I can't begin to describe how much I love this app! No more lost recipes when a site disappears! No more having to scroll through 20 paragraphs of someone's life story just to get a recipe for some badass roasted potatoes! Bonus points for being able to edit the recipes to conform to my bonkers health related dietary restrictions. Bonus bonus points for the meal planner function that pops out a shopping list when I'm done planning. I love it all!

I loved this app, in fact I bought both the iPhone and Android versions onnky to find out that I now have to pay for a monthly, yearly or lifetime subscription for version 2.0 which promises enhancements that I have not seen on either device since they made the change almost a year ago. No thank you, I will take my recipes to another app. I guess if you got in after this change was made. At least give us access to the version we paid for.

I have been looking for a recipe manager that seamlessly supports multiple platforms (including web). This app is perfect in that regard. It also provides an excellent recipe import capability. Editing and organizing recipes is very easy and intuitive. There are a couple of areas that could use some improvements; mainly the OCR and the shopping list. However, that did not deter me from purchasing a lifetime membership. I am hoping the developers will keep improving an already great app.
