iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad
Cookbook and recipe apps aren’t exactly new to iOS. However, Recipe Kitchen doesn’t aim to be just any old recipe app.
Many of the expected features are present in Recipe Kitchen; such as a sizable selection of food items to make, recipe sharing, and cooking timers. However, it can also keep track of all the ingredients you have in your kitchen. You can scan barcodes to add new items, create shopping lists for what you’re running low on and sync it to multiple devices (so that other family members will know what to pick up while they’re out), and even call up a list of recipes that are available based on what ingredients you currently have available.
Sounds super-handy, no?
It’s a free cake community app for enthusiasts to share pictures and recipes as well as connect with other fanatics, and it won’t leave users feeling hungry for more since it has plenty of features.

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.
It’s out now and it’s free.
It’s the ideal time of year to try out something new, so why not make that Pakistani cuisine? A new app by the name of Cookery Magazine HD provides all the inspiration anyone could need for South Asian cooking.
The app offers over 22 recipes, each with high quality images. Alongside that are articles on women’s health issues such as pregnancy, as well as offering home remedies for various situations.
The crux of the app comes from the recipes themselves though. Just a glance below at the screenshots demonstrates just how attractive the magazine app is. Soups and salads, vegetable dishes, sea food, rice, snacks and meat dishes are all catered for here with recipes like pasta salads included as well as meals such as the spicy Beef Karahi and Tehri Pulao.
It’s appetizing to just think about and laid out in a very appealing manner.
Cookery Magazine HD is out now priced at $0.99.
There’s no question that the iPad has changed, or at least begun to change, the way we create and consume media as well as organize our personal and professional lives. One app new on the App Store that promises to help with this is Forms by PBF. The company has pegged it as the personal database for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch with the ability to create custom applets without writing a line of code.
It features an in-app function called Forms Builder, which makes it extremely easy to create highly customized forms. Easy to setup, the app allows the user to define the data that they’d like to organize and create a custom form for projects such as a recipe list, sales charts, workout schedules or even an inventory manager. It also allows the user to share their database between multiple devices by simply exporting and then importing or over-the-air with use of a URL that can be clicked on the additional device for instant access. The Forms app is universal and available on the App Store for $9.99.
We loved iCookbook when it was covered here earlier this year. With plenty of visually appealing recipes on offer, comprehensive search functions and great overviews, it’s not surprising why it’s such a great app. Users can even add their own recipes to the app!
Developers, Publications International, clearly didn’t want to stop there though with the latest version update 2.0 providing a huge wealth of new features.
Most importantly, iCookbook is now an universal app and can be used by iPhone users as well as iPad. It doesn’t stop there, though.
How-To videos are now included which show the proper techniques required to complete some of the more complex kitchen skills. Airplay support means that these videos as well as recipes can be put on the big screen via an Apple TV, making it simpler for the Apple fan who also loves to cook.
iOS5 based features continue with iCloud sync support which means that recipes and shopping lists can be shared between iOS devices. Perfect for those browsing for recipe ideas on their iPad who then want to access their shopping list with their iPhone. iPhone 4S users will appreciate the Siri support iCookbook now provides. When the app is in prepare mode, which makes the instructions big to read for counter side use, voice commands can be used to turn pages, check notes or start and stop timers. No need to worry about getting that shiny new iPhone 4S dirty mid way through cooking!
Rounding off the update is the ability to rate recipes out of 5 stars plus users can now add photos to their own recipes. Other subtle UI changes have been made to make the app even easier to use, too.
It’s a great implementation of all the best that iOS5 offers and is bound to make iCookbook even more useful than it was before.
The iCookbook update is available now for free for existing users. For everyone else, it’s available priced at $4.99.
