    "Anyone who knows food probably knows who Jamie Oliver is! His recipes are easy to make with relatively simple ingredients and are always delicious! This simple app is perfect to start the week off with a selection of some of Jamie's recipes to pick and choose from to make over the week. The selection is always new, fun and exciting. If you are a foodie or you just like cooking good food, then this is a wonderful app to explore."

    "I am a foodie and I think being a foodie these days is more than just being a food nut. Being a foodie means socializing with your friends about food. Luckily, I found a great app on google play called Foodie. This app will help you create great photographs and share all the great times you have with your friends using convenient shortcuts for Facebook, Twitter and Instagram."

DID YOU KNOW?

Hey foodies! Although it's an old cliche, did you know that the best way to experience a culture is really through its food? Well, there are other reasons why people travel and perhaps, eating will always be the best part. A perfect example would be China. China is known to maintain harmony in every aspect of life and it really manifests on their cuisine. And since it is home to a lot of herbs and spices, they always try to achieve a balanced touch of every taste. They make sure every delicacy has the right blend of sweetness, saltiness, and spice.

Let's also face that aside from the actual taste of food travelers are getting more in love with exciting food experiences because they want to share it to the world. By sharing, it means taking photographs of food and making sure the pictures will make everyone else drool. The most interesting part is everyone else could see their post on Instagram because of their hashtag FoodPorn--and no, that's not the explicit kind. Another trend when it comes to food experience today is the growing demand for food delivery apps services. Well, nobody could blame the millennials for the increasing demand in this fast-paced life. Ultimately, no matter where country you are in, it is always a must to have the best food apps out there. They just come so handy, well, of course, provided your internet data on. For ins

    "The Cookpad app seems like a very convenient way to store your recipes, without taking up time and as much focus as it would need to physically create your lists. You could also easily correct errors, and more easily store and move your memos. It seems to be a very spacious app with many features, even including a photo option to easily add photo memos to what you've stored. I like this a lot! I hate writing down lists personally, I bake a lot and I prefer using technology to reliably make my life easier."

    "If you are a foodie there are many apps available for you that cover all kinds of angles of the foodie scene or lifestyle if you will. I was looking particularly for something devoted towards wine (beer and spirits are also covered!). For someone who isn't the most knowledgeable about wine, the Delectable app is perfect! With it, I can just simply take a pic of the label and then get the wines description, rating, and I can then even buy it if I enjoy what I'm seeing. If you are a wine enthusiast or someone just trying to learn and experience new wines, beers, or even the many kinds of spirits, then check out the Delectable app for sure!"

    "Wow this app has a little bit of everything if you're into wine, but I can't help but think that it goes a little overboard. I compared what it was showing me to what I could just google search for, and there didn't seem to be a significant difference. The $3 fee to use it after the trial might be worth it if you want to have everything more quickly accessible, though!"

    "Drync is an app for people that like to keep track of the different wines they've had. It would be cool if it expanded into food also, so you could keep track of memorable meals. Not the best app for foodies unless you're also really into wine."

    "I am a wine connoisseur in my spare time. Since this is merely a hobby for me, I need a quick way to purview reviews of popular wines. I search the app store and Wine Enthusiast Tasting Guide app has all the latest reviews and recommendations from the worlds leading experts on wines. This app is very niche and it will definitely please the inexperienced wine lover. "

    "I felt that the user interface wasn't very intuitive and was difficult to use. I might have become comfortable with it over time, but apps aren't supposed to have long learning curves. This app could really stand to be redesigned; then I might find it useful. As it is, however, I uninstalled it."

    "I like food and I like wine, but I have never been the best at pairing them so they compliment. Specific foods require different wine, and Hello Vino offers a wide database of complimentary flavors for my favorite foods. I enjoy that it allows for customization and detail in a way that gives me the best tasting experience I can have."

    "Great app if you're looking only for the best breweries and beer venues. However, as I was looking for an app for foodies, something more general with more substance probably would have been better. Breweries generally don't have the best food so I'd like something that looks for the top restaurants for example. "
