What an oddly specific user need to fill!
As a runner, I love to know how much time I have to squeeze in a run before the sun goes down. The darkness of the winter can be kind of depressing.
Edit: It's unfortunate though that there's no option to turn off military time. I don't want to have to think about what time 17:34 is.
Copy writing is missing something. "2 more minutes of daylight today. Just let it sink in..." 2 more minutes than yesterday? Than average? At first I even thought it was broken bc "2 more minutes of daylight today" at 9 am made me think, well, that it was broken.
Yeah, 2 more minutes total than yesterday. I think with any amount of thought, users know what it means. I think to keep on brand, the language is fine.
why not show it as a point on the curve to give indication of the trend?
This link is getting passed around lately like it is new, but this wasn't just launched. It came out back in December: https://medium.com/bakken-bæck/let-there-be-daylight-2fc3a8448ea#.wotaadahl
iPhone version was finally launched very recently, is the difference :P
Link to the app's website: https://daylight.today/
http://whencomesthesun.com/ I use this for the job. Simple, more informative, and double as a world clock.
does it give you notifications about how many more minutes longer today is than yesterday?
this has been out for a while; I remember seeing a DN post when they released the beta. They finally released it for iPhone and it's really awesome in that it's dead simple and pretty.
Sort of a tangent, but this seems like the sort of limited scope project that React Native was built for, so I'm kind of disappointed that they didn't go down that route.
