Great content, very poor app
I tried *really* hard to like this app as I love the number and quality of the recipes, but the app is so bad that it outweighs all the benefits...to the point where using epicurious.com is a far better way to go. The user interface, performance and stability of this app are honestly atrocious for modern standards. It is the worst IOS app I've ever used, and it hasn't improved over the last few updates. I've been putting up with the flaws for over a year now, but the icing on the cake was when all of my favorites just disappeared. I wasn't about to pay even $1.99 towards such a rotten app to "sync" my favorites when the expected behavior would be that they're backed up to my computer via iTunes. Now I will spend many hours of my time finding them again, and when i do they'll be bookmarked in Safari instead of Favorited in this lame app. To the product team - the content is so good that I would gladly pay up to $40 for this app if you ever decided to make the needed improvements.

Junk - waste of time even of its free!
Search for three different recipes all returned the same results with over 22000 hits. You can tell me that vinegarette dressing is found in lentil soup.

Average
An app of this magnitude, backed by a major publishing house, should have better functionality. Basics like: - ability to set up categories for your recipe box - view your notes on recipes - combine like items in shopping list - edit items in shopping list - limit of 10 reviews listed With iPads as becoming more prolific, this app is important to your brand.

Missing favorites and broken interface...
What happened guys?! I have no idea how many favorites we lost as none were left after the update. Also the main tab and sidebar tabs continue to redraw at incorrect sizes or are missing out of the window...

The sync does not work with member uploaded recipes. Nowhere is this mentioned until you try and find out why at the website help. Do not waste your money on this garbage!
