This app offers recipe suggestions based on information like the time of day, day of the week, ingredient preferences, weather, location and patterns. Yummly lets you search for recipes and receive recommendations. The personalized results are possible following a recent upgrade to the app that helps people find meals more catered to their interests.
A bit like Songza's concierge, if you were to open the Yummly app at 5pm in winter, you might see recipe suggestions for soup and warm appetizers. The data-driven feature shows you smart shopping lists too.
The contextual piece is particularly helpful for those with dietary restrictions who are looking for allergy-free meals. They can do this through Yummly and its algorithm-based recommendations.
