Fromage

Steve Welch
Need a cheese app for your iPhone or iPad? Fromage provides a convenient pocket resource of fantastic cheeses made throughout the world for your culinary exploration. The cheese library contains well beyond 1,200 world cheeses thanks to suggestions from our established base of Fromage users worldwide.

Each cheese entry features artistically presented cheese photos, historically narrated flavor descriptions, and suggested best choices for complementary wines. You can add your own favorite cheeses to the standard library and attach personal notes about any of the cheeses.

Fromage uses iCloud to synchronize your cheese entries and notes between all of your Apple devices.

If you’re a classically trained chef, professional party planner, cheese buyer, or just plain cheese lover, grab Fromage, your favorite wine, and experience the wonderful and historic flavors of cheese.
_________________________________

Fromage comes with the ability to create personal cheese notes, rate cheeses from 1 to 5 stars (included an “Avoid” rating), add cheeses to your favorite lists (Try, Buy, or Favorites categories), record tasting impressions with up to 70 tasting keywords, and search the cheese library.

You can also enter your own cheeses (including photos captured from your device camera) and list those cheeses automatically in the “My Additions” category. There is also a “Share” feature so cheese information can be sent (via e-mail) to friends or to the developer for inclusion in future versions of Fromage.

What's new in version 10.2.1
Minor bug fix. Otherwise for v10.2 - New cheeses were added with particular focus on cheeses from the Savoie France region. Improvements were made with the search function to consider the region, texture and milk-type information. A feature was added to move to the next or previous cheese within the list of cheeses while displaying a single cheese. A bug that prevented timely iCloud syncing of notes or cheeses and syncing between devices was fixed.
