My CookBook: View your recipes on the wrist ['Watch' This App]

Cooking with a smartphone or tablet in the kitchen is quite awesome but it can be awfully messy, too. While we love being able to swipe through instructions, watch videos, or simply check off boxes, it’s not always easy to do when you hands are wet, greasy, or gross. Thankfully, some Android developers with recipe apps were quick to understand that Android Wear can help things along. Such is the case with My CookBook which recently added support for the wearable platform.

My CookBook lets users create and store recipes in a digital cookbook that’s backed up and synchronized across various devices. Available in both free and paid versions, the basic account allows for up to 105 recipes and 8 shopping lists. Not only can you view these from your phone but you can also log into the website to edit or share them. With hundreds of recipe websites integrated and supported, My CookBooks is a simple way to pull from already existing platforms.

Planning a week’s worth of meals? The shopping list feature lets you compile from multiple recipes into one handy list. Speaking of hands, the recent update brings forth Android Wear support. Now it’s easier than ever to view your recipes as you’re preparing a meal. Keep that smartphone tucked away safely and out of reach of the hot grease, water, or batter.
