I’ve used this app for years. I’ve paid for it TWICE! For the past 2 years it’s been a freaking nightmare. Keeps erasing all content. It’s like throwing your recipe book out the window.
I loved it for years. Used it daily. After the first payment, then erasing of all content, I ambivalently built up my recipes again. I was smart enough to bookmark every recipe on my phone.
Today I went to retrieve a recipe, all content erased again.
The developers and other users may cite being able to backup to cloud or elsewhere, this being able to retrieve your catalog, yet many have limited space on cloud, hard drives, and elsewhere, and expect that if you pay for an app (TWICE), it’s going to perform as it’s supposed to.
Avoid this app. Much easier and far more reliable to create a bookmark file “recipes,” adding any subcategories if desired.
Developers, when I paid the first time and attempted to contact you, CRICKETS. Don’t bother to appease me now because I gave you an EARNED, honest 1 star review.
I’ve enjoyed so many features of this app, particularly meal planning and being able to look back at recipes I’ve made together. But, I was blown away today with the import feature. I’d brought up a photo posted on the internet of a hand written recipe card in the browser. The app imported the recipe flawlessly even distinguishing between ingredients and directions written between two different cards, but posted in one photo. All the ingredients with their amounts were listed perfectly in order. This app has certainly made my life easier. Although, I do get addicted to adding recipes from the internet since it’s so easy, so it does also waste a bit of time. But, well worth it when I can try out something new with my family! I do wish it had a better feature to add groceries to our Alexa app since that’s where we keep our grocery list.
I like this program as much as Mac Gourmet—which I loved but had to give up because of support issues. I really like it that I can share my account and database with my daughter-in-law and she has access to all of our old family favorites from grandma etc. and I can see her new creative recipes. We just use categories to keep them separate. It’s a family cookbook on our phones!
The one thing that bugs me (might be the only thing) about the layout is that that recipe description, or intro, is on the second tab along with the directions. Why not put the description, which obviously would tell you if that’s the recipe you want to make (being a description), front and center where I need it? I would respectfully ask for this change in a future version.
Other than that minor thing, I love the app!
I have used this app since 2017. I can’t believe I have not written a review.
This is the best recipe keeper I have found. You can down load from the web, add your own recipes and share. I make grocery lists and the app is interchangeable between my iPhone and iPad so I make one list and have it on my phone. If I am at the store I can pull the recipe up and get a list of ingredients.
I love this because I can rate the recipe. Put recipes in my own categories like “Moms recipe” and “I have used” so I can find it with the ones I want to try amid the traditional main dish and appetizers categories. And you can edit the recipe or add notes.
I am able to print the recipe out and have a paper copy or email it to someone
I have had Paprika for more years than I can remember and have loved it to the point where every recipe I have is in there and I rely on it daily. I’m on Version 2.2.2 and lost access when I upgraded to IOS 14.5 two days ago. My Paprika will no longer open saying that the developer needs to update the program. I emailed them and am waiting for a response. I went ahead and purchased Paprika Version 3 hoping to convert my recipes over, however, I’ve had the old version for so long I don’t know what old email address and password I used. I was in the middle of making dinner and went to check my recipe - dinner is going in the garbage!!!
Love this app works so well, one small annoying thing is that when you enter ingredients, even if it more than 1 unit it still recommends the singular version of the ingredient to type in. Adding some sort of code to recognize anything over 1 and add an “s” to the end of the units (i.e. tablespoon turns into tablespoons) would be nice.
Another great addition would be a way to omit the submission of specific lines in the ingredients section to the grocery list so ingredients can be separated for different parts of a recipe.
I love this ap. It has the ability to down load recipes, plan menus and create grocery lists. Also the ability to load in my pantry items. My flaw in the past has been repeatedly purchasing the same herbs and spices when I have them already. No more as I can now check my ap to see what I have on hand.
One improvement, I purchased a new phone and had to purchase the ap again. Small price to pay to obtain the program again but annoying.
This app has been a life saver. So easy to use. Customizable. I have it on my phone and I purchased for my windows desktop so I can add recipes when I’m browsing on there as well. Everything syncs. You can sort and tag things however you like. Make menus, meal plans, shopping lists. Adding new recipes is super fast and easy. If you found it online it will port everything over automatically. Love this app! Worth the price.
This is hands down the best recipe app I’ve found. The browser function alone is great, but it automatically converts units, portions, and much more. I haven’t dove into the pantry organizer yet, but the app can also help organize shopping lists.
I wish the tagging of recipes was smoother, but other than that it’s an awesome app. If you like to cook buy it. You won’t be disappointed.
I am outraged that I had to buy this app AGAIN when I upgraded to IOS 14.5 just so I can recover all the recipes that I have saved. Just ridiculous! I would never have gotten this app if I had known that I have to pay again to download in each device, AND with certain IOS upgrades. I will gladly spread the word to everyone I know not to use this app!
