Wine in Black

Wine in Black's iOS App is a native Swift app and one of europe's most successfull wine selling apps, available in Austria, France, Germany, Netherlands and Switzerland.

When opening the app, the initial screen shows the latest campaigns and recently viewed products. Furthermore, users have the option to check latest deals and browse the catalog by different attributes such as wine type, grape, country or region. A profile section is the entry point for everything account related and chronologically displays previous orders. Lastly, the cart is the first step of the two step checkout.

Due to the fact that Wine in Black is a curated shop with a limited, constantly changing assortment, the app stores all active products on the device and synchs with the server on startup so that all interactions with products such as browse, search or filter are instant and do not require a network connection.

Besides working on the iOS app, another big part of the job was to build a new REST API. This was necessary, because the existing shop system was being replaced with a new one during the project.

Features / Scope

Foyer app icon


Foyer puts an end on the hidden existence of the countless pictures we all have on our smartphones. It enables the user to combine text and pictures into a story and the layout algorithm takes care that stories look unique and good on any device. An integrated image editor provides an easy way to get the most out of the pictures and social features such as share, like and comment make sure, that stories get the attention they deserve.
The social feed channelizes the stories created or shared by followed users and the discover section in the app exposes stories of users from outside the users network.

Foyer actually started out of my bachelor thesis at university of applied sciences HTW Berlin and I continued to work on it as a R&D project.
