Great concept, but worst app

I have used MasterCook for years, but am increasingly disappointed by their app. Try syncing, and you can easily end up in a nightmare of searching for your recipes, which seem to have gone away. Or end up with multiple versions of your cookbook on your iPad, with 4 different date versions of the same recipe. Just an awful experience. Programming is outdated and does not appear to use current technologies for databases, spell checking, etc. It doesn’t look like there has been much improvement or investment to the app because it is still buggy and harder to use than it should be. And all the while, you are paying a hefty annual fee — bugger! Look for something else.

Concept is great

I tried using this app via my PC/iPhone to no avail. I gave up after a few recipes.
You can enter about 5 instructions in a recipe before the keyboard covers up the input field and the only way to enter data, is by blindly typing away.
The computer application is SEVERELY dated, resembling something of the Windows 3.1/95 days, and the sync mechanism is terrible. I’ll be moving on to another app if I can find one worth its salt.

A terrible, horrible, no good, very bad app

I used Mastercook back in the day. I remember being impressed with their selection of recipes, and that's why I downloaded this app in spite of the poor reviews. Not only is the app buggy, but I paid for a subscription to Mastercook, only to discover that the store isn't being maintained and the cookbooks seem to have been taken down. I don't even know why this app is still on here. Huge disappointment.

Developer Response ,

The mobile app works with a subscription and any content you add to your own private account. The MasterCook Windows product is available separately. The Windows product can sync with a subscription. See the comparison chart on this web page:
