Weekend cooking: iPhone edition

OK, until very recently I have been anti-Apple. I admit it. Then my Android phone turned out to be total crap and useless. So I needed a new phone and had a choice between some Symbiant thing and an iPhone (Android being out of the question for good).

I grudgingly ordered an iPhone and have become an Apple convert since. Enough said!

This is my weekend cooking iPhone edition with fun and/or useful foodie apps.

  • Coffee counter app for iPhone. Totally cute and useful for the coffee addict.
  • Evernote food app to keep track of what you eat, where and everything else you might ever want to remember about any given meal. If you are an Evernote user and a food lover this is great for you.
  • Sense Cooking, a cooking simulation game where you have to cut ingredients into halves, spread oil in a pan evenly, guess amounts of water etc. It is supposed to train your sensory motoric skills and sounds like fun.
  • Foodmeter tells you how healthy a certain type of food is, complete with nutritional facts.
  • Easy temperature converter for your recipes with foreign temperatures
  • Learn how to make Sushi with the Sushi Cook

Have you got or do you know of any cute, neat, practical iPhone apps that are food related? Link us up, please!

    • How fun! I decided against getting the Evernote app as I already use the regular Evernote. I don’t see much difference as I could easily create a food notebook and store all the food info in there. Or is there something more in the food app that I don’t get?


  1. Ok – I’m downloading Evernote right now. I eat so well in warm weather but when it gets cold it’s like I am part bear or something and I just try to put on 100 lbs and sleep for three months.


  2. Great post! Have to try these apps. I love the iphone and I use my iPad in the kitchen for recipes all the time..
    I use Turboscan for the iPhone, I use it to scan recipes. You know when you are reading a magazine at the doctor’s waiting room and find that perfect recipe? Now I can scan it with my phone and send it to my email as a PDF so it’s full size. I love it. Not free though, I think it’s $1.99 US but there is another called DocScan.

    • Carol, thanks. That sounds like a useful app. I often see great recipes in magazines when I am out and usually take a picture but of course it is not easy to use afterwards. A pdf scan could be sent right to Evernote and stored there. Sounds like a great idea! 1.99 is not too much.


  3. I have had a Mac computer forever. That’s all that ever came into our home, but I don’t have an iPod, iPad, or iPhone. Can’t imagine I ever will either. I guess I am one of the very, very few who use my phone to call and text and my computer, which sits on my desk, for computer-y stuff.

  4. I have an android phone, and haven’t explored the apps too much, but I have downloaded an perfect egg timer. I haven’t actually cooked with it yet, but it is fun to play with! I am going to go and see what I can find.

  5. ANTI-Apple? Wow. 😉 I’ve got plenty of Mac stuff (it’s just plain gorgeous 😉 but I’m not an adept or anything — I’ve got some criticism as well! 😉

    Anyway.. YES! Luuuuurv the Evernote Food App! And I’m definitely going to check out that Easy temperature converter.

    Have you looked at the Foodspotting app yet?

    • I have to admit that my iPhone is the cell phone that I have had least problems with so far (i.e. none).
      Will check out the app you mentioned and add it to the post above.
