The online shopping list and app do not sync properly so items are missing from one or not crossed off on the other. Also, not very many websites are supported for importing recipies. You can enter them manually, but I find that due to different phrasing, when you add items to the shopping list the items don't total correctly and you will have 1 yellow pepper and 3/4 yellow bell pepper and 1 yellow bell pepper listed as individual items. Great concept, needs some fine tuning.
Great design, great idea, BUT...... I will not use it due to lack of functionality (already switched to Food Planner). There is only one, BIG reason - the recipes ingredients list are not integrated completely with shopping list. If an ingredient exists in more than 1 recipe, when I generate the shopping list, the same ingredient will appear as many times as the ingredient is mentioned in the recipes. For example, if I have 1 egg in the breakfast, 1 egg for the soup and 1 egg in the main dish, the list will look like this: 1 egg 1 egg 1 egg Imagine what happens if I try to summarize and generate a weekly menu shopping list! :) Once this is solved, and the shopping list starts working as a pivot table (3 eggs), i will get back to the app. Until then, I'd stick with Foodplanner
Its just what im looking for ... and then again... I have been looking for an app that does just what this app does. It allows you to add your food recipe. With your recipes you can plan your entire meals and add them to a calendar. Also you can add your meal right to a shopping list. From your shopping list you can look in the house cross out what you dont need and hit the grocery store. The shopping list is very organized. But the app doesnt always open and thats a problem when your shopping :(
App won't work I use pepperplate online and so far I love it! I can store my own recipes easily, I do wish more websites were supported (one of my fave is skinnymom) otherwise it helps keep me organized, healthy and helps save on money (less random store outings) . But the app won't allow me to sign on via FB, someone please help, phone app convince would be so nice!
Yeah! Feeling it My wife and I love the app. Very useful for menu planning and shopping. Have used for months with no problem. I love the shopping list & once you get a good collection of recipes, it's great. I wish you could add recipes in app on mobile, but I figured out you can do so on your mobile browser. Some "suppoted" recipe sites do not import properly. Also app always automatically closes when first opened on my galaxy s5, then opens fine on second attempt
Awesome app! I ♥ that this app syncs across all my devices. The shopping list feature is great! I just bring it to the grocery store with me on my phone and tick off the items as I put them in my shopping cart. If I could add recipes to my collection via an applet on my Android phone, and if the screen wouldn't go to sleep while I'm cooking (only a prob on my phone, not my tab) I'd give it one more star.
