App Debuts


Noteworthy new app releases and updates, handpicked by the MacStories team.


If you’ve ever found yourself in Italy and wanting to understand what’s written on a restaurant menu (okay fine, not just Italy, but let me have this), Cibo is a new app created by Jordi Bruin that lets you search for pictures of food by just pointing at the menu with your iPhone’s camera. Think of Cibo as Live Text meets Translate and Google Images: the camera scans the menu, recognizes text, and allows you to select the dish you want to see pictures for. I love this idea; just keep in mind that “fettuccine Alfredo” isn’t a thing and you should never get those.
