    Import easy from any site. Get a month calendar view of planned meals. Can edit recipes, add categories & move items like categories within a list to what works for you by dragging & dropping.

    This app isn’t worth any money. Not what I was hoping for. I would give it no stars.
  • The Best Combination Grocery/Recipe Box/Meal Planner, Period.

    I was a BigOven premium member for years, but the bugs just got out of hand. Discovering MealBoard made it all better though. For a fraction of the cost of one year of that other guy, MealBoard did everything and it did it better. Sync your recipes, pull shopping ingredients from the recipes, and voila, you’re all set. Love, love, love this app. I’d like to make it easier to just tap in some random stuff for the grocery list on the fly, but that’s about the only gripe I can imagine. I entered 90+ recipes using the app and also importing from the web with very little trouble. Great job guys!
  • Love it!

    Entering recipes online couldn't be easier. Love the grocery list option and flexibilty on meal planning, list management. Love love! Would be fab if app could identify recipes using common ingredients to plan weekly menu

    I have been using this app for over a year and really like it. The only downside to me is that you can only plan 28 days at a time. I plan my menus for the entire month and do a once a month shopping trip for meats and staples.
  • Great organizational tool!

    I like how easily this app integrates a meal plan, a grocery list, and an inventory. It does take some time to set up, but it really wasn’t as bad as i expected, and it’s worth it for the convenience of not having to look through the house every week for items that are low. The one area that I struggle with now is non-food item inventory. You aren’t going to put trash bags on your meal plan, right? But you can put them in your pantry, and at least that allows you to add them to the grocery list when you need them.
  • Can’t live without it.

    I’ve been using this app for like 8 years. Like since iPhones came out.. LOL. I downloaded this on my first iPhone and seriously don’t know how I’d cook without it. I cook almost every night and this is a huge time saver that keeps me organized.
  • My favorite app

    I maybe use two apps I’m the laziest app user you’ve ever met. But THIS folks. This is a game changer. Makes everything so much easier. Would buy it 10x times.

    This app is truly complete and wonderful. Worked with it a while before writing the review. This is truly the best meal planner. Easy to add and download recipes. Adjusting the recipes for just 2 with one click; highly recommended.
  • Completely Useless Unless Your Household is 100% iPhone

    This is a great app...but it doesn’t have an Android version, so it’s incredibly difficult to share things if not everyone in your household is on the same OS. The web interface only lets you edit the recipe list, not any part of your meal calendar, and you can’t share things by email if you don’t use the iPhone’s mail app, leaving text message the only real sharing option. Not practical at all. Please make an Android version so the app can be used in mixed-OS households! That said, I love the way the app makes it easy to add ingredients to a grocery list automatically. A few minor features could use improvement. For instance, users need to be able to zoom in on the “recipe photo” when in viewing mode (you can only do this in edit mode), because if you have old-fashioned recipe cards that you don’t have time to copy manually, snapping a photo is a quick way to save those recipes. But without zoom you can’t read those recipes since they’re stuck at the size of a thumbnail. I heard really great things about this app, but all it’s best features are inaccessible without the ability to share across platforms.
