Dinner Buddy helps you to plan your meals in advance, store and rate your recipes, search the web to view & save recipes, auto-generate a shopping list based on your planned meals, share recipes with friends and send weekly menu or shopping list to others. Once you have saved your regular meals as recipes you will be able to randomly generate a weekly menu, or browse the web and your stored meals for inspiration. Shopping list function generates a list based on your selected meals and allows you to tick off ingredients you already have at home and tick off as you shop. Web search function allows you to search and save recipes from a number of well known websites including All Recipes, BBC, Food.com and Jamie Oliver.

Didn’t seem user friendly

Couldn’t find instructions or a tutorial before ads popped up three times. Looked like several features you had to pay for to use.

Frequent video commercials with new update.

Has to delete. Ever third click has 30 sec. commercial.

Hard to navigate

I was really hoping this would be what it purports to be . Could get though ALL the ads to even start to use it. Bogus . Talk about a hook !? Don’t list as FREE if it’s unusable without the purchase. Ugh

Better before the update

This app was a favorite of mine and I used it like everyday, for weekly meals. Since the update though, it is less user friendly and way too many ad pop-ups now. The design update is the reason I will no longer use it and now delete.

Latest Update Not Implemented Well

Latest update took this from an ‘ok’ app that got the job done (albeit with some issues) to a poor app where they added extra steps to what was there before unless you pay. Looking for another option.

Total mess now

This update prevents any editing. You ruined a nice simple app.

Hot mess

I have been using this app & LOVING it until the last update in the App Store, now every single time I try to delete a meal that was in there before the update it crashes. I cannot delete anything. So sad.

It was great - before the update

I used to love this app, before the update. I used it to plan dinners for the week. Now I have to type in dinner (only one extra step, but an obnoxious one) and then I don’t know how to erase the dinner option I picked anymore. Now I feel like I’m just being asked to upgrade constantly

Could be a good app

Love the idea of this app and was excited to use it but it’s very slow.. when I try to search recipe ideas it doesn’t load and I have to restart the app. Please update the app!

The reason I looked for an app for a weekly menu was to help with productivity. I didn’t even get to try it out and create a menu because every time I click on something to create a menu a 5 second add pops up completely covering your entire screen. I don’t have patience for such invasive advertising. I don’t mind a banner add if it doesn’t cover the function of the app but when you have to stop and wait for an add to let you click it off it defeats the purpose of an app to help with organizing or productivity. Really sick of these types of apps/advertising. I would pay for a good app but can’t really tell if it’s any good when I can’t even try it! Deleting this app!
