Great for Meal Planning

I'm loving the recently upgraded features in Big Oven. I used to have recipes in multiple places because of the copyright restrictions in Big Oven. Now I can pull in multiple recipes from other sites on the web. Now that I have all recipes in one location, meal planning is easy. I love the meal planner feature and that I can pull ingredients straight into my grocery list. I also noticed that the ingredients are portioned according to serving size needed so if the recipe serving size is for 4 but I'm only serving for 2, all ingredient portions are cut in half, great idea!

One feature that needs to be added though is the ability to print your grocery list right from the app. Right now I have to email the list to myself, and then print.

Big Oven Free Version

I had high hopes for this app. Appears well thought out and has helpful features. However, when testing the free version, I found it to be extremely buggy. The ingredients list creates duplicate items on its own and changes the ingredient amounts from cups to ml & grams within the same recipe. It capitalizes words in odd places on its own, making the ingredients list inconsistent in appearance and won't hold the information when changed. After entering the instructions and saving the entry, the instructions disappear. Despite trying it 5 times, it never did capture and hold the correct information. Capturing recipes from the web is nearly impossible because the information doesn't hold. I hope that the paid version works better especially for the outrageous price tag. $20/year! Come on Big Oven, let's be reasonable. In my experience, Big Oven is a Big Disappointment!

I love all the upgrades

I left Big Oven last year because it kept crashing on me... Recently I decided to try!! It's really great! My only critique is that I have a ton of recipes already in my photos app on my iPhone...I wish I could pull those photos right into this app...but I love that I can take a new photo of a paper recipe..I also wish that I could drag and drop menus and recipes on the meal planner...please don't think that I am complaining though... This app is fantastic and is my go to source when planning meals for my family! Thank you for a great tool!
