VegWeb iPhone App! It's available now!

UPDATE: The app is now available for purchase: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/vegan-recipe-finder/id377593431?mt=8#! Thank you all for your hard work to help make it fabulous. If you were a tester, I'll be in contact soon with a free copy for you!

Do you have an iPhone and love VegWeb? Well... we need you!

We're testing out our new iPhone app (!!!) and want it to be perfect before it goes to the app store. That's where you come in! We need a select group of beta testers to let us know what rules, what drools, and any other brilliant advice that only a VegWebber can give.

If you want to be a part of history (I'm a bit dramatic), please email laura at vegweb dot com and let me know!

Best,
WML

p.s. I can't wait to unleash this into the world! It's looking so amazing already and it can only get better with your help!

How about if you have an iPod Touch? This is aaaaaawesome btw!!! ;)b

How about a blackberry app?  Accessing the site with mobile web takes away search ability and makes it difficult to find a recipe quickly.

Is a questionnaire of some sort going to be sent out after the week is up??  Or are we just sending in an email with feedback?  I've got notes!! ;)

Just filled out the questionnaire.
I hope the final version is MUCH faster than the beta.

I just filled it out too!  I didn't have a problem with the speed until it came time to add items to the shopping cart.

Okay. I'll bite. This is the 1st time replied to any forum or msg board. Long time lurker; first time poster. I'm a virgin, so go easy on me, okay?  I've I have an iPhone,  and here's what I have:

I only install "free" or up to $1.99. I'm cheap. I know that "Vegan with Vengeance" app is available for $9.99, but, like I stated, I'm cheap. And I can get the book free from the library. 

iVegetarian: kinda like a UrbanSpoon for the Vegetarian market.  It has the local (GPS) veggie restaurants/cafes/grocery, along with reviews and (sometimes) menus. Great for travel.

VeganSteven: does the same thing as above, but less informed and no flair. It is scheduled for the next "X'ing from my screens. Until I run out of room, I keep it just ensure that someone who happens upon my phone knows that I mean business! LOL. Actually, it's just there cuz it causes no harm and I don't need the screen space. Yet.

VeganXpress: MUST HAVE for any fast food/casual service diner. It gives you the lowdown on what is vegan for every chain! As a career restaurant manager, I don't like to dine in chains, but have worked for some. Some listed in this app, and I have to give them a "thumbs up" double time for getting it right.  I've double checked their intel, and it is ALL GOOD!

Whole Foods: Great recipe search, since they have the "on hand" feature where you can list your top 3 ingredients rotting in the fridge, plus you can run a "filter" for vegan only recipes.

VegRecipes: For Dine in or carry out. "Eating Out" takes you to the same places as iVegetrian, but "Eating In" takes you to choose a Flavor, be it Thai, Chinese, French, Mexican. ect....or you can choose between Breakfast, Brunch, Lunch, Dinner....Haven't really played around with this one much. I have Vegweb, afterall...

SupremeMasterTV 1.2: This was a freebee, and it seems to have a lot of videos on it. It also has more of an "international" flair. YouTube meets Veggie meets iPhone. Can't say that I've done much with it, but it's there! Just in case I need it.

Now, on to Wine/beer/spirits, which is kinda "my home": Barnivore beware!

Is Your Wine Vegan: Yeah, it's allright. It gives green/yellow/red light on purchases, but it's NO:

VeganIsEasy: All the above, PLUS! actual emails and directives from the companies and "verification" about whether or not the alcohol is "animal junk free". And, they have a much WIDER scope on the booze. It is the app that I use when purchasing.  The other will be wasted away when I cleanse my screen.

There was talk off another app; one that "scanned" processed food and reported whether they were vegan safe. I absolutely LOVE the face that Bac~Os are, btw. Suck it up, carnis! But, alas, that app is more for European/ Australian bar codes, not US. So, I wait. I wait and I stew in lentils and Bisquick. Sprinkled in Nootch.

How'd I do? Good report? I look forward to your critique and hope to serve better in the future.

Good report?!! Possibly the most comprehensive vegapp review yet envisioned by (wo)man! Where should the stipend check be sent?!  ;)b

PS: you need a blog! I'd, like, totally subscribe to the RSS feed. This app review, in combo w/ prior research about best veg blogs, clearly indicates that you need an outlet for your excellent research efforts & results -- it's for the greater good, so you practically *have* to do it...

Also: someone needs to buy me an iphone... repeatedly dropping my dumb-ass phone (in hopes of insurance defraying expense) isn't working. The damn thing still lights up... but tells me NOTHING about veg-friendly ingredients (grumble grumble grumble)...

PPS: AmyJill rocks! Thanks for the review (happy emoticons galore!)
