  • Amazing App, Delicious Food

    by Violins27

    I'm a foodie but a terrible cook. Being able to see video of each step has made cooking something delicious possible for me.

  • Need a Restore All Purchases Button

    by LaDanaWendy

    Appetites is one of my favorite apps but I'm still waiting for them to include a Restore All Purchases button.

  • Really Helpful, and Easy to follow

    by Tbone2o08

    This site gives really easy instructions and alleviates the question mark above your head when you read a recipe and something just doesn't make sense to you. Also shows helps because you get to see how you food should look throughout the whole process. So far every recipe that I have tried has came out good (makes me think that I can work my way around a kitchen).

  • Ehhh

    by Lol ... :)

    It doesn't have a variety

  • Amazing

    by Reenzw

    I've had this app since Day 1. The videos are literally step by step, that once downloaded, you can watch it offline.... I cannot cook to save my life but with Appetites, I've planned a dinner for my friends. And the video quality is HD. My only complaint is that it would be so much better with more recipes. But it is a must-have.

    I learnt a lot from this cooking app. The recipes in this app are quite useful. You can try to make some dishes of your own by following the guidances from the software. The dishes presented in this app are easy to learn.

    by wuhaopu

  • Garbage

    by End User License Agreement

    Took one look at this after installation and it was deleted straight off. Data harvester.

  • The best! well it used to be

    by Deen1stApps

    This is such a well executed app. Five stars! I love it so much! As a beginner the starter pack is more than enough for me right now, even so I don't really see why people are complaining about 99 cents for a recipe.They put so much effort into this app, they should be able to get something back for it. EDIT: THERE IS A GIANT BUG IN THIS APP. FIX IT BEGORE YOU LOSE ANY MORE CUSTOMERS. I have had to delete and redownload this app 4 times now, that doesn't include all the recipes lost when doing so. I thought it was a storage issue but it isn't. This app just blanks out after a while and then you are left just staring at a wooden background screen and you can't do anything about it except redownload the whole app which is such a huge file, this is the only app I have ever had to so this for. And it is getting ridiculous, I have still left up two stars because when it works it really is the best and most beautiful app. Please fix it soon. I really loved this app, and that is why I haven't given up on it. I'll be waiting to give this app the five stars it deserves then.

  • Couldnt even get it to download

    by Luscious014

    I tried several times to download the app, it said i had to use wifi cuz it was so big. So i tried various wifis and it just kept saying it couldnt download.

  • Not as good as it states

    by Meoworeo

    It says they have tons of recipes but the fact is you have about 25 included for the 9.99 price. You have to pay extra for additional recipes. Very disappointed with the quantity of recipes included in the initial price. Not worth he cost.
