My Favorite Recipes

You're looking for an app for your very own recipes? This is the app for you! Instead of focusing on pre-installed recipes like most apps, My Favorite Recipes comes without a single one! The whole app has specifically been designed for that small set of your very own personal favorites.

So how do you get recipes into the app? Easy. You can either type them in on the device. The UI has been highly optimized to make it as comfortable as possible. Or if you own a desktop recipe program, the app supports various import formats (currently CookML, MealMaster, Rezkonv, MXP). Lots of users use My Favorite Recipes simply as their mobile companion and manage recipes on their desktop machine. For more information, check out our website to see what formats are currently supported.

As a third option, you can use the integrated web browser. If the app detects a recipe in one of the supported formats on the webpage, the import button lights up and with the touch of a button, the app stores the recipe on the device. Again, please check our website for more information what kind of websites work and which don't.

Once you got the recipes in, you should find pretty much everything you need: Mail recipes to friends, a shopping list, ingredients can be checked off while your cooking, categories, drinks, authors, ratings, ...

This is an app from an avid cook for avid cooks. If you have any questions or ideas what features to add, just drop me a email. I'd love to hear from you...


Note: Unfortunately does not support iClouds-Syncing yet. To transfer recipes, you can export them as CookML, store the file on iClouds and then import on the other device.
