Needs a back button

the Create recipe needs a back button the only way you can go back to the main page is to stop and start the program

Awesome...when it syncs

I'm really enjoying Pepperplate on multiple platforms and was happy to see it in the Store. I added several recipes through the app and it was a great experience! Unfortunately, now there are 3-4 copies of each of the recipes I added through the app, some with pictures, some's a mess. If this gets resolved I'm a happy customer. If not, it's ruined my Pepperplate experience and I'll have to find something else.

App Does Not Sync - Worthless

I have been trying to get the developers to fix this Windows 8 app. It does not sync! This is useless if it doesn't sync with your web account. I have over 100 recipes and it stops every time at 39 recipes and does not sync to my web account. I have uninstalled, re-installed, loaded it other computers and still it doesn't sync. Support sent me some lame troubleshooting steps about my computer. The app has a bug. Please fix it or remove it from the store. If there is a recipe limit of 39, then market it that way!

A bit buggy

Started it once, set up an account and configured it, and now the app does not get past the splash screen. Have since reinstalled and works okay, but is still a bit buggy.

Essential navigation not included

I could not use this app. I have recipes that I want to enter because they are already tried and true, but there is no way to navigate back to the main menu once you select "create recipe". There is also no identifiable "save" button, so unless you import recipes only from URL links, it's pretty much useless.

Where's the windows 10 Version

Ok u updated the app for 8.1 over 3 years ago but 8.1 is over. Either update this for windows 10 or get rid of it please. When I say for 10, I mean features. Continuum, universal app, ability to run in windowed format as well as full screen, etc. This has gone on long enough.

Great App

I great app for keeping a database of recipes. It will sync between web, computer and phone app. I wish that it had drag and drop capability and a more customizable grocery list.

Awesome when it works

I created a few recipes and I got excited. Then I created a 4th one and the recipe shows up on the recipe list but will not open. I can't delete it or anything. When it syncs it does not include the recipe in the sync but adds it still to the overall count of recipes. It says and shows I have 5 but only 4 open. In my iPhone version it only shows 3 even though I have tried to sync it several times. Frustrating! Update 6/16/2016: I have over 100 recipes in it now and I do like it's function but it still has bugs. The sync is not always working right over my devices. Needs a windows phone app. BIG NEED: Ability to EXPORT. Finally, it appears the publisher has abandoned this as I have not seen an update in years.

So happy you're on Microsoft.

Have loved this app and website for ages. Thanks for being one of the few great apps to branch out to Microsoft.
