Freshstew intro


Voice your opinion and share it across the web


Back in 2011, Freshstew was a startup idea by Mike Rowan, now a VP of R&D at SendGrid Labs. Freshstew was aimed at letting you voice your opinion and share it across the web, with the users recording and listening from their web or i-devices, rating opinions, and sharing with friends.

Railsware team helped shape the UI design of a soon-to-be web application based on the goals set for the product. Freshstew has never gone live eventually, but the graphics created are definitely worth sharing.
