    Hi, great app, I was using it years ago, and now I’m using it again. But now when I add ingredients to the recipe, the unit is always the same, it’s not taken the unit that I defined in the selection list, after change.
    How can I do it? I have to change the unit always… Thanks

    Recipes aren’t syncing. Lists are. What can I check? Thanks

  3. Jennifer Rose says:

    I just began using Mighty Grocer. There seems to be a limited number of characters I can enter under directions. Is that correct? The “ok” or “cancel” bar disappears and I am continually loosing my directions. Advice?

    • Alex says:

      Jennifer, The app does not have any limit for directions field. Most likely the problem has something to do with keyboard app installed on your phone. Could you try using stock Android keyboard?

    On the import recipe – even just the option of adding a URL so you could link to an online recipe would seem to be an easy first step?

  5. Magnus says:

    I just wonder if you can add recipes with a computer instead of doing it manually with the phone?
    I think it would be great if you could do that from the My Mighty Grocery site.

    • Alex says:

      Magnus, thanks for your question. Unfortunately editing recipes online is not available in Mighty Grocery. We plan to add this feature going forward. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

    My husband and I just bought this app to coordinate our meal planning and grocery shopping for a special “cleanse” diet we’re trying, and love it so much that we’re planning on using it even when we’re through…However, it seems sort of odd and mildly inconvenient that one can’t choose the normal types of measurements for recipes which are commonly used, such as cups, teaspoons, tablespoons, etc…Is that something you’d consider changing? It would be SO nice to be able to store and use meal recipes directly from the app for shopping *and* cooking :) Thanks so much!

    • Alex says:

      Shelley, thanks so much for your feedback. You can add measurement units under Menu > Settings > Units. But unfortunately, measurements for recipes will not be compatible with Meal Planner. We plan to make things easier going forward.

      • ShelleyB says:

        Thank you SO much for answering! :) … All fixed!!!
        This app is the most useful I’ve found, in any category! I’m still working on the Springpad sync/integration…The recipes seem not to go directly into notebooks, but are added as “notes” *inside* notebooks, making them a bit harder to find and less convenient to change over to checklists…But still in all, I think it’s great!!!

    “import recipe”
    it was mentioned in the forum by Alex, Admin that “import recipe” would be:
    ‘Unfortunately, there is no way to populate Mighty Grocery recipes online yet, but this feature is planned for delivery later this year. Thanks for your interest!’

    What happened? That was 6/26/2011, that was going on 3years.
