Top 50 Food Apps for Moms
Whether you're placating hungry kiddos, planning the week's menu, or getting ready for an all-too-rare date night, you're constantly answering the question: What's for dinner? Luckily, with its ability to keep you organized, map store routes, and gather reviews and recipes in seconds, your smartphone was built to solve this daily dilemma.
For Babble's roundup of the top 50 iPhone, iPad, and Android food apps for moms, we tried to cover the range of food-related thinking: from grocery shopping to meal preparation, all the way to food allergies and other dietary specifics that might be concerns for your family. In the end we were happy to find that many of our picks were available across not just the iPhone and iPad, but also the Android - because, unlike smartphone preferences, the love of a good meal is universal. We've broken down our top 50 food apps by category, price, and platform (iPhone, iPad, Android, or all of the above). We tried to find free versions of the apps wherever possible, but the truth is, many free apps either include ads or limit the number of features you can use. So if the paid version of an app felt stronger, then that's the app we recommended. We hope you have as much fun checking these out as we did testing them.

Egg Timer Free
As cooking timers go, Egg Timer Free is one of the most highly specific you’ll find – but then again, cooking the perfect egg requires a timer that’s designed for the task. Whether you’re going for hard-boiled, soft in the middle, or any range in between, you simply enter your egg size, your starting temperature, and the doneness you’re seeking, and Egg Timer does the math for you. You can even boil multiple eggs at once – the Android notification bar alerts you when each is ready – and there’s also an option to alter your cooking time based on altitude. While we admit those are some cool features, we’re mostly excited about never having to deal with a green yolk or the smell of sulfur again.
