Step-by-step is amazing!


The step-by-step mode (with voice control) is simply amazing, I can browse thru the steps without touching the phone, and the steps are so easy to follow!

Needs a lot of work


This is a good app if you're a novice cook and need some guidance, I can really see the advantage of this app for someone who's new to the kitchen. However, if you're someone who has a lot of experience and would like to upload recipes and pix and have a following on here forget it. The time it takes to upload recipes and pix is ridiculous and cumbersome. This app doesn't interface with anything else including, but not limited to, your actual computer, so if you don't want to type everything out on your phone you're sol; apps like Evernote, so they only place you can upload your food pix from is your phone's photo app; and I could go on. I'm a blogger and although I have pix on my phone the majority of my awesome food pix are on my desktop or in apps like Evernote likewise for my recipes so the steps to take to go backwards and put everything on my phone just so I can then upload to this stupid app really put the kibosh on the whole process for me. It seems like the developers created this app for their friends and no one else. I hope you guys decide you want to fix this stuff and learn to play well with others otherwise this app seems like a really cool deal for a few people. If you're a foodie looking to grow your following stick with your blog, your Facebook page, Instagram and Pinterest. They have interfacing down.
