This report details the development of an Android application which is a social media application for food lovers. The app is developed using Java and Android studio. The report details the background of the application as well as all of the requirements considered when developing the application.

The design and architecture of the program details the application design and functions such as the shop, search bar and posting functions as well as detailing the GUI that the users will see when using the app.

After development, the app was thoroughly tested using JUnit and all functions were validated.

In conclusion the app is a fun and unique app for food lovers to connect and share recipes as well as engage with other users and order ingredients to make the selected recipes. In further development the app could incorporate a location service or a business registration for businesses to register and display their best recipes and sell ingredients or offer bookings for customers to come and eat.

The app has some drawbacks which include it is a social media app and in being so it competes with the giants of Facebook and Instagram which have a lot of users as well as similar features in terms of food communities, video and image hosting as well as liking and commenting features. Consequently, it may be difficult to convince users to actually move their engagements to this app instead of those they are familiar with.

Furthermore, any social media app needs a lot of users in order to function effectively. If the app does not generate a lot of users a lot of the features are useless as users will want to engage and see engagements in order to keep posting, as well as that the app’s content also relies on user generated recipes, so each user must be encouraged to provide their recipes which they may or may not have.
