An Assistant in the Kitchen

The Recipe Genie app is able to work as your very own kitchen assistant who is on-hand whenever you need recipe ideas. It’s not always easy to come up with tasty meal ideas especially when most people live such busy lives that they don’t have a chance to go through their recipe books and websites looking for dishes. The way this app works is that you set it up by importing each of the ingredients that you currently have in your kitchen. Once this is done the app then is able to provide you recipes based on the ingredients you already have so there is no need to rush out to the store.

This app requires iOS 7.0 or later to use and currently has a perfect five star rating from users who rave about how simple the user interface is, how helpful it is, and that it's rather innovative. Because the app is brand-new there are no updates at this time.
