    Default Would you Buy This? (iFood) Feedback Please.
    Hi all,

    I am soon to launch my App on the App store targeting the Bachelor. ($AU4.99)

    This App is a 2 week fully inclusive cooking & recipe guide for all your bachelor needs. Cooking for yourself, (B/fast, Lunch, Dinner) to Dating, Entertaining friends (BBQ) & to "Impress that Girl" on a special night with your cooking, entree main & dessert, + a wine match for the food (2 courses) App will be updated for the seasons, on all locations.

    As this is my first ever attempt at this sort of thing, I don't expect to become rich from it. But I will but it on MMI for feedback from users whom may get some use out of it & give me some feed back on your thoughts + improvements.

    A little about myself, I am a Chef of 22 yrs experience, now a Cooking Teacher, trained in Australia (Hyatt Hotels) fined tuned my skills in Europe for 8 yrs (Michelin Star Restaurants) & USA in Fine Dinning Restaurants. All my recipes are fool proof, very easy to follow, Grocery list, built in timer for cooking times & Prep time, choose from Cel or Feh & will work for the first time cooks.

    Stay tuned for a link to this app, all feedback will be greatly appreciated.

    Questions please don't hesitate to PM me.

    I'd likely use it. Something else a great many friends say is lacking in these sorts of proggies is the ability to calculate calories based on ingredients and volume. If you could add that sort of thing, you'd be far ahead of the group.

    Cheers for the feedback... I would like to bump the price up a little (with the huge amount of hours I have put into this, BUT enjoyed every minute of doing it) as this is my 1st app & the market I wish to aim at, think I will keep it around this price.

    But be sure you will be my first tester. Thanks again Nick

    depends who your targeting most. The people that really need this app for your price qoute. Are the app junkies that buy everything that's .99 cents. The dollar apps have out sold the others by a great margin. So you sell 100 for $4.00 or 1000 for .99 cents. It's a tricky but clever thought. Also as a food lover Id buy it for more if it does all that's promised and gets me her jeans. LOL

    When you say 2 week... what is meant by this? Does that mean you go 2 weeks without repeating a recipe a single time? The price is probably good, but I would start at 00.99 and then work my way up once it becomes more popular. Even at a dollar if half the people that own an iphone pick this app up it will net you a pretty good chunk of change. Maybe make different styles in different cookbooks, that way you can sell more of them.

    Sounds like a good idea, BUT...

    For something like this, where you are going to be providing updated content, you really want a system where you have a subscription model. $2.99 a month or something, not just a $5 flat fee up front.

    Good luck with your app.

    Yep 2 weeks without repeating anything at all, many different cuisines will be covered & other options if you don't like that style of food.

    With the update content, to tell you the truth I have no idea, will need to look into this further, might have to go in other avenues.

    No bachelors in general don't cook. You wouldn't really get a sense of that living up in fairy tale land above the magic border.

    Wow, you actually admit there's other countries besides the US? I'm impressed. I cook, and I'm a bachelor, as do all of my bachelor friends. Maybe we above the "magic border" are a little bit less lazy, but I'd say most American bachelors would also have an issue with your blanket statement.

    I will buy it. I cook all the time. The issue I face is getting into a rut where I run out of things to cook so I always google recipes. This will eliminate having to search for 2 weeks.

    This will also help at the grocery store so that I can make an intelligent shopping list instead of being random. Count me in.

    Here are some other thoughts on a recipe/cooking app: Recipe App - Mac Forums . One great idea would be to type in the ingredients that you have, and the app would make suggestions for dishes that you can make! That would be extremely helpful!
