Forq - the New Instagram Just for Foodies
Whether your Insta "theme" is #foodporn or you just love sharing a perfectly composed brunch shot, there's something so satisfying about sharing a beautiful pic of delicious food. Forq is a new app that caters to foodies of all stripes. Share your "snack shots" with the rest of the world and then spend the rest of the afternoon drooling over everyone else's treats. Think of Forq as an Instagram just for food with a few special upgrades. You can share your pics, "like" other people's beautifully plated dinners and include specific tags to label your photos. The app offers the option to scroll through your photos and will automatically save any food images to your draft folder so you can publish them with just a swipe of the finger.
Forq aims to be more than just a social media platform of artfully curated cappuccino photos. The company's mission, to “celebrate, share, and remember” food, means they are focused on the whole foodie experience. This extends to recipes. Forq will transcribe any recipe you take a picture of (whether handwritten or from a cookbook) and store it so you can review it later at the supermarket or share with friends. It will even calculate the nutritional facts and appropriate serving sizes for even your grandma's special pie recipe.
The cheery red and white interface is pretty straightforward. You can create a profile, include a photo and a bio, share recipes publicly or privately and organize them into themed "collections".
Maybe ease up on making your friends jealous with a shot of last night's perfectly plated dessert and head over to Forq and its community of foodies.
