You can use Time2Cook for any type of meal, including Christmas Dinner, Thanksgiving, a dinner party, a Sunday Roast, or even something as simple as a fish pie. Time2Cook is designed to be simple and easy to use, even for those who are not comfortable with technology and may even be a little scared of using their iPhone!
You start by quickly entering a brief description of each cooking step and when it is due to happen. And then press "Go" and you will be sent a reminder for each step at the appropriate time.
Running early or late? Not a problem - you can quickly adjust all your meal timings forward or back by the appropriate amount.
Want to use your iPhone for other things while the meal is running? That's fine - the reminders will still work even when you are using another app or the phone is locked.
Need help getting started? There are four example meals included (Christmas Dinner, Dinner Party, Roast Dinner and Fish Pie). But it is worth pointing out that Time2Cook is NOT a recipe app - the examples are just outlines to get you started, and you will need to adjust the timings to suit your needs, especially for meat to ensure that it is cooked properly.
Want to repeat a meal that you've previously cooked using Time2Cook? That's easy - every meal is automatically saved for future use, and you can store as many meals as you want.
Other features include:
* Time2Cook is a free app, so no need for you to pay anything.
* Time2Cook has a timeline view that is easy to read and use.
* Time2Cook allows you to enter cooking times directly, or calculate them relative to another step (e.g. "put oven on" 5 minutes before "put turkey in oven").
