Yummly is free to download in the app store. It’s a recipe and grocery shopping app that’s packed with an extremely wide variety of recipes! It also features a digital recipe box, recipe recommendations, recipe websites and a smart shopping list, that can be accessed at any given time! There isn’t a single in-app purchase, making it 100% FREE!
When you first start using Yummly, you’re given an option to connect with Facebook, Google or nothing. If you don’t want to connect with either, you can just skip that option. I absolutely love how you “favorite” a recipe through Yummly! It’s done by simply tapping the orange circular “Yum” button! Almost like “liking” it on Facebook with their thumbs up button! By doing this, you’re allowing the app itself to learn the types of foods you like, which will eventually allow them to show you various foods you’re likely to love! I also find the smart shopping list a win, win! The fact that foods are broken down like aisles in the grocery store is just perfection. Not to mention how you can actually SCAN a barcode at the grocery store to add a certain item to your list! Talk about technology!
I’m going to give Yummly a 10 out of 10 stars. It’s completely flawless! The smart filter that learns your taste, eventually offering you additional recipes that you’ll LOVE based off your previous interests, has to be my favorite feature! Although, I am a huge fan of the simple migration that separates the recipes into five basic categories. Not to mention how the pictures for each recipe tell a story of their very own! You’ll get suckered into more baking that you ever dreamed of! What do you think about it? Let us know!
