  • Love this app!

    By montmeag
    I used a different app for years and was ok with it until they went to a yearly subscription. That’s a HUGE turn off for me. I found this one and have really enjoyed it since. The import process was so simple and fast. I love that I can just take a picture of a recipe, edit very little and it’s ready to go instead of typing out the entire recipe. Customizing the tags is also nice to have and easy to do. I have recently started using the meal planner function, which I have to say is WAY better than the last app I used so I never used it before now. It pops up a button on the bottom of the home page that says “dinner” and it takes you straight to the recipe for the day. Genius! The developers are responsive and open to feedback and suggestions for future updates, which is appreciated. I highly recommend this app!
  • They thought of everything!

    By Tarataaaaataaaaa
    It's quite amazing all the features packed in this app. Timers, checking off ingredients, scaling the recipe (e.g. make it for 2 when recipe was given for 1), and most importantly how you can import recipes from the web! That's the killer feature for me.
  • Great app👍🏽

    5 dollars were worth it.
  • New obsess-worthy cooking app

    By dvnlilly
    This has been my new go-to app bc I’ve been able to combine all my favorite recipes from my favorite cooking apps, magazines, websites, and my own sources.

    This app makes storing and finding recipes so convenient! I easily imported old family recipes, and magazine recipes. Also, instead of hundreds of bookmarked recipes on the internet, I imported those too. It’s simple to edit and add notes; it converts measurements instantly when you choose a different number of servings, so you don’t have to do a lot of math. You can share the recipes too. I use it every day.
  • Love it

    I love this app but it would be so much better if there was an option to bulk export in pdf instead of having to do it recipe by recipe.
  • Waste of Money

    By TP all the time
    Just spent 30 mins trying to upload one clipped recipe. Ridiculous use of time.
  • Love it!!

    By CaseymRN
    I was using another app that I loved but they started charging a reoccurring fee - what??? I don’t mind buying an app, but to pay a never ending monthly fee when I’m adding all the recipes, etc is a little much to me. I went searching for another app that I could use both on my phone and computer and this one fit the bill. I love how easily I can import recipes. I save tons of stuff on Pinterest and I can easily import them here. I’ve been using this for months and am extremely happy with it. There is also a meal planning feature which I wanted but haven’t used yet.
  • Awesome app

    By Lakshmi Sameera
    Overall the app is a joy too work with. I wanted an app that didn’t have a subscription model. I don’t understand why I have to pay a subscription when i’m doing all the work saving recipes. Very easy to import and add recipes. Look and feel are great. Great search function and organization using tags function. There are few glitches I hope will get corrected in upcoming updates. When using ocr function it is limited to ten pics for entire recipe. And if you upload a wrong pic it can not be deleted from the list of 10 pics. Having said this the ocr function is spot on 98% of the time. And it would be perfect if somehow they can automate nutrition info. But hey there is never an end to what we want. An awesome app.
  • My Go To Recipe Book

    By Azstrider
    I am converting all of my favorite recipes to this app. The various capture and input methods make this easy to build an integrated recipe book. It takes a bit of experimenting to learn the various capture methods but once you’ve got it you won’t forget as the app is self directing on how to capture and tune your recipes. Capture from your browser is very easy and my go to method if possible. The OCR method works well and is the way I captured many of my oldest printed recipes or from the recipe books that line my kitchen shelf. This app works and it gives me my recipes at my fingertips wherever I go and when I use it in the kitchen it does not switch off when I turn my back like other apps that I have used like to do. It sounds simple but this can be very irritating if your hands are knee deep in ingredients. Try it - you will like it.
