Drivers hours app offering you best scenario suggestions.

From the Blog


We have finally got to the final testing stage for the Ask Simon app for the UK truck timer app that does so much more.  It’s this ‘so much more’ that has caused the delays with the release of the app’.  We needed to make sure that it is 100% before we send it out to a very critical market place – the UK truck driver.  The additional functions that do so much calculating with the scenarios that the app offers, has needed testing and feedback from an initial 10 testers.  This has been increased to a new batch of 10, so we have 20 testers at the moment, testing the app before we submit to iTunes.

Screen shot for Ask Simon Drivers Hours ToolWe can’t thank the people that have submitted the feedback to us, as this is invaluable for final delivery of the product.  Some have offered support and then not downloaded the app’ and this is a shame as we needed the support of everyone, that may have an input or influence to help us.  We really do appreciate all the support that the testers are giving us and we will be mentioning them on the credits of the app’.

We have made the submission of faults and suggestions easier with the development version;  We have added a temporary “Submit Feedback” button on the app’s home screen, so that faults and suggestions can be fed back when the driver finds them (and has stopped driving of course)

The developers have been struggling with the mapping function as this drains the battery, but we have moved to an alternative method and hoped this helps with the battery life issue.  Again, feedback has been invaluable with this.

So, look out for the development news on this blog or sign up to know when this is out on iTunes for your iPhone here or contact us for more information here and yes – we are getting excited!



Those of you that follow the Facebook and Twitter accounts will have seen our recent posts including -

“OK, we are excited and I did run around the office and out of the door (not with my shirt over my head as it’s cold). We have the screen shots for the app here in the office (yes, all over the walls for interrogation) and the developers have asked for my iPhone’s unique i.d. to send me a test version of the app very soon. Hold tight, it’s on it’s way and sorry for the delay. We are well on to delivering the iPhone app for the haulage industry that will pay for itself in the first week of use!”

The iPhone app developer account screenSo as you can see from the image here, we have the app on test on our iPhones and we are setting out our thoughts and early development changes for the app.  It’s looking very crisp and clear and exactly what Andy designed and had planned for the app with some extra features added by the developers.

I’m not sure who the fella with the googles is but it was the account we needed to sign up to, so that we can download the app before it is released to iTunes.

We have been asked for our feedback and thoughts on the flow and mechanics for the developers to make the first release for testing in March 2013.


We are sorry for the delay and promise this app will pay for itself in the first week of use!

Thanks for waiting and we are working very hard on this – We promise!  Follow us on Facebook or Twitter for more news as we are aware of it.
