Design an app for Yumblebee, a start-up social network for foodies, that would garner attention among foodies and financial backing from investors. The app would mirror the feature set of the websites, meaning that the app needed to give users the ability to locate, rate, and review food items and dishes. In addition, the app needed to provide an activity feed of users.
Yumblebee is all about food, fun, and simplicity. Our objective was to capture that essence in the app by making it easy to use, compiling a database of menus and restaurants, and providing users with a fun interface to interact with other foodies. Users are able to search or browse for dishes and restaurants around them, keep up with other users' activity, and add dishes to a queue system to try or review later. Every dish and restaurant has a rating that has been populated by Yumblebee users. Rating items is as simple as selecting either Yum or Sting.
The app was well received by the client and was instrumental in garnering attention for the social network among investors and users alike.
