    this app is just a bunch of mediocre recipes. it has no useful information about bbqing( heat control, times or temps,) i dont recommend this to anyone, for any reason, even though its free today. You’re better off googling any questions or uncertainties you have, after all, you obviously own a droid

    Wouldn’t call this an app, Shockingly bad, August 3, 2011

    First, horribly written UI, this is nothing more than some photoshopped pictures with recipes and ingredients. At first I thought this app didn’t work on any of my devices, turns out I wasn’t using it right.

    To begin you are pressing “buttons” to get to the recipe, once you find what you are looking for, you see a picture of the dish. Now after pressing so many buttons, I sat there waiting for the screen to change or an option to pop up but nothing happened. I tapped the screen, swiped at it a little, then clicked menu. It appeared to be the only way to navigate, choose menu then ingriedients, then instructions, then picture. Why? Why not put them on 1 page? As it turns out, once the picture comes up the navigation method changes to swiping side to side to progress the page (as pointed out in the comments below) Why the change in navigation style without warning? It confused me and many others. It is a “rookie” mistake and one that would have been caught had the app been tested properly. Finding out that swyping side to side once you select the recipe improves my rating a bit.

    Next, apparently this “app” has absolutely no other functions or features whatsoever other than an option to save your own recipe, which is hardly a feature. Otherwise, Just a short list of simple recipes. I’d barely call them recipes because if you arent familiar with grilling this tells you nothing about actual barbecuing or cooking. No temperatures, how to use charcoal vs wood or other grilling methods nothing. Barely enough information to guess at and hope it comes out like the picture. The title and description imply otherwise, I expected something on the level of a mini-iCookbook at least.

    Each recipe has a list of ingredients, picture and short instructions that might as well say “put ingredients on grill and cook”. Thats it for a lot of them, seriously. No other content or functions. It really is nothing more than photoshopped pictures with words superimposed on them, if this meets your criteria for a 5 star paid app, well, alrighty then, but to me it screams either extreme laziness or this is someones first app as a test and was never really meant for sale or is unfinished.

    So with the bad UI, the poorly written recipes (and no, I don’t believe the dev meant this app for experienced chefs only who don’t need temperatures or measurements or anything else expected in a recipe) and the lack of any other functions other than displaying text and pictures (well, you can save your own, but why would you), not too mention a total lack of design (should hire a professional designer).I cannot rate this higher than 2. It’s apps like these that make Android apps look inferior to iPhone apps.

    It’s no offense to the developer, I just don’t think it was fair of Amazon to put this up on this promotion before he/she was really ready. Check out the other 19 apps, they are all the same thing just different cuisines. It’s a good starter/test app, but no where near ready for prime time, once the developer learns a little more, maybe, but now, it’s too soon.

    Very buggy on my transformer but ok for my Thunderbolt. For it being nothing but words photoshopped on pictures I’m surprised it has any technical difficulties at all. At this stage though it’s bad, shockingly bad.

    Nothing Useful Here, August 3, 2011

    Mind you, I have got every free app since Amazon free apps has started, and this is my first review I felt I had to give. I was honestly excited to get a bbq app but… this really is as bad as everyone is saying. Just to give you a idea of how had it is.

    Step 4: Turn ribs over “every now and then”…….

    Another one said:
    Step 1: Prepare sauce
    Step 2: Preheat grill
    Step 3: Grill
    Step 4: Eat with sauce while hot

    I uninstalled after those two disappointments.

    Thanks guys…..
