[prMac.com] Vienna, Austria - Incredible Bee today is pleased to announce the release of Yum 4, an update to its cooking companion for Mac OS X. Yum allows users to organize recipes, create shopping lists and copy recipes to their iPhone. The new version offers a redesigned user interface, cloud recipes and smart folders.
Redesigned user interface:
The user interface was redesigned from the ground up by Apple Design Award winner Dietmar Kerschner. The new interface features a corkboard to browse recipes by photo, the ability to search recipes with simple text or advanced filters, and an option to view recipes in full screen.
When you've run out of cooking ideas for dinner, you can tap the Yum community for inspiration and download recipes shared by other users. You can also share your favorite recipes with the community.
Similar to smart playlists in iTunes, Yum lets you create folders of recipes based on criteria such as text in the name, a certain ingredient or a given rating. Yum will update these folders automatically as you add, remove or edit recipes. For example, you could create a smart folder of recipes with chicken as an ingredient and have the highest rating.
