Description

This App is a simple day of the week calculator that just displays the day of the week of the date chosen from a date picker. Also, it has a function to test to see whether or not you have the so called ‘calendar calculating ability’.

How to Use

  • When you choose a date with the date picker (top of screen), the date and day of the week are displayed in the segmented control (bottom of screen).
  • If you tap the random button, a random date is displayed so please choose the day of the week you think is correct within the time limit. It answers with an animation and sound effect.
  • If you tap the reset button, the current date and day of the week are displayed.

Settings

  • You can change the calendar and region format in ‘Settings’ > ‘General’ > ‘International’.
  • You can change the volume of sound in ‘Settings’ > ‘W-Master’.
  • You can change the random dating range in ‘Settings’ > ‘W-Master’*.
  • You can change the time limit in ‘Settings’ > ‘W-Master’**.

* The dating range is displayed in number of years. The details of each number (in the Gregorian Calendar) are as follows: 2, 8, 40: Range around the current date. 200: Jan. 1, 1901 – Dec. 31, 2100. 800: Jan 1, 1601 – Dec. 31, 2400. 10000: Jan. 1, 1 – Dec. 31, 10000.

Creator’s Comment

This is a memorable application which I created first. As the result of my thought on what I had to do after the Earthquake, I decided to create an application, and then, spent a whole year to complete it. I encountered difficulties one after another because everything was all new to me, but a large part of anticipated problems such as the language barrier, technical requirements and complicated procedures was not very difficult to solve despite my anxiety partly because of the already well-established developing environment. I am also glad that I had an opportunity to experience the full workflow of development.

FAQ

Q: Is it not iPad-compatible?
No, it is not compatible with iPad, because iPad is not suitable for permanently displaying the date picker.
Q: Does it not work on portrait (vertical) mode?
The program is not designed to work on portrait mode, because the mode cannot secure enough space for segmented control.
Q: Up to how many days can I select with the date picker?
There are no specific limitations. It may depend on the specifications of the particular picker that comes as a standard UI. In my personal experiment, I was able to select from 1st January 1 to 31st December 10000, using the Gregorian calendar.
