DoFasting - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

No. The founder of DoFasting - Christine Ellis is just a nutritionist. A skilled one, but that doesn't magically grant her the superpower of coding. So to create the DoFasting app, she partnered with a team of coders and made her dream of creating a professional fasting app a reality.

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

Christine was one of the countries top nutritionists, but she did not have any prior experience of managing a team of people working to create an app. It was hard in the beginning. But in the end, the positive feedback from the community of our fasters makes it all worth it. The main goal, both the developers and Christine agreed, was to create an app that even a person without any prior knowledge about intermittent fasting could use but is still useful even to experienced fasters. That's why the app is so user-friendly, but at the same time full of utility.

Name a few of your favorite apps and reason you love them.

Productivity apps are what I appreciate the most. Here are two of my favorite ones. Google Drive - access to work files even on the go. Saved numerous presentations by allowing to make last-minute changes. My second favorite is Slack. Communication between colleagues was way different back when Slack wasn't around. Does anyone remember those times?

How long have you been working on this app?

The app launched in June, but we've been working on it for the better part of the year before, even.

What need of the user did you have in mind when developing this app?

There are two things holding back people from doing intermittent fasting. That's the lack of knowledge and the abundance of misconceptions. The DoFasting app was made to fight the misconceptions and show people that intermittent fasting can be done by almost anyone.

In what way do you think your app is better than similar apps on the market? Please describe in detail what innovation you think you bring and what you are proud of in your app.

In short, without the complicated lingo: It brings the latest nutritional and fasting research to the public. All the meal and exercise plans are constantly being reviewed by Christine so that it's up to date, and we're constantly adding new fasting types. It receives major updates frequently, and our team is doing a really good job of keeping up with the industry trends.

What are your future plans and expected features of the coming new versions of this app?

It's a secret, but we're planning on doing a major design and interface overhaul in the near future, it's almost ready! A new way to interact with meals, brand new workouts, new fasting types, and much more!

Assuming new users of your app are reading this page. What do you want to ask them to do (contact you about X, Share the app, etc.)?

If you like the app, make sure to spread the knowledge with your friends. And remember that if you ever have any questions or suggestions, make sure to contact us at [email protected]!
