Completely overhauled, Gourmet Mobile is now a UNIVERSAL app, optimized for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad devices. You can add, edit, scale and import recipes...even when you’re away from your Mac.
But, will it sync?
Absolutely! Use your FREE Mariner Cloud cloud to sync from MacGourmet Deluxe 4. Sync Recipes, Shopping Lists, Wine Notes, Cooking Notes and My Lists. The best part is that syncing is now two-way and incremental. Add a recipe or make a simple edit on your Mac and sync just those additions or changes to your iOS device. Make a change, scale a recipe, or import a new recipe to your iOS device and sync it to your Mac. Simply put - it works both ways. We know how cooks love to share. With the cloud syncing of Gourmet Mobile, you can sync with other Macs and iOS devices.
No Mac app? No problem
You don’t need to have MacGourmet or MacGourmet Deluxe to use all the features of Gourmet Mobile. Find a recipe on the web and easily import it. When you’re shopping and you find that two more are joining you for dinner - don’t worry! You can scale a recipe for the number you need and then go back to the original setting. You can create shopping lists and make and edit notes. In short, you can carry your digital recipe box around with you wherever you go.
Whether you are a foodie or a professional chef, Gourmet Mobile is the perfect app to help you manage and share your recipes!
Other features of Gourmet Mobile include:
• New UI look including themes and colors
• Change font size
• Adding steps to a recipe is optional
• UPC scanner support
• Social media sharing (pending) through Facebook and Twitter
• Edit an Item, Amount, Units, and Aisles of a Shopping List
• Use the Chef’s View for undistracted cooking
• Email or Chat a recipe to a friend
• Search the web for a new recipe and import it to add to your collection
**Note: Your initial sync will sync ALL the recipes in your database to or from your device. This can be a lot of data, especially if your recipes and notes have photos. Subsequent syncs will go much faster, as they sync only the items that have changed. For your initial sync, we recommend disabling the auto lock on your device temporarily, and letting the sync complete overnight, or at another time when you are not using your device.
***Gourmet Mobile is only compatible with MacGourmet Deluxe 4.
What's New in Version 1.1.2
Fixed a display issue on the iPad
In defense of a longstanding app
I've been using Gourmet since it was Macgourmet, and before there even was an iPhone, so about 10 years. The desktop app has always been reliable and imports recipes from most, but not all, of my favorite sites. I was ecstatic when they announced an iOS version (before Mariner bought it) and the long awaited syncing feature. I've never had a problem with the cloud syncing. Apparently some have. It is absolutely true that Mariner hasn't updated the functionality in about 3 years. I think they could do more with it, but apparently they are not spending resources on it. I still use it at least weekly, and it holds my personal recipe collection. Seeing that it has a 2 star rating now makes me sad because I've used the heck out of it for so long. Mariner, if you're listening, there's a market for this type of app, and I hope you'll give it some love.
I have not experienced any of the problems cited by other reviewers. My wife and are using one Mariner account and syncing flawlessly between a MacBook and 4 iOS devices. It is super easy to use the website import, and we've found that most of our favorite websites (not all) are supported and the import works perfectly - even importing the main image.
I like the chef's view option on the iPad, allowing me to leave the iPad a good distance from my prep and cooking surfaces and still being able to read the directions.
I do not use it for creating a shopping list, so I can't comment on that feature.
Where's tech-support and customer service of any software or any app
I've use MacGourmet deluxe and the iOS apps for years. I used to love it however about a year ago I started having significant problems with syncing – ended up having duplicates and triplicates of all of my recipes etc. After months of trying to work with tech-support and often not hearing from them for weeks or months at a time, I finally contacted Michael Ray, President of Mariner Software; he promised that he would get on it and I then heard from somebody that he was going to be working on it. That was March 12 and I still have never heard back. I just transferred all of my recipes from MacGourmet to Paprika which syncs between the program on your computer and the apps on your devices on its own every single time you make a change
