Once you've created meals, ingredients are automatically added to the shopping list for that week. If you want to create a list only for those items, just click No to the Shopping List's initial prompt and a list is generated immediately. Choose Yes to add additional items to your list. However, cost and size aren't tracked. In Update Meals, you can view a scrollable list of all recipes or use the standard search tools to locate a particular entry.
Although you can add ingredients, you can't add recipes with the trial version. No Help file is included, but its overall intuitive design makes this a nice choice for any busy user in search of meal planning assistance.
