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.
