I am really glad to introduce the greatest update to Menu Plan yet.
v1.20 introduces a crucial feature: you can now import recipes and ingredients from the web
The most popular recipe websites share their recipes data in a machine readable format.
Menu Plan reads this format and import the content into the app.
Textual ingredient lines are parsed into their components, to match ingredient, quantity, unit of measure, and even comments.
You start by tapping the search button, and searching for a recipe web page:
If you browse to a page with recipe content you’ll see a button:
Tap it and you’ll get to the import page:
Luckily the most popular websites share their recipe info, but when they don’t there’s nothing we can do. However, you’ll get recipe content from most websites.
Absolutely! Menu Plan 1.2 adds a Share Extension that lets you import recipes straight from safari or any other browser.
Yes, when a recipe has a webpage source you’ll see a handy button which will open the web page in Safari.
Well, this is the best part. Recipe are imported with ingredients, so you will be able to generate detailed shopping lists.
Download Menu Plan and start importing recipes from the web, now.
