The worst recipes what a waste of money.
Unfortunately there were at least 2 meals I had to completely throw out because the recipes were so inaccurate. Also, when I went to cancel the subscription the cancel button was so far down the page, after a long list of unwanted ads. Then there was no confirmation it canceled. Stuck with another month paying for horrible recipes.
I downloaded for Whole30, and while it has been helpful, the recipe selection is very limited (and most are not appetizing to me), leaving me to import recipes from other websites. This import feature is VERY glitchy. The recipes don’t save, I get errors, etc and am wasting a lot of time trying to reimport. Also, I hate that there is no option to designate leftovers to a certain day/meal when entering your own recipes.
The plan cost which is not the biggest problem but the grocery list is crazy expensive. Meal plans don’t include consist meal types during the weeks so you’re spending a ton on food. The app help chat feature doesn’t work and I’ve cancelled this plan but it’s still trying to charge me and because the app cliches i can’t fix it.
Not user friendly. Not intuitive. Not for $13.99+ a month... Chat doesn’t work. Nutrition information not provided, apparently requires hunting down some macros tool which you won’t find...
Don’t use this app. Total rip off.
Love Real Plans, but the app has a long way to go to catch up to the computer version, especially for people who import recipes.
Decent app overall, but fails at being a robust multi-user or offline-first app. Good luck trying to use the shopping list feature with your partner, or in a store that squelches your cellular coverage. It’s fine superficially, but constant pull-to-refreshes that even then don’t consistently show your shopping list’s true state gets frustrating quite quickly. Also, this app follows the "beg for reviews" anti-pattern, so here we are. Friends don’t let friends’ apps block the world for this kind of thing.
The navigation on this app is not good. There is no way to easily go through and select what Diet to choose from, there are a few and what is good on one diet is not good on all. The menu selections are quite limited, and it tries to auto-populate a week at a time, without letting you select what to keep or what to remove. No iPadOS version (it is 2019 for cryin’ out loud!), way to expensive, and not intuitive at all.
I purchased the Whole 30 plan. When adding recipes, they don’t appear on the planning schedule. In order to make them appear, I have to scroll all the way to the top and pull down to refresh the app/data. That adds 10-20 seconds each time I add a recipe. Also, when using the shopping lists and indicating that I already have an ingredient, often times, after marking it, it will reappear at a later time as unmarked. Frustrating. These are very basic app/service refresh design issues that shouldn’t appear in a $30 purchase, $15/mos subscription.
