This is an older app; in fact, it hasn't been updated in almost four years now. With that said it still has a rather solid 3.5 out of five stars from users. No matter how old the app is the recipes don't change over time it’s just the user interface that now feels dated and lacks in features. Customers do appreciate how much content it offers and how easy the recipes are to follow.
