Not good anymore 2/5
I used to love this app and used it all the time. Now it’s so slow to search that it’s quicker to use google and search, the Allrecipes recipes come up quicker. And I’ve all but given up using my ‘favorites ‘ as it takes longer to open than I am willing to wait.
This app is good 4/5
By Kitten 10110
I like this app but dinner spinner is not available on iPad app and you can only post recipes on browser website.
Not very accessible with voiceover 1/5
Many unlabeled buttons, which makes it difficult for blind or low vision users to access this app.
Just horrible. 1/5
I've Never actually wrote a review for an app before but this one is so bad I had to. You can search in the search bar for something specific, OR browse their suggestions for you. THATS IT no other browsing methods, this app is so poorly made.
Also you can't enlarge or zoom on photos... this should be fixed. They're recipe/food photos for crying out loud, did the programmers think no one would want to zoom!?😒
It keeps freezing. Unfortunate. 2/5
This is my go-to sure for great recipes. I’m finally had it with the app, because it freezes constantly. I know I’m not the only one experiencing it, after talking to a couple other co-workers that has this app. Please fix with an update.
Can’t print from app! 2/5
I like the website better than the app. Main reason is that I can’t print from the app. So frustrating because I then have to find the recipe in the website and force it to open in a web browser (if I click a link to an allrecipe.com recipe it automatically opens the app).
How can one of the best recipe sites have such a terrible app? 1/5
I can’t even sign in with my google account and what is with the pop up ads?
I’d pay good money for a decent ad-free app from you all.
Good app but.. 4/5
By Me 742578051380
I think the app is pretty good, I love searching for recipes and the fact that I can click to select ingredients to add to my shopping list is awesome. I do wish this app had the capability of a calendar, where I could save my recipes to and when I’m planning my cooking they are saved there too. I think that would be a feature that would put this app above the rest!
Best muffins and desserts ever 5/5
Alive the sweet recipes and the dinners are great
Great website, mediocre app. 3/5
The website is great. The app is functional but honestly not worth my time. An ad pops up like every 45 seconds.
Couldn’t login 2/5
After making an account on the website with google the app wouldn’t take my google info. After double checking I’m certain I entered it correct. If that was fixed I’d love to see the full extent of the app.
I like allrecipes but this app is junk. It just doesn’t work.
Brand name, packaged mix, brand name 2/5
I use recipes to make food. If I wanted to make mixes I'd buy boxes or packets and follow the instructions on the package. It's bad enough to have occasional products thrown in that can't be duplicated with just something normal from my fridge or cupboard… it's worse when the base of the recipe is a package for that thing itself. I don't need to make cakes starting with a cake mix, "buttercream" from a container of whatever that frosting stuff is by the cake mixes, a rice dish starting with a seasoned rice "meal"- I quit doing that when I was in 5th grade. Make an app for people who need that, ok? Make an app for cooks. Keep them apart. Ok- sometimes shortcuts are handy but let us set parameters like "no mixes of XYZ type".
Probably the worst app I’ve ever used. Doesn’t work half the time. Between this and the website, it’s probably one of the worst designed interfaces I’ve ever seen. How have you not fired these people?
Can't print, really bad compared to old one 1/5
I had the all recipes (no “dinner spinner”) from 2012 but now they have this one which doesn,t work on ipad. So ☹️. I loved printing out recipes, it made browsing easier with indexes, it won't download to iPad. Useless. Sad to see a good app that has been ruined!
I never see new recipes; it shows me the same 6 always. Not an intuitive search option. And the dinner spinner is ridiculous. I’d rather be able to randomly choose a completely random recipe than “dessert, 2 hours, pork.”
Printing would be a nice addition 3/5
I like this app except for it lacking two desireable features; The ability to keep the screen open while on a recipe and the ability to print the recipe text to my wireless printer. The existing print capability only prints pictures and who follows pictures?
What’s the point of an app if you have to go to the website 2/5
Super annoying when you have to go to the website to print. I almost always tweak a recipe based on comments or personal preference. THERE IS NO OPTION TO PRINT FROM THE IOS VERSION OF THE APP! When you click tech support, it gives you all this blah blah blah about using a supported browser, clearing your cache, etc.
The search functionality is so-so. I’ve had to go to the web version when a specific recipe doesn’t show up in the app.
This is ok 3/5
I’m going to be honest with you and say that the app has been very helpful but it doesn’t have the dinner spinner and the resources said that it would have been better but it’s still a great way to get dinner in a different way.
I would rate this app a zero if I could. That dinner spinner is absolutely useless I can’t understand why I can’t get the app that I have on my iPad, . I keep thinking I’m using The app wrong but I have discovered I’m using it correctly and the app is just this bad. I will delete the app and continually just Google Allrecipes.com . Terrible
First review... not a good one! 1/5
I have used All Recipes for years! It is a great thing to get recipes and meal ideas that are easy and practical.
So what is so bad?
The App!!! I have an iPhone... on my computer I can access everything in a snap! On my phone?? “Oops! Something went wrong! Try again later!” Comes up more than a recipe!! No matter what type of reception or phone! I have no other app that is as frustrating as this app is! Do use All Recipes.com; just not this app!!!
Can’t search? 1/5
Try searching and it only returns today’s recommendations. Used to be go to app for recipes. Several of my faves came from here but the app is literally unusable.
Used to love this app 1/5
Now that AllRecipes has removed the print icon and I cannot print directions from my phone, it is less useful. Come on, AllRecipes. Help me out!
Makes keeping track of recipes easy and quick. However, over the last few months it’s become unusable because it is o slow and often times out. Unfortunately I’m done. I’ll be uninstalling and using another app
Every time I try to use the app, it has a fetching error. It’s extremely frustrating. I had to delete the app so I could look up my recipes online.
Was working ok before, but now it won’t let me access any of the recipes I’ve saved thus rendering it pointless and a waste of my time.
Love this app! 5/5
I love this app! I can find just about any recipe that I’m looking for and then I can save them in my own recipe box. I recommend it to all my cooking friends.
App won’t load 1/5
I’m deleting this app and will use the website as this app doesn’t ever load.
I don’t comment on anything normally. But ever since I started to use this app it ALWAYS freezes. I will be in one recipe, and if I want to get out to look at another recipe it freezes. It won’t let me close that recipe out, scroll, or even swipe to the next/previous recipe. You should really fix that problem.
Please get rid of “Recently saved to your favorites” 4/5
By Mason Dyer
It’s weird, redundant and out of place. It should not be there because the “recipes” section in “favorites” is already there to serve this purpose. So you’re basically superimposing another basic section on top of every other section. We just have to swipe it down to push it away every time. It’s just weird, please just remove it.
What happened super buggy now. 2/5
By Five O
Super buggy. Adding recipes on Insta it not on the app itself. Used this for years, looking for a new app.
It’s ok 2/5
I’ve like the app in the past. I went to go back on it and the mixing bowl with a spoon keeps idiling. Nothing else. Is the app still available?
Never works 1/5
Every time I try to look up a recipe, it either takes forever or times out. Absolutely useless.
App doesn’t load 2/5
The app is very slow if it loads at all. I’ve just switched to using their website because the app is frustrating to deal with.
I’ve used so many recipe apps and this one is by far the best I’ve used it has so many options and any recipe I’ve used from it was not disappointing at all and very satisfying. I highly recommend!
Ads ads ads 1/5
By no thank ewe
I used to love this app. I’ve been using it in combination with the website for years. Now I can’t so much as read a recipe without an ad/video popping up every few seconds. Incredibly frustrating.
Non existent customer service 1/5
By Wolfy McWolferson
I loved this app, now I’m searching for a new one. There is no option to add a recipe, as advertised. The “How to” on their website seams outdated as the buttons listed in the instructions no longer exist. Calling customer service they could only give an email; I emailed twice only to be ignored.
-update your website
-answer your emails
-don’t advertise things you don’t offer
What’s happened? 2/5
This app, just like allrecipes itself, used to be so much better than it is now. The final straw for me? Advertisements? Seriously? I’m an allrecipes member. Since when did you start adding the advertisements, and why do people who pay for your service still get them?
No point in paying.
By Micci Snowfall
As a total foodie that has multiple food allergies, this app is incredibly disappointing.
One can sort out specific ingredients (ie, that shrimp that would equal an ER trip); however, it doesn’t save the preference and doesn’t incorporate it into the feed (which hasn’t changed in months - I’ve already made chef John’s porchetta, it was nice but I don’t need it every day!), nor does it save it in the search function. There’s no allergy awareness at all IMO.
For my “tastes”, I have almost everything selected, and yet the occasional email only includes weight loss/dieting recipes. How about any other section? I’m looking for inspiration and unique things. If I specifically search for a recipe, there’s a likely chance I can find it, but there’s no effort to help expand my culinary exposure (which is such a shame).
If you don’t want anything new, have no allergies and are already only looking for specific dishes, it’s a fine app. It fails on all other levels.
Only way I found to print was screenshot, that cost two stars
Way too many issues 1/5
I’ve had my all recipe account since 2014!!! I can’t log in, I can’t save anything, when I was logged in my account was showing us “sexywexyl.blah blah blah.” All of my recipes I’ve saved are gone, all of the recipes I’ve made are gone, and I can’t save anything.
I’m deleting this app. I don’t even want to use it anymore. I can’t log into my account, it just keeps saying “user has already created a account with that information” I KNOW, IM TRYING TO SIGN IN 🙄
Not to mention, it constantly closes and the app glitches.
Use a different app 2/5
By HD Chick
My suggestion feed hasn’t changed in months, but even more aggravating is finding the recipes for the week, saving them into the preferred recipe file, going out and buying all the ingredients for all of them for the week, then not a single one is saved anywhere. You have to try your luck and look it up by name, and good luck with finding the right one. But if you do, it’s still favorited!! Seriously, what in the actual F?
No technical support 1/5
The app no longer lets me in. I logged in always through Facebook, but now says the account with my name belongs to someone else.
Multiple (10+) e-mails have been written and unanswered from technical support.
Print Recipes? 2/5
By karyns strong warrior
I would love this app if I were able to figure out how to print recipes from it. If I’m using my phone for other things, it’s frustrating to have to toggle between pages while I’m cooking. A lot of times I find myself avoiding recipes on allrecipes just because I can’t print it out.
Search doesn’t work 1/5
The search bar doesn’t work. It keeps displaying the feed after search is pressed.
On IPhone 2/5
My app hasn’t been working for months. Dont know how to update app, and it just keeps searching for a recipes
Not compatible with iTunes 2/5
By Magpie Lark
Don’t get this App if you like cooking while listening to music. The App cuts off iTunes when open to some recipes. Very frustrating.
What happened? 1/5
This used to be my go-to app for almost everything. However, it changed and recipes were hard to find and tended to only show a few certain ones, no matter what I changed. Now, after not visiting for a few months, it doesn’t even show me anything. It’s literally blank and won’t even load. What happened to this app because it used to be so good?
