  • Best Investment

    By Dec9905
    What a fantastic app! I have been using it for about 1 1/2 years now and I don’t know how I lived without it! So worth the nominal app fee. Over the first 6-8 months, I slowly added recipes as I made them but I made it last winter’s project to get them all added...1900+ in total. This app saves time - no lost time trying to decide what is for dinner tonight and quick assembly of your shopping list. I love being able to access from anywhere: my phone on the go, my iPad in the house, my laptop for recipe entry. My family can even check what is for dinner and add meals they have been craving. There are very few issues, if any, but on the rare occasion an external website changes and recipes can no longer be imported properly, support is quick to respond to the report and resolve. The only thing I would like to see in the app is the ability to save a favorite meal (main and side combo). There is a template to save a weeks worth of meals but I’d like to be able to drill down a bit further.
  • Updated review: Still a staple in my kitchen

    By Ulkesh
    Thanks to the developer for keeping this app updated, and thanks for all the hard work poured into the app. Mealboard is a regular fixture in my kitchen, used for everything from pantry management to recipe scaling to shopping list creation to, yes, meal planning. Thanks, again!

    Once I learned how to use the import feature I was unstoppable. As I await the birth of our daughter, I needed something to help end the “what should we have for dinner?” cycle. This app is the solution! Now I know what the plan is when I get home from work, my wife doesn’t have to remember to take out freezer items because the app reminds us both, and it produces a weekly grocery list making shopping a breeze. Thank you, thank you!
  • Newbie but a fan!!

    By MGB89138
    Saves time and super easy to import recipes!! Shopping list misses a few things and the aggregation doesn’t always catch everything, but really enjoying the app!!
  • Worth the $4

    By Yjjun
    I’ve never paid for an app or rated one, but this is totally worth it. I used to use a spreadsheet for meal planning and a to-do app to organize my my grocery list by aisle. I figured there had to be something more efficient and I am so happy I searched and found this app. There’s a bit of a learning curve and it takes a while to set this up with your grocery store aisles and recipes, but once you do it’s very quick to plan your meals and efficiently shop. My only suggestion would be to have a desktop version that syncs to the app so that I can plan meals on the computer but then automatically have my shopping list on my phone. Also, I moved and my new Publix has different aisles which was a pain to switch, but again totally worth it now that’s I set it up to match the new store. Great vision with this app, it is very well thought out and makes meal planning and grocery shopping a breeze. The only feature I don’t use is the inventory feature. I think it would be way too tedious to keep track of.
  • No prices

    By AmandaHollenbeck
    I only downloaded this app because I wanted the convenience of not only aggregated shopping list but auto pricing in which this app does not have available. I can look up recipes and add them to my Walmart app to see a total. I was hoping this app would automatically tell me the prices not force me to manually input each price for each grocery item. Too much work. I was also disappointed in the amount of recipes available without me having to import more. A whopping 18 and only 3 were vegetarian. I specially need vegan and gluten free so all my recipes I had to search for and import. By the end of this experience, I did everything I am already doing before the use of this app... looking up recipes, importing them, looking up prices per item, inputting them. Took hours of time that shouldn’t have been necessary. This app was useless to me.
  • Love it!

    By JJulesm
    It takes time to load recipes but it’s so easy to do. Once they are all on there planning weekly meals will take no time at all. Love that the meals load into my calendar and that the recipes are easily accessible when it’s time to cook dinner.
  • Now I’m “Super Mom”

    By MadameMuse
    In the month I’ve been using Meal Board I’ve gone from serving the same 8 recipes over and over to at least 5 new recipes every week. I’ve stopped making more than 1 trip to the grocery a week. Dinner isn’t late anymore. No more impulse trips out to eat. The best part is my husband said “Wow, you’ve really turned into Super Mom!” 🤩! Only thing I would like is an option to print out your recipes. I’d like to have nice formatted recipe card to cook from.
  • Overly complicated

    By xxxchadwickxxx
    I’ve tried to make this app work for me multiple times now, and the end result is that it always ends up deleted. While the concept is solid, the app itself is overly complicated, clunky, and extraordinarily time consuming. In the amount of time it took to enter one recipe, the ingredients, the ingredients I needed, the ingredients I had on hand...I could have saved twenty minutes of my life and performed the same task with pen and paper.
  • Complete Grocery/Pantry App

    By mmbkaajn
    I have been looking for an app you can track the grocery items you have with expiration dates & a shopping list with prices. This app checks all the boxes. It adds the items you buy to the pantry. Plus you can easily add recipes & move missing ingredients to the shopping list.
