This APP is intended to help choice-phobia students at University of California San Diego choose where to eat with a simple shake of the iPhone. The options include on-campus restaurants and dining halls plus a few popular choices near UCSD. Users can also refine the results using the filter, which provides some helpful restrictions: on or off campus, hours, if dining dollar (the prepaid money students can spend in specific places on campus) can be used, exact location on campus.
WHAT-TO-EAT efficiently saves time for UCSD students on deciding where to eat and clip the wings of visiting closed eating places. Besides, this App contains dynamic effects that add to the user experience. When the user gives a shake, signed bubbles that show the logos of the eating places start to move on the screen according to a specific algorithm, and one bubble will at the end pop out to show the selected option. Users can repeat the process if not satisfied with the result.
The improving direction by our team would be adding a memory function that records where the user actually decides to eat each time. After getting the final result, the user can tap on the result bubble to tell the system that the selected is his or her actual decision so that WHAT-TO-EAT can record it for future reference.
