Have you seen Cooking Light magazines new mobile Scan It, Cook It App for your smartphone?
With the Digimarc App installed, you can flip through the magazine and if you see a recipe you like, hold your smartphone above a recipe photo, and it will auto-magically recognize the image and save the recipe and photo to your MyRecipes file.
How simple is that?
I love the idea that you can not only save recipes, but share them or make a grocery list with just one click.
It’s so convenient!
I didn’t blog about it until now, because I wanted to use it for a few months to see how well it worked. I can tell you ~ I’ve been using it for several months now, and it works great!
I love finding unique Apps for my Android smartphone. However, it is important to always remember to use your Android phone safely, especially if you are going to be using Apps that connect to the internet. One of my friends recently told me that using a VPN is an excellent way to boost my internet security and improve the privacy of my connection, while at the same time protecting my data from hackers. For more information about the benefits of using a VPN for your smartphone, take a look at this guide to the best vpns for android.
Want to give the App a try for yourself? All you need to do is download the free Digimarc Discover App to your smartphone, start the Digimarc app when see a recipe you like in Cooking Light, hold your camera phone 4-6 inches from the photo and let it auto-focus and take a picture. It’s that simple.
You must have a MyRecipes account set up (it’s free too!), and its really easy to get.
p.s. This is not a paid or sponsored post. I’m sharing this because I actually love and use the app, and Cooking Light is my all-time favorite cooking magazine!
Thanks to all the folks at Cooking Light & Digimarc for making our busy lives easier!
