Homebrewing iOS Application

Concept + UI/UX Design + Web/APi/iOS Development

The Idea

Nanolish is a home brew recipe app that lets users plan and construct their recipes using various brewing calculators well as get feedback from a community of homebrewers. Users can also discover other recipes, share their own recipes, create collections of favorite recipes, and comment and help others with their recipes.

The Result

Vital Dynamx’s role started with refreshing a previously put together static design that lacked a modern feel as well as had several missing user flows. After redesigning the app and thoroughly flushing out and correcting all user experience issues, we proceeded to build a Ruby on Rails backend web management system to monitor and manage the application as well as power all APIs. Currently iOS development is ongoing with a scheduled mid 2017 release.
