Paprika has just released a big update to their app, v2.2.0 now, I believe, that includes an english language engine in the browser that will analyze and d/l a recipe from any site, not just ones that have added by the company. Now that’s a game changer, huh?
Look, I understand the reluctance to pay $20 for an app with no trial period, I would not likely do that either. Oh yeah, and pay again for the iPad and iPhone apps, too. I've had this app a long time and never even used it. I don’t even remember how I got it; I think it might’ve been in a software bundle that I bought for other software. Maybe it was just real cheap and I wanted to try it. I was using MacGourmet Deluxe at the time and inertia kept me using it. Over time I became frustrated with MacGourmet and remembered Paprika in my Application folder and gave it a try. After a couple of weeks with Paprika I imported all my MacGourmet recipes and have been using Paprika ever since. I bought the iPad version since I'm often watching TV and roam recipe sites during lulls in the programing. I bought the iPhone version so I can be at the supermarket and check a recipe to see what I need to buy for a meal I want to make. And the automatic syncing makes sure all the app versions have the latest recipes.Yeah, they’re not giving away their apps but I'm hoping they’ve got a solid business plan that’ll keep them in business a long time because I love this app. Not selling yourself too cheaply is a good way to stay in business.
I really wish that they’d release a trial version of Paprika so a lot more people can find out how ridiculously great this program is.
