Really hoping this app will improve

I love the concept of doing inventory and connecting it with Alexa. This app is full of potential, but I’m disappointed that some features are gone after the latest update and some are not working well.

-There should be a much easier way such as a slider or voice command to update the amount of an item. Now I have to click on the item and re-type the amount, and somehow a duplicate will be created. If I delete the duplicate, then the original item will be deleted as well-very confusing.
-The recipe function is not sensitive enough for keywords. For example, I have “sea salt” in my Pantry, but a recipe that requires “salt” won’t recognize it.
-The app has crashed a few times when I try to view the items in a category I created.
-When scanning barcodes, the expiration dates and categories are inaccurate (e.g. chicken broth is categorized as Dairy). Although I can change the categories and dates manually, it’s time-consuming. What’s the point of scanning if I end up typing the whole thing?
-No response on the scanning receipt function.
-The default icons are dull. They used to be in different shapes.
-Not sure what the correct command is to ask Alexa what items I have in a certain category such as Seafood.

I could love this app. Please improve!

Convinient App

I am in search of the best app that i can utilize for cooking and came across this. This app is very convenient and very thoughtfully developed. It has all the features somebody would look for in terms of cooking. Pantry list, shopping list, recipe keeper and meal planning, an all in one app. Another biggest feature would be lookin for recipes online. I can see its potential to a great deal.

These are few suggestions for app improvement:

1. We can add new categories in the pantry but there is no provision to edit the categories added. An edit feature will be very helpful.

2. Linking the products in the pantry to recipes will be a great addition. For example, clicking on eggplant in the pantry list shows the recipes corresponding to eggplant. Basically link the recipe search feature here.

3. When adding a new recipe, it would be very beneficial if ingredients can be linked to pantry list. That way when an ingredient is added, it can suggest from the pantry and also when you can click on the ingredient, you can retrieve the recipe.

4. Under Recipes section , there is a provision to search by ingredient name or dish name. But this returns the results from the discover section but doesn't return the recipes added by the user.

App has great potential!!

I’m glad you fixed the deleting of expired items! Just because something is expired according to the app doesn’t mean it’s actually expired. The user may not have changed the expire by date, some of them are unbelievably short according to the app, and realistically several expired items can be extended. Maybe some sort of blank expiration date field is the better choice and let each user input that. Or a reminder to check expiration dates when adding to the pantry or something.

Next up app scanning barcode and the data that is imported for the title. Example was today I scanned a Garlic pepper mustard and it recognized the name and brand and size in the secondary description box but in the primary box it listed whipped cream and placed it under dairy. I’m not sure if these lists are user entered and stored on a group database or the developer or someone on the backend is inputting this data, but many many many have the right secondary but primary comes up wrong and it places it then in a wrong category.

Lastly I love the feature of the recipes tied with items in your house and I hope this continues to grow! 👍👍

Glad I found this app, can’t wait to see where it goes! Keep up the great work.
