Pros and cons of Recipe Gallery app for iPhone and iPad

Recipe Gallery app good for

Ive been using this App for some time and Im addicted. I have input recipes into the app using the suggested modes of transfer and all have worked with no issues. I like the edit function of categories and have added a few of my own. As well, the recipe script enlarges to fit iPad screen which is great during preparation. The watercolour is a wonderful and classy touch. Im recommending this App to friends! The ease of use and the e-mail feature adds to the enjoyment of the App. Highly recommended:)
I love this app. Ive tried about 10 different ones that cost more money and this one is the best. A suggestion though, it would nice to have a planned recipe list in the app that you can drop the recipes into which you are planning to make for a certain occasion so you dont have to scroll through all the recipes again to find them. The other option would be to have bookmarks. Thats the only knock I have with the app.
Love this app, easy to take pictures of old recipes already collected!
Love this app, was able to add a recipe in my Grandmothers handwriting and just as easily download from the Internet. I download, try it , annotate or discard as required. I like the ability to personalize the categories and so cross reference by ingredient for example.
Perfect for capturing all of my old paper recipes, as well as new ones from the web. Easy to use. Makes cooking fun!
Talk about easy! Love that when Ive copied something to the clipboard the app automatically asks me if Id like to create a recipe. The display is also nice. Highly recommended.

Some bad moments

Sucks! Clunky, time consuming, does not save time and is terrible to work with. Waste of money! Dont buy
Great app, loving it, except theres an issue with the website capture.
I loved it at first sight, but then some recipes disappeared. Nothing as annoying as having to recreate them. I’m waiting for a bug fix to give more stars.
The app just make screenshot from the website, it doesnt save it as text. Very disappointed as I need exactly this function.
App works great! However, you should be able to back out of last website to previous site, rather than having to actually re-type the site yourself (if youre able to remember it)! Also, would be wonderful if available on Laptop as well, for iCloud/typing purposes.
