What's New in Version 1.1
Fixed a bug related to scrolling through recipes and info on iOS4
Added 4 new restaurants and recipes: Bar Tartine, North Pond, Double Crown, Tartine Bakery & Café
Fixed various small errors
This update is for iOS4 users only. Unfortunately the fix to scrolling affected the compatibility of the app on iOS3. Apologies if you are still running the old iPhone or iPod Touch without iOS4. If you would like the recipes and have bought the app, e-mail us and we will mail links to them on the web to you.
New lower price makes this app unbeatable
I'm trying to get over the fact that I paid $5.99 for this app about 2 weeks before they lowered the price. Now that they have, though, 42 Restaurants is one of the best recipe programs on iTunes. They also fixed the bugs that were plaguing the app. In my top 3 along with How to Cook Everything and Mario Cooks! This is a unique collection of high-end, gourmet recipes from some of the best chefs in the world along with some great information about their restaurants. Some of the recipes are rather exotic (my local Albertsons tends to not carry pheasant and pig trotters for instance,) and the preparations can be very complex--there are good reasons why these are some of the top chefs. Stylishly presented, easy to navigate and the recipes are well laid out, if difficult. A truly superb app.
I really like this app -- the recipes range from Iron Chef America level to at home great cook! Getting from the name and photo of the dish on a "diner-style spinner" (VERY COOL) to the ingredients and step-by-step directions is a bit wiggly giggly but having an actual recipe that a chef serves in his or her restaurant is great! Currently, there's a handful of restaurant recipes but it seems they'll be adding more in updates and that's a good thing!!
Interface needs work
In portrait mode you should be able to swipe to go to the next or previous restaurant. That would conform to the standard Apple interface interaction. If it wasn't for this I would've given this app a 5star rating
