Evernote Food comes out of the oven and it’s delicious

As if you needed another reason to use Evernote, the developers today announced a new application/ feature for Android users.  It’s called Evernote Food and it’s designed to help you capture everything you could imagine as it relates to food.  Recipes, photos of restaurants, notes from dinner conversations, a copy of your receipt.  EVERYTHING.


It might be more appropriate to term this app as a gateway to Evernote’s larger, more robust note-taking/photo capturing app but we could care less.  We simply love how easy it is to snap a picture of sushi (Hi Kenji!) and toss a few notes in for good measure.  Not only that, but the geo-location and sharing feature ensures that you can direct your friends directly to that hidden dive that you won’t shut up about.

The number of things you can do with Evernote Food is quite extensive and the way you use it is entirely up to you.  Evernote has a few ideas for inspiration however they’re just tips.  You could be a total jerk and keep everything to yourself, locked away in your private Evernote account and that’s just fine, too.

  • Remember the food and meals you love.
  • Snap and organize photos of your food, setting and fellow diners to make a beautiful photo essay of your meals.
