Yummi

Yummi is a mobile app that is specially created to help users store their best food memories.

About the Project

Yummi is a mobile app that is specially created to help users store their best food memories. It is a platform where you can share your eating experiences, discover different meals, and log food images to never forget the fine cuisine you’ve tasted. In addition, users can build their network and follow friends’ recommendations while choosing where to go and what to eat.

Challenge

The client contacted MLSDev with an idea to create an application that could become a food diary where users could post photos of meals, discover new tasty food, find new interesting places to eat, and store their food memories. It was supposed to be an iOS app.

Solution

As the client already had UX wireframes, we started creating Yummi with UI design. It never ended even when the project was being developed because the client constantly added new features that required design.

Although the backlog with features was initially created the client decided to follow a completely agile process where he prioritized the features already listed and added new functionality. The work was planned two weeks ahead.

MLSDev team constantly shared their opinion on the new tasks and the client took them into account. That was an interesting experience because the backlog and the detailed were not the limits.

Results

Yummi development took more time than initially planned but MLSDev team actually created the backlog features faster and managed to build many more features during this time. The client was satisfied with the work.

When the client received feedback from users after the app’s release, our team continued working on the product to improve it and add more features while the client was busy with the marketing campaign.

Later on, we also created the Android app for Yummi.
