A solid recipe management app - I use it nearly every day. Syncing is a little flakey now and again but the sheer power of the app makes up for it.

The program allows to free some space on the bookshelves, providing you with all needed information: pictures, ingredients, step-by-step instructions. It is extremely handy, with only one disadvantage – the cost, though it is good enough to pay for. I enjoyed it.
