SAN FRANCISCO, April 19, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The gawkerverse announced today the launch of its first iPhone app based on the popular foodgawker.com site. The mobile version of foodgawker allows users to "feed their eyes" on a stunning collection of mouth-watering food photography in the quest for their next edible adventure.
In relying on visual browsing, the new foodgawker app transforms the way food enthusiasts seek culinary inspiration, moving beyond mundane keyword searches and encouraging visual exploration of evocative food images submitted by food bloggers themselves.
"Allowing you to visually connect with the images on foodgawker sets this app apart from standard recipe apps by eliminating the need to know ahead of time what ingredients you want to use or what the final dish will be," explains Chuck Lai, founder of the gawkerverse network of curated sites. "foodgawker lets the images themselves guide you in finding dishes, ingredients and even techniques that inspire you."
With a simple tap of the screen, each photo posted to the foodgawker app leads deeper into the foodie world, providing access to the recipes, stories and trends behind each image. Registered users can compile a list of favorites, which they can sync between the mobile app and foodgawker.com. Users also have the ability to visually browse by most recent, most clicked and most favorited photos. Over one hundred new photos are added each and every day, assuring that users are searching the freshest content available.
