How it Started

The client intended to create an app that would give users recipes with what they had in the fridge that matched their diet. He started the development with another team. The first released version contained less than 500 recipes, had a large amount of crashing issues and was overall slow. Our team needed to refactor and re-write old code as well as integrate it with more robust tools.

Technical Solution

The app was developed using the this tech stack:

  • Objective-C
  • Auto Layout
  • Custom views
  • REST API
  • MVC

Development Work

The work was organized using the Agile development model and Scrum framework. We split the development into 2-week sprints with a presentation of the new features at the end of each stage. Unified QA team was assigned to the project from the very beginning. The client communicated with the team in Slack and Skype, we also used Git as a code repository.

Workload

The project was delivered with the following team:

  • 2 iOS developers
  • 1 QA engineer
