    Developer responded and working on issue! I have tried downloading the app and then trying to open but nothing happens. When I click on the app, it just brings me back to the main Apple Vision Pro screen. I have removed it and reinstalled it but no luck. Can someone help?
  • Game Changer! Just download it!

  • Love it

    By Thurston County
    I love this app. I came from another popular app to this one because of the strength of the importing features. From a camera picture? Get out of here, no problem! Easily imported >500 recipes I already had and allows me to share with the family. Glad to support this developer.
  • This app changed my family’s recipes and meal planning

    By SkyGuy182
    Honestly it’s a phenomenal app. The features, the ease of use, the fact that I can make a one-time payment to purchase the app and share it with my family. I tell people about it all the time. Love it!
  • Would Appreciate Shortcuts on macOS

    By shamanskyh
    I'm a Crouton Plus customer and I really appreciate the thorough library of shortcuts available on iOS. I'd really appreciate it if the same (or, at least the "Get Recipes for Date" action) was made available on macOS too so that the shortcuts I make could be used across platforms. Thanks!
  • Love this app

    By J's girl 11
    It’s a great app!!! But right now when I go into it it freezes. And I paid a one time fee for it I’m not asking for my money back. I just hope it gets fixed soon
  • Delightful!

    By stetsdogg
    Such an elegant and fun recipe app! Highly recommend :)
  • Great app!

    By app lover calvin
    Very easy to use and great at importing recipes from online. I appreciate the shortcuts support so I can quickly import my existing recipes from URLs. One feature request would be more advanced search/filtering to search for recipes by multiple ingredients
  • Incredible Useful

    By aDam_Nerd
    Crouton is an Incredibly polished and full-featured app while remaining extremely simple to use. Its flexibility for tagging and grouping recipes has helped tremendously when planning meals or as a quick reference. I'm more willing to share recipes now with the variety of elegant share features. For the features that aren't quite ideal, like importing recipes from a social media link, the developer acknowledges the needs and is swift to engage about a potential update in the future. I have used this app nearly every day as of recent, and at least once a week for the last year. Aside from the app itself, as a fellow Software Engineer, It is incredibly warming to see this level of effort and attention to detail from an Indie developer; keep breaking barriers and showing the excellence that individuals - or small groups - can achieve!!
  • Features I purchased in the past now no longer available

    By metr01d
    I was happy to move to this app when I purchased this in the past. I was able to take photos of recipes and these would be smartly added via OCR. Was happy and decided to move from Paprika. However, tried to use the same feature only to find out that you now needed to pay extra (again!) via subscription. Felt like a bait and switch tactic. Please bring back the features we paid for, otherwise, might as well use Apple notes if that’s the case.
