Evernote Food, which was launched in 2011, is a food-focused app similar to Evernote, which allowed users to capture food pictures, recipes and everything related to food and then store it on the device. But now sadly, Evernote has decided to shut down the app, and you won’t be able to access or sync anything as of Sept. 30.
“Food’s most popular features were clipping recipes and snapping photos of meals. Today, our core Evernote apps and Evernote Web Clipper have evolved to do both of these things very well. As of September 30th, we’ll no longer support Evernote Food for iOS and Android.”
Before it shuts down for forever, you need to make sure the data you have saved in Evernote Food is backed up to your Evernote account. If you have saved something to the Food app but then later forgot to sync it, then now is a good time to sync it to your Evernote account.
Syncing data from Evernote Food
Syncing data from Evernote Food to the Evernote app is very easy, but the process varies by platform. Andorid users need to simply launch the app and then tap on the “Sync” button at the bottom of the screen. iOS users need to first tap on the elephant icon and then tap on the “Sync Now” button.
Once you do this, it is a good idea to check that your data is indeed safe. To do this, log in to Evernote using a browser or the app and check if all your data is present there. Note that the data will appear in the notebook you have chosen under your Meal Notebook in the settings. If you are not able to find the data, then you can also use Evernote’s search feature to find it.
Evernote also recommends some alternatives to try now that its Food app is shutting down. “If you enjoyed using Food, please give Web Clipper a spin for collecting recipes and cooking inspiration and try Evernote for capturing your favorite meal experiences.”
