  • Not the quite the perfect home kitchen app

    By Hannah's Father
    Paprika is a great product. Had version 2 for years, and felt the new features could warrant the new purchase cost. The pantry portion was hoped to be an excellent addition to allow my wife and I to manage both the menu planning and freezer/pantry management. Alas, the pantry items only get one key word “Aisle,” which is not enough to really manage the pantry. It should reference my home pantry, not the grocery store location! If the keywords were customizable, you could have the location, type of container, type of item - ie. basement freezer, vacusealed, green beans - could direct your recipe plans. Also, this would be synced between devices. Super cool. Alas, this app needs some sort of companion app in order keep track of what you have on your shelf or in the freezer. Paprika 3 is excellent, but not perfect.
  • Annoyed that I can’t contact you easily

    By Jonathan123
    No way to email or send a message that I could see. All I wanted to do was make a few suggestions. It would be nice if there were and easier way to add notes and to rate a recipe. That way you can do it quickly from the recipe while working on it.
  • Awesome recipe keeper

    By plcason
    This is the best recipe keeper. I love that you can look up a recipe online and download it with pictures. You can categorize them, edit them and add your own recipes and pictures. With Paprika 3 and Apple Share it can link to your iPad, iPhone and other family members. Great App.
  • If I could give it more than 5 stars I would!

    By ArkCarver
    This is, without a shadow of a doubt, the best recipe app you could imagine. I have it on my Mac, my iPad, and my iPhone and have been using it for over a year. I now have nearly 2000 recipes in Paprika and cannot even imagine how many hours it has saved me. I could not have believed they could make it any better but the latest upgrade has done just that. The ability to make notes, add a recipe to numerous user-defined categories, make menus, shopping lists, and even arrange those lists by the aisles at the supermarket are unbelievably helpful. If you are hesitating to purchase this app, wait no longer. I used to have tons of recipes on paper waiting to be transcribed to the web or organized into notebooks. No more. The ability to download directly from the web and have it parsed correctly is invaluable.
  • Disappointed with new upgrade

    By Meighan O'Toole
    I’m so sad I deleted my last Paprika. This new update/new app is not an improvement. I was happy to pay for the new app, but this experience has been less than good. I used to recommend this app to everyone but I can’t anymore. I’ve noticed so many issues but the biggest is how it imports the recipes. They’re always missing something like directions or ingredients - kind of a big deal. Prior I loved Paprika because I never had to look at a 3 mile long recipe blog post, but now I constantly have to go back and check due to a wonky import. Here’s hoping this changes with updates.
  • Finally!

    By biztec
    This is the app I’ve been waiting years to find. I had recipes on my desktop, in MasterCook, BigOven, Pinterest, and many other cubbyholes. Now everything is in one place and I have the utmost flexibility to add from websites, enter from scratch, or edit my current recipes. Hooray!
  • Love, but missing a feature...

    By DetVols
    I love this app, but the old app had a feature that imported a url when it found one copied from outside the app. The new app doesn’t seem to recognize copied urls anymore. Can we get a fix for that?
  • I was not impressed with the “enhancements”

    By Simply Sofie
    I’ve been using the Paprika app for almost a year now and it has met most of my needs. I like that it’s very reliable but I do have a few items I’d like to “wishlist” for a 5-Star review: - add an option to manage/edit categories (if I change my mind about how I sorted something out, there’s no way to make changes) I also realized that sometimes my iPad failed to sync and I ended up with duplicates) - load the last link you had up in the app browser vs reloading the home page (I have two babies and sometimes—okay, most of the time—I need to drop what I’m doing to take care of something or the other. It frustrates me beyond words when I was on to something exciting and I lost the recipe because I was interrupted or I fell asleep and my phone decided to update the software.) - add an alert for duplicate entries—I’m a sleep-deprived mom and I would really appreciate some help in not spending time documenting something I had already spent time on before. It would certainly be an awesome feature. (Kinda like Pinterest letting you know that you already pinned something before) - I’m not crazy about not being able to zoom in on a picture without having to go online and I miss being able to decide which part of a large picture I wanted to emphasize on when it came to the thumbnail of the recipe - the shopping list needs a lot of work. I end up with the same ingredient over 6 times because of different measuring units/abbreviations (e.g., tbsp, T, tbs, tablespoon; OR T, 1/4 cup, 100g) Last, like another reviewer mentioned, I wish that they would’ve considered loyal customers and offered a special price to upgrade for a limited time. Especially because most of us refer people all the time.
  • Favorite app

    By GrrrNicknames
    This is, by far, my favorite app. I use it every day to plan my meals, manage my grocery lists, cook, and more. With this last update they added the thing I’ve always felt was “missing” with using Siri to add to grocery list. It did take me some time to get used to, though, since you have to say it exactly like they recommend (“add______ to my grocery list in Paprika”). The only downside is that you can’t do this from the Apple Watch, but I can deal with that. For the app itself, I love how I can add my recipes or add anything from any website easily, and how I can scale ingredients, and cross off what I’ve added while cooking, and highlight the direction step I’m on - all little things that make it beautiful. I use my phone for groceries & mobile management, iPad for cooking, and Mac for larger jobs like adding lots of recipes or major meal plans. There was one loss with the update. It used to be that if you had copied a web address, when you open the app it would ask if you wanted to go to that page, which was very convenient. Now it doesn’t do that so it’s more clunky to paste and find the site. Overall I have recommended this app to so many people, and all of my family and friends have it now. No more stacks of cookbooks to store, losing recipes, or scrambling to come up with what I can make. Life is so much simpler and I love it.
  • Versions 2 and 3 don’t sync on MacBook, no support from Zendesk, lousy search function

    By Lacovi
    I’m very disappointed after paying for new version of this app. 1) when they introduced version 3 they said versions 2 and 3 would sync. NOT TRUE. I have both installed on my MacBook and version 2 not only does not sync with 3, but when I click on the sync button it asks me to sign in, when I sign in it tells me my credentials are not valid? I sent a request to the Zendesk and I never got a response. 2) search function on version 3 is lousy. I do a search by name and only 5 recipes of about 100 that I saved with the exact first word on the title come up. For me the IMPROVEMENTS DO NOT OUTWEIGH WHAT I LOST compared to version 2.
