Amazing!!  Glturner5  5 star

Last weekend I got rid of over half my cookbooks by going through them and taking pictures & cataloging my favorite recipes out of them. I'll also be able to do that when I'm sitting in a waiting room and find a recipe that I like. I love this app!


Love it!  Queenb9903  5 star

Once I got used to it, I love it for all the recipes I get from the internet.


I love it!  Serabean  5 star

Best recipe app out there!


Excellent app  billsfun  5 star

This app was the answer to a recipe management nightmare. It is a pleasure to find the recipe I want now. Adding new recipes is a piece of cake. (Pun intended) Any problem was promptly and politely responded to. This is a great app!

Love This App!!!  Pat Fan Jan  5 star

I had quite the paper collection of recipes dreading to have to manually enter them into some other program. However, with this app, getting my recipes into electronic format was incredibly easy and a time saver. Worth the money paid.


Love this app!  Texasmilly  5 star

Takes pics of my magazine tear outs and organizes the clutter!

You can add recipes from anywhere!  Satisfied 2012  5 star

This app is just what I wanted. I can copy recipes from websites, I can add my own recipes by entering them, and I can take pictures of recipes from boxes or cans and have everything organized in one place. No more wondering where I put a recipe I saved. AND I have access to my favorite recipes when I visit family or go RVing! Slight learning curve in the beginning but well worth a little time. I love it! April 2017 - Still love this app!


Love this app!  Hotwheels7  5 star

I save hundreds of recipes in my notes as well as in my photos. This app makes it incredibly quick and easy to save and organize all of them. Additionally, I love being able to add new categories. In fact, I've probably added 20 new categories since I downloaded this app earlier in the week. It's well worth the price and you won't be disappointed!


ADDICTED  tackytiff  5 star

I can't get enough of this App! Thank you so much I can finely store all my old newspaper & magazine clippings all together on my iPhone in one app. Genius😍


Exactly what I was looking for  Hmgeri  5 star

Took recipes gathered over the last 15 years and allowed me to FINALLY have them all in one place. If the website goes down later, I still have the recipe. I love the ability to tag what I want and to add tags as necessary (example, I added "Crockpot" and several more. Not only is it exactly what I want, but it's fun too! I love capturing the recipe and picture from the web site. It is so easy. I do it all on my mini iPad


Top Shelf App & Support  K48025  5 star

I love this app. I can capture recipes from bookmarks/cooking websites and also input my piles of papers from old magazines and newspapers. You can copy text too. Finally all my recipes will be in one place! Mike the app owner responded within 24 hours when I had questions and was considering purchasing and during initial set up. I am confident my love for this will last!


Great tool  Sweetcaroline72  5 star

This is a great app! Love how I can categorize everything. And when you are using a recipe it doesn't close on you. Getting all my recipes in has not been too bad: as I use a recipe I take a pic of the written version so I don't hv to type it out. This has saved me a lot of time so I really like this option. It's been an awesome tool!

No more searching my phone...  Leigh Ann S  5 star

Finally a place I can sort & keep all of the recipes I screenshot or take photos of from magazines! Easy to crop, upload, and sort!


Best App Ever. Rock Solid  NostreamforMe  5 star

I used to have a folder on my desktop full of recipes, could find or remember any of them. Now I am organized. This is worth buying a dedicated IPad for. Thanks

If you're looking for an organized, straightforward vault for all your recipes, stop here and hit the download button now. You can capture recipes that are handwritten, in a book, or online all from within the app and I love that each recipe can be in multiple folders at once. There's also a wishlist that bookmarks online recipes you want to try out, which is helpful and cool. This app doesn't have any advertising, it doesn't try to make a grocery list for you, and it doesn't come with any pre-programmed recipes. What more could you ask for?
