Spinning Meals in an app that's meant to take the guess work out of planning meals for a week. By mapping out meals, acting as a recipe database, and keeping tracking of necessary ingredients, the app intends to be a one-stop shop for people who are in change of organizing meals for the week.

The app handles planning all 3 meals for as little as 1 day and for as many as 7 days. The settings of the app allow users to specify certain meals to spin for or not spin for.

Meals consist of multiple recipes and are the main focus of the app. Currently, there aren't many recipes in the app, but users have the option to add their own recipes, complete with ingredients, instructions, and notes. The recipes have an estimated preparation and cook time associated with them, which allows the app to plan shorter meals on specified days.

The app automatically creates a nicely formatted shopping list with all the ingredients needed for the planned meals. The groceries are organized according to type and tapping an ingredient indicates in what recipe it will be used.

Spinning meals combines the various tasks of planning and making meals. The app will definitely appeal to people who hate deciding what to eat. Hopefully in the future more recipes will be bundled with the app or the ability to download recipes from websites will be added.

Let Alfred Be Your Meal Advisor

I can't even count the number of times when I have been sitting around with my fiance on a balmy weekend day and asked the question, "Where should we go for supper tonight?"  While we don't eat out on what might be thought of as a frequent basis, when we do decide to venture out we tend to not take any risks in our dining destinations.  Let's face it, there is nothing worse than rolling the dice on an eating establishment and getting let down.

For this very reason the new iOS app Alfred was born.  Based on receiving a list of a user's favorite eating establishments, it goes to work finding new places that might suit their fancy.  No matter the type of meal, Alfred will have a solid recommendation of a place to get a bite, on any budget.

Is this some new form of dark magic?  Highly unlikely.  But I can tell you with all assurances that it could change eating habits forever.  Give this free app a download and let us know what you think of it in the comments.
