Everybody is asking for an app I totally agree. I have been
trying them all, apps, programs sites...you name it. The best one I
found so far is plan to eat, but I so wish it not only had an app
but also a real software for the computer, or an option to export
my recipes in various formats. What I love about plan to eat is the
bulk input. Neither Mac Gourmet or Yummy soup has that. Paprika has
it but it lacks so many other features. I am just wishing for the
perfect recipe management and I know you will make it one
I guess I just have to be patient since it is a small business.
Keep up the good work.
I'm just about to sign up for Plan To Eat, just tried out
Ziplist and Plan To Eat looks like it's more my deal.
About the iPhone pic: it says next to the pic that you can
access their mobile web site, it doesn't say anything about an app.
Also most iPhone apps are just mobile web sites anyway, although
they're missing out on a lot of cool functionality (reminders,
maps, etc) by not making an app, and a ton of business: you'd
generate loads of new users to your site by having an app in iTunes
(yes I'm a product manager). Go get some dough and build an app (or
have me do it!).
Looking forward to setting up my account, thanks for the great

Thanks for the feedback Greg! I'm not completely sold on the idea of being
in the app store because Apple takes 30% of all my subscription fees and
requires me to use their subscription system. However I would like to make
the mobile site work offline and include more features!
Yeah I just read your post regarding that :) If you knew for
sure it'd be all new business and not cannibalize existing revenue
it'd be worth it, probably some way to figure that out. If you grew
1000% as a result of being in the app store it might still be worth
iTunes wouldn't promote you but all the editorial sites focused
on reviewing apps would, cause they're all desperate for content,
so you'd definitely get a bump. Plus all the search engine traffic
from coming up for "meal planner app", etc. But would it pay, and
would you end up growing more on your own without it and then you
get to keep all your revenue?
My gut says you have to play in the app store, as much as that
pisses some people off :) But I'm wrong all the time, so...
Anyway, love your product, just putting my recipes in it now,
and thanks very much for the reply :)
