We’ve heard loud and clear from our customers that purchasing SousChef through the Mac App Store is preferable to buying it from us. We like that, so starting Monday, March 5th, we’ll be selling SousChef exclusively through the Mac App Store.
No muss, no fuss. You can buy SousChef by searching on the App Store or by following this link.
Even if it’s not March 5th yet, you should still buy SousChef from the App Store. That’s our official recommendation.
I’m a little late on the uptake on this one, but many thanks to the SousChef customer who let us know about the review of SousChef in Mac|Life. Florence Ion calls SousChef “the ideal companion for novice cooks looking to get their bearings in the kitchen.”
Many thanks to Mac|Life for the four out of five squares. Not yet a SousChef customer? Go read the full review!
Today Acacia Tree is proud to announce our support for Apps for Water. All of our proceeds for today, December 20th, will go to charity: water, an organization devoted to bringing safe drinking water to people all over the world.
If you’d like to support this project, you can buy SousChef today — or buy any of the other apps on the Apps for Water website. But you can also give directly to charity: water. As their website says: “100% of public donations directly fund water projects.” That’s the most percent you can have.
If you already own SousChef, or if it’s no longer December 20th, you can give directly to charity: water. We think it’s a great organization, and independent charity ratings groups like them, too. CharityWatch considers charity: water one if its Top-Rated Charities, giving them a grade of A; Charity Navigator gives charity: water four stars. If you want to help people in the developing world, giving money to charity: water is a good investment.
Happy holidays from Acacia Tree Software. You can check out all the apps supporting this event at Apps for Water. You can find SousChef on the Mac App Store or the iTunes App Store.
To celebrate the time of year when families and friends get together and share delicious food, we’ve put out a special version of SousChef. We call it SousChef Noël. We took over fifty of our favorite recipes from the SousChef cloud and made them into a free version of SousChef for iPhones and iPads. You can find it on the App Store.
We’ve included traditional and newfangled recipes for cookies, desserts, main courses, and Christmas-morning breakfast. I’m looking forward to roasting my first goose this year. For sweets, the homemade candy canes and the peppermint almond bark look delicious.
We’ve also updated SousChef for iOS to version 2.1. The latest version adds grocery lists to iPad, includes native Twitter support for iOS 5, and has a bunch of little improvements and bug fixes. Just be careful while you’re carrying your iPad through the grocery store.
What’s up next? We’re working on an update to SousChef for Mac, and we hope to be able to share more about that soon.
Happy holidays from Acacia Tree!
We’re happy to announce that SousChef is now available on the Mac App Store! Even better: the price is just $19.99.
We’d like to say hello and welcome to our new Mac App Store customers. You’ve helped make SousChef a “New and Noteworthy” app — we’re currently #4 in the top paid Lifestyle apps!
As for customers who purchased SousChef through our website: don’t worry, you won’t miss out on any updates, and you don’t have to re-purchase SousChef. For future customers, however, we think buying SousChef through the Mac App Store will make it easier for you to keep track of the apps you own and keep those apps up to date.
We’re going to keep cooking up delicious features for you to try, and refining SousChef to make it the best recipe manager in the galaxy.
Friends, Chefs, and SousChefs,
We’re extending the sale on the iOS version of SousChef until November 1st. Until then, you can cook from your iPad or iPhone for just five American dollars.
Why are we extending the sale? Because we are afraid of ghosts.
So get SousChef while it’s hot, and cook up some spooky Halloween treats.
We’re happy to announce two new versions of SousChef, hot off the griddle — one for Mac, and one for your iOS devices.
SousChef for iOS is now a universal app, available now for iPhones, iPads, and iPod Touches. To celebrate the new release, we’re putting SousChef for iOS on sale for $4.99 for a limited time only.
The new update to SousChef for Mac goes well with the iOS version — you can now share your recipes with your iOS devices using Dropbox. Just turn on Sharing in Preferences. And if you’re headed to the grocery store, you can send your grocery list to your iPhone or iPod Touch.
We’re really happy with the new versions of SousChef. Try them out and let us know how they help you cook!
Recently we released SousChef for iPad 1.1. It supports printing in iOS 4.2, multitasking with iOS 4 and has numerous small improvements and bug fixes. You can get it here.
The update also adds syncing architecture that will be enabled with a future update of the Mac version.
A new addition to SousChef for iPad that will be rolled out to our Mac version soon is the generation of recipe shortlinks. These little URL’s are perfect for Tweeting, Blogs, Posting to Facebook and just sharing recipes in general. Each link points to a static recipe page which is accessible to anyone once you give them the URL. Of course, recipes that have been opt-ed out of the cloud are not available in this manner. These pages are hosted by us and are free for anyone to use. To access these links in the iPad app, just tap the gear icon on a recipe, tap share and then tap the way you’d like to share the link. Enjoy!
Here are a few examples:
Acacia Tree Software is proud to announce the release of our a brand new version of SousChef for iPad!
It allows iPad users to search the 160,000+ recipes in SousChef’s online recipe cloud, and then cook using the iPad instead of a recipe book in the kitchen.
We’ll be posting a quick overview of the process of writing this app along with some bits and pieces that we created to make it happen along the way in the near future. IPhone users don’t worry we’re still working on the iPhone version as well!
