  • Was great, can be again!

    Really hope this is still an “active” app. The developer has not updated for over a year. Would love iPhone X support and fixes for import and copy. Took the time to add all my family recipes to these, really hope it doesn’t just fade away or become completely inoperable.
  • Unusable

    By KaushalK
    Seriously don’t waste time or money on this app. No update has been provided in 3 years. There is no support whatsoever. App barely works. No syncing or back option. If you lose a recipe, you have lost it for good. Good luck in recreating again. App should be taken down from App Store.
  • Lost all my own recipes!

    By Rdlsgrl
    I lost all my own recipes on this app. When I try to contact them it says their site is unavailable! So frustrating, I had been having trouble with the keyboard not typing the info I was inputting, so I tried to reload it and lost everything. When I reloaded it now I cannot transfer recipes, nothing works right! Help!
  • Lost years of recipes...

    By Starbucks4
    I pretty much depend on this app for meal planning every week. It became increasingly buggy, but I still had all of my recipes, so I really didn’t mind. I recently upgraded phones and YEARS of recipes, even family recipes, are GONE. I am livid. Unless you want to accumulate years of awesome recipes only to have them disappear with no possible way of retrieving them and absolutely no developer support, I suggest not even bothering with this app.
  • Don’t buy this app

    By Shetland Shepherdess
    I have had this app for years. I continue to lose all of my recipes. I have retyped some recipes five times. I give up. I’m going to get another app.
  • Needs Fixing-PLEASE - 1/2 ⭐️Rating Honestly

    By kaf1227
    ⚠️Don’t waste your time on this until it’s fixed! I loved this app when I first downloaded it several years ago and happily rated it 5 ⭐️'s. Now, unfortunately, you cannot CONTACT the developer via their link. I’ve made plenty of “Bug Reports” but it’s obvious that’s now a waste of time. The IMPORT feature and the COPY feature are not working well at all. The Import I've always found temperamental but the Copy feature at least allowed me to capture the recipe. Now, can’t do that at all :( When copying, via the Add(+)/Search Recipe feature, a red check appears denoting that the Ingredients, Directions, etc have been copied to your recipe, only to find once this tedious step by step process has been completed the recipe you thought was saved is not there at all-frustrating and a waste of time. It’s just beyond frustrating now as don’t know what to do? Do I now switch APPS and retype all the recipes already saved on this APP? Kathleen, fix, this APP please. I have too many recipes in my Recipe Box to do this all over again. This was a really great APP when it worked. Would love to have it functional again-VERY VERY SOON.
  • What happened?

    By JudiJano
    Used to love this app but can't use it now. Pages freeze up every time. Then I have to quit the app and start over to get it to work until it freezes again. No recent updates to address the problem. Doesn't sync with my iPhone either. And the new format doesn't show the photo or servings once you actually get to the recipe. Is anyone listening?? Doesn't seem so!!
  • Excellent !!!

    Great Recipe File
  • When you get it to work it's great....

    By Doodlebug965
    Very rarely works even with major websites. I have had this app for years on several devices. The import function never works and I can't even select and enter most of the time. I have an iPhone 7 so it is not my phone. I gave it two stars because on the rare occasion it is functional it is great. However not being able to save recipes between both my phone and iPad is another draw back. Needs a lot of work.
  • Love this App

    By Odolocks
    Great app for recipe's. I am always putting in recipe's from foodie magazines in it. The wife and I try to cook something new once a month. I would if given 5 stars but the sync between devices is hit or miss. May have to try 5 or 6 times before it works. Also it would be nice to have the shopping list button on the ingredient page.
