  • Best Recipe App for All kinds of people Jul 14, 2018

    By Tina Nessa Ceon
    I love Yummly, I don’t remember how I found out about it. But it has been a lifesaver, it’s great to save recipes I find online that I want to look at later and not get lost in the bookmark section of my phone. It’s also good for a vegan like me to find recipes, but also serving size and nutrition facts.I scan look at all the egan recipes in one place instead of looking them up online and finding out it isn’t vegan. Plus I can look for recipes using certain ingredients I have laying around. They have such a inclusive dietary preference all types of vegetarians, paleo, plus all kinds of allergies. They have now guided videos, I’ll check those out soon and see what they’re like. I honestly can’t think of anything to complain about. It’s a useful tool for me and one of the must-have food apps on my phone. All the other exclusively vegan recipe apps , or just general apps are overpriced and don’t do half the things Yummly does or if they do you have to pay a ridiculous subscription fee. The best part it is all free! Not a free app with a lot limitations on certain recipes, but there’s a premium membership with access to over thousand of recipes and videos. Or it’s a free trial , it’s actually legitimately free, I mean it has prompted recipes from brand companies but its clearly labeled. Plus I mean the app has to be paid for somehow. If that’s the only ads I’ve got to deal with, I’ll take it!

  • I love this app!!! Jan 2, 2019

    By Shelbi W.
    The design of this app is awesome. It manages to pull recipes from many sources smoothly, and it’s great about searching specific ingredients/certain types of meals. It consolidates all the recipe info in a clean, straightforward way, so when you spot something you want to try you can quickly see nutritional info, ingredients, prep time etc. from the app, without having to scroll through the actual site the recipe was posted on trying to find all that information (if you choose to make the meal you will THEN go to the full recipe site for the directions, but it’s still from within the app). It lets you create different lists, which I really like, and you can even tell it to create shopping lists for you based on the recipe you’ve picked. You can also tell it what ingredients you have on hand and it’ll will give you recipes that you can make using those ingredients, or what time you plan on eating something. It will give you reminders on when to start prepping the meal if you give it a time. So cool. Seriously, this thing is great. I love it.

    I'm really liking this app so far as it has a good amount of recipes. I wish there was an option to filter by certain ingredients Otherwise, there's a list of disliked ingredients and that's awesome. One of the best recipe finding apps on Google Play store. I also reported a directions link that didn't work last night and got the proper link in a couple of hours from a support email today. Furthermore, I haven't had any problems with crashing.

  • Yummy Yummly Nov 23, 2018

    By HappyGoLucky1970
    I’m a major Foodie. I have found so many incredible and interesting recipes on Yummly. Even ones I’ve used over the years myself. I really enjoy the ability to research so easily. I try a lot of recipes that fall into several different categories. So it’s always a pleasure to come on to the app and be able to research in less time than books, especially when the recipes give you nutritional information that is accurate. However, with all the great things one thing has begun to bother me somewhat. I go to the recipe and the page is gone and that is when you go to directions. It’s very unfortunate to find a wonderful recipe only to find that it’s not complete or accurate. If you fix this Yummly I will give you the 5 stars. I switch from this app Yummly and Food Network to create a planned menu weekly. I also use true and tried recipes I’ve counted on throughout the years. I try as often as I can to give a comment on the recipe I am trying for the first time. However, with so much cooking and daily life, commentaries can get pushed to the side. I do eventually get to them just may not be the same day. Keep up the great job and work Yummly and please fix that error page, I have been disappointed quite a bit lately from that ordeal. Thanks for asking for a review after I used the app for a while. I appreciate the timing.

  • Awesome app! But always room for improvement May 2, 2020

    By TheTonsilBoxer
    I love this app and use it just about every week depending on how busy the schedule is. There’s recipes for almost everything on here. Every recipe I’ve found has detailed instructions for prep and cooking. I can almost guarantee you will find what you’re looking for here. Convenient meals available at your fingertips. Only spots for improvement in my opinion is not having pop ups to go to some blog every time you want instructions for a recipe. The instructions should be right on the app itself. Not that it’s a major hassle or anything but sometimes I don’t want to read about how much mom loves this recipe and wants to stroke it for ten minutes before she shares her secrets with us, who just want simple instructions so we can accomplish making the meal and enjoying it with family/friends. Don’t get me wrong, sometimes I really enjoy reading the blogs when they’re well written or I’m in an interested mood. It would just be cool to have the option of looking at plain instructions along with going to the blogs as well. Also an improvement would be being able to see the recipes my mom has saved or yum’d, and vice versa. Because cooking with mom is how most of us learned or started to learn!

    This app used to be brilliant, inspiring and easy to use. The updates and new features are time consuming and creatively crippling. Now to find a simple recipe you have to put in all the ingredients you have and even then the search results are sadly limited. Like hello, I'm looking for a recipe to fit the couple of ingredients I want to use up and am *going to buy the other stuff I need*.I've used this app for years but it's extremely unhelpful now, will be looking for an alternative.

    When I first downloaded Yummly, it was outstanding. I was finding all sorts of recipe possibilities that my family might enjoy. Everything ran smoothly and I had no problems at all. Over the last 4 months, Yummly has been a disaster. The recipe selection is still outstanding, but the app itself is TERRIBLE. It takes forever to open. It locks up every single time. It closes itself at the most inopportune times. And, when I'm trying to save recipes, it really locks up. SAVE YUMMLY!!!!

  • Yummly in my tummly Apr 10, 2019

    By Karen WMS
    I’ve been using the Yummly app for a few years now. I can find every recipe I am searching for, and believe me it has come in handy. In the last year I’ve switched diets from Mediterranean to Vegan to Keto, now I’m low carb. All the while I’m gluten free. The app makes it easy to obtain allergy free recipes and recipes geared toward my diet. I also receive emails from Yummly. Just before Christmas I receive cool kitchen recommendations. I may put some items on my Christmas list for me or buy items for my friends and family. I am an avid gardener and sometimes need fresh new ideas for an over abundance of vegetables or fruits. With Yummly I can search the vegetables name and find all sorts of recipes. This year I canned my very own tomato sauce with a Yummly recipe! I also learned how to cut a whole chicken in half and roast it! The amount of “Yums” on each recipe make it simple for me to chose what recipe I want to try if multiple recipes pop up under my search. I’m rating Yummly 5 stars because I can always find an outstanding recipe to suit my and my family’s needs.

    I love using this app to find recipes when I only have a few ingredients or want to get a different recipe for a classic dish. I think my favorite part of this app is the copy cat recipes! Overall it's a great app that gives a LOT of options for a large variety of cuisines! I would recommend this app to anyone that has a kitchen!!

  • Very good Oct 12, 2019

    By bogustorequirenamereally
    Good app. Relatively easy to use. Great customize categories for ‘filing’ recipes. Very good content. I will keep using. Could be a little more intuitive on tech side, esp when searching for recipes. It’s nice to search by ingredient/omit ingredient, & would be better if could just search categories of food by type of food or main ingredient or basic type of recipe name...in other words the equivalent of searching by subject at the library. Have found it hard to do that. When opening a traditional cookbook/recipe book, you can do so and it’s efficient, esp w/an index. It took me 45+ min to find a recipe the other day. Easier access to FULL recipes would be better/appreciated, although I understand why clicking to the recipe author’s scroll-thru-29-ads-and-other-misc-stuff-to-get-to-free-full-recipe-directions is necessary in the current pay-for-play-with-time/distraction/ads/broken up text-model of receiving “free” content via electronic media/apps. I’m not sure if there is a paid version of Yummly and even more important, I have my doubts that a paid version would eliminate the above mentioned scroll-thru-15pages to get to full recipes/instructions.

    This was my absolute favorite recipe app until recently. Recently it's constantly closing, not opening, or taking forever to load. I actually came here to see if others were experiencing the same issue and it looks like a common problem. It's really too bad I absolutely love this app but it's trying my patience lately and not worth it to browse now I just go for the recipes I already have saved 🤢

    App is pretty decent really like the way to have the pantry ready recipies section available. Wish you could add corresponding cookware, where you could add more types of recipes that require different types of tools and cookware. not everyone has a blender or cupcake pans available to them to make some recipes. it'd be nice for unexperienced cooks to have that option to know what to use to cook their food with.

  • Great App for Certain Uses Dec 1, 2019

    By SarahASmall
    This is a great app to find new recipes, but it is not so friendly when you want to save and compile recipes that you already use. I was able to find many, but not all, of the recipes I like to use (from certain blogs/websites). I do not use any filters, so I am unsure why the search function does not recognize certain recipes that easily come u when I google search. To my knowledge, there is NO function to either import a missing recipe from another link or manually enter a recipe (that may not be online). I would prefer to have all of my recipes in one place, so that I do not have to check multiple websites, apps, or personal notes. Maybe this is not the purpose of this app, but it would make it easier for people that are trying to get everything in one app. It would also be great to “follow” blogs or websites that I like within this app so that the recipe feed can include recipe makers that I already trust in addition to recipes the app suggests to me.

  • Almost There Feb 18, 2019

    By MelGreer
    This a review of the app only. I give this app 3 stars because as others have mentioned, the user interface/experience (UI, UX) leaves a lot to be desired. - Login was my first obstacle. I made the mistake of trying to use my own email address rather than Google or Facebook. Each time I left the app in my iPhone X, I was forced to have an email sent to my email where I had to click a button (never worked) or a long link (ok). That opened the app for me, but I spent a couple of hours trying to correct this issue. - Hoping that perhaps the app was not friendly to iOS and X, I tried logging on via MacBook Pro. Here I tried to set my password (mistake). This involved resetting my password (wait for email again), try to set a new password which gave me the message that the reset time period had expired. - I really did NOT want to use either my Google or Facebook account to log in but it was my last attempt. Finally, I tried that and all went smoothly. I was able to skip all the choices I had made before since their server remembered them all. - Also, to see the directions/instructions for any recipe, I was forced to turn my iPhone horizontally in order to press the button. Once I got signed in, the app presented a lot of nice options (When to start a recipe, shopping list, food allergies to avoid and more), but for now, I'd say it's not ready for prime time yet if it's going to make it so difficult to sign in.

  • Can’t find what I want — impossible you say, right? May 4, 2020

    By Danny Boy100
    It is an anomaly — what with the hundreds of recipes — there are times when I have searched for something so simple that, instead of simple, I get everything but. Take just a basic beets-from-a-can recipe, for example. All I wanted was how to jazz this veggie up, especially since now “canned” almost everything is safer than fresh. Try it yourself: you will get a page that gets stuck, literally, on “marinated” beets that you practically need to power off to get to another page — going to the back button won’t do. Or you get exotic recipes for “fresh” beet dishes. What I needed were some herbs and spices that go well with beets “from a can.” Who has the time to plow through every fancy recipe to find one or two “herb/spice” suggestions? A section on what basic herbs and spices go with each category (canned or fresh) — like carrots, green beans, peas, broccoli, cauliflower, asparagus, corn etc. — would be a welcome addition.

  • Huge disappointment Nov 13, 2018

    By Bannerv
    One of the first steps to this app is inputting our dietary preferences- I am a vegetarian although I choose to eat seafood (pescatarian). In my dislikes, I was offered to mention I don’t like beef or pork (as is it wasn’t obvious.. unnecessary step)— so I did. My ‘personalized preferences’ page is a cluster of recommendations.. all with meat in them, such as beef stew and pot roast. Even if these are relative to trending recipes, why should they be shown to a person that eats absolutely zero meat? I could imagine this app is a nightmare for vegans as well. It is not easily navigable as it claims to be, user interface is poorly designed and proves to be an ultimate disappointment. Ten minutes into the app and I am already confused and very unmotivated to learn about the complications due to the poor recipe recommendations (I’ll pass!). I don’t recommend it if you have any sort of dietary needs.
