  • BUY IT

    I had very high expectations for this app and it exceeded them. My favorite part is the Surprise Me button, which randomly selects a recipe for you.
  • Almost perfect

    By sudstide
    First thing is first, this app is excellent. Low one time payment, no ads, no extra surprises. You get more than you pay for in my opinion, as a notebook and pen would be approximately the same price and have only an inkling of this app’s capability. I have found importing recipes from online sources to be very easy, as is creating your own recipes manually. I have not used the other methods yet. One of the main reasons I chose this app was the ability to have an integrated meal planner and grocery list to save time and money at the store. This is where I believe this app can be improved. If you have a habitual routine for meals or a meal plan, this app is tedious to plan for the coming week. I like to enjoy a smoothie everyday for breakfast, and adding the recipe to each morning of each coming week is an annoying process. I suggest a simple added feature to fix this: a repeat function when adding a meal to any given day. What I believe would be a more difficult solution for the developers, but better for users like myself, would be a weekly meal plan instead of a calendar. This simple Sun thru Sat (with no associated date) setup could easily list your meals and would automatically remain unchanged from week to week, which would reduce the amount of time users would need to spend editing a new weekly plan. And if some users are on a strict meal plan, they would never have to update a weekly plan after a one time set up. I would also like to add that users creating a variety of meals would still spend the same amount of time editing their meal plan for the coming week, so there is no disadvantage to this new setup. This is just my personal suggestion on how to improve this app, I would be happy to correspond with the developers if they find this an interesting feature. Again, as is, this is a fantastic app and I highly recommend it.
  • Buggy

    By yaeltamari
    It’s a great idea but the execution is Buggy. Recipe import from URL doesn’t work well. The import only works for the first 2-4 items /lines and then you have to do all the work manually. They miss finding the description, more than 2 ingredients etc. The Zest app did this much better.
  • Love this app

    By Cooking10
    I’ve been cooking for more than 50 years and have a cookbook collection that covers 25’ of shelving. I love to cook and was thrilled when my daughter suggested Cookbook it’s an incredible app. So far Ive added over a 1000+ recipes to the app great for shopping and wonderful to access the recipes without going through 20-30 cookbooks to find them!
  • Overall really like it!

    By KimbPW
    Overall I really like the app and I have recommended it to others. Its easy, love the import and tag options and I am just getting into the meal planning. My only issues are for some recipes I cannot get the ingredients to stay in cups and it switches it to oz or another measurement. I have tried different things but doesnt help. This is only a few recipes this has been an issue with. The other issue is I wished I could backup on my computer instead of on phone. However, I did email it to myself so it does accomplish it. My complaints are more annoying then anything and overall I am very happy with the app!! I recommend giving it a try!
  • Great App

    By Wood441
    This app helps my wife keep up with her recipes across her devices and it works very good. The only down side to it is there is not an app for my Mac computer but you can still access it online.
  • Not ideal, but designed

    By anticipateu
    Slow to load, needs to reload after a moderate meal prep period of inactivity and occasionally crashes. The user interface is quite good and the app’s ability to obtain recipe details from a photo or url is amazing. If the loading and reloading were sped up, I would use this more often.
  • Not a good recipe app

    By RowTheHulk
    I just got this app, and I’m very disappointed. When you add a recipe, you take pictures and AI transfers it to the recipe format. It’s pretty good, but there are some things that you have to change. However, making these changes is near impossible. There’s no way to see where you’re typing or what letter you’re set to delete. That is, there’s no blue line to see where you are, and you can’t just click on a spot and start deleting from there. It just starts deleting from the end. I’m so frustrated. What a waste of money.
  • Wonderful way to organize!

    By 17431977
    This app is it truly fantastic. It’s super easy to add a recipe and organize them exactly the way you want them. I’ve had a couple issues and someone has responded incredibly fast and been super helpful. I can’t recommend it enough!
  • I don’t rate apps

    By KatArtTeacher
    But I love this one SO much, that I decided to rate it. MAN this does everything that it says it does, and even surprises me by doing it even better sometimes!!
