Cooking is fun and, for the most part, fairly easy if you have the right teacher. Taking a written recipe for anything even a little bit complicated can lead to some incorrect interpretations and a failed culinary endeavor.
Not long ago I did a roundup of cooking apps here and included Appetites as part of the group. I spent more time with Appetites and really learned some serious things from the step by step video delivery method of cooking a recipe. I can say it changed the way I cook. When I came upon the same developer’s Easy As Pie I knew I had to try it out. Off into the world of pie making.
So, if you read last week’s instalment, you know how to get started with the iPad as a living room machine. Moving through the house our next stop is the kitchen, and how we might use Apple’s iconic tablet to help with cooking, planning, and other kitchenly activities.
The iPad is a wonderful machine, but do you ever find yourself stuck when someone asks you to show them what it can do? You end up showing them Reeder and Mail, apps you use everyday that, while great, don’t truly show off the potential of the iPad!
This is a roundup of apps that are guaranteed to make your friends’ mouths hang open in awe, designed to take full advantage of the amazing things the iPad is capable off. Get ready…
Today’s interview is with Nick Alt, the creator of Appetites for the iPad. We’ll learn a little about the Appetites team and what motivates them, as well as diving into a discussion about the difficulties of creating an app – from developing features to naming an app!
Even better, find out what advice he would give himself, in retrospect, about the development process, and what apps he couldn’t live without! We love the developers that produce the amazing software we review, and hopefully this will be a great way for you to meet the names and faces behind the apps that you use every day!
I hope you enjoy it!
