Changes Made During Development

Several changes were made when implementing the app from the design documents. The dropdown menu icon was originally an arrow pointing to the left. This looked like a back button, so we used a hamburger icon instead. We had considered a panel instead of a dropdown menu and felt that it would be more appropriate, but chose to stick to the document specifications. We also did not implement the "Group Meal Planner" page. The implementation, usage, and usefulness was vague and not fully fleshed out.
