I am pleased to announce that Paprika 3.0 has been finally released for iOS and macOS! We’ve added a ton of new features to this version, here’s a look at what’s new:

Paprika 3 for iOS


  • We have implemented support for the new iPhone X screen, as well as support for iOS 11.
  • The iOS app is now universal, so you no longer need to purchase the iPhone and iPad versions separately.
  • We have added multitasking support to the iPad version so you can use Paprika with Slide Over and Split View.


  • We have added a Share extension so you can directly save recipes from Safari.


  • We’ve added a beautiful new recipes grid view that highlights your recipe photos.
  • You can now add multiple, full-sized photos to each recipe.
  • Photos can be embedded in directions and tapped to zoom to full size.
  • You can insert links to other recipes or websites from within your ingredients and directions.
  • You can format recipes with bold and italics using a Markdown-like syntax.
  • You can now convert ingredient measurements between US standard and metric systems.
  • Search has been expanded to support searching in multiple categories, and searching in directions and notes.
  • Pinned recipes are now synced between devices.
  • Deleted recipes are now moved to the trash first, so you can recover accidentally deleted recipes.

Grocery List

  • You can now create multiple grocery lists and add different items to each list.
  • You can now create custom grocery aisles, and arrange them in your preferred order.
  • When you assign an ingredient to an aisle, it will remember that assignment and reuse it in the future.
  • You can now move ingredients back and forth between the pantry and grocery list.
  • The grocery list has been overhauled and is better at consolidating ingredients.


  • You can now add custom items to the pantry.
  • You can now record quantities, purchase dates, and expiration dates for each pantry item.

Meal Planner

  • We have added a new view into the meal planner that shows the current day’s meals.
  • You can now add custom meal types to the meal planner, and rename or reorder the existing ones.
  • You can now drag and drop recipes directly onto the meal planner. (iPad only)
  • We have added a new Today extension that shows the current day’s meals.
  • You can now create menus that span multiple days or even weeks.
  • You can now predefine meal types for each menu item. This makes it easy to create a weekly meal plan and reuse it.

Both the iOS and macOS versions of Paprika 3.0 are new apps available for purchase and will replace the existing versions. To transfer your data from the old app to the new, you can use Paprika Cloud Sync or export your recipes to a .paprikarecipes file and import them into the new app.

In celebration of our launch, we are putting all of our apps on sale until the end of November. You can purchase the new iOS and macOS apps from the App Store on your device or through the links below.

We have been working on the new version of Paprika for over a year, and at this point we are in the final stages of development for both the iOS and macOS versions. We expect to be able to release both versions simultaneously later this fall, and then we will work on getting the Android and Windows versions upgraded as well.

(Since we have four different apps to upgrade it will take us some time to get through them all, but we are making progress every day and will continue working until all four versions are fully feature complete.)

This version is the biggest update we have ever done, and we are really excited about all the new features. I will post a preview of the changes once we are a little bit closer to release.

Thanks everyone for your support and patience!

We’ve been getting more questions about the development status of Paprika so I figured I would share a status update here. We’re currently hard at work on a brand new version of Paprika, version 3.0, containing many of the top-requested features that people have been asking for. Things like:

  • Support for rich-text formatting in recipe ingredients and directions.
  • The ability to link related recipes together.
  • Expanding each recipe to support multiple, large-sized photos, that can also be embedded in the directions.
  • Converting ingredient measurements between US standard and metric systems.
  • Syncing pinned recipes across devices.
  • Support for recovering accidentally deleted recipes from the trash.
  • More advanced recipe search capabilities, including the ability to search in multiple categories.
  • An overhauled grocery list with customizable and re-orderable grocery list aisles.
  • Support for custom pantry entries, quantity tracking, and expiration dates.
  • The ability to create and re-use meal plans that span across weeks.

This new version has been under development for a while. We’re not sure yet when it will be ready to be released but we are currently making good progress. :)

Hi folks. I am pleased to announce a major upgrade to Paprika’s web browser that we have been working on for quite some time. To make it easier to save recipes from your favorite sites, we have built a natural language processing engine into Paprika that can automatically recognize any recipe written in plain English on any website.

This means that you no longer have to request support for specific sites to be added to Paprika, nor will you need to resort to Paprika’s clipboard tools to copy and paste the recipe from the browser when you encounter an unsupported site. Just press Save Recipe and Paprika will figure out the rest.

This upgrade applies to all versions of Paprika’s built-in web browser, our Safari extension on iOS, and our bookmarklet for your regular web browser. Update to the latest version of Paprika on all of your devices to take advantage of these new changes.

(Note that the bookmarklet has automatically been upgraded, so if you’ve already installed the bookmarklet in your web browser, you don’t have to do anything else.)
