Questions? We Have Answers
Usually when I use the bookmarklet (or Chrome Extension) I am only asked for tags, this time it asked me to select the ingredients. What happened?
We try to automatically read and save the recipe, however sometimes for some sites we are unable to. In these cases you are going to have to do some
selecting (hold the mouse button down and drag) on your own. See the video tutorial for clearer instructions.
In the Safari extension I always have to login, it's such a pain!

Ack, the App crashes as soon as it starts! Have I lost all my recipes?
There have been a few reported cases where the recipe database has gotten corrupted and the app no longer works. First try
restarting the phone, if that doesn't work remove the app and reinstall it from app store:
you will not lose any of your recipes! We apologize for the inconvenience and are actively working on a fix for this issue.
A site that I used to have to manually save the recipe on, now automatically does it for me. Why?
We are getting betting at saving recipes all the time. And you can help, if we see a site that has had to be manually saved
we adjust our saving algorithm (the way we save recipes) to account for that site, so please if you have to manually save the recipe
it helps out everyone who uses RecipeFolder!
