  • We renamed “Cooking Challenges” to “PTE Recipes.”
  • We refreshed several UI elements such as header titles, planner menus, modal animations, and shopping list categories.
  • We fixed a UI bug with the collapsible calendar animation in the planner.
  • We fixed a bug related to the number link next to each grocery store in your shopping list. It will now scroll you to the purchased items section of your shopping list when “Consolidate Purchased Items” is selected in your settings.
  • We fixed several bugs related to modal animations and page navigation.

Desktop Updates

The development team continued to make updates and fix bugs on the website version of Plan to Eat.
