Food Instagrams are their own niche, and Pepper is a new app that delivers.
Pepper is a new app that’s getting a lot of attention these days, and while it might not be the all-purpose platform that some other sites are, it seems to gain popularity, anyway.
Pepper is a fun, food-focused social media app that's simpler to use than Instagram, but with more passion than Pinterest. With Pepper you can easily create an account, like and comment on tasty photos of food, share your own creations and connect with other people who really care about food.
Discovering new recipes is fun
Pepper combines the browsing experience of Instagram with the recipe sharing and community building inherent in other social media platforms. It lets you scroll through posts on one feed and go through the “global” community on another—you can think of that as your homepage. Clicking through each post lets you like, comment, or save those posts, similar to the user experience on Instagram.
People get really excited about sharing their food and telling you how much they loved it
Once you know what you're cooking, it's as easy as filling in the details of cooking time, number of servings, and level of difficulty, as well as step-by-step instructions that may include photos as you go. If you try someone else's recipe you found on the app, you can just search for it to link back to the original recipe page and you'll get all those details right in your post. Before posting, you can also tag it with ingredients, dietary needs, allergies, cooking skills, and anything else that might improve the search. Ultimately, it's not that different from the social media posts you're used to.
Food-focused social media apps are less toxic than non-food-focused ones
If you're a home chef and/or food lover looking for something to fill the void, give Pepper a shot. You won't have time for dooms-scrolling with such delicious recipes right in your feed.
