    I want to use my PB as a cookbook. Can anyone help me get this set up? Do I need to fingure type each one of recipies into an app? Any suggestions are very welcomed and appreciated!

    There are some outstanding recipe books on Kobo for less than $10.00, many even just $5.00.

    Do you have many recipes already on another computer. We had a few in word file and just transfered the file over. Also the convertible case works well as a stand.

    If you have already recipes in a document on your PC, you can drop those documents into dropbox and pick them up on your playbook (Bluebox).

    You can make very easily your own cookbook using an app called "Database Forms". Here you can create a recipe form and add your recipes. Trial version is available.

    I found this on Chrome a little while back. Its a pretty cool app used to use it with my Cr-48 but now i can just pull the website up on my Playbook and use it just as well.

    The website has tagging, the ability to make a shopping list and you can also export your recipies to a bunch of text files on your computer as a backup.

    i would take a look at it: onetsp.com

    Cheers,

    If you were in Canada, you would love the Recipe Box apps. It's about 100 mb and definately a quality apps by President Choice. There's also Cooklet app which is pretty good because you can post and share recipes.

    Cooklet is a great free app in App World. It allows you to bring in your own recipes & share with anyone if you like.

    I've been doing what others have suggested - just moved a word doc or pdf version to the playbook. Issue - screen goes blank so I try to remember to scroll occasionally.

    Mine's in an Otterbox but the screen can get a bit smeary!

    I subscribe to Taste of Home. Use the online recipe box, then pull it up in a browser window.

    Another vote for taste of home. I do exactly the same thing. Also will occasionally find other recipes online and use print to go to send a pdf to pb.
