BEST FOOD APP EVER!!!!!!!!
By Fireball 6000
This app is wonderful!!! Me and my family use it a ton, and LOVE IT! It is great and easy. I am a very picky eater, it is very convent for me. I can costume to make dairy free choices, vegan, vegetarian, Low carb, gluten free, and kid friendly! There is a choice for what type of cuisine, from American to Vietnamese, fusion and many more! Another choice for what dishes you want to eat there is from occasion for date night to BBQ, happy hour, and more!! Also there are videos to see how the food is prepared which is so helpful. If you just want to find appetizers and other meals for breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, snack, sides, and drinks. Tasty has the too!! And if you need a quick meal for tonight you can select the difficulty from 5 ingredients or less, easy, or under 30 minutes. Which is handy. Dish style too!!! From no bake dessert to one pot or pan! Also there are step by step, videos for when you are cooking! There is another addition too, which is new. There are guides to summer foods for an example. One of my favorites is that you can like the recipes and they get save. You can use Facebook or your phone number to get that feature!!

Good app, needs Some improvement
I absolutely adore this app, when I feel like baking something I look around and just go for it! I also just love watching the videos of how to make the food! However, I think the app needs some improvement. I love that they added a section where you can leave tips, that’s extremely useful. But, some recipes are outdated or don’t work, or just don’t taste that good. This is resolved due to the tips but still I think they could update the recipes themselves to help others. Another issue I found is that the links don’t work, at the bottom of the app there are recipe ideas and other posts. In those posts there are links to the recipes, when you click on them they don’t work. It would be cool if you could click on it and the recipe would pop up online or in the app. I also have an idea for tasty, why not let users create there own recipes and have a separate tab to search user recipes? I think that would be cool and people could leave comments on their recipes. I highly recommend this app for any beginner baker/cooker or actually anyone!!
I LOVE TASTY!!!!
This app is amazing!!!! The food and recipe videos are awesome and they really help me and my family when figuring out last minute meal choices. Also, there are many videos in the app of people sharing food that taught them about their culture, family traditions, and what makes them who they are. I think it’s amazing that tasty includes people in their videos who wants to share who they are and what makes them special. Most of the time when I’m on tasty I don’t even have to be looking for something I will just watch all the amazing videos because all of them are so creative and look amazing! Also, on tasty there are different groups of tasty producers for example, tasty Japan, tasty demais, and tasty 101. On tasty 101 there are videos of an amazing producer, Claire showing you the best recipes to different foods. For example, how to cook the best cookies, how to cook the best brownies, how to cook the best pancakes, even how to cook the best eggs!!! There are even recipes you might have never heard of that will blow your mind. I love tasty and you will too!!!!
I love Tasty, but a few things:
I've loved the Tasty app, and I've watched it ever since it was a thing, and when you came out with an app, I immediately downloaded it. I like that you included a step-by-step mode so you can make the recipe. But here are a few things that I don't like:
-it's not very sorted out. I wish it was more organized, like sometimes I can't find a recipe that I want; for example, that is no-bake, and I can't find one. I wish that you could fix that.
-some recipes you can't watch without having to watch the whole video it is in. So sometimes you guys make 4 ways recipes and sometimes I only want to watch one of it. I wish for that to be an option.
-to many vegan recipes. [ THIS IS MY OPINION ] it may be because you've made so many recipes that you are running out of ideas, but I believe you guys are coming out with only vegan or vegetarian recipes. I'd like for it to be more assorted and not just diet plans or re-posts. Thank you for reading!
Great recipes, even for skilled cooks!
Tasty is a great app for those who want to learn how to recreate some of their favorite dishes and snacks. However, it's also a great app for those who are even advanced cooks, home cooks, or even chefs! There are plenty of detailed recipes with helpful videos, which makes them easy to follow and even use as a foundation to experiment with.
REQUEST: The main reason why I didn't give this app a 5-star review is due to the lack of other account linking options. I wish there was a way to create a distinct "Tasty account" as opposed to linking our Facebook accounts. A weekly or monthly email newsletter sent by Tasty with the most popular recipes for that timeframe would be a great incentive to create an account. Some of us don't have or use Facebook, so this makes it hard for many of us to save recipes we like if that's the only account option. If this feature could be added in the next update, I have no problem creating an account and bumping my review up to a 5-star.
Great for normal people
I have issues with many recipe apps because most recipes call for one or two random things that are expensive, difficult to substitute, and/or hard to find. Or they claim to be “easy” or “only 30 minutes”... which may be true for chefs or very practiced cooks, but not for normal people who just want new recipes to try. Tasty actually has doable recipes with things most people have on hand. There are of course more difficult or obscure recipes, but most of them are straightforward and geared toward people who don’t have a crazy amount of experience in the kitchen but also aren’t totally green. I seriously check this app every day hoping for new recipes. 😋 My only complaint is that you can’t organize the recipe books yourself. If you save a recipe, it automatically gets filed in “dinners” or “desserts” or whatever, which can make it a little harder to track down a particular recipe.
Missing pieces to the puzzle
Thisislexi2 had a great review. These recipes lack a lot of essential instructions. For example: chicken spanakopita pie, you Must drain thawed frozen spinach and pat dry between like half a roll of paper towels or else your recipe will be soupy. I know this from experience but someone else may have no clue. Also, the ingredients list is Missing ingredients from the video (tomato, purple onion, Klamata olives) so if you export the list to your grocery list it will be missing essential ingredients. First video I’ve watched on the app and not off to a great start here. To end on a positive note, I enjoy these videos because they make great dishes look quick and easy. I don’t always have the time to watch a 15-30 minute episode on food network, and I Loathe food bloggers that use recipes as a platform to tell the world their life story. That being said, to compensate for short videos you must make up for it in written instructions. Also, congratulations on Finally incorporating hands with darker skin tones in your videos! Spinach and artichoke 4 ways is the first one I’ve seen like that which shined a light on the previous lack of diversity in your videos.
Great app but good be even better
First off I really enjoy this app. You have a real good winner here. I love the many dishes that I can find on it and I most definitely love the instruction videos that come with the meals; watching someone make the food first is a good visual learning curve for people who learn best from this method. However I can't give you five stars because it still clearly needs some more love given to it. There is no way to categorize my many dishes into set type of meals to make them easier to find, examples being dinner meals, lunch meals, chicken, beef, vegetarian, etc. The simple ability to place my recipes in categories would bring me so much more love for this app and give the app itself a lot more finish deserving of that 5 star. Also, it would be a bonus if people could leave comments on meal recipes, allowing others to share their opinion of the meal and maybe even offer helpful suggestions from their own experience. Otherwise, great app!!
Needs better filtering and allow removal of certain dishes like deserts
All you need is a little side menu categorizing dishes and keep what you have currently as the opening screen with the allowance of removing certain dishes (Mexican, pork or chicken, or deserts). If this allowed filtering and had a side menu option 5 stars. You have something big here but it's not there yet. I can't give you even 4 stars just for throwing everything you have in an app. Reddit did that for me. You need to take it a step further and allow a form of cataloging outside of favorites and allow this to be filtered even in a small sense. I hope you get what I'm saying here because when it changes I'll come give this a 5 star. And DEFINITELY allow a comment section, it's unfortunate but you make mistakes in some of your videos with the process of how you cook things and there are more talented people who will help make your app better. It will require constant monitoring but that's the price of success.
Best Recipe's Ever
I don't normally bake or cook anything, but when I first got this app, I browsed through some of their recipes and I felt like making every single recipe. I literally use this app for anything I want to make. Their recipes are so creative and delicious It also easily explains what you need and what your supposed to do. Their videos are also very easy to follow even on some hard recipes. I personally like using the step by step mode which shows each step chronically with a segment of the video that plays repeatedly and a caption of what you are supposed to do. I really like this app because instead of watching those long videos, this app does it in a fast pace which would reduce your time watching. Something that I would like that they add to this app is a section where you can comment on the recipes and give feedback.
