App not as friendly as the computer

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.
By C Gromer

Good features, but not good sync

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.

Bad interface

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.

Refresh Bugs

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.

Email not found

So I bought and paid for the whole 30 plan on this app. Received email confirming my payment. Tried to log in, and it’s telling me my email is not found, even though it populated when I went to sign in. I can’t find any information on how to talk to someone about this, since now I’ve wasted more than a day of my time. Super frustrating.

iPhone app messed up my online plan

I set everything up online using the website, including types of food I wanted to exclude. Had a great meal plan, then I logged in using the app and it made me go through the entire set up process again and changed my entire meal plan. That was pretty frustrating. The service itself is great, though.

Helps a lot when trying to eat three meals a day

I have trouble eating all three main meals of the day and with an active lifestyle, Ive run into trouble. RealPlans has helped me plan my meals beforehand to fit eating into my schedule again.
By Stirthepot

No free trial

This app is an absolute joke. I tried to get the 14 day free trial and it literally just goes strait to the payment page. Now I’m trying to delete my payment info and I’m unable to because the app requires at least one payment be made. What a dumpster fire.
By Smgrein

Cannot login

My payment on the app did not somehow get to real plans and now I was told to purchase the plan again and iTunes should not charge me? If your app can’t take payments from Apple properly why offer it? What a rip off!
