Praise for the Joy of Cooking app:
“As in the book, the fire hose of information — how to frost a cake, make salt-cured lemons, field-dress a gut-shot animal — is overwhelming, but the digital design makes it easier to navigate through 4,500 recipes and numberless tips.”
— Julia Moskin, The New York Times
“@TheJoyOfCooking’s new iPad app might be the best thing to happen to home cooking since…the cast iron pan?”
— Samin Nosrat, Author of SALT, FAT, ACID, HEAT; via Twitter
“One of the things I love about this app is that it helps bring recipes to my attention that I’ve passed over in the print versions.”
— Marisa McClellan, Food in Jars

Device(s) App Was Tested On:
Navigation appears straight forward at first. It is easy to navigate between chapters and introductory materials. Voiceover reads all page elements, but when I selected a recipe I found it necessary to tap on the right side of the screen to access the ingredient list and directions.
Once I was in the recipe pane, however, I was able to read things perfectly.
I haven't tried the cooking timers, but that tab is fully accessible.
Additionally, there is a very nice guide in the utilities menu which has labeled headings for each of the help sections.
