 Feature Requests


  • Add a “Today” screen to show you what you need to do: hours, calls you scheduled, time you scheduled, a way to quickly add a call. This today screen should only show up when you open MyTime™ the first time that day, otherwise it will open the last tab you had.
  • Slideover support
  • Save call information or anything for that matter when a call comes in or the iphone requests that you close the application
  • Make a DOS/windows version of the backup program (most likely this will not happen because of the mytime webserver MyTime™->More->Settings->Start MyTime™ Webserver)
  • Add a view like the hours view to help keep track of mileage (currently you can use TripCubby for this on the AppStore)
  • Add some indication in the mytimebackup that the filetransfer completed (it does indicate this on the iphone when restoring a backup and when retrieving a backup you get the indication by saving the file)
  • Add some family study time keeper information so that you can keep up with the weekly studies with your children and the weekly 1 hour and 1 return visit you can count
