Android App Video Review: Allrecipes.com Dinner Spinner

by Erik Fikkert

Allrecipes.com is a wonderful resource for anyone looking for great recipe ideas or just general cooking advice. They've released an Android app as well that gives users the ability to search through their massive online collection of recipes, upload and store their own, and create shopping lists for ingredients.

When the app initially opens, you are presented with a spinner very similar to the one found in the Urbanspoon app. This spinner will help you decide a meal randomly if you're not sure exactly what you are looking for. Once a recipe is found, tapping on it will bring up the ingredients and instructions, as well as any reviews or comments made by other users.

The app had a great list of recipes to choose from and it was exciting to see the variety of different meals I could pick from. Users can also add a recipe to the favorites section along with their own recipes via the online website so they will always have them on hand. The app's overall design is extremely clean and simple, perfect for finding what you want. If you find a recipe that you absolutely enjoyed, it can also be shared via email or on social networks like Facebook and Twitter.

Overall, the app was perfect for the kitchen and totally worth the money for the full version. Check it out.
