While after a discussion we at Android Police were unable to determine exactly why Evernote couldn't implement the functionality of its newest Android app, Food, into the existing Evernote app, we were able to settle on one thing: people take too many pictures of the things they eat. Evernote Food wants you to do this more, though, and has a veritable cornucopia of tools at your disposal to make you the ultimate delicacy documentarian.

In all seriousness, this does look to be a pretty good app for creating your own visual, step-by-step recipes (you can take photos and caption them as you go), something I can appreciate. Evernote's description also points out that it could be useful for tracking food intake, though there are pretty obviously many more well-tailored apps out there for such things.

More than anything, though, this is an app for documenting, recounting, and sharing your experience at various eateries. It has location services via FourSquare, tagging, and allows you to share your food albums through Facebook, Twitter, and email. So, for those manically obsessed with telling their friends about what restaurant they ate at last night or the "unbelievable latte art at this little café that just opened up," this app is a godsend. All in all, it's well-designed, does have some useful functions, and latte art aside, we're always happy to see something new from the Evernote team.

    This app is pretty amazing for what it does and it is better than the Evernote app at doing it. However they should have just put the functionality into the Evernote app, call it Events (as in "create a new Event" next to "create a new Note") and use it like a template for cataloguing anything with pictures and notes happening at a specific place and time.

    There is a really great app under the surface here, unfortunately the Evernote team didnt realise the potential of what they created and have thus pitched it at a really niche customer pool.
