Quickly save a recipe while browsing: If Mela detects a recipe on the currently viewed page, it will be displayed in Mela’s native recipe viewer*, on the same screen on the iPad and a swipe-left away on the iPhone. Want to add or view a recipe from outside of Mela? No problem, just use Mela’s sharing extension.
Subscribe to your favorite recipe blogs to view all the recipes in Mela’s native recipe viewer*.
Scan a recipe from a book: With the help of text recognition, you can just add it to your personal collection and view it in Mela’s native recipe viewer, as any other recipe.
Recipes can be organized in categories, marked as “Favorite” or as “Want to Cook”.
The cook mode makes it easy to follow all steps while cooking, displayed using a larger font to make sure everything stays readable even when you’re not right in front of your device.
Mela uses the Reminders.app to manage your grocery list. This has the advantage that you’re always able to access your grocery list on all your devices even if Mela is not installed on a specific device.
Of course, Mela supports printing in case there’s a recipe you want to have on paper or save as PDF.
If enabled (default), Mela will sync these items with iCloud:
– Browser bookmarks
– Subscription list (feeds)
– Feed recipe entries
– Browser history
Groceries are always stored in Reminders.app
* Extracting recipes only works for websites that support this, most of them do.
– Wrongly restoring to saved values while editing a recipe
– Wrong text block order when scanning
