Excellent, but Needs Export
This is an excellent recipe organizer, and I especially love the innovative system for getting recipes off of web sites and importing them into Yummy Soup. (A shame that the web site importer is artificially limited to web pages -- it could easily work also with a file on my hard drive, or a text file, etc.)
The one thing that really makes me wary of using this long-term is the vendor lock-in. That is, once you have your info in YummySoup, there's no way to get it out. What happens if I spend years putting in hundreds of recipes into this app, and then the vendor goes out of business? Too bad -- the only "export" function YummySoup has isn't really an export -- it outputs a file that can only be read by YummySoup itself.
So I hope that the author looks into giving it some REAL export functions that create files in some of the standard "recipe" formats found on the web. It can import them; it should be able to output them as well.
My wife an I are avid cooks and we love this program; it has a lot of features, is very easy to use, and is very reasonably priced. We tried out several competing software packages and settled on YummySoup! - it was by far the best program for our needs.
We have already built up a library of over 1000 recipies and we frequently try new recipies that we find online; for that, the web import features work very well - much better than any other program we've tried.
We make extensive use of the groups and cuisine classification features, and to be fair, we have noticed a few bugs when creating and dragging folders around. Occasionally folders will disappear, but when restarting the program they will re-appear. Hopefully these minor bugs will be fixed in a future update.
Revised Review - Hungry Cow where are you?
No updates for a long time- no iPhone sync- I'm perilously close to switching to another recipe manager. Yummy Soup you are so great on my Mac- but I need to have you synced
I'm compelled to add to my initial review. This is one of the best apps I have ever used! There is simply no need to purchase another recipe database. In particular, the import feature is outstanding, and the ability to drag and drop recipes is easy- I am getting caught up on all of those recipes I have saved in various digital and paper files. Excellent support from developer- excellent all around! Buy it!
I am switching from another recipe organizer that was way too complex. This has an attractive interface and is very easy to use. The new manual is just what I needed to udnerstand everything quickly. The quick import from popular food sites is terrific! (I suggest adding Fine Cooking &Cooks Illustrated to the list of auto web imports). Definitely worth purchasing! In the future if our recipes are viewable on iPhone that will be an extra reason to have it!
