"Tea, shisha's smoke and relax"

Hookah Mixes features hundreds of shisha mixes recipes

For chilling out there's nothing better than a hot tea, a comfy couch and a Hookah with friends around. But if you want to make that moment perfect, Hookah Mixes can help you with over 1400 recipes of shisha mixes.

Hookah Mixes' database of recipes is huge and divided in three major recipe books: Nahla mixes, Al Fakher mixes and Tangier mixes. You can navigate through the scrollable list of recipes, see its ingredients and the amount of each. In addition, you can apply flavors filters which is perfect if feel like smoking only some flavors.

Hookah Mixes includes an excellent feature: you can add the tobacco you currently own and it will automatically find possible mixes. Times of smoking always the same recipe are over thanks to Hookah Mixes.

The app is neat, polished and intuitive. I'm missing some social features like users' rating for each recipe (global average rating) and other sharing options.

I first tried smoking hookah (not electronic) 4 years ago with friends. It was not very tasty, the smoke was harsh, but my friends did not know how to make it better. Then I found an internet forum about hookahs and began to study the experience of other people. After month of reading forum, I already had an idea of what the heat resistance of tobacco is, what is the difference between phunnel and vortex bowl and why quick lighting coals is not the best choice. Taste of my hookahs became stably good. Then, when various tobaccos have been tried, it was interesting to do mixes, combine different flavors. On forums and social networks there were many mixes, but searching for them before every hookah session was exhausting. So I made the first version of the app with a large mixes database and ability to search through them and rate.
In the current version of HookahGusto were added new mixes from professional hookahmans and hookah companies, as well as instructions for beginners, explaining the basic principles and the subtleties necessary to prepare tasty hookahs. Homemade hookahs are as good as ones in lounge or cafe and cheap.
I really hope that this knowledge, being collected in one convenient app, will be useful for both beginner and professional hookah fans!
Have a thick smoke and "Pass the hookah" like Tyga sings :)

    this would be excellent if there were more options for brands. I'm sure this has more to do with it licensing more than anything else. but with more brands I would definitely pay a couple of dollars for this app. I really think your onto someting. Also It would be really good if we could somehow map local stores and lounges in our area. could also have a sponsor section with online hookah retailer

    Overall the app has a very nice flow to it. Gives information one might want without giving unnecessary or bias point of view. I'm sure in time there will be more brands added both new, old, modern and traditional. Very solid app for current times, as I said before, once modern tobacco brands such as Haze and Starbuzz are added this app will be more widely used and appeal more to the new age smoke

    Not bad but I think it's stupid we have to share the app to unlock everything can't you just make it pay ? I'd gladly pay a dollar or two for full access. Or at least ad a English facebook share feature and the ability for people to add there own mixes they come up with

    Way better than before. A lot more mixes. Their were a lot of grammatical errors but since I am an avid hookah smoker, I understood what he meant. More hookah examples would be nice and glass hookahs as well. Also with heat management and Fumari, you need to squeeze out some the juice. Great app, keep updating with flavors, Starbuzz always has new ones. Also a section with accessories would be nic
