  • Love it - but needs menu plan option

    By Gillimay
    I have had this app for years and paid much more than what it is now. I love it but find myself searching for a menu planner and several offer what this app does + planner but with so many recipes I haven't jumped ship ...yet. I write my weekly plan on paper so this option would make this app perfect, especially if allows you to add non-recipe items and food to complete menu for the week. Providing more customization for the grocery list would also allow me to delete my grocery IQ app (another fave).
  • No longer imports

    By JuziTunes
    I have loved this app for a few years, but now it will no longer import recipes from the internet (custom or otherwise). It seems this app is dead in the water and I'm going to look elsewhere. It's a shame, because it's a great app (5stars) when functioning.
  • Excellent Support

    By Carditashell
    I have had this app for years and live it! From time to time I have had questions and the support has been prompt, and efficient, and in terms I can understand!! I literally refer to or use this app everyday!
  • iPhone 0 stars

    This was a favorite app of mine but I can no longer add recipes using my iPhone. Works fine on my iPad though. Wish they'd fix the iPhone issue. Would give 5 stars if it worked.
  • Excellent App! Deserves 10 stars,

    By SoCal Lady
    UPDATE - 2017. Still the best recipe app out there. Still loving it and after all this time, it is still my go to app. UPDATE - I am still loving this app! It is my 'go to' for all my recipes. I had one suggestion. I wish I could keep small cooking videos in there as well. This is STILL the best recipe app in the App Store bar none and it still deserves 10 stars! I have been using My Recipe Book ever since it debuted in the App Store and I have never found a better one. I can add any recipe I find on the web by using the custom import, I can use the cooking sites suggested in the app to find recipes and I can add my own. I can even use my own pictures. All of this is accomplished so easy that I enjoy using it. You can add your own categories and delete the ones you don't use. There are so many options that organizing your recipes is a breeze. Simply put, I LOVE this app. There's nothing else like it.
  • Love this App!

    By Sunkistanngel
    Great app, I love it!! I do hope updates will be continue by its support team. One suggestion I would love to see is a way to add additional categories or tag recipes for things like Paleo, Whole30, specific holidays; or even allow us to customize our own categories. I would also like to see them add weekly meal planning features to create meal planning using my recipes that I've saved. My app works great with no problems noted. It loads recipes from other sites and syncs with my other electronic devices for recipes, grocery lists, etc. I can even share recipes with my friends. It will let me import recipes they share as well. When saving recipes from on line recipe sites, I have to tap "importing" if it seems to be taking an extended time to import. It will tell me it's still "importing" or immediately finish importing without a problem. Great app! Please do continue to update and support this app!
  • This app is still crap

    By Badams1897
    I have had this app for 5 years the fully paid version. The issues are its slow, the easy import recipe function is terrible and doesn't work any longer. When you search for a recipe via their search it doesn't bring up the right recipes on the actual website. Food network example search Hollandaise sauce it brings up meatloaf. If you click the search bar on the site and search you find the recipe. It refuses to import it in. As a long time user this app frustrates me.
  • No need for any more cookbooks

    By srimavster
    Update Feb 2017: this app was so amazing when it came out. I don't think it has been updated for a very long time. The import function is no longer working. I have lost my recipes when I updated my iPad. I am so sad because this was an amazing app. After one month of using this, I have put my favorite recipes from all over and now have gotten rid of all my old recipe books and have de cluttered my kitchen. What a lifesaver.
  • Not importing

    By 9876annoyed
    I can no longer import from My Recipes. There needs to be an update to correct this or let us know if that web site is no longer supported so we can move on
  • Frustrated!

    By MN Boss
    Exactly what I want, but it doesn't work on my iPad Air 2! Works fine on my iPhone, but it won't allow me to copy/paste ingredient lists on the iPad. It requires that I enter each item's measurement and name. Incredibly time-consuming. (When I click on INGREDIENTS, detailed measurement blanks appear. No blank page to paste onto.) Nothing in the instructions helps. ๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜•
