Dinner Buddy helps you to plan your meals in advance, store and rate your recipes, search the web to view & save recipes, auto-generate a shopping list based on your planned meals, share recipes with friends and send weekly menu or shopping list to others. Once you have saved your regular meals as recipes you will be able to randomly generate a weekly menu, or browse the web and your stored meals for inspiration.

Shopping list function generates a list based on your selected meals and allows you to tick off ingredients you already have at home and tick off as you shop.

Web search function allows you to search and save recipes from a number of well known websites including All Recipes, BBC, and Jamie Oliver.

Free app allows you to create menu for 1 week with 1 meal/recipe only, optional upgrade allows you to plan for up to 4 weeks with multiple meals/recipes per day

Great update... Nearly perfect

I have been using this app for months to plan every dinner before grocery shopping. It has helped us save money and reduce food waste by planning ahead with stretch meals and being able to plan ingredients between multiple meals.

I love that in the new update you can have more weeks to plan ahead and you can plan more meals in a day.

I would add/change:
1) a way to add notes - for instance I get a fruit and veg box delivered so it would help to be able to add in what needs to be "used up" or things in the pantry that need to be used.
2) the ability to change the meals without having to delete and re enter.
3) a drop down of meal types. (School dinners /breakfast /lunch /supper /snack/dessert/side) but not the full title (maybe an abbreviation?)

This is an ok app use regular. However wish I could have more than one shopping list. It’s a pain having to delete a list then do a new one for another person

Near perfect but ads make it unusable

This app does everything I want it to for keeping track of what to eat and what to buy each week. But the ads popping up every minute make it frustrating to use and I ended up not using at all because of it. I would have been happy to pay to remove the ads but theres not even an option for that. I hope the developer plans to improve this app, it has so much potential. Side note- the design could be better, clearer writing, loose the chalk board etc.

Developer Response ,

Hello, thank you for the review, with the new update just released you should now be able to remove the ads if you wish to do so.
