It’s summer time for many of us which means it’s the ideal time for a barbeque! So, it’s pretty good timing to see the launch of grill maker Weber’s official recipe app: Weber Grills.
Weber Grills offers over 75 different recipes, delivered to your iOS device every Friday, just in time for the weekend. Each recipe comes with full-color photos, a list of ingredients, recipe notes, reviews and the option to share via e-mail. In each case, they’re ideal for making on any kind of grill.
A prep school section goes one step further in aiding keen chefs with guides to all the essentials such as knife skills, food preps and how to tell when something’s cooked thoroughly. Videos of how to master favorites such as steak or ribs are also included.
For the keen barbequer, Weber Grills should prove an invaluable source.

Wine is a great delight to drink. To many, it’s as great a joy to collect as it is to drink. Such people might be rather pleased to see an app such as My Wine Cellar which aims to help them keep track of their collection in an attractive and useful way.
The app which is currently available for free, allows users to track their wine from purchase to wine tasting notes. Designed by Australian fine wine supplier, Oz Bouquet, the app is clearly designed precisely for the wine drinker’s interest.
For each bottle, the user is able to add information such as the name, brand, vintage, category such as if it’s a sparkling wine and the country of origin. Users can then add more personal information such as when they took a drink of it, an appropriate occasion, the price and any other notes such as how it tasted. This can be further enhanced by adding ratings out of 5 stars for color, smell, taste and the overall manner of the wine.
For easy consultation, users can customize each bottle with the relevant shape, color and label to aid as a quick reference tool. It’s easy enough to get everything set up just how the user wants things to be laid out, and the interface makes for an attractive wine cellar style look.
Besides being great for the individual user to quickly check their collection, My Wine Cellar could be a great tool at a dinner party. Users could demonstrate to their friends their collection so that they can easily check what wine they fancy trying with their meal. Or of course, the owner can always simply gloat at their impressive collection.
Finally, there’s the ever trusty ability to share wine notes via Facebook, Twitter and e-mail.
My Wine Cellar is out now for all iOS devices and it’s a free download.
