Evernote launches a 'preserve and relive' app for foodies

 

Let's all agree that amateur food photography has gotten a bit -- out of control.

Go out to eat with someone younger than 30 and you can assume that at some point during the meal a phone will come out and a photo of something on the table will be taken. Those photos -- sometimes tantalizing, sometimes not -- will inevitably wind up on Facebook with a caption like, "Ramen with Deborah. So YUM!"

Amateur food images were always easy to share but not necessarily easy to find again. Would you really look through all your old Facebook photos in order to answer the question, "What's good here?"

And that's where Evernote's new -- and free -- Evernote Food app comes in. The company describes the app as a way to "preserve and relive memorable food experiences."

The app allows the user to chronicle an entire meal experience like "Dim Sum at Ocean Star" or "Anniversary Dinner at Hatfield's." You can punch in captions as you take photos -- "The yellowtail ceviche is INSANE!" -- and, of course, you can include photos of the people who share your meal as well. After all, it's not just the food that makes a meal special.

The app will automatically sync with your Evernote account (if you have one), and more importantly, it is also compatible with Twitter and Facebook. If you are going to obsessively chronicle a meal, you'll probably still want the world to see it.
