I’ve been using MealBoard on my iPad mini for saving recipes, planning meals, and creating meal plan templates for 4 years. I love that I can search for recipes on my favorite food blogs and download them right into the app. My kids & spouse can easily navigate the meal plans and recipes to help out with the cooking. Now that my spouse and I both have iPhones we are planning to make good use of the shopping and pantry functions. Great app! Would highly recommend.
Customer service is excellent. I had an issue with the latest update and they were great in solving it. I love this app. I don't have to make a grocery list - it's made for me after I enter my meal plan. I love that it is sorted by aisle and store, and I don't overlook items on my list because I can check them off and delete them. And the recipes are so easy to import. I’ve been using it for years and would be lost in the kitchen and at the grocery without it.
This app is my family life saver! We love it. We have imported all of our favorite recipes very easily. We have stocked our “pantry” to help us keep track of what we have and what we actually need. I love that I can sync our meals to our iCal. A few areas to improve: we love the notification part of the recipes but I wish it were more sophisticated not just day of or day before and allow for more than one notification per recipe! For example, get the meat out of the freezer 2 days before. Brine the meat day before etc. I also wish the grocery list would integrate into our favorite shopping apps (Amazon, sams club, Walmart) this would be next level amazing! Please keep updating this app and keeping it relevant!
I’m such a fan of this app and have used it for years to plan meals for the week, and make my grocery list. The newest update makes it even better! I previously had to type in every ingredient (since I’m using Mealboard to basically catalogue recipes in my cookbook collection) - with the scanning/text recognition feature I can easily snap a pic of the cookbook text and it does a great job of importing! Five stars, two thumbs up, etc. Love it!
Love what I can do with it, and transferring all my recipes to it. Wish I could import ingredients lists from old recipes more easily than one line at a time. Using app on iPhone and iPad can be a problem - when you sync, sometimes your meals double up on the phone and Calendar.
When you use the recipe import function (from a recipe site) MealBoard easily and accurately brings in the ingredients to MealBoards ingredients section ‘no copying and pasting’ it the allows you to select which ‘store’s shopping list’ you want to add the ingredients to in you Don't’ have it at home in your Panty. MealBoard also easily and accurately pulls in the steps to the recipe so you have everything together. You can also enter prep time and edit it ( like when making my banana cream pie and had a 4 hour refrigerator time I found after starting. I edited that prep time and made a big note’ lol Finally when you pick a recipe you put the day and meal you want and it will add it to your grocery list if you want it to. Sorry to go on so long as but I am a 62 yo guy and I need this as easy as possible, and it is. I only wish it would easily my export grocery store list into Amazon Fresh and Walmart Hope this helps.

I’ve got a lot of apps on my phone and iPad, but MealBoard is my favorite. It’s always been 5-Stars for me, it the added feature of using your camera to capture text for a recipe is a game changer! Highly recommend if you’re looking for a tool that keeps lol your recipes in one place, assist with meal planning, and making shopping lists.
I am blown away by the usefulness of this app and it’s importing capability. I’m sure a lot of work went into make such an excellent tool. Deserves a lifetime of 5 stars. This is the ultimate meal planning and recipe saving app especially with recent updates. Can also be tweaked to meet individual preferences and needs. Responsive support too!
Great. Perfect for our family. Makes meal planning a cinch!
Good meals recipe and meals planner app! Also a good recipes shopping list layout Area! Good overall app!
