The foodgawker app allows you to tap into inspiration and creativity where food is concerned. As mentioned you're given more than 330,000 recipes that are submitted by literally thousands of food bloggers from around the world. Scroll through the images to find what appeals to you and then you can tap on it to find the recipe. The app is all about visual browsing.

This app has recently been updated and requires iOS 7.0 or later to use. Although the app is free there are in-app purchases that provide you with complete access. These range in price from $0.99 to $1.99. The app scores very high with users getting 4.5 out of five stars. In its most recent update a number of bugs were fixed for smoother performance.

Using the App

Searching through the recipes is smooth, fast, and a whole lot of fun thanks to the user interface. In this free version you'll be able to view up to 96 posts per screen. The in-app purchase gives you unlimited posts on the screen. Some of the features of the app include infinite scrolling, the app is updated on a daily basis, you can translate posts into your native language, and you can save photos to your favorites. When you come across a recipe you enjoy and would like to share it with friends and family you can do so by email, Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest.
