Hi, I’m Monty Harper. I’m an iOS developer. I learned Swift in order to make a calendar app for my mom, who struggles with time due to her temporal lobe epilepsy. I built the app around a unique UI that helps her visualize “now” in relation to upcoming events.
I love developing a great user experience, so I strive to create apps that are helpful, robust, and easy to work with.
I'm writing about my iOS learning journey on Dev.to.
Featured App: "TARDIS" Calendar
I designed this calendar for my mom, whose cognitive impairment makes her struggle with time. Her caregivers love it, and she does not like to be without it!
- Events are presented linearly in relation to “Now.”
- Event icons indicate the type of each event.
- Background color gradients indicate daylight, nighttime, sunrise, and sunset.
- Caregivers can easily add and edit events from their own devices.
- Built using SwiftUI, EventKit, CoreData, UserDefaults, JSON, and RESTful API.
- Custom one-finger zoom gesture makes it easy for those who struggle with the “pinch.”
- Custom MarqueeView presents current information as scrolling text.
- Custom HorizontalLayout allows for dynamic display of time marker labels.
