Recipes Manager for the Nokia N900
Leaving aside for a while the comparison between the Nokia N900 and the Apple iPhone, we would check out an interesting and quiet particular application for the Nokia N900. Pyrecipe is the name of it and you can guess which is his particularity.
This application is a recipes manager, you can write your recipes adding convenient information such as preparation time, cooking time, quantity of servings, besides the essential ones like the instructions and the ingredients. Also you can add some notes and an picture! But having your recipes only on your phone maybe it´s not a good idea, don’t worry because you are also able to export/import the recipes to and from many formats. As a manager, you can search in your recipes until find the one you need.
Another very cool feature is that it has a shopping list! So once you decide which recipe to cook, you have the option to add it to the shopping list, and all the ingredients needed for it are immediately included. But if there are some of those that you all ready have, you can simply cross it out. The app also comes with a timer option, where you set the time, hide it and when the time comes, it tells you. Simple but useful.

I have never imagined me going to the market with my phone on the hands as a guide for what I need to buy. But the idea is far from scaring me. I think it´s innovative. It gives to the phone another functionality and in my opinion, very useful one. If you want more information go to The official page by clicking here.
One last thing about the video and the app is that it´s not running on the phone yet as it looks like being run on a simulator for developers. But to see how it truly works we have to wait.
