Not worth the money
It has good potential. But there are numerous problems that make this application more trouble than help. There are too many steps to add a simple grocery item or create a meal. You have to create a new meal, type out the recipe, create the ingredients then add the igredients and more… NOT user friendly. What would be ideal is if you could copy and paste a hyperlink then when you go to make the meal just click on the hyperlink that has the recipe directions… You cannot print the weekly or even daily menu, you can only print the grocery list, and you cannot add to the grocery list other household items, so you have to take two lists to the grocery store.
I was excited to try out this app and am EXTREMELY disapointed. I want my money back!!!!
Don't Buy this App
It is NOT user friendly AT ALL. Help doesn't help either. Spent $12.99 and can't even get my money back. SHAME ON THIS APP DEVELOPER! And shame on Apple App for not providing an avenue to return something that simply does not do what it said it would.
