  • Used to be perfect

    By Jdbeichsbsb
    I hate it when a developer upgrades an app and makes it more difficult to use. Pretty much defeats the purpose of an upgrade. You used to be able to go into your grocery list and tap on the microphone and say an item and hit return and hit the microphone again and keep repeating the process to add items. But now in the latest version, the keyboard disappears so you can’t hit return. Instead you have to tap on the keyboard icon to get the keyboard back which adds another step to the process. Please put this back the way it was.
  • Ridiculous to not be universal at $5

    By odin1eye
    It’s my own fault for not paying attention, but paying $5 for an app and then needing to buy it again at full price for my iPad is usurious. I’ll be deleting and finding something perhaps inferior but without the need to purchase twice.
  • I've been using Paprika for about 4 years!

    While most people use this as a recipe manager for cooking, I simply built out my categories for spirits and drink modifiers. Our bar program has been running on Paprika ever since I picked up the app. Downloading the app and sharing our recipe book is the final step of our training process. Thanks y'all!
  • Well worth the money

    By Donna37754321
    I've had this app for a long time, through many different phones. It has remained a stable reliable recipe manager all that time. Recipe capture from the web has continued to improve. I haven't run into a recipe in awhile that it couldn't capture. It's awesome at scaling recipes, and making a shopping list for ingredients. It's absolutely perfect and well worth the money.
  • Great App & Suggestiond

    By Old Sonos Guy
    We use Paprika daily and love it. One of the keys to using the app is to setup your category and sub categories to keep things organized. It is very easy to modify the categories without actually editing the recipe. So we keep a folder/category for this week's meals and add the recipes to that folder for easy access. After preparing the meal we simply remove the recipe from that category while keeping it whatever other category it is in. We have categories for each type of meat, meals ( i.e. Breakfast), courses, ethnic, etc. Regarding the search capability that one reviewer complained about - yes you need to spell correctly. Hard to have Google like AI in a $2 app. The reviewer was incorrect when they said you can only search by Title. You can search Title, Ingredient or Source and if you have categorized well you can look through a category. Things we love: ability to search the web for recipes and save them in the app, ability to make notes, scale the recipe up and down, ability to share recipes with friend via text or email (if they have the app they can simply save the recipe in the app, if not they can print it). We love that when you are using the app on a device it overrides the screen saver function so the recipe stays open. The grocery list is ok. It adds all of the ingredients from a recipe which requires substantial editing. We do not use the calendar function. Suggestions for the developer. It would be helpful if there were tabs in order to have several recipes open at once. Then the scale function could reset to 1x when you close the recipe. It would be helpful to be able to reorder/edit the default categories. I do not need All Recipes at the top. Top Rated and Favorites seems somewhat redundant. The Grocery List should override the screen saver too. Overall a great app and our most frequently used one. We have it on all of our devices so we can prepare different recipes at the same time.
  • Happy Long Time User

    I have been using Paprika for managing my recipes for probably 7 years now and I just wanted to say thank you for keeping it up to date!!
  • Awesome Timesaver

    By Merely Martha
    I am crazy about this app! I had recipes all over the place and it drove this neat freak nuts! I love that I'm able to put any recipe on this app and find it easily! Suggested Updates • Add categories to the main sorting menu. • Enable texting of grocery list. Thanks for making it so easy to find my favorite dishes in a flash!
  • Can't scale amounts in the Instructions

    By Fwilger
    I would give this 5 stars, but when you scale, it only scales the ingredients. Example : Say recipe calls for 1 cup wine 3 cup stock , and instructions say to reduce to 1/3 cup. Ok fine. Scale the recipe 1 1/2x but it will STILL say to reduce to 1/3 cup when the now the 1 1/2 scaled liquid is 6 cups total. The scaled reduction amount should in fact be 1 cup not 1/3. The scaling feature does transfer over to the instructions. That being said, it still is one of the best cloud recipe managers out there. I recommend it.
  • 5+ Star app except...

    By Redwoodgirl3
    Intuitive. User friendly. My main app for storing and using recipes. Would LOVE if you would make it so that for the recipe you could add more than one picture. I would like the option to add a new picture and notes each time I make something so I can go through them. Because I make tweaks along the way, having a picture and a note for each time I made a specific recipe would be a great help. Thank you!
  • Absolutely love it!!

    By el3asfourah
    From loading the recipes to adding the ingredients to a shopping list, this app is absolutely amazing. It's easy to use and straight forward. It's an excellent way to organize all your recipes (especially the ones you find on websites and blogs) in one place with easy access. When using the app to cook, it stays on with the screen unlocked for a long time which makes it much easier! It is worth every penny and I strongly recommend it!
