Vegan Apps

We are all familiar with the phrase “there’s an app for that,” but are there any apps that could help me out with my vegan lifestyle?

From vegan recipe apps, to vegan restaurant finders, there are many different vegan apps to choose from, some free, and others cost a small fee. Here’s a list of some useful vegan apps that are worth the download.

HappyCow VeginOut 


The HappyCow app provides a list or map of the nearest vegetarian and vegan restaurants and stores to your current location. With listings in over 100 different countries, this app is perfect for finding veg-friendly spots while traveling. The free version of the app gives you a list of the nearest vegan, vegetarian, and veg-friendly spots, and allows you to search your surrounding up to 25 miles. For less than three dollars (Canadian) you can buy the full HappyCow VeginOut Guide app. The app lets you submit your own restaurant and store reviews, upload photos, and save favourites on your device.

Cost: Free | Available on: Android, iPhone



Have you ever read product labels and wondered if all the ingredients are vegan or not? The Animal-Free app allows you check if an ingredient is animal-free or vegan. With hundreds of listed ingredients, you can search for a specific one and it gives you a write-up and lists why the ingredient is or is not animal-free. The iPhone version of the app has a barcode scanner option that allows you to simply scan the product’s barcode to let you know if the product is vegan/ vegetarian friendly (the scanner only works with HD camera’s and with iOS 4.0 or above).

Vegan Recipes!


A decent vegan recipe app called “Vegan Recipes!” by NetSummitApps grabbed my attention. The free (for a limited time) app gives you hundreds of different vegan recipes that are sorted into categories (breakfast, salad, pasta, cookies, etc.). The app also offers some vegan tips and recipe videos. This app is a great spot to get recipe ideas quick off your phone, but it doesn’t allow you to search for a specific recipe. If you like browsing through new vegan recipes, this app definitely delivers.

Cost: Free | Available on: Android
