Now a universal app for both the iPhone and iPad… and it supports the French, Spanish, and German languages !!
With over 750 cheeses, this is clearly the best pocket guide to cheeses made throughout the world. A “must have” for all connoisseurs of fine foods.
Each cheese entry features artistically presented cheese photos, historically narrated flavor descriptions, and suggested best choices for complementary wines. You can add your own cheeses to the standard library and attach personal notes about any of the cheeses.
If you’re a classically trained chef, professional party planner, cheese buyer, or just plain cheese lover, grab Fromage, your favorite wine, and experience the wonderful and historic flavors of cheese.
In the initial release of Fromage, we brought to your iPhone a select library of over 225 French cheeses produced in 19 regions. We promptly added 155 cheeses from 18 various countries throughout the world.
Next, we listened to your reviews and focused on adding great cheeses from Spain (90 in total), from Italy (95 in total), and from the United States (85 in total) for a total of 270 new cheese entries.
Then, we added the ability to create personal cheese notes, rate cheeses from 1 to 5 stars, add cheeses to your favorite lists (Try, Buy, or Favorites categories), record tasting impressions with up to 70 tasting keywords, and search the cheese library.
Then, we added the ability to enter your own cheeses (including photos) and list those cheeses automatically in the new “My Additions” category. We also added a new “Share” feature so cheeses can be sent (via e-mail) to friends or to the developer for inclusion in future versions of Fromage. Lastly, we added another 100 cheeses from various European countries and Canada.
And, now for the iPad… this release brings the complete Fromage library and features to the iPad big screen. It supports the iPad’s ability to multi-task, and allows you to use the iTunes file sharing feature for backup and syncing your personal cheese information (for devices with iOS 3.2 and above).
Internet or Wi-Fi connection is not required for program use (great for remote locations or when no data plan is in use). However, Translation of cheese descriptions do require an internet connection.
