With Thanksgiving coming up this Thursday, many kitchens will be filled with the scents of roasting turkey, steaming mashed potatoes, baked green bean casseroles, and freshly seasoned iPads. Wait. No seasoning – but an iPad or mobile device could be a useful tool in your kitchen, right up there with spatulas and thermometers!
Mahalo’s Thanksgiving Recipes HD app provides video-based tutorials on how to make Thanksgiving dinner. You start with an intro course, then graduate to “Turkey 101.” You’re free to explore “Alternative Cooking Methods,” like the famous “turducken” (duck stuffed inside a chicken stuffed inside the turkey). Lessons also feature written recipes and tips, so you don’t have to watch the entire video as you’re cooking. You can download recipes, favorite them, and mark them as complete.
Turkey Day apps highlight an essential trait of useful application development: Identify a need and customize your app to address that need. Sometimes it helps to think about the everyday life of your customers and find a way that your company can address a need through an app.
