About this project
What we want to do
Where The Truck puts all of Australia’s food trucks on the one map everyday on our iOS App, now we want to bring this great App to Android users as well. The Android App will bring all the features of the iOS App to the finger tips of all Android device users;
- Find food trucks serving now on a interactive map
- Find the closest food trucks to your current location (GPS enabled)
- Explore further afield to view all current truck locations around your home state or all of Australia
- Discover details about each trucks serving times & locations
- Discover full details about each truck, their menu and upcoming locations
- Truck pins appear 3hrs prior to serving times with the ability to toggle between serving times 1hr, 2hr or 3hrs to see who’s serving near you at a time that suits you.
- GPS enabled allowing you to find the closest food trucks to your current location.
How we will do it
With your help the team at Where The Truck will use the funds from this campaign to cover the costs of scoping out the requirements for the Android App and engaging a team to design, develop and build the new Android App that includes all the great features of our current iOS App.
To date we have made great progress with the new Apps development, the scope is completed, the design elements created and we have a development team ready to start the build. All we need is your support to fund the projects completion.
If our campaign is fully funded we aim to have the new App and rewards available within 6-8 weeks.
Our rewards to you
You, our users
We have put together a range of great rewards for our backers so you can show your support what ever the budget. We have a range of rewards for our supporters, fans, App & website users that are sure to please any tastebuds.
The food truck business owners
We also have a number of rewards specifically designed for food truck business owners so they can get behind this great business solution that drives awareness and demand for their scrumptious street food on four wheels.
How we got here:
Where The Truck all started when we identified the time and effort involved in truck owners having to post their current locations to Facebook & Twitter on a daily basis (with neither of these platforms designed for such a use). On the other side, truck fans had to search through their social streams to find posts from trucks to discover their location -it simply wasn't working and the Where The Truck digital solution was born.
We've come a long way since launching in March 2012. Since then, we've continued to improve and grow our digital platform for food truck business owners, and food truck fans and foodies across Australia, helping food truck owners run their business and helping users find where there next meal is parked.
Developing the Android App will allow more users to find the best food trucks across Australia serving-up some of the best street food going around, it will also put food truck owners in front of a bigger audience and that’s what Where The Truck is all about “supporting the gourmet food truck scene”!
Risks and challenges
We have done a lot of ground work to give the project the best chance of success. We have worked through the scope and creative elements for the new Android App development and we have a development team ready to start the build. All we need is your support to fund the build & deployment of the App.
If our campaign is fully funded we aim to have the new App available for download within 6-8 weeks. During this time we will also be producing other reward items including t-shirts & stickers ready to post as soon as the App is released.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
