iOS: There are lots of apps to organise your recipe collection. RecipeTin is a new contender that lets you snap photos or import PDF-printed versions of recipes you find on the web.
The video above walks you through RecipeTin’s basic features — like most recipe organising apps, you can organise, sort, search and share your recipes with others. The app isn’t too unique on that front. Where it’s interesting though is how easy it is to get your recipes into RecipeTin.
You can snap a photo of an article or the recipe you want in the app, and while it won’t do perform OCR and scan the text, it will make it a little easier to add it to your recipe and fill out the rest yourself. Plus, if you find a recipe on a blog or personal site that you want to try, just print the article to PDF and import it to RecipeTin. You can also useiTunes document transfer or email. Either way, it will land in the app perfectly.
RecipeTin is available now for iOS devices. It’s $0.99, but it’s not a Universal App, so if you have an iPhone or iPod Touch, it will be a buck, and if you also have an iPad, it will be another buck. Hit the link below to read more.
