Eat Street went through a TON of revisions, aesthetically and functionality-wise. It went through several names as well before settling on Eat St., then Eat Street (because having a ‘.’ in an app name does not work and the shorthand ‘st’ looks strange).
To see my basis work for the app, see my web design posts.
New sketches for the app:
In this re-work, I focused on ease of functionality. I added features that made the app easier and were more appealing to the eye. I made sure that the user could sort things easily and effectively, just like in Yelp, Open Table, and Zomato. I also did not want the features to come across as too much so I narrowed everything down. In our critique, however, I think people got overwhelmed by how many screens there were, which was really frustrating. The screens I showed were pulldowns and menus from an existing screen (the search screen). I should have displayed it in a video to appear less overwhelming. In lieu of the situation, I got rid of some of the search functionality (which I will probably bring back later on because I regret taking them out). Below, I also featured working with different color possibilities for the search function.
Not all of the screens are reworked here, just the search function and nearby.
Working with different colors since the last color scheme didn’t work out.
There are a ton of reworks in between with minor changes till I eventually re-do everything in a final rework, rework 7.
Rework 06: I introduced the compass feature in this version which works a lot better with the app. It guides the user to the truck they want, regardless of if the truck is on the move or not.
