Great app

I love this app, I tell everybody about it. One minor nitpick, it’s very annoying that when you schedule a recipe it defaults to one serving rather than how many servings are in the recipe as written. If you’re not thinking you’ll end up buying or adding the wrong amount of ingredients. It’s most likely that the user wants to make the recipe as written, so that should be the default.

I paid to own this app outright precisely to avoid getting sucked into a money pit: years of investments in a niche personal tool that does one little thing. Now I’m being told that I will be unable to continue using the app going forward, except in read-only mode after one year of “free” subscription. The problem is twofold: (1) I relied on the nature of an outright purchase and have not been in a hurry to digitize recipes, so I have very little content to date. So I will basically have gifted the developers my money for a loan rather than a purchase. SaaS is a loan. No thank you. (2) The app, if I do rush to fill it with content now, will be useless for the very reason I bought it in the first place: data consolidation. The last thing I want is recipes spread across different apps. Should I never add another app to my personal catalog again? Or should I waste my time and homescreen space switching between catalogs? Both are terrible options. This is, frankly, fraud and theft. I paid for X and you are taking it away and replacing it with Y. I do not consent. Why not just grandfather legacy users into lifetime plans?

Great, But..

This is a great app. Soon, I will buy the full 40$ version. But, please please PLEASE add this app to the AppStore for MACBOOK. That way I can cook while looking at my laptop, instead of from my phone. Thank you developers!

Great for the working Chef

This app is perfect it’s not too little and not too much just what a real Chef needs to create his recipes and continue to move forward without wasting too much time thank you

One of my fave apps of all time

I cook. A LOT. I have recipes saved as screen shots. In my gmail folders, on my iPad. In my phone, not to mention zillions of hard copies of recipes saved in this binder and that. At first I went for the freebie app, but I didn’t have to reach the 40 free recipe limit before I knew I had to have complete access to this app. I have to say I use it most days. Some days more than once. It’s so easy to type in “butter” and all the recipes I’ve listed with butter pop up. Importing the recipes including the photo is so easy and I’m tech challenged sometimes. This app is easy and intuitive. Pretty sure I should have gone for the lifetime subscription. UPDATE: my renewal was due. I DID go for the lifetime. Still one of the very few apps I use an a daily basis.

Great App!! Just one suggestion :)

This app is nearly perfect! I love the design and all of the features. The only feature I would love added is the ability to organize tags into custom groups so you can organize recipes in your own way - I would love to see this in a future update!

Its pretty Ok

This app is pretty ok at what it does. The free version allows you to keep 40 recipes which is great, but its expensive to buy. There are better alternatives out there (Paprika and Recipe Keeper) that have more features for less money. 3 stars for allowing 40 free recipes.

Great app to manage your recipes

When a cooking recipe app I was using for many years changed in a way I didn’t like, I started researching for find a new app to manage my recipes. After trying out different apps I found Cookbook is easy to use and did everything I need it to do. They make it easy to enter my recipes from my Word docs and have them in a more convenient format for cooking and baking. When I find other recipes I want try online, the app makes it really easy to import and allows me to customize as I adapt the recipe to make it my own. I really love the way CookBook - Recipe Manager App works.

Feature-packed, Elegantly crafted App!

For a little over a year, I’ve been only cooking and eating meals that I’ve prepared and so I have a bunch of recipes bookmarked and organized as best as I could manage on Safari but I hate how most recipe sites follow a top-down approach to show the information that I’m looking for in a recipe; summary, ingredients AND THEN steps. I’ve craved for being able to view steps and ingredients side-by-side. This app has that horizontal view and other features that I didn’t even know I needed! The fact that I can import recipes is great, since I have a bunch bookmarked. I love that I can have a shopping list generated for me, while before, I would need to use some of my precious time to do so. I love that you can set timers that defaults to time required for a particular step. I use siri homepod for my timers usually but it’s awesome to have this feature in-app. I’m not sure how much time this app will give me back, but the flow that I had set up for food prep was definitely a process, now… The only time I take is trying to figure out what I want to eat for the week! Love it :)

What an improved experience!

Holy mackerel, I love the new scanning user interface! This was the greatest leap forward I’ve ever seen in an app. Love, love, love!
