Good but with frustrations

Helpful app - quick to find recipes and the cook mode is useful. The collections feature is vital for me (it would be useful to be able to select an order in which these are displayed besides alphabetical – the only way I can get my most-used collection to the top of the list is to rename it something odd (“a vegetarian”).

As another reviewer has said, reviews of recipes often have useful suggestions for modifications so not being able to access these is a pain.

I also find it surprising that there is no share function. If I want to share a recipe I’ve come across with someone (often my sons at uni) I can only do that by saving the recipe, going to the website and copying the URL.

Hi Tony,

You can now see and add user comments! We have listened and over the past few months our developers have been working hard to bring you this much-loved feature. If you’re enjoying the Good Food app we’d really appreciate updating your review in the app store.

Best wishes,
BBC Good Food Team.

Absolutely furious

1 star as there is no way to review with zero stars!!! Used to be a great app, I’ve spent many years building up my recipe collections and overnight it’s all gone 🤬🤬🤬 beyond devastated. I subscribed against my better judgement as I am an overseas subscriber to the magazine and honestly think anyone who subscribed to this should have it free or at least a heavy discount! I can access my recipes through the webpage but NOT through the app. The unhelpful advice received after emailing about my problem was remove app and re-download it which I’ve done, then told its a problem with my phone and take it to apple, I explained it’s the same on my iPad and was told that’s broken too…..really? When I then explained it works through the website so the problem is with the app I was told bluntly to use that and not sure why I’m complaining! I was also told even though everything is gone I can now save new things and to just open up webpage and search and save all that I’d lost…..speechless, do your staff on the phone even know how time consuming doing 5 recipes let alone around 500?!? I want to use the app as I always have, I don’t want to have to use the website especially as I’m now paying for it and the website is free!!!!!!! Utterly disappointed and furious at all of my years of collecting are gone with no explanation nor apology

Developer Response ,

Good Morning,

We're so so sorry this has happened and cannot apologize enough for your disappointment and frustration. We've loved having you as a user for so many years and are so sorry you can't find your recipes via the app. If you could please update your app to version 3.0.4 in the app store to ensure you have the best possible app experience.

This app is a separate offer to the BBC Good Food magazine subscription I'm afraid. We are working towards being able to provide a combined subscription opportunity and we will let users know as soon as this is available.

I'm aware you've emailed us already but please feel free to email us again at as we are always here to try and help solve your issue as best as we can.

All the best,

BBC Good Foood Team.

Can’t save to folders

I used to love this app. I try to eat seasonally so it helped me to build a library of recipes depending on the month. Then one day (possibly after an update) it comes up with an error when o try and save anything to a folder. It’s now gone from being an app I used everyday day to just annoying. Please can this be fixed?

Update: I left this review in November after struggling with the app before it became a paid for service. I’d already reached out for support but with no response. The developer replied to my review asking me to email them. This I’ve done twice since November and still don’t have a response. So I am today cancelling my free trial. I would have paid for the app as I’ve put so much time into it but it’s now unworkable and without support to get it fixed there’s just no point. If you’re going to make the decision to turn a free se4vice into a paid one you at least need to make sure the app is working and that you have adequate support in place.
