Worst crap app! 1/5
Crashes, doesn’t connect, doesn’t work when you’re in the grocery shopping for the list you created hoping this would be a pleasant experience. Logs you out and won’t log you back in. CRAP APP!!!
Last update has killed this great app 1/5
Since the last update, I can no longer sign in with my Facebook connection, it will not search and just keeps saying “fetching recipes” and never finishes. Sad... this used to be a great app that I used all of the time.
Great recipes 4/5
I love the app. I use it a lot for cooking and the videos are great for seeing how it’s done. The last update has something wrong. The screen will often freeze. Sometimes it will work after a few minutes but often I have to close app and reopen. Very frustrating when I’m trying to scroll down for directions or up to see ingredient amounts. Please fix
A great fix (at least for me) 4/5
I was having all known kinds of problems. I clicked on a recipe in an email and my browser is having a heart attack. But it seems all is well sun is shining and the birds are sinking.
This app is great for my hobby of saving more recipes than I could make in a lifetime. I like to look at many different recipes for a dish I want to make. I sort of mentally mix and match all the ingredients in the various recipes. I end up with a dish I can call my own and since I cook like my mom (never actually measure anything) it provides all I need to turn out a dish. If the fix holds up I can hopefully recover the ones from my email and get them tagged as favorites. Overall a great app.
Great app when it works 2/5
The recipes are good when the app works. Unfortunately it shuts down and will not work when it was needed. I have given up on the app and now use other apps to find recipes and ingredients.
Recent update killed the app 1/5
Won’t load, just keeps loading and loading, nothing comes up
useless since update 1/5
unable to search recipes anymore - only shows me “today’s recommendations”
broken app, find another
Basic functions missing 2/5
I really do enjoy this website and don't see how the app offers anything new? Both could use some super basic upgrades to the search functions. For instance let's say I want to make a certain soup that isn't a crockpot recipe in the crockpot. There should be a way to search the reviews to see if someone has done it that way and their insight and advice. As of now I have to weed through hundreds of reviews for "crock pot" or "slow cooker" its tedious and annoying. Take a page from amazon.com and add this functionality, please
Pro needs update!! 1/5
I paid for the pro awhile back and can’t even use it!! It just says needs update.
I shouldn’t have to have 2 of the same app on my phone.
Connectivity issues 2/5
I’m having tons of connectivity issues whether I’m on WiFi or not. It’s getting to point where I’m thinking of ditching the app which was my go-to app for quick easy recipes. I hope there’s a fix out there.
Mr J 1/5
Could you please make this app more helpful by having it somewhat answer the question typed. I asked it how to make white wine sauce and it gave me choices of calamari or homemade pizza sauce. ?????? Really!
Pretty good. Needs more features 3/5
Nice for quick browsing, might get lucky and find a recipe you like quickly, and you’re easily able to add ingredients to your shopping list, as a whole of individually.
Cons: Search function is very limited. There’s no where to indicate if you’re looking for a main dish vs dessert, etc. Type in tofu and you’ll get “tofu cheesecake” listed right next to “tofu mayo” and “braised tofu”. You can EITHER sort by relevance or rating; better to be able to sort relevant options, showing top rated dishes first.
Not as good as it used to be 2/5
This app used to be my favorite recipe app. I have spent so much time building a recipe book. Now it is covered with adds and you barely get half the screen for the actual recipe. Please get rid of the adds!
Good Recipes, but Limited Printing From Mobile 3/5
I have been able to find many great recipes with this app, but from the mobile app there does not seem to be a print version, as there is on the website.
I usually use HP Smart to print from my phone with very good results. No help from All Recipes, however. Consider this a feature request!
I love the recipe options in this app, and have prepared a few delicious meals. But this app is SO SLOW! It doesn’t matter if I have perfect service or no service/WiFi... it is terribly slow. Which makes it frustrating when it comes meal time because it almost takes too long to pull up any recipe to make it worth it. I’ll be trying a different recipe app for now.
I love the Recipes but hate the app 1/5
I have been using this site and app for several years to find fantastic recipes. I have ALWAYS been frustrated with the app. It have never failed to be glitchy and prone to crashing right when you really need it to work. I’ll be mid-meal, hands covered in ingredients, trying to follow along on the app and POOF! Gone. Have to stop what I’m doing and try to make it work again and pick up where I left off (often to experience the same crash over and over). Very frustrating. I had hoped over the years Allrecipes would get their stuff together and fix the plethora of bugs on this app, but it’s just as awful as it’s always been. Stick to the site and don’t bother downloading this, let alone paying for it.
The app never works! It’s always stuck on fetching recipes.
Fix it 1/5
When I first open the app, I see a page that says 'today’s recipes.' But the same recipes are there day after day, after day, after day, etc. Please fix this with a GOOD update.
I would bet thousands.... 3/5
All Recipes would do themselves a MASSIVE favor if they would provide an Ad-less version of this app in which I WOULD BET THOUSANDS like myself would be happy to shell out a few bucks a year for.
It is such a SHAME that finding recipes and reading their reviews, has to be completely ruined by the Ads which 75% of the time are completely INAPPROPRIATE for all ages. There are a lot of children learning to cook these days with the popularity of cooking shows.
What a breath of fresh air it would be for one company to stand up for what’s right —rather than running scared and taking the easy way out by not giving a whit about what ads they’ll take money for.
Whenever i open the app it crashes
Ok app but slow 2/5
Unbelievably slow on My iPhone 7 running latest iOS 11.
Hurry up and wait 2/5
I’m giving this app to stars, when in reality it’s probably only a one. The website is way easier to use and find recipes. Reluctantly I keep coming back to the app hoping it’s better, but at least half the time I try, I get an error message that it’s on able to connect. Great concept, but not ready for prime time... :(
I loved this app, but recently it has started freezing constantly. If I click on a picture, it freezes and I have to restart the app completely. The same thing happens if I am trying to read the description or if I scroll down on reviews. Please update!
I Use The App All The Time 4/5
I’m a big fan of the app and love when a new recipe I want to try has a video along with it. I like reviewing the recipes and reading other reviewers suggestions. One thing that’s bothersome is when I go to upload a pic of a recipe I made, I always get an error saying my photo isn’t large enough. It’s just a regular pic from my iPhone. I don’t understand that part..
Prefer the other app 1/5
I used to use their other app and would prefer to use it again, but they haven’t updated it to be compatible with iOS 11. Please update your other app.
Gets Stuck on Initial Startup Screen 1/5
The "Fetching Recipes" loading screen does not end. I've tried restarting the app, restarting my phone, opening the app from a website recipe link, letting it sit for 5 minutes in the foreground, 30+ minutes in the background, and I still can't get further than the loading screen.
Bug Report 2/5
Does not allow nor function w Bluetooth Keypads. Only programmed to accept Apple Softboard input into search fields thus, cannot type into user search field. Needs updating to be made to work w external Bluetooth input devices.
Good app 4/5
Enjoy the recipes.
Video portion 1/5
Please fix the video portion of the recipes that have videos. They do not work. They crash all the time
Terrible App 1/5
By Tracy's apple tv
I’ve been somewhat using this app for 5 years now...and as of yet it still disappoints me. It never works, it constantly crashes, it takes forever to load and more often than not I end up with some error message that there is some problem with the network (which is not true because everything else on my phone works. I just really hate this app because every time I go to use it it causes frustration.
Cant login with Google Sign-In 1/5
I created my account on the computer with Google Sign-In. Mobile app doesnt support sign in with this feature, meaning I cant even sign in.
Looking for a new app 1/5
I’m sorry but this app is horrible. I cannot print any recipes. I used to use this app every day. Not so much now.
Loved for yrs but 2/5
I’ve been having problems with the app since the most recent update. The ads won’t play & it will not allow me to watch the videos. There are things in the video they tell you that isn’t in the directions.
Excessive ad 1/5
There I was enjoying this app trying to figure out what's for dinner when it opens safari and transfers to an ad. So thinking maybe I accidentally clicked an ad I just go back to the app. But no, it immediately sends me back to the ad page. I had to shut down the app after trying over 8 times to just view a recipe. I understand ads are a part of a free app but this is BS. It shouldn't give you only this ad. This is the same reason I stopped using the foodnetwork app too. I guess I'll find another one.
Videos will not play 1/5
I have enjoyed this app on both android and apple devices. However, since the last iOS update and latest app update the videos do not play. I will either see a black screen or the video will freeze, I get the same results using WiFi and LTE networks. I have tried troubleshooting the issue by uninstalling and reinstalling the app and factory wiping my phone, but the issue still persists. Please fix soon
Ruined with Ads and no paid upgrade 1/5
I decided to start using this app again only to find that it has been ruined with Ads!!! On top of that there is no option to upgrade to a version without ads. On an iPhone there is too much real estate taken up be ads!!! Time to find a new app!!!
Good app but very slow 3/5
I love this app but it’s a shame that it’s so slow. Please fix loading speed
We were in love, but now I hate you 2/5
All Recipe - Meredith has ruined you! She has let you search aimlessly. Your web and app cause nothing but frustration. You used to be our star dinner guest getting credit for another fabulous meal, but now just getting you to retrieve a recipe takes minutes, if at all. I used to send you out for groceries, but now I’m looking for a new delivery boy. I hope you sober up before you lose all the folks who still care about you. All Recipes is All Gone...
Crashing every time I download!! 1/5
I have downloaded this app on three different occasions over the last 6 months and all three times it flickers and crashes. I have an iPhone 7 and find it hard to believe that is the cause.
May contain malware 1/5
I keep periodically encountering malware-like screen jitteriness from this app. 2 or 3 times over the last several versions, it has jiggled so much that it is unusable and I just have to keep closing the app each time I open it. Invariably, sometimes soon afterwards, my husband's Android detects malware in my texts to him. When I delete and then re-download the app, the jitteriness disappears and the malware detections also stop. I just had my most recent onset of Allrecipes jitteriness yesterday. As usual, it has not gone away on its own. Uninstalling again and not feeling great about this.
❗️Should be fixed❗️ 2/5
I wanted to use this app to find recipes, but making them is very hard! I can’t figure out how to create my own recipe, I have to use the website to make one, which makes having the app kind of pointless. Also, the app is never working. It is always breaking down, and never loads up.
Allrecipes hates music! 1/5
Probably not really, but the app will silence any music app I put on so I can cook with music playing. A silent kitchen might be good for a restaurant, but not when I’m making dinner at home.
Nice work, but VoiceOver improvements needed 3/5
I’ve always enjoyed looking up recipes, but some of the VoiceOver improvements needed include labeling buttons and fixing it so I can navigate in and out of a recipe and my shopping list. The foods mentioned here though are pretty good and I’ve made several of these recipes, but I want to add more and use this version more. Please test this app with VoiceOver to ensure access for all the cooks who are blind.
You cannot print off of it—-fix the dam thing BEFORE you publish it!!!
Love allrecipes 5/5
By User female
I've been on allrecipes for 8 years and I just love the variety of recipes and the fact that they're always adding new recipes, I imagine, everyday! I also like that the app syncs with the website by implementing the Tastes feature. Fantastic app!
Love it. Would be better if... 4/5
By Bz working mom
Love this service.
One suggestion is to be able to Permanently exclude certain foods from daily recipe feed. Feature should be available,when setting likes setup. For example we do not eat pork so I do not want to see any recipes containing pork, bacon, ham etc in my recipe feed. Currently i can restrict recipe feed using only temporary exclusions that need to be reset each time. Such a drag. Thank you!
CANT PRINT RECIPES 3/5
By Shirl Pearl
I need to print the recipe
Years of service 5/5
I have been using AllRecipes for YEARS, and have recommended it to friends. To me, other apps don’t add up. It meets all my needs as far as a recipe app.
By River Dawg
Can no longer print from app. Printer button is gone
Been using this app for years. I updated this app the last time. Lost all my favorites , now I can’t even log on. Very angry, will probably delete this app now and try to find something else.
