A lot of time has been spent on making the interface feel as intuitive as possible. Navigation is easy, it's possible to highlight items with taps to track what steps have been taken or tap to cross-out ingredients that have been added as well as adjust the recipe easily without overwriting the original and make notes of changes and preferences.

Paprika has a simple to use meal planner that allows adding recipes along with notes to a calendar. This information can later be used to automatically create a grocery list. Meal plans last forever. Want to know what you served for Christmas 3 years ago? It's there. See More
Paprika has been a great addition to planning meals and shopping for the week or month! See More
Depending on meal plans, Paprika can create a grocery list with all required ingredients. In the grocery list it's possible to view ingredients grouped based on recipes or all together. It can even keep a list of items already available and skip those when creating a grocery list. See More
Expensive. New releases require you to buy the app all over again!! See More
It seems that the developers are no longer supporting this app. Hasn't been updated since 2015, and no new support for websites once the site is updated or changed. See More
There has been no response from the support team for several months. Can no longer access the 'help' section, either.
While storing recipes here, you'll need a way to safely export and backup your collection. Pepperplate says they are "working" on this function for a future update, but they have been saying this for a few years now without implementing any updates. You may want to consider moving over to Paprika instead. See More
To save a recipe from the web into Pepperplate requires copying the URL, navigating to Pepperplate.com (that has no mobile version), either logging in or clicking view recipes, then navigating to import recipes and pasting the URL in the form field. There's no way to "share" a URL to Pepperplate. See More
Recipes can be organized into menus and categories. Menus allow grouping recipes and operating with them together. For example, a whole menu can be added to a shopping list or added to the planner without having to add each recipe separately. Categories are essentially tags. They can be added to recipes and used to search through them in recipe list. See More
We run a closed Facebook beginners pressure cooker cooking group of 400,000. We have almost 80% active members. Recipes are a huge part of it. Having a base with 1 million interactions a month, trying to search for recipes is almost impossible. We use CopyMeThat community feature as a Social Media Recipe Box Manager. We set up a family recipe box for the group . It is private to the other CopyMeThat communities, only accessible via the free CopyMeThat app, for our members only. Before we spent hours sharing tested recipes with beginners. There are so many bad recipes in pinterest and google, it is not a place for beginners. The Social Media Community Recipe Box feature has made our job so much easier. Instead of our handfuls of the admin team wearing themselves out trying to share recipes, we now have thousands of recipes in one Community Recipe Box. There are thousands of members that have access to search for themselves and share with others. We can use the rating feature to identify which one's have been made and shared successfully by one of the group. We make notes with what changes we made without changing the original recipe. The members can upload their pictures. Our admin team now has more time to develop and share recipes. We help members write their own recipes and share them in the Recipe Box. We have used it to create tutorials with multiple step pictures. There is no limit on the recipe box, members can search on ingredients and find recipes with those ingredients. Tags can be used to streamline the search as in chicken pasta soup. The meal planner has been so helpful when holiday planning. The ability to take 3 or 4 course meal plan and build a shopping list is amazing. If there are eggs in three recipes, it gives you the total, not 3 different items. If you change your mind it adjusts the list. There is a recipe scaler that automatically adjusts the recipe ingredients to reflect your adjustment. See More

Intelligent item system allows you to edit items on your shopping list, combines items from multiple recipes, and organizes items by store location. Forget an item? Hit the “Add Item” button, type in oranges, item is immediately added to your list under the “Produce” section. See More
Lots of other peoples recipes, not a private recipe manager!! See More
Items to the shopping list can be added from the recipe view by clicking on the ingredients or manually from the shopping list itself. Items are organized in categories such as produce or beverages and there's a reminder at the bottom for what meals are the ingredients for. Bought items can be ticked off by tapping on them or deleted from the list with a long-tap. See More
CookBook is the only recipe manager with a free OCR tool and it works amazingly!! You have to do a tiny bit of editing afterwards but saves soo much time as you don't have to type in the entire recipe. It also has so many features like meal planning, shopping lists, cooking mode and searching with leftovers in your fridge. I have tried a lot of these apps and this one is by far at the top for me!
