  • Helpful!!!

    by Real Navy

    Enjoying this very much. This makes my life a lot easier. Putting meals together for two house apes and one silver back gorilla is never easy. If I left it up to them, dinner would only shift between pizza, cheeseburgers, wings, and subs. Yall know what I mean!

  • Fun!

    by Peace out me

    Love the app. Especially the weekly idea. Great that it incorporates all things, food family travel and fashion. Keep up the good work. Love to see what you are up to. I too am a traveling working mom! One thing though I keep getting the black screen too. Can you guys fix these please!

  • Giada

    by Gsgkfsgjifsgbk

    I have met giada before PERSONALY and she is amazing and that's why her books are amazing!!!!

  • Love this app!

    by Arrrrggghhh&

    Love getting my Giada fix each week - just enough to enjoy without being overwhelmed with too much content, or stuff I'm not interested in. Love love love the recipe box! The perfect curation of the best recipes, easy to favorite and organize and always with me in the store or the kitchen. Too bad you don't have 6 stars . . . Thanks Giada xoxox

  • Love it, however

    by Freakers88

    I love the app, inspiring and insightful. Would be 5 stars if it didn't crash a couple times a month and force me to delete and restore to get it to work again on my iPad mini.

  • Love the content, hate the bugs.

    by Hinchmana

    I absolutely would recommend having this app but every time a new issue comes out with my subscription it freezes either while downloading or the app just goes black. The only solution I have is to delete the app and reinstall it. But I have to do that every week then download all the content again. It's frustrating but it is worth it because I love reading all the articles! So inspirational and fun.

  • Great recipes

    by KitchenDodger

    I love the recipes that are found in each issue. It is my bedtime reading that gets me thinking about meals for the upcoming week.

  • Love the app

    by Denise Pa!

    The app is great as I am a foodie. It's sad most app's struggle with the tech problems, for example always black screen etc.

  • LOVE this!

    by Gav7733

    Awesome recipes! Love the cook-mode... Makes it easy to cook along and it details all of the ingredients out step by step. Everything I've made from this is delish.

  • Giada's magazine

    by DC birder

    This is a quick read, full of good recipes.

  • I have been waiting for this!

    by HGAppUser

    I love a celebrity who is not afraid to share what she loves or how she lives with her fans. Giada has been an inspiration to me for 10 years (first, with her Italian cooking and, most recently, with her passion for a healthy lifestyle). I couldn't be happier that she's stuck around all this time. This digital weekly is like a little present in my iPad "stocking" once a week! It has a little bit of everything we all love about Giada and not too much to read before bed or while taking a break. My favorite section would be G's Hotlist. How brilliant is that?! Well, back to reading the latest issue!!

  • Great App

    by JMSCCD

    Really enjoying this app! Lots of interesting ideas & recipes.

  • Great little magazine

    by roxieprov31

    No ads, recipes and as always good pictures.

  • Just saying...

    by ~mmrb

    There are 4 issues a month at .99 cents each which would total $3.96 (plus tax if applicable) if you bought them individually or you can subscribe and get all 4 for $2.99. That saves you .97 cents, which is not a big deal overall. However, no matter how you purchase, this is a great value and Giada is awesome!

  • This app is INCREDIBLE !!!!!!

    by AJ_Sartor

    Seriously. It's incredible.

  • Great Gida goodies!

    by Bilemcd

    The articles are great. Although I wish there were more articles in each month. The format is easy. I agree with the other two reviewers about getting asked to pay twice. If I didn't enjoy Gida's receipts I'd probably think twice before paying for the subscription.

  • Just Right

    by TPritch

    Giada's digital weekly magazine is the perfect length to relax & read with a cup of tea. A half hour to yourself ends with a few great recipes to try or perhaps peanut butter to order. If you're a fan you'll love the weekly.

    Crap.

  • Disappointed

    by NP4Babies

    When it works, I enjoy it. However I never know when it will work. I keep getting a black screen when I want to read an issue. When they updated it, it worked but now I'm back to a black screen again. My other magazines work just fine so I know it's this app that's the problem.

  • Uh...

    by patch11001

    Let me get this straight, I can either pay 0.99 each month or I can save myself the hassle of clicking that button and subscribe for 2.99 a month...good thing she's a chef and not a mathematician...

  • Disappointed

    by hayley courier

    App is asking me to pay for issues that I have already paid for and are in my library

  • Great!

    by Aioko1

    I love the themes and obviously the recipes. Giada, she is my favorite Chef in the whole wide world! So down to earth and a great Mom. Thanks, keep the great job.

  • Wonderful app

    by AP Strickly

    Terrific recipes that are easy to navigate through due to the dazzling interface. A must have for Giada fans or anybody trying to find their way around a kitchen!

  • What fun!

    by SherryBird

    Great little articles I can read when I have a minute to spare. I like it!

  • Disappointed

    by rose_bud_087

    Very poorly done app. I had high hopes for this, but all have fallen short. Don't buy it. Save your bloody money. What a total disappointment. :(

  • Great app!

    Great app

  • Great app!

    by GusPanch

    Beautifully designed, easy to navigate, and the content is informative and fun to read.

  • Needs Help

    by hnonnac

    App doesn't seem to work a lot of the time- too many bugs.

  • Lost all my contacts

    by Monkey Mandee

    I downloaded the app and I lost all my iPhone contacts. Once I deleted the app they came back again.

  • Giada

    by Rubia_05

    Great content, easy to read and follow but it crashes a lot!

  • Update erased all issues

    by jahn

    To reiterate the previous comments, this is a nice publication. However, the recent update deleted all of my past purchases. "Restoring" purchases does nothing. Four stars for content; no stars for the application developer. Please help.

  • Can't access issues

    by Mamfranco

    Since the last update, i cannot access the issues I paid for. Please help!

  • Great weekly but...

    by natalie hansen

    Initially I would have given this 5 stars. The weekly's that I have read we're awesome! However, since the update, it erased all my issues and won't let me restore my purchases. Fix this please!

  • Love Gilda and this app

  • Good magazine but latest update did not work

    by Listener in ct

    I'm subscribed from Oct 2 till Nov 2 but cannot download issue from 10/03 or bypass the "subscribe" button. Another problem - the front cover picture is gone

  • Refreshing digital source

    by KYgirl

    So excited for the next issue. I love them all!! Like juicy little tidbits, to savor again and again!! Beautiful photography! So nice to see Giada, her family and friends as they go about their day. I really like that each story is brief! Who has time to read a long magazine! Refreshing, just like she is!! Love!!!

  • Big Fan

    by M6A1R9I

    So far I've enjoyed the magazine. I especially enjoy the way it's wide range of topics that greatly show what Giada really represents. My only request is that it be a little longer.

  • Fun!

    by Peace out me
