Best app of its kind I have found. I tired many others, and almost every one was a bloated mess trying to be a social media app. I don't want 10,000 recipes from random people or food blogs. I want a app that can consolidate the recipes Ive tested into one place, lets me do meal planning, scales recipes, and generates shopping lists, and that's exactly what this app does. I bought a lifetime sub over a year ago and it was worth every penny. A++ for simplicity and utility.

Love, love, love this app! I have had it for about 5 years and it's functions and capabilities are awesome while being very easy to use! I love the ability to have on different devices & platforms for my same account. If I am on my phone and see a recipe it is as simple as sharing the url into the CB app and it recognizes the import. I am extremely happy with my choice!

I like the app the font the layout. I didn't mind that you had to switch tabs under the recipe, although maybe having it in one place would be good too. But I didn't like is that you only get to store 20 free recipes for the free version. Then it's a monthly subscription. I would rather have seen a one-time buying at a certain price for all the additional features. I deleted it found something else

Thanks for the review Frank, great to hear you like the app. The 20 recipe limit on a free plan is there just for you to try the app before committing to purchasing. We do also offer a one time purchase option for those who don't like subscriptions, it's our lifetime plan, a one time payment for the lifetime of CookBook no matter the app version.
