Our application is a simple way to manage your foods, know what is expired, and create a shopping list. Through our various pages, users can easily navigate the application. Each page has its own unique properties and features. Visit our home page to view the user video of Expireminder.
On the homepage of the users phone or tablet, they would be able to see our widget and easily access their information.
When the user has a notification, it would pop up as soon as they open the app.
Our home page shows what has already expired, what is expiring today, and what is expiring soon. From our customer interviews, we found out that the customers wanted to see the date expiring beside the food item.
The New Entry page allows users to simply add a food to their list of expired foods. They have three methods of adding the products name: a manual method, a scanning method, and a camera method. They can enter the exact expiration date or the can use our produce settings to set an expiration date for produce by entering in the number of weeks or days the product will “expire” in. The user will also set the time they want to be reminded in in weeks or days so they have time to finish the food. When the user is done, they can save and add another entry without having to go back to the home page or they can save the entry and go back to the home page. If they decide to delete the entry, they can discard it.
The My Foods page is a database of all of the users foods, regardless of their expiration date. It will automatically display the foods by expiration date but the user can also sort them alphabetically or by type. By clicking on a food, a detailed pop-up would show up, as shown below.
When the user clicks on an item in My Foods, a detailed page will pop-up. They can delete the item, add it to their shopping list, or edit it, through this pop-up page.
Since the user has already entered all of their foods on the Expireminder, we figured it would be easy for them to add a food onto the shopping list once they delete it. They can also easily add other items, such as medicine, cleaning supplies, and electronics to their shopping list as well. When they have bought the item or decided they do not need to buy it anymore, they can click the X to delete the item from the list.
The users can sync their foods to another phone with the application. They need to enter their first and last name so it would be easy to recognize them. They can also change their profile picture to one that we have provided or choose/take their own picture. Each user has a unique sync code which will enable them to sync with other by adding the code. The user can see a list of people they are synced with and can delete them at any time. When the user adds somebody else, that person will receive a notification and will have to accept in order for the lists to sync.
The settings page easily enables users to change the settings and permissions for this particular application without needing to go to the settings page on their phone. They can turn the notifications, camera, barcode scanner, and syncing on and off as well as set default reminders for themselves. The user can also enable themes and backgrounds on this page.
