The most full-featured meal planning app that I've seen
on November 26, 2012
Having used the free version of Allrecipes, I knew it was one of the best recipe apps, so when the pro (paid) version went on sale as a Cyber Monday deal, I bought it. I've used enough recipe apps to know that Allrecipes is one of the most comprehensive full-featured recipe apps in the Android world. The recipe spinner is a nice feature, especially with its ability to add filters for vegan, low sodium, low carbohydrates, etc. Recipes that you like can be added to a recipe box for quick recall later. Unlike some recipe books and apps, the basic nutritional information is given (serving size, calories, fat, carbs, etc.), which is essential information for many people. To take full advantage of the app, you'll have to create an account with Allrecipes. Once you've done that, you can create shopping lists, email recipes, adjust the size of the recipes, and other things that are useful.
This is probably the most full-featured recipe app that I've seen. It's simple enough to use, but there is online help available if needed. It does require that the user be online when looking for recipes, but I don't see that as a significant downside.
Note: I ran the app on my Kindle Fire HD (7"), where I had no problems.
