Recipe Box App
Available for iPad $3.99. Also a "To Go" version for the iPhone.
If you're like me and you have dozens of bookmarked websites with recipes you love, (or want to try) and you want to consolidate them all, this is an awesome app. Very user-friendly interface, easy to navigate and edit and once you've input the recipe, you don't have to be online to look at them.
Basically, you copy/paste a recipe from the internet (or from any other digital document) into their app, then cut it up into the appropriate sections (generally Ingredients and Directions). Or you can just hand type the recipe yourself. There's a great in-app keyboard with keys like "preheat," "chopped," measurements, etc. to save you some typing. I'm actually addicted to plugging in as many recipes as I can right now, so I don't have to sift through all my books.
You can also import photos from your albums or from the internet.
It's great if you're out shopping and you forget what ingredients you need. Personally, I love propping it up near the kitchen, instead of having to run across to my computer, while dripping ingredients all over the floor.
