The Oh She Glows Recipe App is here!!

Today is a big day! After years of dreaming, planning, and hard work, we’ve officially launched the Oh She Glows – Healthy Plant-Based Recipes app for iPhone and iPad devices! You guys have been asking for an OSG app for years, and I’m so excited the day is finally here. Many of you will now be able to cook from your phone or tablet with ease, or meal plan while commuting to and from school or work with convenient offline access. Think of this app as your personal OSG on the Glow!

Our app features the most popular Oh She Glows recipes from the past 8 years (oh boy, did I rediscover some gems), and includes brand-new photography, with a cohesive, sleek new look. All of the recipes have been edited and streamlined, and many have been improved as I cooked my way through Oh She Glows’ archives. You can be confident that the recipes in our app are delicious, super reliable, and will wow your family and friends! Check out our short video below for a sneak peek:

This project has been a huge labour of love involving myself, Eric, our app team, and also hundreds of you—our awesome beta testers who applied via our newsletter. Thanks to those of you who tested our app during the development phase, we were able to improve it in many ways, and add all kinds of useful features based on your feedback.

For example, we created a killer search function that sorts recipes by keywords, dietary info, dish types, and seasons, as well as handy filters like freezer-friendly, kid-friendly, quick and easy, budget-friendly, and more.

Features we’re excited about:

– Enjoy more than 60 Oh She Glows recipes (and growing!), including 50 fan-favourites plus 11 new recipes exclusive to the app (see the bottom of this post)
– Browse through beautiful full-screen, high-resolution food photography
– Strike out ingredients and directions as you cook so you don’t lose your place
– Customize your own favourites list with your most-loved recipes
– Easily view cook time, prep time, serving size, headnotes/tips, and allergy info for each recipe
– Add your own notes to the recipes to save/record your own recipe modifications
– Take recipes with you on the go with convenient offline access
– Search for recipes with ease using ingredient keywords or by recipe title
– Filter your recipes based on dietary/allergy info, season, dish type, and more
– Cook without worry that your device will go to sleep with our anti-lock feature
– Enjoy split view on your iOS 9 iPad Air 2, iPad Mini 4, and iPad Pro

Best of all, each new recipe that I post on the blog in the future will upload to the app, so the app will continue to grow and grow over the years! Also, keep your eyes peeled for exclusive recipe bundles only found in the app. (Spoiler Alert: there are a couple bundles in there right now as our thank you for purchasing the app!)

I’m thrilled to let you know that we’re donating 10% of the proceeds from the first week’s app sales to Blessings in a Backpack Canada, a children’s charity that is near and dear to our hearts. Each Friday, Blessings in a Backpack provides backpacks of food to children all across the country who otherwise may not get enough to eat on the weekends. Just $120 feeds a child on the weekends for an entire school year. How awesome is that?! I’m so excited to be working with Executive Director Karen Green on this wonderful initiative, and together we’ll be directing our donation to local children right here in the Greater Toronto Area.

I truly hope that you’ll love this app, share the recipes with loved ones, and use it in your kitchens (and on the glow!) as much as we do. Thank you all for your continued support, and for the encouragement to make this recipe app a reality when I mentioned the idea a few years ago.

FAQ

1. Which devices will the app work with? Our app has been developed for Apple iOS 8.0+ devices. We’ve optimized the app to display perfectly on both the iPhone and iPad. The iPad version works in both landscape and portrait orientations, while the iPhone version currently supports portrait mode. We’ll be working hard to constantly improve what we offer you in the future!

2. Is there a fee for the app? Yes, there is a small fee of $4.99 USD/$6.99 CAD to download the app.

3. Do you have an app for Android or Windows phones? Our app has been developed for Apple iOS devices (approximately 75% of our readership uses an Apple device). However, we’re open to exploring development for other devices in the future if our budget allows.

4. Will there be any new content in the app aside from the revamped fan-favourite recipes and photography? Yes! As a thank-you for purchasing the app, you’ll receive a free bundle of 8 new recipes exclusive to the app. You’ll also have access to an additional 3 free recipes with a simple social media share. Check out these recipes in the image below!

Wow!! This looks stunning Angela!! Congrats!
At first quick glance I thought this was your new cookbook cover – BUT I’m glad it’s not because I hope it will have your gorgeous face on it :)
Of course I can’t wait for that reveal next! So much excitement for you! How are you handling it all?? ;)

Angela, I have shared the ipad giveaway 3 times on Facebook, but it doesn’t seem to connect back to rafflecopter to give me my entries.

Reply

Angela Liddon April 14, 2016 at 12:51 pm

Hi Debbie, thanks for entering the giveaway, and for choosing to share it with your friends! For each friend that enters the giveaway, you’ll receive +1 entry (up to +10 extra entries). But, Rafflecopter only gives you the additional entries when a person you refer enters the giveaway as well. Don’t worry if you don’t get a notification letting you know you’ve received an extra entry – it’ll go in automatically. Good luck!

I am loving the app, the photography is beautiful and I can’t wait to try out the new recipes and some old favourites!

Rebecca April 13, 2016 at 10:05 pm

Hi Angela,
Thanks for your app! It’s beautiful. I wanted to ask, though, it says Free Bonus Bundle and Spring Bonus, but both say N/A. Are we unable to get the bundles of recipes? Or is that only for Canadian customers? Here’s hoping…….

Angela (Oh She Glows) April 16, 2016 at 10:33 am

Hey Rebecca,
Thank you! We just sent you an email to figure out the issue!

Sara April 14, 2016 at 10:08 am

Congrats on the new app! I’m a little disappointed though, since I cannot enter the giveaway. I understand that these giveaways are a means to promote your hard work, but for someone who chooses not to use some social media platforms (and feels glad about that!) I also miss out on these giveaways.

Angela Liddon April 14, 2016 at 2:05 pm

Hi Sara, thank you for the kind congratulations. :) You should be able to enter the giveaway by logging in using your email (the email login button is just below the blue Facebook login button on the widget). Please let me know if that doesn’t work for you!

Thank you for putting together this app. I recently got an iPhone 6 and this is the first app I bought for myself. I just made “My Favorite Vegan Chili” and am looking forward to using it on vacation this summer.

Congrats on the app! I absolutely love it!!! : ) It’s beautifully photographed and I’m happy to see many of my favorite recipes, like the perfect veggie burgers, included! Love the little bonus recipes, too–I can’t wait to try the almond fudge overnight oats. It exceded my expectations.

Dori April 14, 2016 at 9:43 pm

Once you pay for the app, is everything else free? Do you have to pay for any recipes?

Reply

Angela (Oh She Glows) April 15, 2016 at 6:39 am

Hi Dori,

Currently , yes everything is free. We may have some exclusive paid recipe bundles in the future, but when you purchase the app you’ll receive the free bonus bundle with 8 recipes, and the option for the social media bundle with 3 free recipes. Hope this helps!

Congrats!!!! That is soooo exciting. I am an Android user so I would love to see it available for me to use too. I will be waiting patiently for it and will continue to enjoy the website and cookbooks.

I want this app so bad, but don’t have an apple device. I hope you consider putting an app out for android devices.
I sure do love your recipes and blog!!!
For now I will keep using your amazing book and checking out your blog. Thanks for sharing all your wonderful recipes with us!

Thanks for the sweet comment, Jaimey! We would love to expand to other devices, for sure – hopefully our budget will allow us to do so in the future!:)

Congratulations! I’m very happy you have an app. I guess I’m one of the 25% who has an android device. Please consider giving us the chance to enjoy your app, too!

Thanks,

Stephanie

Let me know if you come out with an app for android phones please.

Hi! I got the app the other day and love it!!! I am confused, though, about the bundles. It says I have successfully “purchased” them, but I cannot get them to open so I can view the recipes. Am I missing something??? Congratulations on this great new step. I have followed you for years and recommended you to many friends, who have also become hooked on your recipes. Great, creative work you are doing!!!

I too am hoping that it will soon be available for Android! OR Kindle Fire.

Kim Casselman May 5, 2016 at 7:50 am

I was so excited about the App that I downloaded it immediately! I must say the visuals are GREAT and I like the ease of use. I am disappointed however in the fact there or so few recipes, unless I’m mistaken there are less than 60 available. I did find a couple of errors with recipe instructions but that’s not a big deal. Would be really helpful if there was a way of making a grocery list within the App.

Jamie May 6, 2016 at 11:03 am

Just putting in a vote for Android! Samsung only for this family, even for our tablets! :) Seems so crazy that 75% of readers have iPhones… pretty much all of my friends & family are android users. Your cookbook is the one cookbook I actually use & everything always turns out perfectly… I will definitely get the app when available on Android!

Karin May 9, 2016 at 3:48 am

I am looking forward to seeing the app for Android too at some point.

Hippie Spinster May 20, 2016 at 4:25 pm

Please consider an Android app. I understand there may be a correlation between veganism and wealth in North America so it may be your least affluent followers who are not able to take advantage of the app.

Jenny June 13, 2016 at 11:22 am

Bummed there is no Android app!

Lisa pes June 25, 2016 at 3:03 pm

That’s a shame. I was really looking forward to downloading the app on my android.

Cheri Hallchurch June 25, 2016 at 6:00 pm

love your recipes, I do have your app but sadly I took it off my iphone…. often when I opened your app it would just start download recipes, I don’t have WIFI in my home so it used up a lot of my data very quickly every time I opened it. wish there would be a way to just update it when I choose not every time I opened it

Reply

Angela July 8, 2016 at 7:43 pm

I’m not sure how I missed the app release, I must’ve been under a rock! But I have it now and I admit I’m absolutely addicted to your recipes and I’m over the moon with the app! Thank you so much for all your hard work. Every recipe is always packed with flavor and texture and yummy vegan goodness. I simply cannot express how much I appreciate you and your work! I even make your recipes for non- vegans who always rave about the tastiness. i can’t wait for the new book!

I’m so glad to hear you’re enjoying the app, Angela! Thanks so much for your support.

Hi,
Whised that this app was also available for android so I could download your app.

It’s definitely something we’re keeping in mind for the future if budget allows, Chantal!

Great site. Going to make going vegan a lot easier. Please roll out an Android app asap!

Reply

Stacey Brewer October 11, 2016 at 5:00 pm

Wish I could use your app, but it is IOS only.

Please consider an Android version.

You are missing out on a huge market as well as disappointing people. :/
