Great app! Keep up the good work!
I can’t even get this app to work because it consistently has problems reaching its own servers which means it is completely useless.
This app allows for you to take a picture of a recipe using your smartphone and import it with a wizard to take you through different sections ( ex. Ingredients, Instructions, etc...) and uses OCR to convert it to text without any extra charge(some apps charge per recipe for OCR). So you can quickly get your recipes in, do meal planning, and create a shopping list of all the ingredients needed for the recipes you are planning on making. This is a great app and if they can quickly add automatically calculating nutritional information, this would knock it out of the park and really help people manage their health!
Needs nutritional information
But everything else is great! Previous review was retracted due to the site I used not working with any recipe organizers. But please please please add a share button to Safari!
I'm not usually the reviewing type person, but I just can't keep quiet about this app! I've already told 5+ family members about it! I too have tried different free apps but they all lack one thing or the other. But this app has it all. My favorite thing about the app is the minimalist clutter-free design and overall aesthetics of the interface across the whole program! It's always such a pleasure opening it up every time. My next favorite thing is that you can import recipes from almost any website and it recognizes ingredients, steps, title, pictures, and etc. with immaculate precision and organizes them accordingly. To my delight, the app also converts recipes in different languages with little editing!!! I was excited about that! The only thing I would change is that you can't access the main menu button from the "my recipes" page as well as some other pages. Would be great to access the main menu from anywhere in the app. But that's being nit-picky. This app is still a five star for me! Good job guys! Thank you.
I was so excited to find this, but frustration soon replaced any warm feelings i had. While it’s a great organizer for online recipes, it’s IMPOSSIBLE to scan, import, or upload any recipe from a book.
I’ve tried several free apps, several paid apps, and this has been the best so far. It has everything. Being able to also log on a computer was very important to me. Sometimes, it’s faster to type on a laptop, or take photos of a recipe, or pulling recipes off of webpages, instead of inputting manually using your iPhone. This has all of these features, plus more! To top it off, their customer service IS SO fast with replying to their support emails, and resolution was extremely quick. Will never use another recipe app again. This is the best, and only one I’ll use.
After loosing all of my recipes with Zest, hating the user interface in Copymethat and Paprika, I’ve finally found the Cookbook app and it’s perfect. I recommended it to the large russian speaking cooking community and whoever downloaded it - loves it as well.
I usually don’t write reviews but I feel I must for this wonderful app! It’s everything I’ve been searching for to organize all my recipes, and well worth the price. Thank you for a great product.
