Food App Updates for May 30, 2012

By on Wednesday, May 30th, 2012

We understand that it’s not always easy to keep up with technology.

That’s why we’ve decided to begin posting regular round-ups of app updates, based on information provided by the developer. These are all apps that we’ve either reviewed in the past or were finalists in our most recent Food App Awards. Some of these updates are very small and others greatly enhance the functionality, look and feel of the app. With rare exception, all of the updates should be available free of charge and found within your device app store. From here on, our app reviews will include the version number of the app for easier reference.

Without further ado, here are this week’s updates.
