Daily Sunrise and Sunset Times - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

Yes. I coded my first website at the age of eight years already, and I really enjoyed it. Following, my school education had its main focus on IT and I now have a degree in computer science from the Graz University of Technology. Besides, lots of software projects were completed successfully.

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

The most challenging parts were the communication between the app and widgets, keeping these widgets up-to-date, and the permission system of Android when updating the location, for the exact sunrise and sunset times on the widgets, in the background.

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

I really like SUNNYTRACK [https://www.sunnytrack.app] because it is just great and useful for planning sun and shadows for photography, optimal real estate search, photovoltaics installation, garden planning, or outdoor activities; and because it is “my baby”, developed by myself as well ;-)
Furthermore, I really enjoy Sixpack in 30 Days, because it provides great exercises when you spend lots of time in front of your computer :-)

How long have you been working on this app?

There is always something to do, still. The time span from initial development until the initial release was about half a year.

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

Human beings need sun, we need daylight, we need our nature, we are part of it. Therefore, it is more than practical to know exact sunrise and sunset times (or see countdowns) in a very simple way by just looking at your home screen, without having to search the Internet, apps, …

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’m really proud of the great functionality, simplicity, and attractive design of the Sunnytimes Widgets (Daily Sunrise and Sunset Times). Also, instead of activating GPS, manual location mode can be used, and multiple cities can be added – all of them being wonderful ideas of the best users!

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

Updates are on the way. I will not share the secrets. Sunny times are coming.

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.)?

Please try the app, share it, and know the sun :-)
