"The bells-and-whistles of this app are what make it a must-buy, from grocery lists you can email to how-to illustrations. Bittman also makes it nearly impossible to mess up a dish—each recipe step has a built in timer so there’s less chance you’ll forget how long your osso bucco has been cooking."

This version corrects an issue that could cause the app to crash when started on iOS 9 systems.
Notes et avis
The app is very useful for learning how to cook! It contains lots of recipes from basic (even eggs, rice, pasta) to complex.
While the iPad version of the app could use a UI update to make the app feel loved again, the iPhone version has a more modern appearance and works perfectly on iPhone 5, iOS 10.3.3.
Desperately needs updating/modernizing for modern screens.
Aside from that the recipes and app in general are great.
Cookbook is great, app is not
I LOVE this cookbook, and having it with me on my phone has been hugely helpful as I’ve travelled and moved all over the world. The recipes are simple and always work.
The problem is that the app is SO out of date. First I got messages on my iPhone 6s a few years back that the app wasn’t going to be supported in the next upgrade, and when I got in touch with the developer they told me they weren’t planning updates, that I had to buy a newer version of the app (despite having ALREADY paid them for an app — why couldn’t they update?). Because I love the cookbook so much, I ponied up. And the newer app has absolutely nothing fixed except that it works with the newest iOS.
What doesn’t work? So much. The UX is not good. One example: Search is terrible — the “cancel” button is where you expect the “search” button to be when you’re typing and even after all these years I still hit cancel half the time using the app. Another example: Did someone text you while you were cooking, or did you need to leave the app to search for a substitution or something while cooking? Well, the app doesn’t stay open — it restarts every time you switch back to it, so you have to find the recipe and your place again when you switch back. Those are but two examples that have been issues for many years now. There are more.
Seriously, if I’m going to have to repurchase this app every few years because the developer loves forced obsolescence, they could at least take that money and make the app better.
