I didn't think it could get any worse...Wrong! 👎 1/5
I hate I ever upgraded the first time. All those annoying ads and user profiles. Also, I would get the same repetitive recipe suggestions, ugh. I thought maybe I should try the new upgrade to see if there was any improvement. WRONG. There is so much going on the screen, I cannot focus on the recipe. More ads and similar recipes over shadow the recipe I am trying to view. I know it's all about revenue stream with ad placement. However, If I could revert back to at least the version I used in 2014, I would be soooo happy!
What happened to All Recipes Pro? 1/5
I paid for the Pro version before but it has not been updated for iOS 11 and is no longer in the app store. (Now this). Is the developer abandoning previous customers and want them to pay him again?
Crashing on iPhone X 1/5
By Jordan Ryan Moore
The app consistently crashes several seconds after I open any recipe on my iPhone X. Same story on my wife’s iPhone X. This app is now unusable.
By Robert Carew
I love this app but how can I get rid of the ads? Once ads are gone this will be a 5 star app.
It keeps jumping down the page to directions while I am trying to look at the ingredients. 1/5
It keeps jumping down the page to directions while I am trying to look at the ingredients. Glitchy and slow. Going back to using the webpage
Used to be a big fan of this app..... 1/5
I don’t see this latest version as an improvement. I have lost the ability to filter recipes by rating and/or popularity. That is a big loss for me, as now finding a recipe takes way too much time. Also lost the ability to print a hard copy. I don’t do it often, but it is basic functionality. I stopped to write this review while searching for a new, functional, app.
Not working for me 1/5
I downloaded this app when the previous one would not work with the latest iOS. I use Allrecipes when I need some ideas on how to cook a specific dish.
This app is not working for me. It often claims it cannot connect to the allrecipes server. I’ve tried to create an account since it did not accept my allrecipes.com account. I don’t know if I was successful or not. I can’t log in with the credentials I used to create the account, and I can’t log in with Facebook either.
So, without the ability to connect or login, the app is pretty useless.
I’ve tried rebooting the iPad with no change in performance.
Pretty Good, But Room For Improvement 4/5
I use this app all the time to try new recipes, and to make favorites that I've saved over the years. The ads are annoying, but I've learned to deal with them. One thing I'm noticing is that there's an apparent disconnect between the recipes that are available on the website and the recipes available in the app. For example, today I saw two Instant Pot recipes on Instagram that I wanted to check out and save to my favorites to try later, but when I tried to find them in the app, I couldn't. The recipes either aren't there, or the search function isn't working. I like being able to say what types of recipes I'm interested in so that the app can populate my feed, but I'd like to be able to dismiss or hide ones that don't appeal to me.
R u Kidding me?? The last Update was terrible!! (So y bother updating anymore?) it doesn’t get better. Now half the time when I’ll put in say Shrimp Scampi to search either in my favs or just to search for new recipes, it’ll come up empty with no recipes! N sometimes when a recipe finally does come up there’s no ingredients or directions. Also sometimes ill find the recipes on the internet when it won’t come up in the app, ill find if then click on ot to open the app n it won’t open to that recipe. So I’m not going to bother updating this version since I don’t have the iPhone X.
This review was from a previous update.....When i want to view a recipe now every time I go to tap on it to open the recipe it won't open now. It just keeps telling me to drag the recipe to remove it. You could've done a much better job on how to sort out a recipe box and to delete recipes.
Plz fix cause as of right now i cant use the app n will b deleted soon. Ty
It could be a great app but u can only search in the in season section. We should b a search only section. Why cant we edit our recipe box??? There r recipes i tried that i dont like n i want to delete them from my box n cant, so i have to keep them in my box?? Plz make changes to improve this app!
AllRecipes.com dumped the old app (that I paid for) to bring an ad filled one. 1/5
I’m pretty disgusted that the old app, which was great, was shucked off with the advent of iOS 11 to present a new “free” app that places advertising at every twist and turn. I’m done with AllRecipes.com.
Hard to filter for nut allergies. 2/5
While you can filter recipes for special dietary needs, you can't filter recipes to exclude nuts. You have to add every variation of nuts to the filter and still recipes slip through. For instance, if you put pecans in as an ingredient to avoid, you will still have recipes come up for chopped pecans. Seeing as nut allergies are common, I don't see why it isn't included in the dietary needs section. Wheat-free and dairy-free are.
Nothing but issues 1/5
Searches take too long
Videos aren’t loading
Saving favorites doesn’t work most of the time.
So I use my safari browser and all works fine, just not in the app!
Too slow 1/5
By The Knut House
I love All Recipes! But I have to use my laptop to cook with because this app is way too slow on my iPhone 7. My phone times out and powers down before the recipe finishes loading. When researching new recipes, images do not load in a timely manner.
Bring back the old app! 2/5
I loved the older version of this app. This version stinks. The layout is cluttered with adds, the search feature is much more limited than it used to be, and it no longer has the option to display ingredients and directions side by side on one screen. Honestly, I haven’t seen any improvements at all with this version, but plenty of frustrations. Allrecipes is a wonderful resource, but I now just use the web version.
Never worked for me 1/5
I've had this app for almost 2 years, but I guess I should've deleted it since it refused to even refresh the page.
S L O W 1/5
Never able to open the app. Only get "fetching recipes", thereby making the app absolutely useless.
I like the app but ... 3/5
The only way to print a recipe is to use the iPhone print function and export to another printing app which won’t remove extra content to save page/ink. I ended going to the website and choosing print from there which defeats the purpose of the app. My suggestion is to add that same print option inside the app.
Too Many Ads ... 2/5
... so I deleted it.
Font too small/lack of contrast 1/5
Good app almost illegible unless you’re 20 years old. The font size is too small and the finger swipe feature to enlarge the page/display is not enabled on the main recipe pages. Surprisingly they use this feature when you send them messages-but the feature is lacking where it’s needed the most to allow you to read the recipes. Also the light grey font color on white background makes the recipes impossible to read unless you have perfect eyesight.
I too paid for the old Version-but that subscription did not carry forward with the new version. Now all I get is ads which clutter up the recipes. Also my recipe box disappeared and was not retrievable. This used to be my go to app for recipes. Now it is unusable.
Used to be my go to app... 2/5
By MK Ro
This is my favorite apps, or rather used to be one of my favorite apps, because now it will not connect. I’m devastated, what is going on???
Okay app but the adverts are intrusive 2/5
The adverts are too intrusive for this app to be used very much. It has been built with some good features but until they offer an add free version I won’t use it for much.
I hate the new layout 1/5
I hate the new app/layout. It is hard to use and cumbersome. I also paid for the old app and now with the new I get... yes you guessed it ADS!!!! If I wanted ads I would go to the internet. I find that I do not use this app hardly at all anymore and I used to use it all the time. All recipes should give the option of if you want this new format not just pawn it off on me. While they told me I would still have my recipe box, it was s hard to use. I do not find this new version as user friendly as the previous version.
Cannot print 2/5
By Biker TC
Does not seem to be anyway to print a recipe
I love love love All Recipes! I love how you can change the amount of servings for your recipe and there are so many recipes!
By JS Lurkin
...Fatherless Children: I paid for this app so I didn't have to put up with ads. And now I'm seeing ads again. Pinterest gives me far more for free and I don't have to be subjected to thievery.
And...I had a list of favorites and now it’s gone. I need this has been app because of why?
Don’t print this recipe 1/5
No print option. Was rated a 5 * now 1 * - back to using the web app which does allow for printing the recipe. And since opening up the recipe in the web app, it auto opens the iOS app, I have to delete this app until this basic function is restored.
Major glitch 3/5
I can only search for meals once. If I try to add another item to my search or want to search using different keywords, nothing will come up. Essentially, I have to restart the app to make a second search, which is annoying. I would rate 5 stars otherwise.
By snack it
could be good, be this app without agressive ads. on ipad they take too much space on the screen
The home screen widget has not loaded a recipe for several weeks
Recent update 2/5
Since a recent update, when I click on a recipe, there is nothing there. Have not found out how to retrieve the information. 😡
OMG THIS IS SOO AMAZING GET IT NOW
Ads ads ads 2/5
I like the notes section, but there are too many ads! There is so much crap on the screen, there's only a little room left for the recipe, and now there are auto-play videos! So much for listening to music while I cook - now all I can listen to are your ads! I won't be using it to find new recipes. Maybe I'll copy down the ones I like and uninstall the app.
Impossible to use 1/5
I don't know who is writing the other reviews, but they can't possibly be using the same Allrecipes app I'm using. The app makes me create a collection, but I can never see the collections once they are created. The search function only works half the time and I'm not sure why it doesn't work the other half, but nothing will show up. Really aggravating and I deleted it after 24 hours.
Best Cooking App Ever! 5/5
I have loved cooking, and this app takes the cake!! 5 stars!

Favorite Recipe App 5/5
This is my "GO TO" recipe search app. I've never been let down
This is my absolute favorite recipe app. Easy to find things and plenty of reviews for guidance.
Love it! 5/5
By N Munoz
I never knew how much I enjoyed cooking and baking until I started using the recipes from this app. The reviews people leave include tips to make the main recipe a little different or a little better. I seriously love this app
I struggle with choosing what to prepare for daily meals and Allrecipes helps me in my decisions.
My Go To recipe source 5/5
Whenever I'm looking for a recipe, this is where I start - I rarely have to look further. Always read the reviews first, as there's lots of helpful hints and adjustments.
Expected More 2/5
By Renee Lenoa
This app is ok.. that is all.
