Ultimately, not worth the money I paid

I have bought and been using this app for months now. It is ok, but has some major flaws that they don't seem to want to acknowledge or fix. 1) Every update wipes your favorite recipes 2) On top of the premium 4.99 you pay, they are constantly trying to push additional recipes for 1.99. 3) They are not adding recipes, except as noted above 4) They can't seem to save your scroll position on long lists 5) You can't access or rate recipes 6) You can't comment a recipe

Can't Print

Great recipes and the app is easy to use, however it does not have a print function to print out the recipe.

Great BUT

This is a great app. Beautiful and well illustrated BUT it needs a shopping list feature and a way to print. Kraft's iPhone is great like that (albeit unstable). If I can email recipes and shopping lists, etc, it would make this would double it's value.

Fantastic collection, a bit awkward to bring

"Ronald" doesn't know what he's talking about. There are thousands of recipes included with your initial purchase. There is another set of 60+ collections you can buy, but there's no need to do so, and some are free. My only beef (if you'll pardon the pun) is Windows 8's bizarre UI. To print a recipe, you have to bring up the charms bar, click Devices, and print from there. Unfortunately, some recipes are either corrupt, or restricted. I could not print Asian Vegetable Rolls without crashing.

Love iCookbook!!!

This may be helpful: - move the cursor (if you're still using a mouse and not a Surface) to the lower right hand corner - 5 "charms" will appear vertically - click on the magnifying glass (search) - enter a search word(s) then enter OR click on iCookbooks' app This worked fine for me...hope it works for you as well. :)

iCookbook is a good application, but it has a few cons... For example: Being quite slow at times, and taking quite a long time to open... Other than that, it's an great app.. Keep it up (4.5 out of 5)

Great App

Some of the reviews for this app I have read are really misleading. Like one guy said where are my recipes? You can right click on the recipe and then click favorite and it will be saved for you. There is also a recent Column. Then there is the guy that said there is no search. Come on really search in windows 8 is handled by windows key+C and then click search you can search almost anything inside of windows 8 this way give it a try for email, pictures, music, Bing and yep your apps.

I loved this app when it was working and now I open it and it close right away and I only had this Toshiba windows 8 computer for two days. Anyone have any suggestions to fix this problem because I would definitely appreciate anyone help!!!! Thanks

Well rounded, gorgeous app

Beautiful, easy to use navigation with intuitive controls and sections. The share feature is also very nicely done sharing the full recipe with picture. Can't wait to see what more gets added in future recipes and features.

sub par for now...

Nice gui for w8 tiles and good overall concept. However... I have hundreds of my own recipes I'd like to input and there doesn't seem to be a way to do that. I have a living cookbook program for regular windows desktop that'll I stick with for now that has a great capture feature for internet recipes you find, as well as starting from scratch in making your own and linking to pictures and videos. For now this is a very average cookbook, with simply a nice shiny cover over it.
