Oh, there’s also a great little widget that provides the recipe of the day! 

Features found in Epicurious’ Recipes & Shopping List: On the Go and In the Kitchen:

Find inspiration browsing by type of dish, main ingredient, cuisine, dietary consideration, dish type, and season or occasion. Or, search recipes by keyword.
  • Saving and sending functionality: Save recipes to your Favorites by tapping the plus sign on any recipe image. E-mail any recipe to yourself or to a friend.

      Those screens came from our downloaded copy. We found it on Cliq XT (1.5) and 2.1 (EVO 4G).

    It's a huge file. And I found the action (flipping from dish to dish) a little jerky and glitchy. It also really seemed to bog down my phone badly (file size?). It was taking forever just for my home screen to restore (and I'm running the stock home screens, except for a .jpg background). Running a Tmo MyTouch 1.0 with stock Android 1.6 Maybe it would run better on a phone with a beefier processor and higher version of Android.

    Totally misleading app. It says for $1.99, it will sync your recipe box. In the small print which no one reads, it states it only syncs Epicurious recipes. Who wants to pay for that? I can get that for free along with my personal recipes by going onto the browser and pulling up the website. I want my personal recipes on my iPad and the description implies that is what you get with the sync feature, but it’s not true. Don’t waste your money.

    I’m on Android and prefer “My Recipes” which allows me to store my own recipes. It allows me to share my recipes over the web too. It has a free and paid for version.

    The android app doesn’t seem to be optimized for the tablet. The iPad version looks and works so much better. I hope their working on improving the android version!
