We have excellent news that the first stage of our EatBy App experiment is drawing to a conclusion, resulting with the development of the Next Generation EatBy App.
We’ve been overwhelmed by the worldwide support we’ve received and the tremendous feedback which we are using to develop Version Two. This will obviously lead to a number of big improvements. We are extremely proud of our prototype, Version One, but always planned to develop technology way beyond the current app release. Using feedback we’re on schedule developing Version Two with improvements to the User Interface, more automation and new features. All of which will greatly simplify the user experience.
Our original goal was to achieve the development of what we call “Invisible Technology”. Simply put, this is technology that efficiently works in the background of our lives with minimum user interaction and maximum benefit.
We were acutely aware during the development of Version One that users of the EatBy App would need to be people who generally like using apps to organise their lives. Many people enjoy making lists using their smartphones and personal devices; scheduling meetings, appointments and putting the bins out for collection. But these technology driven “life hacks” don’t suit everybody! If technology is to make a real change, reducing food waste and optimising food production, then it must be invisible and ubiquitous. It shouldn’t need to appeal to a particular type of user and it should be unobtrusively compatible with everybody’s daily life. It involves automation, integration and a thorough understanding of lifestyles and the food industry.
This is naturally where the real challenge lies. EatBy App will eventually offer a global solution to the problem of food waste and overproduction.
The next part of our EatBy App development will bring us at least one step closer to achieving this goal. We are looking forward to the release of the next generation EatBy App in the coming months so watch this space.
