Instant - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

Yes I did, from college. I built a team to help me execute this app.

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

Designing it in such way that there isn't information overload, yet it would work automatically and seamlessly.

Shashwat is the founder of Emberify. He has been building mobile products since the past 5 years. He also works with companies like BlackBerry & Huawei as an influencer.

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

Twitter and Instagram are my favorites because of the great content they have!

How long have you been working on this app?

For 4 years.

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

To help users improve their health and productivity in today's busy world. Especially when finding a work-life balance has become so difficult.

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.

Instant works automatically and doesn't need any manual input. Other apps need some other apps for data, wearables or manual input.

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

We are integrating more data sources in the app.
