food apps----any to recommend?

I have joined the 21st centrury. . . .well sort of, as I now own an Itouch. It does not have permanent wireless connection--I must be connected through whatever Wifi. This is NOT a non-sequiter as my question relates to food related apps.

I purchased the BBC's Good Food Festive food app and love it. Tons of yummy british holiday food recipes. Plus the whole thing is downloaded so I can ride home on the bus persuing recipes and deciding what to make for dinner while walking through the market.

I downloaded the Jamie Olivier tester pack. Not bad but only 10 recipes. BBC's good food was $3 or $4 dollars on Itunes for nearly 200 recipes so I'm not inclined to buy Jamie's app.

I downloaded the free Epicurious and find its not bad as long as I'm looking at stuff I've looked at before as it requires an internet connection.

I downloaded the Food Network Canada's app and like it but like Epicurious, it doesn't really work if I'm not connected to the internet.

Finally in the course of researching an upcoming trip to Paris, I found a free app that lists hundreds of cheeses available in France and even has pictures. Alas, it is all in French and requires WiFi to work properly but still, the photos are some nice food porn if you like cheese.

does anyone have any really good free food apps to recommend? Or any that you have bought that you feel are worth every penny?
