I teamed up with my wife who provided all the recipes and photos to create a cooking app for the iPad called Real Men Eat Veggies. It was designed to be a vegetarian recipe app for men.
Tools & Equipment Used
I developed the code on my macbook air using Xcode and wrote the app in Objective-C. I also used Core Data to store the recipes.
Overview of Work Performed
I worked with a graphic designer to come up with the design for the user interface. The basic functionality of the app included ingredients and recipe steps along with high-resolution photos, tips, and some recipes had video instruction. I added some gamification to the app by letting users amass an overall chef score so as they made more recipes their score would go up. I created a health index for each of the recipes based on their ingredients. I released the app to the app store and kept it in the store for over a year before pulling it from the store.
