Used to be much better

I have used this app for years and have invested a lot of time to get all my recipes into the app. The last few years, more and more features have stopped working. The special keyboard stopped working when I upgraded to an iPad Pro. I can rarely get the wireless sync to work between my devices. The app does not show up as an option to save to iCloud on any of my devices. You can copy the sqlite file from one device to another manually through itunes, but you lose all the pictures. It would be nice if the iCloud backup worked and if there was a way to move the pictures between devices without using the very flaky wireless transfer.
If you don’t need to move the recipes between devices, it works great. I still love the app for recipes. It is pretty easy to type in recipes or to copy them off the internet. But I want to easily transfer the recipes from my iPad to iPhone. It would also be nice if there was a way to view and enter the recipes from a computer.

Needs Fixing-PLEASE - 1/2 ⭐️Rating Honestly

⚠️Don’t waste your time on this until it’s fixed!
I loved this app when I first downloaded it several years ago and happily rated it 5 ⭐️'s. Now, unfortunately, you cannot CONTACT the developer via their link. I’ve made plenty of “Bug Reports” but it’s obvious that’s now a waste of time. The IMPORT feature and the COPY feature are not working well at all. The Import I've always found temperamental but the Copy feature at least allowed me to capture the recipe. Now, can’t do that at all :( When copying, via the Add(+)/Search Recipe feature, a red check appears denoting that the Ingredients, Directions, etc have been copied to your recipe, only to find once this tedious step by step process has been completed the recipe you thought was saved is not there at all-frustrating and a waste of time. It’s just beyond frustrating now as don’t know what to do? Do I now switch APPS and retype all the recipes already saved on this APP? Kathleen, fix, this APP please. I have too many recipes in my Recipe Box to do this all over again. This was a really great APP when it worked. Would love to have it functional again-VERY VERY SOON.

Figured it out

I’ve used the iPad version for years. The only problem I had was the instant import feature, but realized it was the recipe source web site that was the problem, not the app (some sources worked well, others didn’t). Then I found this app in the App Store. Thought it would be great to be able to sync my recipes between devices and with friends. Well, it didn’t work. Tried many times. Rebooted both devices. Still wouldn’t. It got to the point where the devices would display the Ready to Send/Receive then just hang there. Checked WiFi on both devices. They were the same. Then, on a hunch, I changed the WiFi from the extender I was using to the main router on both devices. Bingo. Worked great. Don’t know if it’s coincidence or if it was the problem, but it worked. I’ve saved myself from re-entering all my recipes in a different app. Hope the developer puts out an update mentioning this or changes something to make it work with a WiFi extender.
