Used to be great but no longer appears to be supported. “Instant Import” feature no longer works. I am getting a different app. Used to love this one.
GrandyRen's Review of The Recipe BoxReviewed on 9/20/18 5:50 PM
UPDATE: After a couple of years with problems on this app and no updates forthcoming I was going to contact the developer to see what was going on. I clicked on app support and then on contact and I don’t get any way to contact them. It simply says site under review and “sorry” for the inconvenience. This tells me there is a major problem here. From what I have seen with other apps I fear this one no longer wishes to keep this app going. When that happens they do no more updates and sooner or later it doesn’t meet the requirements of the updates on ios that Apple puts out. Then you find you can no longer even enter that app. If this happens with this app it would appear you would no longer be able to access your recipes. So I would suggest if you currently have this app that you should have a backup somewhere of all your recipes. Especially if they are your own family recipes and not ones you found online. And I would suggest if you don’t have this app that you don’t bother with this one and keep looking. And when you find one, be sure to keep a hard copy of your recipes for when another developer decides to walk away. PREVIOUS POSTING: The problems continue with this app and there is no sign of the developers’ willingness to fix the issues therefore I am downgrading my review. I would give it a zero if I could. I now find that some of the buttons do not work. A while ago I noticed the temperature/degree button was not working but today when I went to edit a recipe I found the fraction buttons didn’t work either. I just get a blank space when I hit the fraction button. I am currently searching for a new app and if anyone has found one that works well I would love to hear what it is. Previous review: I have had this app for a number of years now. This past year though the instant import function has ceased working, except on the rarest of occasions. I have complained a few times to no avail. Also a more recent change has excluded the ability to text a recipe. Emailing the recipe has been the only choice. I also dislike that I can no longer edit a recipe when I am in the recipe itself. If I see a problem or want to adapt a recipe while I am looking at it why do I have to exit and go to the recipe list to click the edit button? That was a really annoying change. I don't know what is going on here but I am going to drop this app soon if they don't get on the ball and fix it. Several months ago I stopped recommending it to my friends. I do like the ease of using my recipes but that can be done with many apps. The best parts for me were always the instant imports and the ease of forwarding my recipes to others when it was requested. Sadly, with these being unavailable it is just an ordinary recipe box.

Lovemyfarm's Review of The Recipe BoxReviewed on 9/19/18 4:05 PM
Sometime awhile back , must have been update, but the number keys & short cuts for cup, tblsp, oz , etc will not work on my new iPad. So makes me work harder in having to use my keypad and spell out tblsp, cup, oz, etc. I use to love that quick short cut, but stopped working. Wish I knew why it won't work anymore and why no one else seems to have that problem, unless I'm suppose to press something to make them work. I'm scratching my head over this problem. But I do love this app.

less frustrated's Review of The Recipe BoxReviewed on 8/9/18 4:24 AM
I have been using this app for years but hate it when it sticks and I’m unable to scroll through the entire recipe. I have often abandoned recipes because I have not been able to see the entire thing. Well tonight I just figured out that if I go to the email icon, I can see the entire recipe. It is not as nicely displayed as on the main part of the site but is is usable. I hope this helps some with this same frustrating problem.
I heart I Pad's Review of The Recipe BoxReviewed on 8/5/18 12:48 AM
Very disappointed. There is no consistency to uploading. 99% of the uploads fail. And when I report the bug, there is never a resolution. Further, I deleted the app because I think there is a virus in the app that corrupted my iPad. And lost all of the recipes I loaded. Don’t waste your money.
Hats2012's Review of The Recipe BoxReviewed on 8/30/19 2:02 PM
I have used this app for years and absolutely love it when it works. However, the Instant Import only works on a few sites. Very frustrating to see it's available, then the crash report showed up. Sure wish they would review their sites,and remove those that don't work. Very frustrating to have to highlight, and then click ingredients, descriptions, etc. If all worked it would be a 5!
BellaCanto's Review of The Recipe BoxReviewed on 8/30/19 2:02 PM
Love this app. I have tried others but this one has so many perks, like printing a grocery list for the items you need to buy. And in most cases, being able to import a recipe from a website. Even enter your own recipes, take a pic of the food and paste into the photo area. Love all of it.

Jellybean015's Review of The Recipe BoxReviewed on 8/30/19 2:02 PM
I have been using this app for years and was very happy with it. Now it is not nearly as useful but how do I transfer all the recipes I have? There is no way to contact support. The last update somehow no longer shows, when opening a recipe, the picture, source of recipe and how many it serves. And you can no longer ‘instant import’, does not work on any site, even those it used to. Bring back the way it was!

Long Tim's Review of The Recipe BoxReviewed on 8/30/19 2:02 PM
This used to be my favorite app and to prove it I have about 3,000 recipes stored on it. It has become so buggy and the features I liked most don’t work anymore. Support has become nonexistent. Does anyone know of a good alternative app I can get without it being a pain in the butt to transfer my 3,000 recipes to? I have spent so much time putting all of my recipes in and now there isn’t even a backup function anymore. I need to do something before everything is lost. Please help! There’s no one I can turn to since they no longer support it.

The app refuses to link with America’s Test kitchen. This app is almost worthless if you can’t download recipes.
TarJar's Review of The Recipe BoxReviewed on 8/30/19 2:02 PM
I have had this recipe app for many years. The only problem is I’m wondering if there is support? Reason I ask is because I have sent in a bug report many times (for instant copying a recipe) and haven’t heard a word :( Also, the degrees symbol doesn’t work. Otherwise, I love this app and continue to use it all the time.

Chocoholics forever's Review of The Recipe BoxReviewed on 8/30/19 2:02 PM
I still use the ap, but lately when using the keyboard of the app, whatever is selected doesn’t work unless you press many times and then it work and you end up with many of the item selected. Because of this, I have looked for other apps even though I have so many recipes in the app. I don’t think the ap has been updated in a long time. That is another reason I am looking for something new.

Fanoflyfe's Review of The Recipe BoxReviewed on 8/30/19 2:02 PM
I can’t describe just how much I love this app. It’s where I place all my online recipes for an easy and fast way to find what I’m looking for. I just recently noticed that there haven’t been any updates in the past few years. I sincerely hope it hasn’t been given up on. I’d hate to lose all the recipes (not to mention time) I’ve added to it. Please update, if possible.
rillbizi's Review of The Recipe BoxReviewed on 8/30/19 2:02 PM
I have been using this app for around 7 years and in the beginning it was great. It had instant imports and was really easy to use. Now they have stopped supporting it and there is only one recipe website that will instantly import (allrecipes.com) that I know of. Now the only way to input a recipe is to manually put it in or to copy, cut & paste. Bummer man. Still it is the one of the better ones out there and that is really sad.

Dvcospgs's Review of The Recipe BoxReviewed on 8/29/18 12:04 PM
This is the best recipe app I’ve found, but it looks like it has been abandoned, so in my opinion it’s only a matter of time before it no longer works. I’ve had it for years, and am still using it, but I know I’m just one iPad upgrade away from it not opening. It hasn’t been upgraded in two years.
coffee me's Review of The Recipe BoxReviewed on 8/28/18 3:24 PM
Don’t waste your time! This was one of the best early recipe apps out there. I have collected over 2300 recipes on the app and used to recommend it to friends. I am not sure if the developers stopped putting energy into this, but in the past few years it has lost quite a bit of functionality and has not added any new features. I haven’t been able to auto import a recipe in more than a year without an error message (you can still import manually) and the direct sharing/synching of recipes between ipads/iphones no longer works. I buy a new iPad and iPhone every 2-3 years, so I know that it is not because my equipment is old. I am in the process of looking at other apps to transfer my recipes to. Unfortunate that I have wasted so much time on this app. :(
kiz2015's Review of The Recipe BoxReviewed on 8/25/18 10:17 PM
This is a great app, but it hasn’t been updated since iOS9. Surprised it works on iOS11 at all. Will keep using it, but like others posters, I’m going to have to back my recipes up to print/PDF in case it stops working with the next update. It’s not even worth trying to find another app to replace it. I don’t have to time to build recipe files from the ground up, only to have to start all over when the developer loses interest.
Patpro92's Review of The Recipe BoxReviewed on 8/14/18 3:44 PM
This app is so frustrating when Iam on a recipe & in the middle of making the meal the app freezes up. I have to turn off my iPad & turn it back on to get it to work again. I go to the website for help & they say they are sorry for the inconvenience, but they are under repair for several days. Had a recipe all typed in & ready to Save & your s***** app froze up again. I had to turn off my iPad & turn it back on to open my iPad & re open the website. If I did not have so many recipes on this app I would delete it!
Enystawolfofdeath's Review of The Recipe BoxReviewed on 8/14/18 2:45 PM
I’ve been using this app for years now and I love it. It is very convenient when copying a recipe straight from a web page, and it’s way easier and takes up less space than copying recipes into a word processor. So over the years I’ve used it tons. My biggest fear in our digitized world is saving digital versions of my recipes and then losing them all. I’ve gotten burned from other apps who suddenly stopped issuing updates until eventually the iOS updates rendered the app no longer accessible on my device. Backups are worthless if the app becomes incapacitated and will no longer run to open them. I just finished loading a handful of new recipes into my The Recipe Box app and it occurred to me that if I don’t find a way to make viewable backup copies of all my recipes (literally 1000s!) I may wake up after an iOS update one day and realize my worst fear has come true. I popped into the App Store just now and was surprised to see that there has been no update for 2 years! PANIC! This isn’t a video game app that doesn’t matter. These are cherished recipes that will hopefully be passed down to our daughters. All that I ask is for the developers to understand the significance of how we use this app and if they choose to stop putting time into keeping it updated, have the courtesy, and decency, to give us all plenty of advanced notice so that we may salvage our files before we lose all access to them. It would also be kind to allow us to easily transfer all our recipes files into another storage app such as Box, or docs to go, or even into a new recipe app, anything other than being forced to email them individually to ourselves which would be a nightmare. Just please don’t brush this off and forget that we can lose everything we put immeasurable amounts of time into saving. Understand that most of our recipes, if they get lost, we may never get back. PLEASE do the right thing.
Cs100's Review of The Recipe BoxReviewed on 7/22/18 12:39 PM
This used to be a great app but it has declined. No updates recently and not all functionality works. Move on if you are looking for an app. I agree with others - I think outdated, not updated/supported apps should look different in search results.
Costwriter's Review of The Recipe BoxReviewed on 6/5/18 2:38 AM
Noticed that no one has rated this app in quite awhile. It’s now even worse than when I originally posted this review. Practically impossible to enter new recipes as the fractions and abbreviations aren’t live. Supposedly my recipes are now backed up on iTunes, but can’t access them. If you’re considering this app, move on. Was really loving this app. Even raved about it friends. Now it won't load. Contacted customer service and no response. I'm afraid to delete and reload cause I might lose all my recipes. Could downloading the iPhone version allow me to find my recipes? Hate to have to pay again for the same app as I'm not really interested in having it on my phone.
SLK-S's Review of The Recipe BoxReviewed on 6/25/18 7:13 PM
It has been a year or more since I have been able to export a recipe from any site. The secondary keyboard used for typing ingredients doesn’t work either. I have submitted numerous “bug fix” reports to the developer, and have never received a response. Unfortunately, I have many recipes on this app. I was never able to back up on ITunes per the instructions so I fear losing many recipes. I would like to know if this developer is still in business.

Used to love this site - have used it for several years - but keep having additional problems. The degree symbol is an “x” instead of a circle and now none of the fractions work! Very disappointed!! It will also only import about half the time even when using their list of recipe sites. I now have to find a new home for my hundreds of recipes.
bumblebm's Review of The Recipe BoxReviewed on 4/25/18 11:53 AM
I love the ability to organize all my recipes in one place. The abbreviations in the typing section make it easy to type in all those family recipes. The ability to go on the net and download any recipe you see in a magazine is great. Just one problem. The Instant Import function works only when it feels like it. Cut and paste only woks well on simple recipes. When they involve long ingredient lists and multiple steps, dragging the copy line while scrolling is a bear, especially if there are ads in the way. The developers need to fix this.
rillbizi's Review of The Recipe BoxReviewed on 3/9/18 6:08 PM
I really love this app except for the fact that the “instant import” has stopped working on most recipe sites like Food Network (doesn’t work at all) and on Taste of Home doesn’t do it properly. The degree symbol no longer works and and a good portion of the time the on-screen keyboard fractions either doesn’t work or makes the fraction and anything following it too small to read. Hey guys! Let’s take care of the problems with another version, please.
Emarksmi's Review of The Recipe BoxReviewed on 3/20/18 1:22 PM

This is mostly a good app. I use it frequently and have many recipes stored, so I'd hate to try to replace it. It syncs with my phone and imports fairly easily. My big issue, and it is BIG, is that there is apparently no support any longer. The support site is "under repair" and others report that it will stay that way. What a shame.

katileigh's Review of The Recipe BoxReviewed on 12/5/17 1:08 PM
Update: Dec 2017: Recently I bought a new iPad, and copied over the apps I like the most. This is among them. But, the support is still uncertain, and the process for bringing over the recipes from the old iPad is slow and puzzling. It seems like a variation on air drop, but without user feedback. Is it actually happening? There is no progress report or a list of recipes showing up on the sharing window to let you know that something is happening. Functionality has not been enhanced in a while--why no ability to scale a recipe up or down? 2015: I have been using this app for months, and find it the best of the recipe database apps I have tried. But lately it has become unstable (IOS upgrade?) and it doesn't seem that fixes are forthcoming. The "instant import" function used to work seamlessly, but now often throws an error code even for such stalwart sites as Bon Appetit. Sometimes it just crashes in the middle of a session, another annoyance. Others have reported a diminishment of support. So I wonder--where are you guys? You built a good thing... Have you abandoned your users?

Darlene02's Review of The Recipe BoxReviewed on 12/3/17 3:15 PM
12/3/17 (The Dream Log app is now working. I'll be moving my data elsewhere. Thank you for fixing it.) UPDATE December 3, 2017: The developer has another app, The Dream Log, which can no longer be accessed because they stopped doing critical updates. As you can see from other reviews, this app is having issues, too. Do not purchase either app from this developer. They have no problem taking your money, but can't be bothered to keep up with the app required updates. UPDATE June 20, 2015: With the most recent upgrade, I can now access my recipes. Thank you! I will continue to use this app, but will also store my recipes on my computer. UPDATE Feb 14, 2015: Tech support in non-existence. I have not been able to get to my recipes since my post above, about several months now. I am very UNHAPPY. I will no longer use an app to store my recipes. From now on, I will store them on my computer, just like I used to do. I loved this application. It stopped working after I installed the recent update. I hope they fix it soon. This is the second day that I can't get to my recipes. :-(

I have used this app for a number of years, but I am now very frustrated that the Instant Import feature rarely works. To me that was the best feature, and I miss it. I don't see any responses from the developers regarding this issue. I looked at the list provided on the app support page, and many no longer work, e.g. Taste of Home. The entire recipe imports into the Ingredients column.

I have been using this app for years and loved it. I have all my recipes on it! But as other reviewers have pointed out, the newer updates have ruined it.

This once great app use to be updated on a regular basis. Recipe Box has not had an update for the iPhone since December of 2015. The iPad update is almost just as old. The app's developer has apparently abandoned any further updates, so don't waste your time and money on it. Biggest complaint is that the app will no longer import recipes from the web, or share recipes between devices. This gets very frustrating! New mission, to find a replacement and transfer recipes. Then delete this worthless app off my devices.

I like this app and use it frequently to access my recipes, especially when I'm shopping. But, one of the things I liked best, which was being able to import recipes from the web no longer works. Every time I try to import a recipe, it crashes. Even when I copy it "bit by bit", I have to keep saving and editing it so that I don't lose everything when it decides to crash again! I agree with the other reviews..there is no support! Wish there was a better way ! I have sent too many 'bug reports' to even count and I never get a reply. If I didn't already have a lot of recipes on this app, I would change. Don't buy it! There's got to be a better one out there.

In addition when I go to contact someone it says the site is under renovation. So beware this app does not seem to be working as it used to-like it is no longer being supported by the developers.
Cindi 910's Review of The Recipe BoxReviewed on 12/16/18 1:16 PM
I have used this app for several years but lately I've become very frustrated. The "instant import" never works and nobody replies to my "bug reports", which used to always happen promptly. As others have written, the recipe page often freezes up so I can't scroll through my recipe. I hope they will fix these problems. Since my recipes are all on this, it would be a real disappointment to have to give it up.

It used to be my go to app. Not any more. Unable to import or share recipes!
Ms.Mayhem's Review of The Recipe BoxReviewed on 12/16/18 1:16 PM
I love this app. I cook a lot. I now have all my recipes loaded and have done away with my card file. It makes searching the web and down loading, editing, creating shopping lists, sharing and sorting recipes so easy. Best of all I can take everything with me so when I change my mind on whats for dinner, it makes it quick to put a new shopping list together. The only added feature would be having a way to double or triple the recipe without having to do the math yourself. I cook for large groups at the time of anywhere from 20-50 people and having an initial scaling would be awesome. But I am likely the exception to the rule here as this is not a common need, so I live with a calculator.
Insynker's Review of The Recipe BoxReviewed on 12/16/18 1:16 PM
Has steadily gone down hill. Crashes, cannot import, etc. The worst is the inclusion of ads for products in the recipe. No not buy this app unless it gets back to the old days.
CT REVIEWER's Review of The Recipe BoxReviewed on 12/16/18 1:16 PM
Been using this app since late 2013. It was totally awesome until Jan.2016 when they did an update and since then, they are not fixing their bugs. They won't answer emails either. I have issues with editing photo via camera and they used to have the oven degree symbol which no longer works. It comes up with an X instead of that degree symbol. This is a great recipe app that I really love except the developer is not maintaining it. I hope that I don't lose my recipes in the future and have to start all over again.

After updating the IOS, the app won't open. App website offers to support.
Mrs. Mary Francis's Review of The Recipe BoxReviewed on 12/16/18 1:16 PM
This app is really well thought out. It has all the features I need to keep my kitchen running smoothly, from finding what to cook, to shopping, to preparing. I can access my recipes even when I'm not online and my collection is totally private. I love being able to share with my friends and family, too!
MyLittleTerror212's Review of The Recipe BoxReviewed on 12/16/18 1:16 PM
The best recipe app I've tried. I love that my family can email recipes to me from their Recipe Box and I can import it right to mine!

Love this app especially with all the online sources...sold this app to many people including mother in law. Only wish is they include Pintrest
Woolfran's Review of The Recipe BoxReviewed on 12/16/18 1:16 PM
Love this app. I did notice lately that some "instant imports" didn't perform but the manual import is fine. For those who miss the picture, editing etc. on the ingredients/directions page, if you tap the title of the recipe it drops down to reveal the picture and other features.
Leit55's Review of The Recipe BoxReviewed on 12/16/18 1:16 PM
I used to love this app, but in the past 1 1/2 years, it's become more jumpy and adding recipes is laborious. I've updated my iOS and the app, but it still stalls. Time to look for a new recipe app.
Twin1's Review of The Recipe BoxReviewed on 12/16/18 1:16 PM
I bought an IPad Pro, and backed up before I transferred my content to the Pro. Upon checking my apps, My Recipe Box was empty and I had so many excellent recipes in there, now they are gone. I am hoping they are somewhere that I can still retrieve them.

Transferring recipes into this app makes saving recipes a breeze!
HudsonDL's Review of The Recipe BoxReviewed on 11/8/17 3:35 AM
Please update as the keypad built into Recipe Box does not work, is it because of the latest iOS update?
Tdef1234566's Review of The Recipe BoxReviewed on 11/5/17 4:21 AM
I loved this app and used it for years, until I had to factory reset my iPad and lost every single recipe I had painstakingly typed in, imported, and modified over the years. Why is there no backup feature? This would be a 5 star app if I hadn't just lost everything, including family recipes I no longer have hard copies of.
Huskiebob's Review of The Recipe BoxReviewed on 11/28/17 2:34 PM
RB used to be a phenomenal app. Now, I’m wondering if it’s still supported. My last several attempts to use Instant Import have failed. When I try to contact Support on the website, I get an “Under Repair” message. Please let us know what’s going on!
Madonna N.'s Review of The Recipe BoxReviewed on 11/21/17 1:59 PM
This app fulfills every requirement I was looking for in a recipe app. In fact, I plan on opening a café with the kitchen using this app. It’s that good. HOWEVER, I can’t recommend it until you see an updated version dated after this review on 11/21/17. Ever since iOS11 came out, this app is usable but very glitchy. I use the app so often that I look several times a week in my updated apps file to see if it has been. Still waiting.

Bought it today and started to add my first recipe and the special keyboard does not work at all. IPad iOS 12.0.1
GrandyRen's Review of The Recipe BoxReviewed on 11/16/17 2:14 PM
The problems continue with this app and there is no sign of the developers’ willingness to fix the issues therefore I am downgrading my review. I would give it a zero if I could. I now find that some of the buttons do not work. A while ago I noticed the temperature/degree button was not working but today when I went to edit a recipe I found the fraction buttons didn’t work either. I just get a blank space when I hit the fraction button. I am currently searching for a new app and if anyone has found one that works well I would love to hear what it is. Previous review: I have had this app for a number of years now. This past year though the instant import function has ceased working, except on the rarest of occasions. I have complained a few times to no avail. Also a more recent change has excluded the ability to text a recipe. Emailing the recipe has been the only choice. I also dislike that I can no longer edit a recipe when I am in the recipe itself. If I see a problem or want to adapt a recipe while I am looking at it why do I have to exit and go to the recipe list to click the edit button? That was a really annoying change. I don't know what is going on here but I am going to drop this app soon if they don't get on the ball and fix it. Several months ago I stopped recommending it to my friends. I do like the ease of using my recipes but that can be done with many apps. The best parts for me were always the instant imports and the ease of forwarding my recipes to others when it was requested. Sadly, with these being unavailable it is just an ordinary recipe box.

I need an app that I can write out my recipes. I can not get the keyboard to work. No help. Site is down for me to contact. Would like a refund please. No stars
LeBeej's Review of The Recipe BoxReviewed on 11/12/17 3:58 PM
Great for offline entry or viewing. A waste of time and added frustration to search for or capture a recipe. Does not work properly nine times out of ten. Reporting errors does not seem to improve the situation.
Fisherman100000's Review of The Recipe BoxReviewed on 10/8/18 4:25 PM
The pre-filled keyboard (1/4, 1/2, med., lrg., cup, etc) are very buggy. Sometimes they work, sometimes they don’t. When they do work they are often in a very small font (maybe 4pt.) while typed items are much larger font. Otherwise they app is OK.
Agnt9nine's Review of The Recipe BoxReviewed on 10/7/18 8:02 PM
Loved this app when I first got it years ago. It has not been updated and now crashes all the time. Currently looking for an app to replace this one and transfer my recipes before crashes permanently with my recipes being unrecoverable.
Wurdlov's Review of The Recipe BoxReviewed on 10/29/17 1:39 PM
I’ve had this app for years and have parked almost all my best recipes here. Now it barely functions. Instant import does not work, specialized keyboard does not work, I can no longer view the ingredients and the instructions at the same time, etc. I always install updates. What has happened to one of my all time favorite apps? I’ll be burned if I have to move all my collected recipes to a new app. I tried to email rather than put this in a review, but, surprise, that wasn’t working either. Please, please get this fixed!
Dallasokie's Review of The Recipe BoxReviewed on 10/24/17 3:29 PM
In the past, I would have given this app 5 stars. But now I can’t email recipes to friends when they ask for them. I get an error message. And, when you go to support, it always says, “sorry, under construction”. So they don’t want to help you with anything outside of their listed FAQs.
cdcjr36's Review of The Recipe BoxReviewed on 10/2/18 3:37 AM
Please update the app! We paid money for it, it should work properly! Can’t email recipes! I would love to give it 4stars, or even 5 but it’s acting wacky since I updated my iPad to iOS 12!
KelliMullins's Review of The Recipe BoxReviewed on 1/30/18 12:35 AM
I love this app
PeopleAreGreat's Review of The Recipe BoxReviewed on 1/25/18 7:31 PM
Developer has stopped supporting the app in particular the function of instant import is no longer working. I have contacted the developer on several occasions with no replies from her. Broken over a year now!
Bea Otch's Review of The Recipe BoxReviewed on 1/21/18 5:40 PM
This app has become difficult to use. Can’t get any recipes without cutting and pasting. Very difficult to makes changes to a recipe once I have it saved. Have to email all recipes to myself because I’ve had the app freeze up on me when I need a recipe. If I want the app on my iPhone as well as my iPad I have to download and pay twice.. and then of course put all recipes on a second time. Please fix.
Lava Gee's Review of The Recipe BoxReviewed on 1/19/18 4:13 PM
At one time this was my dream app for recipes.....5 stars easily; however, apparently it is no longer being supported. Why is it still being sold here?
Fallen night's Review of The Recipe BoxReviewed on 1/1/18 3:54 PM
I have had this app for ever, actually like it. Recently I had to reset my iPad and when I reinstalled my this app all the recipes that I had gathered and kept are gone. Have tried to contact the developer with no luck. Website in "under construction" I even Facebook messaged them. NOTHING! So disappointed! NO STARS!
