What's New in Version 3.1
The award winning My Recipe Book is now ready to take on iOS 7. We've overhauled the visual design to bring it into the modern style, while still keeping a firm handle on our roots. The result is a graphical change that is at once fresh and clean while still very familiar.
Beyond just the visual we've also been hard at work improving the sync architecture and fixed dozens of little bugs that had crept in.
Last, but not least, we also have added the ability to add and edit your recipes directly on the iPhone. You can now manage your Recipe Book wherever you are.
I’ve loved using this app and was really excited to find a great way to carry my favorite recipes with me (holiday’s at family, travel, etc). The import feature is amazing and even the shopping cart is pretty useful. It’s a great app and really the thoughts for improvement below don’t keep me from using it. I’d love to see it be my main cookbook source (what would I do with the spare shelf space!)
Room for improvement: It does take time to type in ones that aren’t on a website. I think an easier method for import from word or email (lots of cutting and pasting now). Also given the amount of time I’m putting into this app, I would REALLY like a method of a master downloaded document for back up. Just one big doc would make me happy. Finally, I haven’t shared with other people who have this app, I hope that if we’ve went to the effort to type in a recipe, it would be an easy import. A version on iMac would be nice for meal planning.
Best of Both Worlds and then some
If you don't care to store fav recipes in multiple sites and then have a 3rd place for your own, this is your app. Better yet, you can store your own edits to recipes.
I've had great success importing from many websites-I primarily use AllRecipes and Epicurious) occasionally some tweaking is needed.
But what I like most: the ability to print, and email recipes - this means you never risk losing your recipes (just email yourself), and sharing with friends is far more private. This is SO MUCH Better than websites which change policies, and apps which only store your recipes in a proprietary format (thus holding them hostage).
The ability to of sync across multiple devices fills the final gap the app had.
The only thing I'd still like to see is a desktop counterpart.
Super kudos to the Devs.
If you're on anything but the newest iPad the animations really make this app slow. Like, really slow. Annoying, even. But for a time this was the best recipe book app I could find so I put up with it. It'd even be a 3-4 star app. No longer.
I recently tried Paprika. Much better. But regarding this app in particular: most upsetting was my discovery that there is no way to get your recipes out, short of sending an email, one recipe at a time. I thought I'd transfer my recipes over to the new app...but no. There's no way for you to get your recipes out, in any format. So, you're stuck once they're in there.
The only reason this app keeps two stars is the really nice layout of the recipe when you're cooking, otherwise it's one star for an app that locks you in for life and will annoy you with animations you can't control but add nothing to the experience. Don't use it until this is fixed!
