I always turn to this app when I need recipe ideas. I love that I can save my favorites too so I don't have to look them up again.
Issues: 1) Why can't I tap the picture on the home screen slide show? It looks really cool but sometimes I see something that looks really yummy & I want to know what it is & how to make it. So if tapping the pic took me to the recipe, that would be very, very nice. 2) Adding my own recipe from the app is just completely non-functional. I always end up having to do it from Safari, then I have to go back into the app to add a picture. Other than that, it's a wonderful app & I've switched away from my previous online recipe storage site because their app was useless for what I needed. Quick, easy access to all my organized recipes. The ability to search for new recipes, add them to my organized collection, read reviews & tips, & post reviews & tips. And the ability to easily add my own recipes with photo(s) & tips. Your app is very close to meeting my needs. I look forward to future updates. Thank You!
I've found great recipes with this app and it's super easy to use. I love it
Best app for recipes!
At first it worked great. Now it keeps freezing on me. And the "home" button doesn't work. If I'm on a recipe and I click home it doesn't take me back to the home page, it doesn't take me anywhere. Deleting because it no longer works!
Great search options and I can store my own recipes so everything is kept in one place.
Love the leftovers recipes!!!
I didn't really start using BigOven until the mobile app came out. I love being able to search and schedule recipes! I'm a pro user and have started taking pics of my favorite cookbook recipes so BigOven can transcribe them for me - how great is that? Whenever I contact their service dept, I get prompt USEFUL responses.
Pretty good recipe's, not a waste of app space
The pictures are vibrant and makes you want to reach out to that food as though it is calling your name. It is a great app! Keep up the good work!
Completely in love!
I enjoy the different search functions (especially for leftovers which lets u enter three ingredients at once). I don't know about saving functions because I normally just email recipes to myself. Easy to use!! Lots of recipes (unlike other aps which are limited unless u pay). Only downside: many recipes are not rated.
I love this. I use it almost daily.
I love this app. The recipes are updated constantly and there are selections for everyone. Recipes span across cultures and diets. I think this app is the most diverse I've ever downloaded for recipes. And it's easy to navigate.
Great comprehensive tool. I use it everyday! Great place to store all your recipes. The Add a Recipe feature is effortless, just take a photo of the recipe, upload and on average it's ready in about an hour depending on the time of day you upload it!
I used to only use my Better Homes cookbook but now I alternate between this app and that book. I love the family recipes and there are a lot of helpful hints in the comments sections. Well organized, easy to use, and even creates a grocery list for what you want to make!
Love this site - love this app!
Love making new recipes!!
fall in love with this app right away. LOVE the selection of new recipes. all the photo display looks yummy.THANKS!!
For a bachelor this is awesome
I really wanted to find a place to store all the recipes I find on Pinterest. Importing works pretty good, although some sites can be a pain. The things I think would make this much better would be - customizable categories. I hate that cookies and bars are lumped together in one sub-category. I literally have hundreds of recipes for cookies and bars. But in the bread section, there is a sub-category for pumpkin breads?? How many pumpkin bread recipes can a person have compared to cookies? Another thing I dislike is that when searching on the ipad, I can only search by the main category, so I have to scroll through hundreds of main courses OR the search feature will give me everyone else's recipes first and the only way I can tell which ones are mine is that most of mine are private so I have to look for the little lock icon. So weird that I can't just search my own recipes. Another problem I have is that when I switch apps, to look up what an alternative ingredient would be, for instance, when I go back to the Big Oven App, it totally reloads and I have to go hunting for my recipe again. Again, back to; finding my own recipes is very frustrating. If they don't fix these issues, I will not be renewing my subscription. Which is a bummer because I put a lot of time into this.
I'm surprised there aren't more reviews for this. This app is AWESOME. The grocery list is great, unlike the food network app that keeps crashing on me. Hope this app keeps getting the love!!
Still love this app because there are multiple recipes for each dish, unlike most cookbooks. I use this app often. Kathy, AZ
I love the simplicity of this app., very user friendly! I would recommend this to anyone. Either novices or advanced "cookers" ;).
I go to the app frequently. Like any recipe sharing site you have to read and decide if it is for you. My favorite part is that once you find a keeper you can look at all the recipes posted by that user.
Great recipes found
Great app just fix the search key word wired ness and it's perfect.
I love being able to find something to cook on the way to the store or before I make it home. A cookbook that is with me where ever I go.
Love this app - easy to use, fabulous recipes with mouthwatering pics. I use it often.
Great for ideas. It's easy to narrow down the search options or to browse through thousands of recipes
I love the new look, the big photos really help me find cool recipes!
I continue to enjoy Big oven as I find fun new recipes every time I look! To be able to go from planning to the store to the table is what our family needs and Big oven delivers
One of my favorite apps and seeing tons of holiday recipes I want to make!!
Love how BigOven lets me take my recipes wherever I go. I plan what’s for dinner while waiting at ballet class, and it makes a grocery list for me. Not sure how I’d survive without this app!
However, I hate being beaten over the head with Facebook. My five stars drops to three.
Always full of great new cooking/baking ideas. The fam loves it too.
Our house uses the same account. Since we uploaded our frequent meals into our recipes we can now fly thru the grocery store since we figured out the grocery list feature.
this is one of my favorite apps. I use it all the time. If i could give it 6 stars i would.
Big oven rocks
I love the updated version and appreciate the enhancements you've made to the app. The Menu Planner and Grocery List feature allows the whole family to feed grocery items they need through one pipeline. I've found some great suggested recipes too!
I have used your app so many times! I love the gray recipes and ideas.
Love this app...one of the best of many that I have. Sometimes you have to adjust some recipes to your liking. 0-to -10 I'll give it a 8.5
Love this app! It is my "go-to" when wondering "what's for dinner." I continuously find amazing dishes and I'm never disappointed!! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!!
Love this app!
I love this app. I use it all across my devices!
One of my favorite apps made even better with the newest update! I love the easy to use redesign and add to grocery list feature. Must have for any kitchen.
The newest version freezes every time I try to do anything. Very annoying.
