Hard to believe people would pay 3 bucks for a thinly veiled interface (that is why it is so small in size!) that is really only a search engine that crawls recipe sites and bring back results that are inferior and lacking to what you would have gotten by just using the same types of sites on the net using your browser! You have to pay 3 bucks only to get rid of the ads?

The dev was emailed many times about explaining why this app out of nowhere starts at certain times of the day when the app has not even been opened in months. They refuse to send a reply. This app uses 15 megabytes of device memory even though it does not show as running in the list of running apps, and it never asked for permission to start up at the boot.

This is a perfect example of how data mining developers think they have a right to crawl into your phone any time of the day, use 15 megabytes of phone memory even though you did not open it or you already force closed it, sniff around your phone for data they want and find valuable, suck it up to their servers through the open net connection you gave permission for, and then close itself before you even realize what the app did to you.

I expect this type of app behavior in FREE APPS, but not PAID APPS. So, if you approve of this dev sucking up your battery life and phone memory whenever it feels it wants to steal your data almost daily when you are not aware of it (unless you have an app to monitor this activity as I do), and you also approve of PAYING THE DEV 3 bucks for the privilege of their theivery, then you will likely enjoy this data mining search engine that has a mind of its own.

As for me, there are better alternatives out there in apps and net search engines that will do much more, and even for free, and I will happily use them before I permit this piece of junk to reside on my phone.

I got the app for free, but havent actally used it yet, so my review deserves some discredit in that respect. My tablet has been slowing down significantly latley, takeing as long as 34 seconds to reorient when I tilt it. Looking for ways to speed my system up, I discovered this app was somehow using 15mb of my ram in my "manage applications" menu, while not appearing at all under active applications or running services.

I cannot concieve why the developers think they need to hide this process, why it takes up such a large chunk, or why a cookbook needs to be on when I'm not using it.

I read all the reviews about not getting the premium features, so I was hesitant about downloading this app. Sure enough when I tried editing labels, it said that I needed to upgrade. I believe that when something doesn't work right, try powering down and restarting the phone. Sure enough, upon restart, I was able to edit labels and haven't had the upgrade message since. You may want to try powering down your phone and restarting if you are having the same problem. Running on a Droid 3.

I've been looking for an app like this that was both simple and could generate a shopping list. I've tried various shopping list and also recipe apps, but this is the first one that seems like I'll actually use it. It does have several shortcomings as I see it. The first being that it is fairly difficult to add a recipe from scratch. ie: Getting a recipe from your computer or a web site not listed in the apps search parameters. I found the easiest way for this version was to email a backup copy of the stock database to myself because it puts everything into the proper (readable) format. You can then copy this to a text editor and add your own information using one of the existing recipes as a template (with pictures even). Then you need to cut the text you just created and add it to the text file on your device, and then import as outlined in the help file. The second shortcoming that I've spotted in 1 day of use is that recipes downloaded from do not come in with correct ingredients or directions and need to be edited. This is somewhat tedious on the device and led to me figuring out the best way to do it on a computer. If the developers could work on a database editor (web based maybe) and fix downloads, I will update my rating to 5 stars. As is though it's still just a little difficult to work with but has great potential.

Don't be taken in like I was.
I was looking for a cooking app,
I chose on the basis of the number of good customer reviews.
I didn't realise that this is not a one time purchase, but a subscription service to which you will be forced to sign up to if you save a whole load of recipes here that you want to keep.
So You will loose the vast majority since this automatically reverts to the free version which has very little Storage capacity... be warned.
Luckily I never used this app since I realised, having used it for one week that it was virtually useless.
Limited search capacity, ie virtually none, for menus over the web , for example no recipes for jams, jellies, marmalades Etc.
Secondly the much touted shopping list aspect is also useless, since for a big shop using many menus, it does not aggregate the ingredients but gives you a list of duplicates upon duplicates for example for butter , One cupful, two sticks, two tablespoons, 150 grammes Etc Etc. So you have to go through EACH INGREDIENT AND ADD THEM ALL UP, PASTE IN THE TOTAL AMOUNT AND THEN DELETE EACH OF THE INDIVIDUAL AMOUNTS. Bah!!
Well until this problem is overcome there is no advantage over ye old pen and paper!
I am now using a totally free app with no limits, infinitely more advanced than this one, called my cookbook.
You can buy an ad free version of it but I don't see the need.
I also use a second free one called push to kindle which is also wonderful with my kindle fire.
In summary, don't buy this, give the five dollars to your favourite charity, I wish I had!!
