This is an individual mobile app project finished in Spring 2015 at University of Washington, where I worked with Jason Lavine. My works involve user research, ideation, prototype and iteration.
A social dining app which provides better dining experience by bringing together hungry people with trouble finding dining-mates sharing the same interests, and by getting them the better restaurant choice.
I created several high fidelity interfaces demonstrating key features, including group list, group setup, groupmate info, etc.
Please give me a partner. I hate eating alone.
People don't really like eating alone.
What happened? Why everyone stop talking?
People have silent lunch, due to the lack of same interests.
Yes, I know it's 3pm now. I am just asking.
People miss the lunch time.
Oh, you are busy. Okay, I'll ask Kelly.
People have no idea of other's availability.

It should pair up hungry people when they miss the lunch time and not able to find a eating partner.
It should pair up people who share the similar interests so that doesn’t make a silent lunch.
It should provide location-based dining options based off of user’s/restaurant’s location.
Introducing restaurants nearby, including names, popularities and costs.
A number of criteria which enable users to filter through the list.
After a restaurant is selected, users are able to see the existing groups in there.
If there isn't a fit, users could create a new group based upon their own preferences, and wait people to join in.
Users could get more information about each group and decide whether to join or not.
Users could also see other participants in each group, and check out reviews to them.
This page shows reviews from previous dining partners. Users could decide whether this page is public or not.
Users could check out their own past dining activities, and manage the upcoming ones.
When users change their minds, or cannot make it, they could cancel the group and exit.
Users are able to leave reviews for every group members, which could help later users to make decisions.
Users are able to befriend with interesting groupmates for future grouping opportunities.
