This is the most user friendly recipe software I've tried. I had to buy it after entering the first recipe in the demo version. It has everything I was looking. I great deal for the price!
Only thing "good" is that it seems to run in Vista (many of the other recipe programs I tried didt't
I got the full program up and running but I must say I am very disappointed with it. I find it's very user un-friendly, to the point of annoyance. For example, every time you open the program you have to re-open a "book" just to get started. While a relatively minor annoyance I couldn't find a way to set a default "book" especially since I only need one book to begin with.
Worse and more annoying is that the program doesn't offer any built in categories or sub-categories (such as main dishes, deserts, vegetables, etc.) that I have seen on all the other programs of this type. Again without some basic default categories you have to type everything in just just to get started again taking the kind of time I'd hope a recipe program would eliminate or at least minimize.
The interface that does exist (for ingredients) is cumbersome and again not intuitive. For example, I tried to enter a recipe that called for 1 stick of butter but there was no way to amend ingredients measures to add a "stick" as a unit. I the I spent 20 minutes trying to figure it out and just gave up.
The program is a real pain to use and I want my money back. This is program I'll never use (already deleted it) and there's no way to really test it out the because the "trial" version locks all but one category until you buy the license. Without a full version trial period there's no way to know how cumbersome the program is. Please, refund my money and I'll go buy some index cards and save my aggravation for politics.
It's very simple to use, and does everything I need it to do, including letting me copy recipes to my iPod. Jym is very helpful when I have questions to ask about it.
none so far
My 5 year old computer crashed and I bought a new one with Windows Vista operating system. Half of my software did not work with Vista, including my recipe organizer.
I tried over 20 recipe programs and none of them work with Vista. I even paid $80.00 for a program called Cook'n that their website claimed it worked with Vista and I talked to two of their tech guys that said Cook'n would work with Windows Vista but it didn't.
My recipe Books 4.2 was the only recipe program that works with Windows Vista. It's easy to use and much better then my old program. And the price was right at $10.00. After all the frustration of trying to find a recipe program that actually worked with Vista I can not say anything bad about My Recipe Books 4.2.
This is not a bad comment about My Recipe Book 4.2. It's a tip if you have a computer with widows Vista. Which is Windows Vista's fault.
After you download the trial version and buy the software you will get an email with an activation code. If you have Windows Vista follow the instructions below or you will get an error message.
Click the start menu.
Right click over My Recipe Book icon.
Then click on Run as administrator.
Then enter your name, email address & software code.
I'm so happy that I found this program and can not stress the pain I went though trying to find a recipe program that works with Windows Vista.
