iStore Hours: Written and Video Android App Review
Concept and Functionality
As stated, the idea behind iStore Hours is pretty reasonable. The app serves as one of the world’s largest repositories of hours information, allowing users access to a vast databank of open and closing times, as well as addresses. Furthermore, it helps the user out by pegging their phone for geo-tagged location data. To sum it all up, an experience with iStore Hours might look something like this:
You want to know if the Chinese place down the street is open. As such, you boot up the app and take a look. Odds are you’ll find it on the dashboard ready to go. However, if you don’t see it, you can enter some simple search terms into the query bar to find it quicker. Each and every entry inside the app comes with an handy map if you get lost, as well as a full set of hours. If you find the store, but don’t find it within the app, you can also suggest a new location to the developers. You can do so by either entering the information yourself, or simply by snapping a photo of the hours sign and hucking it up onto the Internet. All in all, the app makes it blissfully simple to stay on top of when your favorite locations are open.
Design and Graphics
All in all, we suppose we can’t knock the way iStore Hours looks that much. We will say that we disagree with some of its more strongly pronounced aesthetic decisions, such as its vicious blue gradient. However, all of its features have been quite cleverly thought out and arranged, and the end result is an app that is quick to navigate and even quicker to use. We also greatly appreciated having a favorites panel and a full map to work with. All in all, iStore Hours may not be the prettiest app we’ve seen all year, but it will easily get the job done and deliver as promised.
And at the end of the day, iStore Hours is a completely free offering in the Google Play Store. This makes it a tremendous value, especially for the frequent social urbanite. If you need a quick utility to find out when that hopping sushi place is open, iStore Hours is easily your new best mate. And with no price tag attached, it’s just that much easier of a recommendation. Get it now!
