Customer Reviews

Best out there!

I rarely write reviews but I can’t help myself! I have used at least 3 other recipe ap’s and have not been totally happy with any of them. I have Paprika on 3 devices and they sync seamlessly. I have just finished moving all of my favorite “paper” recipes into Paprika. Many of the recipes I thought were special family and friend recipes i found in the browser so didn’t even have to manually put them in. I was amazed! The browser if fabulous as it searches almost every recipe site out there. There is nothing I haven’t been able to find. This ap is also very user friendly when adding your own recipes.

The only down side is the price. You do have to buy the ap for each device. All I can say is you get what you pay for. I am DONE with the free ap’s that are klunky and difficult to use.

Pros & Cons


1. cloud sync and a version for my phone so if I'm at the store and decide to make something it's there on my iPhone.

2. Importing recipes from allrecipes, kraft, martha, myrecipes, etc… is super easy. Even websites that aren't "supported" are still super easy thanks to the handy buttons at the bottom of the screen.

3. It’s easy to share recipes, I can email recipes right from my phone.

4. Good support, I encountered bugs early on and they fixed them quickly.


1. Importing From MasterCook: super EASY to export from MC, can export the entire cookbook with a few clicks. Importing them to Paprika takes FOREVER! it's a one-by-one process that takes a few billion clicks with EACH recipe.

2. If you'd planned to keep a paper copy be forwarned that it only prints FULL PAGE, no recipe cards, and only one recipe per page even if it's a tiny short recipe.

3. The print layout is pre-determined, you can't change it and put the "notes" section at the top.

Really great but one flaw

I love this app more than any recipe app out there. It’s simple, it’s straightforward, functional and not too fussy. I use it for all my recipes. I would highly recommend it to anyone.

The only thing that really bothers me is when you add an image to the recipe, it is cropped and saved into a tiny low-res thumbnail. You can’t access a larger photos, or even control the way it’s cropped. Which is such a bummer! A photo often speaks louder than words when it comes to browsing through recipes, this app could really use some larger photos, or at least a way to expand them.
