Do not buy this app. Very unfortunate that America’s Test Kitchen has allowed this to happen. Great show, awful business practice.
Still cant log in to the app with an existing paid account from online. Another $50 just for this app—are u nuts? I cant even log in to see if the app is any good because I am not going to risk being charged a second account! Do not buy!
I wish I had seen some of the reviews. Do not order this app. Over $50 for recipes and no way to cancel. Reached out to customer support to cancel and they said to contact iTunes to cancel. Awful
The app, unlike the website, is horrible. Looks like a ten year old designed it.
They automatically charge you $50.00 after the 14 day trial period and will not issue a refund. This is only for an app. $50.00 for an app- this is such a shame and how they make their money- by conning people into a ‘free trial’.
Given the lack of fresh & modern content, restrictive access and overall elitist vibe from the entire enterprise, I’m not sure why I was surprised that the “new” app followed the same formula as the old people running the company. I’m done with all things ATK/CI/CC once my annual subscription has expired. VERY archaic approach to content access within the app(the exception being the shopping list feature). My subscription includes “all access including cooking school” and yet the features couldn’t be more inaccessible. It’s as if they set out to make it as difficult as possible to visit their websites. Waste of time!
So I’ve been a long-time but intermittent subscriber — going back to Cook’s Magazine. I like the magazines and trust the recipes. Not so much the app. I subscribed through their web site and that’s where I usually use it. I like being able to find recipes I’ve saved on my phone but really was disappointed I couldn’t access product reviews & articles through the app. So this app is for viewing recipes. Only. I can launch a browser, go to the Cook’s site, log in w/my ID, and then do a search for what I want — but it is reasonable to expect to be able to access it through the app.
While I love having the recipes close at hand the search isn’t the greatest. If you don’t find the recipe you’re looking for and hit the back arrow you don’t always go back to your search and have to search all over again. I don’t think cataloguing your saved recipes is all that functional either. But my biggest complaint is that in some of the recipes it will refer to a diagram or picture “below” that is to follow the recipe and it’s nowhere to be found. There are some things I’d like to see and if you’re a visual person the recipe won’t be functional at all!!
Want access to membership App needs to be same as on line. ❤️The online. Hate this. Useless
Based on Cook’s ILLUSTRATED...would reasonably let you infer that there would be some, but nope, there aren’t. Seriously???
