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.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
