Between, I-Phones, Blackberries and the myriad other PDAs, food planning and shopping has been forever changed. Not only are you able to search for recipes right in the supermarket aisles based upon what’s on sale, but with the touch of a keypad you can use a calculator to figure out the best value for different sized packages or google conversion tables to help you adapt proportions from a meal for 2 to one for 5.
But that’s only part of it, if you want to find out more about a cut of meat or a type of cheese, all you need to do is do a search on it. Then, of course, there’s also the phone, which lets you call home to check to make sure you have the needed staples when memory fails.
There is no doubt that mobile technology is playing a more dominant role in all parts of our lives. Have you embraced when food shopping it or is a pen and pad still your method of preference? What is the most helpful way an app has served your supermarket experience?
