Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Please note: Recipe Tool requires an Internet connection to function. Recipe tool is an app for creating and modifying recipes. Type in the recipe you want to make and recipe tool will aggregate relevant recipes across the web and give you the essential ingredients in that recipe. If you want to add an ingredient to the recipe, recipe tool will tell you how much to add. All of your recipes will be saved in the "My Recipes" section. It automatically calculates the nutritional information for you, and you can even import cooking instructions from another recipe. Recipe tool does not work very well for recipes with two or more components like chocolate cake with vanilla frosting.
I downloaded this app because it said I could enter a recipe and get the nutritional information. I did enter a recipe but when it did not include ALL the ingredients when it gave nutrition. I work with almond flour a lot and need to include that nutrition detail. Is there a way I can put in the information from my almond flour package and get it included in the recipes?
On a bright note, it seems pretty easy to enter data.
However, I also cannot figure out how to navigate in the app AT ALL. I looked something up and it took me to a web page within the app and there is no way to get out! Now my app is stuck there and I have no way of playing with it any further
It seems there's still some work to do here!!
Don't waste your money!
This app doesn't work as advertised. It doesn't include all ingredients when calculating the nutrition info. It doesn't save recipes or, if it does, there is no way to retrieve them. Great idea. Poor execution.
This app was just what I wanted, except that it crashes and loses my recipes. What a waste of time and .99.
