Offering a veritable feast of delicious looking Tapas recipes, The Photo Cookbook – Tapas is a delightful continuation of an already popular series of apps.
The Photo Cookbook – Tapas keeps its interface very simple. There's no superfluous inclusion of a Shopping List feature, or anything needless like that. While users can favorite recipes, add notes and email them to others, that's about as complex as the features get. The focus is very much on the recipes and photos of the meals. I say meals, Tapas is all about creating numerous smaller dishes to work together with one another. There's certainly enough here to tantalize the tastebuds.
Divided into relevant sections of small plates, vegetarian, fish & seafood and meat, users can skim through the various ideas by sliding through the photos. Think of it as a casino fruit machine of delicious treats. Tap on a photo that looks appealing and the app opens up to some clear and concise instructions. Quantities are clearly described (although restricted to grams and pounds, not cups) with users simply scrolling down to learn more. Each step of the way, photos are offered showing how something should look at that stage, with a final photo demonstrating the final results. It's an immensely attractive way of doing it. Tap the favorite button and the recipe is always easily checked up on via the Search button, with the layout remaining the same so users can remember at a glance, what kind of food the recipe relates to.
With 60 recipes in all, The Photo Cookbook – Tapas has plenty to keep aspiring chefs happy. It's simply done but by doing so, everything looks achievable. A simple search function is all that's needed to round off the package, ensuring the focus is forever on the quality of the food. Foodies will enjoy this.
