User’s Question: Is there a way to take a picture of, and show both sides of a #recipe card?

Well, yes and no. Within the app, the best way is to take a picture of the back of the recipe card first, post it with the designation 2/2, part 2, continued, ingredients, or whatever you like best.

Otherwise, if you want to get fancy, there is an app called Frontback that you can download, use, save to your album and then add from your album. There’s another app called InstaCollage that you can use too.

Since it is so quick and painless to add recipes/images (especially if you use the dictation feature that is so much improved in iOS8), your best bet is to probably just take the picture of the front and back, posting the back first so that as users scroll it will appear with the ingredients and initial directions first.

I hope this answers your question. Thanks for downloading ReciFoto, and feel free to ask any other questions, make comments or suggestions for updates. We really do pay attention!

WebFavs: Apple Dessert #Recipes

We like to feature some of our Twitter followers as WebFavs. These are people that have recipe/cooking blogs or websites with some great recipes and photos.  Looking back, there seems to be a nice smattering of apple dessert recipes. Here are a few:

iOS8 and ReciFoto

I have not yet seen ReciFoto on one of the new iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus models yet. I bet it looks great, and makes some of that smaller print easier to read without tapping and pinching out to zoom. If you have used it on one of the new phones, let us know what you think, and send a screenshot of it to support@recifoto.com!

I have an iPhone 5s, and have been enjoying iOS8 so far, and it works great with ReciFoto, helping suggest what word comes next when typing.  The dictation function is also much better than it used to be. It is more accurate, and it shows the words you are saying almost as quickly as you speak them.  Give it a shot, either with ReciFoto, texts, e mails or whatever you do with your iPhone that involves typing.

I did notice one glitch caused by iOS8 with ReciFoto, and it only seems to be a problem with my iPhone, not my iPad*. When you are trying to leave a comment below a recipe, the bar that suggests words covers up the ReciFoto bar that shows your comment and the send button. Now that we know about this problem, we’ll fix it in the next update, along with a few other improvements. In the meantime, if you want to leave a comment, you can log in to www.recifoto.com and log in with the same username and password you use for the app and leave your comments using the website.  When you go back to the app, though, you’ll have to log in again on the app.

Have you noticed any other issues caused by iOS8? Please let us know at support@recifoto.com

*I have since figured out that if you swipe down on the word suggestion bar, you can see the comment that your are typing and press send. Nonetheless, we’ll work on making this work better in the update.
