So where is the My Recipe Box?

Without that, this app is just one of those theme cookbooks you get as a gift and put on the shelf and never us. I want to add my own recipes and keep track of them; is that only in the iOS version?

Needs dietary and caloric info

This would be useful

lots of recipes but no way to save your own

Good app but not great

A great recipe app, but it would be great if the app did not time out so quickly. If it could use more than the default sleep timer on the computer, that would be perfect

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)
