App shut down not a big loss

The app in itself is not a big loss - the time it takes to keep recipes and change them to a usable format is. This app started out excellent, but it was evident that Microsoft neither updated nor supported it for the better. It kept going downhill. MS' way of shutting down the app fares no better. Recipes can be printed to the XPS viewer. I printed all my recipes to the XPS viewer yesterday with a very nasty surprise. All my folders and files in Documents changed to read only. I'm not a technician, so it took me awhile to figure out what was wrong and then reverse it. XPS viewer files are a pain to change to Word files in order to be able to edit, change, annotate them. A poor way to treat your customers, Microsoft!

Great app

Love this app and find it very useful in menu planning. The ability to add recipes to a meal and a collection is a timesaver. Also like the ability to add my own recipes. The shopping list syncs from my surface to my Windows Phone where items can be checked off. A great example of using technology to improve ones life

Great app

This app is awesome. Ive been using this app for a while, not to mention the times I just browse for food ideas as a kid. I grew up with msn and windows. So there app are like second nature. I hope this isn't one of the apps closing. I want to stay with msn and windows but with all these changes idk where they might go next. If anything I hope there will be a function where I could download my own books and recipes with out manually adding them, like a pic or something.

Sorry to see this go!

I loved the Food & Drink app for finding new recipes and ideas and ESPECIALLY for the hands-free use while cooking. I didn't use the diet log function very much because I was already using a different platform, but it did improve with time. The diet tracker is one function that the MS Band Health app really needs--a way to track/display calories consumed (not just burned). I'm going to miss this app a LOT!

Happy Before MSN Moved My Collections

[July 7, 2015] Turns out MS is killing the app. Too bad, it is a nice tool even without the old categories. I don't understand why Microsoft would have removed the valuable and useful functionality of being able to add my own recipes in my own categories. That is now gone and the work I did creating and organizing my work is lost into one big collection of "My Recipes." There may be better apps that include that function. That said, this has some nice features and I like the layout. The handsfree mode works well on my tablet while cooking. It prevents me (mostly) from having to touch the screen. The collection of available recipes is pretty good. It would be nice for Microsoft to fix what it broke and return the prior ability to add recipes to categories. Or, at least make some kind of explanation.

Why Microsoft ends support for the best gourmet app off all Windows Phone Store? I don't understand... I don't want other gourmet app... just I want Microsoft think about what are doing. Please, no ends support of this app. A lot of many users of Windows Phone want see this app on Windows 10 Mobile.
