This pilot social media project has the potential to produce some extremely interesting results, such as feeding starving children in a Third World country, but there is also the potential to spiral out of control. These apps, still in the test phase, may not change the lives of all of humanity, but with only a few months to experiment and find out, they could have a sizeable impact on certain sections of social media. They do not currently have names, but this page will be your first point of reference. Here’s a select sampling.
Cheesi. Launched in Hong Kong in December 2017, it features a family photo and encourages users to choose which child in the picture represents their own. The app also allows you to invite friends to see photos and messages relating to your children.
DigChef. This in-app guide is available in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and the Netherlands, and focuses on the kitchen, not the family. It gives specific advice for meals made from scratch and cooks and stores recipes. Daily news about everyday life is available. It is a social media experiment.
DeliciousFeed. It is based in Belgium, and contains recipes and news about food and tastes from Belgium, France, Spain, Germany, and the Netherlands. Its goal is to provide a “one-stop site for the information about delicious food that you need when you are on the go.” It has an interactive map where users can save photos and discover where to find food.
TopSeats. This is based in Canada and features videos, recipes, and news about food, politics, and culture. It includes videos about meals to try for the week and the ability to “Like” videos and follow Twitter conversations to help keep a running source of food knowledge up to date.
Energi. This app focuses on getting you to try new things. It has a daily meal planner for daily eating and has recipes that are fit for all occasions. It has its own bar graph that helps get you motivated and reminds you that sometimes all it takes is a few new things to spice up your meals. It is available in China.
Food Anxiety Helper. This app is in beta testing, and functions as a resource for those that have experienced food allergies. It features a Google Search widget with the word “allergy” written in black-colored letters and the word “help” written in blue-colored letters and provides resources and information to help with different kinds of allergies, and provides information on which allergies can kill people.
Kitchen Story. This app is in beta testing and features more than 1,000 recipes that have been created by accomplished chefs and experienced writers. The app is available for Android and Windows Phone, and offers another option for content providers: meals in a story.
Diet Cat. A lot of people are avoiding food right now and this is probably a good idea, though you have to admit that finding a healthy, earth-friendly fast food option just got a little harder. This app helps you make the most of your money by giving you a great deal on food. It features a range of dishes and a worldwide option.
Flap. This app is in beta testing, and is powered by a sleek, swipeable interface, delivering recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks, all of which are available in 12 countries. The app’s focus is on the meals you are most likely to eat.
Narschipa. This app makes the selection process easy by cataloging recipes by popular emojis. Additionally, Narschipa features the “way of the ‘Qa’,” a translation of “rounding,” which was added to the Unicode 4 standard for 2017.
Request Your Recipe. This app was developed as a replacement for iTunes and Spotify by an Austrian developer and is available in seven languages including Spanish, German, English, Chinese, Portuguese, Italian, and Thai. If you want your traditional Italian recipe made into an online chart for your phone, you can do it.
