***NOTE***My Comments weren't working correctly over the weekend so I'm extending this contest thru TUESDAY NIGHT! Please re-enter in comments! Thanks! Sorry for the inconvience!***
I've had my eye on this iPhone/iPad App for quite some time! When Carrie from CarrieOnVegan.com and VeganDelish asked me if I wanted to giveaway a few of the apps on my blog - I JUMPED at the opportunity!
Most Vegetarian and Vegan Apps I have tried I end up deleting because they only offer 'so much' and become 'stale' after a while. LOTS of the veg apps seem to be outdated and never updated! NOT THIS APP! This is AMAZING! Seriously...check this out!
Here you will see a screenshot of the iPhone App which is what I have been using but because I have both an iPhone as well as an iPad and I also have the CLOUD for my devices I will probably end up installing and using them on both devices!
Carrie suggests a great starting point with her easy to read and understand "How To Use This App" section. I thumbed thru it but I am the adventurous type so I got right to it!
Kicking things off at the Recipe Tab - it gives you a Laundry List of recipes with AWESOME Photos of each recipe and a short title. You can easily scroll/thumb thru them and with one easy "tap" on one of your choice you are already experiencing something wonderful!
I chose the "Herbed Hemp Dressing". When you tap on your recipe of choice you will see - such as in this screen shot - it includes a quality photo, description, you are able to add to your faves, rate it, and add ingredients to your shopping list with ease.
I added this one to my favorites! I noticed the recipe calls for Coconut Vinegar and I recently got some and was looking for the perfect test recipes - this sounds like a "goodie".
A few quick side notes...the BACK BUTTON is easy to find and really handy! You can SEARCH by keyword - you can also SHARE on Twitter, Facebook, Print, and Email. This app has a lovely Kitchen Timer INCLUDED, too!
The SHOPPING LIST feature is excellent, too! Not only can you add right in the shopping list tab - you can also add specific ingredients while looking thru recipes! I added Cacao, Avocados, Silken Tofu - while looking at a recipe - and then went to the shopping list and it was all there and ready to go! it even categorized it for me! It put the Cacao Powder in Grocery, Avocado in Produce, and Silken Tofu in Refrigerated. You can also print or email it!
When you tap on Categories - it breaks down the recipes in: Breakfast, Desserts, Gluten-Free, High Speed Blender, Juices, Kid-Friendly, Low-Sodium, Main Dishes, New Recipes, No Sugar Added, Oil-Free, Party Foods, Pressure Cooker, Quick & Easy, Raw Food, Salads and Dressings, Sauces, Sides, Slow Cooker, Smoothies, Soups & Stews! WOW! I couldn't ask for anything more!
Of course the FAVORITES Section is AWESOME! You can keep those faves handy without having to scroll thru everything. Don't get me wrong I LOVE the endless possibilities in this app and the enormous recipe collection AND selection!
Speaking of endless possibilities - that's what I LOVE MOST about this app! It's the LARGEST - most active, continuously updated Vegan App I have ever seen and I just LOVE it and will treasure it forever!
