What's coming up at FoodTribe? Tell us what you want to see!

An app, help for recipe creators and a whole lot more…

2y ago

FoodTribe is almost ready to be pulled out of the oven and shared with anyone who likes eating. Hopefully that's you. Otherwise you'll not last long.

We have some very exciting new parts of FoodTribe launching in the next few weeks, and we wanted to keep you in the loop with what's going on. Without further ado, here's a bit of a roadmap for FT.

An app is our top priority

We're aware that posting food photos is easiest from your phone. That's why we've locked our developers in a room and are feeding them many, many coffees. They're hard at work on a FoodTribe mobile app, and also a better mobile browser experience. The latter will likely come first, but the app is well in development.

Here's a sneak peek:

All you recipe writers have a good thing coming

We know lots of you are waiting for a better way to share your favourite recipes – and we're hard at work on a nice recipe module. It'll be an extra element to add to your articles in Studio. It'll look something like this:

Not used Studio yet?

Studio is FoodTribe's built-in content creation tool, and it's open for everyone to use, so give it a try! Just click on your profile in the top-right of the screen and click 'Create in Studio', then 'New post'. The 'article' content type is the most flexible, but you can also upload single videos and photos, polls and – our favourite – quizzes.

Earn some money by writing

On DriveTribe, our best creators earn a bit of money each month for the articles they write, and that's something we want to continue on FoodTribe. If you're interested, email tim@drivetribe.com for more details after you've published a couple of posts on FoodTribe.

  • To be honest I expected this a long time ago. After all when the DriveTribe platform was launched we learned that the platform would be used for other themes aswell. And now the first one is there. My Congratulations to the entire team which made this possible.

    There need to be some tweaking here and there to finish the final details. For example the page with terms and policies is referring still to DriveTribe. The page "Earn money from your posts" is fully DriveTribe and even takes you there. Without using the back button of your browser there's no way back from that page.

    But the platform seems to be working great and with this first step in "another world" I would like to wish you all the best.

  • This is so exciting! There's a great community on Drivetribe so I'm looking forward to everyone's creations on here. Will creating tribes be the same process where we request them?

    • Hi Amanda! The plan is to create a set of open Tribes that anyone can post in – if there's something you think we're missing though please let us know!

  • Since I come from a family that specializes in southern/soul food, I would like to bring that here. I haven’t seen any tribes about it yet 🙂
