Used to work fine. Now it says I'm not logged in and crashes. I've lost a lot of recipes I had in Chef. If they fix it I would recommend it. It was great for awhile.More
Very Poor Performance
It looked like a great app to have but it doesn't even open. It just gives me a notice claiming that I have to sign into a Microsoft account (even though I am already signing on to it FROM my Microsoft account). This one's going to the recycle bin.More
The best recipe collection app I have found, as I can add recipes from anywhere on the web! So useful. Plus a shopping list tool that allows you to consolidate, and a menu planner. All-in-one! However, you can't organize recipes into custom folders. The default is alphabetical. I prefer by course.More
This app doesn't work with the share charm
Followed the instructions to use the share charm to import recipes but this app can not share. It doesn't do anything it is supposed to do. Great idea...if it worked!!!!More
Used to be great til they abandoned development.
This app used to be fantastic. They promised updates, they promised a windows phone version, none materialized. Now even basic functionality like sharing a recipe list with onenote is broken. Devs have abandoned this project. Too bad.More
Does not let me share recipes after the second time I opened the app. Also it will not open anymore. I was excited, but now im uninstalling seeing it does not work. Trying PEPPERPLATE.More
This app has great potential, but several bugs. I get "something went wrong" error almost half the time I try to add recipes. Editing recipes is awkward; I would suggest that the recipe title pop up in an edit box when adding, so a recipe like "the best meatball" can be edited to Meatball, allowing it to be sorted in "M" instead of "T." I also contacted support regarding the "something went wrong" error and no one contacted me.More
Great app, BUT...
Intuitive and easy to use. I love the sharing option...worked perfectly w/ AllRecipes. However, the consumer needs to option to at least delete recipes, if not edit them. Other than that, I really enjoyed it.More
Good, but needs flexibility
I will change this review if this changes. Adding your own recipes is an exercise in luck. 30% of the time, "something goes wrong," and if you try to check another area, or do so accidentally, all the text you've entered vanishes. Also, when you add ingredients, such as "3 hard-boiled eggs, chopped", it gets changed to "3 units eggs", which makes sense for the purposes of shopping, but really damages the recipe. IF YOU ARE READING THIS, DESIGNERS, PLEASE FIX THIS IN THE RECIPE SECTION.More
An excellent design for a cooking app. Let's you add your own recipes but I'm not quite sure how it works. A brief tutorial would be nice but out of most of the cooking apps on the store this is one of the best.More
