iPad apps: Food & Wine magazine
- We’ll start out with the environmental aspect. Magazines are great, but they almost always end up in the recycle bin. No paper waste with an app.
- Like a recipe that you see? There is no print function, but you can e-mail the recipe to yourself and print it or put in your own electronic recipe database from there. You can also share the recipes through Facebook or Twitter.
- There are videos embedded in the pages. You can be reading an article, then play a related video, then go right back to the article, all in one place.
- At the bottom of some pages, there are scrolling galleries — kind of like slide shows. They’re used to display several photos with captions, all on one page.
- Every recipe has its own page with a large photo. The recipes really stand out in the app.
- Every bottle of wine reviewed has its own picture. If you take your iPad with you to the wine store, the pictures can help you find a bottle of wine quickly.
- Once an issue is downloaded, it’s there. You can read all issues you have on your iPad anytime, anywhere, even if you’re not connected to the Internet.
- It’s free.
I’m hooked on this app, and I’m looking forward to finding more helpful and entertaining apps to feed my reading and learning about food. As I find them, I’ll tell you what I think.
