Cool idea. One suggestion is to use this link to the Android Market. That way people can install it directly from the web-based Market.

Thanks jessssse! I updated the links.

This seems very similar to The Flavor Bible. Any insight as to where the book's author (presumably not your role as programmer) came up with his/her reference data?

OK I gotta say the interface is dry. And needs some padding. The + and - signs aren't all that easy to click on. If I add one ingredient too many how do I remove without starting over?

The plus sign adds it to the list of what I have - but the minus removes it from my list and it remembers not to load it again?

There's no explanation once you are in the app itself - I had to go back to the write up in the app store (iPhone) and the site to get more information.

Sorry but regardless of the statistics and the gathering of information the experience is very disappointing.

Pretty neat, although it would be more interesting (at least for me) if there are pictures! Heh.

The ingredient formatting (ALL CAPS > bold > normal > italics) is a bit confusing for me. Maybe there's a better way of presenting this? Like group the ingredients by hierarchy, then label them with "best with these", then "better", then "good" or something like that.

I was also reminded of The Flavor Thesaurus.
