  • Sal! Mobile App
    An app that helps you discover restaurants, make reservations, get deals and post reviews.


    This mobile app was developed for the Sal! brand in 2012-2013 and is available for iPhone and Android. Sal! is a brand dedicated to the food, restaurant and entertainment industry in Puerto Rico, and can be seen at www.sal.pr.
     
    The main objective of this project was to create an application that is the ultimate reference for people searching for restaurants while providing a useful and fun experience, taking advantage of mobile capabilities such as maps and gps location. The business goal was to use features available in mobile and provide the user with tools to help them decide on a restaurant experience before they actually sit down to enjoy a meal.
     
    The design provides menus, filters and icons that repeat throughout the sections and establish a language that becomes familiar to the user. Design aesthetic follows those established for the brand since its beginning and which are also used in the website.
     
    A menu introduces the sections: Donde Comer {where to eat},  Reserva {make reservations},  Ofertas {deals}, Que Hacer {things to do}, Check In, Mis Favoritos {favorite spots} and a Tip Calculator. Within the app, user can aslo share lists of restaurants, review restaurants, check in, among other features.
