Day 155: The Tinkerdash reviews are in, I didn’t quite expect this

“The more I live, the more I learn. The more I learn, the more I realise, the less I know.” – Michel Legrand

Sadly, the one-month Tinkerdash blogger review was now over. The good news, however, was that four of the reviews had been published and we were delighted by how much we were able to help people and learn from the experience.

As Claire, one of the reviewers put it, the one-month Tinkerdash pilot had taught us a lot of things that we never expected it too.

Yes, it was expected that Tinkerdash would help people save time and money. It was not expected, however, that it would also help families spend more time together or help people understand how food affects their body.

From the feedback, it was also suggested that people would be willing to pay in the region of £20-£30 for the “full” service, which included the adding of the ingredients to the customer’s online supermarket basket. Useful to know but yet to be validated by a bunch of people signing up and paying this figure of course.

And not all of the feedback was positive, for example, a lot was learnt about the scalability of the concept (or lack it). It also became evident that the onboarding process needed some work, amongst other aspects of the service such as planning over longer periods than one week.

On whole, it proved to be a highly beneficial experience and one I’d recommend as a means of getting early feedback from users.
