Ratings and Reviews
Never knew I needed
I was honestly sceptical about an app like this, thinking, “Well, it’s the same as ordering there”, until a friend of mine recommended it and I actually tried it when my partner and I were super short on time. We wanted to grab coffee at Circa and if you go, you’ll know the wait time can get insane (but it’s so worth it)! So I tried out the app - incredibly user friendly and I had no trouble at all understanding how to navigate around or understand how it worked, so props to the UX/UI designer - we ordered our coffee and I just hopped out the car to pick it up when we were ready. No wait time, whatsoever. This is such a clever idea for people who are really trying to save time (or had procrastinated too long), and you won’t know its value until you need it 😂 helps a heap that it was quick to access and understand too, unlike a lot of similar apps, where it would probably have been faster ordering it there myself by the time the app registration/intro had completed. Somebody give the designer a raise, please 🙌
Developer Response ,
Thanks for reaching out to us and for the amazing feedback! Our whole team has read your message and we are so glad to hear you're loving the app.
Hey You is a great App and I use it almost everyday to order my morning and afternoon coffee when I’m short on time. The only 2 qualms I have is that you have to “allow notifications” to be informed of when your order is ready - The App tends to send you advertising notices throughout the day. I’ve written to them asking if this can be rectified. It’s unnecessary and makes you actually resent the App.
My theory is:
If you’re using it, you’ll undoubtedly love it, if you love it, you’ll continually use it so the need for advertising you an App - that you’re already using - is not helpful it’s just a little intrusive.
Also, I can’t seem to get my notifications of an “order ready” to make a sound. I have to keep looking at my phone to check.
Other than those 2 things it’s fabulous. Thanks
Convenient but spammy
The core UI is fine, and if you order coffee from places that use it, and you are too lazy to bring your own cup, then it’s very convenient.
However, lately it has got extremely spammy. Eg about once or twice a week I get a notification from Hey You that it thinks it would be a great day for me to use it to order food or coffee. Ummmmm, that’s not what notifications are for.
Somewhere at Hey You there are probably some people who call themselves Engagement engineers or Growth engineers or something who have either done the maths or are just guessing, and think it’s better for them to abuse the notifications this way and get pliable people to use order coffee through the app more often, than to limit their use of notifications, and not make people like me delete the app. I wonder whether they’re actually measuring both those metrics when they report their successes?
