MasterCook 2020

I reviewed this app a year ago and only gave it one star because the app could not be used in Landscape mode. Shortly after my review this issue was fixed along with some syncing issues so it deserves a new review. I love MasterCook for PCs and have been using it since since the first version decades ago. Adding the app and the ability to sync across all devices is priceless - no more printing out recipes every day. Now if only you could fix the ingredient bugs. For some reason after the last upgrade most of the ingredients on my recipes are no longer recognized when I try to look at the nutritional information. In order to fix this I need to delete the ingredient from the recipe and then reenter it. I have over 1000 recipes to fix so I hope this bug will be fixed. It’s the only reason I can’t give five stars.

This app is terrible. I try to view a recipe and the app will randomly close. It may or may not import a recipe from a website and if it does, it may or may not be formatted correctly. So, I go in to reformat the recipe. The edit feature does not work properly but I do manage to get the ingredients looking somewhat correct. I go to save it, and “oops, something went wrong”. My edits cannot be saved. I pay for this app and it totally is a disappointment!!

Edit fails with ‘Oops something went wrong’

During edit of recipe using iPad Pro, cannot move from screen 2 to 3. Get above message and cannot complete the edit. Only option that works is to not save changes made.

What a waste

Can’t even register because you can’t see the font in the fields you are trying to populate. Then one field gives no direction and you can’t pass it because all fields must be filled in. This is a joke right? A successful version on a PC but can’t manage a semi decent app? Skip this and save the frustration. HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT

MasterCook 2020 and App

I have been a MasterCook user for a couple of years with MC 15 and recently moved to MC 2020. What a love/hate relationship. Love the PC App (Win 10). It is great for importing off Web and I have gotten very good at managing my recipes and cookbooks. It also syncs well down to my iOS devices. Hate the IOS app. Can’t change white fonts on white background for lists. (They are more visible with the new app vs invisible for older app). Online lists are black fonts. You cannot sync from IOS devices to online, you had better add your recipes on the PC and sync down. iPad users cannot use landscape, same app for iPhone and iPad. That was really not acceptable on MC 15, but a brand new app 20 years into the 21st Century...NOT. 4.5 stars for MasterCook 2020 PC/Online. 2 Stars for disappointing app.

As of 07/28/2020, cannot upload recipes!

The past two days I’ve been trying to save a few web recipes. None of them appear in my MasterCook. I ended up deleting the app from my iPhone, reinstalling, and retrying to save the recipes, to no avail. Please help!

Search button?

What happened to the search button to allow you to search for recipes across cookbooks? Am I overlooking something?

Amazing Supporr

I had a corrupted file in my program and I wrote an email to Mastercook support. Pam from support emailed me right away with detailed instructions of uninstalling and files to check and reload and syncing information...she stayed right with me right to the end which made me so grateful for her help. My Mastercook program is up and running perfectly...all my cookbooks and recipes safely stored inside. Bravo Pam and Mastercook support team for a job well done!

Do not upgrade to this version

Have been a user for years. Upgraded last week, now app will not open. I can’t go back to older version. I cannot access

Great program!

I have had MasterCook for years and LOVE it! I am not computer savvy but this does all the work. It is easy to add a recipe from Facebook, etc. This is the best cooking app ever! Support is easily available and very knowledgeable with quick responses to your questions.
