Description

Mela is a simple, elegant and modern recipe manager that syncs with iCloud. SYNC Sync your recipes with iCloud, either privately (default) or by sharing a recipe library with other iCloud users. (Please note: the shared recipe library feature requires iOS 15) IN-APP BROWSER WITH LIVE PREVIEW Quickly save a recipe while browsing: If Mela detects a recipe on the currently viewed page, it will be displayed in Mela's native recipe viewer*, on the same screen on the iPad and a swipe-left away on the iPhone. Want to add or view a recipe from outside of Mela? No problem, just use Mela's sharing extension. FEEDS Subscribe to your favorite recipe blogs to view all the recipes in Mela's native recipe viewer*. COOK MODE The cook mode makes it easy to follow all steps while cooking, displayed using a larger font to make sure everything stays readable even when you're not right in front of your device. You can add multiple recipes to the cook mode, easily letting you switch between them. TIMERS No need to switch to another app for setting up a timer. When in cooking mode, Mela let's you easily create and manage timers. SCANNER Scan a recipe from a book: With the help of text recognition, you can just add it to your personal collection and view it in Mela's native recipe viewer, as any other recipe. GROCERIES Mela uses the Reminders.app to manage your grocery list. This has the advantage that you’re always able to access your grocery list on all your devices even if Mela is not installed on a specific device. CALENDAR Do your meal planning by using Mela's built-in calendar. It's managed by Calendar.app which also has the advantage that you're always able to access it on all your devices. ORGANIZING Recipes can be organized in categories, marked as “Favorite” or as “Want to Cook”. PRINTING Of course, Mela supports printing in case there’s a recipe you want to have on paper or save as PDF. Please note: If iCloud Sync is enabled (default), Mela will sync these items with iCloud: - Recipes - Browser bookmarks - Subscription list (feeds) Not synced: - Feed recipe entries - Browser history Groceries are always stored in Reminders.app * Extracting recipes only works for websites that support this, most of them do.

    This app makes a beautiful and very practical. Designed with iOS first an Feature requests: more nutritional information styling similar to ingredients. The ability to schedule to make a meal with x amount of servings and be able to assign each serving (or multiple servings) to specific days.

    Your use of yellow is FUGLY. Please use something less abusive to the eyes. Or let is choose.
  • Fantastic app! Two suggestions

    I adore this app and had previously used Paprika. This is much better for my calendar integration, allowing me to share meal plans with my family. I do have two suggestions: 1. Improve the grocery list. Try to group similar items whenever possible, which Paprika was able to do much better. Or, consider having an internal grocery list similar to Paprika. This is one area that I believe paprika did much better than this app. It can be kind of a nuisance. I think this is a critical improvement! 2. Long term, consider Apple HealthKit integration. If you plan to eat a meal on your calendar, the calories can be added to dietary intake after the meal is complete. We already have nutrition facts, so this should be straightforward to add. This is less critical than the above suggestion though.

    The best app for organizing digital recipes!!! You can even download your recipes & use that file to share your Mela collection with friends.

    This is the recipe app I’ve been looking for! Including a best-in-class website recipe importer and awesome cook mode features. Too many to list, just try it.
  • Lost most of my recipes

    Have been using the Mac version and adding in lots of recipes, which works great, but is time consuming. I decided to buy the iPad version to use in the kitchen and set up sync over iCloud and now only have 38 recipes left, the rest are just gone. This was hours of work which has just disappeared. I emailed customer support, but like others have said, no reply, just dead space. I really liked the look of this Mela app, but if it looses all my work, no way, I want my money back, just rubbish. Shame the developer cannot even take the time to answer an email to try and fix the issue. Do NOT recommend. Guess I’m going back to Paprika, ugly, but at least it works.
  • limited import functionality; non-existent customer service

    The heart of my recipe collection are the hundreds (if not thousands) of recipes I've collected as MS-Word or PDF files. Mela has no way to import them in batches or individually. I raised the issue with the developer via email twice (no customer service phone number exists) and never heard back.
  • Gorgeous app!!

    This is such a well-made app that makes saving and tagging recipes from different websites a dream! And the interface is beautiful to boot. If the developer ever adds a homescreen widget, I would be as happy as a clam (which I’ll be cooking for dinner tonight thanks to this app)

    I'm amazed it took me so long to find this app. I've been looking for way to consolidate disparate bookmarked recipes, scribbled notes from my mom, and years of printed, stained, and torn recipes in dirty scrapbooks and Mela does it superbly and effortlessly. It's ability to distill recipes into their basic parts and display them elegantly and efficiently is superb. The addition of the RSS reader is the cherry on top. All of my favorite recipe sites show up in the same well organized place and adding a recipe to my collection is a simple press of a button.

    One of the few perfect apps. It makes cooking and managing recipes so much easier and just even more fun. It’s a beautiful app and one of the most useful applications on my phone.
