Hello, developer of Chromatic here! This was my first official venture into the App Store as a main developer. I loved the idea of using colors to represent the times of the day. My influences came from other implementations of this idea, and after getting the main functionality working I focused on adding polish and extra features. Like Google integration so it would work for any city in the world, and a linear interpolation function for the colors so that the transitions were smooth and gentle. If you'd like to know more feel free to ask, or you can head over to the GitHub repo for the project since it is indeed open source! https://github.com/alexpersian/C...

@otymartin It took a fairly long time (6 months) because I was going to school at the time and would take breaks. The wonderful people over at iOS Developers Slack were incredibly helpful when I would run into road blocks.

What's the use of this app? Why should TIME be colored?
