I’m about to embark on a long and exciting journey similar to the iTunes project where I will recreate a cooking application from ground up (using SilverLight 1.1).
I’m going to base my application from a screen shot of a cool looking cooking application that I came across on my web travels.
There is a cool mac site that has a competition where people submit ideas for there dream application MyDreamApp. Over the course of a couple of months (on a weekly basis) the community votes on each application, and every couple of weeks the application with the least votes is eliminated. It’s a brilliant concept and it’s just cool to see how each application evolves over the 3 months. (I’m addicted to this site and the survivor concept)
This screen shot is of a cooking application that won the previous competition. It’s been sitting in limbo waiting for the assigned development team to build it. It’s taken so long for the developers to deliver anything that I’ve decided to build it myself in SilverLight.
I’m going to spend the next couple of post’s getting feedback from all of you on the screen shots, PLEASE PLEASE send through your comments on what you would love to see in this application.
Figure 1: Mockup of the main screen of the cooking application
Next posting will be about the first set of screens for this application. I’ll mockup the screens based on the above design in Photoshop. Your feedback on the design of the screens and the features to build into the application will be invaluable, so please don’t be afraid to voice up!
This is going to be one cool looking cooking app!
By the way I’m going to call this application “MasterCHEF” 🙂
PS. All my other projects will not be neglected, I will continue to post to them as time permits! (And I try to make a lot of time available to my SilverLight passion)
