-- Memorable Meals is a new app for iPhone and iPod touch that is designed specifically for the food loving soul who wants to remember their best meal experiences, at home or while dining out. The way this stylish little app is designed makes it easy and fast for foodies to create memory-jogging records of their meals.
The secret of this speedy app is the way it reduces the need for tedious finger typing on a small screen. Using a clever combination of photos, voice memos, checkboxes,
and single-tap “quick notes”, users can make a record in seconds. The ability to edit meal records later satisfies the thorough type who may want to add recipes, web addresses and such. Either way, the app creates a list of favorite dishes that are searchable for ideas and inspiration. For those who like to share, emailing favorite meals to friends and family is easy, and including the photo and voice memo can be fun. Facebook and Twitter sharing is being implemented now and will be included in the next free update.
It’s nice to see simplicity and good design used to solve one of life’s little problems. Adding complex features isn't always the answer. After all, a true foodie would much rather spend time savoring the roasted duck, than typing about it.
