About this Project:

Sorted was a little creative side project I did as a concept.

The idea stemmed from the fact that I love planning meals and doing my checkers 60 for the week on a Sunday, and my Mom who I love dearly will come home every night at around 6 not knowing whats for dinner and still needing to go to the shop.
This was my attempt to help her plan her
meals, create a shopping list and have everything regarding meals in one place.

I wanted the app to do the following:

  • Upload recipes, from here it creates a shopping list for you based on the ingredients needed

  •  Create and save recipes

  • Add a shopping list manually

  • Organise your lists by categorising items under distinct stores such such as Pick'n'Pay, Woolworths, and Checkers




For this project I needed to do the following research:​

  • What are competitors doing?

  • Do people even need this app?

  • How do people find recipes and inspiration for their weekly meals?

  • Who would the target market be?

Given that this project is currently in the conceptual and creative phase, I won't invest resources to extensive research until I decide to pursue the idea further. However, I would use the below tools to gather data and information: 

  1. To start I would do a competitiors analysis, by going on to the app stores and seeing what similar products are out there.​​

    • I would download the apps with the best rating and test them out to find the pros and cons, based on this I would do a SWOT analysis. ​

    • From here I would create a list of important things I would like the app to have and what I issues I would like to ensure that app does not have.

If I was working with a team there would be brainstorming and kick off sessions, however because this is a solo project for now, it will just be me doing the brainstorming.

2. Based on the Brainstorming,I will formulate a survey and get individuals with in and outside of the target market to complete the survey.

3. Based on this information, the wireframes will be adjusted and improved.
