Amazing app, we've been using it for years now and it's been such a help in the kitchen. My husband and I can both add to and check the list, and I also have access on my tablet to use my tablet to follow recipes. Super convenient, I've adjusted recipes on the fly with zero issues. The only complaint I have is some recipes import weird from links, and I'm sure that's a formating thing on the website that's generally a quick fix.

I am so impressed with this app. It really does exactly what I was looking for, it is easy to use, you can import or write recipes, you can include photos and tags. The plan and shop tabs are what really set it apart. It saves so much time & money! Suggestions: on the shop tab produce should come first since that is generally the first section people go to in grocery stores, and the ingredients are sometimes miscategorized. Even with these small inconveniences, this app is well worth purchasing!

Not to be overdramatic, but this app may have saved my marriage:) My husband is a spoiled eater, and I was at my wits end trying to vary meals and not repeat too often. He also doesn't want one dish/pot meals too often. I looked for a long time to find an app that I could just drag and drop easily and keep track of meal history. (I know, meal history. Right) The added benefit of transferring into a shopping list is wonderful. Life got so much less stressful with this little gem!
