I originally gave this app 5 stars. When I purchased this program, included in the price was the cookn cloud sync feature. This is the program I purchased. Now after purchase, this feature is no longer included? Now to use what I previously paid for, I must shell out money for a monthly premium subscription. Talk about bait and switch. Talk about a contract change. This is WRONG!. If a new purchase has this as a term of purchase, so be it. But to now stick it to loyal customers who purchased this. WRONG!! The developers response just shows more of his shenanigans. I BOUGHT the desktop cooking app and he knows it since he asked for reviews. Shame on him!! Save yourself much aggravation and get one of the 10 highest rated recipe programs, of which Cook'n is NOT one of them. This guy will not honor his commitments. He would rather blame his clients.
The free option doesn't permit sync, but the subscription options offer scanning and sync, as well as very responsive tech support at the top level. Sync is really worthwhile as it makes this app so much more powerful in tandem with your desktop version of Cook'n (all included in the one package subscription) Cook'n is easily the most versatile, flexible, powerful and full function recipe manager on the market. I just can't justify spending $15 a month when there are $15 a year alternatives After two months, hoping the developer would honour his commitment to provide the support I had paid for, I've come to the realisation that, unless you are actually paying him the monthly subscription, you are on your own. So much for his claims! This is a great app, spoiled by the money hungry antics of the owner. If you want the best, and don't mind paying a hefty fee, look no further than Cook'n. There are plenty of cheaper apps, even free ones, that will do much of what Cook'n does so well.
Paid for subscription and still won't sync After the subscription rate finally fell, I relented and got the cheapest one because all I wanted was to be able to sync to my tablet. I have 566 recipes in my cookbook, and only 533 of them synced. I've run the sync several times and still not working. What the heck am I paying for?? Of course I can't contact tech support because I'd have to pay extra. Really disappointed.
No Pintrest Sad that I'm not able to get all the recipes I've pinned. Still having trouble getting all devices to talk. Great concept but it's been a challenge for years that I have had it.
