An app you must taste

Make eye pleasing food or location videos with Tastemade app

Tastemade is a fun app that gives you a step-by-step process for making professional-looking food or location videos. The videos are only a minute long, but they give you a great platform to sing praises of your favourite restaurants and hot spots.

Tastemade isn't just about making video reviews; it's also about finding new spots from other users. Since the app has been available on both iOS and Android for some time, it has a large catalogue of reviews to explore.

The best way to get started with Tastemade is to browse videos made by other people. Watching a few videos will give you a sense of the pacing and help you come up with ideas for good shots. You'll quickly see that some people have a flair for being on camera, but even when they don't, the app's step-by-step process manages to make just about anyone look good.

You start by entering the name of the location or restaurant, then pick from several different themes that include different fonts and background music choices. After the title and theme, you'll need to shoot a 10-second video where you introduce the location, followed by five shorter clips that show the restaurant's ambiance and style. At that point, you return to the screen for 15 seconds to talk more about the dishes you got, then shoot an additional five clips of you and your friends enjoying the food. Finally, a quick 10-second video wraps up your Tastemade video.

What's cool about Tastemade is you don't have to worry too much about making a mistake, because you can always delete the last scene and shoot it again if you need another take. Tastemade is a refreshingly fun and unique app that's great for talking about your favourite spots while finding new ones from other users.
