Drink Orders is a quick app to list drink orders. Instead of typing every order in your iPhone, you can select them from the build in picker controller. Scroll and tab to select. That’s all to it. Drink that or not in the list/data base can be easily added to it.
The other feature of the app is listing the drink list in horizontal mode. This can be handy in certain cases.
For the design, my main focus was on easy two use, with no typing (kept at a minimum). So that’s why I choose a picker controller as input method. Two rows one for the alphabet the other the drink name arranged by alphabet. Adding the amount of drinks per order can be done by simply tapping on the plus sign (on the right). Decreasing the number is done by tapping the left side (on the number itself). I didn’t want to put in a minus sign, because I wanted a simple and clear interface with a minimalistic look. So that also part of the simple paper look and black ink for text and lines.
About the promo material itself I especially like this promo image.
Again minimalistic and simple. The message is quit clear I think.
And that’s all to it. Nothing more to say about this app.
app description in app store:
So you’re new at the office. Responsibilities, tasks and a lot of work load. But it doesn’t stop at this.
Do you know that sometimes it’s required of the new guy to do all the coffee orders for your colleagues.
This can be quit troublesome. Especially with certain picky colleagues with fancy drink names.
How to remember them all?
This is were the “Drink Orders App” comes into play. With the minimalistic interface and easy user experience, it can all be done with just a few simple gestures. Tap, scroll, select and your done. Up to the next one.
Tap the plus sign to increase the drink number. Or tap on the number itself to decrease it (handy when you make a mistake).
Another nice feature is the ability to show just your drinks list, without buttons and other distractions. This can be done by rotating your iPhone. Can you imagine in a crowded place with lots of noises. It’s hard to make your drink orders clear to the bartender. With the “Drink Orders App” this is all history.
