Urbanspoon has now completely merged with Zomato! In case you haven’t noticed,all my previous Urbanspoon buttons have now auto-converted to Zomato ones. You can read my previous introduction to Zomato here.

I’m very excited for this change. Urbanspoon has needed a facelift for years. Zomato makes eating out much like a social network. The layout is beautiful and there are even curated recommendations. You can bookmark places to try out later, call for reservations or even book an Uber to the restaurant with the app.

If you used to follow me on Urbanspoon, you can now find me on Zomato at https://www.zomato.com/tianafeng.

So, my sister and I tried the latest app trend. My Idol, which takes a photo of you and turns you into a weird 3D character. This is me. Creepy right?

Is Your Site Mobile Friendly?

Last week, Google fully rolled out their new mobile friendly search algorithm. This means that for now on, if your site isn’t mobile friendly, it will affect where you stand in the search rankings. Google now marks if sites are mobile friendly when you search for stuff on your smartphone browser.

By default, most WordPress sites can be adopted to mobile screens automatically if you allowed it in your theme settings. In order for a site to be considered mobile-friendly, its text has to be readable without tapping and zooming, its tap targets need to be spaced out appropriately, and the page avoids unplayable content or horizontal scrolling.

You can test if your site is mobile friendly with this handy tool.

Prints from Origrami

As much as I love the ease of digital photography, I still love the feeling of holding a photograph so I printed some of my Instagram photos through Australian site, Origrami.

They were delivered rather quickly by mail (considering I live in Canada). The photos came in an adorable camera shaped box with a branded tag inside.

I ordered the Squareprintswhich were $22.95 AUD for 36 photos. The back of the photos had either a map (if a location was tagged) or a colourful camera logo along with your Instagram likes and comments. I really loved that idea as a backside since it provided a way to make my digital memories analog!
