Food Discovery App Burpple Adds Photo-Editing With Six Filters

Right on the heels of the kerfuffle over Instagram’s privacy policy, food journaling and discovery app Burpple has released its new Burpple Camera, which features six filters (named Tapas, Loco Moco, Tiramisu, Teriyaki, Masala and Latte) specifically designed to enhance photos of food and a tilt-shift blur effect.

In addition, the Singapore-based startup has also introduced enhanced sharing capabililities for Facebook and Twitter. Facebook users can choose to share their food pics and journal entries to a page or their personal timeline directly form the app, and Twitter users with multiple accounts can select the one they want to use. Burpple already used Foursquare to suggest restaurants based on your location, uploads and “reburps,” or dishes you like and share from other users.


Earlier this month, Burpple received $500,000 in seed funding from Neoteny Labs and QuestVC. The startup is intently focused on developing its global growth strategy. The ability to edit photos directly from the app is a great addition to Burpple has users in 115 countries who have shared over 170,000 dishes and will, no doubt, help it attract users who had previously been using Instagram to document their tastiest meals.
