Application is for helping people with diets and finding recipes.
People want to eat healthy meals and be aware of their diet.
Create app that will allow to browse recipes, add user’s diet and manage shopping list.
Understanding the user
User research: summary
I conducted user interviews and created empathy maps to understand the users. A primary user group identified through user research was working adults with some diets or meal problems.
This user group revealed problems like: Add/Edit my diet, Search based on diet, Create shopping list to know what to buy.
User research: pain points
