Nowadays lots of apps are available on the play store. There are plenty of apps where you can order food online. But have you seen an app which has online ordering, food photos and recipe sharing together?
itsPotluck is an unique app available on Android and iOS platform related to food. Using this app not only food bloggers but also non-tech savvy users like homemakers can share their recipes, create their blog and also share pictures. Today I shall share with you more about this awesome app.
The name itsPotluck symbolizes the nature of sharing and enjoying food with one another. itsPotluck started with a website where Indian food bloggers were sharing recipes. I was one of the first food blogger to share recipes on this website. Now they have grown and they have a publishing platform for home cooks to launch their food blog and create a collection of recipes. So home cooks can easily document recipes, click pictures and share with friends.
They are further expanding by allowing home cooks to create a store front and turn their passion into business. With the app, home cooks within an area can be discovered and you can order online and even get food delivered. The app also gives a notification regarding new dishes in the area.
You can download this app on your smartphone from the playstore. Once you download the app you will see 3 features – Order Dish, Recipes and Pic’ed. At the left you will see 3 lines, which when clicked shows a menu which also has login/register, help and share the app to social media.
Clicking on the recipes tab lists all the recipes submitted by food bloggers. There is an option to search for recipes and also add new recipes by logging in. After logging in it displays an editor where you can enter recipe title, recipe details, food category- whether veg/non-veg, food type – Indian/Thai/Italian, etc., dish category – whether appetizers, main course, drinks, etc. and recipe tags.
You can even click a picture with your smartphone and attach with the recipe and submit. I wish the login from Facebook was available on the app. I had difficulty when I forgot password. I had to login to website and retrieve the password.
Using this feature you can take a picture of the food and share with your friends. Simply add the picture either from gallery or click with camera and add, add a title and picture detail. After adding a picture you will get a message that the picture is submitted and you will also get a mail in your inbox.
When you click on this, it first shows you India and Ahmedabad to search for dishes. You can use your current location as per GPS settings.
After which it selects your location, EG Bengaluru. Click on search dishes. Currently this feature works only in Ahmedabad but will start working in other places soon.
Click on filter on right n select recipe type green or red and dish timings and submit. The results are displayed as per search.
You can opt to become a home cook, by clicking on menu on left. Just enter details n submit. They will get back to you.
You can even SHARE your recipes and pic’ed, or even dish deals directly from the app or website, on to networking sites or via message/email.
My account takes you to settings like it lets you edit profile, change photo, change password , sell food online, check your orders, check for notifications, check submitted pictures in my pic’ed, check videos in my videos n recipes in my recipes.
