  • Unusable

    By RCPeterson
    I tried to enter a personal custom recipe by typing it in. There are no “smarts” to adding a recipe. It’s just a free text box that lets you type in anything, rather than letting you add ingredients one by one. I don’t need a recipe app for that - I could just use a notes app like Google Keep, Evernote, etc. I expect a recipe app to calculate nutrition facts, allow me to vary the portion sizes, etc. Not to be a limited notes app. But even that functionality doesn’t work. I can’t type ten characters without the app minimizing my keyboard and exiting the text field. And when I finally fought enough to put in my whole recipe and clicked save, the app crashed and all my work was lost. No thanks.
  • What was the focus?

    By mrmanny3
    I have had the old app a long time. But this new one seems to want me focused on the parts dealing with buying and interacting. I get a recipe, and you have to pick the show all ingredients option to see the whole list, then pick show recipe, and it comes up, but another box comes up about sharing ideas. At this point you fight to keep the recipe on screen and finally throw your hands up in the air. I deleted this app, and looked for another.
  • Needs A Lot of Work

    By Wizebkgirl
    This app is terribly slow and the manual recipe input is glitchy. You can barely put a word in without the keyboard disappearing. That’s extremely annoying when writing out a lengthy recipe. It takes forever for something you click on to come up and trying to change my username is impossible after setup. Please fix it!
  • Good idea

    By Esr86
    It’s nice that it will sync with what I upload on the computer. Putting in recipes on the phone app is very frustrating as keyboard keeps disappearing and hard to type anything. I first thought something was on my screen it was doing it so much, but there’s no problem with other apps and repeatedly is when I’ve tried this one.
  • Used old one all the time but

    Old one had a great interface for groceries, but this version totally stinks. Sorry, off to find something else.
  • Not so happy

    By The relentless chef
    The app is quite unstable crashes quite frequently. It doesn’t let me edit the recipes or even delete once I have saved it.
  • Ads on Pro Account

    By Huminbrd
    Really? First you take away my calendar planner and only let me access TWO WEEKS of it. I can’t see any of the recipes on my planner outside of that two week window. Now I see ads? And badly done ads too, that go to a blank screen. Last—please stop the Pinterest Recipes bot from posting copies of of other people’s recipes. Sometimes that’s all you show me is those stupid half finished Pinterest recipes. The ingredients are rarely entered properly and it’s a pain to try and sort out.
  • Didn’t do what I needed

    By sfayeb
    I downloaded this app on my iPad because I had many written or printed copies of recipes that I wanted to get online and also be able to search. The details said that you could scan written recipes, but what they don’t tell you is that you only get three free scans with the free version. I understand that you get more with the paid Pro version, but you still will end up paying to scan your own recipes when you go over that limit. It was a moot point anyway since the scan would never show up in the app. I also was unable to save any recipes from websites. It kept coming up saying that the save didn’t work. There also are some ads that interfered with search boxes. The keyboard kept disappearing and flickering. Very disappointing since I had high hopes of this app. Will keep searching.
  • Almost perfect

    By AmyF40
    I’ve been using this app for a while and enjoy the recipes. I like that there are different versions so you can pick and choose and you can search by ingredients. The only reason I’m not giving it 5 stars is because you can’t search by cooking method. I’d like to see a sorting option for grilling, slow cooker, etc.
  • Awful change

    By Rani117
    The older version 6.2 was easier to navigate. With version I can not find any of my recipes
