Yummly Whips Up A Delicious New App For iPads.
Yummly recently released a new kitchen tool that will definitely be useful for home cooking. Sometime on Thursday its iPad application made its debut on the iTunes store, allowing any burgeoning chefs to turn their Apple tablets into virtual recipe books, which can easily be prop up on their kitchen counters, ready to read and made.
The core features that can be found on its iPhone app counter part and semantic recipe search portal can be found on the iPad version as well. Yummly has tweaked the interface a bit to making it much more handier as a cooking tool, rather than just a simple recipe research tool. Additionally, the iPad app allows user to load up multiple recipes simultaneously and toggle between them with the touch screen, said Dave Feller CEO and co-founder of Yummly. These kind of feature can be very useful when cooking a multicourse meal, Feller added.
The Gathering of Recipes.
Yummly first began as a search engine that not only gathers recipe from hundreds of famous cooking sites, but also breaks those recipes down to their base component. By using that data it will be able to parse nutritional data and even flavor profiles of dishes they represent. As time has continued to pass, more and more features have been added such as the digital recipe box, and dish recommendation based on the user’s past history and personal tastes.
Feller has stated that the way customers have come to use Yummly has evolved. Instead of simply going to the site to search for specific recipes, a lot of their users, especially those of the younger generation, have been using the iPhone app as a food discovering tool. Yummly’s cooks have been using the application to generate idea for meals with no specific recipe in mind. Not only that, but another way its being used, is for simply that of entertainment by looking up the various exotic meals.
