This app has potential and I use it a lot
I really like this app and have used it every week since downloading. There are definitely ways it can be improved but the basic concept is great. I love having the recipe items put in a weekly list so it's easy to see what I will need for the week. It would be much easier to use if you could port recipes in from other sites. I have accidentally erased my weekly menu a few times so I wish you could change the day you start without having to erase the whole week. Lately I ran into a bug where the recipes aren't adding to the menu. Hopefully that gets fixed soon or I can't use the app.
Love this app... I use this every week to generate the family menu. I don't actually use the ingredients/shopping list function but have entered all of our standard dishes into it. Love that I can send a snap shot of the menu board to everyone so they know the plan. Only request would be to be able to sort my recipe list alphabetically. It seems to be based on when it was entered into the list.
I tried many meal planner apps these couple of days. I needed an app where I can write out what a plan to cook for 1 week and where I can add my own recipes to choose from. This app is great and so simple I love it :)
The only thing is that it only lets you add one dish for each day to the “menu” page... where I would like to be able to add the main dish and a salad. But that’s not a big deal. Overall very satisfied 👍🏻.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
