Thanks Cookie I have downloaded it too and I can actually use it , great.   I downloaded another app ages ago but I couldn't work out how to use it.    This one is going to be great put in four recipes in no time at all. Even added a new page for bread.

I gave up on printed recipes too.
I love the paprika app, easy to copy and paste, add recipe photos, add categories, and I sync it with my iPhone....so at the supermarket, I can look up any recipe and check for the ingredients  8)

I have snaprecipes too - it's great. I also put lots of recipes on Evernote. For both of these i use my ipad when cooking.

I love snaprecipes. I went to tear a couple of pages out of magazines this afternoon and remembered that I now longer need to do it.

I agree AB it is very easy to use.

I use Evernote for most recipes but just downloaded snap recipes for mags or cookbooks I see that I only want a recipe or two out of and don't have time to write it down

Thanks Gert.

CP, I like your idea. The trouble is, I have a lot of recipes given to me that are hard copies or have been written down in my little spiral bound recipe book. I'll play with snaprecipes and see how that goes.

Thanks all!
A great cook is one who can rustle up a fabulous family meal with some freezer burnt chops, wilted carrots, sprouting potatoes and cabbage that's gone brown on the cut edges.

What I really like about Snap recipes is the 5 photo spots for each recipe.  I have found that for say,  No Fuss Bread,  I can add variations,( ex.  In a cold oven) in with the main recipe. 

What I don't like,  and this could be me not using it correctly, is, 1 the basic index.  The recipes are listed in chronological,   order , I would prefer them to be shuffled into alphabetical order.
                                                                                                 And 2.  When I wish to find a recipe,  for example,  Chinese,  unless Chinese is part of the title,  although marked in the sub titles,  it doesn't show.

On the whole I am VERY happy with this programme.

It does have its downfalls I agree. So far I have found it easy to use. I love the 5 photos too.

Today I noticed that now that I have a lot of recipes in,  it has sorted them alphabetically.  This is great.

Thanks for that Chookie. I seem to be relying on my iPad more and more for holding recipes. Not sure if it is a good or bad thing.

Chookie you can create a "Chinese"  section so that you can look specifically for that. I have added a few of my own to personalise to my requirements.

I've created a couple of my own sections too. Very useful.
