I too am joining the exodus after finding out the app is now a monthly subscription. You can export your recipes without paying for the subscription by going to Pepperplate.com on your laptop or desktop computer. When you sign into your account it will give you a choice of subscriptions. Underneath those options is a small link to download your recipes as a zip file. Look for an app that will import recipes from a zip file in the App Store. Paprika, the one I switched to allows you to do this. You can also open the zip file on your computer and all of your recipes will be in the file as individual text documents. Good luck.
I don’t need to repeat what many others have, but wanted to add my voice to theirs. It’s an app company’s right to charge what they want, but whoever thought of this transition plan made a very poor decision. Paid one month ransom to get my recipes and currently in the process of moving to a new app.
Although there have been some bugs in the app periodically over the last 5 years, I have generally been very happy with it. It allows me to keep all my recipes in the same place and easily add recipe items to a shopping list, which my husband can then use to grocery shop with on the PP app on his phone. Uploading recipes is easy as is entering them manually. I use the recipe planner weekly and it's extremely useful and keeps me organized. I truly don't mind paying for a subscription to pepperplate-it's a value I'm willing to pay for.
I used Pepperplate for years. Then the subscription model happened. $33 per year for a recipe app??? I don't think so. Fortunately, I was able to download my recipes by logging into my account from a web browser. It came up with a subscription link but below that was a link to "Export my Recipes" which downloaded a zip file to my computer with all my recipes. Whew. I will be using Paprika on my new iPad. $5 one time is reasonable even if I have to re-enter my recipes.
Don’t. Just... no. Use RecipeSage or Paprika instead. I would recommend RecipeSage, it’s donation based, and doesn’t require a subscription. Plus the developer of it actually talks to the community on Reddit so they can make their app more user friendly. They also have an option to import your recipes from PepperPlate.
The developers left this product for dead and haven’t innovated in years. Out of nowhere they setup a mandatory subscription to see my recipes. Thanks for taking my data for hostage. Enjoy your $3 I had to pay to download all my data. It will be your last while I move to better platform.
The app blocked the access without offering me any option to recover password, or anything else. Not recommended.
THIS IS THE MOST IMPOSSIBLE APP I HAVE EVER SEEN. YOU DOWNLOAD THE APP AND THEN OPEN IT. IT ASKS FOR YOUR PASSWORD AND HAS NOWHERE FOR YOU TO SIGN UP FOR GETTING A PASSWORD. I THEN WENT TO APP SUPPORT IN THE APP STORE. THEY HAVE A PART THERE TO SIGN UP FOR THE PASSWORD. UNFORTUNATELY IT TAKES YOUR NAME AND EMAIL ADDRESS AND PASSWORD AND LETS YOU JOIN BUT YOU OPEN THE APP AND IT WILL NOT LET YOU SIGN IN. I HAVE ALREADY DELETED THIS IDIOTIC APP.
I have used this app for years to hold my recipes. I liked how easy it is to use. I would gladly have paid .99 a month to store my recipes. I don’t use and wouldn’t have used any of the other offered services. Offering an upgraded subscription would have been a good option. Companies like Apple and LastPass offer .99 per month for storage. These companies give at least a 30 day notice before changing things, but I received no notification email! Pepper plate is taking advantage of the pandemic to price gouge people. $33 per year is not reasonable for something I don’t use every day. I need to use my financial resources elsewhere. I am upset that MY PERSONAL recipes are being held hostage. Considering this, Now I have to pay for the subscription to retrieve my recipes. Then we are done! I will not use an app made by an unethical company. I hope the fleas of 1000 camels infest their armpits!
I used this app for a few years and loved it. Now with a subscription fee I no longer have access to my own recipes that I’ve added over the years. I would like to retrieve my recipes and delete this app. DO NOT GET THIS APP. SO NOT WORTH IT!!
