    I have been using Paprika for managing my recipes for probably 7 years now and I just wanted to say thank you for keeping it up to date!!
  • Awesome Timesaver

    By Merely Martha
    I am crazy about this app! I had recipes all over the place and it drove this neat freak nuts! I love that I'm able to put any recipe on this app and find it easily! Suggested Updates • Add categories to the main sorting menu. • Enable texting of grocery list. Thanks for making it so easy to find my favorite dishes in a flash!
  • Can't scale amounts in the Instructions

    By Fwilger
    I would give this 5 stars, but when you scale, it only scales the ingredients. Example : Say recipe calls for 1 cup wine 3 cup stock , and instructions say to reduce to 1/3 cup. Ok fine. Scale the recipe 1 1/2x but it will STILL say to reduce to 1/3 cup when the now the 1 1/2 scaled liquid is 6 cups total. The scaled reduction amount should in fact be 1 cup not 1/3. The scaling feature does transfer over to the instructions. That being said, it still is one of the best cloud recipe managers out there. I recommend it.
  • 5+ Star app except...

    By Redwoodgirl3
    Intuitive. User friendly. My main app for storing and using recipes. Would LOVE if you would make it so that for the recipe you could add more than one picture. I would like the option to add a new picture and notes each time I make something so I can go through them. Because I make tweaks along the way, having a picture and a note for each time I made a specific recipe would be a great help. Thank you!
  • Absolutely love it!!

    By el3asfourah
    From loading the recipes to adding the ingredients to a shopping list, this app is absolutely amazing. It's easy to use and straight forward. It's an excellent way to organize all your recipes (especially the ones you find on websites and blogs) in one place with easy access. When using the app to cook, it stays on with the screen unlocked for a long time which makes it much easier! It is worth every penny and I strongly recommend it!
  • Terrific recipe app!

    I've used this app for over 4 years now using it on three devices, iPhone, iPad and laptop. I am very happy with this tool. I can sync my recipes across all devices which I love. The ability to seamless download recipes is amazingly useful. For special occasions the menu tools are a big plus. Highly recommend this app.
  • OBSESSED with this app!!!!

    By mrsebm
    I've been telling everyone about this app, for me and my family it's been a game changer! I typically save tons of recipes in Pinterest but hate scrolling through lengthy blog entries to get to the items needed and how you actually make the dish. Now, I just copy the recipe from Pinterest, Paprika asks me if I want to load it, and within seconds the pertinent information is culled and organized!! I rarely cook a meal without using Paprika now. Cannot say enough wonderful things, this app is a MUST!!!!
  • This app is incredible. Earned a place on my home screen.

    By Dancin Nancy
    I once said I am no cook. Paprikais changing that. I am trying new recipes. It is so easy to prop open my iPad and follow it as I cook. It is particularly incredible to use with my Instant Pot. It is unbelievably easy. No matter where the recipe is online, all you do is open Paprika, load that URL and click on "save recipe". Paprika has its own browser. If you copy a URL from your own browser, Paprika sees you have have copied the URL and loads it for you. I gifted this app to my daughter. She is particularly pleased with how it will load a grocery list with a click. I bought the desktop app ($20), also. I have one account that can be used on my iPhone, iPad and desktop.
  • Fantastic recipe manager!

    By jstilly
    After years of searching for a the perfect digital recipe index, I finally discovered Paprika about a year ago. Importing recipes was easy using the share tool on iOS. Adding new recipes and keeping them organized is equally user friendly.I use Paprika more than almost any other app on my phone. Worth every penny, especially if you set up cloud sync and are willing to Spring for the iPad and MacOS apps as well. Cannot recommend this highly enough, it has every feature a well seasoned cook could possibly want.

    If I could give this app 10 stars, I would. I love it. I use it every day. Planning meals and making grocery lists was such a pain before, so I often just didn't. Now I browse the app, see something that looks good, choose the grocery list icon and I'm set. I love that when I am out and about, I can say, "I need to get something for dinner" and I can choose something on the spot. The app provides the grocery list for me. The other thing I love is how easy it is to save recipes from the Internet. I also love how easy it is to scale recipes. This is the best app I have ever purchased. I'm usually pretty cheap when it comes to paying for apps. I'm so glad I got this. I got it for my iPad, iPhone and PC. It seamlessly syncs between them. I use my iPad when cooking and my iPhone when shopping and my PC when I want to type in a recipe myself. If you get this app, you will not be sorry. Oh, and I recommended this to someone who then got it. I love that I can send her recipes and they load right into her app. By the way, I found out about this app from a Facebook group: "Instant Pot Community." It is very popular with that huge Facebook group.
