Questions & Answers

Q: What is an APK File?

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 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 can guarantee APK 100% safe?

A: Whenever someone wants to download an APK file from, 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.

User's Reivew

5 ★Fantastic app, I can feel and see all the detail and attention put into this cookbook. One of the best apps I've ever used. Worth every dollar!
5 ★Loving this app. So easy to store recipes imported from both website and also out of magazines/recipe books using OCR technology. Love that can create own Tags for recipe categories also. Was happy to pay for this app as really quite good. Couple of minor glitches - sometimes doesn't read fractions correctly, but easily editable. Also sometimes the photos that appear next to the recipe title are not the image for the recipe - seems to sometimes show photo from other recipes. Great app overall.
5 ★The BEST app for recipe management and menu planning I've ever seen - blew my socks off with how intuitive and well designed it is. My baker husband uses a different app on his iPhone, and we compare side by side: CookBook is always the superior app. Also, when I sent a tech support question, their team got right back to me (embarrassingly, it was MY error with a setting on my phone... 😖) This is now my 'forever' recipe app, so to the developers: Thank You, and please keep innovating.
4 ★I love this app. Very intuitive design, and looks so organized! You can also search by keywords, tags you put on recipes, and favourites. There is also the ability to input the ingredients you have on hand and the recipes shown will be matched based on how many of your ingredients they contain. The reason this isn't a 5 star review is that I'm waiting on a feature that would allow the results to be sorted in order of those with the fewest additional ingredients that are not in my list.
5 ★Literally what I was looking for. For the asking price it does what I needed. Finally, I can convert, store and share my text and excel file recipes. 👍
5 ★I cannot recommend the app highly enough. Due to my wife's recent ill health I've had to take over meal duties in our household. I've tried a number of this style of app and found this one to be the best suited to the task in my opinion. With the ease of recipe import and especially the meal planning, whether it be a recipe or free hand note, I find this app indispensable in the day to day management of meals for our household. I would also like to add that their customer support has been very response and helpful.
5 ★Incredible app with incredible attention to detail! Does everything you could think of and more, beautifully designed, and very functional. Example: you plan a meal, using a recipe that's been input with quantities for 2 servings, and scale the servings to 6. When you open the recipe from the meal planner, it opens already scaled to 6 servings! This saves countless mistakes and lots of time. Or, you can start multiple timers, including for the same step and same timer (critical if you're working in batches!). You can convert units and temperatures inline. And so on. Overall so far every time I thought I might need a feature, it's already been built in. And because it's so intuitive and well designed it's also made cooking much faster, especially in a small kitchen. There's a few things that could be tweaked to be helpful, like having the ability to reschedule a recipe in the meal planner without having to remove and then re-add it to the desired day, having the grocery list update if you make edits to the meal plan, being able to use the OCR or pdf page input function outside of the 'create new recipe' dialogue (eg if you want to scan info or a photo off a pdf page after creating the recipe) etc. But these would just be improvements to an already amazing app.
3 ★Good, but meal planner is frustrating; you can't change meal days. Once you've set a meal for lunch on Tuesday and you want to move it to Wednesday, you have to delete Tuesdays meal, goto Wednesday and add it again. If the meal has three parts (rice, fish fingers, veg) that's three items to delete and add again. The devs need to add a "change day" button. I'd like to see some action on this please, it's been several weeks now. Support just say they'll pass this on. Public roadmap please
5 ★This app is a pleasure to use! Downloads most recipes easily and places items correctly. It's well thought out for a person who likes to cook and has a lot of recipes.
4 ★This is a great app and the UI looks incredible. I wish the web scraper worked as well as it did for some competitors. This requires a lot of manual action most of the time. There are in my opinion also many small improvements to be made that would greatly improve user experience. Like conversion rounding, being able to paste a recipe image from clipboard, easier tag editing, quickly adding multiple recipes to a tag, better automatic amount detection (1 is added unnecessarily a lot when the amount is empty). It also slightly pains me that it's the only square app icon left on my homescreen.
5 ★This app has totally simplified my cooking life. I had recipes everywhere and trying to plan meals and make shopping lists or even decide what to eat was a nightmare. I enjoy cooking again!
5 ★Probably the best app i have ever bought. Almost perfect! A small issue with OCR scanning some fractions and some decimal rounding issues but not a real problem. Also searching for a way to have a second cookbook as shared family recipes... happy to pay for a second book... OR .. would like to share my recipes to other family members... they are planning to buy CB too. This app is almost everything i hoped for. Absolutely love it
