I have a busy life and a big family. I love to cook but hate grocery shopping. I love how I can generate a quick shopping list from my meal plan, store all my recipes, switch them out as the week gets crazy, and even store then download a whole month of meals.
Recipes from the web, Amazing. Great App!!!
I have had this app for years. It allows you to plan out what you want to eat for the week. You can take recipes from the internet, make changes if desired or put in your own recipes. Then you sync up the meals and it generates you a new organized shopping list. For example produce will be listed with other produce, frozen with other frozen items etc. I'm not really tech savvy, so if I figured it out I know you will too. Love this app
Started meal planning to save money and this app has made the process so easy. I'm also able to try new recipes easily with the import recipe part of the app. Been suggesting it to friends and family!
I've never used an app for meal planning. And I haven't really ever done a great job even without an app in the first place. So any help was really welcome. But I didn't anticipate how helpful this app would be, even with the bar set as low as I had it. I love that I can import recipes from internet sites, and love even more than I can edit them. The grocery list has been a life and time saver. It's genuinely easy to use, even more so once I got the handle on the features. I'm starting to use the panty now also. It's fantastic feature in poking around with new recipes I'd like to try but I'm not sitting in my kitchen. It's a little tedious to see multiple variations on things like salt or butter. I'd like to see a single place to consolidate those into one item, and backfill the recipes so they don't keep populating my shopping list with 8 different "butters". I can fix each one myself to make them use the "same" butter. But having a tool to make them one would be handier. All the way around, great product!!!
This has been the best experience ever! This is exactly what I was looking for. I appreciate that you just pay once. No subscription fee, no in-app purchases, this is simply great. I would love to get in touch with the developer.
Not just a simple menu planning app.
I have tried many apps, this one is hands down my favorite. It is easy to use and so quick for me to get started. I imported a few recipes and add from everywhere easily on the mobile version. The features that I love the most are the ability to import from the web, scale recipes, and manage my weekly meal plan. But, I love them because they are intuitive and easy to use. I have convinced several of my working mother friends to get it and they all raved about it. I was having problems with the import recipe feature and emailed the developer. He responded right away and fix the problem the same day. I have never had that experience with any of my other apps! What amazing customer service!
Who knew an app could be this amazing. The only con is you can transfer over a weeks worth of meals to another week. But really how often do you need to do that. This app is phenomenal it does everything it says it can. Which feels my heart with joy no more stressing about groceries it's a one stop app for all things food. I couldn't be happier.
Excellent app. It does 99% of the tasks I want in a shopping app. I was using another one and have tossed it. The only thing I can think of is the lack of a detailed tutorial. I'm learning by trial and error. LOVE it. UPDATE OF ORIGINAL REVIEW: 4/22/17 Obviously the developers thought of a lot of things I didn't and have improved it greatly. Two additional things I would like: First let me print or display a single list with multiple stores. This would allow me to assign particular items to the only store that carries it and still only have one list on shopping day. Second let me prepare a list of all coupon items with expiration dates. Currently I miss many savings opportunities Still a excellent app. Absolutely the best of the several I've tried
I was so excited to find this app and immediately loved it. I told all my friends and family about it so we could all share recipes. However, after about a week the app stopped working properly - my recipes won't email out and recipes that are emailed to me won't add to the app. I've emailed customer service twice about the issue but haven't received a response. Disappointed with the experience.
Seems like there's room for improvement in auto-consolidating ingredients (pepper, fresh ground pepper, black pepper, etc), but I'm loving the ingredients-to-shopping list function, and auto-updating the pantry (inventory). Good stuff!
I really like this app, it's the one meal planning app/program I will actually use. It's simple and easy to learn, and it covers all the functionality I really need (import recipes, create shopping lists, inventory pantry) without creating needless complications or steps. Here's what I think would make it better: I would really like the ability to export or sync the recipes into MyFitnessPal, which I use to track nutrition and calories. Automatic cloud sync across devices -- if it is supposed to be doing that, it doesn't, I have to manually sync. Auto update/creation of shopping list as I plan meals instead of a manual process. The calendar function (when does your planning period start, etc) isn't as intuitive as it could be. I highly recommend it.
I am just starting on meal planning and I am happy I invested in this one. This app give you a lot of power over details. The initial set up is time consuming as you "type" in your recipes (or import them from websites), edit the possible groceries, categories, stores, store aisles, and pantry inventory. The time spent is well worth it. After planning the meals, I get notifications on when I need to start preparing; and when it comes to shopping, the food is categorized by store and aisle so I can cruise through quickly. I'm still fine-tuning this app to my needs, but it has exceeded my expectations.
I LOVE this app. It takes some time to get things set up properly but once you do you can plan your meals and do your grocery shopping with ease. I love that the grocery list is organized by aisle. I love that once you finish grocery shopping you can move all of the things you just bought into the pantry section. I love that it shows me which recipes I have ingredients for in my pantry. I love that the meal planning section can sync with your apple calendars to add meals onto your calendar (like you would with a paper planner!). It's not perfect - if I have garlic powder in the pantry, then every recipe that uses it shows up as being "in stock", and a recipe only shows an ingredient as being "in stock" if the recipe lists the ingredient exactly like it's listed in your pantry (e.g. freshly ground black pepper and black pepper aren't considered the same ingredient) But really other than that this app is amazing. It just takes some work to get things right.
I really wanted this app to be great, unfortunately it falls short. The barcode scanner recognizes most items, even with the correct weight or volume. However if I scan a 3.2oz item to does say the weight in the description but the app says I have one as the quantity. You can manually update that but what good is that. Even if I were to manually add the value when you update the pantry against a recipe the app cannot calculate between measurements. So if the recipe calls for 1 teaspoon it will subtract the 1 3.2oz container.. 1 for 1. That doesn't help me at all. Also there are only 20 recipes included. Other apps have the ability to use online resources to import recipes. This app does not. Good idea, but needs work to make it useable.
Recently downloaded for my iPad. Had trouble importing recipes from a few sites and contacted Ray. He got back to me within hours --very impressive--and I am happily using this app and website now. Slowly organizing my recipes and hope to use it at its full potential within a few weeks. Update: I've been using this for over a year and I love this app. Easy to use, easy to import recipes from multiple sites, easy to edit and scale recipes. Shopping list and meal planning is easier now. If I could give 100 stars I would.
I love using this app to meal plan. Love that it can go from device to device and syncs easily. Wish it was easier to import recipes, especially from Pinterest. Manually putting in recipes is too time consuming, I quit using that feature. wish I could use it for grocery shopping, it just took too long. Couldn't easily keep pantry part up to date. I mainly just use it for the calendar
This is one of my favorite apps. I love the capability to import recipes, synch shopping lists with my iPhone and iPad, and plan meals for whatever period of time I choose. The only thing that would make the whole thing better is if I could do more from my laptop. As it is, I am able to import recipes, but I cannot put the meals into a plan or create a shopping list. As soon as that is available, I'll change my review to 5 stars!
Very user friendly. Makes meal planning and shopping so much easier.
