App is not working on my older IPad which is too bad. Recipes won't load after tapping link. I'm not going to use my phone to try and read recipes. Hope this is fixed soon. Otherwise will uninstall.
Please update 2/5
Great app but unfortunately I can no longer use it. It is apparently incompatible with the new iPhone Xs. I’ve tried on two different phones. Please update it!
Looks Promising, sadly it needs a lot of work. 2/5
This app appears to be very usedfull, however after using it to make a recipe I thinks it needs a lot of work. The 3 main things that are in the way of making this a functioning app are: #1-the list of ingredients and amounts used are on one page, you must touch the screen to go to the cooking instructions and then it is back & forth, touching the screen each time, making a mess out of your screen. Very user unfriendly IMHO.
#2- No ability to print the recipe out, why? This is a deal breaker for me. (I prefer not to have my iPad in the middle of my cooking area).
#3- No ability to make notes on the recipe as to any changes made to the recipe or to note how well it worked out. Again, why?
There are a few more things about this app that make difficult in my opinion but these 3 are the most problematic. At first glance I was impressed until I actually tried to use it. I won’t delete it yet, hopefully the team will get this app up to speed to make me want to try it out again.
Not work for IPhone X 2/5
The latest version always crashes when trying to open it in iPhone X, and the developer team should look into the issue.
???? RECIPES ???? 1/5
Would be good...IF...it worked! Can't try recipes that won't even open. Badly in need of bug fixes.
Useless recipes 1/5
By Isaac boo
This is the most useless app I have ever seen. Only thing it does is to show the name of the food and has no real directions. Junk!!!
Still will not open on iPhone 8 1/5
Can’t even get to an opening screen, just flashes the opening screen and the I’m dumped into my home screen set of apps/front page on iPhone.
iPhone, but not iPad 2/5
By Rivergoat of Borg
Works OK on my iPhone 6 with iOS 11, but while it loads and tries to open on my older iPad 3, recipes themselves will not open. Kind of a worthless app for iPad. Was hoping to use iPad as its screen is larger, but apparently not until a patch is developed.
Crashes on iPhone X 1/5
Crashes on iPhone X. Running iOS 11.1.2
When I tapped on this app what I got with a completely blank screen. Absolutely nothing.
Printing Needed 1/5
The recipes look good, but I don’t want my iPad in the kitchen. Add printing and it gets 5 stars.
Won’t open 1/5
I have this app on my phone and it works great. It won’t even open on my iPad. This is frustrating.
Downloaded app and recipes will not open :(
Pretty awesome app! 5/5
Why so negative? When I first saw all the negative reviews I thought I was in for a bad trip.
Installed the app. Everything works very well. No errors, no not populating errors. It has everything I need and more!
IMHO, People just gotta stop expecting something awesome they knew existed 5 minutes ago
Unable to view recipes 1/5
When I tap a recipe, it highlights it, so the app recognizes the tap, but nothing happens. I tapped a recipe and set the phone down and came back 5 minuets later and nothing.
Recipes don’t load 1/5
Looks like some great recipes, but I can’t get any of them to load! Disappointed as I love my instant pot and thought an app would be an easy way to find new recipes.
App will not open.
Worked Great Until Upgraded phone 2/5
I just upgraded from the iPhone 6 to the X. The app worked until I upgraded. Now it crashes when trying to open.
The negative reviews are from previous versions. The app is clearly updated. 5/5
After reading the reviews, I was worried the app wouldn’t work. And I think the criticisms are a bit overboard. I would love it if you added a paleo/low carb category. I see that you label recipes for dietary restrictions and that’s great! Adding nutrition info would be cool, but I can add that up.
I really like that the reviews for recipes say “I made this” and “leave a review.” I feel like sometimes people leave a review without having made the dish.
This is a solid app that has great growth potential. The Instant Pot is amazing. Thank you so much for following through with an app.
Does not work 1/5
Does not work at this time. Don’t use the app.
Not bad 4/5
Looks pretty intuitive and easy to navigate. Definitely needs more recipes and then maybe split into ethnic dish groups to make it easier to find something for “Indian” or “Italian” night etc. I like the tabs for ingredients and preparation separate. This promotes mise en place.
Doesn’t seem to work 1/5
I have downloaded this app on two different iPads and it is not responsive. One iPad will get to the recipe list but will not load any that I tap on. On the other iPad when you Open the app, it doesnt respond when attempting to “Learn More” or “skip to recipes”....it just sits on the open screen, unresponsive.
Instant Pot Far Better Than Its App! 2/5
By Rick-Las Vegas
First, have to save I absolutely love the Instant Pot. An amazing product—just ordered and received my second IP.
Downloaded the IP App and it works perfectly on my iPad Pro 12.9–however, I recommended it to my brother, also an IP aficionado, and he reported back that the app opens on his iPad, but the recipes would not populate.
I then loaded the app on my iPhone and have the same exact situation. App opens but no recipes will load!
So I deleted the app from my iPhone 7 and reloaded it. Same situation. Could not open any recipes.
Developers need to go to work on this. Doubt if we are the only ones experiencing difficulties.
Instant Pot can do better than this.
PRINT A RECIPE? 2/5
Maybe it’s just me but printing a recipe seems like a thing that anyone would expect to be able to do from an app that’s got a bunch of recipes you want to take into the kitchen. Maybe I’m just stupid but I can’t find a single way to use this app and send the recipe to air print which would make this app a five star rating. Since I can’t seem to find a way to print and I don’t think there is one this is the most useless app in the world; come on are you shitting me?! Who wants to go into the kitchen and stare and squint at your iPhone and try to use the touchscreen when your hands are wet and slimy that’s just stupid and retarded.
I really want to love this app. 1/5
4/5 times I go to open the app, it fails and crashes. I want to be able to access the recipes and to live the app, but I can do neither.
Going in the right direction 3/5
Needs some more recipes and better directions but I like the grocery list feature
Lacks basic information 1/5
All I want is cooking times for beans, beets, etc. I get more info using the web than this app.
Pleasantly surprised 4/5
After reading the previous reviews I was concerned this app would be too glitchy to use. To the contrary, not only did it operate smoothly but I immediately found a simple vegetarian dinner for tonight and tomorrow that I'm really excited to try. So glad to have found this app!
Good start, needs some work 3/5
I love the idea of this app and it has a fair (and growing) library of recipes - many of which have been very tasty! There are a few things needed before I can give it 5 stars: 1) Fix the server error when trying to review a recipe. 2) Find a more convenient way to display ingredients and instructions (e.g. a split screen with each half scrolling independently). It's a pain to switch back and forth repeatedly between the tabs when I need an amount, then switch back and scroll to find which step I was on. 3) Add option to suspend screen timeout. 4) Fix in-app Help. Currently it only leads to support for the Instant Pot - not to app support to report errors.
Good start, though, and I look forward to updates!
Canned ingedients??? 1/5
I bought the instant pot to cook healthy from scratch recipes, yet their app keeps making recipes that have canned ingredients like beans and tomato sauce. Isn't this pot supposed to cook those things? So why are the recipes not at least giving the instructions to do so?
Frustrating app 1/5
By MIchigan Gram
Very frustrating to be tempted with yummy recipes and, after tapping, tapping, tapping on a selection...will not load! I was able to load two recipes and don't know how that happened. But that was it. Deleted the app and downloaded it again. Same problem. These are wonderful recipes. Please let users access them, for heaven's sake! Fix this!! 😡
Has Potential But Recipes Won't Load 2/5
It's so frustrating because I see all these recipes I want to try, but they half way load, and then stop. Doesn't matter where I am or I'm connected to wifi. I wish they'd fix this!!!
App will not stay open 1/5
I can't get it to open on my iPad, has it been having problems?
Bad app 1/5
App doesn't work. I can open one recipe, then I have to completely leave the app and come back to open anything else. Waste of time!
Still Cannot sign in 4/5
By Grandma Geek
They fixed it! Yay. Thank you Instant Pot techies. It a promising app. It offers tips for newbies and has beautiful photos and is user friendly.
Can't sign in, won't recognize password 2/5
By ElizabethKW, CT
I can't seem to successfully reset my password, continually getting an error message. So functionality is limited. But recipes look good.
Good idea, poor implementation 1/5
While the app looks nice, it is really difficult to use since every time you scroll, it selects a recipe. Once the redesign the list view so that you can scroll -- it will be much easier to use.
Good recipes 3/5
The recipes are good but I can't save them because I can't login. I have tried to create an account for a while now but the app won't let me.
Can't create an account 1/5
Downloaded this today and I cannot get anything to happen after I type in my info & password to create a new account. Tapping on the sign-up button does not work. Tried on iPhone & iPad with no success.
Cannot sign up for an account 2/5
Hope the recipes are good, but I can't sign up. Put in all the info, press the button, and... nothing.
Great Start! 5/5
This is an excellent beginning for finding Instant Pot recipes. The layout and navigation is easy to understand and user-friendly. My only criticism is that there isn't too many recipes yet, but this is easily forgiven since this is a newly launched app.
I experienced none of the problems that others had listed (sign-up and touchy scrolling). All of those bothersome issues must have been resolved.
Looking forward to progressing 4/5
Excited for the app, looking forward to improvements
Good so far, please add a PRINT option 3/5
Agree with other reviews. Good: recipes. Bad: Clunky to navigate. But most of all please add an option to print recipes.
Won't work 1/5
It might be nice but I haven't found anyone who has been able to sign in and use it. Server error every single time.
Needs some work 1/5
By Friend of all the pods
My first impression was that the app is easy to use... and then I tried using it. You can't scroll through search results because you're constantly opening recipes instead of scrolling. I've only had this app for 4 days, and while I keep trying to give it the benefit of the doubt, it's nearly impossible to use because you keep inadvertently opening recipes. I keep getting frustrated and go to Pinterest instead. I really, really wanted to love this app, and can honestly say I tried, but the frustration of its inoperability prevails. Great idea, poor implementation.
I'll keep it around in hopes it becomes less 'tap' sensitive. I work in the software industry, specifically in the mobile app realm of the industry, and I understand that there are ups and downs, but how did this pass any quality assurance testing? I found it impossible to scroll without opening a recipe. I'll try back in a few months, but please please correct this. I hope to change this to five stars in the future. Current status = fail.
Not happy 1/5
Downloaded this app and created an account. Went to sign in again the next day, but didn't get my password quite right and had to reset my password. Re-entered my information and now get the message "server error". I have re-set my password three times and all I get is " server error". There is no way around it. I did delete and reinstall this app, but I am not able to sign in. This needs to be fixed!
Server Error 1/5
Have tried for 2 days to sign in. Every time I try a message pops up and I cannot get past it. "Server Error. Try again". All my other apps work so I don't think it's my iPad/iPhone.
Can't scroll through recipes! 3/5
App looks so nice but every time I try to scroll through recipes, one of them opens! Really annoying. It's like the entire field is tappable allowing it to open.
Other than that there's a whole lot of recipes to look through with nice pics and easy instructions.
Can't Log in 2/5
This app would be great...if I could log in and save recipes.
Too Sensitive? 2/5
I'm really not sure about the content because it is simply too frustrating to scroll through recipes. As I'm scrolling, no matter the speed or finger placement, recipes open and I have to go back and resume scrolling. Not a good user experience.
