Let’s take a walkthrough of the Tesco Groceries app for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad (the latter running in “iPhone mode”).
Here is the opening screen (when you first use the app, you will be asked to tap in your Tesco.com grocery login email and password). You can choose a delivery slot, and see when the next order is due (which you can amend if you wish):
The Shopping List is your own memo pad, allowing you to type any product name in free-form text, perfect for remembering items quickly as you think of them. You could easily use the app in any shop as an electronic version of a written list, or tap the text to perform a live product search at Tesco so we can entice you with great prices and special offers:
Tapping the square next to the item makes a “tick” appear, just as you would tick a paper list as you choose products:
If you’re like me, then the first place to go when putting together an order is to use the Favourites list. When you registered your account and used a Clubcard, your Favourites list stores all the items you have previously purchased online and in-store.
You can also filter your favourites to view just those on special offer.
In the example below, notice that one of the products has a green background – this means that product is already in your basket. All searches showing products in your basket will be highlighted this way so you can change the quantity or even remove them if you wish.
Here is the ‘shop’ screen. Either type in some text to find the product you are looking for, or follow the department – aisle – shelf hierarchy to browse for products:
Here is an example text search for chips. Again we highlight products on special offer:
Finally here is the basket. From here you tap the checkout button which will cause the app to start the iPhone’s Safari browser which will connect into a checkout special page designed for iPhone on the Tesco.com grocery web site. If you are called Paolo then your delicious chips and beer diet will soon be on its way. For everyone else, at least you’ll get the entire grocery range to choose from – on average that’s more than 20,000 products. Healthier products are available…!
So there you are – our new little app for iPhone giving you personal, pocketable access to our complete grocery home shopping service. It’s taken a year of planning, design, coding and testing by a fantastic team across Tesco.com and our mobile design and development partner Ribot.
Now it’s yours. Enjoy!
