With the holiday season just around the corner, which Android cooking apps are the best for your battery life?
Out with the Halloween decorations, in with the Christmas décor; it’s November. Time to hang up the gym pass until January because it’s holiday season; and that means three things: food, food, and more food. Get ready for the pouring-in of relatives, in-laws, and the occasional football game. With Thanksgiving and Christmas quickly approaching, it’s time to refresh your memory on great recipes to please your guests; whether you’re making a quick dinner for the family, or wanting to impress at the neighbor’s holiday party.
A steady set of recipe apps have made life a lot easier. No need to buy expensive recipe books just to flip through the pages once and set it in your cupboard. The abundance of free recipe apps provide constantly updated content, vivid photos, and real-time feedback from amateur chefs like yourself. However, with all of these high-quality photos and social features, cooking apps can eat (pun intended) into your Android device’s battery.
Here’s 6 recipe cooking apps for Android that can help you find the perfect recipe, while also saving battery for you to do everything else; perhaps even taking Instagram photos of your edible masterpieces. If you want to see which of your apps use the most of your device’s time (foreground or background), data, memory, battery and more, you can download the FREE M2AppMonitor app on Google Play to regain control of your Android device.
