Old Competition Post

A couple of weeks ago I reviewed Basil, a fresh take on recipe apps for the iPad. A fortnight later, I’m still no less enamoured with it!

Basil is a superb recipe app that’s designed with you in mind. The inclusion of smart timers and easy addition of recipes from the web make this a true contender.

If you’re a food lover who likes to try new things, Basil could be the perfect companion!


Occasionally an app comes along that reminds me why computers are great. Why we (humankind) were so fervent about developing them and putting them to work in every possible situation. It isn’t normally something complex or visually impressive that ushers forth this feeling, but more often a simple example of an app making life easier.

To take a random example, a recipe app that allows you to collate and organise your recipes, that’s wrapped in a beautiful interface, but that requires you to tediously input great swathes of information yourself, is barely scratching the surface of what the iPad can achieve.

This brings us neatly to Basil, a refreshing take on recipe apps that aims to make your life easier!
