  • Wow. You people nailed it.

    This app is phenomenal. I was brainstorming features I would want in a recipe, meal, and shopping list planner app of my own creation when I came across this app. To see each idea and more come to life in a sleek, well-designed, intuitive, and powerful manner in this app was euphoric. It is better than I could have ever dreamed of! Everything I wanted and more. Good price made it more attractive than other apps. I love the abilities to import recipes from pictures, other recipe formats, and file types. The user interface was easy to grasp and follow even on my first recipe import. I would love to see some sort of bulk import (API?) in the future, but most of my saved recipes are pictures anyway. I’m not sure if there is some sort of syncing family plan where recipes, plans, and lists can be synced between linked user accounts or devices, but that would be awesome too. Lots of praise and kudos for this app!!!!

    A recipe/meal planner app without nutrition analyzer? What?! How can you even call this a meal planner app when it doesn’t analyze recipes/ingredients for nutrition info? That’s what meal planning is all about. I guess you can paste in the nutritional content, but that means I either A) Have to upload recipes from the internet that already have that detail AND I can’t deviate from the recipe (like change ingredients to make it healthier) or B) I have to upload it to another app (like MyFitnessPal) to first work out the recipe the way I want it and then upload it to this app and then manually enter the nutritional info. Goodness forbid I should want to add a physical paper/book recipe. I’d have to take the extra step of manually adding that to another app (painstaking) to get the nutritional first. I’m disappointed that I paid money for this. I wish I could get the money back and never see this app again. In this day and age, I cannot believe they haven’t linked up to a food database for REAL cookbook and meal planning abilities.
  • Must have app

    By Phnguy21
    This is the first app that I saw allowing access to recipes offline. It’s super easy to copy any recipe to this platform. Love, love, love this app. This has made my life so much easier!
  • Pretty good app, but with some serious flaws

    By Reanm8or
    This is a great app for viewing and storing recipes! My only gripe is that these days many people use kindle and PDF’s for recipes and this app doesn’t have easy functionality for adding steps to each recipe. Great app overall, but has some some important drawbacks. Hence only a 3 star review for me.
  • Best App for Recipes

    By Veronica Combs
    I have put off making a review for far too long on this app. This app is amazing. I have downloaded almost every single recipe app and none of them compare at all to this one. It is so easy to use. The drop down menus, scrolling and changing pages happens fast and smooth. The font, graphics and layouts is truly appealing to the eyes. It makes you want to cook. Here are some of my favorite features. Leftovers 🥦🍅🧀🍐🥔 You can search leftover ingredients that you have and it will bring up the recipes that include these ingredients, perfect when you’re tired to think of what to make. Favorites ❤️ It helps so much to come up with ideas of what to cook using your favorites. You can search the main foods/ingredients you have and just like the leftovers, it’ll pull up all the recipes with your ingredients and you can go through and heart your favorites. Under the favorites tag you have a gorgeous list of your recipes. Now you’re ready, you have meal ideas with the foods you’ll actually use that week, and will feel prepared with a ton of your recipes and inspiration to cook! Meal Planner 🍽 If you’re into details, then the meal planner covers that. You can set as many recipes to your breakfast, lunch, snack, appetizer, dinner and of course dessert 😋🥧 Pictures + Tags 📷 It’s easy to have an image for every recipe so it looks amazing scrolling through them. You can create tags so your collection of recipes are super organized. Scanning 📚 Any paper recipes or screenshots can easily be scanned and added to the app... and for how much? Free. Amazing. I’m impressed by how much the developers have done to improve, improve and improve this app. Download it, give it a chance, try it out and I bet you’re gonna love it. Veronica C
  • Great improvements

    By Kalliana_
    It was a good app, but this new update brought in great improvements. Of all the cooking apps I have tried, this has quickly become my favorite! The only changes I would make are: 1) Ability to add recipes offline, 2) Ability to delete app-native tags and 3) Ability to subtitle some steps.
  • Simply the best!

    By Bobs King
    Simply the best recipe manager I've tried, and I've tried a few!!
  • Thoroughly thought through...

    By sealeduponhisarm
    Storing recipes is getting easier and easier thanks to CookBook! Find a recipe online? Add the link and it brings up the recipe. Trusted recipe in a falling apart magazine? Snap a picture and scan in the recipe with fairly good accuracy. Create your own recipe? Type it in as you go snapping pics for each stage of the recipe. This is a 4 star rating versus 5 because there are some tweaks and small improvements that could be made but I am so happy with it as is. Plus, you get a shopping list created for you when selecting meal plans...really great app.
  • Cooking has gotten easier

  • 😍😍😍

    By min124
    I ❤ this app! It literally does everything but cook the food for you & the cloud storage & super affordable . The new update is awesome!!!! The only downside is that I now need to move over my entire recipe collection of 5,000 + from my previous recipe organizer because this one is just that good 🤗. Thanks for the great work.
