The recipe box

There is no real tech support for this app and that is a big big problem. When you contact them you get an automatic reply to " most frequently asked
Questions". If your technical problem is not one of the common ones they simply ignore you and keep sending out the same canned automatic responses. This is infuriating particularly after hours have been wasted trying to get the app to do what it is supposed to do.

May 2015: The update is here and it not only did not solve a major problem but it has created new problems....SEVERE PROBLEMS. The developers of this app seem to have reached their level of incompetence. They had a good idea but can't keep the balls in the air. After this update the app is almost useless. When you enter the app and try to pull up the recipe index the icon you use to do that now throws you entirely out of the app and back onto your home page. After many tries one can sometimes manage to stay in the app but the recipe index is blocked by a drop down box making it impossible to pull up and read any recipes. This app developer needs new software developers but apparently does not realize that or is in too deep with the current technical folks to start again. Bottom line ...the purchaser of this app loses.

After Update...So disappointing!!!

Originally I rated this app 5 stars years ago, but each review has lost a star. Sadly, it now only gets 1 star from me. I agree with so many other users that the latest update ruined this app!!! HATE the new colors and ANNOYED that the special keyboard can no longer be hidden! And now, several days after the update, it won't even OPEN!! It crashes every time I try to open it to see a recipe. I chose this app years ago because of its rich colors that made the recipes so much easier to read. And the special keyboard, while some may like using it, NOT everyone is a fan. It used to be optional, then it became only somewhat optional, and now it cannot be hidden at all. Horrible!!! I've spent countless hours getting my recipes organized in this app and use it every day. I feel cheated & wish I'd chosen the Paprika app like my friend did (I didn't at the time because I liked the dark colors of this one!!) With Paprika, I'd have the ability to add it to ALL of my devices (iPad, iPhone & iMac) and synch them in the Cloud so they all stay updated.

Great app; tech support, not so much

The good news: This continues to be one of my favorite apps that I use heavily. Theoretically it does a wonderful job of importing recipes you find in magazines along with typing in your own recipes.
The bad news: The adage, "You don't have what you obtain, you only have what you maintain," applies to this app. This app is poorly maintained and known, glaring bugs are not fixed. I've sent bug reports several times regarding major features--like importing the picture of your own recipe from your photos. The old version could do this but so far, not the new one. The feature for it is there, but because of a bug, won't work. My food pictures are piling up in the hopes the almost non-existent tech support for this app will get around to it...when they feel like it.
