  • Way too many ads

    By Kellyjwa
    The stupid ads pop up all the time, getting in the way. If not for this feature I’d give the app higher marks....
  • Love it - but sluggish

    By LG2401
    This is the best all-in-one I’ve found. I just wish it wasn’t so sluggish at times!

    By NY Andrew
    Existing issues NEVER addressed. Sent countless emails just to receive a response saying they’re gonna update the app soon. They updated it this time and not a single issue has been fixed. This dev team is horrible and the app has never improved in years. Go elsewhere. UPDATE: No I won’t contact your support again because they do nothing!!! Same issues: if you edit the recipe it DOESN'T SAVE IT!!! Only way to view it is via editing it again to see updated recipe!! Ridiculous!! Also not being able to change privacy from mobile. On and on and on.
  • Very frustrating

    By Hagn-daz
    Takes over 20 mins for a recipe to show up that was imported. Can’t edit web imported recipes (without premium— really?) aborted while I was adding a recipe which was time consuming.
  • I’ve loved BigOven for years, needs minor fixes.

    By TechGent
    Problem with the current version (even after the most recent update) - I cannot attach photos from the mobile app to a recipe I’ve added. I keep getting a “failed to attach photo” error. Tried on multiple recipes with multiple different photos. Always the same error when adding a photo to a recipe on IOS12
  • Pleased

    By LostInItAll
    This app is great. You can build your grocery list, plan lunch, cook dinner, or anything else you need to do all in this one place. It’s very helpful and convenient.
  • Worst recipe app ever

    This has got to be the absolute worst recipe app/website ever. It is not at all user friendly, it takes forever to add your own recipe, “Clipping” function doesn’t work at all, cannot sort my own recipes, and trying to find help for how to use this stupid app is harder than using the app itself. Complete waste of money and time!
  • Love Big Oven

    By Camilesse
    I’m not a cook expert, but with Big Oven, I can find great and easy recipes for any occasion. I love Big Oven!! 💕💕💕
  • Great for working parents

    By hols622
    This app has been not just a help but a necessity with planning family meals. Stepdad (who must be gluten-free and dairy-free) finds dishes and makes a meal plan for the week. Then Mom grocery shops and chefs it up. No more “oh no what’s for dinner” and we then list the meals on the whiteboard so the kids know (and mom doesn’t have to hear “what’s for dinner?”) I was skeptical at first but it’s super great, so convenient, if you try it you’ll see.
  • Never works!

    By Ploumi
    For years I’ve dealt with your glitchy app, only for it to get worse as you simultaneously take away functionality from your desktop site. I’m in tears finally!!!! How can anyone function like this!?! Especially around Thanksgiving! I have to transfer ALLLLLLL my recipes to a reliable service elsewhere. Shame on you. You won’t get another dime from me. Shame on you!!!
