Lecker — Delicious recipes for every day

Lecker is a digital publisher brand for the best recipes, cooking and baking ideas.

The Challenge

Lecker contains of about 60.000 high quality food recipes. The former app had a lack in the overall navigation, the design was outdated and most critical: the iOS app downloads and the active users went down critical. The app therefore had to be redesigned urgently.


We worked with a team of four on a new solution. The product manager, an iOS developer, a brand manager and myself as the designer.

I was responsible for the new information architecture and the overall user experience as well as the visual design.

Problem Solving

One thing we heard through surveys from the user that a majority of them always wanted to save and collect their favorite recipes. Through that an idea of a new feature was born: The Cookbooks.

The user is now able to build a complete structure for different cookbook collections like starters, main dishes, desserts, etc. After gathering the first feedback we noticed that the users loved it.

Some results in numbers:

The session duration was doubled (source: Fabric)
Daily download rate increase by +50%
(source: iTunes Connect)
In just 30 days after relaunch 1450+ ratings, average 4.7 of 5.0
(source: Appstore)

German iOS appstore placement in the category food and drinks before approx. 50, after relaunch place 14
