Evernote Food is a free mobile app for “preserving and reliving” memorable food experiences. Initially released for iOS, Evernote Food has recently made its way onto Android and you can now download it for free from Google Play.

Like all Evernote apps, Evernote Food syncs your information with Evernote’s cloud service. While you could always log your meals using the stock Evernote client, the Evernote Food application features a purpose-built interface that makes the process more fun and engaging (if a bit more cumbersome).

You can add multiple images for each meal, so it’s easy to document each dish. Unlike the regular Evernote client, Evernote Food puts images front and center, and lets you swipe between them in a miniature slideshow.

The main note list is different than the one used in the regular app as well, and emphasizes images while displaying the full title of each note, even if it’s lengthy. You can also individually title each image, so you can note which dish it was.

Finally, Evernote Food crops images using a square aspect ratio, and lets you specify the resolution. Using 640×640 yields perfectly usable images while conserving space on your Evernote account, so you will be able to record hundreds of images each month without running out of your monthly storage quota. All in all, a worthy addition to the Evernote family, especially if you like dining out or maintaining a diet food log.

    I have this app for the iPhone but I have to admit to being a bit embarrassed at photographing my food in restaurants. I have a friend who does that all the time in restaurants and I cringe when I see bemused people staring.

    I would only really take pictures of really unique dishes. Not normal regular everyday food. What would be the point?

      Well, I use it to track my diet, which works really well. But yeah, it can produce some awkward moments.

      Then again, one nice thing about Evernote Food is that you can take pictures in in portrait mode (the regular Evernote doesn't allow this), so it's a bit less awkward because maybe you're texting. ;)

      TBH, I like it. Logging my food and my weight lets me customize my own diet. If I notice I've lost some weight last month and stopped losing this month, I can go back in time and see exactly what I did differently. And yes, I also log my exercise. :) Not logging my WC visits... yet!
