Does almost everything I want, but I would love to see filters for nutritional profiles, like low calorie, low carb, etc. Search terms sometimes go wonky: Looking for "canned tomatoes" will turn up every kind of tomato under the sun. These are nitpicks, but a major problem is that it will not sync between my laptop and my phone. I've spent the past few hours searching for a new recipe app just for this reason, but I can't seem to find one that does everything that this one does.

I've used BigOven for three years. I cannot believe how dysfunctional this app continues to be. The calendar will randomly jump around, so if you like to plan weekly meals-- it's incredibly hard to nail down the month you are on and will sometimes put you back a year ago. Even if you schedule meals for specific days they will revert back to one day. Additionally-- the app will sometimes crash. I'm done trying to make something work that doesn't.

Great idea, good app, still has a long ways to go. The recipes auto populated in the app are hit and miss. Sometimes they load beautifully into the app, populating ingredient lists properly, sometimes a simple comma or dash can trip it up. Some recipes don't listen the ingredients properly, so you need to review them first and make sure things match. The good thing is, if you subscribe you can copy any recipe and edit it to your liking or add your own. The grocery list has stopped functioning.
