Meet fumi - The feed app for horses

Hi everyone,

It was a long journey that took me a little over a year to develop fumi - the feed app.

I learned an extreme amount during that time. About APIs, endpoint security, databases and app building. The app itself was rebuilt and tested around 5 times from scratch - be it with different backends (Adalo, Airtable & final: Xano), new designs and user interaction options or simply with changed user flow and optimized database structures - and all this alongside my normal job and private life. An incredible experience.
But besides the self-study I just have to say clearly: Without the really strong community here (and tagging all of them would be just too much), the many questions and problems you can look up, discuss and address together is an incredibly great support. I really don’t know if I would have made it this far without this great community. THANKS TO ALL OF YOU!!!

So now to the fun part: Introducing fumi

What is fumi?
Become a feed expert for your horse
Have you ever wondered if you are really feeding your horse everything it needs? Feeding according to needs is often underestimated. Yet it can influence so many areas of our horses’ lives. From health, to performance, to general well-being. How would it be if you yourself could adjust the feeding optimally and always individually to your horse? fumi makes exactly that possible!

Currently the app is designed for the german market but after launch, we are planing to expand to countries like UK and the US (different food regulations so we have to take time here)

Wow - congrats - that is an amazing project. Looking back now - do you see a way you could have started with a smaller section of the project and got it released earlier to get users, feedback and traction while building out the other areas of the app?
