A Restaurant-Guiding APP for Mantin


There are many restaurants at Mantin, sometimes it is quite difficult to find what someone wants to eat, and there will be a phone APP to guide both local and visitors what to eat.


This APP includes every restaurant at Mantin, HALAL or non-HALAL will be the first thing to select. Then the price, variety can also be selected. After selecting, there will be a restaurant list shows to the user.


Let everyone can find what he or she want to eat at Mantin.




  • The only APP for Mantin specifically
  • Low-cost leadership
  • Strong relationship with the suppliers


  • Mantin is only a small town with less residents and tourists; there will not be so many users here.
  • Not the best product quality
  • Slow response to customers’ inquiries


  • When the users become more, there is an opportunity to make this APP in a wider scope.
  • Government’s support in emerging local markets
  • More customers shifting to online shopping
  • New ways to encourage repeat visits


  • When the APP becomes wider using, there will be more similar APPs here.
  • Indirect competitors entering the industry to present direct competition

Problem Statement

  • Only for local tourists or globally?
  • How to promote this APP?
  • Do people really need a phone APP to guide them?


This proposal introduces a restaurant-guiding APP for Mantin, everyone comes to Mantin can download it from the APP Store and use it easily. People can get a joyful experience with using this APP.

Design is the creation of a plan or convention for the construction of an object or a system (as in architectural blueprints, engineering drawings, business processes, circuit diagrams and sewing patterns). Design has different connotations in different fields (see design disciplines below). In some cases the direct construction of an object (as in pottery, engineering, management, cowboy coding and graphic design) is also considered to be design.

Role of Designer

Designers work in a multitude of fields, from fashion, architecture and graphic design to web and user experience. While the specifics of actual jobs may vary by field, the work of “designers” shares many essential features.  However, the common impression of the typical designer can differ greatly from reality.
