Best personal recipe app yet

First off, I am amazed the developer isn’t charging for this app. I have played with several similar apps and haven’t liked any nearly as much, even though a few were more feature laden. I use Recipebox to manually input and share recipes, and to import occasional recipes via url. My brother and I both have smokers, live on opposite sides of the country, and were looking for an easy way to share what we do, have tried, and would like to try. This fills the bill. It took a little playing with it to get used to and we are still figuring it out. I have found that sometimes, after a url import, the recipe doesn’t appear until I restart the app. It might be a function of the web page being visited. For example, if I import a recipe from King Arthur, it appears immediately. When I imported a recipe from a site with a lot of text before the recipe, and once when I shared a recipe with another RecipeBox user (once in several shares), the addition only appeared after restarting the app. A minor issue and I am still not convinced it might have been something I did. The developer appears to be actively engaged in development and I look forward to seeing what the future brings.

Love this App!

Love this app so far! So easy to find recipes and keep them organized for quick review! I’m notorious for screenshotting recipes online and saving them in my camera roll, in which they promptly get lost forever. I love you can port the URL straight from the website into your recipe box. Only suggestion I would make on that front is if there is some way it could intuitively pull only the recipe itself and format it as a recipe card. Currently it just brings up the website itself which is usually a blog so I end up having to scroll and scroll forever to get to the recipe at the bottom. This would also keep the recipe if the website ever goes down or is taken down. I still love it though and it works for now. My last hope is someday integrating with Instacart or one of those online shopping modules so busy mamas like me can port the ingredients straight over to a shopping list and order my groceries. That would be a dream!! Other than those two suggestions I absolutely LOVE this app and it is making my meal planning SO much easier!

Wish I would have found this years ago

This app is awesome. I’ve never took the time to review an app before, but I had to for this one. You can enter in your personal recipes and it keeps it organized. You can also import other people’s recipes that you found online by just copying and pasting the URL. I really like that you can separate all of your recipes into different categories and even add them to multiple categories. It makes it easy to find what you are looking for. For me, the best part is being able to take recipes that you imported from online, tweak them, and then save it. I always tweak recipes to how I like it or to what ingredients I usually have on hand. In the past, I would change up a recipe and like it, but the next time I cooked it I couldn’t remember what I changed. This fixed that problem for me. And no more writing down recipes and losing them in the drawer.
