21 iPhone Food Apps

Mashable had a great post this week featuring 21 different iPhone food apps. Here's a little preview of the only food app that I've actually been able to try. For details on the other apps check out Mashable's post.

Urban Spoon is a free app that's actually fun. It's a slot machine application that lets you choose your price range and what type of food you're craving. Once you've selected your criteria you literally shake the iPhone and it gives you a list of results near you. My mom and I had already decided what restaurant we wanted to go to and wanted to put Urban Spoon to the test. So we entered our critera and it actually selected the restaurant we had just decided on! Perfect!
