Watch Cooking Channel app review



If you're tired of eating the same old boring meals it's time to step out of your comfort zone and get creative. The Watch Cooking Channel app for your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone can help make that possible because you'll be able to watch all kinds of Cooking Channel shows right through the app. The app provides you with a hub of cooking-related shows that are both ones you'll find on the channel and web originals. And don't worry; you aren't just getting snippets of these shows! You'll be able to watch full episodes.

The best chocolate apps for iPad

The app's most recent update included a number of bug fixes and now supports additional TV service providers. The app currently has three out of five stars from customers, which leads one to believe that there is still room for improvement. Reading through the comments it seems users would like to see more features/options added to this app.

Features that Work for You

The Watch Cooking Channel app isn't loaded with features but what it does offer is certainly useful. For instance you'll be able to watch clips from a variety of chefs and shows without having to log in. Of course when you log in you can stream full episodes. If you need to suddenly stop watching a show mid-way through you can pick up where you left off at a later date. As you start to explore the shows you'll likely find some you really enjoy so you can make a watch list of all your faves.

The best iPad apps for foreign dishes

Additional features include the fact the app supports AirPlay, you can email videos to your friends, you can sync the videos across all your devices, and there is closed captioning. Keep in mind there isn't a list of recipes in the app; rather, you are watching the chefs cook them in the various shows.
