Great app, however...

Great app, however, most of the time it closes itself. When I tap the app, it works for a couple of seconds, yet when I go to tap on anything, the screen goes black and the app closes. I’ve tried uninstalling and reinstalling, as well as restarting my phone. I’m not sure if the problem lies with the app itself, or just my phone, but i’m not sure if there’s a fix. Still, when the app does work, it’s great. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a healthy lifestyle.

Great App but some inconsistencies.

This a useful app and has some easy and tasty recipes on, however it seems to differ its content, the Mrs and I both have the same App, updated to the same version, yet she has recipes I don't and she has saved recipes that no longer appear on the app meaning I am unable to search for them.

May be a bug, and if it is can we squash it pretty soon, its affecting the user experience and as a result affecting your rating on this review.

The ability to share recipes as well via whatsapp, messenger etc would be useful as well and bring more exposure to the App.

Thank you it's brilliant!

As a newish mum this is an invaluable resource for cooking meals for my family.
When hubby or I need weekday inspiration, it's there in an easy to use format with lots of great colours and images.
The recipes are quick, easy and minimum faf. I have found that they give inspiration too as they are so adaptable.

In fact I love this app so much I wish I could add my own recipes to the list. Nothing else out there is as easy to use or as fun.
