Windows 8.1 App Watch: Jamie’s Recipes

appwatch_jamies_recipes

British chef Jamie Oliver is one of the biggest names in food, and his recipes have recently landed on the Windows Store in the form of the Jamie’s Recipes app.

The richly designed application comes with a large collection of recipes, complete with step-by-step instructions, photos, even HD video guides. Fire up the app and you land at the hub that provides access to all your recipes and favorites.

More on that later, but first a selection from the official description:

“My app is all about giving you the tools and inspiration to create really great-tasting food easily at home. With retina imagery for each and every recipe step, as well as HD video guides for some of the tougher techniques, you really can’t go wrong.

You’ll find a whole library of recipes to choose from, from classic comfort food and beautiful baking recipes to festive treats, super-quick suppers and a whole lot more – there really is something for everyone.”

Retina imagery? Come on!

More than 200 recipes are available, and the selection is encompasses all sorts of tastes and dishes. They are grouped as packs, though, and while an initial pack of 10 is available for free, the remaining can be unlocked for a small fee, $2.49 or thereabouts.

But hey, if you are into it, then you are into it.

Overall, though, this is a quality addition to the Windows Store, and the best thing about this app is its design — the content is lush, and navigation breezy. Like all good apps, it supports all versions of Windows 8.1, including ARM based ones, making it a perfect download for Surface tablets.

    If you enjoy cooking or food in general, this is easily worth $2.49. The pictures alone are making me hungry! Looks awesome.

    Is it $2.49 a pack or for all the recipes? It looks like it’s just for a specific pack on there, which would be more than I am willing to pay for 10 recipes when I could probably find a lot of them for free.

    The pictures from that screenshot are astounding. This looks like one of those apps that’ll be worth the money. I like what I see.

  • Jason Claven

    200 recipes available! That’s enough to get me interested. I’ll be downloading ASAP.
