  • Great App - No Update

    By Somersue
    This is a fantastic app but it hasn't been updated in 3 years and is now slowing down my phone. I have TONS of recipes stored, which is unfortunate. If they get the technology under control, it's wonderful but as it is, don't waste your money.
  • No no no no

    By Dooper74
    Good effort, pretty graphics, but poorly executed. Sorry, but I wouldn't recommend this app at all.....especially for $4!! Definitely could have shredded 4 bucks in my shredder and gotten more enjoyment & use. Cute app though!
  • Cannot add recipe from URL - Error message

    By amknbk
    When trying to add recipes via a URL it says that it cannot happen at this time and to try again later. I close the app and try again and it still doesn't work. Also, a pop up from apple says that the software is not up to date and the app is slowing down my phone due to developer needing to provide an update. Not being able to add a recipe via a URL means you have to manually add everything instead of it pulling info from the website and filling in the blanks. Much more time consuming. Pretty disappointed I wasted my money on this app with developers who don't care to stay up to date with their software.
  • Love it

    By Nneettee
    I have needed this for years! I hate figuring out what to make night after night. This app does that for me. I can input as much or as little as I choose. If I just want the name if the meal it's enough. If I want the ingredients for shopping that enough. BUT if I want to pass it to a friend I can have the instructions too. I just love the versatility. Thanks spinning!
  • What a waste

    By Tattooedmommyof2
    this app was a waste and hasn't been updated in ages. Will not work for me and only pulls up the same 5-6 recipes.
  • Not what I wanted.

    By Lisapisa1234
    I wanted it to suggest meal to me.
  • Excelent app

    By Jovipg
    It has all I wanted for keeping my recipes organized and always available. I can add my own recipes as well as recipes from the web!! It is the solution to having it all in just one place!! Truly love this app.
  • Great App!

    By MrsMealtime
    This app is quite helpful for all who want planned meals and grocery list in one! However, it would be helpful if they allowed you to be able to view all of your meals for the month before deleting them.
  • Categories

    By Rgiampie
    I love this app! Could you please add more categories? The dessert category is just too broad. It would be nice to have baked goods, pastries, chocolate desserts, frozen desserts, etc. Or maybe just make the categories something that we can customize and add titles ourselves? Thanks! You rock! OH! UPDATE 3/30/2016**** It would be really useful when creating meals to be able to add side dishes that are not recipes, like canned corn, corn on the cob, canned baked beans - simple things like that that don't require a recipe but still need to be on the grocery list.
  • Phenomenal App

    By ArtBlue
    The user experience is not that intuitive, but once you figure out how things work, this will soon become your favorite app.
