  • Love the app only one suggestion

    By Spud 925
    I really love the user interface. It is intuitive, clear, and well laid out. I have used this app to organize everything from grocery purchases, meal planning, and the recipe database. Everything works great! I have one suggestion for a need that has come up recently in my life, and thought it may be applicable to others. There is a group of 3 of us that want to start eating healthier I would like to share recipes and meal calendars seamlessly through the app instead of emailing each recipe to the other 2 people. So I guess my suggestion would be a readable version of a shared paprika app, with an option to import the shared apps recipes into my own recipes. Maybe that could be done for a future update. Otherwise I love the app and use it all the time.
  • Best recipe app!

    By Sandy Fitzberger
    This is the best recipe app I have come across. All you do is add in the URL and it automatically sets up the recipe to be imported. My only complaint is that it doesn't calculate nutritional information. Other than that it is perfect. I bought it also for my iPad and home PC and everything syncs seamlessly! Love love love it!
  • Good, almost great

    By Smeier1972
    I am not exaggerating when I say this app has changed my life. My family uses it daily and we LOVE it. I have it on iPhone, Android, iPad and Windows. The only thing that keeps this from being a 5-star review is that I wish that there were some features available. It would be nice to be able to sort groceries into different stores (such as BJ's, Target, Market Basket, etc.) - these could be user-defined like categories, and then into aisles. Also, it would be great if I could set the week start day on desktop (since I print my weekly menu from there) as I can on my phone. Then my life would be complete! Thanks!
  • I used to love this app, but

    By Edgarxxiii
    It is no longer able to save recipes from my favorite websites like serious eats, delish, or food network so I can't add anything new. I tried contacting support and all I got was lists of self help questions.
  • Recipe Organization at its Best

    By Mmcphee
    Fabulous app. Well worth the price. Pulls the recipes out of the endless unrelated blog ramblings and 17 pictures of chopped onions. Since it is saved in the app if the author moves the recipe or deletes it you still have it, but I like that it links back to the original source. Editing ingredients and directions is easy and I love the scaling feature. Being able to browse the web for recipes within the app make it convenient to find new recipes.
  • Good but expensive

    By Arizonaishot
    I started using his because my other app wasn't being supported anymore. It is a great app but I was disappointed to find I needed to pay $5 each for my phone and iPad.
  • Don't let this company milk your wallet

    By JDGoesMarching
    It's absolutely ridiculous that you're expected to pay individually for iPhone, iPad, and desktop use especially when cloud syncing is your primary selling point. Switching to a recipe manager that doesn't try to exploit every inch of your bank account.
  • Fabulous!

    By Karakoram23
    I have tried a number of recipe manager apps and this one is phenomenal. Two things that make this my favorite is ease of use and a picture of the item. Paprika has successfully downloaded every website's recipes (unlike many of the other recipe organizers that only support certain sites). It is also nice to be able to see a photo of the item being prepared and have it categorized

    I just want to say that this is a fabulous product. It is intuitive to use. Everytime I use the program, I find new features that make my experience even better. Thank you for this wonderful kitchen helper. My life is much easier with this assistant.
  • Has all of the features I need

    By trippybrowneyes
    Prior to using Paprika, I was using the free version of Big Oven for its web scraper. But the app was glitchy (it wouldn't load all of your recipes immediately), it would still send you to the ad-heavy blog post that contained your saved recipe instead of saving a full-text version, and you were limited with the number of recipes and edit capabilities (in the free version). While looking for a replacement, I found Paprika. The one-time fee of $5 is completely worth it. I have had no problems with the app easily loading a full-text version of a recipe from any of the sites I have tried. The recipe is then editable, and I can categorize it as I choose. I can also enter a recipe from scratch. If I decide to add a recipe to my meal plan, I can easily export the ingredients of my choice to a grocery list. One of my favorite features is that the screen doesn't turn off when I have a recipe open. There is nothing more annoying than having to log into your phone every few minutes to refer to the next step of your recipe, when you have raw meat juice on your hands. I highly recommend this app.
