There's a time in life when you know you have to decide to leave someone or something. This application hasn't been upgraded since 09/04/2011. The developer has been talking about v3 for more than a year now and has given sneak peaks at the new interface on his Facebook pages again and again, but we are in April 2014 and nothing is happening.

So yesterday I moved on and bought Paprika. After exporting recipes from YummySoup (ysr format) I had no problems importing them in the new software. Paprika is very fast, very easy to interface with the iOS siblings (cloud) and it is updated on a regular basis. I miss the formatting that was available in YummySoup but that's a little issue and maybe will be added one day.

Sorry Ken Humbard, you should have worked faster or do what Mikebenda suggested: sell the app.

Paprika is a great choice and I did the same ditching MacGourmet 6 months ago.

Some devs should improve their communications and Ken Humbard is one of them.

From Ken's FB

Sep-28-2013
"Now that I can finally say that version 3 for OS X is close to release I wanted to start posting teasers!"

8 months later on 27-Apr-2014

"Yes it will be released. I wish I could put a date on the release but writing software doesn't work like that. It's impossible to predict when it's ready for release."

From "close to release" to "impossible to predict." Did Ken bite off more than his programming knowledge allows or does his day job take all of his time?

I used YS 2.4 today and had 5 crashed and the auto-fills no work several times. Sad...

Current version 2.4 (latests since Sep-2011) has even more issues running on 10.9 Mavericks. Most notable is the scroll bar under the thumbnail images has VANISHED. It is now impossible to scroll thorough recipes. And don't try to use it on a dual screen: if you move it so part is on the 2nd screen that part disappears.

For 20 months we have been promised a newer version (on Ken's Facebook) and now the recipe manager app seems dead and no support.

Ah - just discovered the dual screen problem can be fixed by UNCHECKING "Displays have separate Spaces" in the Mission Control System Prefs.

It's a shame that this once great app is basically abandoned by the developer. I found sort of a solution for the missing scroll bar you mention in your post above: you can use the Up and Down arrow keys to move through the thumbnail images.

I really like this application but am disappointed that neither the promised new version nor an update to turn off idisk sharing are available after all this time.

Dear Ken Humbard,

so again now here as a review… it's over 5 months now and you always told that an update and new function will come to YummySoup! - but where are they?

You write you're working on Version 3 - oh that's sounds great but remember if you plan to take money for this update i'll get very angry and i will take all the power of social networks to tell the world how you do your work my friend.

It's not professional to:

NOT respond,
to PROMISE things that didn't come
to answer an two-liner after many weeks

AND to tell every customer NOT the truth…

SO hurry up and do something for your customers and make us happy… if not i will tell you one thing:

I don't give up till the day i get my money back!

Now we are closing in on Sep-2013 so Ken will be 17 months promising version 3. Last update on his Facebook was in April-2013. He appears to be making the Mac versions look more like the iOS version. I'm shopping for a different recipe manager if this proves to be the way the Mac version looks.

YS is a good app that suffers from a slow pace of development. The dev has been promising new features for a long time, but it's been a year since the last update. There's still no proper capability in YS to sync between Macs. I made the mistake of buying the iOS version a year ago on the promise of new features coming soon, and the ability to sync between my Mac, iPad and iPhone, but just like the Mac version, there's been no updates to the iOS app since then. I've finally given up and am making the switch to Paprika, which offers full sync capabilities and frequent updates that add features and fix bugs.

I like this app and use it often, and I've read below where the developer states he is working on a new version, however it would be nice if this version was updated to not check for my (discontinued) iDisk.

There is a long silence on @hungryseacow, but I am glad you are working on a new Mac version... and I hope a iOS version too.

Downloaded the demo, but apparently waited too long before opening it for the first time, so my only choices were register or quit. So I quit, and bought My Recipes instead.

With many other apps the trial begins when you first open the program, not when you first download it. You might want to consider doing that.

Since I can't submit this comment without completing the star ratings, I'm giving low ratings, not because I think the program sucks, but because the fact that I can't demo it sucks.

The trial only starts after you first launch the app.

2.4 has been more stable than 2.3.x and after many weeks of troubleshooting repeated crashing when editing/saving recipes I have a breakthrough. From my 35 years of programming I was say there is a recursion bug in YS. I can open a new database with only default recipes and in 2 changes in the preferences / Smart Measurements get the app to crash repeatedly. Finding this out lead to a solution to many of the crashes I've had.

2.4 still has problems with modified images not displaying, searches not yielding correct matches, images added to the Notes section coming out huge and the developer's temper.
