Total rip off

I purchased the app to use their library of drinks it claims to have and all I get is a page showing rum etc but no recipes... it will only let you add your own recipe... wasted time and money.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for the feedback. The app did have over 300 recipes embedded. Please drop us a message with your iOS/iPhone version at, and we will try to see what might be the problem. Please be aware that the app using iCloud to sync recipes between many devices, and the problem might be with a slow iCloud connection. If this is the case, please try to close the app in the background and restart it.
