ATK seems to have more trouble with providing front-ends than any other content provider I’ve interacted with. Their content is top-notch but this app is actively painful. There’s more access to functionality by loading the site in Safari & since whenever I click on an email link it opens in Safari instead of the app, I’m not sure what value this app provides. I’m keeping it because it has nowhere to go but up, but then I’m a hopelessly glass-full person. Whoever ATK hired to build this app owes them a refund!
Why don’t the recipes actually save to my favorites when I hit the “Save” button??? This app is squirrelly. A plethora of recipes and info but good luck trying to save anything so you can easily find it again. Would be nice if the features actually worked.
I tried everything and this current version will NEVER let me access ANY recipes. Just take my advice and use their website. This app is completely useless in its current state. ATK please get your act together. I used this app religiously before this. Not happy
Downloaded and try to open app....nothing, just a blank screen....
America’s Test Kitchen has come a long way with their app. However, it has issues with the most basic functionality. Want to sort your search by popularity or by date published? The options are there, but it won’t change the sorting! You have to type slowly in the search box, seems to prioritize looking ahead instead of allowing you to type. There have been numerous times I’ll type in the search box and letters will be missing, typically at the end. The most recent update renders the entire app unusable. I open the app and it freezes. Where is the QA testing? Either the app isn’t tested thoroughly or it isn’t being tested at all.
Easy to use. Search is great.
Please fix the bugs that won’t let me favorite any recipes. Every time I select the bookmark icon on a recipe or article it goes black and then back to light again as though I didn’t do anything, and the item I tried to save never shows up in my favorites. Pretty frustrating when trying to plan ahead.
Just spent a bunch of money on this site only find out how broken this app is. Nearly every link in this site gives me the “white page of death”. Then a notice that “SOMETHING BAD HAPPENED”. Restart the app. I’ve been a subscriber to Cooks Illustrated for a few years and finally decided to indulge in the full experience. Wow! Really disappointing. Really frustrating. I guess I’ll just use the website instead of the iPad app. Please fix this
When I click on the Save button, nothing happens.
Great idea, but the app doesn’t work at all. I can see new recipes and reviews have been posted on the opening screen, but I get either an error message (“Oops, something bad happened.”) or the white screen-of-death if I click a link. I’m signed in and have a full membership. No issues if I go to the main website from a browser, but it would be nice to have easy access to bookmarked recipes on my phone.
