The perfect app to keep track of the open and closing times of your local stores and restaurants. This comes in handy especially for the not so often visited store. Need to run out and get milk or bread, but forgot how early or late the store opens? Need to pickup a card or lottery tickets on the way home but forgot if the shop near home is still open? How about making it in time for breakfast or lunch menu at your local fast food joint or favorite restaurant. Yes to all the above, which is why this handy app was created.
You simply type in the store or restaurant name and select the hours of business sun thru sat. Set it once and fuhgeddaboudit, until you need to refer to it.
Thru research found not all popular retail shops or restaurants carry the same hours, making it impossible to provide accurate selections pre-populated. If you need an app to retrieve the hours of every shop nationwide for you, good luck.
First two columns are for open/close times for stores or restaurants, and the last two columns are for restaurants breakfast and lunch times. Example, breakfast would normally start same as opening time, so you would enter the breakfast ending time, that way you know when breakfast menu is over. Same example for lunch ending time, that's when dinner menu starts. With these four entries you can figure out whether you can still make it for breakfast at your local fast food joint when you get up late, I always screw that up on the weekends.
Next to Monday there is a down arrow which will auto populate your Monday entry down through Friday. You can certainly make any individual adjustments as needed.
The home screen not only displays the list of stores and restaurants but also shows the open/close hours for the current day for each listing.
The app has been well tested and used daily, works without issues on the iPhone 3G and up. (No data service needed). Also rest assured that your data is preserved with new updates. Ability to transfer data to a buddy in development.
This app has come in very handy, hopefully others find it useful as well.
-Adjusted time format to save properly for Regions using 24hr time format. (If your Region setting is US, will use 12hr format, others such as UK will use 24hr)
-To limit buttons/keystrokes, Initially selecting a textfield will show "Closed" value. If the store is closed for that day simply set the first textfield to Closed. The time picker is still visible, simply select the time values if the store is open that day.
