    I never really cared for reading long recipes, so my friend told me about this app called Cook Reel on Android. They are supposed to show short cooking videos, but it doesn't seem to work. Does anyone here have experience with this app?

    Thanks!

    The reviews aren't very good, many naming your same issue and it has a very low download count which is usually a bad sign. Skip it, not worth the time it seems.

    I had an experience with them, I like the videos and found some great recipes! but when I go to get the ingredients and directions there isn't anything there or bits and pieces. Did you guys have the same problem?

      YouTube is great for video recipes as I am a visual learner myself.  My favorite channels include: Foodwishes,  which has great variety and is quite entertaining; Chefsteps,  which is super informational about food science and very artistically presented as far as cinematography and music (However they have some very specialized equipment for some of their creations, having worked with the authors of modernist cuisine.); and most recently How to make sushi, which has alot of sushi techniques and recipes, knife skills and highly technical garnish work, some food science, and also has a bit of humor here and there. Check these out sometime.

    Hi Silently Cooking .... I think you'ld have to notice the ingredients on your video ... that is more comfortable for watchers )))
