Mobile App Updates

We were busy this month adding new features and squashing bugs for our iOS and Android app. This month, we released version 2.8.6 and 2.8.8.

  • We fixed a bug preventing the Friends list from scrolling.
  • We fixed a bug causing the “This Week” date range option on the shopping list to revert to a different week if your calendar has a modified starting day on
  • We fixed a bug causing focused form fields not to scroll into view.
  • We fixed a bug causing the “Edit a Copy of This Recipe,” “Duplicate Recipe,” and “Edit Recipe Categories” buttons to fail to open those pages.
  • We fixed a bug causing recipe pages not to open when you tap a notification to open them.
  • We fixed a bug preventing some third-party keyboards from typing in the email verification field.
  • We updated page animations to be more performant and fluid.
  • We fixed a bug preventing the “Next” button in the Cooking View from navigating to the next event for that meal time.
  • We fixed a bug causing the event form to default to “Breakfast” rather than “Dinner” in the planner.
  • We fixed a bug causing some accounts to get logged out when the app was updated.

I purchased this app on the recommendation of a friend and am glad I did. There was a small learning curve and the time spent initially uploading and formatting my favorite recipes. The effort is worth it. I have ventured out into trying new recipes. The meal planning and grocery list integrations means it takes so much less effort to plan and shop for the week. Now that I have my system down I can plan for the week in about 5 minutes which used to take me upwards of half an hour or more. The best thing is I don’t have to stress over what to do for dinner half way through the week. The amount of energy that took each day deciding what I was going to cook was a lot, something I didn’t realize until it was gone.
