Best online recipe app I’ve used

I’ve really enjoyed using PrePear so far, and am thankful they haven’t completely eliminated the free user option (as has happened to me 2x with other apps). My only quibble is that the iPad app *still* doesn’t have landscape mode, which is the only way I use my iPad when cooking. So I just have to use the desktop mode, and I find that sometimes it freezes or hangs and I have to reload the page to get all my recipes to load. But otherwise I love that you can import recipes from blogs, which works for about 75-80% of the blogs I frequent.

(Developers, please feel free to tell me if I just missed where I can switch to landscape mode in the app!)

Best Recipe/Menu Planning App Out There!

Count me in as a Prepear fanboy!! It’s rare that you can say that an app has changed the way you do things, but that is exactly the case with Prepear. It’s by far the best one out there that collects your recipes and handles your meal plans. I’ve tried a bunch of them - and this one handles what it does so efficiently and effectively. I’ve read a little about the developers, and the app was started by parents who were trying to figure out an easier way to handle meals, recipes, and groceries for their families - so it’s designed with an eye on being super useful and by people who are actively using this and trying to make it better. I’ve been pleased with the app updates so far, and look forward to what they have in store “coming soon”. Sure, it doesn’t have as many of the bells and whistles as other similar apps, but I didn’t find those nearly as intuitive to use - this one just plain works! Love the Prepear Mode when cooking - and the way it handles the pantry and groceries added from the meal plan is really smart. Menu planning is a breeze - and it’s really easy to plug in a menu planning service as well. I use Super Healthy Kids - and it’s changed the way my family eats. If you’ve got picky eaters like me, I don’t know of anything better out there. It’s a game changer. This is one of my most used apps by far, and I very pleased with it!

Updates have ruined the experience

I used to LOVE this app, and have used it for years for meal planning and grocery shopping. It took me *months* to add recipes and modify them the way I use them, but the time investment was generally worth it because of the usefulness of the app, so I was ok with that.
Whatever happened with this new update has completely ruined the experience. They are pushing Prepare Gold so much that I can’t use what I had already invested in my time. Now I have to sign in every time I open the app, navigate too many ads for Prepare Gold to get to what I want, and when I do get there and I can’t get in to my cookbooks at all. On the rare occasion I CAN see my recipes, I can only see pictures of them but not the ingredients. Which means I can’t use it any more to meal plan, create a grocery list, etc. The app is completely useless to me now.
There are Gold advertisements everywhere, which is annoying. I know they want me to buy the full version, but now I don’t want to out of spite.
I’m so disappointed. They had a good product, and now I’m not sure what I’m going to do. All I know is that, because of the way this was handled, I would now rather invest in another program and start from scratch than I would pay for Gold.

Developer Response ,

Hi lilWodar, I am so sorry to hear you have been having troubles with the app since the latest update. I would love to hear more. Can you email me at Some of these bugs you are experiencing have nothing to do with the app update. You should still be able to view your recipes and cookbooks forever. If you are willing to meet with me and get these problems sorted out I will compensate you for your time. Again - I am very sorry for the inconvenience this has caused you. Thank you for using Prepear - I look forward to hearing from you - Brad
