We’ve been waiting for months for this moment to arrive_ the weelicious app is finally here!

I love apps, but it bugs me when I get one that doesn’t do much for me. We’ve spent quite a bit of time trying to load this one up with a ton of great features, so it really makes your life easier. Standing in the grocery with no idea what to make for dinner? Simply type an ingredient into the search box and you will be greeted with tons of ideas from the weelicious archives. Not sure how to make a specific recipe? Choose from over one hundred weelicious cooking videos that will show you exactly what to do. Want to see what was in Kenya’s school lunch today or just need a question answered fast? Go right to the weelicious Facebook or Twitter pages where the school lunch of the day is always waiting or touch base with other moms in your shoes.


But I think that hands down, the coolest feature on our new app is the Shopping List. This function creates your entire shopping list and tallies up the measurements so you always know exactly how much of each ingredient to buy. I’ve seen shopping lists on other recipe apps, but never one like this before_ once you have found the recipe you want to make, just click ADD TO SHOPPING LIST and all of that recipe’s ingredients with their corresponding amounts are instantly recorded to an easy to navigate shopping list. Even better, if you plan on cooking several weelicious recipes, the weelicious app automatically creates one master list so you don’t get stuck at the market searching by recipe.

I’ve got more requests for this app than I can remember and many of you said it would be worth it even if you had to pay for it. The most important thing to me when we set out to build the app was making sure it was FREE. And it is!


It’s like having the whole website, and more, with you at all times. This is still a new experience for me, so help us make the app better by giving us any and all feedback on what you like, what you think we could make better and what would improve your experience. We’d really appreciate it. In the meantime, enjoy!

  1. I just wanted to say thank you for so many wonderful recipes! I’ve lost 60 pounds and I didn’t know what I should eat. Your recipes are a big help! Thank you so much! 🙂

  2. […] For more information about the app, please check out the announcement post on the Weelicious blog. […]

  3. i’m feeling really inspired reading your recipes! too bad the app is not available for android!

  4. I love your site! Thanks for all you do. Is there a plan to bring your app to the Android platform? Thanks so much!

  5. I had no idea there was an app! I’m downloading, even though it appears it’s not working, so that I’ll get the update notification as soon as it becomes available. Found the site looking for healthy lunchbox ideas and love it, wow!

  6. As of today, recipes still aren’t loading on the app! When can we expect a fix? My toddler demands new meals! 😉

  7. I love the new website!! however, I am not a big fan of the app : ( it always seems to crash and doesn’t load the recipes. I cant wait for the new app… its coming soon right? (hint hint). Thank you so much for all the hard work and dedication that you have for this website and cooking. Looking forward to opening up my brand new cook book in september : )

  8. Love the idea of the app, but since I can’t get any recipes to search or load, I’ve deleted it. Sorry!

  9. I was so excited to hear there is an app and then saddened to find it is not available for Android phone/tablets. Do you plan to make an app for this market as well? We would REALLY love and appreciate it… You are a blessing. Thanks for all you do. Sincerely, Angela Garrison

  10. Just making sure you get another request for the Android app! So excited about the app and hoping the Android version is on the way… please?

  11. What kind of app is this if it doesn’t work on an android or blackberry? Does it work on the Ipod Touch? I’m not familiar with apps but I do have a blackberry phone and an Ipod Touch would love the app.

  12. please, please make the app for Android! I’m a new mom of my second baby and need to make my shopping easier with two kids now!!

  13. an app for blackberry too please!!!!!

    I LOVE your site and will be on maternity leave for a while and this would come in handy!

  14. Thank you! It’s great. If you are going to update, can I request being able to edit the shopping list to remove items you already have in the pantry? Sooo excited about this App!!

  15. Thank you for making an app! I love your site and access recipes on my phone web browser all the time. So happy to have an app now!

  16. I 2nd Haley…please make an app for the andriod phones!! I got so excited that there is an app, but can’t use it with my phone.

  17. So disappointed that the app isn’t in the android marketplace. Please please can the adroid users have an app too!!!

  18. Wow! Very cool! Thank you!

    Makes me wonder – how does a person go about developing an app anyways?

  19. First of all, thanks for the app!! I use my itouch often in the kitchen to pull up your recipes on your site already. We are a very weelicious-friendly household and are constantly trying your new recipes!

    One thing I’d like to see is a more accessible Search button (maybe instead of the Twitter button – but I don’t tweet, so what do I know?!) Also, it would be nice for the search to generate a list of all the recipes that come up, similar to how your website’s search function runs, instead of sifting through them one at a time. I noticed this when I searched ‘black beans’.

    Just my 2 cents 😉

  20. oh please oh please release a blackberry version! I don’t want to have to go get an iphone just for this!! 😉

  21. Catherine,

    Congratulations! My daughter and I love the app! Thank you for this wonderful app. WE adore the website, and my kids will try so many more foods because of your website. My daughter wanted to leave a comment as well.

    Hi,my name is Eugenia. I am 8 years old . I love your website!

  22. Seems like it is having trouble loading. It says please standby loading when I open the app and has been that way for about 40 minutes.

  23. Just adding my voice to the many you’ve heard from already asking for this App on the Andriod platform. Thank you!

  24. Android please! It seems as if making it available on Android first would’ve been more beneficial. Seems like there are more Droid users than Iphone? Hope to see it soon!

  25. Just logged on to my app store and downloaded onto my iPhone super easy, thanks!! Excited to use this!

  26. do you know how long I have been looking for a resource for converting recipe’s to shopping lists? WOW! I can’t wait for it to come for android! PLEASE??

  27. Loving the app. I used to put my laptop in the kitchen while cooking but last weekend was great with me and my iphone only in the kitchen 🙂

  28. Another request for it to be available for the Android please 🙂 I figure if you hear from enough of us maybe it will happen…

  29. Downloaded with no trouble and I’m off to the store! Hooray!! Easily found by searching “weelicious” in the App Store!

  30. […] goodness the Weelicious app finally launched for the iPhone. I have a feeling that will become my most coveted resource for […]

  31. Boo! No Android. I couldn’t get it on my phone, but then ran to my Ipod Touch and downloaded it. It’s an awesome App. Ladies, for those of you who have Ipods, download it. But, the only problem is that now I have to remember to carry my Ipod with me when I go shopping! Love the grocerylist option!!!

  32. Yay!! this is a great idea and so well thought out! Thanks! I love your site and just downloaded the app!

  34. I am so incredibly excited for this! Thank you for all your creative recipes and for helping to teach me how to cook. 🙂

  47. Picture-Alert no longer suopprts monitoring web browsing. The main focus of the app is that it captures images which are taken from the camera or images that are stored within the photos app on the device which may come from email attachments, text message images/videos, internet, and when the device is connects via USB to a computer.Any other questions please feel free to email our customer support.
