Functional for its purpose, but Adware which verges on Malware. Check your firewall. Simply launching the program when connected to the internet will immediately connect the user to close on 100 (yes ONE HUNDRED) monetising advertising, tagging and tracking servers. A sample of the first 15: exelator.com scanscout.com dynamicyield.com mathtag.com infolinks.com mediavoice.com viglink.com saymedia.com hotjar.com content.ad crwdcntrl.net supert.ag kargo.com eyeviewads.com gwallet.com I suggest anyone considering using this software install LittleSnitch, HandsOff, or something similar (or have some who knows what they are doing do it for you), and block those puppies. I paid for a product. To database my recipes. I did not pay for Mariner Software to be renting me out as a live product to four score and more advertisers, taggers and trackers every time I go online. Simply disgusting Mariner Software.

Pretty much what you expect from Mariner - average but workable software. It does the job but pretty artlessly. Weird UI. Why does text show up in two windows when you enter it? Why is text teeny-tiny for editing with no choices for larger text entry? Why the repeated categories? It does the job, which is what expected. It doesn't do it with finesse, which I also expected.

terrible- would give it zero stars if I could. The company I would also give zero stars. I have been raving about the old version of this product for years until I was forced to "upgrade" due to the old version no longer being supported. Now my shopping lists no longer sync. Customer service is absolutely non existent and tech support no longer responds to calls or emails since they can't figure out the problem. As far as I'm concerned it is theft for them to take money for something that doesn't work. Of course you can't reach anyone at the company to even try to get your money back. I'm so disappointed as this program was like my right hand to me. I was constantly using it and have spent thousands of hours creating the database. I have been promoting this product for years and this is the treatment I get.

I admit to not being an advanced user of MacGourmet. But for my uses it has proven itself to be a handy little app. Options for adding receipes is quite complete, and the process very slick. Changing units and scaling (to create more/less servings) painless also. I've also used exported recipes to share with friends and that has worked as expected. Solid app for my (non-expert) uses.
