MealPlan is an easy, efficient way to plan meals and groceries.
"I am thoroughly enjoying your MealPlan app!" "Super app!" "Finally - a simple, easy-to-use menu planning app that looks good as well."
Now with Apple Watch (watchOS 4) support!
MealPlan is a weekly meal and grocery planning app that's focused on getting the job done efficiently. You use a simple interface to plan out meals like “Hamburgers on Thursday, Fish and Rice on Friday”. Recent meals are easily available or you can type in new items the first time you use them.
MealPlan is a universal app, and will sync between your iPhone and iPad using either iCloud or Dropbox. Plan your meals on the iPad's big screen, and automatically have your grocery list with you on your phone. And access your grocery list from your Apple Watch.
MealPlan creates your grocery list as you're planning meals. When you're done, tap the Grocery Basket to see the list, add new items, mark off items you already have, and then print it, email it, or sync it with your iPhone. This is a huge time saver!
And, on the iPad, once you’ve used the app for a few weeks, the Magic Wand will help you quickly fill out subsequent weeks, with a quick suggestions interface.

"Before MealPlan, I’d buy food at the grocery store and then forget I had it .. a few days later it would go to waste. A few minutes every week standing in front of the fridge with MealPlan in hand will help you get the most out of what you have on hand. Plan it, print it out and stick it to your fridge!"

I rely on it. Minor issue still
Incredible response from the developer that did a good job of addressing the issues. Most are fixed and I can use the app as I did before. One hanging issue left: I still can’t click on a link that’s in the notes; instead I have to tap and hold, select it, copy and paste it into a webpage, even though the text looks like a hyperlink.
The app has been crashing on me every time I open it. It seems to be related to having web links in the notes. Before the last recipe I added, I was relying on it heavily. It was easy to get groceries for any number of days, and I really loved having a grocery list and recipe keeper combined.
Glitches I’ve noticed:
As stated, links in the notes are troublesome.
Sometimes, meat from recipes don’t appear on the grocery list.
Recipe suggestions only work if you populate every meal every day for a certain number of days.
Not a glitch, but measurements only allow decimals, so I can’t tap “1/3 cup” but have to use 0.33 instead.
Things I love: I can sync between my phone and my husband’s, so we both know what groceries to get or what the meal is without having to ask each other lots of questions. I like how easy it is to search through recipes, and how easy it is to categorize. I like that I can add photos, too.
Developer Response ,
Hi Larissa - This should be fixed with the current update in the store (2.22). Please install that and try it again. I'm sorry for the inconvenience.
I like this app very much. It’s a simple meal planner and grocery list creation tool. I didn’t want something to create meals for me but for me to be able to plan out the meals I already have on paper. It does that part great! The one thing I wish the app had was an online interface so that I can use a mouse and keyboard to creat my meals and such.
Highly recommend if you are looking for a simple meal planning app.
The best meal panning app ever!!
I've been using this app for two years now and absolutely love it! I've never had any issues with app performance even on my older devices. The menus are so easy to organize, edit, and add to its made keeping a menu a realistic part of my weekly routine! I also really love the "magic wand" feature. When you have no time to make a menu, it helps pick from items you used before to create an awesome menu! It's also great when you are running out of ideas of what to make. This app won't disappoint you!!
