Possible Issue with ReciFoto for iPad Camera

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 support@recifoto.com


Adding Links to Your Website or Blog When You Add a Recipe

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.

You Go, iPad Users!

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

Community/church/temple cookbooks

Paste ups (recipes clipped from newspapers and glued to 3 x 5 cards)

Pages ripped from magazines

Internet screenshots

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!
