Great Program

I use this program all of the time. I have not encountered any problems so far except in the beginning I was noticing additional recipes that would show up that I did not enter into my recipe box. I prefer putting in my recipe box what I want and not what someone else thinks that I should have. I removed the foreign recipes and to my knowledge (I have not checked recently) I do not have recipes in my file that I did not put there. This is a great program and I no longer loose the fun and delicious favorites. I love that you can add photos of the recipe and you are able to share the recipes as well. Thank you for doing such a great job.

Great App - I Rarely Have Problems

I have been using this app for several years, initially on ipad, then added to my iphone, currently 6S. I rarely have problems. I am a Cook's Illustrated web subscriber and the instant import works great there. I simply do not have the problems I see elsewhere in the reviews. When instant import is not supported, the copy and paste work-around always works. I like the idea that the recipes I keep there are mine, not an encyclopedia of recipes I will not use and have to search through to get where I want. When I am shopping and forgot to check a recipe for ingredients, I just check my phone. I love this app

Keeps freezing when I'm using it

I've had this app for years and really depend on it, all my recipes are kept on it. The past few months each time I use it, it freezes up. I can't move it down to see the rest of ingredients or the directions, no matter what I do. This morning it was so bad, I had to stop what I was doing and access the recipe on my iPhone to finish what I was making. This Christmas I received an iPad Air 2 and also upgraded my iPhone to the 6s. What an absolute nightmare trying to transfer all my recipes to my new i products. I ended up having to email all 442 recipes to myself and transferring that way. I hope this is just a temporary bug and will be fixed shortly. Up until the last month, this app has always been 5*.
