The Problems

Food Truck is an Android Application design for people who look for fast and delicious food nearby. Many of my friends have the problem of finding the food truck nearby or waiting in food truck’s line too long during lunch time or dinner time. So this is an app helps them quickly find food trucks, view menus, make orders and payment to skip the line.

Core Features

Based on users’ interview and survey, I summarized three major wants in using FoodTruck app:

  1. Search for food trucks nearby
  2. Check out menus
  3. Make orders in advance and pick up

Onboarding

Home

In response to those needs, I provided the solution by offering a map and a list combined view. So users could see the location and food information of each food truck nearby efficiently.

Food Truck Details

For the detail page of each food truck, users could view menu, read food truck information, and customers’ comments. I also designed a floating button for the menu viewing page. When clicked, users could see a category of dishes and go to the specific category directly.

Search

The searching bar combines location searching and food searching. It also made searching easier by showing the searching history as well as offering suggesting words or hints.

Order Food

The searching bar combines location searching and food searching. It also made searching easier by showing the searching history as well as offering suggesting words or hints.

Navigation, My Orders and Account

For “My Orders”, users could see a complete history of shopping for food truck. After selecting a certain food truck, they could view their order details, payment information, as well as food truck information for another quick shopping. “Account” is mainly for users to change account information, like payment information. They can also link it to Facebook or other social media, so they can quickly share the food truck they like and notify their friends.

Conclusion

In FoodTruck design, I learned a lot in map navigation, searching by key words and location, and Android design principles. For next steps, I hope to give more featured food trucks recommendations on the home page based on users’ dinning history. I will also try to add some social elements to the Food Truck design to hook users on the app and allow them to hang out with their social groups while enjoy delicious food.
