BBC Good Food magazine – recipes & inspiration Reviews


Latest issues don't appear.  SenwosretBakes  1 star

Despite my subscription and having the latest version of this app and iOS, the latest issues of the magazine are not available within the app. Customer service merely states that they should appear, but cannot help me beyond that. The content is good. I do still access to my back issues, but I PAID for the next year. Very disappointing.

I don't even have this app and it keeps telling me to update it.


Do not waste your time  artisticforge  1 star

Having a printed subscription is still the way to go. There is a serious downside to the app. There is no way to print directly from the app. There is no way to backup the issues you access to your computer. If you change iPad or upgrade your iPad you need to download all the issues again. That is assuming you can download them again. Downloads are extremely slow. You must tell it to download each issue because there is no download queue. What is the sense of the "restore previous purchased issues" when it will not and can not do that? They do not understand "Restore Previous Purchases". There are missing issues. Most of the embedded videos are broken. This new version does not have the same functionality that the previous version had. This is a cookbook and not a magazine. This is not what I purchase back in 2011, 2012 and 2013. There is no customer support.


Used to love this  ChicagoKAB  2 star

For two years, I have loved using the BBC good food electronic subscription. This week, they've ruined it. I used to be able to search by keyword like "salmon" or "barley" and get all the recipes using that ingredient. There is no search capability. I also used to have categories for bookmarks so I would bookmark all the recipes I liked and then move them in and out of a category called "this week", quickly finding the 3 or 4 I intended to cook in the near future. Gave the app an extra star because the new look and iPhone support are ok.


Have a good appetite this is the magazine for you  Tuscana  5 star

The recipes in this Magazine are out of this world. Easy-to-follow. Worth the investment


Great Food!  JKoester  5 star

Since I can't subscribe to the magazine in the States, this is the next best thing, and less than half the newsstand price without the ads! Great content, wonderful recipes! A keeper.


Good Resource  JustPlainNuts  5 star

Recipes are easy to complete and results are consistent. Will continue to review and prepare some really good products.


Great  Arrepietje  4 star

Looks great and works great...!!!


App  Trishtheposh  4 star

I love the magazine and have subscribed for the last two years.I am somewhat frustrated with the app it never allows me in straight away.It takes like 10mins of figuring out how to get my purchased monthly magazine up.....can we make it a little easier or at least give some guidelines.? Thank You.


Amazing  SassyPayne  5 star

I love Good Food magazine. It gives you everything you need in the app.


Great Magazine  Onelight74  4 star

I love the Good Food eMagazine. It is easy to navigate and I love the interactive features. Great job!


I like  Themrsipad  4 star

They give you the option of downloading two sample issues and it seems like an awesome mag/app. I love all the cool little features that it has and the yummy looking recipes. I would subscribe but 40 bucks for a year is steep. So I think I'll just hand pick the issues I'd like o buy.


Great food recipes  Healingfire  4 star

Fantastic food recipes, but sometimes the ingredients are unfamiliar to the American reader. I would love an American translation legend for ingredients or even an American version of the Ipad magazine. If there could be a measurement converter it would be helpful.The videos are well done and helpful. I like the little boxes of extra information, they are like little packaged treats spread out through the magazine. The photography is simply beautiful. I would have given five stars, but the magazine crashes often.


A yummy read  Nateysmamma  5 star

So excited with my good food mag on my iPad, it is fun, colourful, fabby recipes and love the videos/ interactive stuff! Impatient for each issue!


Good when it works  idiot_dogbrain  3 star

I keeps crashing on me after the last update. If not for that, it would be a 5 star app. People who complain about the price - get over it. Almost all magazine apps are priced the same way.


Get it thru Zinio instead  lindy0116  1 star

Free preview issue won't download and developer doesn't respond to questions.


Great magazine  Lrmo  5 star

Excellent publication!


Not free!!!  Srbbbb1  1 star

Very misleading. Once you download this "free" app, there is a monthly subscription fee!!! Do not download thinking its free - its not. I'd give it zero stars if that were an option.


Great food magazine!  PSsnapper  5 star

I'm a long-time subscriber to the print edition. As a US-based reader, this app is much easier and cheaper than a print sub.


Great  Wub419  4 star

I love this magazine. I have searched all over my city to find and now I can just download.
