Now that Evernote Food is on Android, you can join your iOS friends in taking pictures of your meals, the restaurants where you eat them, and the people you are with, and saving it all on your Evernote account.
To get started with Evernote Food, you first have to log in with your Evernote account. If you don't have one, it's free and works across all of Evernote's products. Next, hit the "+" button up top to pull up the New Meal screen, where you can add pictures (as many as you like), captions, tags, location (powered by Foursquare), and other pertinent information about your meal. The app can even help you out if you leave your title field blank by generating a title based on the time of day and location of your meal. Once you're done, your meal note will go right into your Meal List, which you can search through by keyword, location, and more.
Because Evernote Food is part of the Evernote family, everything you save is automatically synced across all of the other Evernote mobile apps that you use. You can also access your Food notes through your Evernote account on the Web. One nice feature that takes advantage of this seamless connection is Related Notes. At the bottom of every meal screen, the app shows you other notes in your Evernote account that it thinks are related based on location, time, or other factors.
Thanks to Android's robust, built-in sharing menu, you can use Evernote Food to send meal details to friends using pretty much any other social app you have installed. The app sends a unique URL, so any of your friends (Evernote users or not) can see a beautifully laid-out Web page with all of your meal details as well as the gallery of pictures you uploaded. This is a nice touch that I can see a lot of foodies taking advantage of.
So far, I'm impressed with Evernote Food for Android. It's easy to use, runs smoothly, and looks attractive with its use of the slick Android Action Bar up top. Also, its powerful meal-sharing tool is something that I can see catching on. Whether you eat out a lot or cook at home, if you love keeping track of your meals, Evernote Food is a must-have.
