Phone Apps related to food

I uploaded Mark Bittmans "How To Cook Everything" app to my iphone lastnight. One of the best food apps yet. Easy to use, lots of recipes at my fingertips.

What food-related app's are other chowhounds using?

    1. Butcher, for iPod. Good reference for meat cuts.

        Yelp and Urbanspoon to find restaurants.

      2. How do you use Bittman's app? I got it on free app day, and have tried to use it a few times, but I can never find anything I'm looking for. Would love some tips on how to get the most out of it.

        1. Oysterpedia. Foodspotting. Yelp. Opentable.

          1. Pepperplate - keeps the recipes I find online in a single location, accessible from any of my devices/computers.

                I love and hate Pepperplate. I love it for all the obvious reasons but it would be so easy -- SO EASY! -- to make it so much better. It's no particularly stable on my Android and a lot of the desktop functionality is missing on the small-screen version. And even on the desktop, you can't search by ingredient, you need another application to get nutrition info, it's a huge pain to share recipes and there's no social element at all.

                  Just FYI - you can search by ingredient if you add keywords to the recipes (eg chicken, beans, buttermilk). There was recently another discussion about how people tag recipes for easy access -

                  As for sharing, I can't comment on the Android version, but on the desktop and iPhone/iPad versions, there is a button that allows you to email a recipe to someone. I do this to send my DH directions for cooking stuff I've prepped and left in the fridge.
