CorkRules is an innovative wine discovery and recommendation app for people who love sharing their experiences with their friends. This project made for android and IOS users gave us a chance to work on a unique concept and advanced features that cater to wine enthusiasts.
The client approached us with the idea of developing a wine discovery app that lets them use advanced search filters to get recommendations based on their preferences. Not only this, but the client also wanted a social media-like interface that would allow users to connect with other wine lovers and share their experiences.
The idea was powerful, and our team was excited to work on it. We began by conducting extensive research on the wine industry, identifying popular wine types, and building a comprehensive database of wine bars and restaurants. We also developed advanced search filters, allowing users to find the perfect wine based on their taste, origin, distance, price, and rating.
CorkRules is a robust wine discovery and recommendation app designed for iOS and Android users. CorkRules was struggling with the location feature. When the current user location did not match any restaurant locations, the app would display a "Get Me My Recommendation." screen. And when the user's location matched a restaurant location, the app displayed the "List view" screen.
We researched by reviewing the client's vision and existing wine apps in the market.
To solve this challenge, we worked on a solution that directed users to a "Location" screen, which displayed two options - "Yes get me my Recommendation" and "No Change Location" - if a restaurant was within the radius of the user's current location.
This allowed users to quickly and easily find nearby recommendations.
CorkRules also needed a lot of advanced functionalities, including code verification, sign-up, and a home list view screen. Some of these would include
The client wanted to build a solution that can help wine lovers in every way so that they do not have to depend on multiple apps. We took the complete specification from the client as to what his vision was and reviewed all the existing wine apps in the market. We then created a detailed statement of work (SOW) for the project with all the essential features that matched the client's vision.
The app focussing wine lovers who love sharing thier experience with thier friends, so the features and theme had to be fun and easy.
We also worked on creating the design wireframes of the application, which helped the client to better visualize the application UI and UX flow. This approach helped us understand the challenge in detail and deliver a mobile app solution that met the client's requirements.
CorkRules implemented a solution that directed users to a "Location" screen. If a restaurant was within the radius of the user's current location, the screen displayed two options: "Yes get me my Recommendation" and "No Change Location." This allowed users to quickly and easily find nearby recommendations.
To enable users to post photos, videos, and comments, CorkRules implemented a "Create Post" feature. Users could upload photos and videos from their device's gallery or camera, add captions and tags, and share their posts with their friends or the public.
CorkRules is available on iOS and Android devices, as well as through a website and an admin panel.
