It’s Coooommmmiiiing…..!

CATEGORIES: General News


You ask, we deliver.  Or at least we try to.  When it’s reasonable.

We’re thrilled to announce that an Our Best Bites Mobile App is in the works!  It’s actually rather close to being ready, but funny thing happened.  I was chatting with a friend the other day and when the subject of our app came up she immediately listed off a whole bunch of things it needed to do.  Things she loves about cooking apps and things she hates.  And then a couple days later she emailed me a bunch more.  The part that struck me?  They were fabulous ideas.  Simple ideas.  And I hadn’t thought of a single one of them.  So that made me think- duh!  Ask the people who are going to use the app what they want it to do!

So here’s your chance.  We’re looking for real, constructive, useful feedback.  We already know that everyone would like an app available on every platform 🙂

– If you’re someone who has wanted an OBB app, what are you hoping for?
– What would be your main purpose in using the app?
– Are there any special features that you would love?
-Any ideas to make it especially unique and fun?
– Is there anything you don’t like about other cooking apps?

If you’re reading this via email, please do us a favor and click here to come on over to our site today- and then speak up, folks!  We want to hear from you! Feel free to comment on anything you can think of.  This is your shot to help design it in the final stages!  We’re going to read every single comment and consider all of your feedback, after all- you’re the ones who have been asking for this and we pretty much live to make you happy.  Really, we do. Muah!

  1. 1. If you’re someone who has wanted an OBB app, what are you hoping for? Something I can use, on my phone, while at the grocery store. Something easy to use with multiple search options (ingredients, complimenting side dishes/desserts, time it takes to cook, etc.)

    2. What would be your main purpose in using the app? Meal planning and grocery shopping on the go.

    3. Are there any special features that you would love? Search options (as mentioned above)

    4. Any ideas to make it especially unique and fun? Being able to “like” it and have it post to my Facebook feed would be cool.

    5. Is there anything you don’t like about other cooking apps? not specifically. Really, generally, you get what you pay for.

    I echo the repeated comments about making the application available on multiple platforms. I have an android phone, but use a Nook and an iPad.

  2. I like weekly menu building apps – like, where I can select one recipe for the week, and the app suggests other meals for the week that use similar ingredients.

    I also second the idea of releasing for all of the platforms!!

    1. I would LOVE this feature. Kind of like your list in the back of the cookbook with recipes that use small amounts of different ingredients.

  3. I would love to use your cooking app! I am always looking up your website on my phone, which is a pain, but it works. I would love it if I could put in an ingredient or ingredients, and have it come up with a list of recipes. Also, as others have said, please make it for Android too. There is nothing more frustrating than finding out about a great app only to find out it is only for the iphone. Thanks so much for making an app!!

  4. We don’t have smartphones….we DO have a Kindle Fire….so an app that is available for more than smartphones would be DIVINE!

  5. Please release an app. for Android too. It is really frustrating when I want an app but it is only available for iPhone. I can’t tell you how excited I am to use it.

    1. This a thousand times over. It’s really frustrating when an app is only available for a single OS, instead of all platforms.

      1. Yes, Android! Please! And once you have it on Android, don’t forget to get it on the Amazon app store for Kindle Fire users. So much easier to see recipes in the kitchen on the Fire vs. phone!

    2. Another vote for Android as well.

      Tablet friendly would be awesome too. I can see myself using this more on my (Android) tablet.

  6. I would love a feature that would suggest a full menu based off choosing one recipe. For example, if I looked up “Asian BBQ Chicken”, then it would possibly suggest “Lime-Cilantro Rice with Pineapple” as a side dish, etc. Linking related recipes together would be awesome to help put together a full menu. One other idea – having a way to make menu suggestions for particular occasions such as a baby shower, kids party, holidays, etc. In any case, I can’t wait for this app to come out – I am such a big fan of Kate & Sara! Thank you!!

    1. I agree with #2, #3, and #4. I’m constantly looking for side dishes for my main dish. Also I would like the app. to link to ziplist. I love you guys so much. I’ve made so many of your recipes and have never been disappointed. I’m a professional chef and it is so much fun to impress the other “prof” chefs with an outstanding recipe from OBB! Keep up the great work!! I need OBB! Thanks for asking our opinions.

  7. The only cooking apps that I have found useful are ones that let you search by ingredient, and not just by name or course. The ability to build a menu or even a week of menus and then email yourself a shopping list is always a bonus too.

    Good luck app building 🙂

    1. I agree with Chipper! Good cooking apps allow shopping lists and building menus. Super helpful!!

      SO excited for the app!!

    1. what Maria explained I’m amazed that someone can get paid $6438 in one month on the computer. did you read this website >>> Click2go.notlong.comAT
