    Marley Spoon

    An outstanding app for anyone who enjoys cooking. Learn more

    Case
    The client had a business idea which revolved around the promotion of home cooking in Germany – a revolutionary concept of inspiring customers to cook at home by providing them with a recipe and delivering the required ingredients to their home places, thus removing all the effort from their shoulders apart from the pleasure of cooking and consuming.
    Solution
    A mobile application was like a perfect solution for a feasible tool for the customer niche to access our client’s service. A thorough concept of the application was already designed at the time when we were contacted – wireframes, graphical material and detailed requirements.

After that period, daily meetings were conducted online to inform the client about the progress and gather feedback or propose adequate implementation solutions. Notable technologies: REST API, PayPal, PayMill, Facebook
    Result
    The end-result is very successful - the client wishes to expand the market coverage to other nations with future iterations of the application.
