Our client came to us with a vision for a feature-rich recipe app but with no means to create their web platform with all its complex features. To meet the service's intended purpose and gain traction with a user base, uploading and importing recipes, managing shopping lists, and implementing social features were necessary and challenging to implement. The platform required users to be able to customize their accounts, follow other user accounts, create and share shopping lists, use a native calendar, multiply recipe ingredients according to portion sizes, and fill forms to upload their own recipes. Recimee’s mission to make cooking at home simple and enjoyable was straightforward, but the network of interconnected features the platform needed was more involved.
Using Recimee's feature wishlist as a guide, we systematically built every feature the platform needed to offer the easy, convenient user experience that the client had imagined. While designing the platform, tying together different elements was a challenge that ultimately resulted in its most convenient features. In our research, we discovered that user shopping lists should be shared among family members so that anyone who goes shopping for groceries for the next family meal can find the ingredients.
With SilverLogic's trademark solution architecture and software consulting, we provide this level of polished functionality. A sleek and friendly user experience is offered by the Recimee platform we developed, and you can now access it on their website. The platform offers users the option of creating their own profiles and customizing them, browsing curated recipes for addition to their Kitchens, uploading and categorizing their own recipes, adding meals to their personal calendar, creating shopping lists based on their meal selections, and sharing these shopping lists with others. In addition, users can convert recipes from other established websites into shopping lists, or choose from the curated selection of meals on Recimee. There are all the tools users need to feel inspired and organized while cooking something new. While it appears simple, the web application is packed with interconnected functionality for convenient everyday use.
As part of our integration efforts, we enabled Recimee to access other web resources, such as recipes from established sources. Our web platform makes it easy to create a shopping list based on an online recipe by pasting a URL. You can even share this shopping list with family members to ensure that whoever goes shopping knows what ingredients to pick up for the weekend's dinner. For the most convenient and intuitive user experience, Recimee seamlessly flows recipes and menus across the platform, regardless of whether they are found online, on the curated Recimee menu, or from family members.
