  • Not being maintained

    By Jacqjacks
    This used to be the best recipe app available. I loved it! Easily 5 ⭐️. However the developer has not updated it in over 2 years and it’s just a matter of time before there’s an iOS update that’s not compatible with this version and when that happens, we will lose all our recipes! This is really too bad, because this was a fabulous app.
  • Great app. But has some glitches.

    Love app when it works. But will no longer copy from iPad to phone.
  • No Support

    By Hollyog
    I’ve had this app on my iPad for years and recently purchased it for my iPhone hoping to sync my recipes. It fails to sync. There is no way to contact the developer to work on problems. Very disappointed.
  • What happened?

    By superflyme
    I liked this at first now it won’t import anything. I have reported several times with no improvement. Wish it was like it used to be ☹️
  • Not happy...

    By Okccopswife
    I have had this app for a few years and loved it! I have three girls that also downloaded it and I was able to link my recipes to them when they moved out. Now the link process is not working at all. Tried with and without WiFi, using Bluetooth instead and vicaversa. I’m very disappointed. I wish they would update it and fix it.
  • Broken

    Can’t transfer recipes. Dev has given up on this app. Not gonna trust it with my recipes anymore. Moving on.
  • Needs update or way to export recipes

    By Sundog66
    Unlike some other recipe organizers, this app does not export in a format that can be used in newer/other apps. Since it looks like this app is now forgotten, it is unfortunate for all of us that paid for this and have amassed a large collection. The day will come soon that even this version will no longer work with a current iOS. Hopefully it is not forgotten. Some communication for the developers would be nice.
  • Love the app BUT it needs to be updated for iOS

    By MPrichard
    I was an early adopter of this app and have relied on it for many years on my iPad. I try to keep a copy of recipes on my phone for impromptu shopping lists but recently learned the recipe link function does not work with latest IOS. Seeing it hasn’t been updated in years, I hope this is not the beginning of the end for the viability of this app.
  • No updates. Disappointing.

    By zamboni33
    No customer service. No updates. PAID customer for many years.
  • Was great, can be again!

    Really hope this is still an “active” app. The developer has not updated for over a year. Would love iPhone X support and fixes for import and copy. Took the time to add all my family recipes to these, really hope it doesn’t just fade away or become completely inoperable.
