Chef Panda 1.0.0 Released

Chef Panda is my first Android application. The application collects recipes of some popular Chinese food. The first release comes with Featured recipes, which contains some most popular Chinese recipes; Categories, which allows one to easily browse all the recipes in the app; Random, which generates a menu consists of 8 recipes randomly.

The idea of having a recipe mobile app has been in my mind for several months. I think it would be nice to have recipes one can bring along to the supermarket or when one is cooking.

The ingredients of a recipe would help one to buy materials for cooking and the directions would guide one through.

I still remember days I wrote down the ingredients on a piece of paper before going to supermarket. And when I was learning cooking, I did my Google before I start, then run back from the kitchen to my laptop to refresh my memory from time to time.

Ok, now with Chef Panda, I can finally say “bye bye” to those days. 🙂

I also got some plans to upgrade the app. First, to add more recipes, of course. Current recipes are quite limited.

Second, to add favourites feature. As the number of recipes grows, I think it’s useful for one to store his/her favourite recipes.

Third, add history stories. I think one attraction of many Chinese food is its long history and usually a beautiful story behind it. I think this is going to be a cool feature to have. But it will take some time.

Also, I found the random function only works when the user first select the random tab. After that, the random menu won’t change. I will correct this in the next release.

Hope there’re somebody likes the app. 🙂

    hi. Your Chef Panda 1.0.0 is a cool invention. I believe for those who has the passion in cooking/baking , in whipping up a good meal for their family or for those w/o exp. working in the kitchen will find this app very useful.As a comsumer, i will be looking forward to one with regular add-on receipes if not a wide range of cuisine across the globe such as French, Italian food,Jap not to forget Korean food. Will it be possible to a feature by ingredient, say egg the recipes using the core ingredient egg will be listed out? Looking forward to the upgraded version.

      This app is for Chinese food only. I’m not familiar with all other kinds of food. Thank you for your support anyway.
