Not ready for prime time
This app will hopefully be great someday. If it were fully functioning, the ability to add recipes to the Recipe Box from anywhere on the web would be terrific. As would the shopping list function. But it doesn't work. When clipping recipes from web pages, their web clipper allows you to copy the recipe instructions into a "notes" field. But that notes field appears NOWHERE on the web nor in the app. Furthermore, these recipes often disappear completely from my Recipe Box. Sync works intermittently at best. It crashes when I try to select a recipe. The list of bugs goes on and on. I hope to write a stellar review of a future release. But for now, this is so full of bugs it's not functional.

$2 to sync recipes
Ow, what's that gouging sensation? Oh, it's the epicurious app asking for $2 to sync my recipes down -- once! No thank you. I'll view the web version for free, and have uninstalled the app as quickly as I installed it.

Frustrating!
Interesting recipes but what's with the ads along the bottom blocking text? I put up with ads on many apps but on this one I can't even find a way to X out of them. And believe I've looked and looked. This is true for recipe after recipe. You have to guess at the last few lines of the recipe instructions. I've happily used this app for quite a while but this is a new development and it's so frustrating I'm very tempted to delete, delete, delete.

Missing info
Content wise this is a great app, but the app itself has major issues. It used to work great but now many of the recipes in my favorites are missing the title or image and you can't tell what recipes they are.

Recipe box problems
I paid to sync my recipe box last year an now I'm being asked to pay again and I am missing a ton of recipes. Please fix this!

Needs updates!!!
This app used to work great. Now my recipe box is missing a bunch of titles and pictures. I can't tell what's in there and this was the feature I used most. The app never stops loading and never completely displays everything. Also parts of the recipe were randomly disappearing last time I used this. Really needs work, because otherwise it's a great resource and has some of the best recipes.
