Simply click the menu button in the top-right corner.

Your friend will be able to see your private recipe through a specially-encoded URL, while still keeping your recipe private.

New Pro feature: print recipes from iPhone/iPad   

This often-requested feature is now available. Simply click the menu button in the top-right corner and select “Print Recipe” at the bottom of the menu.

While we here at BigOven prefer using our tablets or smartphones in the kitchen, we’re responding to users who have requested the ability to print from within the app.  The technology used for printing in iOS is Apple’s AirPrint, and BigOven now supports AirPrint-compatible printers.

Requirement:  You must have an AirPrint-compatible printer or network configuration. Setup is smooth on a Mac OS network, but we have to admit that getting a Windows Network to successfully AirPrint can be difficult.  Learn how to set up AirPrint printers on a Mac network and on a Windows network.

For Windows users in particular, we recommend an off-the-shelf application such as FingerPrint because configuration can be tricky. This makes network configuration easier.
