The Apple Watch app opens to a rotating carousel of the five most recently published DayDayCook recipes. The recipe images slide up and down in a style mimicking the Wechat Moments Apple Watch interface, giving the app a more dynamic feel. One swipe to the right and the user can find a list of all of his or her favorite recipes. By clicking on a recipe, the user can enter into the recipe details segment of the app.
It's All About the Details
The recipe details section is similar to that of the main iPhone and iPad app, but scaled down to fit the small watch face. The largest challenge I faced in developing this app was scaling down all of the images and staying within the watch's memory restrictions which was an undocumented and rather gray area. The second largest challenge was dealing with the limited user interface elements and having to find creative methods to imitate scrollview features for the images on the homepage and the "pull to load more" table view element on the user favorites page.
