We all have different needs when it comes to recipes. Some of us are single (ah-hem) and some of us have big families to cook for every night. No matter where you fall on that spectrum, it’s always handy to have an Android recipe app nearby. A good recipe app can be the difference between a good meal and a great meal. Check out our top 3 Android recipe apps below.
Big Oven is one of the simpler Android recipe apps available on the Google Play store. And we here at AAW love simple. Big Oven’s logo is reminiscent of the classic and SIMPLE board game Othello. In actuality its the top of a stove within a dialog bubble. Does the name Big Oven sound a little intimidating, as perhaps an homage to the always scary “Big Tobacco”? It sure does. And we like it that way.
But enough about Big Oven’s name. Let’s get to the functionality of the app. When you first open Big Oven, you’ll have three options to begin with, “Get Ideas”, “My Kitchen” and “More”. The “Get Ideas” option will give you the massive collection of recipes and menus to search through. You can also select the “Use Up Leftovers” option that is very handy for mixing and matching on hand ingredients. The “My Kitchen” section will let you set up meal plans, make grocery lists, and view your favorited recipes and menus. There is plenty to explore when it comes to Big Oven. That’s why think it is one of the best Android recipe apps on the market. Download it for free today on the Google Play store.
All The Cooks Recipes
As much as we love the name of the Big Oven recipe app, we can’t help but feel All The Cooks Recipes is a little uninspiring. Regardless, this is still a fantastic Android recipe app that deserves the second spot on our list. When it comes to sheer volume of recipes, “Recipe Search” cannot be beat. It’s hard to compete with over 150,000 different recipe variations . With so many recipes, it can be a challenge to organize and present all of that data. Recipe search steps up to the challenge. With an endless array of pictures to scroll through, you’ll begin eating with your eyes before you chop your first head of bok choy.
Cheftap is a unique app that pulls recipes from all of your other favorite recipe websites. Like most recipe apps, ChefTap gives you recommendations to choose from before you have to type anything. For those of you who like a little more control, you can utilize the search tool and find something more specific to your tastes. What makes ChefTap unique however, is the focus on favoriting recipes. ChefTap lets you save your favorites, add your own recipes and even import from your browser’s bookmarks. It’s a unique take on the recipe app. One that we think works wonders for the budding chef.
