Doesn't run on my Dual 1.25Gz G4 PPC. When started the program's splash screen shows then the program quits (crashes). Needs more work!

Mr. Paone is correct regarding the Recipe Packs, although the problem is with the recipe files themselves, not the application as he assumed. The problem has been corrected.

There is no web import feature in Recipe Box 1.1. We are not sure what Mr. Paone was doing that led him to the conclusion that there was a problem.

The recipe packs from their website don't install. The web imports idle and don't go anywhere. This application requires more testing.

With all the useful features and user shortcuts, it's like I designed this software myself. You don't have to type every ingredient over and over again in each recipe. Once an ingredient is added in one recipe, all you do is type a few letters of the ingredient in the next recipe and it finishes typing it for you. This is so incredibly useful if you plan to type in all those recipes you've been keeping on scraps of paper. I also love the export/import feature. I share a lot of recipes with my family and now that we all have this program, they don't have to type them into their computer any more!

Does Recipe Box support international measurements?

If not, I suggest adding the feature of being able to edit custom measurement abbreviations and manually convert from english to your own nation's measurements. Maybe it could tap into the OSX's built-in measurements converter in Calculator.app, or the Dashboard widget, Converter.wdgt?
