I purchased this on my mac and once I figured out how to use the categories and change or add I was happy with the app. So I decided to sync up with my iPhone. Was disappointed that I had to pay again for that, but I went ahead and did so. Now I see that the ingredients and the directions are on separate screens on the phone and it is not so convenient! Am I missing something? So disappointed :-(
I have been using Recipe Keeper for 9 months, prior to that I had used MacGourmet. When I got my new iBoop Pro I need to get a current version of a recipe app and reviewed the options. I am totally satisfied with Recipe Keeper, it does it all and in a user friendly way. I was able to transfer the recipes from MacGourmet so I did not loose my existing catelog. It imports recipes from the web so easily that I love to search the web for what I need for a meal and quicly and easily import and use. The felxibility to arrange and categorize the recipes allows me to save and later find the receipes in a way that suits me best, nothing more frustrating than knowing you have a great recipe and cannot find it...Grrrr. The shopping list creations also has the flexibility I want, the default structure is by food category, I like to sort by the store I will shop in and RK allows me to reorganize and structure the way I like to shop at different stores for different products. Without doubt Recipe Keeper is the best app and worth the price charged.
Regardless of what the information states about syncing across devices, that only applies if you have the same platform for the devices. For examples, syncing works for iphone and ipad but not macbook and ipad. You have to purchase the Pro version for every device. If you are looking for an all-around syncing program, this is not the one to buy. I do not recommend.
The scanning feature works really well - I'm so impressed I can scan a newspaper clipping and get it all filled in within a few minutes!
I use this app to store the recipes I make that I really like. I have the app on my phone and on my computer. It's convenient on my phone because if I'm out and I think about making something, I can look up the ingredients I need then and there without having to run home to get the recipe.
I've been using this for quite some time now. It just keeps getting better. I even use it with a DIY category to keep simple household tasks and hacks that otherwise would require looking for the manual or doing a web search to refresh my ailing memory.
I love the iOS versions of the app and love the app itself but feel a little misled that it's advertised "sure you can sync to all your devices" but then a separate fee is required to do so for a Mac. Come on guys....
I wanted something that could import recipes from the files from another (outdated) program, grab recipes from web pages and give credit to the web sites for them, print nicely, and sync between my computer and my phone. It's done everything I wanted, and I had a great (and fast!) email conversation with customer support to get my old stuff imported. Very happy customer!
App seems to work well on my Mac, but the option to upgrade to be able to sync across all of your devices is deceptive. The $5.99 upgrade to sync across all of my iOS devices is worth it, but to have to pay another $5.99 just to be able to use the app synced on the ONLY mac we have in the house is deceptive. Developer provides the same canned response to everyone who complains about having to purchase multiple times to cover iOS devices and Mac devices. Kind of ridiculous when iOS apps can be ported to Mac. In short, i paid $5.99 to be abel to sync my recipes with the one Mac I have.
Simple and to the point. Worth getting. Allows me to share a recipe which is nice.
