The Drop Recipes app is a beautiful, interactive recipe book that works on its own or with appliances around the kitchen. Make use of the app's smart features to ensure perfect results every time you cook. When the app is paired with Drop Scale or connected ovens from Bosch or GE Appliances, it can do amazing work, like resizing recipes by ingredient or preheating your oven with the touch of a button.
WIRED Magazine recently called Drop “a pretty amazing thing.” Drop has also been praised in Gigaom, TechCrunch, MacWorld, Vanity Fair, Wall Street Journal, The Guardian, Gizmodo, and dozens other major publications.
Once you follow a Drop recipe, there's no going back. Each makes use of clever features such as ingredient substitution, recipe resizing by portion, and helpful timers — not to mention lots of photo and video tips.
Browse hundreds of top quality, tried and tested recipes from our own test kitchen and from fantastic recipe partners such as Good Housekeeping and Food52. With Drop, you can search for recipes by meal type, occasion, diet, experience level, and prep time. Recipe ratings and reviews by other users will help you decide what to make.
Launch right into a recipe to create on the fly, or use the prep section to get everything peeled, chopped, and measured before you start. You decide how much the recipe will yield: the app can halve, double, or quarter a recipe for you, and with the Drop scale, it can even resize by ingredient weight. Missing an ingredient entirely? Drop will suggest smart alternatives and adjust the recipe accordingly.
Drop recipes are designed to create an easy, step-by-step visual experience that eliminates the hassle of wading through paragraphs of text in search of an oven temperature. The responsive Drop format gives you all the information you need to make something beautiful, including in-app timers that sound off before anything gets burned or ruined, and photo and video tips to keep you on track.
Drop makes it easy to share recipes and food photos online. Pin your favorite Drop recipes to Pinterest or share them with your friends on Facebook and Twitter. Or post a photo of your own masterpiece straight from the app to Instagram and let the likes roll in. Don't forget to share the secrets to your success with the Drop community by leaving a recipe review!
This release gets Drop Recipes working properly on iOS 12 devices. We fixed a few minor bugs, and implemented general compatibility improvements.
Ratings and Reviews
Significant VoiceOver bug not speaking measurements in real time
Overall, the app is pretty accessible and well designed. The simple scale layout is nice and clean and for one slight bug, very accessible with VoiceOver. However, this one little bug makes using the app and thus the scale a difficult thing to do for blind iPhone users.
When on the field where the measurement would appear as you poured or wait or something, VoiceOver would announce it in real time, however, with the most recent updates, this is no longer the case. Now, you have to flick away and then back to the field with the measurement to have a voice over read it to you. This makes operating the app on the phone and handling whatever food or liquid you’re trying to weigh quite difficult and awkward. I wrote tech-support about this, but alas, haven’t heard anything back or an egg knowledge meant of this issue. If this one simple bug were fixed, I’d be more than happy to give it a five star rating.
Like tinder for cooking
I love this app so much. It makes choosing a recipe hard (they all look so good, I'm drooling just thinking about it) but once you're able to choose it's so easy to make anything, they walk you through step by step and even the timer are built in. I've really enjoyed using this app to broaden my cooking!! I don't have any of the appliances.. yet, but I hope to add the drop scale to my kitchen collection soon!
I just want to weigh things.
We bought the Drop scale for bread making, where weight of ingredients can be crucial. We thought phone/tablet integration would be a nice feature since our old digital scale readout went wonky.
BUT THIS APP IS BLOATED AND IRRELEVANT.
We don't need your recipes (far better recipe apps exist). We don't want to create an account just to measure out ingredients. We just want to use the expensive Drop scale that we purchased!!! Please bring back a scale-only app so we can do that. Or publish an API so someone else can do it.
