Top 8 | Food Apps for Apple Watch

I’ve often mentioned the effect different device have on the market for certain kinds of apps and innovations. The Apple Watch, for example, has inspired a huge amount of interest from the automobile industry, as companies clamber over one another to find a way to integrate new kinds of functionality to their wearable app, allowing you to control just about every aspect of your car from the comfort of your wrist, whether that be locking the doors, arming the alarm, and a whole lot more. I noticed a massive increase in the amount of incredible food and cooking related apps when the iPad was introduced, because it seemed that finally cooks had a proper multi purpose replacement for their cook book, which would allow them to store recipes and make alterations and all kinds, without ending up with a stack of papers that just got increasingly covered in flecks of cake mixture. While I don’t think the Apple Watch will have the same kind of exciting influence, it does make for some interesting developments. Here we take a look at the best food apps for the Apple Watch, including in the kitchen apps and those to find food around you.

Epicurious has always been known for its excellent in the kitchen app, and in particular for its inclusion of multi purpose timers that really give you a helping hand, especially when you’re cooking multiple items at once. The recent update to the Epicurious app for the Apple Watch focuses is on this smart functionality, so that you can monitor the status of stuff from your wrist, without the need to fish around for your iPhone with dirty hands.
