Import of recipes no longer works. Please fix.
Import of recipes no longer works. Please fix.
We have used this app for years and it seems like there are a lot of bugs and careless development over the last year. Integration with sites to import recipes does not work on a regular basis, the apps prep and cool time defaults to hours even know it says minutes and when you enter minutes it displays hours. It has become unreliable lately and can’t depend on it for our recipes. Disappointing as the interface is simple and easy. Unreliable data outweighs the positives at this point.
The "cutting board diary" UI design needs to go! This skeumorphic abomination belong in a museum! Or, did you finally abandon this app?
I have been using this app for years and loved it. For the last several months I have been running into problems. Cannot access the search bar, photos won’t download, freezing screen (I have good wi fi connection, no problems with other apps). Have reported problems and they are good about getting back but w/o a fix for the issues. If you can’t search for the recipe you can’t download the recipe. Will be looking for a substitute.
I'm a little surprised not to see a check off list for when ingredients are added while preparing a dish, in this latest release. :-( Will there be a check off list while adding ingredients while preparing a dish ??
I don’t want this lovely app I love to fall by the way side. Please provide new updates and bug fixes 🙌🏼 I’m not gonna saying to start charging a subscription based fee, but.... just do it and when you do overhaul the visuals and add / mix up the quality of life features . Best wishes
This app no longer imports which makes the app worthless
I love this app. However, in the last few days I cannot put in the time. The number part works but not the minutes or hours part. Never had a problem before. This is why I gave it 4 stars.
I've been a user for at least 3 years, the easy import feature, access across all devices, and easy to share functions make this a home run. This app is simplicity at its best. Easy to use, all the right features. It's a great value.
I have been using this app for quite a few years now, and it is simply the best out there. It is a must for anyone who enjoys keeping important recipes in one place. I love the fact that I can speak the directions – this is a must for us one finger typists.
I loved this app until it stopped working with AllRecipes.com. Can’t import recipes anymore. Really disappointing.
Apple Watch app stopped working. Crashes every time I launch please fix. Still doesn’t work. I paid for this and it’s garbage have you guys gone out of business. Horrible support. I strongly don’t recommend this app
Please update!!!!!!! Won’t import anymore!
I have used this recipe app for a number of years. Enjoy both the custom import and easy import feature, the grocery cart and forwarding recipes to friends. However, not sure what is happening but none of the easy import sites work well, nor does the custom import. Please help!
This was the one reason for having this app and made it so easy. Now with the easy import not working, what’s the point of the app? I might as well just google everything because it’s easy then searching in the app.
I like this app for keeping recipes, but the sharing function does not work. If I hit share and then choose text, it will share “I’m Making ...” but won’t actually include the recipe.
I love this app and I have been using it for many years. However, I need to be able to type in recipes much faster than the process it takes to type it in through my iPad. I have many of my mom’s old recipes that I would like to put on my app, but it takes forever to do one recipe at a time. This app needs a computer version in order for the process to be much faster. I am not importing off the Internet, I am putting recipes in the app that are written down in cursive.
For some reason the easy import is not working when I’m in food network trying to import a recipe. I have to do the custom, which is a lot more difficult.
It was great for awhile, but now it won’t save recipes anymore. It says it’s importing, but then it doesn’t show the saved recipe and when I go look for it in my recipes, it’s not there. I’m really disappointed.
The Easy Import tab appears on many recipes I’m trying to import but it rarely works. “Importing..” flashes for a couple of seconds but nothing happens. I’ve updated the app to latest version, but no difference.
I have used this app a lot over several years, but recently it will not allow me to import. Very disappointing. I would have given five stars prior to this happening.
In the last several weeks, whenever I try to use the easy import function, it doesn’t import the recipe at all.
When I go to an all recipes recipe and try to import it. I just get the spinning wheel for ever Please fix
This was a favorite app of mine but I can no longer add recipes using my iPhone. Easy import no longer working for me and after looking in the App Store the grocery list portion needs a lot of work compared to other apps out there. Switching to something better.
I’ve stored my recipes in this app for a long time. I loved it! It was perfect. But now when I look at all my recipes I have to scroll through “recipe book selections” to find my stuff. When I click “all my recipes” I want MY recipes, not the visual clutter of someone else’s.
App seems nice but the category selection is not working so I can’t section off my recipes.
I used to use an app called hot pot to download recipes from the Internet and to enter my personal recipes. It was apparently discontinued and I’ve been searching for about a year for one to take its place. I have purchased multiple apps with poor results until now. This one fills the bill plus does everything a lot easier. It allows me to download recipes and once they are imported to scale up and down. It also will easily creat a grocery list. The only thing that I would like to see improvement in is the search engine on the Internet browser.
This app is easy to use and feature rich. I’ve been using Recipe Book for over 5 years and I Love it! I’ve evaluated other recipe book apps and they have always fallen short in comparison. I do have one item on my wish list and that is the ability to create a PDF file of my recipes.
You can’t search just any website you want but only the 7-10 websites that this app has allowed. Very limited. Might as well just take a picture of the recipe and store the pic in a folder rather than spend the extra dollar for this app. Disappointing.
My go-to recipe book. Great for developing, editing, and storing recipes. Use it every day.
I have just one question.....Is this also available for my android phone? I love this app but have a feeling that it is Apple only?
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.
I love the program! Could you add: Rate a recipe? Rest or proof time? It’s a possible to use the program on her computer? Also can I share my recipes with my children who have android devices?
I have had this app for several years and literally use it every day. With the most recent update, however, I have lost a little functionality. When browsing on-line sites to upload new recipes, I can no longer navigate around the site. If I browse a recipe and then want to go back to the previous page, there is no way to do it. My only option is “Done” which takes me back to my own recipe list. There used to be an arrow that would take me back to the previous page rather than kicking me out of the online site. It is a bit frustrating and I hope you can address it! Otherwise, this has been a very useful and enjoyable app! Edited 4/28/18 : WOW! Fixed my problem! Thank you, thank you!!
I’ve used this app for years and it is the only app for me. I sent in a very small issue yesterday after recent update. I received an email response in a an hour or two, and then today got another email telling me about the update to fix the issue. One day! That is impressive and awe inspiring. Thanks so much and if you ever stop I’ll be lost.
I have so many original recipes and finally an app in which I can keep all of the recipes together. Photo's easily added and sending recipes to friends and family makes this my number 1 app!!! If you have your own recipes this app is for you!!!
I love it. I cannot live without it.
I love this app, have been using it for years. Unfortunately with the last update, the app does not show a full screen shot. Something has gone wrong. Please send a fix ASAP! I have almost 3000 recipes which I would hate to loose!
Always use the app and love it. But the latest update will not show full screen on 12” iPad Pro.
Will you ever make the app compatible with Droid and Samsung devices?
I’ve had this app for about 4 years and have always loved how it worked until now. The latest update made it much harder to see the recipes on the full screen of iPad. Some of the icons jump to over and cover part of the recipe when in landscape or enlarge print. It almost looks like I have the phone version on my iPad now...which I do not. I was able to scan the list of recipes and glance at individual recipe on same screen when in landscape....can no longer do this. I did not have these problems previous to the update. Please change the app back!
I have been collecting web recipes in Evernote and buying ebooks of cookbooks. Evernote gets strange formatting issues sometimes that you can’t seem to fix without desktop version. And trying to cook with the kindle app is so frustrating with all the formatting quirks and terrible searching functions. So I’ve started compiling everything into this app. It’s a bit tedious by hand but worth its weight in gold for the organization feature. Having timers built in is sweet too so I don’t have to yell, "hey Siri...Hey Siri! set a timer for 15 minutes" Siri: ok I’ve set a timer for 50 minutes. <insert facepalm here> 4 things I wish for in this app: Add a prep drop down like the ingredient name so I can choose "chopped, minced, etc..." rather than have 10 different listings of onion as a ingredient. Would also make the grocery list so much cleaner too. Another would be the ability to bold, highlight, and/or color text in the directions. I have a habit of skipping over ingredients and it would help to make them stand out more. It would also be nice to tag each direction with estimated time for completion so when making multiple items or meal prep, I can be much more efficient. The last would be to tag grocery list items to the recipe so if I change my mind while shopping, I don’t accidentally skip something I shouldn’t of or buy something I didn’t need.
Love this App have been using it on my iPad and iPhone for 5 years, outside of slow to load on my iPhone it is great but today when I logged in on my iPad Pro it is coming across as 1/3 of the page. Please fix!!
I’ve been using this app on and off for a few years, and always found it to be easy to use, even when using “Custom Import.” Lately, though, when I have to import manually, the app doesn’t let me capture all the information I need for each category and runs all the ingredients together, rather than putting them on separate lines. Frustrating and always takes additional typing and cleanup. There must be better apps out there.
Trying to replace an outdated app that I liked very much. Need customize able categories and perhaps a description field Need to make picture selectable so you can view a bigger image if you tap on it.
i do still love this app! i would like to see "Cut & Paste" from a website tho ...... it would be easier than having to hand write a recipe in order to type it in by hand
So easy to use and love the ability to download and add recipes from my favorite places.
I have always liked this app and use it quite a lot. However it has been getting worse as far as crashing. It crashes all the time. It could be when I’m opening the app itself or opening a recipe or doing a search. It doesn’t seem to matter. It is getting to the point where it is really quite irritating. I never know if it is actually going to work. I use an iPad, about a year old, don’t know if that makes a difference or not. Anyway I would appreciate any suggestions you have. I really do like your app and appreciate it very much. Thank you.
I bought this because I frequently tear out pages from magazines and want to just photograph the recipe and file it. Unfortunately you can’t zoom in on the picture so I wasted my money. My search continues
