About this Project:

We created an app called Picky Eats. Our app is designed by us to assist users in exploring new and good culinary adventures. We ourselves have dealt with food we wouldn’t want to eat so, simply put in the type of food you're craving, and our app will locate affordable and delicious food options nearby.
We started by identifying areas where people might need assistance In Food Choices, then we interviewed some teachers & Students and collected results . After discussing the findings, we proceeded to create the slides, with Mimi and I finalizing the details we created the app Picky Eats. This app now assists Users to find food that they want to try that is cheap and nearby.

Great Design
Makes Me Think

Feedback from the Judges:

👏 Director, Innovation at Verizon — Emoti-Con Judge
I love this idea! A way to help people explore different foods is great! I wish this app was available for my kids. As a suggestion, you might consider a feature where the user can enter a food they like (eg. chicken tenders) and get the equivalent in another cuisine (eg. chicken tempura).

👏 Chief Information Officer at Union College — Emoti-Con Judge
What an interesting idea to help people try new foods! I like that you interviewed teachers and students to help you with defining the areas where people might need assistance. I really like your idea of providing both new food options to try and showing how far away things are. I know when I have been in a time crunch, it really helps me to see how far away restaurants are to me. You might want to think about providing a list to pick from for food preference since there are so many options that you could type in then box! This is a great start and the name of the app is cute and really reflects what the app does!

Sanai 👏 a Middle School Student from Dock Street School for STEAM Studies
I love the way that this app could help people who don't like a huge variety of foods! I also like the fact that this app finds cheap places to eat the food you’d want to enjoy.
