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.

I’ve tried to use this app so many times but am always annoyed. The search function is terrible. If you want ideas for what to do with a couple of ingredients you have it will only search recipe titles, even if both ingredients are listed in the main recipe, it won’t come up unless it’s in the title.
Then then it treats each word as individual ingredients. For example, if you search for white cabbage the first two suggestions are for white sourdough and white chocolate cake 🤦🏻‍♀️. I don’t know how many times I’ve given up on the app only to find a Good Food recipe immediately on Pinterest.
Then every single time I have to use the filter to select only vegetarian options. I have a saved profile - is it really that hard to have default preferences?

Sadly can’t read reviews.

I’ve used the website for years. The app certainly navigates around the recipe database very rapidly on the iPad and I’ve found recipes quicker than on the website. Others have complained about the adverts but this is no worse than on the website and I guess they need a revenue stream.

The biggest disappointment is that you can’t read the reviews on the recipes. The star rating is all well and good but I’ve always found the reviews contain many helpful suggestions for making or tweaking the recipes. This is to me an essential component missing from the app, hence only three stars.
