Going out to eat with friends and family is meant to be easy and enjoyable. Someone else makes you food, serves you and does the dishes at the end of it all. However, some people who have dietary restrictions have a harder time finding suitable places when they're eating out. There are already a few apps out on the market that help people with dietary needs find restaurants, but they only ever handle one type. Delish was created to make it easier for people to find nearby restaurants that serve dishes which cater to all of their specific dietary needs.
How it works
Once you open the app, you are prompted to login or to create an account. This allows you to save your specific dietary needs, favourite dishes, write reviews and more! Once you have logged in, you can choose what type of meal you would like to go out for, whether it's breakfast, lunch, dinner, or dessert. Then you can select all of the dietary restrictions that apply to you or your group. Once you are done, a list of dishes that meet those dietary restrictions from nearby restaurants will appear. You can then browse through, look at reviews, and even book a reservation at the restaurant!
Challenges I ran into
The biggest challenge was the short amount of time that we had to complete this.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
We are proud of adding in Google Maps, filtering through a list of restaurants, and overall just putting together an app.
What I learned
I learned about how to create apps in Android Studio.
What's next for delish
The future for Delish is quite open. Should Delish ever become a company, we plan on collaborating with many restaurants to provide them with information on what types of dishes are popular and to provide our users with coupons and great deals!
