Caramelized - App Review



Caramelized is a taster (apologies for the pun) for cookbooks.

It is beautifully presented, although it also has certain idiosyncrasies (I guess all chefs do).

Now for the ACIDS test:

Aesthetics
From the home screen you can install some excerpts from 8 different cookbooks. These then give you a sample of their contents.

Taking as an example 'The best seafood from the cold clear waters of Norway', you are presented not only with recipes but also detailed information. This includes basic hygiene, required utensils, wine with food, and a host of other topics. There are some beautiful photographs that really make this a pleasure to peruse.

A minor quirk is that the font sizes are not identical across all pages, and the pages are not 'pinch-able' (so you can't resize them).

Cost
There is no charge for the basic app and the tasters. To receive full contents, you need to make in-App purchases.

Indispensability
I guess it's easier to clean a greasy finger mark off your iPad screen than from a paper book.

Dependability
The App only works on an iPad and only in portrait mode. Some of the books, despite a title such as 'Very British - Kiss Me Cakes' are actually in German.

Security
No issues.

ACIDS Test Rating:

Just a taster for the real thing.
