Ratings and Reviews
Great potential, but...
I’ve had this app for over six months, and I want to use it so much more than I do, but I have to manually enter all of the information for my pantry items: it’s very time consuming, and frustrating when there’s a barcode scanner and the appearance that there is an online databank that theoretically can retrieve information about a product by scanning a barcode.
This feature—having the option to pull up product information with a barcode—would make this app so much more powerful. I’m disappointed that I haven’t found any way to contact the developer to find out which brands or stores are included in the database: maybe I’d shop somewhere else if I knew which barcodes would scan.
Very up and down app
I'd give this 1 start, but it did seem to work at one point and I'm hoping they get it fixed soon. It seems like every other update breaks more than it fixes. I used it quite a bit when I first got it about a year ago. Had started putting receipts in and was going to start using it for pantry tracking/grocery shopping. But the interface was a bit clunky and it fell out of use. I used it occasionally when it got updated, but there was always something that made it more work than it was worth. I started using it again a few weeks ago, and now it's practically useless. My biggest complaints are its speed (slow to doesn't respond), and quantities. Examples: Enter 1/4 cup grated Parmesan in a recipe and the app converts it to .3 cups when you view the recipe. Open the recipe to edit, select the item, and it's there as 1/4 cup. Also, at times items don't get added to menus when you click the "+" (as far as you can tell), but come back to that day's menu plan later and it's in there multiple times. And finally, sometimes I can't open a recipe from the menu plan from that day. I have to go to the sidebar menu, open the recipes list, and search for it.
Very Disappointed w/New Subscription Model
I am writing in response to the recent decision of the developer to unfairly force long time users into purchasing the “Pro” version in order to use the sync and web access features. My family has been using this app for 4 years, now, and it is very good. Some functionality could be improved with the importing of recipes, but this app has really helped us schedule our family meals, as well as become our recipe library. I am quite upset about having to pay ~$20/year, now! I understand there are costs being incurred, but I strongly disagree with punishing loyal customers who rely on this app daily! We have over 300 recipes/entries in the app, so now we have a gun to our head to either pay to continue to access our own recipe library or try to find another app and start the entire process over again...is that fair? I am not opposed to paying to help offset the costs incurred; however, I believe it should be a lesser amount for loyal customers. So, I strongly urge the developer to reconsider the current plan of action! I recommend “grandfathering” loyal customers and cutting the cost to $10/year while charging new customers the $20/year.
