Switching to Paprika recipe app

Avoid at all costs! This was my favorite recipe app. That was until they emailed to inform they would be holding my recipes hostage after 14 days if I didn't start paying them $36 per year. That's $360 every ten years. Sorry. Nope. I've done a bunch of research and found a TON of better options out there. Many are free, or have free and paid options. AnyList is a great one, but I think the best out there is Paprika. $5 ONCE (for iOS, and $30 once for Mac app. No web app). Syncing is free. AND they have a method (listed on their support pages of their site) of importing all of your Pepperplate recipes from the database file you can get on the Windows version of Pepperplate (ask a friend if you don't have Windows. It's flawless and imported hundreds of my recipes in less than 2 minutes.) I don't pay for subscription-ware and neither should you, especially when it literally has less features then the much cheaper competition.

Was free, not anymore


Do I understand that they need to charge money to keep the business going? Yes.

Do I understand that they replace what was once a free application with a now you have to pay for it to even use get access to your documents? Absolutely not! (And yes, I have gone to the website and downloaded my saved recipes.)

There could have been several different ways that they could of handled this. Keep the free app available for a short time and offer the paid subscription as another separate application. After the short amount of time the free app would no longer get updates and it would of been put to end of life, removing the app from the App Store and leaving the paid application available. People that already downloaded the free app would continue to be able to use it but after a certain number of iOS updates it would stop working due to incompatibles. The recipes for the free app could also be saved locally on the device instead of having to go through a web service.


Keep the subscription service as an available purchase in the app but limit the number of recipes that someone can enter for free.

Best out there

There are a lot of recipe box apps. But not a lot of them have meal planners. This is inexpensive, and does it all. The import feature is amazing, and if you can’t import, you can copy and paste. I’ve been using it for a year and I really have no complaints. It syncs across all my devices, and I have put in 144 recipes. I do wish you could add nutritional info manually but if you can I haven’t figured out how. I guess you could add in notes, but would be nice to have a dedicated box. You can arrange the shopping list according to how you go through the aisles. I use the menu planner than save to shopping list, then add non grocery items. There’s very little you can’t do here.
