Gourmet (for iOS)
By Mariner Software
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
***We are aware of the iPad display issue in version 1.1 and are working on a fix for the next update. Sorry for the inconvenience.***
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.
What's New in Version 1.1
Updated web importers
Unfortunate timing for a broken update
I have to feel bad for a developer who releases an update that breaks their cooking app the day before Thanksgiving. I also have to feel bad for the users who couldn't view their recipes normally.
Since they released a new iOS app and dropped support for the previous app both the iOS and Mac versions have worked well for me. I've had no problems with syncing or anything else until this update. I'm one who can't view my recipes in the left pane of my iPad. I just get a message that no recipe is selected. Restarting my device had no affect. It is still possible to see the recipes via Chef's view.
Overall I've been happy with MacGourmet. I am sure they will get the problem fixed. Hopefully without releasing a completely new app and requiring existing users to pay again. ;)
To the person who says the recipes don't display: try rebooting your device . Mine works fine. Also check if you are using recent IOS. app still needs some bugs corrected, support for sub lists, ability to print recipes , etc. but imports from web and sync now appear to work well .
A little broken since upgrade
After performing the last upgrade, the app on my iPad pro now opens like it is an iPhone app. It only utilizes 1/4 of the screen. It was working as expected before the upgrade. Something has been broken. Sad, because I use this app every day.
