Yet another update, but it’s a good one! As of today, the current release of Prep & Pantry for Android officially supports the Gennymotion desktop emulator! I was able to fix a bug that was causing it to hang on start-up. The how-to in the knowledgebase details the installation. This might also fix the problem with P&P running on Bluestacks, could someone this confirm for me?
Android allows running downloaded apps on an emulator, Apple doesn't. Inventory changes made on Prep & Pantry for iPhone show up just fine on the Android version and vise versa.
@Angela - It does keep it interesting. TideSDK/TideKit. I started down the path but they've gone dark.
@Lynne & Jeri
It will! Just like the iOS and Android versions, the desktop version will keep in sync with all of your other devices.
@Leonie I would say that this would be a great application of Prep & Pantry's tagging feature. Set the item location as "Freezer" then set a tag for the sub-location e.g. "bag one" or "freezer bag one".
You will be able to see the entire freezer contents through the Location list view and you can view the individual bag through the Tag list view.
If you are using iOS another approach would be to use iGroups. Have the sub-location be the iGroup. This is not what I intended iGroups to be used for but there is no reason you cannot.
For those using Android, iGroups are on the way.
@Bob Thank you for the suggestions. Could you give me an example or two of what you had in mind for custom fields? I am assuming you would want it to be something beyond a notes field.
For reports, have you checked out the reports currently available under Prep & Pantry Settings tab> Reports?
The ability to update/edit the Store and Price is coming soon. For iOS this will be version 3.5 which is currently awaiting review at Apple. Shortly thereafter I will get an update out for Android.
@Anonymous With the expiration date you can set the date to be whatever you want. Myself, I approach it as an "Inspect by" date. When the date comes up I take the original expiration date, storage conditions, etc, under consideration and with push the exp date out or consume the item. An item that spent the summer in the GHB in the truck should be rotated out sooner than the item in the climate controlled pantry.
@KaznTas You can see a larger image of an item by selecting an item from one of you list views then tap on the item image. A 50% larger image is shown.
I will look into further increasing the image size in a future release. Too large of an item image can slow down the list views quite a bit and can really eat up your device's available storage.
What is the recipe app that you are using? I will look at it and see what the options are.
