Like meat? Then you’ll love this app (and it’s a must-have for holiday cooking).

Big App for Meat covers every cut of meat, with over 200 different cuts of beef, lamb, pork, veal and poultry, complemented by hi-res photography and detailed descriptions. There’s over 50 minutes of premium video, where master butcher Pat LaFrieda demonstrates techniques you can use at home, and shares his four generations of butchering secrets. From sharpening your knife to what to look for in a dry-aged steak—Pat shows you how it’s done.
You can test your meat knowledge with the Great Meat 101 Quiz. And for first time ever, LaFrieda Meats will be selling directly to consumers nationwide, via a one-click access to the online store where users can purchase the best steaks, chops and burgers.

What's New in Version 1.1.1
Video player fixes.
Interesting, but slightly flawed
The biggest problem I see is that, for some reason, the app only works in one portrait mode, the one that is upside down relative to the normal positioning of the iPad. For example, my Logitech keyboard (hardly an exotic item) mates to the magnetic edge of the iPad. But when the iPad is in the keyboard that way, this app is upside down. Really? Every other app has the ability to recognize which way is up and rotate accordingly. How something so simple went overlooked is hard to fathom.
Now, for the good news. The information presented is brilliant, both in level of detail and in the means by which they present it. If you're a die-hard meat foodie, you will appreciate the detail with which they describe which part of each cut is best, and what to look for. If you don't have anything to learn from this app, you must be a butcher, and an uncommonly excellent one at that.
Beef / Chicken / Lamb / Pork
This app. would have scored a definite 5 out of five if it were not for the upside down screen presentation. The presentation of the different meats really helps with cuts and why one is better than another for a particular application. Have you ever felt like it was your first rodeo at the meat counter ?? This app. will help dispel meat buying fears you might have. Take a lot of the fear out of going to the butcher and make informed decisions based on your own new found knowledge. The recipes are delicious and well thought out ! You won't be disappointed in this app. REALLY !!
First, the app is awesome in quality, information and production but I too have an external keyboard connected to my ipad4. I own the ZAGG PROfolio and the landscape position that the case requires the ipad to sit in causes the app to have to be viewed upside down. Again this is a great app and this becomes an inconvenient hassle when im trying to read and view the videos. If this one little feature could be rectified then you definitely have a 5 star app.
