Weedmaps is an app designed to help users locate local medical marijuana dispensaries in their area.
Upon logging into the app and allowing the app to use their location, the user’s homescreen is populated with content relevant to them based on location. Users can also access a map view, a brands section, and see a list of nearby deals on marijuana.
The map view really is the core of the platform. It uses the user’s location to display nearby dispensaries. Location flags are designed with marijuana leaves as the symbol -- a cute nod to the app’s purpose. Listing are shown at the bottom of the map and as the user scroll through these listings horizontally, they map moves to zoom in closer to that location. Robust filtering options allow users to refine their results by locations that are currently open, the type of location (ie; storefront, delivery service, doctor), the dispensary type (ie; medical or recreational), the categories of marijuana the location carries, and a host of other factors including whether the location accepts credit cards, is wheelchair accessible, and has photos attached to their listing. Each dispensary listing has a menu, an overview, and user reviews, as well as the requisite contact, location, and opening hours information.
The weedmaps app has a modern, functional design. The brand color, turquoise, is used throughout with accents of yellow, pink, and orange to punctuate the experience. The app is easy to use, and allows users to quickly find and identify dispensaries based on an impressive range of criteria.
Weedmaps is an awesome app design in the medical & pharmacy industry.
