Mela - Recipe Manager for Positive User Reviews

Easily the best recipe manager out thereEasy to use. A joy to add & organize recipes. Beautiful design. Powerful to cook with. I love this app..Version: 2.1.2

AmazingExactly what I’ve been looking for. Beautiful design. Smooth functionality. I’ve been really impressed with how well it imports from sites..Version: 1.0.1

Amazing AppMela’s ability to extract a recipe from an article is pretty magical. The design is beautiful and the feels very snappy. I’m really happy with this purchase. The only feature request I have is more robust support for images. Two ideas: Support for extracted multiple images from a site and the ability for images to be displayed in line with steps. I have a bunch of recipes that have step-by-step imagery..Version: 1.2.3

Beautiful and functionalThis is exactly the recipe app I've been looking for. My only ask relates to the Mac version—it really begs for a Safari extension. Otherwise, both apps are well worth the investment. Addendum: Categories UI needs a bit of work. Too many taps to assign multiple categories. The Good Links app nails this..Version: 1.1.1

DrPrrfecto!! However, one more thing to add - video recepies!.Version: 1.1.1

Been waiting for this oneI have tried a half dozen other apps. I shelled out decent cash for them, too. When I found Mela, I dropped them all and consolidated on this one. Finally: iCloud sync—other apps don’t need my recipes and grocery lists on their servers, simple tagging—no need for layers organization systems, clean design—no clunky interface. It’s a keeper. Thanks..Version: 1.0

PerfectOne of the few perfect apps. It makes cooking and managing recipes so much easier and just even more fun. It’s a beautiful app and one of the most useful applications on my phone..Version: 1.4.3

One stop shopLet’s start with: How many difference places do you go to find a recipe you liked or saw and saved before? Like let’s look at the browsers favorite, or maybe it was saved in a different browser? Or maybe it was in an app? Oh no right it was in this book my aunt gave me. Well! This app is fantastic because you can easily import the recipe from websites and tou can turn your recipe book pages into a digital recipe really easily. From the website it will recognize a recipe and take off all that blogger life story to just keep the stuff tou actually went on the page to get and make it so easy to add to your repertoire of saved recipe that you may or may not ever make. But at least you’ll know where to find it. And adding a recipe from a book is done within a minute. Just scan the page with your device, select the text and mark it as instruction, ingredients, notes or whatever and it will automatically add it in the right section in the app. Just maybe have a quick look to make sure it didn’t crop an important information but honestly love it. Been going through all the different places I had saved recipe and been adding them all there. Have a friends recipe book with couple recipe I think I’d like, took a minute and it was saved in my app if I ever decide I want to try it. Great app to reconcile everything and stop waiting time looking in different places for recipe I’ve seen and saved before. Happy cooking!.Version: 1.2.1

LOVE THIS APP!So easy to use. Built in browser. Make categories for your recipe's on the fly. Haven’t found a recipe that won’t copy into this recipe manager.Version: 2.1.2

Legendary!By far the best recipe app. Silvio nails all the details—every part of the app is near-perfect and a pleasure to use..Version: 1.4.4

Gorgeous and BrilliantI have tried many recipe apps over many years, so I can speak with some credibility when I say you should buy this app for it’s elegance, beauty, and extremely clever features. Kudos to the developer for creating such a standout app in a crowded app category..Version: 1.2.3

The best money I’ve ever spent on an appMela is such a joy to use. It does exactly what you want in a recipe manager in a beautiful interface..Version: 1.2.4

Amazing app!If you are looking for a recipe organizer or want to get more into cooking, this app is perfect. It reminds me of the classic great apps back when the App Store was new and exciting. One purchase and you get a great product! Buy!.Version: 1.3.1

Beautiful and UsefulUses UIKit components very well. Blends in with other iOS apps seamlessly..Version: 2.0.3

Génial!Ça fait plusieurs années que je cherche un bon logiciel pour gérer mes recettes. C'est la première fois que je trouve les fonctionnalités dont j'ai besoin avec un bel interface agréable à utiliser. J'adore ce logiciel et je le recommande sans hésitation!.Version: 1.0.2

A beautiful startAbsolutely beautiful recipe app that really makes the most of iOS, you won’t regret your purchase. I’d love to see some Improvements around scaling recipes to give more flexibility and the groceries list is perhaps too simple when you’re completing a big shop..Version: 1.1.1

Gorgeous app!!This is such a well-made app that makes saving and tagging recipes from different websites a dream! And the interface is beautiful to boot. If the developer ever adds a homescreen widget, I would be as happy as a clam (which I’ll be cooking for dinner tonight thanks to this app).Version: 1.4.4

Amazing AppThis is the best app I have ever used hands down. It understands what the common pain points are of people trying to compile recipes in a modern fashion from all their different sources (web, cookbooks, posts) and is extremely adept at handling and importing recipes from different sources. The app is a breeze to use. Well worth the trivial amount of money. You will almost never have to type anything in this app which saves you a ton of time..Version: 1.2.4

Great app with frequent improvements all the timeLove this app. Incredibly easy to use and intuitive to use, every time I think to myself: “oh x would be a nice feature” the following week it appears in the app. Highway recommend..Version: 1.2.1

Best recipe app I’ve used so far!This has been the best recipe/grocery app I have used. The UI is beautifully simple and easy to navigate. The recipe import features work great, are super clean, easy to read, and well organized. I can pull just about any recipe from the web. The grocery features are great, too. Adding groceries from a recipe is super simple, and it even translates to my Reminders app grocery list. I definitely recommend giving this a try. It’s worth the couple bucks..Version: 1.1.1

Works magically but lacking a minor but important featureThe import is magic and swift but Mela can’t import or add pictures under each step..Version: 1.2.1

Really well done appI have been using this app for a few weeks, and love the functionality. Importing apps from blogs and websites is pretty much flawless. I thought that was great, then I tried the scan recipe from a cookbook function and was blown away. It was almost perfect - a couple of minor things I had to edit - and the only thing that really confused it was my hand-written note. Very well done! I look forward to future upgrades..Version: 1.4

VersatileIt’s a phenomenal app for saving all kinds of recipes. First I wasn’t sure if it was fit for cocktail recipes, but it turned out to be perfect for this task. I only wish that app could recognize ‘barspoon’ as a measure category in order to highlight it. I have to use ‘teaspoon’ for now. Otherwise I’m very happy with the app and its tagging capabilities which are indispensable for searching through cocktail recipes..Version: 1.1.1

Fantastic app! Two suggestionsI adore this app and had previously used Paprika. This is much better for my calendar integration, allowing me to share meal plans with my family. I do have two suggestions: 1. Improve the grocery list. Try to group similar items whenever possible, which Paprika was able to do much better. Or, consider having an internal grocery list similar to Paprika. This is one area that I believe paprika did much better than this app. It can be kind of a nuisance. I think this is a critical improvement! 2. Long term, consider Apple HealthKit integration. If you plan to eat a meal on your calendar, the calories can be added to dietary intake after the meal is complete. We already have nutrition facts, so this should be straightforward to add. This is less critical than the above suggestion though..Version: 1.5.1

Beautiful + seamlessWow, what fun to use! Also, the fact I can share and import recipes right from the web is absolutely incredible..Version: 1.1.1

Beautifully simpleBeautiful recipe app which syncs using iCloud and offers the ability to share your library with others. Brilliant..Version: 2.0

Feature request: nutrition data calculationGreat app, but there’s not always nutrition data associated w recipes. Would be HUGE if recipes could auto-calculate rough nutrition facts from free public online databases.Version: 1.6.2

Scaling Ingredients Calculations “Bug”Great app! Using the Scaling Recipe feature, I found to be good except when I had used a decimal point and number for an ingredient. For example, I had “.75 grams yeast” in a recipe. When I scaled this 3x, this measurement transformed to “.225 grams”. I fixed this by adding a zero before the decimal point. It correctly calculated after this. I feel like this may be a common issue in my recipe library. I don’t typically add a zero to a decimal number but I acknowledge it would be more “correct” to do so..Version: 1.0

AwesomeSuperbly designed app. Best I’ve found so far for managing recipes. Also, very much appreciate it not being a subscription..Version: 2.0

Game changerI’ve tried out a bunch of recipe apps, and this one really crushes the competition. The ability to subscribe to the RSS feeds of cooking blogs and browse an automatically-refreshing feed of neatly formatted recipes without all the distracting bloat that usually fills recipe blogs is a feature I didn’t know I needed. Props to the developer! I’ll definitely be buying the desktop app as well!.Version: 1.0

Awesome appWorks incredibly well with the sites I’ve tried and most importantly, it removes a LOT of resistance to making recipes for me. Having everything in one in place in a straightforward format with all of excess junk removed is soooo helpful. Thanks for making this app!.Version: 1.3.1

Great way to build your grocery listThis makes it easy to share recipes in a common place for my household and quickly build grocery lists. One enhancement I would like to see is a way to easily deduplicate and sum the total count of the same ingredient added from different recipes..Version: 1.2.3

ObsessedThe best app for organizing digital recipes!!! You can even download your recipes & use that file to share your Mela collection with friends..Version: 1.5.1

Like MagicSilvio my man. You are absolutely one of the most proficient developers on the app store. Your apps just WORK!! In today’s world of overbloated, ad-riddled apps, yours shine. Mela is genius. It’s everything I was looking for in a recipe app!! The recipe scanning capabilities and how the recipes look in the app, is perfect. Thank you so much.Version: 2.1.1

Seriously impressiveIncredibly useful app thoughtfully designed and integrated into iOS. One of those apps that once you use it, you’ll never go back. Within an evening I had digitised my entire recipe collection, and could meal plan my next few weeks, whilst adding all the needed ingredients to my Reminders app. My only notes would be to add folders and filters to the All screen, I’d loved to be able to create shortcuts into different categories e.g. Stir Frys or pin certain sources to the front page..Version: 1.5.1

Just what I was looking for…I’ve been a longtime fan of the app Reeder by the same developer and when I found out he had released this recipe storing app I was quite excited. There’s a lot of recipe apps out there but none come close to the beautiful design aesthetics of ‘Mela’. You can add a receipe manually from scratch by completing simple fields of data, add a photo too or you can import a receipe from a website by using the Mela share extension. It also has a built in Grocery list! Fantastic app!.Version: 1.0.4

Just beautifulSo well designed that you will want to cook more just so you can use it. Simple, elegant and super easy to use. Would love to be able to share recipes with my wife but i’ve heard that’s coming soon so all good there. Just keep up the great work..Version: 1.1.1

AmazingI can’t believe how good this app is. The recipe clipping feature works incredibly well, the export options (including pleasingly-rendered PDFs!!!) are super convenient, and the integration with Reminders for grocery items is perfect. Every time I open the app I’m reminded how great it is and I often discover a new helpful feature that I had missed previously. So so good..Version: 1.1.1

Amazing!!!This is the kind of app I’ve been looking for. Being able to import recipes from cooking websites is such a great feature. It allows you to print out recipes without the ads and cruft. Can’t recommend more highly!.Version: 1.2.4

Truly Outstanding Recipe AppPlease add the option to rate your own recipes with 1 to 5 stars..Version: 2.1.2

An amazing appThis app feels like magic. Saving a recipe from a favorite website and converting it into a grocery list with two taps is a genuinely joyful experience..Version: 1.2.3

Where have you been…This is the recipe app I’ve been looking for! Including a best-in-class website recipe importer and awesome cook mode features. Too many to list, just try it..Version: 1.5.1

So good, even my 76yo dad likes itBeautiful app with almost every feature I was looking for, for less money than every good competitor that I found. And it’s so easy even my dad can use it comfortably and enjoys it! The only thing I wish it had was a way to assign meals to a person, as we rotate who cooks in my household. But I know that’s a pretty niche feature, which is why literally no app I’ve found has it! We just use the notes field for now in the meal plan..Version: 2.1.1

PhenomenalThere are only a couple of truly good iOS recipe managers. And then there's Mela, which is phenomenal and, above all, remarkably intuitive. Out of all the iOS recipe apps I have used Mela is the easiest to navigate, organize and cook with. iCloud sync with multiple device just works with out hassle. Ingredients can be sent right to a Reminders grocery list. Recipes can be easily added to the calendar. (Oh yeah, that's what I shopped for to cook on Saturday!) Lastly. Check your current recipe manager. How much data is collected by it? That can be eye-opening. Mela collects no data to be analyzed / resold. NONE. Can't recommend Mela enough. A solid, no fuss, recipe app..Version: 2.0.2

Beautiful native appThis is a beautiful native iOS app with all the functionality I’ve been looking for including amazingly accurate importing of recipes (including share sheet extension) and full recipe library syncing via iCloud which works flawlessly. 5 stars.Version: 1.2

Needs way to save links to recipes it can’t scrapeA few recipes I have tried to import via the web simply will not automatically import the actual recipe (sometimes it gets the ingredient list but can’t see the directions. I know web scraping isn’t an exact science and manually retyping every single step on an iPhone is a pain, but maybe having an option to keep web bookmarks with the other recipes for now would be nice..Version: 1.0.1

The Recipe App I always wantedMela is simple to use, fast and polished. Recipes look nice in the app, but I really like that I can easily share them with anybody by exporting as PDF. They look good (and are easy to read) in PDF form as well! I don’t generally use the fancy import features it provides, I just write my own recipes by hand and it’s great at it..Version: 2.0.3

Bonkers Good - I only wish I'd bought it even soonerWhen you find a developer who echoes your aesthetic and taste, take notice when they release something new. The same usability and refined user experience shines through in this stunningly competent first version. No longer shall I bury recipes in a Read Later App (never to be seen again), or Bookmark then in some deep folder. The recipe parser is superb, and should you find some website that defies it, manual recipe input is elegant and straightforward. A deeply impressive and delightful piece of software. I never thought I'd be excited to be managing recipes..Version: 1.0.3

I wish it defaulted to “cook” modeThe typeface is much more legible in cooking mode, and it’s much more useful to swipe between instructions and ingredients. Paprika’s default typeface is more legible and larger..Version: 2.1.3

Finally the recipe manager I was looking forI finally found the app I was looking for. Mela allowed me to combine recipes that used to be spread across four different apps. I can now access all those recipes in one place with a consistent, clean and modern interface. I used to store recipes in Trello, Instapaper, and the NYT cooking and How to Cook Everything apps. Mela made it incredibly easy to import all those recipes, and I was completely done in only a couple hours. Importing web-based recipes via the built in browser was seamless (including NYT cooking). And even for my non-web based How to Cook Everything recipes, I was impressed by the efficient parsing that easily recognized pasted lists of ingredients and steps, and automatically formatted those sections. The RSS-based feed is just icing on the cake, and I look forward to discovering new recipes from a variety of sources within the app. I expected a lot from the developer of Reeder (which I have used every day for countless years) and I was not disappointed. Highly recommended to anyone looking to consolidate and access their recipes in a single and modern app..Version: 1.0

Good vibes when using this appYou can definitely tell the dev put a lot of love into this app’s design. “Crouton” is a very similar app and comes in a close 2nd to Mela, but despite how good Crouton is, Mela is just THAT much better. And after all, how many recipe apps do you need or can even use….Version: 1.6.2

Meal planning calendarLove the meal planning calendar! Thank you for making this lovely app! It makes finding and storing recipes and cooking easier and more fun..Version: 1.4

Thought I hated following recipesTurns out I hated how recipes were organized and laid out. This app is such a pleasure to use. Easy buy..Version: 1.2.3

Love this App, thank you!This is a great app and good to see the developer continuously making enhancements to make the app better! One thing I would ask if it would be possible to add real time translation as I have encountered occasions where I am on an Italian/ french website and have to copy & paste to google translate. I would love to see this app translate from a different language to English and save as a recipe!.Version: 1.4.4

Beautiful and functionalLove it, it’s my default recipe book now, I use it for everything I cook. I’m even keeping coffee techniques and cocktail recipes in here, all easy to filter with the tags. As you’d expect from the developer the parser is excellent. My collection is growing from websites as you’d expect but scanning cookbooks is fast and surprisingly accurate. Sharing was a huge addition. It’s now the family recipe book, no more asking someone to message over a link to check Ingredients when shopping a few taps and everything goes straight to the shopping list we were already using in Reminders. I wasn’t sure I needed an app for this, a collection of links and photos in Notes had been working fine but I’ve been proven completely wrong. I’m using the app every day at this point just because even if I don’t plan on cooking something a second time adding things is so easy and using the app is just a better experience than any recipe blog/site I’ve come across. It’s not flashy but disabling auto-lock has been an absolute killer feature, it’s just so handy. Very well done!.Version: 1.2.2

Such an Excellent AppIf I could give this 100 stars I would. My friends are tired of me telling them how excellent this app is. The layout, the ease of use, the way you can import from websites or do an OCR scan of a photo, the “cook” mode with highlighted recipe on one side and ingredients on the other, the ability to share with family and friends… it’s all fantastic. I imported almost 100 recipes from my recipe binders the first weekend I had it, just scanning while I was watching tv. Something I’ve been meaning to do for years but I assumed it would take too much time. And now I have a recipe book for my kids! The only feature request I can think of is to allow landscape mode on the iPhone the same way it looks on iPad: with the recipe on the left and ingredients on the right (phone only shows recipe right now). But that’s a minor complaint because we always use our iPads for cooking anyway..Version: 2.1.2

Been Looking For This App For AgesI’ve been looking for an app like this for AGES! Too many other recipe apps are cluttered with a lot of recipes that I don’t care about. I want a place to put MY recipes and this app does just that. Also. THANK YOU for making it feel like such a native app. It feels like an app built for iOS specifically. Oh and they have a Mac app too! Very happy with this app purchase..Version: 1.2.3

Great App with a Surprising ShortcomingI really like this app. I purchased both the macOS and iOS versions and have already entered about 900 recipes. I was looking forward to using my phone in the kitchen to follow the recipes as I cooked but found that the iOS version had no way to search for specific recipes. You have to scroll through manually. It’s not a huge hassle, but it is surprising test there is no search function..Version: 1.2.4

Beautiful app for storing recipesThis app makes a beautiful and very practical. Designed with iOS first an Feature requests: more nutritional information styling similar to ingredients. The ability to schedule to make a meal with x amount of servings and be able to assign each serving (or multiple servings) to specific days..Version: 1.6.2

Fonctionne à merveille!Je suis étonné à quel point cette app fonctionne bien! Les recettes ont un joli look, les fonctionnalités sont nombreuses et je réussis à importer très facilement les recettes à partir de n'importe quel site. Même en français! J'adore particulièrement le flux, qui me permet de recevoir automatiquement les recettes récentes de mes sites préférés. Mon seul commentaire (constructif) la navigation des catégories sur le iPhone est cachée sous un menu peu intuitif. Mais une fois qu'on le sait, tout va très bien!.Version: 1.4.2

Best recipe app around!This recipe manager is by far the best I’ve used. It’s a super clean design and makes it easy to read recipes while cooking. It’s worth the money for the iOS apps and syncs well if you decide to pay for the Mac app (I think both are worth having). The feeds feature is really fun to use to discover new recipes with little effort or just to gain some inspiration. iCloud sync and grocery list integrations both work perfectly for sharing with others! I’d love to see a few additional features in the next updates. Linking recipes inside of recipes, another section to list what cooking equipment is needed, and more styling support for sub-headings in recipes (especially for baking where there’s usually multiple sub-recipes and dry/wet ingredients need to be prepared separately)..Version: 1.2.4

Where have you been all my life?I'm amazed it took me so long to find this app. I've been looking for way to consolidate disparate bookmarked recipes, scribbled notes from my mom, and years of printed, stained, and torn recipes in dirty scrapbooks and Mela does it superbly and effortlessly. It's ability to distill recipes into their basic parts and display them elegantly and efficiently is superb. The addition of the RSS reader is the cherry on top. All of my favorite recipe sites show up in the same well organized place and adding a recipe to my collection is a simple press of a button..Version: 1.4.3

OmgI have never, ever been this excited about an app before. As an avid cook and baker, having the ability to have all of my recipes in one place, not having to navigate websites full of chatter, videos and ads in order to get to what I really need - well, it’s perfect. The ability to scale the recipe up or down makes it even better. Super excited about this one. Thank you!.Version: 1.6.3

This app has changed our kitchenI cannot recommend this app enough. Shared library, easy import, fantastic design, scanning cookbooks. It has everything. Forget 5/5. It’s a 10/10!.Version: 2.0.3

Wonderful, Aside from BrowsingMela has been the best recipe manager I've used of a few. The interface is clean, without a bunch of multi-step fatigue when choosing recipes. The real shine for Mela is the cooking view. On Mac and iPad you have a persistent pane with your ingredients, and a clear view of directions. You can also add multiple timers on the same screen! Other recipe managers I've used aren't any better than viewing a site, so I appreciate Mela being innovative. If I could change anything about Mela, it would be to allow support for Safari extensions. I don't know whether this is possible, but cooking websites have an aggravating amount of ads and other intrusive data tracking practices. Mela doesn't collect any information, and it would be wonderful if the browser followed the same privacy rules. If I want to support a cooking site I buy their cookbook, online ads are a cancer..Version: 2.0

Incredible.Incredible app that does a fantastic job at extracting the correct information from websites and presenting beautifully. I only have two small gripes. As far as I can tell there is no option to set a default serving size and unit of measurement when viewing recipes. It would be great if all measurements could default to metric for me since most websites I get recipes from are American, while I think in metric. In the same vein, it would be nice if when converted to metric it would perhaps add brackets beside measurements in tbsp and tsp to also give these in grams. The other gripe is that the action in the share sheet seems broken for me. It never appears and I have tried to add it. Even with these issues the app is great to use..Version: 1.5.1

Great AppI moved from paprika and really love the clean UI and great UX. I’m looking forward to the family sharing sync as that is a big deal in my house. Other than that I only wish there was a calendar planning feature like paprika.Version: 1.1.1
