1. Foodspotting

This application is a social network for food lovers. Here, people don’t like to be distracted by anything that is not related to food and places where you can taste something really delicious. Users leave reviews about cafes, restaurants, dishes, etc. They write about what they like or not, and recommend which restaurants, despite the attractive cozy interior, it is better to avoid. You can also upload photos of the places, the food and the drinks that you have tried.

With this app you can plan a trip to a restaurant or cafe beforehand, in order to diminish chances of being left disappointed. It is especially convenient if you travel abroad and don’t know much about the local cuisines.  I basically checked it on my new samsung galaxy s6 edge smartphone and was surprised to see the results it gave to me. Its a one of a kind solution if you are food lover like me.

2. Escoffier Cook’s Companion

The best kitchen assistant you’ll ever have. Firstly, there is a converter of weight and volume – degrees, ounces, pounds – so now you can try all the foreign recipes and fearlessly exploit these strange values to your benefit. Secondly, there is a timer, even a few, which will remind you that it’s time to get the dish out from the oven.

Thirdly, there is a glossary of ingredients, which helps understand what lies behind the beautiful names of ingredients in a foreign cuisine recipe book. In addition, there is a section where you can learn all about cooking utensils and how to use them properly.

3. My Fitnesspal

If you’re used to monitoring your calories and strictly follow the diet, then this is one of those mobile apps that will become a reliable assistant. There are more than 3 million items of food and their respective energy values.

Most importantly, it is available in off-line mode. So, you can count calories even when you are far away from civilization, somewhere in the campsite in the mountains, where there is no network. In addition to counting calories, this application can show how much carbohydrate, protein, unsaturated vegetable oils and animal saturated fats should be contained in a dish for your daily consumption.

In addition to counting calories, you can also compile a list of exercises for your personal physical training program.

4. AllRecipies

A handy application for searching recipes. The program picks up the dishes based on three main parameters: category, ingredients and cooking time. In addition, you can specify if you don’t want them to include meat, milk or flour, and the application will pick up a recipe that fits you the best. You can also do shopping lists and save the best dishes in your Favorites.

5. Cute my cake

The application helps cut a cake or a pizza into equal parts. To do this, point the camera at the dish, set the boundaries of the desired area, and specify the number of people at the party. The shape of the cake may be either circular or rectangular, and the number of pieces can also be arbitrary.

Celebrating Women’s Day with Technology

Women’s Day is not a day in which we will look at the women who have the knowledge and skill to use technology rather we will look into how some of this world’s earliest technological achievements have a direct relation to women and the role they play.

For example, let us take the example of Ada Lovelace. Who was she? She was the daughter of Lord Byron, who made notes on the analytical engine created by Charles Babbage. It was these notes that led to the creation of the first algorithm that could be used on a machine. Throughout this article, we will look into some of the main women who played an important role in the world of technology.

Sheryl Sandberg is one of the main players in Facebook that allowed it to become the giant it is now. She left Google in 2008 at the VP of Global Online Sales
and Operations at Google posts and joined the Facebook organization in 2008. When she entered the company, she brought along with their valuable experience as well as her desire to make profits. She helped turn Facebook into the multi-billion dollar company it is today and without her, who knows where they would lie.

Virginia Rometty became IBM’s first female CEO, even though it took the company some 30 odd years to do so. She became the Senior VP of the company and played an important role when they were acquiring Price waterhouse Coopers, which was thought to be a major project as the two companies varied in culture.

Marissa Mayer became Google’s first female engineer. She stuck by Google from the very beginning and now is the company’s VP of Location and Local Services. This is thought to be the bloodline for the company’s search business, which is advertising.

Many people are not aware of the fact that women play such a pivotal role in the technology arena, possessing some of the most important and senior roles in major companies. Without them, where would the world be?
