Indie software developer Greg Cheong today announced that bento box planning and recipe application, Bento Master, is now available on the App Store.
Bento Master allows you to select from a variety of authentic Japanese dishes including rice-based main dishes and numerous meat, egg, veggie and fruit sides then visually arrange them together in a virtual bento box. Once satisfied with your creation you can tap a button to view all the recipes listed conveniently together. Favorite bento lunch designs can be saved to make again later. There is also a feature to share pictures of bento designs with friends on Facebook.
Bento Master is a great tool for trying out and visualizing new bento lunch ideas before starting to cook. It also eliminates the need to search though pages and pages of recipes in order to make a complete meal.
Bento Master costs $2.99 and includes helpful tips on designing and packing bento boxes, recommended tools and important food safety information. It supports both English and Japanese languages.
