There’s plenty of gourmand apps. Is it possible at all to succeed in branch led by Yelp, Foursquare, Restu and Zomato? Our customer was confident that it is. You see, they had an innovative idea, how to conceive such net. Search for a restaurant? Add a review? - These are very common functions. With Don Appetit restaurants would be able to share news with their regular guests. It was our turn to test this idea. And the best tests take place on the battlefield.

Solution
Our Solution
We created a MVP to examine viability of the idea. Before our job, Don Appetit already had a web app, but it lacked relevant user content. And without content there’s no life on the social net. For users it’s far too complicated to upload images from PC or add reviews subsequently. For these actions mobile app is much smarter. Before we even started with job itself, we thoroughly analyzed the problem and scratched out all less important functions. We formed MVP app focused on content creation. Everything unrelated to this setting went aside. The app was being developed agilely. Clickable wireframes, created in Balsamiq, were straightly tested by a group of users. We received information about behaviour of prototype even sooner, than we started to create design or wrote a single line of code in Android Kotlin and iOS Swift 4. And also thanks to this native apps for both Android and iOS were done only in four months.
Result
Result
To our customer in very short time we delivered a mobile app focused on content creation which would be able to link restaurant owners and users who regularly add their reviews. By data on the app behaviour we are able to start extending the original concept by eg. interaction among users, blog containing quality restaurants review, and other elements of social net. To us, Don Appetit became a synonym for agile software development. During the process we became more efficient and also much better reflected customer’s requests and their feedback and flexibly adapt to them.
