Daily Medicine Reminder - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

Yes, I've worked in the Android app development industry for almost 5 years as a developer and have been running my own setup for more than 3 years. During my employment, I developed lots of apps for my employers and I am still developing apps for my Play Store accounts.

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

The most challenging aspect is and will be quality assurance to ensure users don't have any problem with my apps. I have to constantly test my apps on different API levels and devices for it, but still, there is always room for further improvement.

I hold a MS in Software Engineering from International Islamic University, Islamabad, Pakistan. After completing my education, I worked for 5 companies and then thought it better to utilize my experience in starting my own developer setup. I have been running this setup from home for the last 3 years. I don't have a proper office or any employees under me. I just hire graphic designers to design graphical resources for my apps. The rest of the work I do myself, from market analysis for new apps to uploading and marketing my apps on the Play Store.

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

All apps on my Play Store account are my favorite, as they're giving me too much in the form of knowledge and earnings.

How long have you been working on this app?

I've worked on this app for almost 2 weeks, and once an app is on the Play Store, we have to keep working for it.

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

I had the need of users to take their medication effectively and without any fiasco or forgetfulness.

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.

I think my app is better than other apps in the market, because it offers all the features for free, whilst most of the similar apps charge their users. I have it uploaded on multiple play stores like Google Play, Amazon and Bemobi which cover most of the android devices in the market. It might have more room for improvement but still, I'm proud of it because I'm helping my users without any motive for earning.

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

I have put everything I could think of in the app as best as I understand it. The rest of the decisions about the app, lie with my users.

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 expect my users to give proper feedback about this app, what further features they want in it, and if they like it, share this app with others as well.
