AppDictions App Review
Truthfully, we'll never be a Julia Child or a Betty Crocker, but there's nothing wrong with feeling like them every once in a while. Over the years, cooking has grown increasingly more specialized, exciting and competitive. Nowadays, there are endless possibilities in the kitchen, and the stunning array of different cuisines out there in the world has made it daunting for rookies to venture into the world of chefs.
Fortunately, technology makes all things possible. This new application for the iPhone is designed to put the regular household cook (or the occasional one) back in the constantly evolving fray.
Developers Peace Point Entertainment Group has now come out with Olson Recipe Maker. This new interactive application does not give you recipes, but it provides a wonderful platform where a cooking enthusiast may experiment and invent his own recipes – without fear of burning down the house.
Navigation throughout the app is very straight-forward. The interface is easy to understand, and the concept is quite simple. There are no flashy animations or busy graphics. This is a helpful tool, and while it is interesting and fun in its own way, it does not bother with the glitz of games.
You won't have a hard time as you use Olson Recipe Maker. Just put in the ingredients you currently have, and then the app will generate a variety of combinations that might just be the next family favorite. You can personalize the recipe/ template and then save it to try it for real in the future.
And to help you get started in the kitchen, as well as to inspire you in the creative process of the art of cooking, there are over 40 video tutorials of Michael and Anna Olson teaching you of the ways of the cook. If you're eager to start experimenting, this fun new app is a good place to start.
