Entries are closed – congrats to FoodInJars reader Dani Wolber who won the $100 Whole Foods gift card! Winners of the app were also notified, so if you haven’t heard from me you’ll just need to buy it…but I have great news! An update to the app is now available with a HUGE new feature: Internet Recipe Capture! Go to websites you know and love like Epicurious, AllRecipes, BigOven, Food in Jars…and tap “Capture Recipe” to save into Spinning Meals. See below for screenshots, watch the trailer/tutorial video, or just get it now!
Thank you all for spreading the word about Spinning Meals, many families will eat better next week thanks to you! This giveaway seemed well-appreciated and was very effective so we may repeat it again soon. Stay tuned, and don’t stop sharing!
Spinning Meals the Movie
If a picture says a thousand words, how much does a 2-minute, 30-frame-per-second high definition video tell? I don’t know but it’s a good question for pi day, right?
Below is the trailer for Spinning Meals, a video that steps you through the app and what it means for your weekly routine. I hope you’ll agree, it’s pretty great, thanks to the amazing folks at myapptrailers.com, and some great teamwork scripting it and getting all the visuals and text to work together. Captions, too. What do you think?
You’ve Got To Give It Away
I like giving, and obviously want the world to know about what Spinning Meals can do for them, so we are running a giveaway. For the next 48 hours, everyone who shares the Spinning Meals trailer will be entered in a random drawing to receive a $100 gift card to either Williams-Sonoma, Whole Foods, or Amazon, winner chooses. And three other randomly-chosen participants will receive a promo code to use or give away, to download Spinning Meals for free. People, this is a SMALL BLOG. Your chances of winning are very good, compared to large sites. More importantly, you know you’ll be helping some families find more time and organization.
The address is easy to remember: http://trailer.spinningmeals.com
How To Enter
Doing any of these three sharing options will qualify you for the drawing:
1. Be sure to Like Spinning Cook on Facebook, then find this post and click Share. Last (important) come back to this post and say “shared” or something similar in the comments. (Since I’m not friends with all of my fans, I don’t have access to your walls and so fb can’t show me who shared it, thus the comments approach.)
2. Tweet the link to the trailer, or this post, on twitter, and (IMPORTANT) be sure to mention @spinningcook when you do so.
3. Share the trailer publicly on any other social media site (LinkedIn, Tumblr, Reddit, your blog, you name it) and tell me that you’ve done so (leave a comment on fb or tweet to me). Honor system applies here.
NOTE: You get credit for each social media channel you’ve shared on, not limited to one per person. However, multiple shares/tweets on the same site still count as one – please report accordingly.
This runs through Friday at
68pm, at which point winners will be randomly chosen and notified. Yes, I realize that Blue Like Jazz is running a similar trailer-sharing giveaway, which I feel comfortable shamelessly copying, given the interesting parallels between the two projects as I wrote about on Tuesday.
Good luck to all!
