Love cooking? Then you know how hard it is to find new recipes. Furthermore, it's even harder to share those recipes with your friends or family, especially when you are on the move. If you are into cooking, let go of all your worries about finding new recipes as we have curated some of the best recipe apps that you can download on your Android smartphone or tablet. These applications will not only help you find new recipes but also share them with the people that matter. 

Must-Have Recipes

This application gives you access to more than 500 recipes for free. Not just that, you get your hands on 75 how-to videos that show you how to cook a warm, hearty meal just by using your mobile phone. What makes this application stand out from other apps on the list is that Must-Have recipes is gorgeously designed and has an interface that is clean and easy to use. One of the best parts I found while using the app was that it sorts recipes into these neat categories like Pantry Raid, 30-Minute dinners, slow cookers, etc. This is very helpful if you don't know what your next meal is going to be.


BigOven is the app that gives you access to over 250,000 recipes for free right from your Android device. The best part about the application is that, to get started, you don't need an account. This means that you can have access to all the best recipes without entering your email or other details like you have to do on many other services. That said, having an account on the service has its own perks. BigOven allows you to create your own recipe collection that you can save, sync, and share with your friends. One of the best features of this app is its ability to let you scan handwritten recipes and upload them online. This is definitely worth a try if you are looking for a full-fledged service for your entire recipe needs.
