Award winning cooking app iCookbook from Publications Internation to be one of the first new apps on the Windows 8 platform.

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) February 29, 2012 Publications International, Ltd. (PIL) is pleased to announce that the iCookbook™ application will be available for Windows 8 Consumer Preview via the Windows Store. iCookbook™ will be reconfigured to the Window 8 Metro style user interface and will include the extensive collection of recipes and cooking tools for the home chef that made it one of the hottest cross-platform apps of the past year.

iCookbook™ has impressed tech-savvy cooks across the world with its unique design. It’s built from the ground up to be an “in the kitchen” tool that cooks can use not just as a meal-planning aide, but throughout the entire meal preparation process. iCookbook™ comes pre-loaded with more than 2,000 recipes for every occasion that can be sorted by meal, ingredient, cuisine, and more.

Beyond iCookbook’s impressive collection of recipes, the app features:

  • A large-display “Prepare” feature for easy reading in the kitchen
  • “Stir” random recipe selection for those days when you just can’t decide or want to try something new
  • Guides for measurement conversions and ingredient substitutions

“We are excited that iCookbook™ will be available in the Windows Store,” said Jerry Croft, president of PIL’s Cooking and Digital Media divisions. “The Visual Studio tools have allowed us to re-imagine iCookbookTM with a fantastic new user interface that delivers a consistent experience across both tablets and personal computers.”
