Improvements and bugfixes
I have tried to download this app on my phone to no avail. It couldn't find my location. So I downloaded on my ipad. That did find my location! Great! I got very excited! Everything's working, finding local produce, farmers markets, all is well. I found a specific produce I want or use for to dinner, click on recipes and BAM! the fun is over!! I see the ingredients but not the "steps" which, in my book, makes this app useless!!! I can find all the other info using my phone book or Internet search! I just want to see the whole recipe INCLUDING the "steps" so I can cook with the local produce! GRRRRR!!!!! I AM RELUCTANTLY UNINSTALLING!!! I was excited that this may work, but it doesn't, it's what I've been looking for. So sad. VERY FRUSTRATED!
No issues logging in or creating an account. I'm located in Texas and the app found me (location services turned on) with LTE network.
*Everything works except for finding sellers for a selected product which kept me from giving 5 stars.
Love this app as I can pick food and recipes that are in season. I like eating local and this app helps me do just that.
Other reviewers aren't lying
I thought maybe they were exaggerating. I created a profile and tried seeing what was in season. My only option: Snow. Yes, I'm serious. Nothing else. So I thought, well, Snow has comments, maybe it'll be funny. Clicked comments and the app crashed. Tried again, app crashed. Tried local markets. Names with no info at all. The rest is even worse. Skip this app and just use google.
