Not fixing problems

This app is fabulous...or at least it WAS. The pro version is not supposed to have ads. They have added ads to the pro version. These ads are not simply annoying, but they are affecting my use of the grocery list, I cannot make changes to the item on the bottom of my list (which is usually the one I need to change the category of). PLEASE FIX THIS, remove all advertising from the pro version!

So Many Ads!!

You iPhone app has so many ads it is virtually impossible to read the recipes. What ever you changed, please change it back. There are too many cooking apps to use to waste time on this one.

First Recipe “Clipped” Didn’t Even Save Ingredients Correctly

I just tried saving my very first recipe to this app from a website, only to find that it didn’t copy the complete ingredients. I clicked on edit recipe under more options to fix the ingredients, only to find I need to pay for that service. I saw this app recommended on a Best Recipe Storage Apps article. I’m super disappointed that this is considered one of the best. It does not give me a lot of hope for the other apps recommended. On the other hand... Developers, Head’s up that there’s a huge opportunity in this space if you can simply get the ingredients of a recipe right! Or even just allowed people to correct any mistakes.

Not bad...

Not a bad app, but it’s really glitchy. It doesn’t sync very well with the website, and the photos don’t seem to appear, even when it says they have been accepted. Force closing the app does not help either. You can’t edit directly in the app, it takes you to the site and then syncs down. Very clumsy. It’s good as there doesn’t seem to be a hard limit on number of recipes. However it seems like more of a community recipe sharing site (which bis great if that’s what you’re looking for!) rather than a personal recipe box. Overall good, but app needs work.

Just downloaded

I’m downloading a bunch of meal planning apps and comparing them. This one is in my top 3 out of 15 so far and that’s great . Will update if I choose this one. It has great recipes and simple features. I wish there were some updates for meal planning and the grocery list section though.

I also tried to like...

I cook every day and I needed a place to keep my recipes. I managed to link a total of 4 recipes on this app. All others were not saved for some reason, even after I tried several time. Will delete.

Very frustrating

This app is so buggy and their customer support is non-existent, even if you are a paying customer. Canceling my subscription.

Forced into upgrade

Key pad kept closing automatically upon trying to manually type in my recipe, which eventually caused me to hit submit recipe button. That’s fine, but app would not let me go back and edit without upgrading. That’s devious!

Don't waste your time

I was stoked about this app. And I wanted to love it. Online help doesn't match current app version. Support is unhelpful. So many recipes cannot be uploaded because their list of supported sites isn't very long. Uploaded my own recipe and tried to edit it and it won't save my edits. Visit website for help, doesn't match current app version. Contact them, they're useless. It's a vicious cycle.

Grocery list so glitchy!

I love this app and have been raving about it to people for a while now, but the grocery list has become so glitchy and keeps crossing things off before I’ve picked them up. Very frustrating when I try to make my list ahead of time and end up forgetting things at the store because Big Oven marks them as though I’d picked them up already. It’s leading me to want to switch over after being loyal to big oven for 2 years or so.
