Use the Meat Cuts app to identify various cuts of red meat, and get tips on how to cook them.

If you have trouble recognising your rump from your tenderloin, you probably need the Meat Cuts app, which gives you a visual breakdown of the different parts of beef, lamb, veal, and goat. Yes, goat. (Our Mobile Editor, Tony Ibrahim loves goat.)

The app has been launched by Meat & Livestock Australia (MLA) and is available from the App Store for Apple, or from Google Play for Android -- no meaty love for Windows Phone, it seems. The main goal of the app is to allow you to more easily identify the various cuts of red meat that are available, and how to cook them in the most ideal way.

Unless you’re a dedicated carnivore, you might be surprised at the large number of meat cuts that are available, with the app showcasing 41 beef cuts, 25 lamb cuts, 21 veal cuts, and 20 goat cuts. You get a visual on the app so you can see exactly where the cut originates.

Seeing meat cuts visually drawn on animals might even have the opposite effect of putting you off eating that cute little lamb or goat. But for the most part, it looks like a delicious little app that will come in handy while deciding what to buy while staring at the meat fridges in the supermarket.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
