MasterCook 2020 and App

I have been a MasterCook user for a couple of years with MC 15 and recently moved to MC 2020. What a love/hate relationship. Love the PC App (Win 10). It is great for importing off Web and I have gotten very good at managing my recipes and cookbooks. It also syncs well down to my iOS devices. Hate the IOS app. Can’t change white fonts on white background for lists. (They are more visible with the new app vs invisible for older app). Online lists are black fonts. You cannot sync from IOS devices to online, you had better add your recipes on the PC and sync down. iPad users cannot use landscape, same app for iPhone and iPad. That was really not acceptable on MC 15, but a brand new app 20 years into the 21st Century...NOT. 4.5 stars for MasterCook 2020 PC/Online. 2 Stars for disappointing app.

Updated from Living Cookbook

I have been using this program and apps for over a year now. I was very reluctant to move as I really liked Living Cookbook and I had a lot stored there. But since the program seems to be no longer serviced I decided it was time to find a new program. MasterCook offered two great options for me. I was able to move my recipes and I would now be able to view them on my iPad and while shopping on my iPhone. MasterCook supplied me with all the help I needed to move my content. I have never found any program with better support than MasterCook. True there was a good bit of time spent in cleaning it up once moved but it’s all there. I noticed some complaints about this app but I can’t agree. Perhaps it was earlier versions? I really do like this program and it’s apps. If I had any complaint it would be that the annual cost is steep. But other than that it is a great program with great support.

Mastercook has all the features!

I've been using Mastercook basically my entire adult life. Every time I need to re-subscribe I look around to see if there's anything better yet. So far the desktop version is the most detail-oriented program available-by which I mean nothing else comes close. It literally has everything I need and that's a tall order.

Now about the app...this was long-awaited. Being able to sync my recipes from my computer and access them from my phone or IPad is priceless. They are always updating, the customer service is beyond compare, and when something is wrong with the app, the programmers scramble and it doesn't stay a problem for long. I think any app that works to update as much as MC deserves patience from their users. They are always improving and adding features. It's been worth my loyalty all these years.
