What can you use the app for?

Yumm! brings together a huge selection of popular recipes available through many online resources. The application makes it easier for users to find new favorite recipes in one place. Users can see most popular and newest recipes or search by tag. Popular recipe tags include tasty favorites like pasta, chicken, dessert, cookie and soup as well as health dietary choices such as healthy, dietetic, weight watchers and vegetarian. A bookmarklet and search tool are also available for added convenience to Yumm! users. The bookmarklet lets users save recipes to Yumm! as they find them online. Users can add their own tags and a description or note to each newly added recipe. Each recipe is presented on the search results page with the name, a short description, number of saves, tags, the date it was first saved, where it came from and sharing buttons for Twitter and Facebook.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

The Yumm! website has a refreshingly tasty design that really complements the nature of the site. A brilliant lime green background works well with the watermelon red and green logo, which features a square stylized watermelon icon with a bite taken out of one corner. Each recipe includes a small image to further entice the user as well as a description and other vital information. The search bar is prominently displayed at the top of the page for quick access.

How does the registration process work?

A new user can create a Yumm! account by clicking the aqua blue “Create Your Account” link in the upper, right hand corner of the website. The registration form gives users three options. The first two can be accessed using blue buttons at the top of the form to sign in through Twitter or Facebook. The third option is to fill out the form just below the buttons. The form requires a username, email address and password.

What does it cost to use the application?

Yumm! offers a helpful service to users, but it is not one that would justify a subscription fee or other cost. Luckily the creators have kept Yumm! appealing and accessible with free access for all users. There are no subscription fees or other charges. The user only has to create their account to begin enjoying the benefits of Yumm!.
