Learning to cook 2/5
I use this app to search for recipes and I also get email suggestions. My biggest complaint is when I want to look at a recipe from an email it takes me into the app and there is no way out or back to the email. I’m stuck in the app. Please make it so you can return to the email with a direct back link. So annoying, that I rarely look at any recipe suggestions from the email. A number of the pictures are very poor quality and not sure who would want to eat the unappetizing food.
Love it 5/5
I love this app because I have a lot of recipes here. I can access them quickly. The only thing I don’t like is the format change for while you are cooking. It used to be much easier.
What happened? 1/5
I do not know what happened to this app. I used to enjoy it. Now I cannot search for a recipe! Just the daily recommended recipes. FIX THIS!
Poor App & Website 1/5
Very frustrating crashes and adds
App no longer works 1/5
It looks like the app was disconnected from their cloud. Preventing it from getting any new updates. Can’t search recipes, can’t pull up favorite recipes, and you can’t really click on the ones that has been on the main page for a long time. The app is more useful if it’s deleted off the phone.
So irritated 2/5
By Ticked Off about wasted money
It used to periodically have issues (like on thanksgiving-seriously?) but now it won’t even let me into my saved recipes...come on already. I have to remember the recipe name and search it on the internet and then print it out -ridiculous.
Recipe box 3/5
Where is my recipe box? I’m signed in, can’t find it.
Bug report. 1/5
By De. Dr.
With iPhone XR the haptics feedback has my phone tapping me every few seconds. It’s like the application has a heartbeat and it’s creepy.
Print option? 2/5
I like to be able to print my recipes so I can make notes on them. Why can I print from the website but not the app???
Deleting this app 1/5
This app doesn’t work. It just shows the mixing bowl and spoon mixing away. I sat there for 5 minutes and nothing happened. I’m deleting this app.
Can’t print 2/5
I recently tried to print a recipe from the app as my phone was about to die and it would be a dish that would take some time. However, in printing from the app, in complete contrast from the webpage on the computer, the only thing you end up with is a lot of wasted ink and an 8x10 picture of what you are making.
No printing option makes for a poor app 2/5
Printing a recipe for me is important because I do not wish to stand over my ingredients in the kitchen with my phone. This app has no such ability. While the recipes and the videos are a nice touch, I rate it a two star because of printing, or the lack there of
Search doesn’t work 1/5
The recipe suggestions listed on my “page” never seem to change! Easy enough, just search for a recipe.... or so you think. I have the iPad app and the search function doesn’t work. Hasn’t in a long time. So search on the internet and a recipe pops up but, oh no! It’s from All Recipes...take a chance and click on the link but when you get to Allrecipes.com the recipe is nowhere to be found. It’s very frustrating! This app USED TO WORK, BUT DOESN’T ANYMORE! 🤦♀️
Almost never works and far from user friendly 1/5
First: App almost never actually works enough to launch itself.
Second: the whole “dinner spinner” idea is way more gimmicky than useful. Filter options are far from useful.
Can’t print?? 2/5
How can you have a recipe app that doesn’t allow you to print the recipe?? How could this not have been corrected to this point?
Takes forever to connect! 1/5
Please fix this app and maybe I’ll come back!
Come Back Unavailable 1/5
Terrible.... This app keeps telling me to come back unavailable.
Garfoo said it all 2/5
I too am so disappointed in Allrecipes. I was a pro member for years. Then a decision was apparently ( I say apparently because no one in customer “service” ever answered my inquiries and they were numerous) made to eliminate features such as weekly menus and shopping lists for that weeks menus. It no longer meets my needs so like Garfoo I too have moved on.
Version issues 2/5
Good app in theory, this version is so slow and sometimes just times out or shuts out.
Where did the spinner go? 1/5
Is the actual spinner gone?
Pop up contest 🤯 1/5
By Seriously Sincere Always
UnAble to because contest hi-jacks app and website
Lost all my favorites 1/5
What happened?I'm logged in and all my recipes that I have been collecting over the past 6 years are gone!?!!
What the heck? 1/5
I went to open the recipes that I have used for years, and I am “missing a Facebook token”, so the recipe closed and I can’t see it.
This is the worst! Fix the app, it isn’t rocket science.
No way to add recipes 1/5
Its almost 2019 and no way to type in a custom recipe in the app.
Will you EVER add print function???? 2/5
It is so irritating then I have to log onto the website to print these recipes rather than from the app. There are so many good comments and I want to go back and edit the recipe with those written in on a print out. Been waiting years for this function to be added to the app – you guys are so behind the times on this!!
By Owl penguin
I’ve used this app for years, and have loved it, but for some reason I can’t use it on my WiFi all of a sudden. I’ve tried reinstalling the app, and refreshing my WiFi and nothing worked. I would give the app a 5 star if I didn’t have to use my data view the recipes.
Mostly good 4/5
By Mamabear boo boo
I use this app all the time. Seems like an oversight that there is no “side dish” category in the top part of the spinner. Fix that and I can use this app for every part of dinner.
Can’t print and can’t access custom lists 3/5
Don’t like that you can’t print out of the app and I can’t access custom shopping lists. Makes it a pain to go shopping if you know what I mean.
Search function useless 2/5
I like being able to use this app to save my favorite recipes and refer back to them. But the search function doesn’t seem to work properly. I will look for a recipe that I’ve seen before and know exists, but it won’t show up in results despite using exact key words from the name. I have to go to an internet search engine to find it instead. Then if I go back and search for the recipe by the exact name, I might be able to find it.
Can’t print in the ap 1/5
And it hijacks your system so when I try to do an allrecipes search it’s opening my ap on its own. I had to delete the ap to easily search and print recipes.
Can’t browse by category!! 2/5
Unless I know EXACTLY what I want to make, this app is totally useless. You can’t browse by category! Like if I want to get ideas for dinner or dessert you can’t do that. And if you type “dessert” in the search you only get items with dessert in the name. It’s ridiculous.
I’ve use allrecipes for years, and I’ve always loved the convenience of it, I like the layout of the regular website easy to use. But this app, is either never loading, no recipes found, crashing, and or just not opening.
I’ve chose to use something that doesn’t have this issue, as I tend to use my cellphone for pretty much everything.
What happened? 2/5
I used to use this app all the time and I loved it. I have many favorites saved, but I can’t get the app to open most of the time these days. It says that I can’t access the app when I’m offline and it just fritzes. I’m not offline though. Disappointing, as it used to work great.
Been using this app for years 5/5
I’ve used this app for years and it’s always a quick way to find what I want to make. You can use the dinner spinner to name the main ingredient, amount of time and etc of what you want to cook. It’s a very good app.
Can’t print .. 2/5
Why can’t you print from the app?
Love the site 1/5
Probably will love this app. I downloaded it ten minutes ago and in 5 minutes use it has asked me to rate it four times. Even after I said 'no thanks' sooo even though I am sure it is a five star app I am giving it three because the annoyance level was about 8.5 immediately. So I rated your app.
And you are still asking me to rate this app. Two stars and pretty soon I will delete you lol! Ismh!
Update: ( at least one year later)I actually had to delete the app today because every time I tried to access allrecipes.com guess what got in the way??
So I am taking a star. Just bc I have the app doesn’t mean I will never want the website. Ugh
Error message 1/5
Unable to access some of my saved collections for 6 months. Keep getting an error message unable to connect. I have sent tons of emails and a picture of the error message with no response. I paid for this app and very disappointed in their customer service😡
The app only works when you have WiFi. Not helpful.
It’s okay... 3/5
The app is okay.. it’s really lacking recipes and the search system is faulty. The “randomizing” wheel doesn’t work. At all. Other than that it works well.
So disappointing 1/5
Allrecipes used to be my go to place. They had a fantastic app and website. It is now pure garbage. Why did you mess up a good thing??? Why??
Recipes are easy 5/5
By Tippers Mom
I’ve never cooked in my life until 5 years ago. I’m 68? Lol my mom taught cooking on Tv and my brother is a great cook.
Right now I’m making Apple Fritters. I can either over or undercook and use everything in the kitchen. I love these recipes and recommend them to other new cook for their ease. B. FL
Could be better 2/5
I have used allrecipes off and on for years. Unfortunately, I downloaded the app and remembered why I haven’t used it recently. It’s glitchy. It’s slow... so.... slow. It won’t display pictures but you can at least scroll down to see the recipe, or it will error out and you have to exit the app completely. I love the website and all of the recipes on there, and the shopping list is great for at the grocery store. But it would be nice if the app actually worked. It’s not very easy to explore new recipes, and when you search for something it takes forever to load.
It’s 2018. You would think a company with allrecipes presences would be able to build a decent app. Improvements which could be made:
1. Make it faster
2. Fix the glitches
3. Make it easier to explore new recipes on the app itself.
4. Get rid of dinner spinner. It’s stupid and useless. Or fix it so that it returns actual recipes (as it is, it currently doesn’t return anything for me 🤷🏼♀️)
App review 1/5
I have enjoyed Allrecipes through Facebook and computer. The app is very frustrating. I had to delete it twice and it still shows a spoon mixing something in a bowl and gives me a weird notice of connecting issue. I have full bars and WiFi so it’s frustrating to say the least.
Was a go to. Now it’s a don’t go. 1/5
I was a huge user of allrecipes. I used it daily to plan meals, create shopping lists and cook food. I amassed a large library of go-to recipes for almost any occasion. I simply loved this app and site.
But my enthusiasm changed once they updated the site and app for a more slick, pin it look. The app and site now take longer to load, collections can only be sorted by creation date vs alphabetically and the shopping list categories are frustrating in that they appear in some random listing-why they never just made it alphabetical is just baffling. That’s on top of the gross error that occurs when you add An item to a grocery list. The amount of the item is almost always off and you end up buying more than needed.
But the big hit cane in summer of 2018. Collections of mine were lost or unable to be viewed through some programming error both in app and on site. I have rebuilt these collections only to have it happen again. I have placed several support requests (4 to be exact) and not one has been answered. Others u have read have had the same issue.
As a result of this error and their horrible support, I have simply moved on. It’s a shame too because it was once the best go-to cooking app.
DO NOT USE IT! 1/5
I had several great recipes I had culled from that were available over the last 4 years. Now all of a sudden my screen name and password don’t work and it wants me to create a profile. I have now lost all those wonderful ‘go to’ recipes. Just use the website, don’t use the app.
Ive had this app for a long time and now its aweful. The dinner spinner doesnt even work. Waste of an app
App service needs to be better 3/5
Still lots of glitches. Keeps freezing on me
The app used to be great 1/5
Lately I can’t get any recipes to pull up in my app. No matter what I try! It’s frustrating to need a recipe but can’t get into it. Used to never have this issue. Disappointed!
No response from customer support 1/5
By Slow email
Have been using this app for years as my online recipe collection. Have uploaded 300+ recipes over time. Have not always found the app easy or intuitive, but now two collections (@75 personal recipes) are inaccessible...and have been for weeks. No one is responding from customer service. Time to find a new online recipe app.
