Plus:
- Well designed
- Easy to use
- Very comprehensive
- Absolutely free

Minus:
-Does not work offline, but, hey, what do you want for nothing?

I'm relatively new to Android and have just moved from a budget tablet to an S3 phone. Even on relatively sluggish tablet, this attractive app is reasonable nimble on its feet and a breeze to use.

I've also 'purchased' (free app of the day) Jamie's 20 Minute Meals and although his app is very slick and includes some professionally produced videos as well as some excellent recipes, I find BigOven more comprehensive and therefore useful if I'm looking for some fresh ideas in the kitchen.

If you love cooking, or if you just love eating, stop reading this drivel immediately and start using this absolute gem of an app!

It's so much easier to get ideas and find recipes with this app. I think of something during the week and put it in my shopping list with everything I need for it a when I'm ready to cook or bake or even experiment I can write down my recipes thoughts and so much more. This is a great app if like me you struggle with ideas for meals and are not good at cooking.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun!! 22 April 2013

Although there are a few recipes in this app...divided into sections like Breakfast Main Meals etc, it is also a way of building your own databases of recipes with My Kitchen and to do lists and ingredients. It does rely on you registering with the web page and using that online to access ALL of the recipes. Some banner ads but nothing more than usual for a free app.
