Always a pricing mystery

Sometimes the in-app purchases have no relationship to what's going on in the app, sometimes it's only some that don't. This has a straight forward month or year's change but then what are the credits? All I can figure is that some of us see through the broken matrix and use the credits to seal things. 😛 I'll just leave it as is when it breaks. Why not?

Great so far!

Just started using the app, it’s great that I can use leftovers and find new recipes for them easily. Even creating grocery lists is super easy. I just wish there were more diet choices because there is no “flexitarian” diet included.. Also it doesn’t make sense that you can’t add any recipes to the meal plan unless you subscribe for pro.. There should be a chance to test this with 3 recipes at least so one can try the app for a while.

Not liking the upgraded app

I’m still a fan of the original app. Once they upgraded it I find the meal planning section to be clunky. I liked the meal planning when it was shown with a calendar view. Also once you click on a meal for a specific day, the instructions won’t open to full screen on my iPad which is extremely frustrating. It seems like whoever designed the app does not cook using it. When I’m cooking I want to be able to quickly go into my meal plan, click on the recipe and have it open to a full screen so I can read it. In addition I cannot delete ingredients from a recipe before sending them over to my shopping list. If I have the ingredient already at home I don’t want it on the shopping list. The shopping list has glitches, marking things off when they should remain on my list(super frustrating). Pictures don’t always upload when recipes are added. I can no longer import recipes from the Food Network, where I pull the majority of my new recipes and so I’m starting to migrate my recipes over to the Food Network app. For these reasons I’m still using the old app. I would hate to move to a new cooking app since I’m invested in this one already but it’s been over year since my last post and no changes have been made. You’ve removed my recipes from the old app so I’m forced to use this new one that I truly hate.

A little ackward

The old version is a bit less user friendly, although it seems to be morphing. I kept both on my tablet for ages!

Not free

To use as a meal planner you must pay for subscription. Not what I am looking for.

Used to love, but now it’s totally broken

I’ve used this app for many many years and I’ve always loved it. Lately it’s turned into the absolute worst app I have ever used. When I’m at the grocery try store I want to be quick and efficient, but whenever I open this app sometimes the items I have added are already marked off when I haven’t even gotten them - making it incredibly confusing. Even after closing and reopening the app several times it seems to fix it at first but then it immediately breaks. I can’t help but wonder if all the ads are making it broken or if they want you to upgrade on purpose?

Grocery List

Started added my groceries to my list to go shopping this morning and they are already crossed out. How am I supposed to know what I purchased and didn’t purchase if items are already crossed out?? Have not had this problem before. I have loved this app for years!!!
