Basil 3 is here and keeps you cooking on your iPhone

We have been praising the Basil recipe app since its release a few years ago and the app has received some super updates since then. From the support for photos and Dropbox to the redesigned interface and Smart Timer enhancements, Basil has continued to receive many improvements over time. This week is no exception as the app is turning up the heat with awesome new features.

Universal Basil 3

One of the handiest improvements you will see in this version of Basil is that it is now a universal app. That’s right; iPad users who loved the app for years can now access it on their iPhone and take it with them to the supermarket. And of course, what would having Basil on both devices be without iCloud sync? That new feature has also been added so that you can access your favorite recipes as well as your grocery list from either device.

To accommodate the new iOS 9 multitasking feature for iPad Air 2 users, the app now has split screen view support. So, open your Basil app alongside your calendar to plan out your meals or Safari as you search for new cookware. One more great feature has been added that will make it even easier to save recipes. This is the new Save Extension which allows you to save recipes to Basil from an app or site like Safari or Twitter.

Basil is a really nice app with a clean, smooth interface and useful features. The Smart Timers make cooking simple and you can also add your own recipes, edit existing ones, or include some notes for your next meal preparation.

So, get cooking because Basil is universal and available on the App Store for $4.99. You can also take a look at our original review from Christine Chan.
