I have been struggling. I want a place where I can load my recipes from my computer to a website that also has an app for my iPhone that will sync my recipes so I can easily pull them on my iPhone. Anyone have any suggestions? I've been using BigOven but you have to enter each measurement into it and have screwed them up quite a few times!!

I don't know of a specific program for that but Carbonite is on online computer backup service ($50 a year or something) that updates their servers with all file changes as you make them. They have a free app where you can access all of your documents on you phone (including those recipes you'd have saved) as well as a website so you can do the same from any computer. Not to mention your computer could catch on fire and you'd still have all of your data safe icon_smile.gif

Another option would be putting all your recipes in a Google Docs document and accessing it with an app like GoDocs on the iPhone. GoDocs will let you edit the Google doc on your phone, and the changes will be reflected on your computer (or anywhere else you acccess the document) since it is in the cloud.

Google Docs is free and GoDocs costs $5.

I don't have any Apple devices but my supervisor does, and we both use this:

It is seriously awesome. I've been using it for a few months now. You can import or format your own, and there is room for comments. I love it!

You can also use Evernote - it's great because you can set up loads of "notebooks" which makes it easy to find things. All searchable and you can save all kinds of docs, pdfs, photos, videos, etc.

Obviously what I like most about Pepperplate is that it's web-based, so if your PC dies all your recipes are out on the cloud.
