Founded in 2009, Yummly is the leading innovator in recipe search and discovery. The company applies proprietary technology to understand food and taste built upon mapping the food genome. Yummly leverages this technology to build an unparalleled user experience with features such as personalized recommendations, semantic and contextual search, and a smart shopping list. Over 15 million monthly unique visitors turn to Yummly for recipes and inspiration.

Gemini Solutions deployed a team of experts dedicated to building a native Yummly app for the iPhone. Collaboratively, Yummly and Gemini Solutions addressed the many challenges associated with building a highly customized mobile app that delivers sophisticated animations and parallax images at very high speed. The successful partnership that built the iPhone app continued with development of apps for the iPad and Android devices.

The Results: #1 Mobile Recipe Apps for iPhone, iPad, and Android!
The Yummly app for iPhone was released in September 2013 and quickly ascended to become the top iPhone recipe app. The iPad app followed in March 2014, and the Yummly app for Android was released in November 2014. Today, all versions of the Yummly app are ranked first among recipe apps and have reinforced Yummly’s leadership position in food-related technology. As of December 2014, Yummly’s mobile apps have been installed over eight million times worldwide.

We have invited senior executives from Yummly to share with the local community of software developers the tech & business story behind this innovative mobile recipe app.
