Paprika for iPad, Windows and Mac – Easy to catalog recipes, shopping list and now a big discount

Since we’re in the full swing of the holiday season, it’s appropriate to bring up another stellar iOS app that has both Windows and Mac equivalents. Paprika is a recipe box app that I bought a few years ago. In fact, I think I picked up a copy within a day or two of it’s initial release. For some strange reason, recipe apps were all but nonexistent for the iPad, which just struck me as odd since the iPad is a perfect cooking companion.

Paprika stepped in with the ability to create a recipe database. It was basically just a shell to give you a place to store ingredients and instructions. On the surface it seemed far to simple, but in reality it was incredibly flexible and powerful.

We now jump ahead a couple of years and not only has the app grown more powerful, there are now versions that run on most platforms. And like Notebooks, Paprika looks and runs the same across different platforms so you don’t have to deal with oddities just because you switched to a different device.

The big features of Paprika are the fact that you can import recipes from multiple sources, you can copy recipes directly from websites wherein Paprika will understand the different sections and set up the recipe correctly, you can set up recipes on your desktop machine and sync them to your device (and vice versa) and you can set up shopping lists using both ingredients needed for the recipes you have planned using the meal planner as well as adding your own items that have nothing to do with cooking such as shampoo. This means you can now put together a shopping list on any computer or device and then have that list with you when you’re actually in the store. I’ve had a couple of different shopping list apps (Shopper being one of the best) and following a list saves a whole lot of time and money at the store.

You could also have someone fill out a shopping list for you on their copy of Paprika and send it over to you so there is no guesswork about which items you need to pick up.

Anyway, I’ve had Paprika by my side for a few years now and like I said, there is now a Windows and Mac version. Better still, all versions are on sale. There is a 50% discount across the board. The iPad app is only $2.99 while the desktop versions are a mere $9.99 each. Further, the desktop versions allow you to install on 3 separate machines which is a great deal. Ironically, I paid $9.99 when Paprika first came out for the iPad.

Paprika is the type of app you can use on a regular basis. You can now plan out meals and put together shopping lists with ease. It works great with the iPad Mini which is what I take to the store with me. Even if you only do a little bit of cooking, Paprika is an app I highly recommend you have by your side.

Save 60% on everything during the O&O Cyber Monday Week

So there are plenty of Defrag and Internet cache cleaning tools out there, but if you don’t already have something in your toolbox, then O&O is offering a sweet deal. You can pick up their highly usable Defrag tool or go All-In and grab a PowerPack which features Defrag, SafeErase, DiskImage and AutoBackup.

Since I already have CCleaner Professional Plus, I’m covered on most fronts, however, the PowerPack is still a great bundle since you get O&O DiskImage which I use to make an image of my C:\ drive on a weekly basis and AutoBackup which I use to sync external hard drives. The PowerPack is a 3 computer license so that’s nice.

If you want to just grab an individual product, you still get 60% off. If you don’t have it, I would say invest in O&O DiskImage. It works extremely well, and I’ve used it to restore a failed drive and was back up and running pretty quickly. The copy process took a long time since I was using 3TB drives, but that’s just the amount of data to copy and has nothing to do with the software.

Pretty good deal and last through the end of the month. Use coupon CYBERWEEK15 at

Games to get in the Steam Summer Sale

The Steam Summer Sale is in full swing and there are hundreds of games on sale. I’ve already bought several new collections of games that I’m looking forward to checking out, but there are some games I’ve already been playing that I think you should get while they’re discounted. These are all under $10 while some are under $5.

Banished – A great game of city building, but it’s so much harder and more complex than it looks.

Betrayer – A creepy and mysterious first-person shooter with lots of puzzle solving elements.

Besiege – Build a machine of mass destruction and turn it loose on the sheep!

TinyKeep – I’m not sure why I’m in prison, I’m sure it’s an honest mistake, but I’m bustin out of this joint!

Age of Empires II – One of the greatest city builder/RTS games ever made.

Rise of Nations – Another stunning RTS that goes from bows and arrows to nuclear warheads.

Baldur’s Gate – Deep story and the classic dungeon crawler

Baldur’s Gate II – Enhanced and updated!

Dungeon Siege Collection – All 3 games from the Dungeon Siege series which was a pretty decent adventure game in it’s own right.

Bioshock Triple Pack – All 3 creepy games from the Bioshock series.

Icewind Dale – It’s all about fighting monster and searching for loot!

Spiderweb Software Complete Pack – 13 dungeon crawling games for $13. Come on now, that’s one hell of a deal!

Even though this list is small, it should provide hours and hours of entertainment. Considering a movie costs $11 and will be over and done within 2 hours, spending $10 on a game that will last you several days or even a few weeks is a pretty good investment.

New version of CCleaner and Recuva, plus discount

I’m still a bit fan of Piriform CCleaner and feel the retail version is well worth the cost. I load more junk on my machine faster than CCleaner can get rid of it, but it tries to keep me out of trouble. Between it and SuperAntiSpyware, cookies and all manner of web junk are constantly getting swept away. Certainly worth the time and effort.

And now you can get the complete bundle at a discount. You get CCleaner, Defraggler, Recuva and Speccy for a bundle price and if you use the coupon code APRIL15, you get another 20% off. You basically get each program for $10 which in my opinion is a really good deal.

So first, jump over to the site to buy the bundle.

Next, enter the coupon code APRIL15 and get another 15% off. This will drop the price to $31.96
