About this app

Yummly is a smart cooking app designed for YOU, personally! It uses AI to suggest recipes you’ll love. The more you cook with Yummly, the more helpful it gets based on your tastes. Want to try vegetarian, keto, paleo, or low FODMAP? Set a diet as a preference and receive recipe recommendations for it. Have a food allergy? Yummly excludes recipes containing the ingredients you’re allergic to.

Honestly, this is my favorite food app. I've got some nasty and uncommon food allergies, and their filters have been a life saver. Now I only see recipes that are "safe" for me. I don't have to worry about substitutions or anything like that. I get tried and true recipes all in one place. I find it so easy to get inspiration by just scrolling and seeing different foods out there. It has broadened my horizons and made me excited to cook food for myself and others, even with my allergies.

This app used to be amazing. It's gotten progressively slower, and several recipes didn't have links to the recipe directions. I contacted them about the glitchiness, and they just sent me the link to the recipe site with no assurance that they were working on the problem. Now it just crashes altogether. As much as it sucks to start over, I'm moving on to another app. Sorry. Not sorry. Maybe if they were appropriately responsive, I'd stick it out.

Sorry we misunderstood your initial complaint. Can you give it a try deleting the app from your device and then reinstalling it to see if this helps resolve the issue?

This app is incredible and had so much potential I had a lot of fun picking out all the stuff to start and ended up being left feeling played and lied to just like all the other apps that have you start and THEN pay it makes me not even want to continue and I usually just delete the app immediately. Not worth it when I can Google my own recipes and take screenshots of what I like or write it down. Coulda been a great app....
