Frustrating! The ingredient amounts are supposed to be adjustable based on the servings you are preparing. The math is wrong. I thought I'd deal with it by just setting it to one serving and doing my own calculations. Quantities based on one serving are wrong, too. Also, the recipes state amounts that don't correlate with anything. I've liked the recipe ideas, but I'm uninstalling because I may as well be creating my own recipes with all of the guesswork in quantities.

Single sign in my stopped working. I can now only access through the Virgin Pulse app directly, where the site lags. I get a prompt to log in with single sign in, then it asks for my name and password anyhow instead of taking me to SSO. There aren't very many recipes at all. Some of them are silly, such as peanut butter and bananas on toast. I don't need a recipe for that. There's a lack of vegan recipes. New recipes haven't been added in at least nine months if not more.

The recipes are mostly gourmet, so if you like to save money, unless you want to make your own grocery lists or are good at improvising, this isn't the app for you. Additionally, the app constantly signed me out, so while it's a minor inconvenience, having to sign in everyday gets to be a bit of a bother.
