Whether you frequent your local supermarket, the small corner store down the street, or your favorite stand at the Farmer’s Market, picking the proper produce can cause quite the predicament. Everyone has his or her own methods of picking out the ripest melon or the freshest lettuce, but are they truly the right way to find fruits and vegetables that will taste great and stay fresh until they make it to your table?
With Produce Pal by Silton Solutions LLC constantly at hand, shoppers need not fear this conundrum ever again. Produce Pal features a database of over 70 different types of fruits and vegetables, each with its own set of criteria for what makes the product ideal. Plus, users are not only provided with instructions on how to pick their produce, but also on how to store their items once they get home.
When starting up Produce Pal, simply choose the category you are interested by using the ‘Fruits’ and ‘Vegetables’ tabs in the navigation bar at the bottom of the screen. Each category is alphabetized, from Apple to Watermelon and Artichoke to Zucchini, making it easy to find the correct item quickly. For each product, Produce Pal offers a description of what to look for when buying the item, how to store the item at home, the product’s nutritional value, and a few fun facts that may impress your friends and guests.
Though Produce Pal presents a simple, useful concept with an equally simple and useful application, users truly need nothing more than what this minimalist application offers. All the necessary information is laid out right in front of you in a clear, concise manner, making it an easily accessible tool that will in fact help you save money in the long run simply by providing tips on how to keep your produce fresher longer.
Plus, if you happen to discover a fruit or vegetable that is not already part of the database, simply contact Silton Solutions LLC and they will add the item in their next update. You can access their website right within the application itself, on the second page as you swipe through their ‘About’ tab. Here, users can also peruse a list of other apps by Silton Solutions LLC as they continue to swipe through the pages of the ‘About’ tab., including Silly Stories, After Shock, and Chalk A Lot.
So get ready to start munching because for anyone who loves fruits and vegetables, loves eating healthy, and loves saving money (and who doesn’t?), Produce Pal will surely become your new grocery-shopping buddy.
