The app sorts saved recipes automatically into different meal categories, for ease of finding later; includes space for tips from other users; and allows you to mark successfully executed recipes for later. On initial setup, users can only choose between vegetarian or non-vegetarian, so from there, you would have to start parsing out any other dietary restrictions by searching and favouriting recipes. Makes meal planning easy for picky eaters, and gives you the option to add all or some of the ingredients in the recipes to your Walmart app cart.
