Handy: Touch Free Recipe Player
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
"If you’ve ever tried to follow a recipe online while cooking simultaneously, you’ll know it can be a messy business. Handy by Unilever is a new web app that aims to change all that though, by letting you control recipe videos on YouTube without even having to touch your laptop”- Wired Magazine, 6th December 2013
Handy is an app that lets you control any YouTube recipe on your device with a wave of a hand. Using gesture control technology, you can play, pause and rewind your favourite YouTube recipe videos without getting your device all messy.
It couldn't be more simple. Search for a video, or copy and paste a YouTube link. Allow your app to use your camera then wave right to play, wave left to pause, and left again to rewind the video. In the top left hand corner of your screen you will see your webcam’s view, and a bar running along the top will show you how the webcam is responding to your gestures.
The Handy app also comes with a cookbook feature. Simply create an account to be able to store your favourite videos for future use.
"Baking in a cookbook function is a brilliant turn as well, since it turns Handy into users' de facto archive for cooking videos” - Contagious I/O, 7th January, 2014
