What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

About

HowUdish brings together quality-conscious foodies with quality eats wherever you are based on your dietary preferences. At home, you'll know sooner when a new spot opens up that caters to your dietary needs. Where this app really shines is for travelers that find it darn near impossible to stick to their meal plans when vacationing. Imagine hitting the road or the skies knowing that you've got HowUdish in your pocket to help you find a dish that won't kill your gut.    

We know what you're thinking... if we already have an app, why are we on Kickstarter?

The truth is developing our groundbreaking iOS app that helps you find the dish fit for you cost us a lot of money! We really want to expand the community and help bring our diet solution to more people with an Android version. Most people would be surprised how expensive it can be to bring an app to market, especially one as complex as ours!

You're not a picky eater, you just care about what's in your body. HowUdish helps you be healthier.

Named one of the Top 10 Fitness Apps of the New Year by Men’s Health

Medical News Today names HowUdish as a Top Ten App for Lowering Cholesterol

Launched just five months ago, our iPhone app has already gotten a ton of attention. Check out some of our ratings and user comments. We know we’ve been helping people. But we don’t want to leave out Android users who are just as hungry as the rest of us!

Our easy-to-use app helps you to quickly find the perfect restaurant meal for you based on your location. And you can get this info within just seconds. At the same time, you’ll gain valuable information about your foods including calories, fat and more in just one click.

  • One of the best apps you’ll ever use for losing weight, maintaining your eating style, or bulking up!
  • Click on a diet & HowUdish does the rest
  • Save and rate meals
  • Track weight loss goals and find recipes
  • Interact with other Dishers
  • Enjoy great food and make friends along the way
  • 100% of the Kickstarter funds we raise will go directly to our awesome team of app developers

We’re making the world healthier, but we can’t do it without YOU!

HowUdish team members have our own various dietary restrictions including low-carb, vegan, and gluten free. We know all too well how it feels to not be able to find a restaurant that suits our needs. That’s why we are passionate about helping dieters and those with dietary restrictions and special nutritional requirements.

"As someone who loves to peruse menus before going out, I think that this app is super helpful and has a ton of potential!" - Amanda Hernandez, The Nutritionist Reviews

 "I appreciate the app's ability to guide me to restaurants that can provide me with inspiration going in and satisfaction in my options when I get there." - Alia Nahra, Spoon University

Looking to Avoid Gluten? Carbs? Are you Vegan? Vegetarian?

Have you ever missed out on good times and fun due to dietary restrictions? Or have you ever been on the go and panicked because you couldn’t figure out a place to eat that fits your diet requirements? We have your diets and many others covered.

Simply open the HowUdish app, select one of our diets and you’ll instantly see the best restaurant meal options within your area.

Meet Friends Who Eat Like You Do!

Eating by yourself can be lonely. That’s why HowUdish works to connect dieters to one another. That means that you can meet new people (and who knows, maybe even your soulmate?) in-app or offline at restaurants.

When you can find friends with similar dietary needs and preferences, you’ll gain eating tips & tricks, and life just becomes more tasty. HowUdish encourages chatting, following and finding posts from likeminded eaters.

Will the Android Version Be Different?

Our plan is to make our Android version even better and more exciting than the previously existing iPhone app. We are adding more interactivity for users and we are planning to add coverage internationally in areas, such as the UK and Canada. We are working on adding more cities too.

What Does HowUdish Premium Offer?

HowUdish is a free app but we offer a Premium level for iPhone and we'll have that same Premium functionality for the Android. 

How Do You Use HowUdish?

Just enter your diet or even a specific food. A second later, you’ll get meal options at different restaurants that match your needs. Tap on a meal and you’ll get all key info, such as calories, fat, carbs, protein levels and more. Like we said, easy!

Swipe right on dishes to store and save them. You can even track your weight loss goals, rate dishes, and interact with other people.  

What are the HowUdish Diet Options?

Helping Eaters to Eat Better  

We are excited about the expanded options coming that will let Dishers communicate better with one another. You can meet and help friends get healthier, reach your weight loss goals and share delicious foods.

We have some pretty awesome perks, please check them out. We're giving out everything from premiere subscriptions in Android and iPhone and our wonderful HowUdish swag  bag to invitations to our VIP Android Release party in NYC at one of our favorite restaurants!

Risks and challenges

One potential obstacle is that our app team may not finish the Android version by our proposed deadline. We anticipate we will be on time, but if that occurs, we promise to always keep our backers in the loop with details about what is going on. The development costs may also exceed what we are raising on Kickstarter. If that occurs, we are prepared to pay for the extra costs out of pocket.
