App is pretty good but ads are not
Updated 3 Feb 2013 -- the new version with the improved recipe Bo's now prevents me from seeing any of my recipes through the app. If I want to be able to see them, I have to select them as a Favorite again. Obviously this also prevents me from having any access to my own personal recipes even though these were added to the Epicurious web site years ago. I'll still stand by my statement that the the concept of Epicurious is a great one but I do wish the would fix the app so I don't have to either print off my recipes when I want to make something or run back and forth between the office and the kitchen for each new step.. Also, the occasional pop up ads are annoying, particularly after I paid a fee. I've long been a fan of Epicurious and was thrilled when the iPad app came out. I even bought the upgraded version so I could access my recipe box. Unfortunately, the whole recipe box isn't available -- my own personal recipes can't be accessed on the iPad -- I'll have to go to my desktop to get to those. The real kicker, however is the recent introduction of ads that pop up after I have selected a recipe to view. I don't care if the ad is food-related or not, I paid for the upgrade and shouldn't have to deal with them.

What happened?
Heartbreaking. Lost my entire favorites--over 100 recipes--after the new update and will likely never find them all again. Seriously, why would you do that? I don't want to use this app now for fear that you will do this again and waste my time and energy. Very disappointed with y'all, Epicurious...

This useful app is now BROKEN
Like others, I have the "pay" version to be able to store recipes I liked or want to try in the "recipe box," a list you can add to, that's supposed to sync with any other devices and the website. Now my "recipe box" is vacant. I had several recipes. Was it me? Did I not do something correctly? No, because here I still have the *shopping lists* of the ingredients from those recipes, so something has changed. Ok, annoying, but the ingredient list *does* note which recipe it was for, so I'll just go back to the recipe, and add it to my "recipe box" again... Yet nothing ever sticks or shows up. Empty screen, as though I never used the feature. Maybe Epi is having serious licensing issues or something, and isn't allowed to access the recipes we've used for years from all the various sources. I don't know. Whatever's going on, figure it out, Epi. I have grown accustomed to the convenience of your service, and that's why it's so disappointing to write such a negative review.

What the ?
I used this app daily, while at the store just seeking some inspiration, now NO recipes show up? Really? What a waste this used to be a fab app now just junk. What a waste of my time. Don't waste yours.

Update = worse
I have the free version so no recipe box, but in trying to look at recipes today, i found that fewer than half will open! Next time you upgrade, please try *improving* the program rather than killing it.

Disappointing!
Epicrious used to be my "go-to" site for cooking. When I got an iPad I downloaded the App and connected it to my long list of favorites from the web site. With continued use, some titles and pictures of recipes disappeared from my favorite list, making it hard to find recipes. Now with a new iPad, I'm supposed to buy another app to access my favorites list on my new device?! I don't think so. I will be looking for a new recipe app! Very bad form!
