This is an individual project where I designed an app that focus on "community" for single inhabitants, and which involves need definding, ideation, comparative analysis, user-journeying, paper prototyping, hifidelity and interative prototypes completed in 10 weeks.
“Cooking that small amount I'd rather skip it”
“I'm tired of eating my own sandwiches every day”
“There is no one I can exchange recipes with”
"I wish to tickle my taste buds."
Eating good food with friends is one of the joys of life. To connect people who seek the pleasure of various kinds of food and who have the hidden social need of eating, my design encourages and facilitates potluck meetup in the community. Potluck style meetup is a good idea with distributed food preparations among a group of people where they come to dine together and have good food and conversations.
If the prototype is not showing up on your computer,
you can go to: my Fooriend prototype on marvel app

or if you want to see the paper prototype at earlier stage
This is version II, and 1.25x speed would save you some time
Interaction is the key. It should be simple and easy enough for user to engage with. One inspiration comes from social dating apps. By analyzing the successful ones, I found the swiping left for dislike, and right for favor is the easiest, fastest way to browse through a large number of pictures and categorize them. If they want to see the details of a dish/recipe, just click.
