iPad Application Design – Pixelube’s First!
A couple years ago we had the pleasure of meeting and working with the folks over at BigOven. We collaborated to create the new brand and web site for BigOven.com. Since then the site has grown by leaps and bounds. They’ve launched a variety of new features, released an iPhone app and over the weekend BigOven debuted its new iPad application.
I have yet to purchase an iPad but it has been a true pleasure to work on the UI design for BigOven’s application. Due to a dedicated team made up of a handful of super-smart folks, we were lucky enough to be one of the featured apps in the iPad store upon this weekend’s debut.
The BigOven iPad application has a variety of great features. The app taps into BigOven’s database of over 170,000 plus recipes contributed by a gamut of users ranging from the novice to the professional chef. Users are empowered to:
- Look up any recipe or post your own, free, to BigOven.com
- Create grocery lists from recipes
- Sync grocery lists via the web, iPhone and or Android
- Post and organize your own recipes via BigOven.com
- Post and read user-generated recipe reviews
- View and post photos and much more…
We try not to toot our horns much over here but felt compelled to quote our big BigOven client:
“Vince, I’m such a fan of the clean, crisp look you’ve created, from the logo itself to the colors, and the brand signature that you created just rules the roost. The graphic design of this app makes it really something special. ~Steve Murch”
All of the hype wrapped around the new iPad has been interesting, to say the least. Especially interesting are the variety of press and reviews wrapped around our application. They started to trickle in last Monday. If you’re interested, you can see a few of them here:
