Calc Fast - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

When I started developing Calc Fast I had been studying computer science for four years, and already had experience with Android development, web development, and backend development.

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

The most challenging aspect has been satisfying different users and age groups. I've tried my best to create a balanced game, but there is always someone who wants a harder or easier game.

Gaute Meek Olsen is 27 years old and a Norwegian developer. Currently, he is a consultant working with different projects. On his free time, he spends time developing mobile apps and writing developer blogs.

Name a few of your favorite apps and reason you love them.

Twitter - It makes it easy for me to keep updated with the developer community.
Google Photos - I like how easy they back up all my photos for free and has a web interface for when I'm using my computer.

How long have you been working on this app?

It took me maybe two months creating the app. But I'm always returning to it, for improvements and new features. So it's an ongoing project with varying amounts of work.

What need of the user did you have in mind when developing this app?

I wanted the players to have fun doing math. Always trying to improve themselves by thinking faster.

In what way do you think your app is better than similar apps on the market? Please describe in detail what innovation you think you bring and what you are proud of in your app.

Most of the math games I see provide you with some options; where you pick the correct answer between three alternatives. I wanted to create a game where the player needs to come up with the answer themselves.

What are your future plans and expected features of the coming new versions of this app?

I'm planning on adding a new level for the players who have reached a certain high score. With harder math equations, higher numbers, more than two numbers in the equation and square root. But this is still in the planning phase. Also, I'm going to develop Calc Fast for iOS. I'm not sure which task I'll do first.

Assuming new users of your app are reading this page. What do you want to ask them to do (contact you about X, Share the app, etc.)?

I just want you to have fun with the game. Maybe you can play it with someone you know and compete with each other. And always feel free to reach out to me at [email protected] if you have something on your heart.
