Also each Ayah is provided with English Translation. There are total 3 tabs for each surah(page), Recite Surah, Maududi's Tafseer on Surah, and Surah Tafseer. The first tab is for Quran transliteration, translation and recitation. The second tab is for Maududi's tafseer on each surah and third tab is E.H. Palmer explanation of each surah.
Quran Transliteration means each quranic (arabic) word is converted in enlish letters which upon pronounciation sounds very similar to the arbic version. Arabic letters are very complex to read and understand and hence easy to make mistakes. That's why Quran was transliterated so people can read it better. Below is an example.
These are still arabic words but written in English letters to help non-arabic-speaking people to pronounce it better and make it sound like you are reading in arabic. We strongly recommends that everyone learn Arabic to read Quran properly and transliteration should not be the only way to read Quran. Transliteration helps to pronounce the arabic word better.

Maududi's translation and commentary on the Qur'an, "The
Meaning of the Qur'an", ranks as one of the best such works
in existence today. Unlike many early translators, Maududi uses
the standard technique of providing an explanation of the
Qur'anic verses from the Sunnah of the Prophet (sas), including
the historical reasons behind the verses. Below is a list of
Maududi's introductions to each chapter in the Qur'an.
Unfortunately, this represents a very small portion of the six
volumes which comprise the complete commentary.
The explanation is taken from book The Quran which
have two parts, Part 1 and 2.
