    The go-to app for foodies foraging for new recipe ideas

    • Compile shoppping lists viewable offline
    • Bright and user-friendly
    • Lots of search customization and filtering: diet, ingredients, imperial or metric
    • Categorize recipes how you want them
    • Search function not perfect- some mistakes do creep in
    • Nutritional info not always 100% accurate

    "Find me something Yummly"

    Launched back in 2010, Yummly hails itself as the go-to app for foodies foraging for new recipe ideas. Once you start using it, you’ll see why this bright, user-friendly iOS app is already loved by droves of gourmet gurus.

    This super-sized food database connects you with thousands of recipes in a matter of seconds. It allows you to easily store and categorize your finds at the click of a ‘yum’. What’s more, you are able to compile shopping lists, which are viewable offline, from any of the dishes on offer.

    You can also customize this bad boy all for you. Switch between metric and imperial measurements, filter by taste preferences (no seafood thank you), enter dietary requirements (the more exotic of which I hadn’t even heard of) and search for recipes based on the ingredients you already have in your pantry.

    Plus, depending on the time of day, weather, season, location and other factors, you’ll see different recommendations. For example, if you open the app at 6pm on a winter Saturday, you may see recipes for a warm and satisfying apple pie. Amazing.

    There are some minor flaws. The filters aren’t defect-free, so when searching for gluten-free pizza recipes, you’ll still come across a wheat-heavy recipes. Also, the handy nutritional information isn’t always correct (it would be a result, but I doubt a lasagne can actually only be 30 calories). But this bright, user friendly app would definitely be an asset to any chef's pantry.
