Yummi App Brings New Opportunities for Food Porn

Foodies take heart. The new Yummi app brings about an innovative way to share food experiences off of Instagram's rigid format. It enables a steady, tracked production of food porn thanks to integration of a social aspect. For those who frequently indulge in restaurant outings, like to plan meals for the week, or simply want to scope out tasty looking menu additions, Yummi helps with all that and more. This multi-faceted app covers two major avenues: restaurant eating and home cooking.

Instilling familiarity with Yelp- and Tinder-esque qualities, Yummi has added some special features to improve food-sharers experience; multiple images can be added (to better showcase one dish or include multiple ones), posts can be toggled between public and private, save favourite images or places for later, and, if you're feeling uninspired, take advantage of recommended posts.

Posts can be searched by location, cuisine type, hashtag, or, for simplicity's sake, swiping right will pull up nearby recommended posts. Thanks to geo-tagging and location services via Google, posts are automatically sorted by location, whether posting anew or searching the database. All posts are organized in chronological order according to the time the picture was taken, not the time of posting.

For those wanting to save money and rein in eating habits by cooking at home, meal planning will quickly become Yummi's most valuable tool. Conveniently displayed on a calendar (as shown above), food shots are organized in a visually appealing, tiled masterpiece of mouthwatering delight. Expanding on the social aspect, Yummi isn't concerned with users one-upping each other with beautiful food pictures. Recipe-sharing is a very real part of this tantalizingly tasty experience.

In many ways, Yummi has personalized food-sharing. Any posts made are logged in your food journal which can be viewed at any time. Rather than having their precious moments in food history buried under the cumulative posts of the community, users can peruse forgotten meals, look over past restaurant visits, or browse a similarly-minded person's journal.

This app is currently available on iOS only. Let's pipe our hot cross buns and hope Android gets the royal treatment in the future.
