Hi ReciFoto users!
I downloaded iOS9 this morning and everything seems to be working ok with ReciFoto and iOS9. Let us know if you have any issues at all.
Also, I wanted to let you know that we are working on an update to ReciFoto. ReciFoto will become a “universal” app, so you can download the same version for your iPhone or iPod and iPad! We’ll also fix a couple of bugs that we’ve come across, too.
Let us know if there is anything that you would like to see in an updated version of the app.
Sorry for the lack of posting here. Recifoto has reached new milestones, including over 13,000 registered users and 16,000 recipes. Do you have any favorite ReciFoto stories?
The new Android version of ReciFoto has an issue with Facebook registration. When you register with Facebook, the username appears as “null.”
We are working on a solution.
If this doesn’t convince you to download this free app, what will?
We’ve put off the Android update for far too long, but it is finally in the works. I’m not sure when it will be available, but am hoping it will be in the next week to ten days. It will have all of the updates that the iOS version has.
We’ve heard from two users today that the app is crashing when they try to use the camera to add a recipe. At least one of the users was using an iPad mini, and we’re not sure what device the other user has. We are investigating the cause, however it may be because of the latest update to iOS.
If you are experiencing the same problem, please let us know. It would be helpful if you include the type of iPad you have and the version of the operating system you are using. Send us an e mail at email@example.com
With the new iPhone version of ReciFoto, and soon on the iPad version, there is a new way to link to your blog or website. When you enter a new recipe, you’ll see a box below where you enter the title. If you add the URL to which you want to link, after you hit submit and go back to the Public feed – you may have to reload by pulling down on the top image and releasing – you’ll see that the title is hyperlink blue. Tap on the title, then on Go to Website in the pop up box.
If the link does not work, it is because it is too long, in which case shorten by just using the domain instead of the page, or use Bitly or Google shortlinks to shorten it. You can edit this on the fifth tab by tapping the red Recipe tile, then the recipe name from the drop down list, then tap the title bar.
You can still just put a hyperlink in the title bar, but the new system creates a cleaner, more elegant result! If you have any questions, contact Support@ReciFoto.com.
I might be wrong, but it seems to me that the iPad users of ReciFoto post a lot of recipes that they screenshot from the internet, either from FaceBook or whatever favorite food/recipes sites they have. I think this is really cool. We started ReciFoto because it was dedicated to recipes, and would make it easier for you to find and store the recipes you love, no matter what the source.
In no particular order, here are my observations of the top sources for recipes on ReciFoto:
Treasured family recipes that are either handwritten or typed
Paste ups (recipes clipped from newspapers and glued to 3 x 5 cards)
Pages ripped from magazines
Whether you are posting one recipe, 600 recipes, or just browsing others, we’re glad that you are taking advantage of what the app has to offer. The community grows everyday, as does the number of recipes posted. The search function gets a good workout as well. Hopefully more users will get the In App Purchase for 99 cents, which allows them to collect recipes from the Public recipe scroll and their searches. It’s not enough to keep the lights on here, but it helps!
