Ratings and Reviews
Best Recipe App for All kinds of people
I love Yummly, I don’t remember how I found out about it. But it has been a lifesaver, it’s great to save recipes I find online that I want to look at later and not get lost in the bookmark section of my phone. It’s also good for a vegan like me to find recipes, but also serving size and nutrition facts.I scan look at all the egan recipes in one place instead of looking them up online and finding out it isn’t vegan. Plus I can look for recipes using certain ingredients I have laying around. They have such a inclusive dietary preference all types of vegetarians, paleo, plus all kinds of allergies. They have now guided videos, I’ll check those out soon and see what they’re like. I honestly can’t think of anything to complain about. It’s a useful tool for me and one of the must-have food apps on my phone. All the other exclusively vegan recipe apps , or just general apps are overpriced and don’t do half the things Yummly does or if they do you have to pay a ridiculous subscription fee. The best part it is all free! Not a free app with a lot limitations on certain recipes, but there’s a premium membership with access to over thousand of recipes and videos. Or it’s a free trial , it’s actually legitimately free, I mean it has prompted recipes from brand companies but its clearly labeled. Plus I mean the app has to be paid for somehow. If that’s the only ads I’ve got to deal with, I’ll take it!

Hi Tina Nessa Ceon,
Wow! Thank you for your awesome review! We're so happy to hear that you've been enjoying Yummly! We have tons of delicious vegan options on Yummly and we're happy to hear that you've even been adding some others you've found to your recipe box from around the web! Thanks for choosing Yummly! :)
I’m a major Foodie. I have found so many incredible and interesting recipes on Yummly. Even ones I’ve used over the years myself. I really enjoy the ability to research so easily. I try a lot of recipes that fall into several different categories. So it’s always a pleasure to come on to the app and be able to research in less time than books, especially when the recipes give you nutritional information that is accurate.
However, with all the great things one thing has begun to bother me somewhat. I go to the recipe and the page is gone and that is when you go to directions. It’s very unfortunate to find a wonderful recipe only to find that it’s not complete or accurate. If you fix this Yummly I will give you the 5 stars.
I switch from this app Yummly and Food Network to create a planned menu weekly. I also use true and tried recipes I’ve counted on throughout the years. I try as often as I can to give a comment on the recipe I am trying for the first time. However, with so much cooking and daily life, commentaries can get pushed to the side. I do eventually get to them just may not be the same day. Keep up the great job and work Yummly and please fix that error page, I have been disappointed quite a bit lately from that ordeal. Thanks for asking for a review after I used the app for a while. I appreciate the timing.

Thanks for being the best part of Yummly, happy cooking! :)
Very Helpful App
I had been planning meals and shopping lists in a note taking app for a while but as I added recipes over time the app became slow and glitchy. It wasn't designed to handle a large database of recipes and ingredients. Since I have switched over to Yummly that problem is solved. All my recipes are organized and easily accessible. Shopping lists are generated on the fly easily and custom grocery items can be added to the list without a problem. That, plus the ability to tailor our recipe preferences (vegan), a massive library of recipes to search, and the ability to add recipes I find elsewhere online make this a killer app. I love it. That being said, there are a couple of features I would love to see added in the future. First, I would like the ability to modify the recipes with my own ingredients, notes and instructions. So when I add a recipe to my shopping list it would add my custom items as well. It would also be very nice to be able to type in my own personal recipes from scratch. I have some family recipes I'd like to reference from time to time. Regardless, excellent app. Thank you!
