First-of-Its-Kind Glassware for Helping in the Kitchen with Recipes and Meal Preparation
Mountain View, Calif. – June 27, 2013 – Coupons.com Incorporated today announced the availability of KitchMe for Glass, a first-of-its-kind recipe and meal preparation app for Google Glass™. The free app is immediately available at www.kitchme.com/googleglass.
“KitchMe for Glass brings Glassware to the kitchen in a unique app that helps people do something the majority of families do several times a week, cook,” said Steven Boal, CEO of Coupons.com Incorporated. “KitchMe for Glass is the most recent example of our long-standing innovation in web and mobile applications that help consumers do everyday things—like cook and shop. Wearable technology is a huge opportunity and where better to focus than in the kitchen where so much of what we do today can be augmented by technology.”
KitchMe for Glass leverages the recipe and meal-prep features from the recently released KitchMe.com web application. Key capabilities of the KitchMe for Glass app include:
• Recipe Search. Find recipes by keyword voice recognition, then swipe to browse search results. Search for recipes based on what’s already on hand in the kitchen or by what’s on sale in the grocery store. KitchMe offers thousands of hand-curated recipes that have at least 4 out of 5 stars and can be prepared in less than 45 minutes.
• Ingredient List. Select a recipe, then swipe to view the ingredients, whether you’re cooking in the kitchen or shopping in the supermarket.
• Cooking Directions. View step-by-step recipe directions or ask KitchMe for Glass to read them out loud.
• KitchMe.com Integration. KitchMe.com users, connected to the KitchMe for Glass app, can send their favorite recipes to their Glass timeline.
Additional features, such as the ability to snap photos of cooked meals and share them with friends, are already in development for the next version of KitchMe for Glass. Future development could also include the ability to use voice recognition to fully navigate the app so that getting cooking information hands-free could become a reality.
The KitchMe web app (www.kitchme.com) was announced in March 2013. A next-generation meal planning and savings web application, KitchMe.com uniquely combines recipes, meal planning, savings and shopping-list capabilities in an easy-to-use, visually compelling application. Free to use, KitchMe.com can be used with desktop and mobile browsers.
