It’s so easy to save my favorite recipes on this app. Being able to categorize them and keep them organized is a plus. I’ve had no trouble with saving recipes.
I’m really bummed about the “upgrade” on the app. I cannot afford another subscription right now to unlimited cook modes. This app is great for saving time and remembering where you left off when you’re busy cooking or baking with little kids in the home! But the reason I rated it lower is that there’s a limit to only 3 “cook modes” a week - you can’t even preview the cooking instructions unless you click cook mode (which then wastes one of your 3 for the week!) and i often base my decisions on what to make off of how easy/simple the cooking instructions are along with what materials/methods are needed. Also when in cook mode, I’ve randomly gotten kicked out of it and what do you know... if you go back to the SAME recipe you were JUST working on it makes you waste another one of your 3 chances. At least let us access the same recipe all day or week please!
I love the functionality of Prepear and had begun to build an arsenal of recipes. I even got my mother and MIL on board so we could share things! Then suddenly the newest version requires you to buy a $70 subscription just to be able to read recipes in the app, which was one of the main draws. Feels like a terrible bait and switch. Bring back Prepear mode to the free version!
I loved this app and found it so helpful in meal planning, but with the updates that now charge just to view the full recipe (?!), I’m going to start using a different route. Hugely disappointing.
I reviewed 5 stars until using the app this week and realizing that Cook Mode is not unlimited and to view your directions, you need to pay $60/year. I guess I expected it to come sooner than later but regardless, it is a great help and I love it better than any previous app I’ve paid for. I know what features I am looking for after trying many, MANY, meal planning apps...and Prepear takes the cake. Prepear is user-friendly, simple, and beautiful. The recent update has made it so much better. My favorite features are being able to save recipes from websites, and the Walmart grocery feature. No need to type in each individual item, the app does it for you!! Yes!! 👏🏻 Great job, Prepear!!
I’m ***WAS*** very happy to be using Prepear. I have changed my review from a 5 star app to a 1 star review because of a recent programming change I discovered on June 8, 2020. I can no longer see unlimited recipe directions. I am given just ***3*** free in-app opportunities to see the directions. It resets the count every Monday. And simply taking a cursory look at the directions counts as a single use. They have changed their policy to see directions you’ve imported to make you 1) pay their exorbitant $60 a year to use in-app directions, or 2) force you to go back to the spammy online source I got the the recipe from—you know, the one with endless verbiage, multiple ads, and annoying pop-ups. You can’t even see directions that you have ADAPTED to make the recipe your own. This is untenable for me, and has caused me to look elsewhere for another app. I will leave my original 5 star review below to show you how it was a great app that has been ruined by greed. ORIGINAL REVIEW: The free version does a lot. Create meal plans, shop with automatic grocery lists, and collect recipes and share with friends on Facebook. The two aspects I’ve really enjoyed so far are 1) the ability to find an online recipe and add it to this app using the import option. (You can manually add your own recipes too.) It also 2) adds items in the recipe’s list of ingredients to the grocery list with a single touch. There’s a way to move items from the grocery list to the pantry if you already have them too. The paid version has prepared meal plans that are a little pricy at $9.99 a month but I got an introductory offer in an email for $1.00 and 90 days of meal plans. (I have done that but am not convinced it’s the right choice for me.) All the recipes are searchable and are free though! There are allergy (like shellfish) and diet (like gluten free) options too—quite a few of them actually. The only frustrations are glitchy procedural issues that have been reported but have not all been fixed. For example, when moving recipes the "right swipe" reveals menu options. However the revealed menu does not always disappear and results in the recipe not being visible. Exiting the app or rebooting your phone will usually solve this. Hopefully as the app matures these will be resolved.
My weight-loss program suggested Prepear and I immediately downloaded it. It’s easy to create my list and I can add or delete when I need to.
Like how Prepearer saves the recipes nice app.
I have been using this app for years and I really like it, the only thing that I don’t like is that it will not let me view my recipes in landscape mode on my ipad pro,which is frustrating.
I really like this app but the web import function hasn’t worked for a while, significantly deceasing the apps utility to me
