Good Content, Frustrating Implementation

:
With the ascendency of Nordic cuisine, the timing of the Nordic Food Glossary app could not be better timed. Indeed, the nature of New Nordic cooking -- centred around hyper-local and obscure ingredients not likely to be found in your typical travel dictionary -- makes this free app a must download for any gastronomic explorer venturing to Scandinavia.

Welcome though it may be, the app is currently deeply flawed. First, there's no way of scrolling through an alphabetical listing of terms in any language other than your native one. This problem is compounded by the finicky search: "ål" means "eel" in Danish, but if you type "al", the results come up blank.

In contrast to any good iPhone dictionary app, the search is not fuzzy. If you do not type in a term *exactly* as it appears in the app (bearing in mind what you see on a menu may not be exactly the same as it appears in the database), you will not find the word.

It's a shame that searches are so problematic because the app's content is good. It may miss a few terms here and there (such Noma stalwarts as woodruff (skovmærke) are conspicuously absent, as are many mushrooms), but it covers most terms from musk ox to mulberries.

In another example of iffy implementation marring good intentions, the app's database of terms can be updated and even downloads a fresh copy when you first open it (great!) -- but to update it in the future, you must go to the settings menu where you'll find a rather ambiguous on/off switch under "Update". Does this turn updates on and off? Not exactly. If you enable this, you'll find that the app re-downloads the *entire* database (whether it's been updated or not) next time it opens.

In its current state, I don't think the app is robust enough to be the adventurous eater's sole food dictionary in Scandinavia -- you'll still want to access to something like the Nordic Recipe Archive's excellent glossary -- but it's a good start.
