Healthy Desserts Review
Explore and create some stunning, healthy desserts with your iPhone and iPad
Explore and create some stunning, healthy desserts with your iPhone and iPad.
The App Store is full recipes apps, all trying to offer something different. Healthy Desserts (aside from having an incredibly enticing name) has opted for some superior aesthetics, combining clever design with stunning photography that’s sure to leave you more than tempted to create one of the 48 recipes on offer here.
The app is centred around a photo grid, displaying each of the 48 recipes in photographic form. Tapping on any of the photos will bring up additional information about the recipe as well as an ingredients list and steps for creating it. The whole interface is highly intuitive and we were able to pick it up without any instruction. On the iPhone app, tapping the top-left icon brings up the recipes in list view as well as a search bar for sorting by name. It would’ve been nice to see a few more search options here, though. Each recipe has a set of credentials (Vegan, Gluten Free etc) and sorting by these would be a highly useful addition to an already great app.
Healthy Desserts is a universal app and it looks just as great on the iPad. In fact, the recipe text is a little more legible on the bigger screen, making it the perfect kitchen companion – with the iPhone version acting as a great reference while you’re shopping for ingredients. The only difficulty this app presented was choosing what delicious dessert to make!
Healthy Desserts is one of the most beautiful and tantalising iOS recipe apps we’ve seen yet.
