AppDictions App Review
Each day, millions of Americans convince ourselves that we are too busy to cook and opt to buy take out food that is poor in both quality and nutrition. NoTakeOut aims to provide you with the information, skills, and most importantly, recipes, that will have you saying “goodbye” to your local take out restaurant! Right as you open the app, NoTakeOut offers a great dinner suggestion for the day. If that recipe doesn’t strike your fancy, simply browse through dozens of menus created each month! Recipes display an appetizing picture, serving size, prep time, and total time, as well as wine and dessert suggestions to eliminate guesswork! Each recipe provides full and accurate shopping and pantry lists so you know exactly what you’ll need.
There are also many great other features that makes NoTakeOut stand out from other recipe apps. First, when your device is in landscape mode, NoTakeOut will enlarge the prep and cooking instructions and enables you to advance through each step through voice commands like “Step Right” or “Step Left”. Another great feature is in-app timers that are pre-set for the length of time in each step. NoTakeOut also provides lists of in-season produce so you can take advantage of the freshest ingredients in your recipes. Save your favorite recipes or share them with friends through email. Although most of the recipes are quite “fancy” and may not appeal to every palette, NoTakeOut gives you everything you need to end your dependence on take out food!
