What started as a learning exercise turned into a fully functional iOS app with a dedicated, active and passionate user base.
In late 2013, I decided to learn iOS development through online tutorials. Building a recipe manager seemed like a good idea since it presents some challenges in terms of the interface and also requires non-trivial data persistence. Learning about the iOS SDK has led to a deeper appreciation of object-oriented programming and I am able to translate those concepts to other designs as well.
Chefly is a simple and elegant cookbook packed with convenient tools and features such as a meal planner, culinary glossary, unit converter and a shopping list. Since its launch in 2015, Chefly has been downloaded thousands of times across multiple countries.
