In the new version is possible to synchronize and store my recipes using Dropbox? If so, how do I do it?
You can backup your recipes to Dropbox but synchronization is not automatic
Can you add a way to convert recipes frrom grams to ounces, teaspoons, tablespoons, cups etc.
have you got this site also in german ?
Hi, no sorry, the documentation is not available in German …
If one imports the ingredients of several recipes into a shopping list, the amount of similar items are not added up to each other. Neither does the App list the items in alphabetical order. If one wants to go shopping for the recipes of a few days the list is useless unless one manually adds up how much/many of one ingredient is needed in total.
Since we import recipes from various sources, especially from websites, and for various languages, it was too complicated for us to separate the quantities from the ingredients. We have decided we won’t implement that for the moment…. Maybe one day
I like the new design and the division of the directions paragraphs into number sections. But that also leads to some problems:
– it’s not possible to to add a headlines or a new line in a number section since every line break is transformed into a new section. I guess it would be better to detect double line breaks instead of single line breaks.
– editing of the text is not as comfortable as it was with continuous text (now a lot of copy/paste is needed).
Additionally I’m using a non-4:3 tablet (Nexus 7) and the gallery layout doesn’t look like it’s shown in the screenshots. The images a much flatter than before and only a (too) small part of the photos is shown now.
Hi , thanks for your comments. I will try to improve this new release very soon !
Thanks for your fast response! I checked v5.0.5 and besides the bug fixing the possibility to switch between two views is another great improvement in usability.
Unfortunately I wasn’t able to figure out how to insert several lines in one direction step as described in the update info; everytime I save, every line still gets its own number. Is there a special procedure I have to take care of?
Another thing that was helpful in the former version: when using the scale function the “target yield” was also shown the ingredients section (esp. when preparing bigger amounts I tend to forget what I put in – perhaps I’m getting old 😉 ).
Hi Dieter, thanks for your feedback. Currently it is not possible to remove the steps numbers… Maybe in a future release.
I’ll add back the target yield in the ingredients section in a next release
