The app does not work anymore

I am trying to "Easy import" recipe from FoodNetwork "Pesto" by Ina Garten and when I try to input into search box on FoodNetwork website the app keeps reloading the website and typing into the search box is next to impossible. When I finally got the recipe showing the Easy Import does not work. It shows "importing" but nothing happens, I wait for several minutes and it is still "importing". Tried numerous times. Other recipes and websites don't work well either. There are no recent postings from users so I do not advise anyone to buy it because you will just waste your time. I think that whoever made this app is not supporting it anymore. If you try the website there is no way to contact any customer support. I am very disappointed. I've used this app for a few years and have spent a lot of time inputing recipes into it and now I have to get another app and start all over again.

I'm so sorry you're frustrated with importing. Sometimes the recipe websites change something on their end, and we have to update how we pull recipes in on our end. I just checked the site you were having issues with, and it's working properly now. If you're having an issue with a site in the future, please email us at There is also a link on the settings screen of the app to contact customer support.

Love this app!

I love this app and recommend it to everyone I know. My husband and I share an account, so that our grocery list can sync between devices. I love being able to input recipes from my phone and have them on my iPad while cooking.

It does have some bugs and not everything works like it's supposed to. If I text to share a recipe, it doesn't share the recipe but the website I got it from. So any notes or tweaks are lost and they can't easily put the recipe in their own MyRecipeBook. Sometimes when going to a website, it doesn't import well. Sometimes the loading bar never finishes, so you can't import, even manually.

In future, I would to be able to make a note from the iPhone app, as well as fixing functions that don't work properly. I still gave this app five stars, because I love it and hope the developer continues to dedicate time to improving and maintaining it. I use it EVERY time I cook!

Better than any other recipe app

I have been collecting web recipes in Evernote and buying ebooks of cookbooks. Evernote gets strange formatting issues sometimes that you can’t seem to fix without desktop version. And trying to cook with the kindle app is so frustrating with all the formatting quirks and terrible searching functions. So I’ve started compiling everything into this app. It’s a bit tedious by hand but worth its weight in gold for the organization feature. Having timers built in is sweet too so I don’t have to yell, "hey Siri...Hey Siri! set a timer for 15 minutes"
Siri: ok I’ve set a timer for 50 minutes. <insert facepalm here>
4 things I wish for in this app:
Add a prep drop down like the ingredient name so I can choose "chopped, minced, etc..." rather than have 10 different listings of onion as a ingredient. Would also make the grocery list so much cleaner too.
Another would be the ability to bold, highlight, and/or color text in the directions. I have a habit of skipping over ingredients and it would help to make them stand out more.
It would also be nice to tag each direction with estimated time for completion so when making multiple items or meal prep, I can be much more efficient.
The last would be to tag grocery list items to the recipe so if I change my mind while shopping, I don’t accidentally skip something I shouldn’t of or buy something I didn’t need.
