Customer Reviews

Support is nonexistent

First let me say, when this app works, it is great. I love it. However, if you have application issues, you won't get any help if you contact the vendor. After upgrading to iOS 8, and installing the update for iOS 8, my app would open only for a moment then immediately close. I did all the normal troubleshooting for a iPad Air to no avail, so sent a message to support through the website. No response. I waited three days, asking the question if I installed on my iPhone would my recipes sync, no response. And by the way recipes did not sync, and I paid for the app a second time. I realize I could have synced my iPad to my iPhone, but I was afraid I would get a corrupt install. Again, I received no response after three days. Finally, I emailed them using a Bug Report email address I had and received an auto reply, but no response. I finally uninstalled and reinstalled the app. Of course, I lost all the recipes I had saved, about a hundred. I won't be using this app anymore because of two reasons. Firs, there is no support. Second, I won't use this app because there is no auto backup of data.

But when this app works, it was great. Sorry to lose it.

I'm Very Jazzed!!

I used to bookmark and "Send To Home Page" a myriad of recipes, from dozens of sources. After a while, it became an utter mess! I could rarely find a recipe for which I was searching! It was like a desk, buried in a zillion papers. I needed a way to organize my mess!!

Along came this app! I researched a dozen or more related apps, but I chose "The Recipe Box." Not only does it allow me to copy recipes from countless sources and add my own favorites and creations, but it affords me the option to customize and edit any imported recipe, to my own preferences and tastes. Now, whenever I'm searching for a specific recipe, I know where to find it!

It took me a little time to "learn the ropes," but it's been well worth it! Furthermore, my questions and feedback have been answered immediately! These people really DO care! It's SO REFRESHING!! You can't go wrong with this app!!

LOVE the app, but has bugs

I absolutely love this app, but it definitely has some bugs. It will often crash while assigning a category in entry view. It happens so often, that I have gotten into the habit of saving the recipe without any categories and then going back in to add them later. The keyboards have a great feature of adding keys for recipe specific needs such as 1/2, 1/4, degree symbol, etc. however, I constantly have to flip between portrait and landscape because the symbols are different on each and because the text doesn't scroll well, so you often can't see what you're typing (esp in landscape mode). Lastly, I am always concerned about having all of my recipes in a proprietary format that is not supported across platforms without an export option. Who knows if I will continue to use an iPad, especially with all of the recent problems with iOS 8 that is making my iPad borderline useless?
