iPod App Review: Food Network Nighttime

This app puts The Food Network at your fingertips! Now, night time shows like ‘Throwdown with Bobby Flay’ recipes and clips are compiled for your viewing and cooking needs.  The app has a recipe function which is set up like the website, including suggested links for seasonal foods and searching by show host.


  • Includes variety of recipes from a variety of chefs. You’ll rarely see the same thing twice!
  • Has a favorites function to avoid a mass search through thousands of recipes
  • Includes video clips of your favorite Food Network shows


  • Doesn’t focus on nutritional content.  If you are interested in lower calorie or specific diets you must dig a little deeper into each recipe to make suggest changes, or search through Ellie Krieger.
  • Although it has access to recipes, this app focuses more on the television aspect.  Filled with video clips from shows, it could be more for someone that enjoys television, rather than eating healthy
