Great app! Not fussy at all!

I usually don’t write reviews but out of all the cookbook apps I’ve tried this one is really nice and easy to use. The browser
feature is really neat and makes adding recipes from website much more streamlined! I just wish there was a way to mass tag

I have no words

This app is simply amazing. I can’t thank the creator of this app enough. Best $5 investment hands down

I’ve been looking for an app like this for a long time. I could not ask for an easy, user friendly way to store my favorite
recipes. Being able to import recipes from the web was the icing on the cake, literally!!!!

Aesthetic & Clean App

Amazing cooking app and love the simple interface. Only thing I would love have added to this app is the ability to auto-convert
units or scale up something in the recipe like serving sizes. Minus this one feature love the uncluttered feel of the app

A work of beauty

This is a beautifully designed app, not just in the look but also the little details like how the app displays recipes on iPad.
Life changing! It takes you from planning to the fork! Amazing! Get it and buy premium ASAP!

Best recipe out there, hands down

One of the best apps out there, period. So thankful that this makes use of a lot of standard Apple UI components, so it’s
beautiful, and so easy and enjoyable to use. Syncs great with other Apple devices. Allows for easy export and backup.

Incredible app

So helpful for recipes discovered online and coordinating and sharing recipes with the family. I also love how easy this makes it
to record notes and customize recipes.

The most awesome recipe app

I’ve tried a few recipe apps and they never stick. Mela has become indispensable. So easy to grab NYT food section recipes and
anything interesting you find on the interwebs. Scanning works like a charm too. Don’t know what I’d do without Mela!

At First, I loved it, and then….

I loved this app, I looked through so many and tried several of the free versions. This one was great. Then I purchased it and it
no longer could find ANY recipes on websites. I mean none. I tried it side by side with other recipe keeper apps and those could
find the recipes but not this one.

Love and suggestion

Love the app but can you streamline the grocery list a bit more? Maybe organize by type of food and if there r multiple or the
same food combine them into one line

This app is amazing

I use Mela all the time to adjust recipes and get rid of all of the extra story associated with a recipe. It’s been a time saver
and I can share with my family so we all know what recipe to follow.

This app has totally changed how I meal prep every week. Recipes are easy to save and organize. Design is simple and intuitive.
I’ve recommended it to so many friends. Love love love!

Need easier search

Love the app - easy to import recipes. Great formatting and the Cook view is awesome.

BUT the only way I’ve found to search is to scroll to the top of the ALL list which can take a lot of strokes on my iPad with
nearly 1000 recipes. Please improve this!

Feature Request

Love the app but wish there was a way to add subcategories or some sort of hierarchy for organizing the recipes.

Only one feature is missing

Such an elegant recipe collector! It would make the app perfect if I could sort of filter all recipes by the cooking time needed.

This app is absolutely amazing. It curates all your recipes from website, detects ingredients and instructions, syncs with
calendar and reminders to make a grocery list and dinner schedule. It's perfect.

The recipe app you’ve been waiting for

I’ve tried countless recipe apps and hated them all. The recipe importer from webpages is worth its weight in gold alone.

Clean, Clear, and Versatile

This is a brilliant databasing system for our recipes!! It has completely changed how my partner and I meal prep and grocery shop
for the better. Plus with family sharing, all of my Mom’s recipes are here for safe keeping and sharing. Awesome stuff!

It’s ridiculous how good this app is.

Flawlessly executed recipe app. It’s absolutely gorgeous, and the text parser is incredibly accurate. Insta-buy.

Leveling up my life with Mela

The ability to create a library of recipes that my wife and I love has made meal planning SO much easier/more enjoyable. Add the
ability to quickly add groceries to a shared reminder list and I can confidently say I’ve reached the next tier of adulthood.

Thanks Mela, for making me a better adult

Mela does exactly what you want a recipe book to do. Well worth the money to be able to import and share recipes with my loved
ones with ease.

Easily the best recipe manager out there

I wish it defaulted to “cook” mode

The typeface is much more legible in cooking mode, and it’s much more useful to swipe between instructions and ingredients.

Paprika’s default typeface is more legible and larger.

Gorgeous and smart recipe app

Mela has personality in its design without getting in the way. It’s goal is to let you import, adjust, and follow recipes as
easily as possible. It succeeds at that handily.

This app has changed our kitchen

I cannot recommend this app enough. Shared library, easy import, fantastic design, scanning cookbooks. It has everything. Forget
5/5. It’s a 10/10!

Beautiful app for storing recipes

This app makes a beautiful and very practical. Designed with iOS first an

Feature requests: more nutritional information styling similar to ingredients. The ability to schedule to make a meal with x
amount of servings and be able to assign each serving (or multiple servings) to specific days.

Feature request: nutrition data calculation

Great app, but there’s not always nutrition data associated w recipes. Would be HUGE if recipes could auto-calculate rough
nutrition facts from free public online databases

Good vibes when using this app

You can definitely tell the dev put a lot of love into this app’s design. “Crouton” is a very similar app and comes in a
close 2nd to Mela, but despite how good Crouton is, Mela is just THAT much better. And after all, how many recipe apps do you
need or can even use…

One of the few perfect apps. It makes cooking and managing recipes so much easier and just even more fun. It’s a beautiful app
and one of the most useful applications on my phone.

Gorgeous app!!

This is such a well-made app that makes saving and tagging recipes from different websites a dream! And the interface is beautiful
to boot. If the developer ever adds a homescreen widget, I would be as happy as a clam (which I’ll be cooking for dinner tonight
thanks to this app)

Where have you been…

This is the recipe app I’ve been looking for! Including a best-in-class website recipe importer and awesome cook mode features.
Too many to list, just try it.

The best app for organizing digital recipes!!! You can even download your recipes & use that file to share your Mela collection

Too restricted

Can’t share from notes app to Mela where I’ve saved many recipes. Requires separate purchase of desktop app. No web interface
to view saved recipes on other platforms.

Good app, customer service seems nonexistent

I think the app is good. There are some features I might like to see with it, but not a deal breaker. Would probably give it 4 or
5 stars if they ever replied to emails. I sent one requesting features and another asking questions they have not replied. One in
February and one about 4 days ago.

Nice app but don’t scan recipes

OCR is absolutely horrible. Mixes up lines and word order constantly, such that I am essentially forced to manually input recipes
whenever I try to scan them from a cookbook. Very frustrating.

Crowd City - Keep it going. I love this game because when ever I'm bored I get on crowd city and I'm happy and I love how you only have a little time to beat
everyone because that makes it fun..

The Real Juggle - Good. This game is pretty good, but there's just so many ads.

Poke Genie - Really helpful. I really appreciate how it has truly brought the poke community together through raids, helping users figure out the stats and
levels of the pokemon
Keep up the good work.
