iPhone for Verizon- The Best Food Apps for New iPhone Users

By brooklynsupper |

So the big tech news today is that Verizon is going to start offering the Apple iPhone on February 10. As the biggest cell service provider, Verizon is sure to bring a lot of new users to the iPhone. If you’re one of them and a Family Kitchen reader, you’re probably wondering what are the best food-related apps to get for your new iPhone. Well, here are some of Brooklyn Supper’s favorites.

How to Cook Everything- Based on Mark Bittman’s popular cookbook of the same name, this app has it all- recipes, shopping lists, search by ingredient, timers.

FishPhone- Whether you’re pregnant, nursing, or just concerned about the sustainability of the seafood you eat, FishPhone has all the information you need to make smart choices about the fish you buy and it’s impact on your body and the Earth. It also offers cooking tips and wine pairings.

gUnit- When one of your pots is boiling over and something smells like it’s burning and you’re not sure if it’s in the toaster oven or the regular oven, the last thing you need is to have to mentally convert a recipe that serves 4 into one that serves ten. gUnit quickly and easily converts metric and English units of volume, length, time, weight, etc. An indispensable tool for the home cook.

Butcher- What’s the difference between hanger steak and skirt steak? Butcher is here to help. While it’s not exhaustive, Butcher provides an excellent overview that can be a real help when you’re confused in the meat aisle.

Pair It! Food and Wine Guide- If you’re like me, you like wine with dinner, but you’re not much of a sommelier. Pair It! makes choosing the right wine for your meal or the right meal for your wine simple. With a straightforward interface and helpful, easy-to-understand information about wine and food, this is the best wine pairing app available.

    Thanks for sharing these apps. I laughed when I read gUnit’s description LOL. I could really use Pair It too, as my husband and I love wine but don’t really know much about it. Another app that helps me a lot is Intuition ( It’s a total life saver; it helps me manage and organize my tasks, to-dos, appointments, even my shopping and long term goals. It’s really easy to use plus it’s cute and free!
