iPad app for recipes

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone,

I really hope I'm posting this in the right topic. I wanted to know if anyone of you uses any app for recipes ?? I am just starting using iPad in the kitchen to replace my old computer which is much more practical but I'm still thinking about how to keep my recipes organized . Any ideas?


Cheers.

Paprika is popular for a recipe centric app. 

 

My prefernces are for less format specific things. I've enjoyed Evernote for it's plain text simple portability and how it syncs to the cloud, my compouter and my phone/tablet automatically. Supports pictures, Word documents, searchable pdf and more depending on if you use the free or the paid versions. Free does an awful lot. There are other similar apps as well. Google Keep, Microsoft One Note and so on. 

 

Dropbox can do a lot of this for you too if you're more hands on in file management. 

 

Some other thoughts:

I use a lot of apps in the kitchen. I can never have enough recipes in my database. I'll list a few I use the most and why.

 

Epicurious- smooth running app, lots of inspiration for recipe creating/menu planning. Very thorough searching feature to find exact recipes from time to cook, what course, dietary considerations, season or occasion

 

Recipe by Ingredients- a good tool for finding recipes from a list of ingredients although most food apps have this feature, this one is fast to use on the fly.

 

Allrecipes- A very comprehensive database of recipes with good search results. 

 

Foodgawker lite- very good for inspiration on all types of food trends, picture based browsing and sorting results by category. 

 

Allthecooks- great for finding homespun recipes

 

whole foods market- nice collection of trendy recipes.

 

If you only get two apps I would suggest Epicurious and Allrecipes. They each offer great features and pick up where the other lacks in types of recipes. Hope this helps!
