    Can you please make these apps for Android?

    Just downloaded. I feel like I’m going to get hosed again – you ended up giving away free copies after I downloaded the HTCE app. But it’s worth it – I own the paper version of this one and use it all the time. I used to without fail turn to Joy whenever I had sort of a basic cooking question. But since I married a Vegetarian I’d say How to Cook Everything Vegetarian gets about half my attention. Anyway, thanks for the cookbook and the app, Mark. Keep it up!

    Can’t decide whether to get this, or not. I already have the book and the regular HTCE app, is it worth it for me?

    This looks great. I second the call for an Android version, though. Would love to have this on my Droid, as I often find myself planning dinner on the commute home, and HTCE Veg is my first stop when looking for new recipes.

    Another request for an Android version. I love my paper version of HTCEV and would like to have it on my phone/tablet too!

    Yeah, an Android version would be great! The features look good too – not just a handheld version of the book.

    Am I missing something? Dairy items don’t appear on the shopping list. Kinda kills the utility of the shopping list function. This is the first time I’ve tried to use the app and was loving it until I discovered this bug. Help offered no solution. Not a settings problem, either. What could be the problem?
