I’ve been using Food Monster for 5 or 6 years. I am a avid cook and as a 40-year vegetarian then vegan, it is the first place I go to for ideas. I always recommend the site to anyone who is curious about a vegan diet. I can’t praise the all the contributors and One Green Planet enough. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!
Bought the paid app - cannot access the collections. Contacted support multiple times, finally told it was “being worked on and will be fixed in a future build”. When? In what decade? I paid for access to the collections, and I don’t have access. Not happy! Can see recently posted recipes, but unless you’re proactive and bookmark what you see, you will ultimately not have access to them. Recipes are posted by a variety of people, and some recipes are virtually unreadable or unusable. Is there a test kitchen? Definitely not a happy customer right now.
App would shut down at times. Seems like every recipe I had tried to make had ingredient/s missing or steps missing or out of order, unclear. Very frustrating. Forget asking any questions in the comments section, they went unanswered. If you want a variety of recipe ideas without clear instructions, they do have that. Someone needs to review the recipes or test before posting!
Don’t purchase this app! You cannot cancel once you have it.
The concept is great but the app just doesn’t function correctly. It’s constantly reloading as you scroll through the recipes. It will then freeze and shut off. You never get to go through the recipes bc it will keep happening as soon as you start scrolling. Also, on the majority of recipes I did get to click on, it doesn’t provide you with the nutrition information. There’s no breakdown available which is the main reason you pay for a subscription.
It’s not free at all. You can’t see a single recipe unless you pay a subscription. You can sign up for the free trial, but if you forget to cancel they will automatically bill your iTunes. Also, if you read through some of the five stars you can tell some of them work for the company. Like Joebobble.
Upon trying to scroll through the featured items after downloading, it kept pausing to load, skipping back up to earlier recipes, and was unresponsive at times. When I finally found a recipe I liked the preparation instructions were locked behind a paywall along with nutrition and serving size information. There are far better vegan recipes apps out there, many without a paywall.
So disappointed. Can’t open collections, crashes constantly and is in general really hard to navigate! I was very excited about this app, but now I’m trying to figure out how to cancel my subscription. I’ve sent several emails concerning various issues but have never received a response.
Wow, who knew that the search function can’t spell? Type in sugar free carrot cake, no results found, go to collections, there it is. Try to open collections after saving it, no go. Seems this should be very basic. What does squash, bean and kale have to do with carrot cake? Yummy? I love squash, beans and kale, just not in my carrot cake. Let’s get it together...
Why pay $20/year for an app that has no print option? I love the recipes, but I would never pay for any app if I can't print out the recipes. Total waste of time and money. I'll stick with the freebie. I have contacted the company many times, and they never get back to me. Most of their recipes are from writers who have the recipes on their own blog. I will just keep going to them and save myself the $20.
