A new feature for iOS and Android users gives even more heft to home cooks’ digital cookbooks: now, if you can’t find the recipe you’re looking for, you can search the web from within Evernote Food’s Explore Recipes search section and clip the recipes you find to My Cookbook. This feature rounds out a host of recent updates designed to make Evernote Food the ultimate digital cookbook app.

Additionally, recipes saved to Evernote as Word documents can now be viewed in Evernote Food, meaning that the app supports every popular format people tend to use for digital recipe collecting: Web Clipping, JPEGs, PDFs, and recipes you manually type and save to a notebook.

Tips for Maximizing My Cookbook

Here are some tips for both iOS and Android users to maximize the sync between Evernote and Evernote Food to curate your recipe collection:

  • Have a treasured collection of grandma’s 3×5 recipe cards? Snap a photo and save the ones you want to your recipe notebook in Evernote, where they’ll automatically push to Evernote Food.
  • Scan or photograph printed recipes into Evernote, then view and cook from them on your phone or tablet using Evernote Food.
  • In addition to clipping recipes within the Evernote Food app, you can also use Evernote’s Web Clipper to save recipes in Evernote. Like magic, the recipes you clip will show up immediately in your Evernote Food cookbook.

Other New Features

A few more great updates in Evernote Food 2.2.2 for iOS (both already available to Android users) are the addition of restaurant directions (once you’ve researched a restaurant and booked a table within the app, you can now easily navigate there from the app), as well as an update to My Meals that lets users pinch-to-zoom when viewing photos in gallery view. More new features to come soon; let us know what you think!
