Screen Shot 2013-03-06 at 5.06.43 PM

Mmmmm… Chipotle. Nothing quite does it like a good burrito from the best Mexican grill around.

Did you know that Chipotle had an iPhone app? Well it does, and that app allows you to order from your iPhone and skip the line when you arrive to inhale your burrito goodness. It’s a beautiful idea, but the app itself has not been so beautiful for the past few years.

Basil: The iPad’s Best Recipe App Is About To Get Even Better [Preview]

The recipe view: Now with thumbnails.

Nigella’s New Italian Food App Leaves A Bad Taste [Review]

Turns out Nigella quite likes Italian food

Co-inciding with her latest TV series, Nigella Lawson’s latest foodie app, Nigellissima is now on the App Store. The theme is simple, delicious Italian food. Nigella, as always, makes amazing dishes look effortless.

Use Your iPhone To Get In Shape And Lose Some Weight [Feature]

There are a ton of ways to get fit and lose weight. And there are even more stupid books and fad diets that may or may not help you to slim down and get healthier. But there are really only two things you need to do: eat less and do more.
