Depending on what you choose to cook, the app will tell you what you need to buy at the supermarket so that you can easily see what you need to pick up in one trip, rather than make multiple trips as you might without such planning.

For additional revenue streams, they will consider an online meal ordering service, advertising, and partnership with online healthcare services.
