Barely functions on a tablet. No ability to manually upload files as other programs do. Requires you to pay their ridiculously high subscription rate in order to send recipes to the app. Maybe if you create a much more reasonable rate for those of us who just want to be able to access our recipes on another device and don't need all the other "bells and whistles" I might come back.
Not made for tablets - why????? The web version of the program is great as is the software verson for windows computers. The android phone app is good. Why on earth can the app not work on an android tablet? I use my tablet all the time in the kitchen and for reviewing my recipes - being able to use Master Cook in the kitchen on my tablet would make things so much easier than trying to do it on my phone or computer. As for the features of the program itself, I love how intelligent it is to allow me to share a web page that contains a recipe to the program and it automatically fills in all the fields for the amounts, ingredients, directions, and recipe source. That feature alone saves so much time. I also like how the program will autocalculate recipes to provide more or less servings. The menu plans and shopping lists are nice features as well but they aren't very user friendly to figure out.
Pretty worthless.. wont download my recipes for offline use. You cannot import recipes directly from your Mastercook PC app. You have to have a paid subscription to their website (+ any data charges for upload to Web and download to android device). "My Cookbook" app is a much better solution!
Each upgrade, just a little bit worse. Repeatedly get new cookbooks created, instead of existing cookbooks updated and synced. Tablets and phone often can't access recipes unless online, even when recipes supposedly downloaded for offline use. I put so much effort into cleaning up the duplicate cookbooks created, and moving recipes to where they should be, it just isn't worth it. And in the middle of this dysfunction, they notify me their subscription rate is skyrocketing later this year. $10 annually was fine, but to have my cookbooks repeatedly messed up and then ask for a lot more?
Been a MasterCook user for years, and am thrilled to have access to all my recipes on all my devices. Plus their support is fantastic. I couldn't be happier!
I have been a Cookn users for years but they keep increasing the pricing and the functionality is not worth it. Switched to Mastercook and I love it! Mastercook customer service helped transfer all 982 of my recipes into it cloud storage.
