Epicurious (iPod App)

Epicurious is a really cool cooking app that lets you view recipes for dinners, desserts, and sides as well as search. The search tool is very handy because you can put in specific ingredients. For example, if you are making chocolate chip cookies, the main ingredient you put in will be chocolate and then for meal you would put dessert and for type you would put cookie. For keyword you could put chocolate chip cookie. When you hit the search button it will tell you how many recipes you will find and you can find out if you made your search too specific or too general. I recommend two recipes: Chocolate-Peanut Butter Chip cookies and Best Cocoa Brownies.

I give it 4 out or 5 stars since it is slightly slow in loading but overall it is a very good app.

Flip It! (Imran)

Flip it! - Flip it! is a great app that lets you create flip books. It is a very easy app to use. First you draw a picture then you click on the button to go to the next page, it shows where you're last drawing was on the last page so you know where to draw. The free version only allows you to do 2 books at a time and you have to limit your book to 10 pages whereas the full version only costs  $0.99 and you have unlimited books and unlimited pages. Overall Flip it! is a great app and it is a lot of fun. I would give this app 5 out of 5 stars.

*tip- You have to be patient as it takes some time to make the actual flip book.

Here is a sample of my work
