The how to cook everything vegetarian app seems great! I am always on the look out for vegetarian recipes that are different. I feel like us vegetarians are always forced to eat the same types of foods. Thanks for this article!

These are great apps for anybody who is, or is considering becoming, a vegetarian or vegan! I became a vegetarian for two years over a decade ago before the iPhone was invented. Back then it required gathering a lot of different cookbooks and article clippings together from different sources which was a lot of work. It’s wonderful that these apps do all the work for your and provide the information you need right in one convenient place. Just more proof that there’s an app for everything!

I've been a vegetarian for six years now. The Veg out app seems like something I would really like. I'm constantly googling vegetarian restaurants, but an app would be nice as it's normally more up to date. Thanks!
