Love taking pictures of your food? Then you’ll love the new app Foodie

If your Instagram account, Facebook Timeline, and Twitter feed are more of an homage to your love for food than anything else (no judgment, mine is too), get ready for your world to be upended in the best way possible. The LINE Corporation, the same company that brought you the sticker-centric messaging app that has greatly improved my communication skills, has released a new camera app called “Foodie,” dedicated to taking delicious photos of food.

The free app recognizes our collective obsession with documenting the delicious things we’re about to consume (because honestly, no one cares about what you did over your vacation as much as what you ate), and as such, “offers a cornucopia of features with a singular goal: to make food pictures more delicious.”

Featuring 24 food filters including “Meat,” “Sushi,” and “Cake,” you can rest assured that, no matter what’s on your plate, you’re going to get a pretty phenomenal and mouth-watering shot of it. The app’s “best angle” feature makes it easy for the amateur and professional photographer alike to determine when the camera is positioned perfectly above the subject. And the result is that now, taking gourmet food shots is a breeze. 

Foodie also includes an auto blurring effect to give images an SLR photography feel, as well as brightness adjustment and flashlight features that give the user more shooting options. And of course, Foodie will connect to all your other social media accounts, allowing you to share your newly perfected food photography skills with your Instagram following.

In the coming months, Foodie says its team will keep creating food-specific features, including filters and effects, that will ultimately make for “more enjoyable and enriching communication experiences through food photos.” 

So what are you waiting for? Take your food photos to the next level with this free iOS and Android app, and make your followers’ mouths water.

this new canon photo app has a neat trick up its sleeve culling

With smartphone cameras now so advanced, most of us ditched our compact cameras long ago. The ease with which we can fire up a smartphone camera and take a snap means many of us are now taking a lot of photos. That's all well and good, but unless you’re a stickler for photo management, you can quickly end up with masses of subpar images that take up a large chunk of your phone's storage space.

With that in mind, Japanese camera giant Canon has come up with a new app for iOS designed to automatically whip your photo library into shape.

You’ll be ordering food with QR code menus long after the pandemic ends
A QR code opens a digital restaurant menu

Dining out at a restaurant used to be a break from busy routines -- and technology. It was a faux pas to spend a meal staring at your phone. But with coronavirus continuing to spread across the U.S., dining at a restaurant is now a potentially risky decision. Plastic shields guard the host stand and your friendly waiter’s face is now half-covered by a mask. The solution to a more enjoyable and safer experience could be the very thing you tried to avoid when dining, however: Your phone.

QR codes are experiencing a comeback as a way to eliminate shared menus which could spread the virus between customers -- and your dining experience may never be the same.
How QR code menus work
QR codes -- which use a scannable design of black and white squares -- have been in widespread use since the mid-2010s. The code, when scanned using your smartphone’s camera, will open a link, in this case to a restaurant’s menu page.
