It is certainly true that technology (not just the iPhone) has changed how we find restaurants, order delivery, and even shop for groceries. But what about street food? Have you ever wondered whether it’s possible to keep tabs on your favorite mobile food vendors?

The answer, especially in New York City, is a resounding “YES!” Because mobile eating and mobile phones go perfectly hand-in-hand, it is quite easy to locate your favorite food trucks. After all, wouldn’t the food truck want to Tweet its temporary location in case of construction? Whether you are a NYC resident, a commuter from Connecticut, Long Island, or New Jersey, or simply a tourist who wants the best meal and New York experience $5 can buy, here are our recommendations to keep NYC’s food trucks under your thumb!

Sometimes I like to think back and try to remember what life was like before the iPhone. Though my memory is a bit hazy, I recall something about thick silver flip phones and too-small-to-function Nokia phones that could fit in the palm of your hand.

Now, ten years later, when I’m not obsessing over Instagram or playing lightsaber on my iPhone, I’m checking out my big foodie apps. I used to think it was cool your phone could tell you where to find a great burger. Now, our ability to order food in person is being replaced by a smartphone.

In the past two years, technology has become a million times more advanced and you, along with Siri, can pretty much rule the world with a swipe or two of your fingertips. So, feel free to replace that drawer of take-out menus in your kitchen – these days, all you need is your phone and these great apps to follow! Read More

It’s that time again, when we look back at all the time wasted and un-reached goals from the previous year as we look forward to the daunting list of new resolutions that we swear we’re going to keep. Here’s an idea- instead of setting a long list of unrealistic goals with virtually no hopes of accountability, why not make a resolution to not make resolutions? While that may seem completely contradictory, a new app called Anti-Resolution can help you attain your New Year’s plans through small daily actions instead of one or a few huge year-long goals.

How you ask? You first make a pledge to not make resolutions and then select 1 from 5  goals (quit a habit, lose weight, more family time, manage and reduce stress, or save money) that you’d like to achieve and then select smaller actions instead. Read More
