots attached!

Our next mission will be to fix problems with the iPhone app. Please use the forum to report problems. Thanks.

Sikh Sangeet iPhone App

We’ve been working hard for a couple of months trying to take Sikh Sangeet to the next level. We wanted to bring Sikh Sangeet to the mobile platform with native functionality. First, we worked diligently trying to put up an API for Sikh Sangeet’s vast collection. Then the API was used to quickly come up with a Sikh Sangeet App for the iPhone. Screenshots attached!

This is only the beginning, we hope to do big stuff in the future. Keep it locked!

SikhGiving’s experience with Christian missionaries in Punjab

If we do not look out for our fellow Sikh brothers and sisters, the following stories (often told by my parents) will become more and more common.

SikhGiving, a small sikh charitable organization was helping a Sikh Patient Jaswinder Singh and his family to cope with their medical costs of approx. $500 a month. “At first we didn’t take up the case as we could not afford to support the case for a long period of 3 years”, said Vicky Singh, a volunteer of the California based non profit organization.

The family went to the point where Jaswinder’s dad, Sohan Singh had to sell his cycle in order to cover a day’s medicine cost. Somehow this news spread out in the public that a Sikh Organization is helping Sohan Singh’s family. After that, their local Christian group came with an offer to Sohan Singh’s family that they can cover his child’s entire medical expenses for 2 to 3 years. They were asked to visit the church to receive the money. Sohan Singh went to the Church feeling that he will be given the money as goodwill by the church.

When he went inside, he was taken by the church officials to attend a special ceremony which was to adopt Christianity as his religion. Sohan Singh and his family are from deeply religious Sikh background. He was given instructions by them that if they want to get the financial support then he has to follow the ceremony which indirectly was to leave Sikhism and adopt their religion. Sohan Singh left the church immediately after he found that in their instructions he was told to eat Parshad (religious offering) of Christ (which was meat).

With the generous help of many donors, we are glad that we took up the case of Jaswinder Singh for the next 3 years, providing them financial, physical and emotional help.

“I never thought that this would be happening to someone in Punjab who is in need of help. Instead of helping a needy person, they are making him to do something which he and his family doesn’t want to do. It was a direct hit at us showing that Sikhs in Punjab can’t help each other and others are lending hand to help them but with strings attached”, said Satnam Singh, the director of SikhGiving.
