    Reading summary:

    Andrew
    — Ch 4 – SEO important but no search in his app
    — Ch 5 – navigation probably most important re patterns and moving through app
    — Ch 6 – Question re charts (data/tracking useful for backend)
    — Ch 7 – Tutorials and Invitations (impt for this game)
    — Ch 8 – Social patterns (going to focus on the website not the app)

    Katie
    — Ch 4 – auto-complete useful for this app / filters also could be helpful
    — Ch 5 – app has a toolbox for people who have profiles (saved / add to list / avoid / share / write a note)
    — Ch 6 – data! nutrition and ingredients / dashboard-y versus looking like the label
    — Ch 7 – front-loading (no tutorial – needs to be self-explanatory/automagic scan) — rewarding component – when you add a healthy item you rack up points or how it helps your body or local community
    — Ch 8 – Food Detective profile // add Pinterest

    Raisa
    — Ch 4 – dynamic search / GIS-based
