Significant VoiceOver bug not speaking measurements in real time 2/5
Overall, the app is pretty accessible and well designed. The simple scale layout is nice and clean and for one slight bug, very accessible with VoiceOver. However, this one little bug makes using the app and thus the scale a difficult thing to do for blind iPhone users.
When on the field where the measurement would appear as you poured or wait or something, VoiceOver would announce it in real time, however, with the most recent updates, this is no longer the case. Now, you have to flick away and then back to the field with the measurement to have a voice over read it to you. This makes operating the app on the phone and handling whatever food or liquid you’re trying to weigh quite difficult and awkward. I wrote tech-support about this, but alas, haven’t heard anything back or an egg knowledge meant of this issue. If this one simple bug were fixed, I’d be more than happy to give it a five star rating.

This is terrible. Why does this app even exist? Who would buy these products?
Still no iPhone x support 3/5
Please update the app with what people really want to see.
Great idea! 5/5
Love the whole idea of Drop. Being able to weight my food without the need to at the scales display. Application is also very useful, especially the step by step cooking with the use of Drop. Great product overall.
Very pleased so far 5/5
By Silas the Great
The recipes are great, results are consistent, and it's fun to use. I'm a pretty experienced home cook and Drop had encouraged me to try new foods, recipes and methods. All with delicious results!
Easy to use, great recipes 5/5
So easy to use. I love the ingredient substitution suggestions as we have several food allergies in our house. The vegan GF coconut lime tart will be on my Thanksgiving table!!
Like it a lot 5/5
The recipes are great, the results consistent, and it's a fun app to use. I'm a pretty experienced cook and Drop had encouraged me to try new foods, recipes and methods. All with delicious results. 5 stars! Oh, and many thanks for the new Android app. I have a Samsung tablet that I mostly use in the kitchen and now I downloaded the Android app to that. Very helpful
2+ yrs and still waiting for recipe add or import 2/5
By Proud Patriot
I purchased a drop over 2 yrs ago "thinking" I could add my own great recipes, only to feel like I had been fooled and forced to use their recipes. Well, here we are 2+ years later and I still don't even use the device because I cannot use it as was intended, a scale that would integrate your personal recipes and scale them accordingly, and build your own library. Well, I'm still using my AnyList app for recipes and waiting on a tech company to come into maybe.....just maybe.... the 21 century. Nope, they invested in linking to appliances that very few people have, and not listening to what customers want or need. Very unfortunate....
Edit: 9/26/2017 - after speaking with drop support, you do not need to apply for beta status to start adding your own recipes, but you must use Drop Creator to do so online. I hope it progresses further and am looking forward to it finally!
Working with the Apple Watch would make it truly functional! 2/5
Why would I add another device while I cook?This requires your iPad or iPhone to see the scale. It's fiddly to switch around if you make a recipe from another app. It needs to function with the Apple Watch to avoid juggling devices!
Great App 5/5
This is a great app! I am a beginner at cooking and the step my step instructions are great!
From the beginning 5/5
I am a guy, single guy, and I don't usually measure things and that's why I love drop it just does all the technical stuff for me as far as measurements go and that's great I've made some great stuff based on this app
A Must Have Tool 5/5
I have really enjoyed using drop. In addition to tracking my diet, I use it for measuring when I bake. It is a terrific tool. My favorite feature is in the design. When I put a large container on the pad, it doesn't cover up the readout. I use it on my iPad and iPhone.
In the early version, there was a cosistent problem with dropping the connection between the app and the scale. That seems to have been pretty much corrected, though it still bombs out occasionally. That doesn't keep me from using it every day.
I do have a couple of suggestions. The battery is a rare one. When the original died, I had a hard time finding a replacement. A link on your web site might help; and something else in the next version.
I would like to see a finer measure. Tenths of grams perhaps?
Great scale and app 5/5
Keep adding recipes. Great so far.
Soup made easy 5/5
Made the best butternut squash soup with this app!
Found what I was looking for! 5/5
I just got the app and was looking for a apple crisp recipe, and within the first two pages, there it was. Along with many other recipes I can't wait to try, like the diy brown sugar recipe! Never knew there was a recipe for it! Also, I don't have a drop scale, just wanted the app for the recipes!
Easy to use 5/5
The app and scale are both great, it's made baking much easier and more streamlined. I've always been interested in baking and this helps facilitate that. I also appreciate being able to find new recipes through the app!
Great app that simplifies cooking/baking 5/5
I mostly use Drop to bake birthday treats to share with my work mates. It makes baking faster and less messy without taking away any of the fun. There are tons of great recipes already in the app, and if you want, you can add your own recipes, too. The app is so easy to use that you'll soon forget what baking was like without it!
Did not work 1/5
By Grht 33
The scale did not weigh
Doesn't work at all 1/5
Doesn't work at all tried to see if it was accurate by placing a nickel on it and it isn't reading it at all.
You Have To Get It 5/5
Drop is awesome! The scale is so precise that almost all of your measurements are perfect
I made pretzels the other day and I made Them without drop and the ones using drop were so delicious!! 10/10 5 stars
Nice app 5/5
Love this app great for a foodie like me
Great scale...very sensitive 5/5
By Lewd and lascivious
I requested this for a birthday present, and I have only been using it as a scale for food portions. It works wonderfully and I'm really looking forward to trying out some of the recipes, too.
By Junbang Huang
useful for a inexperienced cooker
Perfect for the food geek 4/5
Loving this app so far. Can't wait til they add a casserole section and they add more recipes.
Lol at you idea of a app 1/5
This app is as pointless as Kim Kardashian,

By Mikey _coolP
Great food ideas
I LOVE DROP BUT... 4/5
Please add the ability to enter your own recipe!!!! Then I would give it 5 stars!
Would give zero stars if possible. Waste of time, nonsense doesn't even work.

Love Drop! 5/5
By Mama chile
Drop has changed the way I cook!
It's easy to use, the selection of recipes is varied and interesting, and everything I've made has turned out great!
It's perfect for the experienced cook, like me, and for the novice, like my husband. Results are always consistent, thanks to the easy to follow directions, tips and photos.
I've finished about 50 of these and they taste amazing
By Moomoo and Scarlet
Drop is the best app I have! I love it. I didn't have an ingredient at home, so the drop app gave me substitutes.
Drop is like having a professional chef in your kitchen helping you every step of the way. Cooking, baking, and cocktail making could not be any more simple.
I love a kitchen scale. Go figure. 4/5
Looks good. Works. Intuitive. And the staff is great about working on creating new things all the time. Five stars when it's easier to import/export recipes and create your own.
👍🏻smart invention / Will make life a lot easier 5/5

Scale don't work 1/5
By Majin Bone
Bunch of crap
Great app and recipe selection. The drop scale is a awesome!
Gotta get one! 4/5
Received my Drop as a Christmas gift and love everything about it-especially the ability to adjust number of servings!! The only improvement I could suggest would bethe ability to upload my own recipes.
Fun for new baker 5/5
I am reasonably good at grilling/smoking on a Big Green Egg but not much of a cook otherwise. Wife is bedbound and I'm trying to expand our diet from microwave and ordering out. I received a Kitchenaid mixer and the Drop for Christmas. Have only made simple brownies so far but it was fun and straightforward. For those new to baking/cooking and kids I think this is a wonderful tool.
It is a really cool scale. Who ever thought of this must have kids because mine love to bake now. It's so easy. The only reason I gave it four stars is, seems some of the recipes are disappearing. Not sure what is going on but it was a little inconvenient. I bought all the ingredients for a healthy bread and by the time I got home to make it, it had vanished. No matter, I still love my drop kitchen. I'm sure once they get the kinks out, it will be just fine.
Worth it and then some. Only way to bake!
I absolutely love my drop scale!! I got 3 more as Christmas gifts for my family!
Love it 5/5
Great app and great scale, love it :)
Keep doing what ur doing Awesome
Couldn't bake before, now I'm learning about the math, science, and fun all because of this little app.
Making baking less scary and more delicious 5/5
Absolutely love my Drop scales - and so thrilled the iPhone recipe app is here and working so smoothly! Very excited about the end to baking disasters in my kitchen 😀
Easy to use 5/5
This app is great and easy to use. All the recipes I've tried have turned out delicious.
Drop helped me pull it off! 5/5
I'm a complete novice at baking so decided to experiment with Drop to see how I'd get on. The no-bake chocolate brownies looked perfect as they are gluten free, paleo, raw :) I followed the easy to understand steps (actually foolproof!) while the Drop scale did the hard work and lo and behold, the brownies turned out a treat! I served them as dessert at my dinner party and they went down a treat. Thank you Drop. Looking forward to making more soon :)
