Epicurious
Jan 2014

Developed for Windows Phone, this easy to use application enables users to browse hundreds of easy to cook recipes. Users can search for recipes by keyword, or choose from a list of common menu types and special occasions menus.


Visuals

  • The user interface is bright, high contrast, and well aligned with the Epicurious brand.
  • The application uses the native Segoe font, ensuring a clean, light, and open look.
  • Buttons and controls are large, easy to manipulate and follow the default Metro UI guidelines.
  • High quality photographs are used throughout the application.

Interaction

  • A persistent list of common menu types and special occasions is displayed on the application’s home screen.
  • Users can navigate between the app’s five primary panels using a swipe gesture.
  • Each panel contains a scrollable vertical list, containing text and image based layouts. Tapping many of these list elements leads to a recipe, and an additional series of views accessible using the pivot control.
  • The ingredients for each recipe can be added to a built-in shopping list by tapping an icon on the application bar.
  • Users can navigate back from all views using the dedicated hardware key.

Overall

  • Users can search for recipes by keyword, or pre-filter recipes by tapping icons representing a wide variety of ingredients, courses and cuisines. Search results can then be filtered by popularity, or sorted alphabetically.
