Hi,

Does anyone know of a recipe organization (to put recipes in, not ones with recipes in it already) App that I can have on an AirMac, Ipad2. I also have an Iphone4.

Thanks,
Katie

I don't know what "AirMac" is (MacBook Air?), but I use and love Paprika on all my Apple devices (http://www.paprikaapp.com). I have a few quibbles (like not being able to put photos in the directions area or format text). But the developers are very responsive and helpful too.

The iOS and Mac versions sync wirelessly with no problems and the programs automatically "import" from many of my favorite recipe sites.

Yes MacBook Air:eek: I was working on a Migraine and the words were not flowing:D

In Paprika Can you put a picture at all and can you make your own categories?

And would you mind sharing some of your favorite recipe sites?

Thanks for the help and the replies from you both.

I was looking for an app to add recipes into, and came up with a simple solution...
i just create the recipe in a pages doc, with all the info i want and photos i want, and save it as a pdf file. I then import that into iTunes. When you open iBooks, you can create "collections" which is subcategories of books that you can organize your stuff into. I created one called Recipes. So basically instead of using a separate app, i just go to them in iBooks. It works well enough for me.

Yes, you can do both those things.

When you install Paprika it has a built in browser used to import recipes from cooking web sites. Look in that browser for a long list of predefined cooking web site bookmarks. All the popular ones are on that list.

Paprike works surprisingly well importing recipes from these web sites.
