Here we bring you a list of the best cooking apps for Android.
The Cookpad app is one of the veteran apps in this field, that’s why we open the list with it. It’s somewhat like a social network, but with cooking recipes. In this case, it’s users who upload their own recipes, and try other’s, then score the recipes and recommend them; they can share photos and make comments on the recipe in question. It’s very easy to use, quick and simple. All you need to write is what you’d like to cook and it will search among its more than 100,000 recipes available to give you as many options as it can for you to cook.
With over 350,000 recipes in its possession, BigOven is one of the best cooking apps for Android there are. But besides from having hundreds of thousands of recipes, it also boasts several features that make it very attractive; of course, the majority of these are not available in the free version, but if you enjoy cooking, paying a membership won’t be that bad of an investment. The app has features such as making shopping lists, and have a weekly Recipe Organizer, if you are a methodical and organized cook, but you can also simply enjoy the massive recipe library.
This is an app with an operation that’s different to most cooking apps for Android, but that only makes it better. What’s the app like? Very simple: while most apps give users a recipe and they look for the ingredients, with this app, you provide the ingredients you have at home and it provides a list of recipes you can do with these ingredients. Because of this, we love this app since it’s made to improvise and experiment. Besides from that, it’s totally free, which makes it simply fabulous.
Based on TV shows recipes, this app offers tons of very detailed and structured recipes, with videos and pictures, so that you can see the step by step of the recipe. The hook of this app lies in the recipes, which are those you see on TV, made by important, recognized international chefs, so you’ll learn from the very best. Other perk would be a unit converter and multiple watches to monitor everything to perfection. The app is available completely for free and has many recipes; a downside to it would be that videos can be reproduced only inside of the United States. So, if you’re not within American territory, you won’t be able to fully enjoy the app.

This app is made so that with time, it’ll adapt to your tastes; the more you use it, the more suited the recommendations will be for you. One of the best features? It comes with an “instacart” integrated, so you can simply upload your shopping list to the instacart, and depending on where you live, you can have the groceries delivered to your house within an hour. This app is just wonderful; their criteria, excellent, and its interface, very friendly. It’s definitely some of the best you can find on the Play Store.
