This bestselling, first-of-its-kind app of New York Times columnist Mark Bittman’s bestselling cookbook includes 2,000 recipes and 400 how-to illustrations — plus specially designed features for the mobile user.
A newly added feature converts temperatures and quantities to metric for those who prefer metric measurements.
Here’s some of what’s on tap:
• From this award-winning book: Mark Bittman’s 2,000 recipes and recipe variations— as well as his no-nonsense cooking guidance, including hundreds of how-to illustrations; equipment, technique, and ingredient information; and meal-planning ideas
• Easy-to-use and flexible search capabilities, as well as the ability to browse recipes and reference information
• Handy built-in timers, placed throughout the recipe steps
• Well-organized shopping lists that make it easy to buy ingredients — and whatever other groceries you need at home
• Convenient printing of recipes and shopping lists from devices running iOS 4.2
• Cooking inspiration: Bittman’s Picks, Featured Recipe, Quick Dinners, and Favorites, which provide quick access to selected recipes
• All recipe and reference content is embedded in the app, which means that you can use the app even if you don’t have a network connection
• Full support for iOS 4 multitasking. iOS 4 users also gain the ability to swipe between recipe steps with a flick across the screen, the ability to add recipes to the calendar app, and step timers that run even when the app is not running.
• Stunning high resolution graphics optimized for the Retina display.
• Feed your friends: Integration with Facebook and Twitter allows you to share what you’re cooking with your social network!
• Email up to 10 recipes a month to yourself or to friends.
• Be global: Automatically convert temperatures and quantities to metric if that’s yor preference.
• This app is the perfect complement to the book and an invaluable reference.
