Recently I bought a Nestle Nespresso® espresso machine. Of course first thing I did was to search if there is an Android application that helps me to easily check the taste of the different coffee types and maybe even helps me to keep track of my stock of capsules.
All I found was a Iphone application which disappointed me very much, so I decided to write my own application dedicated to Nespresso®.
The result can now be downloaded from the Android market.
Up to now the application supports 3 main basic functions:
- Get information about the different capsules, as an overview and in detail.
- Create an inventory of each coffee type capsule you bought.
- Gives you the possibility to go to the Nespresso website and order new capsules online.
There is no link between the applications inventory and your orders. There is as well no possibility to automatically update your inventory. And for now only English language is suported.
Short introduction to the application.
|On the main screen you see a list of all available Nespresso® capsules available.
Press one of the capsules on the right side or top (depending on your screen orientation). Then the left or lower part of the screen will be updated with quick information about the coffee.
You see as well the inventory status for this capsule and can change it by pressing the -10, -1, +1 or +10 buttons.
The WWW button will bring you to the Nespresso® website for online ordering.
The Stock button will show you an overview of your inventory.
The Details button will show you more information about the selected coffee type.
A long press on one of the capsules will bring you directly to the detail information screen.
Exit will bring you back to the main screen of your device and send MyEspresso to sleep.
|On the details screen you can see all the specifications for the selected coffee type.
And as on the main screen you can see the inventory status for this capsule and can change it by pressing the -10, -1, +1 or +10 buttons.
|Not much to say about the stock inventory screen. It just shows you a list of all capsules and how many of them you have.
|If you press the WWW button, at the moment it will just open your default browser. If it is the default Android browser you will be forwarded automatically to the order login page. Other browser might bring you to the Nespresso® main page.
Nespresso® is the brand name of Nestlé Nespresso S.A., an operating unit of the Nestlé Group based in Lausanne, Switzerland. Nespresso machines brew espresso from special capsules containing ground coffee.
I am not in any way linked to or employeed by Nestlé Nespresso S.A. My application is just using public available informations and makes it usable on Android devices.
