5 must-have iphone apps for Aussie foodies

Print Friendly

1. Food Watch NSW (Free)
Fresh from the developers hands, this app uses data from the NSW Food Authority list. Maybe raising more awareness of the name and shame list will help restaurant owners realise just how severe their breach of food safety standards is! This smart app can pick up your location and show you nearby restaurants to steer clear of.
2. UrbanSpoon (Free)
What’s more fun than a pokie slot machine style app that helps you decide where to eat, what cuisine to try and how much to spend.
3. Sky Burger ($2.49)
A bit like Tower Bloxx, in this instance, you work your way up the corporate ladder by catching and stacking ingredients. This is my current obsession after Sally’s Spa and Restaurant City. (That is, Restaurant City on Facebook -the iPhone game doesn’t exist yet?)
4. FastFoodFinda Australia ($1.19)
On a roadtrip and desperately need to gorge on a burger and fries? FastFoodFinda can locate your nearest Hungry Jacks, Burger King, KFC, McDonald’s, Oporto, Red Rooster and Subway! It would be nice to see some independent fast food joints appear in here, but this app is sure to be handy when in an unknown territory.
5. Food Additives ($2.49)
An useful app for anyone with or shopping for someone with allergies or reactions to food additives. It’s a visual dictionary detailing the additive number, substance origin, general use, adequate daily intake, known side effects, dietary restrictions and countries unapproved for use. Handy as hell.
