Description

Introducing The Budget Bytes App, from cookbook author and winner of Saveur's Best How-To Food Blog in 2016, Beth Moncel. Beth has built a loyal following of millions of fans by delivering delicious recipes designed for small budgets on her blog www.budgetbytes.com. Now, she's put 500 of her most popular recipes into the Budget Bytes App, complete with step-by-step photography and voice guidance from Beth herself. She'll personally walk you through every recipe, right in your kitchen. Cooking on a budget shouldn't mean canned beans and ramen noodles night after night. Welcome to the world of delicious recipes designed for small budgets. Beth adds, “I’ve partnered with the tech-savvy team at SideChef to bring you an easy to use app packed with more features than I could have imagined. It’s like an interactive and customizable cookbook with my voice coaching you through each recipe! Cool, right?? We’ve pre-loaded the app with the 500 best recipes from years past and also loaded 300 credits into your account to jump start your access to additional new recipes in the marketplace. All new recipes from the blog will be uploaded into the marketplace where you can choose which recipes you want to load into your app. You can continue to earn free credits by simply visiting marketplace once per day, commenting on recipes, or uploading a photo of your creation. Why am I so excited about this app? Well, let me just list a few of the super cool things it can do… -Deliver the recipes you love faster and easier without waiting for a website (or annoying ads) to load. Plus, save recipes to personal “cookbooks” to access your favorites even faster. -Filter recipes by price to get recipes that are the best fit for your budget. -Adjustable serving sizes let you cook the amount that you want and reduce food waste. -Access how-to technique videos right in the instructions so you can cook with extra confidence. -Cook with me, in real time! We wanted to make this app extra personal, so you’ll have my voice giving you step-by-step instructions as you cook.”

  • Not happy

    Plagued by ads from Facebook and others, I purchased the app. The recipes I found online are not available on the app. It’s so disappointing.

    So the token system is lame, but I look at the web page A LOT and get whatever recipes that aren’t on this app from there, no big whoop. The real thing that makes me give this one star is there is effectively no ‘back’ button. The ‘x’ or the ‘<‘ symbols in the upper left must be there for decoration because they sure as heck don’t work. Wanna add a recipe to your cookbook? Well now the app lives in the cookbook cuz there’s no going back to the actual recipe. For a paid app this is unacceptable.2
  • Good idea, poor execution

    I like the recipes but hate the forced upgrades and junk like marketplace credits. Please make the app simpler and stop forcing unnecessary and unwanted functions on people who just want the access to delicious recipes! Edited to add: first you have to pay to download the app, then you have to pay more for all the recipes that you can view for free online. Don’t waste your time with this app, just use the website.
  • Frustrating

    I find it really frustrating to find a great recipe on the blog and not be able to find it because it isn’t available on the app. I purchased this first thing because of the great blog but am really disappointed they have since added recipes that need to be paid for. Even with free credits. That was added after I purchased the app. I’ll stick with the blog on my desktop.
  • Disrespects fans of the blog

    As an app developer, it is a deeply negative experience to have found out that I need to pay for additional recipes after already paying $3. The app developers and the author were not honest and did not do enough user testing with the audience of the blog and have only alienated their core audience. The only way to rectify this is to make it free and ad supported, and have the option of purchasing a premium version with all extra recipes included. You are getting valuable feedback here - don't be arrogant and not listen to your fans here, or else your brand is gonna be sullied.

    I use it almost daily! I love the variety & simplicity of these recipes. Almost everyone single one of them is a winner. The app is easy & reliable.

    Some of the recipes are missing information from the website or the recipe has incorrect quantities. Otherwise it’s awesome.
