Program Updates

The development team is working hard to make updates and add new features to both the desktop and mobile app versions of Plan to Eat!

Desktop Version

  • We addressed an issue where the correct serving size wouldn’t always display on planned recipes after adjusting the serving size.
  • We resolved an issue with ingredient scaling when viewing the original serving size of Friend’s recipes.
  • Our new browser extension was released on Firefox!

Mobile App

Turn on app auto-updates or update in App Store/Google Play to get the most recent version of the Plan to Eat app! This month we released app versions 3.2.2 – 3.2.4

  • We added a new carousel display option on the Recipe Book
  • We made a few small visual changes on the shopping list.
  • We moved the shopping list date range into the search bar so there is more room for your list.
  • We fixed a bug that was affecting the appearance of Nutritional Facts.
  • We updated the big blue bottom button so it looks more button-y!
  • We renamed the “Challenge” menus to “PTE Menus”.
  • We updated the recipe book scroller so the minimize UI does not affect the scroller inertia.
  • We updated the scroller so there is not a visual jump when loading pages with a saved scroll position.

Highlighted Reviews

“10 stars if it was an option. I’ve been meal planning for a long time. Have used everything from a notebook and binder to a special recipe reader before smartphones were a thing. But this app does it all. I love the cloud-based platform. It lets me work from my computer, which I prefer for the planning part. Then transitions flawlessly to my phone and my tablet to go shopping or cook in the kitchen. I tell everyone about it!”

It’s quick and easy to save and share recipes. And I now have my Plan to Eat recipe file tucked away in my phone! It goes everywhere I go! “
