Recipe book on ipad.
My wife insists on keeping millions of magazines as they contain one recipe she wants.Posted 4 years ago
I can scan the page and make a folder in the photo album of the recipes.
Is there better way of doing it?
Yes I know she could tear the page out and put it in a folder but that would be too easy.zilog6128Subscriber
I use an app called Paprika to store all my recipes. It’s great, even makes your shopping list for you! If you can find the recipe online it’s a doddle as it can import a recipe straight from a website, otherwise you have to type it in manually. Obviously this is a bit more work than just storing a scan of the recipe but it makes organising/searching/etc a lot easier, plus it means you can easily customise the recipe.Posted 4 years agojambalayaSubscriber
Scanning the recipes is a good idea, then recycle paper magazine.
What you do next is up to you, you can copy/export the images into iBooks and organize by type (e.g. European, Asian, Main Course, Desert etc). On a Mac (and probably windows too) you can create your own PDF’s and add recipes to one file or perhaps one PDF per type as above. I keep stuff like this in iBooks as I find it easier to navigate than Photos organised by Events or Albums.Posted 4 years agojambalayaSubscriber
@zippy – that’s right I remember your MBP thread now
Evernote has been recommended to me but I thought it was quite expensive so I never signed up
For my iBooks PDF idea you can do as follows;
On your MBP you can use Preview to create and maintain PDF files (under file menu – Open file of scan, then export as pdf, when you have a pdf you can add new pages and re export/save). This PDF document can then be loaded into iBooks and snync’d with the iPad via iTunes (inc wirelessly)Posted 4 years agoCountZeroMember
Another Genius Scan user here, just scan the recipes, then put them into iBooks: basically you use the app the take a scan/photo, then the app puts a grid across, allowing you to drag the corners in to the corners of the page, or wherever, you crop, and it saves a PDF, which you can then put into iBooks. I use it for scanning band setlists, so I can email a copy to a mate.Posted 4 years agospacemonkeyMember
I’ve never paid for it. The free account is pretty good
+1 Evernote too. Been using the free version for years as it’s always done what I wanted it for. I have about 200 recipes on their (tagged according to chef, style of food, type of dish etc). Easy to use as it does indeed handle PDFs and scans etc.
While Evernote houses my old recipes, all the new ones get bunged into Paprika so my vote would be to use both in a similar way.Posted 4 years ago
