Gourmet (for iOS)
By Mariner Software
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Completely overhauled, Gourmet for iOS is now a UNIVERSAL app, optimized for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad devices. You can add, edit, scale and import recipes...even when you’re away from your Mac.
But, will it sync?
Absolutely! Use your FREE Mariner Cloud cloud to sync from MacGourmet Deluxe 4. Sync Recipes, Shopping Lists, Wine Notes, Cooking Notes and My Lists. The best part is that syncing is now two-way and incremental. Add a recipe or make a simple edit on your Mac and sync just those additions or changes to your iOS device. Make a change, scale a recipe, or import a new recipe to your iOS device and sync it to your Mac. Simply put - it works both ways. We know how cooks love to share. With the cloud syncing of Gourmet for iOS, you can sync with other Macs and iOS devices.
No Mac app? No problem
You don’t need to have MacGourmet or MacGourmet Deluxe to use all the features of Gourmet for iOS. Find a recipe on the web and easily import it. When you’re shopping and you find that two more are joining you for dinner - don’t worry! You can scale a recipe for the number you need and then go back to the original setting. You can create shopping lists and make and edit notes. In short, you can carry your digital recipe box around with you wherever you go.
Whether you are a foodie or a professional chef, Gourmet for iOS is the perfect app to help you manage and share your recipes!
Other features of Gourmet for iOS include:
• New UI look including themes and colors
• Change font size
• Adding steps to a recipe is optional
• UPC scanner support
• Social media sharing (pending) through Facebook and Twitter
• Edit an Item, Amount, Units, and Aisles of a Shopping List
• Use the Chef’s View for undistracted cooking
• Email or Chat a recipe to a friend
• Search the web for a new recipe and import it to add to your collection
**Note: Your initial sync will sync ALL the recipes in your database to or from your device. This can be a lot of data, especially if your recipes and notes have photos. Subsequent syncs will go much faster, as they sync only the items that have changed. For your initial sync, we recommend disabling the auto lock on your device temporarily, and letting the sync complete overnight, or at another time when you are not using your device.
***Gourmet for iOS is only compatible with MacGourmet Deluxe 4.

So good it makes me want to cook more often!
My Mac, my iPad, and my iPhone all can synchronize their recipes. Got married, and my wife bought the app and got all my recipes in one shot! As her daughter said, everything that is mine is now hers! :-)
Not long ago, my recipe collection was a ratty pile of printed web pages, handwritten notes, printed emails, and iPhone screen shots. Stuffing them all in a binder was an improvement, but now that they're in Gourmet and Mac Gourmet, I can scale them, print them, see them from across the kitchen on my iPad, and, of course, share them.
Last night, my wife of three weeks wanted to make the roasted rosemary garlic red potatoes that go so well with the meatloaf she fished out of the freezer. For a pittance, she bought this wonderful app and had the recipe, scaled to fit how many potatoes she found, ready to go. Life is better with this app in it.
I had to reset the cloud server sync information, due to a partial synchronization due to an internet connection interruption, and, oddly, the cloud server itself was not letting me log in for a short while, but now the sync works so well, it is almost creepy. I added a note to a recipe on my iPhone, and it popped up in the recipe, open on my Mac, as I watched. When it works, it works beautifully.
Tech support has always been awesome. I feel like I have friends who work there. I guess I do!
My Five Star Assistant
I migrated to the Mac app, MacGourmet Deluxe, after using A Cooks Book for ten years. One of the strong point in favor of the migration was the iPhone and iPad app, Gourmet.
Not only does it work seamlessly, I use my iPad as as a recipe book whilst I am cooking and am able to see all the ingredients necessary for any recipe in my collection while I am out shopping and happen upon an item on sale, or something that looks especially tasty.
I plan my menus, shopping and even pricing in the app along with pictures and notes, etc.
The developer is very responsive and engaged with users which is a bonus as every app user knows!
I give both the mobile and desktop versions five stars.
Problems with shopping list
I really like MacGourmet Deluxe so was delighted to find the iOS app. I'm happy with the way it handles recipes, but the shopping list handling in Gourmet does not work well. Shopping lists sync okay, except that multiple lists seem to come over if you combine recipes into one shopping list--the combined list and one list for each of the recipes. And there seems to be no way to remove a shopping list from Gourmet. Even if you remove the list in MacGourmet, then sync, every list that ever existed in Gourmet seems to remain. It becomes unusable. I have a few tickets related to this open on the Mariner site. Since shopping list functionality is a main reason to have this on my phone, not having that really hurts the usefulness of the app.
