To design a mobile application based in the iOS operating system that allows patrons of the restaurant to perform activities solely available on location from various locations to ensure an expedited and convenient experience before and while they dine.
This is the main sign-in screen for the application. From this screen, the user is able to log into their account using the standard method or social media integration, sign-up for an account, or recover a lost password. Those who do not have an account can use immediate immersion, which allows them to preview the apps functionality with some limitations (no ability to place orders, or view the "my account" section).
The menu is generally the preview of a mobile applications design; keeping to the "tradition" of this I chose not to follow any popular trends and left the main navigation as well as the settings in open-view. From a visual as well as a developmental standpoint, I chose to take a more simple approach for a more pleasant experience for the user.
Transition from 'Main Menu' to 'Food Menu'
Transition from 'Food Menu' to 'Food Sub-Menu'
Although this screen represents the 'Dessert' sub-menu, the design is the same throughout all sub-menus for this section of the application. Each sub-menu is led by the featured item at the top of the screen
Food Selection #1
I chose to design two separate interactions with the food items within the submenus, one using the swipe action and the tap action. The first interaction deals with tapping the image. By doing so, it allows the user to view the description of the item as well as actions to either select a pre-made custom order option or use the "comments" button if what they'd wish to modify was not found initially. They will also find options to add the item to the cart as well as add the item to the "likes" section of the app which can be found under the "My Account" screen.
Food Selection #2
I chose to design two separate interactions with the food items within the submenus, one using the swipe action and the tap action. The second interaction can be described as a "quick select" option. upon swiping the photo of the item the user would like to select, the options of 'like' and 'add' are revealed. Mainly created in the event that the user knows exactly what they want and would prefer it to be prepared 'as-is' by the chef.
