One of the things I hate most about cooking is that I'm terrible at math...which makes figuring out the ounces, cups, pints and quarts a nightmare. That's where this app comes in handy! Ratio acts as an ingredient calendar, so if you have more or less of an item that a recipe calls for, it'll adjust the measures accordingly. It costs 4.99, but you'll probably use it all the time. Problem solved!
