Part-time Student @ GT / Married and has 2 kids
A perfect fit of the target audience of this application - there are currently 5 people in his household, and multiple people in the household take care of the grocery. Also, all of them share and consume the food. He is a working professional who is also a part-time master student at Tech, and his schedule is very tight too.
As we started the test and the notification showed up, it was natural for him to swipe to launch the app. It was very smooth while he was on the first task. While he was trying to tap into the ‘To Buy’ grocery list, he tapped the banner instead of the icon as he thought the entire element should be interactable instead of just the icon area. In the second task, he said that it will be great if the items are added while he was shopping grocery so that he wouldn't need to get into the app one more time after arriving home.
The last two tasks were completed without any problem. The interactions seemed pretty smooth.
As a firstly introduce the concept of the app, he immediately responded ‘ OK, you’ve sold me the idea!’ And he said the idea, in general, could be very useful considering the multi-people condition of his household.
One concern is about the push notification at the beginning, as he personally does not like a lot of notifications showing up at a system level. He liked the idea of having a ticker on the homepage, and he suggested that the app should only push the notification when there’s something needs his Immediate attention.
