iSharing: GPS Location Tracker - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

Yes, I started to code in C++ since freshmen year.

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

It’s difficult to have all location history correct. We could only do our best to provide the service from the location data we got from a wide variety of device conditions. However, it’s also the interesting part.

The interviewee, Yi-Ling-Lin, is a developer at iSharing Inc. iSharing is a free location-sharing app for your loved ones.

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

Of course, I use iSharing with my families. Since I am not living with them, it’s just feeling safer to know where each other is.
Personally, I really like Evernote. It’s really handy to keep notes of lectures /free write my pop-up ideas on it.
And for personal finance tracking, I like Toshl Finance a lot. The UI is cute and straightforward to use.

How long have you been working on this app?

It’s been one and a half year. Time flies.

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

The user needs to feel safe and comfortable using the app.

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.

Privacy setting feature:
In my opinion, tracking locations might sounds weird and could violate the privacy of others. With this concern, The user could set different privacy levels for each friend. They could either share the location freely, only share distance between them or just hide the location anytime.
Place alert:
We also have a cool feature called place alert. It’s similar to the clock of the Weasley from “Harry Potter”. Each clock hand represents one person. The clock hand moved from work to home when Mr.s Weasley got back from work. The place alerts could be set to each friend with different places. (i.e. home, school, work, etc.) Whenever the friend arrives at the place, the user will receive the notification! Actually, it’s quite a useful feature. Consider teenagers going to school alone, the parents could simply set the place alert of home and school that they will be notified when the kids arrived. (Probably need to have a better example for this or a more detailed version?)

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

Driving Report:
We launched our Driving Report feature, a highly requested addition to the app, this past Summer. Currently, it tracks the speed at which you drive, as well as certain dangerous events that occur during driving (phone use, high acceleration, sudden braking, etc.) The team is planning to add more functions to the Driving Report feature to further help young drivers drive more safely.
