Reviews From google play store

Great shopping and recipe planning app. A lot of good recipes, some of which are gated by a dollar paywall, though you can see what it is before deciding if it's worth it or not. Ton of free recipes that I've cooked many of, and the app can double as a personal shopping list as well. Overall, great get.

I love this app, it's my favorite recipe/planner app. Easily create shopping lists and add or remove ingredients. Prepare the weeks food ahead of time with the meal planner. Lots of great recipes. The only problem, and it drives me crazy, is a serious amount of lag when pressing buttons. Each time I want to go back or forward or each new screen takes a second or two to load. It doesn't sound like a lot but it adds up and becomes quite frustrating. I have a Note 10+ and LTE data so it's not me.

I like the app and it has some good recipes, but it won't stop suggesting vegan recipes. I have my settings set to "no diet" but 80% of the recipes I get are vegan. There should either be an options to choose "no vegan" or it shouldn't just suggest it to you without selecting it. Very annoying.

Just accessing the app for the first time now. Seems to be useful and functional. So far, I really like the ability to create easy-to-reference grocery lists. Can't wait to get shopping and cooking! Will update rating with use. A few suggestions: - I'd love to see more slow cooker recipes. - When removing an item from the shopping list, I wish there was an "Undo" feature. - I wish I could add web links to recipes I find elsewhere to my meal plan. - Any plans to work with Instacart?

I love the concept so much! I hate meal planning and getting my grocery list ready and this app makes it so easy. However, this app will not load my grocery list that I generated for my week of meals, no matter how long I give it. It's very slow and lags after selecting items.

Nice and helpful. Lots of recipes. Better for the environment since it avoids using paper to write down meal plans. I just wished there was a setting to make the week start on mondays. It's very disturbing for me that the week is sunday to saturday.

This is a great app and I like the way you can put a weeks shopping list in and it collates everything you need but the only reason it doesnt have 5 stars is because theres no nutritional breakdown and for my lifestyle I need to know the nutritional breakdown, if it's there and I cant find it I'm sorry.

A wide range of recipes to choose from and easy to use. The app itself however is lacking in performance. Latest update has fixed the lag issue on the homepage. Changed my review to reflect that.

I liked the app at first but after a few weeks of planning I am finding that I am only seeing the same recipes new recipes. I would like a little more variety. Other than that it's a good app

This isn't a meal planner. For some reason you have to sign up. After that you are given the option of what you would like from the app, meal planning, eating on a budget, etc. Then you can tell them food allergies and aversions. So I checked nuts (allergy) and mushroom (just don't like them) One of the first suggested recipes is something with mushrooms and pistachios. This is just another recipe app, which can be found anywhere on the internet.

This ! This is the app you want ! I've tried at least 5 and this is the only one that's practical, beautiful, takes into account your diet.... It's everything you need and more !

You give the option to meal plan for breakfast lunch and dinner, which is great, but you dont allow to plan for snacks! So sad this would be 5 stars otherwise!

This is a wonderful app. I've been looking for an App that dot not require payment to get the healthy recipes you need.

I really love the app, but it crashes when you have several recipes in a shopping list

Easily the best recipes app I've ever used. Ingredients amount in the directions is so useful!

If i have any questions, I know where to email. App is clean and easy to use.

it crashes whenever i tap on the search bar

I really enjoy using this app to make my weekly meal plan. I think this is the only app can fulfill what I need - meal plan, shopping list and my own cookbook in the same app. Still there is something if improve, it will be a perfect app: 1. Editable ingredient and measurement 2. Can add your own recipes to your cookbook (it is so disappointed that I can have my own cookbook but without my own recipes !!) 3. Number of serves per recipe (then muliply the amount of ingredient if I need more serves

Sooooooo much lag. You scroll and it's like you're doing on a dial up modem.

A good app and with great recipes. But there are some improvements to be made: 1. The quantities are not always consistent between metric and imperial and can be confusing to read. What is 4pckg of white sugar? 2. The app notifies me constantly when I lose connection. This would be fine. But, it happens when I'm not using the app as well as when it's in the background which is very distracting. Please turn this off. 3. I want compete freedom to add my own weird ingredients to the shopping list.

Good recipes but app has alot of lag

I do like the assessment phase of your app. where you choose a specific diet, and your food prefrences. Develop that further to include other diets. But when entering a recipe of your own creation, it does not allow a range of food choices. such as, "1 cup chopped ham, crumbled bacon or breakfast sausage". it only allows the selection of one ingredient. And there is no place to save the instructions for the recipe, which leaves the recipe incomplete. Only for a very basic list of ingredients.

Please make units editable so we can add custom units such as portions. Also let us add our own ingredients. Couldn't put in recipe because I can only add Italian Dressing, but not fat-free Italian dressing. It's not like your app has listed every possible ingredient. If you can't customize, it's useless.

I have tried multiple cooking app. I have enjoyed many of them. This app however is my favorite. It does a lot of things other apps also do, only better. The meal planning, shopping list, recepe books and ways of finding fun recipes are all wonderful and better than any other cooking app. Even the format to reading the recipe is different, easier, and over all better than any other app I have tried. I have so much I want to say about this app but am out of room so just try it for yourself!

I'm glad to see an active development team here. I had to give a three star rating for the app due to it's performance issues but I'm glad to say that the issues are now gone. The app is a great companion for a home cook. I love the ability to filter specific style of recipes. For me as an acrive gym goer those would be the high-protein recipes. When I have a vegan guest, it's so simple to just browse a vegan recipe. Also the quality of the recipes is great and consistent.

Great app that helps with finding recipes, planning meals and creating shopping lists. I like that you get the option to create your own recipes too, and also choose which ingredients in the recipes you want to add to your shopping list. Just a couple of issues that make it annoying sometimes: choosing dates in meal plan, and the app freezes sometimes.

Won't create shopping list from meal plan? *Edit - all fixed - just had to close and reopen the app 🙈 - Would be great if you could make the meal plans collaborative though? - And the shopping list - maybe there could be a function to upload a list of everything you already had in your cupboard, so that these would automatically be taken off, shortening the list? - Then maybe you could search recipes for ingredients which you already had? Many thanks ☺️

I downloaded a bunch of cooking apps, this one was the best. It pretty much has everything you could ask for except the nutritional value, but I think its still worth it. Not only it has the basic shopping list/cookbook/ meal planner and a lot of categories thing that many cooking apps do. IMO sidechef has the nicest interface and a lot of other features. IT HAS AN INGREDIENTS WIKI! it tells you the benefits, ways to prepare it, how to buy it, etc. Also, I live for its meal plans and colections!

I hope that this app was for me. The meal planner is practical, and neat. This app also offered lots of recipes, even they can add the ingredients and turn it into shopping list. But apparently it's inappropriate for someone who lives outside US and wants to cook different kind of cuisine, Japanese food or Korean dish for example. I can't add personalised ingredients and save it to the ingredients list when I want to add my own meal recipe in the meal planner. Had to uninstall this, sorry.

Would have been great of it wasn't so buggy and lacking some essential features. I'm cooking for just me so I just need meals to serve 1-2. While I can adjust this when I go into the recipe, I can't save that serving size so when I try to make a shopping list, it gives me the amount for the default serving of the recipe. When I try to change the serving size then save that individually as a shopping list, I can't access the list.

Making your own recipe is a struggle. i have recipes written down that i would like to put in my cookbook in the app. If I have a recipe that im not sure when I want to eat it but I want it in my cookbook, I have to go to the meal planner, add a date, then make the recipe instead of just being able to go straight to the cookbook. Also, if you have an ingredient that doesnt show up in the drop down you cant add it. Ex., I need HVR dip mix for a recipe but bc its not in the drop down, i cant add it

I like the UI if the app, yea it is a little laggy but thats ok (for now). 3 things i would like to see in here is a way you can easily delete a shopping list, sync the meal plan with another user ( wife and hubby for example) and finally Echo show intergration. If it had all of these i would pay 10 bucks for this app..edit i just found out slide to left to delete lists

*EDIT Updated review to 3 stars because of fantastic customer service. Thank you to Jimmy for helping me with a workaround for searching Annoyed within 2 minutes of opening the app - the allergies option should either include more options or give something like a dropdown menu or an option for a list of ingredients to block. Just because my allergies are not common does not mean they're not valid, and i don't want to have to hunt through the menu options to try and find something that i can eat

Great app for meal planning. Minor issues with producing shopping lists and would love to be able to set a default serving number and measurement (imperial/metric) but overall a solid offering.

I really wanted to like this app. Its almost great. The biggest draw back is that it doesn't allow you to pull recipes from the web or add your own like Mealime, Paprika and other similar apps do. I feel this is a very important feature for meal planning app.

Great app, tells you how long it takes to make a dish, very well written. But I don't see an option if someone wants only a certain diet recipe they don't have an option to select and blocks out everything else.

I love your app! But I have a small suggestion: when you are looking at the recipes, you should be able to see their rating if they have any. I mainly want to see if the recipe is worth opening or not.

very close. great UI and recipe selection. a few suggestions. add nutritional info (couldn't find it within the recipes themselves); link or share recipes to download to specific fitness/calorie watcher apps; and unable to easily navigate how to add your own recipe by ingredients

it's an amazing app, I find new recipes every day😁! and this has a easy to use format so it's not that hard to navigate. I already made more than 30 dishes from here and every time I'm blown away by the taste of it

i like the easy way of finding recipes, create cookbooks and meal plans that fit my diet. I just started to use and so far it is the best app I found. I would like if they add the calories of the meals.

with filter, it's so easy to find recipes that I love. Easily add the ingredients to shopping list. I suggest adding pork-free and alcohol-free to the diet for muslims.

It is the best app for learning how to cook out there I think ,thanks.

I really do love the recipes I find. Enjoying the app thus far. Easy to use. Simple Interface.

Wow. Perfection. UI is perfect, the photos are just stunning, many recipes to choose from with great filters.

I was really hoping it had a recurring recipe feature on the meals planner. Like, I could pre-decide meals for say 2 weeks and the same would roll over and over by default.

Seems like a good idea,but the execution was poor on my galaxy s8. App is laggy, buggy, and doesn't perform a lot of its intended features (e.g create list).

really makes life so easy especially when im a new mom to a 7 month old already walking, me running a farm while husband works 14 hours a day, REALLY makes life easy and healthy with this app. I REALLY am thankful for this!

not as user friendly as I would have liked. I can't have bbq and my husband can't have peppers. No way to swipe left on ones you don't want.

This app offers so many recipes. You can also build your meal plan. And plus, no ads absolutely :3

This is a brilliant app and i feel a must have. I've only been using it a week and we as a family are already trying new things.

makes you sign up promising more features (only feature i got was to connect to appliances i dont own) & doesn't have a delete account option afterward.

this is so neat for a single guy ! recipes and you can build a shopping list for multiple recipes .

The best cooking app I have ever used it's easy to use and a good guide through your cooking process I would say it's a life saver

Has some great recipes. plus the ingredients are easy to find,most you already have.

great easy to follow recipes, good selection for all type of diets.

Love this app. Easy to follow recipes and plan the meals.

App keeps crashing which is extremely fusterating when trying to plan for a whole month! Plz fix$

very easy to use. choose your favourite recipes, add to a meal plan then it generates a grocery list for you!

Love this app so much especially as a broke college student it's perfect for low budget and for beginner chefs

Great app only settings to be added and minor bugs. Really helpful highly advice to download

A very useful app for cooking foods by individual.... If u guys focuses on to narrate the ingredients in Bengali too then it will be very useful for us...

worse app ever makes me sign in every 5 seconds and won't let me save any recipies, do not recommend at all!

I really love it couldn't find any cooking app better than this!

It's great but it doesn't allow me to add my own ingredient. I may have a local ingredient which may not be included in the dropdown options, y'know.

This app has a lot of amazing recipes. I highly recommend!!

Crashes shortly after opening the app. Can't even use it.

amazing! so many recipes from different cuisines all over the world!

This is a really cool and useful app if you enjoy cooking or just want to get some ideas for meals

great ideas and easy to save into meal plans and shopping lists

a really good app i learned how to cook but if they made like kg or gram and ml or liter to measure it would be better

this is a very useful app. its something ive been looking for for a long time! thank you!

Really good app that helps me plan my meal and gives me the recipe

great for family traditions, brainstorming diets, budgeting, and many other options.

simple easy, and woffle between choosing the meal and the recipe.

the step by step mode for recipes is a blessing for people with adhd!

It's a good app. I found many interesting recipes on it.

I give it a 5star but i feel that including a video to some recipes can make a huge difference eg Foreign recipes .

so many choices for dinner for a week with a shopping list

Omg, what I have been looking for!! Excellent product!!

Love that it put ingredients in a shopping list format.

Great recipes and easy to use.

Great app, with great instructions.

Full of great ideas for breakfast lunch and dinner.

seems okay but wont save my shopping list!!!!

robo calls immediately after downloading! lots of them!

There's a lot of variety in the types of recipes but very few options for customizing your diet preferences which makes it hard to hunt through when there are a lot of foods you can't or won't eat. For example, you can't tell the app you don't like salads or spicy food or lentils, etc. Also the options they do give you don't block out every recipe with your allergens. For example I told the app I am soy-free but several recipes with edamame or tofu have shown up when I browse through recipes.

Cannot delete anything. Cannot change settings for units either. Stupid that you cannot choose saved recipies in specified cookbook for meal plans, you have to scroll though all recipies. Would have been more convenient to add prices for automatic calculations to keep track of budget as you Shop.

Great app. clean design. good food.

so far so good. recipes are nice

excellent recipes great variety of food

i love this app its awsome got some great recipes

Stupid app closes randomly, what is this? A joke

This is not a full review. I just downloaded this app. It seems very promising. Set up did not take much time but once I started adding recipes to the meal plan, things started to get a bit strange. None of the recipes I added appeared on the meal planner. After some time playing with the app and the shopping list to figure it out, the recipes started appearing on the meal plan so the app was just too slow. I will continue to use the app as it does seem to b really promising. updates to follow.

fun recipe and easily accessible

Easy UI and nice recipes

shows promise, but im tired of seeing vegan and other health craze meals. please include an option to exclude these items. Also, very annoying that even items selected as intolerances have shown up in my lists.

Tried numerous apps like this and I'd say its the best of its kind.

this is the best meal plan app I have ever downloaded- it took me a very long time to find a good one that didn't make me pay for everything. thank you so much. I think the people who couldn't open it didn't have an updated phone. mine is a Samsung Galaxy J3 v but it works perfectly. also, thank you for making it ad free. God bless your efforts!!!😍

I really enjoy the app - Unlike pinterest, I can look at a recipe and not have to skim through an entire blog just to find the ingredients. It's easy to save recipes. But finding relative content is not as easy. At first it was great, but now I only see the types of meals I would never make.

Love the shopping list
