Food Runner Mobile Application for UiTM Tapah Students
Food delivery service is an uprising service that were used worldwide. It can be used in few platforms such as mobile apps or a website. It usually involves 3 types of users which are the customer, the rider, and the restaurant. It also brings a lot of benefit in an individual daily life. If people had no time to prepare their meal, or stuck in a back-to-back meeting session, food delivery service is an option to fix their meal break. However, food delivery service is only available in a busy and high-density household area in Malaysia. This project proposed a UiTM Tapah EAT mobile application for UiTM Tapah Students, a food delivery service that can be used in an Android smartphone as a mobile app and able to receive notification of order status in real-time. Since Tapah is a small town placed in Perak, it also holds a university that occupied with about 2,000 students at one time. These students have few limitations of buying meal outside of the university or they are too busy with their schedule. This project uses Android Studio, an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for Android app development to design the pages using XML and develop the functions of the mobile app using Java language. Besides, this project also used Firebase, a mobile and web application developments platform that helps in storing the data in real-time. Once the development process complete, this project was tested with functionality test that list all the functions available in the app to be evaluated accordingly. The results of the experiment show that all functions in the app successfully executed including the notification system between two end-users, the customer and the runner.
