How to install BigOven: 1 Million+ Recipes and Meal Planner APK on Android phone or tablet?
Download BigOven: 1 Million+ Recipes and Meal Planner APK file from ApkClean, then follow these steps:
Update Phone Settings
Go to your phone Settings page
Tap Security or Applications (varies with device)
Check the Unknown Sources box
Confirm with OK
Go to Downloads
Open Downloads on your device by going to My Files or Files
Tap the APK file you downloaded (com.bigoven.android-v6.0.12.apk)
Tap Install when prompted, the APK file you downloaded will be installed on your device.
A: Just like Windows (PC) systems use an .exe file for installing software, Android does the same. An APK file is the file format used for installing software on the Android operating system.
Q: If I install an APK from this website, will I be able to update the app from the Play Store?
A: Yes, absolutely. The Play Store installs APKs it downloads from Google's servers, and sideloading from a site like ApkClean.net goes through a very similar process, except you're the one performing the downloading and initiating the installation (sideloading). As soon as the Play Store finds a version of the app newer than the one you've sideloaded, it will commence an update.
Q: Why ApkClean.net can guarantee APK 100% safe?
A: Whenever someone wants to download an APK file from ApkClean.net, we'll check the corresponding APK file on Google Play and allow user download it directly (of course, we'll cache it on our server). If the APK file does not exist on Google Play, we'll search it in our cache.
Q: What are Android App permissions?
A: Apps require access to certain systems within your device. When you install an application, you are notified of all of the permissions required to run that application.
Don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.

1 ★Had high hopes for this app, but it was a dismal failure on the very first recipe I tried to add. Tried the clipping option, which failed, and the instructions they gave on how to use it made no sense. So I then added the recipe manually via copy and paste. Apparently, the app doesn't know how to parse fraction amounts properly, as an amount like "1/4 tsp ground cumin" came in as qty 1 of the item "/4 tsp. ground cumin." Then the best part... I tried to edit the recipe from the Android app, only to find there is NO RECIPE EDIT FEATURE!! Seriously, how do you release an app like this without this basic feature. Garbage.
4 ★Does almost everything I want, but I would love to see filters for nutritional profiles, like low calorie, low carb, etc. Search terms sometimes go wonky: Looking for "canned tomatoes" will turn up every kind of tomato under the sun. These are nitpicks, but a major problem is that it will not sync between my laptop and my phone. I've spent the past few hours searching for a new recipe app just for this reason, but I can't seem to find one that does everything that this one does.
2 ★The recipe clipper was not able to scrape Gordon Ramsay's Beef Wellington recipe from his website, which is forgivable. Not so forgivable were the plethora of UI bugs. 1. text in the ingredients text box is deleted when changing orientation 2. a floating toolbar (cut, paste, select all...) that doesn't go away 3. overlapping elements in manual recipie pane (in galaxy s8 +) 4. slow reacting UI Shame, this could really have been a great app.
1 ★Unfortunately, I have to change my review. I am a paying "pro member." I have experienced a number of bugs and UX problems, many of which are app-breaking, and I am reaching my final straw. Phone App: constantly crashes from the most basic of functions, such as editing grocery list and adding meals to the planner or even just scrolling through the calendar planner. Web App: Horribly slow database connection, so that you wait 10 seconds or more between even the most basic of actions (which could easily be cached to my local computer), and archaic error messages EVERY TIME I try to "create grocery list from meal calendar". I am not kidding, it is every time. Today, I am just not allowed to use one of the most essential features of the app. There are plenty of other small bugs as well. The web app used to be better, but obviously they are not treating their software developers properly, because the app is a total mess lately. Its downright infurating, and I am a paying user. If this doesnt shape up, I am leaving this app in the dust, I dont care if I need to re-add all my saved recipes in another app. This is unacceptable.
2 ★I got this for the "use up leftovers" function, but the built in search bar is out of wack. You're forced to choose ingredients from the predicted words and can't choose ingredients that aren't predicted, but the predicted words are so limited that I've never been able to use this function. For example, when I type in "milk" I get the options almond milk, skim milk, evaporated milk, and condensed milk, which means I don't get options like normal cows milk. Made this app utterly unusable for me.
1 ★I had no intention of subscribing. I was just checking tne app out. Then a $2.99 charge showed up. So i went to my Google Play subscriptions & cancelled it. But the $2.99 charge showed up again for August. I went back to my Google Play subscriptions & Big Oven is not there. So i can't unsubscribe again. I called the phone # that was on my bank statement. That was pointless. I tried every prompt possible & each one led me to a voicemail box. It seemed sort of sketchy to me. I just want out. Help
1 ★This app would be great if it actually worked. Riddled with bugs, including not being able to log in or sign up so I have to continue as guest, not being able to type in more than one ingredient under the use up leftovers inspiration category, and not being able to take a single one of my 3 free photos to upload a printed recipe.
1 ★I found the features promising and decided to go ahead and pay for the pro version. I checked features and recipes from websites are bit importing well. Often the app is far too slow (on a usually fast cellphone). I still have a 30 day trial but I am giving up already. Cancelling renewal on the first day of trial, there are other apps that give me all functions I need and work much better.
4 ★Better than Cozi! I'm talking about the free version of both apps here. Why I like big oven better: 1. Big Oven moves crossed off grocery items to the bottom of the list. Cozi leaves them in their original position. 2. Big Oven categorizes grocery items for you.(dairy, produce, poultry, etc.) Cozi requires you to do this. 3.Big Oven adds recipe ingredients go on the main grocery list. Cozi adds recipe ingredients to a separate shopping list for each recipe. (Who shops multiple lists at once?)
5 ★Switched over from AllRecipes to BigOven because AllRecipes had too many ads among other annoyances. I really like BigOven. I use the meal planning and grocery list feature all the time and it's great. I'm not fond of the way recipes from food bloggers are incorporated, but I understand the importance of maintaining copyright and supporting their websites. It's also very easy to add my own recipes. Great job!
1 ★Opted for a Facebook login, but opted NOT to allow the app to have my email address. Unfortunately, this is a requirement and you can't log in without an email address. I'm going to take a hard u-turn on that. I get enough junk mail. I don't need it from these guys or the people they make it available to. No matter what the reason.
5 ★Love this app! I find SO many good recipes on here! Big Oven is the only meal recipe app I need and have on my phone! I've used it for a few years now. Dont be afraid of using a recipe that only has a single review or so. I found my new most fav comfort food on here despite a single 4 star rating. I depend on this app inmensely for finding good & easy dishes on a regular basis.
