Disappointed long term customer


Update: support helped me figure out how to access my recipes that they still had in my account (by signing up for the monthly subscription, synced, then cancelled my subscription. This was their idea, not mine.). I changed my review to a 3⭐️ since I have my data back. I still think it's a cool app, especially for busy moms who cook a lot, but I can't justify the monthly cost for it at this stage of my life.
Original post edited: I've been a Cook'n customer for years. Paid for the desk top version then later paid for an upgrade (2011). When mobile came out they synced my recipes and I've been happily using the mobile version for years. Got a new phone and the app wouldn't synchronize to my account. Contacted support and they can't find my email or account in their system. Pulled up app on my old phone, confirmed my email address was there and magically, support found me. BUT! They won't allow me to synchronize my recipes unless I subscribe. $5-$10/mo to store my recipes??!!

To be clear, you can keep using the Cook'n product forever without paying anything more. Upgrades and optional services like Cloud Storage & Sync services, tech support services, and other web services like unlimited Capture and Scan are available to subscribers only but these upgrades and services are totally optional. This new business model is more affordable than the last! In the past, Cook'n users had to pay $64.95 to get the newest Cook'n upgrade...but now members can get upgrades for only $4.95! Considering that Cook'n X3 is coming out next month, this will represent a huge savings for you and many others!

Love the app but need help with a problem.


I bought the pc version years ago. Can no longer use it cause of other problems with my laptop. But was excited that i have the app on my ipad. But the last few times i have tried to use it to put recipes from family members my contents pages are all jumbled and i cannot read them . The contents lists are lots of missing words and lots of words on top of one another. Unreadable . Need to know what i can do to fix this . Or is it a fix Cook N needs to fix. Thanks and love to hear an answer soon. I thought about deleting the app and reinstalling but afraid i will lose a whole lot of family recipes . Thanking you in advance Will give bigger rating once i get help. I paid 60 dollars for the software several years ago .. it is of no use to me on laptop anymore , enough said.

Hello linlee47. I am sorry to hear that you are having problems with your laptop. I am glad that a backup of your valuable family recipe collection was saved in the Cook'n Cloud and available to you on your iPad! I'm not sure what you mean when you say "my contents pages are all jumbled and i cannot read them." I don't have any reports of a problem like this and can't really imagine what you are seeing. However, I would really like to help you with this problem. In order for me to provide the best possible service, please click to and upload a screenshot so we can help you.

Clunky and poor support and a rip off


This is an update as the developer commented on my review.
I wrote this review over a year ago and everything I said in the review was true at that time. It took the developers over a year to respond to my review. Since then they have fixed the sync problem and it works very well. They reduced the price for the cloud service. However, I am still not happy that they charge for the cloud service which was introduced over a year ago and was included with the price of my PC version of Cook’n. Then after I paid for the PC version they started charging for a feature that was already included. Still not happy with that.
I will raise the stars to 3 as long as the user knows they have to pay about $5 a month to sync with your other devices.

Sync takes all night and must leave app open with screen on or sync fails.
Sync fails 50% of the time.
Support is very slow and not very friendly.
Update: sync was finally fixed and in the next update the sync feature was taken away unless you pay $120 a year more!! Outrageous. Rip off

Developer Response

This is not quite right. The optional sync service is only $49.95 per year, not $120. Sync never fails and it is super fast. And, tech support is super responsive and super friendly. I wish we could provide Cloud & web services for free. If we could we would. But, unfortunately, we can't afford that. We must pay a fee each month to store your recipe data in the cloud and all those food photos take up a lot of space! We must pay for every read and write operation too which means that every time you sync to the Cloud, it costs us money. Every month, these Cloud costs grow higher and higher. The Cook'n app for iOS that you are referring to is free. There are no ads in the app. The programmers who provide this service and who created this amazing app for you don't work for free. They expect to get a paycheck every week. We don't get tax money or donations to pay our bills. We would like to offer sync service for free but if we did that...who would pay the bills?
