UberEATS is the same Uber you know and love, but instead of delivering on-demand rides right to your door, the service delivers on-demand takeout in record time. For the convenience of users, regular Uber accounts and UberEATS are linked, so users pay via the same account information.
On logging into the UberEATS app, the user’s location is auto-populated and they’re asked to confirm or adjust their location. From there, the user is shown food delivery options in their area. Restaurants are divided into categories like “Under 25 Minutes” and “New on UberEATS”. Users can browse through options within these categories by swiping left and right through a card-based carousel. Each restaurant card shown includes an image, restaurant name, type of food or cuisine, and estimated delivery time, making it easy for users to get a quick overview without right from the carousel. Further options exist to search by cuisine or by a specific restaurant name.
Each restaurant page has a menu with dish name, description, and sometimes even a photo. The caliber of photography is very high, especially for a food delivery app, and that fact helps make ordering through the platform feel very enticing. Radio buttons make it easy to select options, and a prominent green call-to-action prompts users to add an item to their cart. Once an order is placed the user can track its progress and access an estimated delivery time.
The design of the UberEATS app is very slick. Lightweight typography and liberal use of whitespace make for a visually-pleasing browsing experience. The color palette is kept minimal, putting most of the attention on the food, and the app employs common gestures -- like pulling downwards to exit a detail page -- to improve the overall user experience.
UberEATS is a beautiful app design in the Distribution, E-commerce & Retail and Food & Beverage industries.
