Tap That App: Get your food porn organized with Evernote Food

2:15 /

Keep track of food and wine you enjoy with an app aimed at food photographers.

In my eyes, there are two kinds of users on the Internet: People who post photos of their food and people who don�t. It�s unclear when the food porn fetish began, but today there�s no shortage of Facebook users posting photos of their homemade meals, greasy burgers, and bacon-wrapped anything. I personally like to use my food photos as a diary of sorts, so I can keep track of food that I like, in case I want to have it again or try making it at home. But here�s the problem. Those food pics often get lost in the mess of my camera roll. The photo is there, but I have no details about where I ate it, what it was, and if I liked it. That�s where Evernote Food comes in. The free iPhone app helps you keep a visual diary of everything you eat with a clean and inviting interface. Check it out. When you sit down for a meal, tap the PLUS button to create a new entry. Now, tap the camera button to take photos of your food, what you�re drinking, who you�re with, and maybe a snapshot of the restaurant in general. Then, for every photo you can add a caption to describe exactly what it is. �Toasted, with hummus and basic veggies. No cheese! Loved it.� I�ll also say a few things about this glass of wine, so that the next time I�m at the store, I�m not struggling to remember which Zinfandels or Merlots I enjoy. Actually, if you�re a wine connoisseur, you can use this app for wine alone. Just take a photo of the label and say a few things about its flavor. Now once you�ve added all your photos and captions, add some info about where you ate the meal. Below that, add some tags like �bagel, wine, and lunch�. When you�re done, you can share this meal with friends online with these options here. Anyone watching their diet will also find this app useful. We�ve all heard that dieters who keep track of what they eat tend to lose more weight. This app could help you do just that. Evernote Food is only available on the iPhone right now, but the app�s development team is working on an Android version as we speak. If you have any great app suggestions, let me know on Twitter. For CNET, I�m Sharon Vaknin.
