User insights from digital prototyping:

From class:

Dish tab:

1. some hierarchy and consistency issues in the top three part.

a)What’s the most important thing among the health status, delivery address, and the search bar? Try to simplify it.

b) Current health status seems that you could tap it and type something.

7days is not clear enough

The “add records” button? Why it exists here?

c) Refine button, why it’s red?

2. the change view button, try to use a clear pattern, don’t make users feel confused.

3. Dish Details view

The applicable people part. Perhaps you could say that this is applicable to the user.


Health Data tab:

  1. What’s the relationship between the current health status and the calendar?
  2. the privacy protection part. Is that necessary? since the health status could be seen in the dish tab. Refer to the HIG fingerprint part.

Push Notification:

Consider humanization. Such as encouragement.

The whole:

Some text is not clear enough. Consider the size of the typography.


Week 4 || Frannie

User test feedback:

  1. The position of the recipe’s name was confusing, should be move either higher or lower in order to identify the recipe.
  2. What about ingredients like salt, and green onions in the recipe? Should there be recommendation for user based on these ingredients?
  3. There should be title for options in the recommend based on category/ingredient page.
  4. Text are too small.

User Test results

Insights from Users and Research.

1. From the user test, people told me for busy people; maybe they do not need time filter specifically. They aim to make food quick. Think about another filter which can be helpful for them.

2. And people asked me “Is there any popular recipe or recommendation recipe?”

3. Think about the menu. (No need drink, dessert, or appetizer for this app.)

During my research, I found out that there are not many recipes that only takes 5minutes or 10minutes so, I decided to provide a recipe, which takes less than 40minutes. And I made a new filter that users can put the ingredients they have at home, or they want to eat. After their inputs, the app will recommend four recipes based on ingredients they choose.


Digital Prototype



Among all the feedback, what tangled me most was the process of how users select and buy a weekly plan in the app. Initially, I just considered it as a normal buying process, however, during the user tests, I noticed that there are many other factors which should be taken in my consideration. For instance, how to encourage people to buy again? Or how to differentiate various plans with each other? Therefore, I did a redesign of Order-A-Plan.

Week 4

User Insights:

  • Wanted to be able to see more stuff under explore without scrolling
  • Feed and discover look too similar
  • Users swiped through the steps of the recipes and didn’t use the next button
  • Users wanted play button to be centered on video
  • More blur behind titles to make them more legible
  • Add steps to making a recipe instead of putting it all on one screen

Updated Prototype

Week 4 hw Ting

User Feed Back

1.Two floating buttons are weird. Need to decide whether search or saved item is more important to have an individual tab. In this case, search seems more important; I decide to keep saved item in the profile tab.

2.News tab > Inspairation

3.Missing sub-category page.

4.In the Profile tab, the food preference tags seem unnecessary.

5.Pantone color smoothie: kept only the “Brightness” slider to restrict users picking from yellow, orange, green, and purple color scheme (because not all the colors can be made by smoothies.)

1.The background color for tabs shouldn’t be the same color as the app background, and the highlight color pink is unclear.

2.In the full recipe page, steps instructions in the bottom change to slide show, following step by steps by swiping left.

3.Bigger bigger bigger!

4.The plus sign next to products in shop tab are confusing.

5.Remove the cart logo and show “4 items in cart” with text  on the upper right corner.
