There are apps for saving all kinds of data and I am sure there is one out there for the Ipad. I would just suggest that you get one of those cases that keeps the Ipad dry as the kitchen environment is not a safe one for any Tablet.

2x for an iPad. I bought a used one a few years back and it still performs well. I bought a flip cover for it that when folded allows the pad to stand. I believe it has 16 gig memory so there really is no problem with storing recipes. I bet you could come up with a mounting bracket to have it at eye level on a cabinet door. Good luck and Bon appetite!

Rather than typing them all, you can use a scanner app, such as CamScanner or GoogleScan, to scan the recipes into a tablet or other device, to a flash drive or to the cloud. I prefer the flash drive. I'm doing this with family heirloom items such as my grandmother's handwritten recipe book.

Or just take a photo of it. I find that I use my camera for taking photos of stuff to remember/ stuff I can't read more than anything else.


Like the back of my router, print had to be put on by pixies. I take a photo and zoom it to human size print. Same if I am at a restaurant and can't read menu, take photo.

Or if going to Lowes or HD, take photo of what I need, because I will forget half of it when I get there.
