Ratings and Reviews

Can be better


I cant find no way to suggest you the option to export recipes from the app into pdf

Great app


I love Zest, it's a brilliant app for storing all my family recipes as well as recipes I find online and want to store for trying later. Almost all the recipes I've tried to import have worked and it's really easy to write your own or add notes to or amend recipes that haven't quite worked or need improvements. The reasons I haven't given it full marks is because I'd like to be able to organise recipes into categories. The tags feature is ok but annoying to have to search every time instead of just tapping on a category. Also you're supposed to be able to set timers and set it to 'cooking mode' so your device won't go to sleep while you're cooking but this doesn't actually seem to be the case. Unless I'm being really stupid and not seeing how to do it?

Fantastic for storing your recipes and cooking from them


I love this app. I love the way I can store recipes from ANY website (or none). The interface is attractive and has a choice of formats for when your are browsing, reading or cooking. The built in timers are brilliant (spotting times within the text of the recipes) and I particularly value the way in which you can have timers from more than one recipe going at a time. I have not used the sync service and it would be good to be able to create shopping lists but if you enjoy really cooking this app is far better than many you have to pay for.
