MealBoard - Meal Planner Positive Reviews
Absolutely wonderfulI love love love this app. I'm not an app person at all. I use only two apps on a daily basis and this is one of them. It made my life so much easier and so much more organized. All modules are great but the best is that I can park my car on the way home in front of a grocery store and have a shopping list within 5 minutes for everything that I need for the whole week of meals. I also use it for non-recipe items like milk, bread, butter, etc. I don't buy more than needed thus I don't waste food, i.e. money, but have everything for the recipes. You will be able to get more recipes than you will ever need with two click per new recipe. What a time saver! My favorite site is Weber, because we like grilled food and his recipes are exceptional, but you will also be able to import recipes from website not listed as supported.
Someone complained about lost recipes. It has never happened to me, but even if, you should know that our recipes are backed up on weekly basis. All you have to do is to contact Ray, the app developer, and he will help you with that. He has been very responsive with any questions I've had in the past and his support is great. I have been using this app for at least 2 years now and thought I should post a review to say how much I appreciate it. It would be very hard now to live without it!.Version: 3.5
Love this app!!!I’ve been using MealBoard daily for several years. This is my favorite app on my phone. While it comes with recipes, I entered all my own recipes and it was worth the time spent. I add recipes I want to make for the week, sync with my grocery list, and use the grocery list while shopping, checking off items I put in my cart. Sometimes, I stop at a grocery store without a shopping list prepared and add meals while there onto the meal calendar and sync with my grocery list and I’m all organized. No more forgetting what is in a recipe or forgetting to buy certain items. I can also email the shopping list to another family member to shop for me. If I want to text a shopping list, I just copy it from the email into a text. Each day, I can look at the calendar and see what I had planned to make, and then view the recipe for ingredients and directions. No need to pull out the cook book. This is also handy when I’m cooking on vacation or at someone else’s home. I can also easily edit the recipe to add important tips I discover as I’m preparing it. If I want to share recipes with friends, I can email them right from the app. If I want to print a recipe so my child can make it without looking at my phone, I can do that right from the app as well. I absolutely love this app!.Version: 3.7.3
Best recipe and shopping app everI have loved using this app ever since my cousin told me about it a few years ago. Our family of four each have it on our phones, linked, so no matter who is shopping, alone or multiple people at once, we can sync as we shop and get everything on our list correctly. The recipe import function was great and has gotten better with some recent updates such as the option to import ingredients as a text list. The “description “ field is a little hit or miss in terms of what is brought over from web pages. The one thing I always add manually to the description is a note of how many servings are in the original recipe, so that I can refer to that if there’s some part of the directions that makes reference to a specific quantity, especially when ingredients are meant to be divided (such as “add 1/3 cup of the flour”). I also routinely edit directions to add alternative instructions for Instant Pot and for Thermomix, two favorite appliances in our kitchen which take a little experience to know how to convert instructions. MealBoard makes it so easy for the whole family to shop and cook as a team! My only wish is that it be developed for other platforms so all my friends and cousins can use it..Version: 4.0.6
Love It!I absolutely love this app. It is so very customizable and I’ve been importing / entering recipes for two days straight now. About 20 years ago I tried a meal planning software called MasterCook. It was great for its time, but it was so unwieldy that I soon gave up. Because of that poor experience I have avoided this type of app until now. I use it on my iPad, which means I have a beautifully laid out recipe card to follow. I love that it generates a customizable shopping list that I can send directly to my printer. I’m sure that if I were more organized I would find the pantry portion something I couldn’t live without.... but I’m not there yet. Plus, I’m 67 and if I want something from the store I simply send my husband. For some reason he enjoys getting out of the house! The other thing I just love is that for recipes that I key in myself the app lets me browse and find whatever picture I want to use. And I found some really, really nice pictures. Makes me look like a star! And, last but not least, to be able to back everything up to the cloud so I don’t lose everything the next time I drop my iPad in the pool..... perfect. So, thank you. I almost never ever pay fir an app... but this one is worth every penny..Version: 3.6.9
Game changerOh my gosh I love this app so much. After really struggling for ages with the never ending task of meal planning and grocery shopping I finally went looking for an app and this one really really fit the bill. Key for me is that it integrates well with the recipe sites we use most (allrecipes, taste of home) so there isn’t a whole bunch of manual editing and importing. I do manually import a couple family recipes per month, but it’s not a huge task, just have to do it once and there ya go.
I’ve been setting up a week long menu at the beginning of each month and then saving it as a template. Then it’s easy to just load it and make edits to individual days. Very easy to drag and drop meals around. And I like that I can add prices and stores to each items to see what the grocery total is looking like as I go.
I haven’t made much use yet of the pantry tools to track what we have at home, but once I have a meal plan loaded and it populates a grocery list, it’s super easy to go through the cupboards and delete out anything we have on hand. Maybe someday I’ll figure out the tracking systems but eh - probably not. Pretty darn happy with all the attributes I’m currently using - they’re saving me a ton of time and misery..Version: 3.8.2
Great app!Love Love LOVE!!!!!! This app! It is revolutionizing my meal planning! I especially love that I can import my favorite healthy recipes in off my favorite websites. Saves me so much time. Of course I also like that I can add my own or old family recipes. Populates my a grocery list, that's me add the recipes to my weekly meal plan, then it remove the groceries items from the pantry when I make a recipe. Just can't get over how much I seriously Love this app!
1. It would help if we could share recipes on Pinterest to brag to our friends about what a great app this is. It's also free advertising for this app.
2. Additionally, when you go to move items from your shopping list to the pantry you have to click on a trashcan icon. This confused me for a while and I thought that the app did not move shopping list items to the pantry. I stopped using the app for a long time until I discovered the move to pantry option I was searching for was in the trashcan... It would be less confusing if you change the trash can icon or make two separate icons for deletion (trash can) and for groceries being moved to the pantry (maybe a door). Just a suggestion :) Thank you for creating this awesome app!.Version: 3.6.4
No more food waste!The cost of this app is easily made back by how much money I’ve saved not having to throw food away! Not only does it let you figure out exactly how much you need for your weekly recipes before going shopping- you can also add & sort by expiration dates to the pantry. I feel like this feature is so critical, at the start of the week I can sort by expiration date and choose recipes to make sure I use everything before it goes bad. As a single student on a tight budget this is a must have! I would love to see some improvement to the scheduling portion of the app. 1. Bulk add from pantry to a meal Ex- If I’m going to have a variety of veggies with a dip for lunch, this really doesn’t justify making a recipe but it gets tedious to add each item individually. 2. Add a take out meal to the calendar. I’d like to be able to have a write-in option for a meal rather than being required to put in a recipe or pantry item. Ex- I know I’m getting take-out or going to an event with dinner I’d love to be able to write that in on the calendar to visually see my meals for the week.
Would also love to see integration with grocery store apps in the future to help clip coupons!.Version: 4.1.2
Remarkably feature-rich recipe and meal plannerI cannot sing the praises of MealBoard to manage recipes, menus, and grocery lists enough. It’s refreshing to buy an app outright and not have to pay a monthly fee or tolerate ads. Ray has made an incredibly robust and user-friendly app that allows me to easily import and write recipes; maintain a grocery and pantry inventory; create menus; and generate shopping lists from the menu plus current inventory levels. The interface looks clean and is simple to use.
Additionally, I recently had an issue I created by installing the app on my iPad (formerly only on my iPhone) and failing to sign in before I entered a LOT of recipes and new inventory items. As such I wasn’t able to maintain this work and also assign it to my actual account once I realized what I had done. Ray had this resolved for me in a day and I didn’t lose any work. In addition to the work he’s already done to build this fantastic app, his commitment to maintaining and improving it for his customers is what we should hope to experience from all sellers/companies but in most instances that just isn’t the case. I highly and whole-heartedly recommend this app. Happy cooking!.Version: 3.9.5
Amazing!The best thing about this app is the ability to smoothly, seamlessly import recipes. I have been frustrated by Pepper Plate which had limited success at importing recipes. Mealboard seems to be able to correctly pull in any recipe accurately from pretty much anywhere. If I find a recipe on the web that I want to save, I simply copy the link. When I open Mealboard and tap on “import Recipe” it automatically grabs the link from my clipboard and pulls in that recipe like magic. The only exception I have found is NYT recipes. I suspect the NYT blocks it on their end because they want you to use their app.
The organization and search are very good. I can customize categories and edit recipes as needed. The only improvement I would hope for is a minor one - the ability to re-order the ingredients list on an imported recipe.
I orginally downloaded it to do meal planning to help shake up our same old routine and make sure i was using up some ingredients that were otherwise going to waste. It is great for that but I love it for the import feature.
Overall, I would highly recommend this app to anyone looking for a way to keep track of recipes and plan meals..Version: 3.9.4
Must have app if you like to be organized.I’ve been using this app for at least 5 years now. So many useful features like being able to import recipes from many food sites. The best thing for us is planning the entire week of meals. It compiles all of the ingredients onto a shopping list so you don’t have to. If you’re dieting or trying to eat healthy, half of the battle is food prep and organization. The shopping list categorized the items into the grocery store sections so you’re not zigzagging around when shopping. It has so many other features I don’t use like store preference or item pricing for budgeting. I would highly recommend this app. In fact, you’re wasting your time time if you don’t at least keep your normal grocery list on it. You always have your phone, so you always have your list. You should keep all your recipes here. Then when you’re at the store and have an epiphany to make something that night you hadn’t planned, there’s all the ingredients on your phone. Get it if you want to make your cooking life simpler..Version: 4.0.3
Seems Almost perfectI just started using the app and I have high hopes for it being the meal planning / kitchen organizing app I always wanted to have. But there is one big reason why I’m not using it very much: importing/inputting recipes to MealBoard is a huge put off when compared to my current grocery/recipe app: AnyList. AnyList is near perfect at importing recipes and super easy because it ads a share-menu command to Safari allowing 1 -tap entry of on-line recipes. No need to copy and paste URLs. It also does an amazing job of parsing recipe data that is pasted into the app. So it’s super easy to copy an emailed recipe and paste it in. I can also use the Mac version of AnyList to more quickly type in recipes.
But AnyList does a horrible job of creating a grocery list from more than one recipe. It also does not have the ability to enter and keep track of items in the pantry. And right now their devs are adding stuff I really don’t need or want (Alexa integration) instead of improving the functionality of it. That is whyI really want to use this app as my only Grocery/Recipe app. But until getting the recipes into this one is easier I’m still using AnyList everyday and putting MealBoard on the back burner..Version: 3.6.2
Great meal planning appI’ve been using this app for almost a year now. Learning its capabilities and how to use the app was a little difficult at first but now that I’ve learned what it can do and with the improvements implemented its really a great app. I recently used the shopping list for the first time and it made shopping for my ingredients so much easier because it tells you how much you need of each item so that you can buy the right amount.
The absolute best part of the app is the ability to import recipes. At first the import feature didn’t seem to work so well or maybe is was the website from which I was trying to import but I just imported about 10 recipes this week and all imported fairly well. You have the ability to make adjustments or corrections to the imported recipe if needed. It will include a link to the original recipe so that you can easily go there if you want to see the original recipe website.
I’m working on my Thanksgiving meal plan and recipes now. It’s definitely worth the price..Version: 3.7.1
Works great for meAfter looking at several other meal planning apps, I found this one. You do need to load a bunch of recipes when you get started but they have a search feature that gives you access to dozens of recipe sites so you can quickly upload new recipes to the app. I also created my own "recipes" so I can put non recipe type meals on the menu (e.g.: "turkey sandwich" for lunches or "stuffed baked potatoes" for dinners). I email the menu to myself and then print out the menu from my email to post on the fridge. I love the shopping list. I don't have the patience to manage my pantry, but I will just check off all the shopping list items I know I have at home before I go shopping. I also share the menu to my ICal which allows me to see what's for dinner when I'm at work. It would be great if it had a sign in, so that my phone app and my iPad app would be able to sync. Overall, I find this app simple to use and customize and has saved me time and money by reducing over-buying of food..Version: 3.5
Best InvestmentWhat a fantastic app! I have been using it for about 1 1/2 years now and I don’t know how I lived without it! So worth the nominal app fee. Over the first 6-8 months, I slowly added recipes as I made them but I made it last winter’s project to get them all added...1900+ in total. This app saves time - no lost time trying to decide what is for dinner tonight and quick assembly of your shopping list.
I love being able to access from anywhere: my phone on the go, my iPad in the house, my laptop for recipe entry. My family can even check what is for dinner and add meals they have been craving.
There are very few issues, if any, but on the rare occasion an external website changes and recipes can no longer be imported properly, support is quick to respond to the report and resolve. The only thing I would like to see in the app is the ability to save a favorite meal (main and side combo). There is a template to save a weeks worth of meals but I’d like to be able to drill down a bit further..Version: 3.7.3
Even more than I was looking for!I’ve been using this app for a little over a week, and have been busily entering recipes, doing meal planning, and using the shopping list. Haven't yet approached the pantry inventory, but may with my pantry staples. Love that I can create templates of meal plans for future use, and love that it puts my recipe ingredients on my shopping list. Yes, its work to set up. But once a recipe is entered, I can tap to add it to my calendar, and tap to create a shopping list, and tap at the store to mark the item in my grocery cart (and tap again to add to the pantry if I decide to go that far!). Over time, this app is going to save me time - just with the grocery list alone, not to mention having a plan for meals. Downloading recipes so far has been simple, with minor edits required, and love that all of it is synched between my ipad where I do the entry, and my phone where I do my shopping - not to mention having recipes with me for spur of the moment plans!.Version: 3.6.9
So far, no complaintsI recently switched from Menu Planner to MealBoard because the developer never seemed to get the barcode scanner to work. I'm getting used to the functionality of this app and it's comparable, if not better. Importing recipes is definitely easier and has more compatible sites. I use Pinterest a lot, so I just copy the URL from the recipe's site and copy it here and auto import fast and easy. Even using the "tool" function to import recipes is efficient (although obviously not better). I look forward to setting up the pantry and freezer in the app to start tracking inventory!
***update*** I would like the developers to consider including an option to mark a pantry item (i.e. corndogs) as a recipe/side dish that can be added to the menu **and reduce inventory** instead of having to create a new recipe to update the pantry or manually updating the pantry for that item....I haven't been able to "quick add" a pantry item to the menu planner..Version: 3.5
Import feature worth the $This app was exactly what I was looking for. I love it so much! Whenever I see a recipe on Facebook or ANYWHERE that I want to try, I just copy the link and quickly import it into the app. I love that I can organize the recipes into categories of my choice. I have a special potluck category so anytime I am going to a party, I know exactly what I can make.
It is super easy to grocery shop with this app, too. You can organize the grocery aisles to match your store. It doesn’t take a lot of battery life at the store to have the checklist up. When you meal plan, you can import the shopping list to the exact days you need to shop for. I have even recently enjoyed printing the shopping list. If your phone and your printer are both on wi-fi, you can quickly print the list off.
This app is everything that I was looking for, and more. It was worth paying for, and that is a rare thing in an app..Version: 3.7.4
Fantastic App!And I don't do reviews! This is a first—but this app is really amazing. I selected it following research a couple of years ago for my wife thinking it would be "kinda nice." My wife is super organized, loves her recipes, really cares about her meal planning and has a demanding full time career as a an Psychiatric APRN. I do most of the actual grocery shopping. Wow—she really got serious about using Mealboard and it has amazed me how useful it is. Really exceeded my expectations.
She has learned more and more and has a great data base now. We sync with my our iPhones and iPads. I can not imagine going shopping without using this app now. All our married kids now use it. It was really great for them to be able to log in on "moms" account - do a sync- and immediately get all of her data as a beginning base and then they all continued to modify their own apps on their own after that. Now they all swap and share recipes.
When I help out with cooking (not one of my strong points) I'd be lost without Mealboard.
So we always cook and shop with our iphone or iPad as the main control center.
It takes a little learning curve but the effort you put in returns much more benefits. She can plan out cabin trip menus and gathering menus and just everyday menus and shopping lists really fast. I'm very impressed. It's been a blessing for us.
I highly recommend it!! Well worth it!! Keep up the great job..Version: 3.6.6
Helps us (indirectly) to lose weight.We use MealBoard on one iPhone and two iPads. Having so many options for sharing allows the two of as to coordinate (as a couple) and see the meal plan as it fits into our schedules.
I am a big fan of the app, I love the pantry function and the ease of creating a grocery list. Being able to edit the categories and the aisles to the ones that I prefer is a big plus for me. I love how they’ve kept it simple and somewhat "text" oriented rather than "graphics" oriented. I don't need for it to be fancy, I just need for it to work! And it does!
I had gone away from the routine of meal planning for quite a while and am returning to having it in my weekly approach. What I have found, by using MealBoard over the years, is that it helps me to more successfully work my WeightWatchers program. It was fun to fire-up MealBoard once again in tandem with my return to WeightWatchers..Version: 3.6.7
Love this!I love this app! I have it on my phone, my iPad, and my husband’s phone. He loves that he can add things to the grocery list and it will sync automatically, and that he always knows what’s for dinner. I love that it keeps all my recipes and I can read them on the iPad while cooking. I also love that it’s easy to remember all the options you have for dinners when making the meal plan for the week. I even include things like “frozen pizza” and “not here for dinner” as recipes, so that we can really see every option for busy nights. I’ve emailed with the app’s developer, and he’s really open to adding in new features and making it better. He told me he’s currently working on giving the website all the features the app has, which I think will be great too! Overall, this app saves me a couple hours each week, and streamlines everything so I never forget anything at the store. Awesome!!.Version: 3.6.9
*Updated* Needs work for the same issues**Updated**
-There are still a lot of tweaks that need to be made in the app. I’ve added my email to the account but it is always saying that I don’t have one set up for it. I do, and it shows that I do. The shopping list and the quantity tab needs to be worked on still. I’ll select an item, put in an amount but it will almost always disappear or change when I click back into my master shopping list and this is so annoying especially when I’m actually getting my groceries. The syncing feature isn’t that smooth between devices, I find that I have to push sync on both apps a lot and close down the app for it to update properly. Debating on rating this a 3 or 4 star. I really like the app but it has had the same problems for forever now. So I’m rating it a 3.
I've been looking for a meal planning app for a while and was recommended by a friend to try this app out. It's such a great tool! I love that it's easy to use..Version: 3.8.7
Seems to cover it all!Hello! Ive had the app for about a month and so far I love it! It seems to be very thorough and well written. I trusted many of the outstanding reviews on my decision to purchase this app. I do like to hear that there is no monthly fee and the developer stays well connected for suggestions, feedback, follow-up. Sounds like Ray knows customer service, which is often hard to find these days! I have many recipes, but enjoy being able to import MANY others. I still need to learn how/why to write “templates”, but I figure that will come with time as I proceed to explore the app. Thanks to all the great reviews (good and maybe not so good) bc again, I feel this is REAL, LIVE input from REAL people! I’m hoping Ray isn’t going anywhere and hope if we lose him somehow, we will still be able to continue using the app as we purchased, with all the fantastic features! Cheers to Ray!!.Version: 4.1.2
Robust!I just downloaded this app and have started adding my favorite recipes. First impressions, the app has all the features I am looking for in a meal planner. Calendar, shopping list, recipe box, in addition to pantry tracker and even the ability to customize the stores you shop at and which stores you buy certain ingredients. Importing recipes is easy but does require going in for some quick edits most times. The only thing that I see as being a potential annoyance is that when the same ingredient is entered a little differently now different recipes, it adds both versions to the master list. If they're organized by the same category, it shouldn't be terribly annoying, but if you don't like redundancy, it will probably bug the crap out of you. You can definitely spend hours fine tuning this app to fit your needs which makes it a powerful tool..Version: 4.0.4
Love!I dont use all the features, but I would be lost without this app! Importing a recipe from the web takes seconds and includes a link back to original source so you can refer back to special notes or reviews that might have been posted with original recipe. I have actually created a “sewing projects” category and saved links back to projects I want to find again! (In this case the auto import does not work since there is technically no “recipe” but by using the tool option I save a picture and the title , and sometimes the materials needed)
As others have mentioned, the ability to create a shopping list in minutes from nearly anywhere is also a life saver, and if you keep up on your “pantry inventory” (I Don’t) you wouldn’t even end up with duplicate jars of that spice you almost never use, but cant recall if you actually have it anymore lol.Version: 3.7.3
Imports any recipeThis app has lots of cool features that I keep meaning to try but I find it invaluable for the things I use it for all the time. It has become the only place I store all of my recipes. I love being able to scale recipes. Favorites that I wouldn’t bother to make just for me are much easier when the app scales the ingredients for me.
My all-time favorite feature though it recipe import. When I find a recipe in a blog post that I want to try I just copy the url and open MealBoard. When I click on Import Recipe it pastes the url and loads the site. I add categories and occasionally categorize an ingredient and it is done. It is so simple I import recipes I haven’t tried yet because it is easier than using the original site while fighting my way through a bunch of ads, and I can scale it to meet my needs.
This app meets my needs very well..Version: 3.7.3
Have been using for yearsI love this app. I plan out my meals for the week, then sync to the shopping list. I then check off everything I already have before going to the grocery store and shop from the list in the app. Works great. It takes a while to build up the recipe library and you do have to reassign some grocery categories, but it’s totally worth it. Pros: Easily stores recipes from webpages Converts ingredients into shopping list Create your own categories Create weekly meal plans to reuse Wish it did better: There is a least used category, which I like for reminding myself of recipes I want to use, but haven’t. I wish you could see a last next and upcoming use date on the recipe. If there was an app that did meal planning this well AND did calorie counting, I would love it. That may be a lot to ask though.Version: 4.0.4
Best App I Have Ever PurchasedI have been using this app for maybe 10 years now and it is a lifesaver. 🙏🏻 I love that I can paste in a link to have everything sorted out into a list and directions that I can check off along the way. I just noticed scanning is now also an option 👏🏼.
My shopping list comes together in seconds after adding meals for the week. I have one meal that is “weekly staples” so I check to be sure if we have eggs, butter, etc…. On day I will use the pantry, but need to have kids out of the house to be sure things stay accurate.
I now have nearly 500 recipes and do have a little feature request/idea. I would love and would pay to be able to export my recipes into a little cookbook one day. 📕 Would be so cool to hand down to my kids and use as gifts..Version: 4.1.2
My Favorite AppThis app does it all!! I was searching for an app I could use to plan my meals, and came across MealBoard. It has surpassed my expectations. I read through each review since I was skeptical to spend money on something blindly. All of the reviewers left such positive reviews I was confident I would like it. Well, needless to say I LOVE IT!!! Here are all of the reasons you too should buy this app.
1) Easily plan your daily: meals, breakfast, lunch and dinner.
2) Recipe Box to store all of your favorite recipes. You can easily look up any recipe online via the app, or link directly to your favorite recipe apps!! This is a HUGE plus! You can also type up your favorite family recipes and add them to the app.
3) Track the items in your pantry. This will save you guessing what you have at home when you forget to add an item to your grocery list.
4) Grocery shopping list. Easily add ingredients from your recipe to a list via the app.
5) Sync your devices so no matter which one you have you will see the same thing.
All of that being said, spend the few dollars and invest a little time to set the app up with all of your favorite recipes and pantry items and the app will practically do the work for you!! You will not regret it. ENJOY!.Version: 3.5
Where has this app been all my life?I wanted an app to put all my recipes into, not show me other people's recipes, import from the web easily, allow search of recipes by one or more ingredient and one or more food type, allow meal planning, store and manage food inventory and grocery lists, show my recipes for which I have all ingredients available to cook on demand, backup to cloud for device sharing and without extra cost or subscription, and allow web entry of recipes but not require a client be downloaded and installed on a computer.
I've tried several recipe-type apps over the years including Paprika, Pepper Plate, at least 5-7 others I can't remember their names right now.
This might sound too flowery or enthusiastic but that's how I feel about this app. It's the only one I've found that does all of my wishes/requirements seamlessly and so well and for so little $! But it also does even more functions I didn't consider a must have like optionally tracking prices, doing something with coupons I haven't used but it's there, creating meal plan templates, and it's so customizable!
What you get for this price is extraordinary in the app market and I'm so impressed and thrilled with it. Highly recommend!.Version: 3.9.5
Great app.I’ve used something similar but that vendor I think stop support even though it’s still in the App Store. This one is great. Has a shopping list that you can pull stuff you need from recipes. The importing recipes from websites is amazing. Even if you have to do it “manually” they make it really easy for you to do it especially importing ingredients. This is one of the apps I use daily. And the only weird thing I would say about this app is that it doesn’t default you to the current day when you open it. You have to choose a start date. And then you view the days that way. And then after the time view you choose is over, you have to go back in and choose another start date. It’s not a big deal. Not enough for me not to use this wonderful app.Version: 3.6.9
One of my daily appsI’ve had this app for over a year... maybe over two years??? Can’t remember exactly when I downloaded it but love it. I have imported over 800+ recipes (no, I haven’t tried them all yet, there are an embarrassingly high number of dessert ones in there)
*** I can put one recipe in numerous categories, making my narrowing down process quicker.
*** I’m a more frugal and efficient shopper with the grocery list.
*** Having the website link on the recipe makes it so easy when someone asks for the recipe (although you can email it too). I usually have to screenshot it because I typically alter the original.
These are just a few of the pros, I could be setting here, typing all day, if I tried to list them all.
Not many of these, but the only reason I didn’t give the app a perfect 5 stars and it wouldn’t let me give it 4.5.
*** Originally, you could have the item price on each one of your grocery list items. I forget which update did away with that, but as a single mom, I greatly miss it. I tried moving on to other apps but it was just too much trouble, so I came back.
*** It doesn’t communicate with Alexa (or Siri)... if this could be addressed, that would be sublime.
All in all, a great app, one that’s on the first screen of my phone..Version: 3.7.3
My heart has been longing for this kind of appThis is hands down my new favorite app ever. It allows you to sooooooo quickly input online recipes and the recognition of directions, ingredients and categorizing ingredients is amazing. Then being able to add meals (and leftovers) to the calendar and save them as templates for future use?! GENIUS. AND, being able to download a grocery list from your date range and see what’s in your pantry already?! This. Is. Outstanding. My life is about to be made easy. I’ve already shared it with so many people the day I got it because I’ve been looking for something like this for a while. And I’ve tried MANY meal planning apps, but most of them have a bad grocery list creator or pantry inventory thing. This is just too good to be true!!.Version: 4.1.2
Updated review: Still a staple in my kitchenThanks to the developer for keeping this app updated, and thanks for all the hard work poured into the app. Mealboard is a regular fixture in my kitchen, used for everything from pantry management to recipe scaling to shopping list creation to, yes, meal planning. Thanks, again! Updated July 26, 2020 -so many fantastic updates and I am still using this app after all these years. That tells me it was a fantastic decision, and one that I hope to keep using for years to come. I rail, rant, and otherwise absolutely fight against subscription models. However, Mealboard is one app that, if done right, I will purchase a subscription for. It is that vital to my kitchen. Updated July 30, 2021 - yep. You guessed it: still going strong. Thanks again to the developer!.Version: 4.0.6
Really helpful and intuitive, easy to useBe sure to log-in to the website once you've synced. This is where you can modify and import recipes from Epicurious and other on-line recipe sites. Easier recipe entry there than via iphone. It's very easy to make out a weeks menu plan and aggregate all the shopping. I love that you see a list of what you need from the store and also a list of what you have at home. This helps when i'm cooking at a friends and need to pull from home stores. I really liked the sample of recipes they've already loaded on the app also. And the ability to email menus and email shopping lists is very handy. Well worth the cost for me. This app is saving me lots of time and we're eating much better, it's fabulous..Version: 3.7.3
Saves Time, Money & StressThis is my 5th week using the app. On Saturday or Sunday I sit down and plan dinner meals for the next week, sync my shopping list, then place my order through my grocers online app to be picked up after work on Monday.
This app saves me time and money for not having to stroll through the store and the stress of coming home and trying to figure out a dinner plan. This app makes cooking much more enjoyable for life after school and work.
My favorite feature is the ability to import and edit recipes....and sync the ingredients into a shopping list! MIND BLOWN!!! I found a site that I like pulling recipes from and imported many. We have tried multiple new recipes since, that I don’t think I would have without this app.
After about 3 weeks of using this app, my 6 year old got upset and in a whiny voice said, “mom, am I ever going to be able to eat chicken nuggets again!?” All I could do was laugh and respond, “ok son, I’ll quit cooking so you can eat more chicken nuggets.”
We did have chicken nuggets that weekend, along with a homemade mac and cheese recipe I found and planned through this app. It was a hit!
Thank you developers of MealBoard!.Version: 4.0.3
Efficient meal planning toolI really like this app, and it has more than met my expectations. I was just looking for something that would allow me to schedule my meals, but I really like the ability to store my recipes and automatically create my shopping list based off the meal plan. I agree with the other reviews that it takes a while to set up, but I've just been adding recipes as I go so it hasn't been bad. The ability to import recipes from just about any site is amazing, and makes the entry process a breeze!
Having everything in one place is amazing. I love being able to open up meal plan on my iPad while I'm cooking to get the recipes I need. The app is a bit clunky though and not so intuitive. Make sure you pay attention to the tutorials to pick up on the shortcuts, they are helpful..Version: 3.5
Great for storing my recipes!I have a lot of recipes that I reference often. Some are just from the Internet, some from Allrecipes, some from my cookbooks. I really wanted to keep all of my favorite recipes together in one place and this app works excellent for that. Using the Allrecipes website is a joke, and I don’t like the app because of the annoying ads that just start making noise out of nowhere. I tried a few different apps for saving the recipes and my favorite was Anylist, but I did not like the idea of paying over and over again subscription style. This app has similar function to Anylist, but with this app, you pay once and done. You can import recipes from your favorite places, or add your recipes manually. Great app!.Version: 3.8.5
Makes planning easyI really love this app! It takes a little work on the front end but once you get it set up it helps a lot. You have to input recipes, so you can use it as your recipe book as well, though I just put in the name and ingredients. This takes the most time. But thereafter it’s just checking the list. Plop what you want to make that week and then create a grocery list! I find it has greatly reduced the amount of unused food going bad in my fridge.
I do not use the supplies list or coupons. Those features to me require too much work to maintain. Especially when if I want to see if I already have green beans all I have to do is open the freezer. But you don’t need to use those at all and it’s fine..Version: 3.6.9
Love this app.Coming from a Galaxy Note 4 using The Grocery Tracker app, I’ve tried many meal planning/shopping list apps in search of an iPhone equivalent and this is by far the closest I’ve found. It takes a little bit to get it set up, but is easy to use once done. The only thing I wish it would do is give me the ability to set store specific aisles and not have to wade through all of the aisles I have created to assign them to products and stores. At least the ability to filter the aisles by store. I would also love if the developer would add the ability to export our grocery list to Walmart grocery, Kroger clicklist, Instacart, etc. Other than that, I am completely satisfied with this wonderful app..Version: 3.7.4
MealBoardAmazing app... as I’ve started using it more it’s useful features become more apparent. This app works great to just collect some of your favorite or harder to remember recipes however if you want to get more serious about meal planning, organizing your kitchen/pantry, eating healthy etc. MealBoard is great for this too. I love the fact that it’s very editable. If you have similar pantry entries it allows you to update them on the fly and then the next time you sync it updates your pantry and recipes. Very well designed and allows importing from all the popular recipe websites. This is all the further you need to look for a recipe/shopping app. I researched a while before going with MealBoard and it has met and exceeded every expectation..Version: 3.6.5
Rating a 4 for now.I spent to much time trying to figure out if I wanted MealBoard or Paprika. I read many reviews and decided to go with MealBoard specifically because of the barcode scanner in the pantry tab. I am really disappointed. I have scanned pancake mix and it comes up with “tv tub the Ching emperor” the “Sunkist tuna came up as dragon ball z Kai” and best of all the Campbells chunky chicken and dumpling came up as “Coed naked trucking XL” and it couldn’t find a lot of the other barcodes I scanned. I am hoping this is the only downfall, I am pretty excited to use this app.
Update- The response time is fantastic. They apologized for the barcode stuff and said they are working on it. I also had another question for them at 10:00 at night expecting it to be awhile to hear from them and it didn’t even take 5 min!.Version: 3.9.5
MealBoard has revolutionized my meal planning and prepAs a homemaker and mom to four kids this app has totally revolutionized and simplified my meal and snack planning, pantry stocking, grocery budgeting, and shopping experiences. And it has cut down on my meal prep times because it’s so easy to pull up recipes right in the app. It also allows me to share recipes easily which is a big bonus in the mom-of-young-kids world, as we moms are constantly hitting each other up for meal ideas. Be sure to check out the Settings to learn about all the wonderful functionalities of the app. I’m still discovering all the bells and whistles and I’m absolutely delighted every time I find a new feature. (Completely unabashed in my love for this app. 😆🙌🏻❤️👩🏻🍳).Version: 3.8
An Excellent AppI love all the features, easy to import recipes from the web, pantry control, meal plan schedule. Is even easy to add your own recipes which later you can add to your mean plans.
Would love to see the ability to add shopping lists to OneNote, the Note App or other notes apps.
It has it’s little bugs but they do not interfere with the functionality of the app. Really love it. But my favorite feature on the app is how simple it is to import recipes. Even if the website is too complicated, you can still, with a little more work, import the ingredients, servings, steps, name and more with ease.
This because a Meal Planner without recipes would not be a Meal Planner at all. And having to enter recipes by hand, after 10 recipes in a row, would be boring nightmare.
So yes, I love the app, help me keep track of my meals, and once you set up your pantry, it helps you even keep track of your shopping needs. No more “I bought these by mistake twice” errors. Very powerful.
I do recommend to buy the full version. The free version has a very short limit for recipes imports. But let me tell you, is totally worth it..Version: 4.1.2
Good, not great...yetI chose this app over paprika 3 because the ingredients and instructions are on the same page so I didn’t have to touch my screen while cooking and the computer version is included. I give it 3 stars because it is cumbersome to import recipes. I have to tap 10 times to get the recipe to load in the app. Would be a lot better to be able to import directly from my browser instead of bouncing between the app and browser. That would be 1 1/2 stars, the other 1/2 star would be able to choose the apps opening page. Developer touted it is customizable, but I don’t use the meal planning part. I should be able to change the start page to recipes instead of meal planning. Developers seem to have made several updates since launch and I’m hoping these 2 are in the apps future..Version: 3.6.9
Best of the bestI’ve looked at and tried many pantry/recipe apps but this one is absolutely tops in my book! From the ease of downloading recipes from other sites or letting me input my own, to the shopping list, to the menu planner, to the pantry organizer that lets me name the spaces the way I want to name them, to the ability to categorize my recipes to being able to record prices, stores and expiration dates; this app is just almost perfect for me.
What is missing? The only thing I would like to see is a second location for pantry items. When I buy a case of diced tomatoes, some go in my kitchen pantry and others go into other pantry areas and I’d love to be able to note that.
Otherwise, just fabulous!.Version: 3.9.3
Versatile Meal PlannerI was looking for a way to list out family dinners for the week and got so much more! To be clear this app requires some setup time but in the end is totally worth it. My main problem with other meal planning apps was that the recipes were either too gourmet for my kids or chosen for me. MealBoard, on the other hand, is a powerful blank slate! It has a few recipes to get you started but I deleted most of them since the dinners my family will eat are pretty basic. MealBoard lets you easily import any recipe from any website to build your customized recipe list to choose from in the future. MealBoard is the perfect custom recipe box / meal planner / shopping list / ingredient tracker all rolled into one..Version: 3.7.3
Flawless! SeriouslyThis app does exactly what it is supposed to do. I have never found an app that works perfectly, until this one. It imports recipes that are hidden in extraneous stuff and that are disjointed and intentionally segmented. And it does it just like you want. I’m amazed at how it finds and isolates ingredients and quantities. Looking for a recipe for the ingredients you have on hand? This suggests them. Need a shopping list for next weeks menus? This has it ready! Need to pass it along to another shopper? You can do it!
Seriously, this app is flawless. It has a depth of development that constantly surprises me. There are many features I haven’t explored yet, but I am extremely happy with this app. I know you will be too!.Version: 4.0.5
Love this convenient toolI’ve loaded over 200 recipes into this app with ease (some importing, some entering) and use it daily, mostly for recipes while cooking. When I do plan a menu ahead of time and use the grocery list feature, it is very handy. I email the list to myself and can check off the items in the little box as I go from store to store. No complaints whatsoever and a great price for the convenience of a curated set of no-fat, Whole food, plant-based recipes. When I had a question about a website not automatically importing the recipes, the support person fixed the problem immediately. The recipes can be emailed to friends and I appreciate that feature, too..Version: 3.6.5
Best App ever!Makes my life so much easier! It takes some time to upload all your recipes/ingredients but when that is done, your meal planning and shopping list take literally 5 minutes! Importing new recipes is very very easy. I am a big fan of app that can save me time and this one is by far my #1! Thank you for making this app available!.Version: 4.0.5
Some great features, but missing out.I really want this app to be great, but it lacks a few features to make the experience great.
The basic features are all here - recipe importing, adding to a grocery list, pantry inventory and meal planning. But when I’m cooking, I don’t want to touch my phone and the app doesn’t offer Siri integration Or the ability to input items from Reminders.
Ignoring that feature, the app does what is claims to do..Version: 4.0.6
Every organized person's dreamThis app has been very useful in helping me stay on budget and reducing food wastage. It's also great how you can email your shopping list to yourself or others and the list is in a checklist format!.Version: 4.0.3
MealboardSo far so good ,takes awhile to get to know how to navigate it..Version: 4.0.4
Well doneGreat support. App works as advertised. Makes meal planning and grocery lists a snap. Like the new format..Version: 4.0.2
The best grocery and meal planning appI have been using MealBoard for years and years. It works really great, simple to use yet very powerful. And it keeps getting better !.Version: 4.0
Great appLoving all the features in this meal planning app. Highly recommend.Version: 3.9.5
Amazing!I had downloaded this app a few years ago and liked it a lot. Then I changed to a different one. Not really happy with the new one so tried MealBoard again. WOW! Why did I ever leave? I’m so happy that I came back. This is a super helpful app & has everything I could possibly want and need. Thanks for making such a fantastic app!.Version: 3.9.5
Okay.. not sure it’s fully worth it.It does what it says, but takes a lot of work to actually setup and maintain. The following issues prevent this from being really useful:
1. Barcode scanner does not work well.
—- the database is limited to only a couple of stores (doesn’t work with any Costco brands, and not great with Superstore/Loblaws). So have to enter a lot by hand.
—- Products get added with the manufacturer’s specific name versus the generic name, which means you have to relabel everything. Apps like MyFitnessPal have a much better barcode scanner.
2. Very limited recipe list included and no obvious way to bulk transfer a bunch of recipes from another site. The app really needs to come with something like the “top 300 cheap and basic” meals with basic things like omelette, sandwiches, pasta, meat-potato-veggie meal so that it’s up and running. Then people can add special meals. This app has huge potential with its “meals based on current stock” function, but requires the user to invest a LOT of time to get it usable.
The main point of the app is to quickly keep track of stock, develop meal plans based on saved recipes, and make a grocery list for what your missing. The lacking recipe database makes it impossible to actually use right away and poor scanner means you still have to input everything by hand which is really time consuming to maintain..Version: 3.9.5
Long-Term Usage and LoveI've been using this app almost daily for years. It works exactly as I need it to, makung meal planning, shopping, and prep very easy..Version: 3.9
Love it but...Love this app, but can we bring back the in stock recipe option?.Version: 3.9
Perfect!This app is exactly everything I needed for meal planning. I love that when I import recipes, if I copy a URL it automatically navigates there. I can even import recipes in languages other than English by soecifying the components of the recipe with the Tools bar. Awesome! The planning tool is also very flexible and just detailed enough. Doesn't have any pretty but useless extras, just the functionality and ease of use for family meal planning. Thank you!!.Version: 3.9
MealBoardEasy to use. Everything in one place..Version: 3.8.7
THIS IS THE. BEST. APP. EVER.I am so, so happy with this app. I don’t usually purchase apps, but this was worth every penny..Version: 3.8.7
Love this appThis app works so well for me. Love how it allows me to choose my recipes for my week's meals and then generate my shopping list. So easy and then you can import recipes from the Web and you don't have to input data. This app has changed the way I plan meals and shop. I love love love it and would be totally lost without it. Most useful app in the world..Version: 3.8.7
This one is the bestHands down the best in this category. Maybe not the coolest interface (but they’re making progress) but it’s really powerful. Importing recipes from the web is a breeze (I now have close to 1,000 recipes), notifications are really nice, works well on iPad and iPhone. I just love this app.
There’s only one more feature that I’d like to see (but it’s a biggie): being able to sync the shopping list with a second person so when one checks off an item it also checks off on the other person’s phone..Version: 3.8.7
The only way I don’t waste food!I’ve been using this app for close to a year, and it’s super simple to use and really helps me to save money on groceries and actually use all the groceries we buy! No complaints at all, it’s great..Version: 3.8.7
MomOnTheRunI’ve been using this app now for several months and absolutely love it! There are many features and it’s quite versatile, let’s you customize many aspects like editing recipes after you import them from websites. 98% of web site recipes I’ve imported from the internet were compatible. And for my family recipes long stored in print cookbooks, I can manually enter them in the app :) I also luv that the menu plan keeps track of when you last used a recipe. Was worth every penny!.Version: 3.8.5
Love this appExtremely useful, have been using it for 4 years now, try many others and this one is the best I found so far..Version: 3.8.1
Very handy appI love MealBoard. I love how easy it is to import recipes and then when I’m cooking, I don’t have to scroll through 800 pages of information about the entire process of how this recipe came about and how it made the creator feel and what their cousins-friends-uncles-dogs favourite toy was.
The only thing I dislike about it, is it won’t let me create my own categories for saving the food. I’ve got spice recipes, like for tacos, that don’t fit in their pre-programmes categories.
Great app. Worth the money..Version: 3.8.1
MealBoard is AWESOME!!I have been using MealBoard for a month and love it!! My daughter and husband will scan for meals they want to Eat and add it to the meal plan. What a great way to get the family involved!! And this app makes shopping a cinch!! So glad that you have created this app!!.Version: 3.7.4
The BEST Recipe Manager Ever!I have had this app since the beginning & it gets better everyday. Love the idea of looking on a browser for recipes & if I like it & want to use it, I just open mealboard & go to import recipes & voila the website is there ready to import.
Love the idea that I can do everything on my iPad Pro & syncs to my iPhone 8.
Having a meal plan using its own calendar is great. I still have a hard time getting rid of items I’ve already shopped for. 2 weeks later it’s still there, I’m sure I’m missing a step somewhere, minor problem.
LOVE..LOVE!!, LOVE this app!!!!.Version: 3.7.3
FanFREAKINGtastic!Big love for this app. Works like a charm. Easy to use.
I have finally found a way to get myself to make and follow menus for the week.
Love the shopping list and pantry.
And finding recipes...sooooo easy.
As folks have already said, doing the initial set up takes a while but it is SO WORTH IT! And simple to do.
Only thing I can think of by way of improvement is to have the groceries magically turn up in my pantry when I check them off on my shopping list.
Thank you for a fabulous tool to help me get healthier and happier..Version: 3.7.3
Love this app!I have been using this app since it first started. Would love to see some integration of nutritional values if possible but otherwise works well and love the recipe import feature the most..Version: 3.7.3

Excellent recipe manager and moreReally very happy with this app. I’ve been using it for years and although it’s a bit of work, once things are configured correctly, you can easily create meal plans and required shopping lists incredibly easily. An amazing recipe import engine lets you grab recipes online without difficulties.
Great app!.Version: 3.6.9
Love it so far!I’ve just been adding my recipes and setting up some meal plans (haven’t tried the pantry or shopping lists yet, thus the 4/5) but so far so good!.Version: 3.7.1
Game Changer! Could definitely be the best app of its kind but not yetThis has huge potential. Fix the bar scan reading, get more stores on board from other countries. Work with grocers that do home delivery, integrate this app into their system and you will be without a doubt the best app of this kind..Version: 3.6.9
User FriendlyI used to pay a yearly subscription for the same thing this app can do for a small one time fee. Great app and very user friendly to add new recipes and to simply add other items without a recipe..Version: 3.6.9
Excellente application!Fonctionne très bien. Beaucoup de fonctionnalités pratiques. Facile à utiliser. Parfait pour regrouper toutes ses recettes en un seul endroit! L’importation de recettes fonctionne bien, même sur des sites francophones..Version: 3.6.9
Simple recipe importing and decent uiThis application works much better than any of the free options. The recipe importing works really well, and the ingredient categorization is good. The application is not particularly simple to use or navigate, definitely room for improvement there. I would also like to see a more user friendly web version for recipe importing..Version: 3.6.9
Good App - Does what it says on the tin!Great app I have been using it for years now, after trying others, this in my opinion is by for the best one out there. Once I got comfortable with it, i stopped looking.
Easy to use and I love nearly everything about it.
ONLY downside, the web platform needs to be more user friendly so that when I put in a recipe I can add it to my meal plan directly..Version: 3.6.8
Amazing amazing amazing!Love importing recipes and keeping a grocery list. Everyone needs a email plan!.Version: 3.6.8
Love it - I use this app every single dayI’ve had this app for years but only used it for camping. I recently started using it for regular meals and it has made a huge difference in how much time I spend thinking up suppers and deciding what to shop for. I use this app every day now. It is now in my top 3 daily apps.
I can import recipes from the web in less than 1 minute. I can make a weeks worth of meal planning and do up my shopping list in 5-10 minutes (in fact I have done this from the grocery store parking lot on one occasion!). And when I get home, I add the items to my pantry list with the flick of my wrist.
I often start by looking for recipes to import from the web. I then duplicate a recipe I like and make it my own by altering or making notes. I share recipes with my mother by emailing them to her so she can import it into her MealBoard.
Recently I have been tagging recipes by family member indicating their favourites. Additionally my young sons have started to help out. I tag recipes by which of my sons made it or could help with the prep work (eg one son is in charge of making pickling spice, the other helps by measuring out the dry ingredients for pancakes, in time for the weekend)
I spend less time looking in the fridge because I know what ingredients and leftovers I have (which means I throw out less food also).
One more note...my husband and I tried once to keep track of the pantry items but now I know that the trick to keeping things up to date, is to have the recipes and meals planned. I even have recipes for basic 3 ingredient items - not because I need to go by a recipe but because MealBoard adds the items to my shopping list and then my pantry.
Ok. Enough raving. Go ahead and buy this app now. Lol.Version: 3.6.8
Great App!Love how easy this makes meal planning and grocery shopping. Not always intuitive; a little more initial instruction for all the features would be nice. Overall awesome!.Version: 3.6.8
Great appCook for a living. This makes organizing meals for the week so easy. Great shopping list! Sync!.Version: 3.6.6
Fabulous AppThis app is well worth the price of entry. Recipe entry is made VERY easy, no matter the form. Meal planning is the second most important aspect for us, which in turn makes the shopping list aspect very convenient. We notice that we are able to have far less waste planning our groceries this way. Combine the meal planning with shopping list and then using other apps to compare grocery costs and now you are reducing your grocery bill! Thanks to the developers for making a truly useful app..Version: 3.6.6
So useful everydayI love it & use it everyday, all day long. I plan meals for my work week and save as a template. I have a 9 week work rotation and plan according to days on/off, then load whatever week I’m on. I adjust for changes like seasonal fruit & veg or if I want to try a new recipe but my template cuts down on re-entering the basics that I eat regularly. I really love the pantry inventory system attached and making shopping lists from both the pantry and the meal plan. I use it for shopping exclusively where I can enter price & expiry before adding the whole checked list to my pantry in one stroke. I’ve used other inferior shopping apps but having this integrated with inventory & meal plans is perfect for me. I totally recommend it..Version: 3.6.5
Best meal planning appI've been using MealBoard for over 6 years. I have tried other methods, but keep coming back. The customizable categories are great, the shopping list generator and share feature are super handy, and the support is amazing! It doesn’t import any old recipe you find online, but I HAVE successfully imported many recipes from websites that are not on the supported list. It would be hard for me to do without this app! One of my essentials, for sure..Version: 3.6.5
Best recipe organizer ever!I purchased this app to plan meals ahead of time and was surprised at how much more this app actually does! ...tells me what I already have in my pantry directly in each recipe? Dayum, how convenient is that? I say lots. Thanks so much for a brilliant gem!.Version: 3.6.5
Perfect, perfect, perfectUpdate: DECEMBER 31, 2017
It's rare that something continues to be so good. Recent changes have made this even better. It's imports recipes so well. Best money I have ever spent on anything.
Original post - I don't know...like 3 years ago? Something like that.
I am so happy that I found this app, I can't even tell you. I have purchased several recipe apps, thinking that they would allow me to do what I wanted, but they didn't.
The biggest features I was looking for:
- easy importation of my old family recipes (yeah, I finished importing over 50 recipes in just a few hours...this may sound like. a lot of time, but I had to do some reformatting before I could start)
- easy access to import recipes from websites (cant wait to get started!)
- and creation of grocery lists (this is going to be so helpful when I have to send my hubby to the store for stuff)
Was far exceeded by the added ability to:
- customize the stores that I shop at
- track the current contents of my pantry
- and access the my own recipes from my iPhone and my ipad.
- menu planning (and the ability to do so by specific amounts of time)
Looks like Ray Bernardo thought of everything. Ray, if you are looking to develop more, optional nutritional information fields and a measurement and temperature converter would be great, and linking recipes into the MyFitness pal app would make this the best thing ever.
The only thing I wish is that I wouldn't have wasted my time trying to get the other apps to work for me..Version: 3.6.4
I live by this appIf your wondering if this purchase will change your life, it has for me. Mealboard thinks of everything, from meal plans to shopping lists that can be emailed to all who can buy groceries. It takes a bit of time to manually enter your recipes but they have the option to import from a select list of websites. It’s a great way to stay on top off life's greatest chore, eating..Version: 3.6.5
