Every day, we focus our energies on making BigOven even better for you. We’ve been releasing lots of site and app improvements throughout 2011, and we’ve got further improvements on deck for 2012 and beyond.
But every now and then we pop up and take a look at what people are writing about the platform.
This summer, I was pleased to see some recent writeups on BigOven:
- Mobile Test Kitchen, August 28 2011: “App Review: BigOven”
- PC World, September 8 2011: “Hungry? Fire up BigOven Software”
- Wired Magazine, June 11 2011: “BigOven vs. Evernote: Fight!”
- Time Magazine, August 2011: “Best Apps for Foodies”
- Geekwire, June 8 2011: “Want your mom’s chili recipe? Snap a photo and BigOven’s RecipeScan does the work”
Even more important to us is the direct feedback we get from you, the users of BigOven.
A quick check of iTunes, Android and the Windows Marketplace suggests we’ve got more work to do, but that we’re on the right track. We really appreciate you taking the time to give us feedback! When you let us know what works as well as what needs to be improved, it helps us deliver the best possible solution for you.
