Shopping Lists

April 23, 2011 in FAQ, Features

One of my main goals in developing the Lazy Cookbook was that my various devices could easily pull the information that I needed, when I needed it.

From any device users have full access to most of the Lazy Cookbook features. However I will also streamline the user experience based on the device.

For example when I access the Lazy Cookbook on my iPod Touch (and not the iPad or a computer) I am generally wanting to go to the Shopping List (i.e., I bring the iPod Touch with me while shopping).

So when a user logs into the Lazy Cookbook now from a ‘smaller screen’ device they are taken to the Shopping List directly. As well the Shopping List interface is adjusted slightly for smaller screens, removing unneeded features at the store (like adding recipes to the list) andĀ focusingĀ more on checking items off your list. As well there is scratch pad to quickly type notes (in case you just remembered you needed something on the way into the store and did not want to forget).

Over time more streamlining will go into place though I’ll also try (when possible) to make sure users can access the full site from any device, if they want.

Questions or suggestions? Please let me know.
