Xpert-Timer Mobile - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

I had prior coding experience as I developed Xpert-Timer for Windows using Delphi programming language but developing on Android was new for me.

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

Xpert-Timer Mobile synchronizes the data with the database of Xpert-Timer Pro for Windows. I would say this was the hardest part to realize.

The Interviewee, Andreas Spang, has been a developer since 1996.
He is the developer of apps such as BackupXpress, IconXpert, Xecutor, Xpert-Timer Pro/Basic, and Xpert-Timer Mobile.

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

Slack: It's a great tool to stay in touch with other developers.
K9: the email app I use instead of the standard email app
Honestly: I hardly use apps on the mobile. I am more the PC type of person.

How long have you been working on this app?

The development took approximately one year. It has been listed on GooglePlay since 2011.

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

Being on the road, working for a client requires exact time tracking. Instead of writing down the worktime on a sheet of paper, it's much easier to hit a start/stop button in the app. Your clients can then sign the time they are paying for on a PDF report. If your clients know what you are billing for, it reduces the cases of complaints. Additionally you can synchronize the data immediately to the main office, so they can go ahead and immediately create the invoice for the task.

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.

Once you try Xpert-Timer, you will love it! You can use Xpert-Timer Mobile even if you don't have an internet connection. Especially when working in remote areas, this is very helpful. We tried to keep the user interface as simple as possible and this is what you will love. Simple, but still really a lot of options to manage your tasks, clients and projects.

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

We are planning on adding a simple worktime option in the app. You can then synchronize your worktimes with Xpert-Timer Pro for Windows. Therefore your employer would get your worktime stamps, even if you are on the road or working from your homeoffice.

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.)?

You can contact us at any time through email: [email protected].

There's also a great manual for the app: http://manualmobile.xperttimer.com/

Please share the app if you like it and rate it in GooglePlay. There's also a trial version you can download in the GooglePlay store to test before you buy.

Use the reporting options to identify time wasters or print the report for your clients. When a project is completed, generate the report and get it signed on site with the In-App "Signature module", or send it to your client through email.

Xpert-Timer Time Tracker is a standalone app for your Android mobile device and does not rely on an internet connection. This makes the product perfect for tracking your working hours or time spent on tasks wherever you are.

You can create to-dos, sub projects/tasks, main projects/tasks and link them to a client. Additionally you can add comments to every timestamp and have Xpert-Timer Time Tracker calculate the costs by setting an hourly rate for the project/task. This hourly rate may vary for each project.

Xpert-Timer can also create and scan barcodes/QR-codes. Create a QR-Code in the project settings, stick it on your machine or file and simply start tracking time by scanning it. Perfect, if you need to switch back and forth between projects.
