There are a few typical foods/dishes that most people cook when camping but that isn't the be-all and end-all. The Camping Recipes app for your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone can open your eyes to a variety of tasty dishes you can add to your trip. All of the recipes you'll find within the app have been specifically created for camping which means they are fast, easy, and can be cooked outdoors. Get ready to wow everyone at your campsite with your creations.
When it comes to getting away, a big part of the experience is the food that you eat. Just because you're camping doesn't mean you have to settle for a handful of typical dishes. The Camping Recipes app provides a variety of simple to follow and easy to prepare recipes that can be done outdoors. They are dishes that can be prepared right over a campfire, in a Dutch oven, on a camping stove, or grill. There is no need for any special equipment; it's just the standard items you would take with you. These dishes can really enhance your experience and also give you a lot of pride in what you're able to create outdoors and in a natural environment.
The app hasn't been updated in more than three years with its last one featuring a few minor enhancements and additional recipes. At this point the app is in need of more updates simply for the fact it needs refreshing. The app doesn't have a customer rating or customer comments.
Cooking With the App
The Camping Recipes app is ideal for taking with you as it doesn't need an Internet connection, something you likely wouldn't have while camping unless you have an expensive data plan. It's very quick and easy to browse through, and all the recipes are quick and simple. Of course you can share recipes with your family and friends through the app if you like.
I don't find the amount of recipes is huge; again this is where the app could really do with some updating. Some of the dishes you'll learn about include frying pan cookies, camp chili, biscuit and pancake mix, venison Goulash, foil dinner, and Dutch oven trout. There are recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, appetizers, and desserts so you can fill your daily menu. The user interface is quite basic and really not very inspiring, which is a shame because it makes the app feel less engaging.
You are given a collection of camping-friendly recipes
There is no need to bring special equipment to make these recipes
The app is easy to navigate
There is no need for an Internet connection
The app is in need of updating both content- and user interface-wise
Recipes are easy to follow but lack in visual interest
The Camping Recipes app for your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone is a handy way to acquaint yourself with a number of camping-friendly recipes. I feel as though this one really needs more content and some enhancements all-around.
