My Recipes Cookbook : RecetteTek - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

I have more than 8 years in development including 6 years for Android.

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

Propose an app that suits the greatest number of users while keeping it easy to use.

Julien Brandenberger is a JAVA/J2EE software engineer from France. In 2013 he has started Android development with a recipe app: RecetteTek.

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

Google Play Console. It's a very good tool to keep a good view of the activity of an app.

How long have you been working on this app?

I worked for 6 years for the Android version and 2 years for the iOS version.

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

To propose a user-friendly and simple application. Using a single app to cook and make it easy to find a recipe with filters. And that everything works offline. In addition, everything is stored on the device to keep even more control over personal data.

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.

The application respects the privacy of the users. No need to create an account to use it. Importing from a multitude of recipes websites makes it a big highlight of the app. There is no limitation on the number of recipes.

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

Currently, the app allows making shopping lists. An evolution will consist of having a pantry list. And be able to switch between lists easily.

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.)?

The application is developed through word of mouth, share the application to your friends because you are happy with its use. And do not hesitate to send emails to improve the app, I love feedbacks.
