Main features of RecipeBook App for Windows 8 and 8.1…
When you install and run the RecipeBook app on your device, you will be presented with an empty interface, with only the button to add a recipe.
In the screenshot below, I have already added a recipe and that’s why you see the tile of a recipe and then the big orange add recipe button.
In the above screen, to add a recipe, simply click on the orange button, and you will see a bar fly up from the bottom of the screen, which will allow you to add a recipe via URL. You can see this below.
Simply enter the URL of the recipe that you wish to add, and click on the OK button. It may take a few seconds for the recipe to show up in the main interface of the app, so be a bit patient here. Once the recipe is finally visible in the app, you will see an interface resembling the screenshot below.
You can now click on any of the recipe that you have added to get started with creating it. Once you click on the tile of a recipe, you will be presented with the recipe details screen where you can see the number of servings that it prepares, the ingredients required, the instructions and the nutritional information about the recipe.
You can see all of this in the screenshot below.
You can go back to the main screen with the back arrow button at the top left.
