I have been using this app for years and I have hundreds of recipes in it. I have photos of my grandmother’s hand written cards, on-line recipes with notes of my own variations, photos of cookbook pages, and my own recipes typed in. Most of them have photos. It’s easy to add a bookmark to a recipe online and import it later. I love the link to go to original recipe site, since so many people put ads in the middle of the recipe to interfere with screen grabs. I run it on my phone (for shopping) and my iPad (for cooking). I share recipes with my sister who also loves this app. I recently upgraded my phone and the app wasn’t downloading the recipes from iCloud correctly. It has been a problem for a while, and I hadn’t prioritized fixing it. But this morning I needed a recipe and decided to fix it. The support materials didn’t apply, so I used the built-in email support. It’s a Sunday, so I didn’t expect to hear anything for a few days. I was so surprised to get a step-by-step email addressing my exact problem within 3 hours. On a Sunday. Great product and great customer support.
I find this the best recipe app I have tried. I didn’t pay for it several years ago. I don’t know if they are charging for it now. I like that you can enter a recipe so easily. I had trouble with importing a recipe from online so now I just do a screenshot and save it to my photos, then enter the recipe that way. I create a different screen for ingredients and one for directions. Anyway, I love this app and use it all the time
I’ve been using this app for a few years now. If I made my own, it would be almost like this. Love it and highly recommend it. I have my own template I use when writing my recipes and it works great with this app. I have thousands of recipes on it and it works like a charm. Highly recommend it not only to my cooking class students but to everyone who loves to cook.
I have saved 2,000 + recipes and eliminated a bookcase. I like being able to create categories and arrange them as I like. Adding notes to tweak a recipe is essential too. Great app.
I just started using this App and am having a good time organizing all the recipes that I've had in my screenshots. I know it will be so helpful! Been using it several years now. Still love that I can photograph family recipe cards to preserve the handwritten favorites. Also I photograph recipes from magazines.
I love this app. Makes storing recipes so easy. My recipes are always with me and if I’m out shopping I just pull it up to find ingredients I need or look to see what’s for dinner❤️❤️
*EDIT* - I have been meaning to update this review for a while. The developer reached out right after my previous review and mentioned a possible software update issue—which it was. I have full functionality again. This is a great app. I do wish that it worked better with some of the bigger recipe sites like Bon Apetit, but I suspect the issue is more of BA throwing ads and black bars into text as a way to make this app more difficult to employ than it is the functionality of the app itself. Thanks to the developers for contacting me so quickly with troubleshooting. ******* I used to like this app. It was functional an easy to use and categorize. But now the “capture” option only screenshots a tiny portion of the recipe instead of allowing me to choose from the beginning of the page or from my selected area of the screen, as it formerly did. This is an absolute waste of time, trying to reference six or seven tiny screenshots as I cook. Now I have a collection of recipes I worked to put in this app that I have to now move over to another app because this app—unless this screenshot issue fixed soon—is utterly pointless to continue using to build my recipe collection.
I searched and searched for a simple recipe organizer since I am always searching through my photons to find my screenshot recipes. All the apps I downloaded were either too hard to navigate, too busy, only option was to manually enter recipe text or would only let you upload one picture for the recipe. This app was exactly what I was looking for!! I can upload the picture of the dish I’m looking for that I recognize from my photos, then I can upload as many pics as I need for the screenshot of ingredients and directions and I can even add my own notes. Totally worth the $3.00! Great customer service as well!!!
Love versatility in terms of getting recipes into this app. Also love the ability to save only what you want when inputting recipes (especially from websites). Definitely recommended!
Saves time- no more sifting through recipe papers- all in one convenient place- Easy to use
