Announcing: Shop’NCook online service

by Mathilde on December 16, 2014

Thank you to all who took the survey on Shop’NCook new online service.

I have been hard at work during the last few months and have finally published the first beta version of Shop’NCook online.

You can watch the video below to get a glimpse of the new service – or you can go ahead without waiting and click on the big button below the video to get started!

Read also below for more information on security, existing features, future plans, and more.

Go to Shop’NCook Online

You can access Shop’NCook online from any browser and use it from anywhere – from any smart phone, tablet or computer. No installation is necessary.

What it does
Shop’NCook online allows you to:

- organize your recipes,
- add recipes from text,
- add a recipe from a picture of its text (OCR function),
- make a shopping list from your recipes,
- cost a recipe,
- compute its nutritional content,
- make a nutrition facts label.

Your data is private and protected with a password. To make sure it is also safe, all transmissions are done on a secure channel.

How to create an account
If you have been using any of Shop’NCook mobile apps or if you have synchronized with Shop’NCook Pro or Menu software, you have already an account and you can login at once. If necessary, you can retrieve your login information by clicking on the + button of the toolbar.

Otherwise, you can easily create a new account by clicking on the + button of the toolbar.

Adding cookbooks
You can access your cookbooks from Shop’NCook Pro and Menu software by synchronizing them.

You can also add cookbooks from Shop’NCook Home software, Shop’NCook Reader software or iShopNCook app by exporting them to XML and uploading them to the service on the main cookbook screen.

During the launch period, free Pro access is given to everybody, at least until January. After the launch, a free access level will be maintained. Access to Pro functions will require a subscription.

Future plans
An online service makes it very easy to deploy new functionalities. I plan to continue working full time on it in the coming months and keep making it better. Let me know what are your wishes by leaving a comment below. I am looking forward to get your feedback.

If you still have questions that were not answered above, let me know in the comments below.
