Streamplate’s on the App Store!
The app isn’t perfect. It’s still being built. But it’s still pretty cool.
“Hot fuck, what was that”. Yeah, when my attention swapped eyes for my dinner of roast beef to the drunkard at my cousin’s wedding in Ireland, I knew his wordplay had left a lasting impression on me somewhere. So now as I waited in Sydney’s CBD at 2 am, with no one except red-eyed cops at Maccas to bear witness to how nonsensical it was to see a shooting star fizz past fluorescent-towers, my mind blurted to itself — “Hot fuck, what was that” and then “…that was strange to think”. Everything strange happens at 2 am.
So then as I started thinking back to that wedding, that template of interruption reappeared as my phone vibrated — a new message from the App Store. Streamplate was approved.
You can check out Streamplate on the App Store here. It’s not ready for a public reveal yet, but we’re privately advertising amongst our immediate social networks. We’ll be spending the next two weeks identifying and patching bugs which we already know exist throughout the app. After the two weeks and once we’re satisfied with Streamplate, we’ll begin publicly advertising our app.
By the beginning of February, Streamplate’s features will include:
- Personalised venue and menu recommendations,
- Ordering at a table,
- Split bills,
- Ingredient/allergen filtering,
- Search for venues and menu-items,
- Voice-to-text searching and ordering,
- Event creation so any user can temporarily receive orders,
- Menu curation so any user can earn a commission,
- At-Home serving so any user can serve a meal from their home and make money,
- Shareable URLs that link directly to content on the app,
- Apple-Pay integration,
- Daily dietary caps that adjust to your order history throughout the day,
- Nutritional caps for protein, carbohydrates, calories and fats,
- Accurate waiting-time calculations,
- Unique images for all menu-items,
- Nutritional information for all menu-items,
- An interface that shows surrounding users’ behaviour in real-time.
We’ll be pushing updates every day across our app and our servers. By the beginning of February, not only are we hoping to have polished up our app but also to have 1,000 venues on board!
Many thanks to all of those that have been supportive over the past few years. Strangely enough, while it feels like this is the end of a mammoth workload to bring Streamplate onto the App Store, the most important work begins now.
Again, many thanks for all your support,
