This is bay far the best feature of the app.
I usually don’t rate stuff but this app is worthy to be reviewed! Life changing
This app is exactly what I needed. I can plan out my meal and the best part is it does the grocery list for me. I’ve saved so much money!!
I’ve been using this off and on for a while now and I really like it. I sync across devices, the shopping list is great and when you grab something and check it off the list, it drops to the bottom so you can see what is remaining. Also the import recipe feature is amazing. One improvement would to see a list of ingredients and allow you to update / merge. I find that when I enter or import things there is duplication and I would like to standardize.
I dreaded dinner time for years and a lot of times avoided it altogether because I had so little imagination for planning meals. And when I thought of something, I wouldn’t have all the ingredients. Now I load and categorize my own recipes as well as imported ones, pull together meals by using those categories, add the ingredients to the grocery list and and follow my meal plan. At the touch of a button, I can view the whole week and no more thinking about it. Love it.
I like that you have control to add recipes.
This app requires too much work to maintain it. The app would benefit by allowing the user to be able to take a photo of recipes instead of having to type in the instructions or copy/paste from a website. On the other hand, it does not allow copy/paste from a website for a sample photo of the recipe, you either have to take a photo of your recipe and upload, too much work. You can import recipes, but it’s not user friendly.
This is brilliant. The very best menu and grocery app I’ve ever come across.
My family and I have been using this app for several months now. It’s a great resource for busy families. It has taken some time to set up and we are regularly updating the recipe section. Now that we have it set-up, even without using the pantry feature the app has helped us stay on budget. My husband and I work opposite schedules - this app allows us to stay on the same page with what’s for dinner.
I have used this app for years, but it has improved. I bought a subscription to an online “meal” group who uses the same recipes. Importing recipes has improved since I first started.
