Pinterest adds new features for recipe discovery, filters, and recommendations

Pinterest has just added a bunch of new food-specific features to its service and Android app. If you're searching for something to cook up tonight, the Pinterest Android app can give you a ton of new ways to find something.

So when I saw the BBC's Good Food app on the Play Store this afternoon, I was intrigued. Then, I tried it, and I have to say - I'm impressed. This app is well designed, runs smoothly, and is absolutely gorgeous. It's seriously good. If you cook, just download it right now and snatch up all the add-on recipe books.
