Daylight (Timer)

Daylight IconDaylight (Timer) is an App that tracks the hours of daylight in a day.

The hours are displayed live on your home screen. So you can see the total hours without opening the App itself.In the App itself you’ll see precise time in hours & minutes, the sunrise & sunset time. But next to this also the current temperature and weather description.If you’ve got any suggestions, tips or questions… feel free to sent a mail to: support@myteryfiles.nl

Sneak Peek to Daylight

promo_phone1DaylightSo was working on a location based & aware App. The coding went good somedays and bad on other days. But guess that’s the life of an App Developer. You miss one line of code and everything literally breaks down.

NSLog is my new best friend a real life saver when it comes to ย error checking and application progress checker.

The other thing that’s weird for a non Developer, after weeks, months or more time coding something….you have to spent another additional time to think of ways that a user can break the App. Start the App and refusing to give location permission. Let the App run and put it in background, turn of internet access. Change time settings and other things. Really why… would someone do this. So any way I think Daylight is pretty robust now after all the error checking that I’ve done. It’s a good thing in the end I guess.

So what can I tell about Daylight? The name “Daylight” was taken in the AppStore… by the movie Daylight itself (which was kinda boring in my opinion. Vampires yeah!! Future & Vampires…bweehhh big no on that). So in the AppStore Daylight is submitted as –> Daylight Timer

And that name gives a lot away, doesn’t? Yep it tracks the daylight. More about it in a couple of days when it’s approved…or maybe not. Rejection still always a possibility.

Rules

Guess I’ve been away for a long long time. What can I say… I’m not really a blogger. Just updated 3 Apps on the site, not new apps but old ones that are already out on the AppStore but didn’t had an entry on the site. Hmm….bad. So site not really up to date then ๐Ÿ™

All that I can say MysteryFiles.nl is run by a one man team. I can’t do everything at once can I. Anyway currently I’ve some free time so hence these blog updates etc.

So what’s on my mind? Just uploaded a new app and now… a week nothing and waiting for approval. App approval is still long as ever…or one week…is reasonable in a way considering all the updates and new apps that Apple has to review and check.

But still sometimes really annoying. For example a couple of weeks ago I updated QuickFlip with gestures and IAP (do have to make money somewhere :|). After a week the App was live. Good…but when I checked the IAP. That wasn’t, this due to some weird error while the App was submitted the IAP wasn’t apparently. So had to submit another version of QuickFlip just for the IAP. A week later IAP rejected…WTF… turns out. A rule being “non consumables” needed a restore button. Oh dear…..resubmit again for just one button.

So the lesson I learned from this: rules are rules.AppStore rules are RULES to be followed otherwise a big red rejection sign.

QuickFlip

Icon-144QuickFlip is a simple and easy to use photo editing App with just one function: to reorient a photo.

This can be done with a simple gesture.

Swipe left or right and the photo will be mirrored.

Swipe up or down and the photo will be flipped.

Rotating the photo is also possible with the rotate button at the bottom of the screen.

Quick and simple. Nothing more and nothing less of course ๐Ÿ™‚

Best of all it’s a free app.
