I have loved this app for a few years, but now it will no longer import recipes from the internet (custom or otherwise). It seems this app is dead in the water and I'm going to look elsewhere. It's a shame, because it's a great app (5stars) when functioning.
I have had this app for years and live it! From time to time I have had questions and the support has been prompt, and efficient, and in terms I can understand!! I literally refer to or use this app everyday!
This was a favorite app of mine but I can no longer add recipes using my iPhone. Works fine on my iPad though. Wish they'd fix the iPhone issue. Would give 5 stars if it worked.
UPDATE - 2017. Still the best recipe app out there. Still loving it and after all this time, it is still my go to app. UPDATE - I am still loving this app! It is my 'go to' for all my recipes. I had one suggestion. I wish I could keep small cooking videos in there as well. This is STILL the best recipe app in the App Store bar none and it still deserves 10 stars! I have been using My Recipe Book ever since it debuted in the App Store and I have never found a better one. I can add any recipe I find on the web by using the custom import, I can use the cooking sites suggested in the app to find recipes and I can add my own. I can even use my own pictures. All of this is accomplished so easy that I enjoy using it. You can add your own categories and delete the ones you don't use. There are so many options that organizing your recipes is a breeze. Simply put, I LOVE this app. There's nothing else like it.
Great app, I love it!! I do hope updates will be continue by its support team. One suggestion I would love to see is a way to add additional categories or tag recipes for things like Paleo, Whole30, specific holidays; or even allow us to customize our own categories. I would also like to see them add weekly meal planning features to create meal planning using my recipes that I've saved. My app works great with no problems noted. It loads recipes from other sites and syncs with my other electronic devices for recipes, grocery lists, etc. I can even share recipes with my friends. It will let me import recipes they share as well. When saving recipes from on line recipe sites, I have to tap "importing" if it seems to be taking an extended time to import. It will tell me it's still "importing" or immediately finish importing without a problem. Great app! Please do continue to update and support this app!
I have had this app for 5 years the fully paid version. The issues are its slow, the easy import recipe function is terrible and doesn't work any longer. When you search for a recipe via their search it doesn't bring up the right recipes on the actual website. Food network example search Hollandaise sauce it brings up meatloaf. If you click the search bar on the site and search you find the recipe. It refuses to import it in. As a long time user this app frustrates me.
Update Feb 2017: this app was so amazing when it came out. I don't think it has been updated for a very long time. The import function is no longer working. I have lost my recipes when I updated my iPad. I am so sad because this was an amazing app. After one month of using this, I have put my favorite recipes from all over and now have gotten rid of all my old recipe books and have de cluttered my kitchen. What a lifesaver.
I can no longer import from My Recipes. There needs to be an update to correct this or let us know if that web site is no longer supported so we can move on
Exactly what I want, but it doesn't work on my iPad Air 2! Works fine on my iPhone, but it won't allow me to copy/paste ingredient lists on the iPad. It requires that I enter each item's measurement and name. Incredibly time-consuming. (When I click on INGREDIENTS, detailed measurement blanks appear. No blank page to paste onto.) Nothing in the instructions helps. 😡😕
Update 3/5/017: I still love this app, but I need something more. I want to be able to use the app on my laptop or computer. It's too hard/takes too long to input new recipes on myiPad. I am searching for another app that lets me switch between the mobile iPhone/iPad and my PC. Original review: I love this app! I've had it for a week and used it every day. It's so easy to find a recipe, prop up the iPad and cook away. I've been uploading my favorite recipes and sharing with my sister. I love that I can immediately take a photo to add, or even add my own photo to an existing recipe.
This is THE killer app for recipes. Better than anything I've ever used. But it desperately needs support and updating. The share feature would be awesome to have but it doesn't work at all. Making sure the app's functionality remains up to date with latest iOS versions is essential too. If it's a money thing, I would pay for this app if it meant more support.
**Update**. Downgrading this to three stars. I have over 300 recipes in this and now it doesn't seem to be able to handle the volume. Customer service told me to turn the sync off just to be able to use the recipes I have, but then I can't use the grocery list feature (make the list on my iPad, take my iPhone to the store...). Very frustrating. I love to cook so I have lots of recipes!! Searched for an app for my recipes for a while - this one is it! I just wish it would talk to My Fitness Pal so I wouldn't have to type my favorites there for nutrition.
I switched to this app when Chef's Hat imploded. I find it very frustrating that I can't import a recipe that I have photographed. Unless I want to search online for a recipe, recipes have to be entered by hand. Getting to a recipe site that is not on the list is a hassle. There is no response from customer support even though there is a "contact us" option. I'm looking for a different app.
Custom imports no longer work... Latest update... Kitchen sync crashes on iphone 5 Down one star- I now have an iphone 6s AND STILL cannot import recipes
I use this app everyday with great success but when it comes to customer support you might as well forget it. I use to be able to backup my recipes but now all of that has changed and my recipes cannot be backed up. With new versions of itunes backing up has changed. I asked customer support via email for an explaination of 'recipe sync' but no response. Considering to switching to another app.
I have had this app for the last two years and always write down my favorite recipes in it. I love the setup, the ease of adding recipes, ingredients & pictures. I also love that my recipes are synced between my iPad & iPhone. My one issue: I hate that I cannot delete the recipes that the app has added in itself!!! I do not want those recipes. I am very particular about what I choose to make and if I want ideas I can search for them. I HATE this part of the app. I loved when I could open the app & only saw what I had saved. If they remove this feature I would give the app five stars. Irritates me to no end.
I love this app! Haven't been able to open it. Please tell me what I can do. Have uninstalled and reinstalled twice. Tried to contact on App Support. Unsuccessful. This is my only cookbook!!! I'm lost without it!
Aplicativo perfeito para guardar receitas favoritas digitando ou importando de sites da internet.
Really loving this app! I've already imported 100 recipes! Pure genius for any online recipe collector! Added plus to have the backup should something go wrong! ❤️❤️❤️
Love this app. Was alarmed when it didn't show up when I upgraded my mini. Was really worried I had lost all my data, but was really happy to see it synced to the cloud and all my recipes are safe! I've loved the app for a few years now, but the sync is icing on the cake... So to speak
