Mobile App Updates

We’ve been squashing bugs and working on new features for the Plan to Eat app!

  • We updated the planner so past days are now grayed out.
  • We added a “Not receiving verification email?” link to the verification page below the “Use a different email” link. Please contact us if you’re having trouble signing up!
  • We added a beta tag and a disclaimer to the Nutrition Facts calculator.
  • We fixed a bug causing the “Getting Started” video to appear in the recipe book when a search returns fewer than 5 results.

Desktop Updates

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

  • We updated the Plan to Eat logo.
  • We added a slightly cool tint to website gray colors.
  • We fixed some image imports in the recipe clipper.
  • We fixed a few misc UI issues.
  • We updated freezer prep recipes to not display nutritional data.
  • We fixed the watermark PTE logo when printing recipes.
  • When sharing the shopping list from the app, the URL will now remember the original shared date range.

We will continue to notify you of any updates and new features on our blog and via email. In the meantime, if you have any questions, you can always contact our support team.
