What is Mela?
Mela is a simple, elegant and modern recipe manager that syncs with iCloud.
SYNC Sync your recipes with iCloud, either privately (default) or by sharing a recipe library with other iCloud users. (Please note: the shared recipe library feature requires iOS 15)
IN-APP BROWSER WITH LIVE PREVIEW 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.
FEEDS Subscribe to your favorite recipe blogs to view all the recipes in Mela's native recipe viewer*.
COOK MODE 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. You can add multiple recipes to the cook mode, easily letting you switch between them.
TIMERS No need to switch to another app for setting up a timer. When in cooking mode, Mela let's you easily create and manage timers.
SCANNER 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.
GROCERIES 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.
CALENDAR Do your meal planning by using Mela's built-in calendar. It's managed by Calendar.app which also has the advantage that you're always able to access it on all your devices.
ORGANIZING Recipes can be organized in categories, marked as “Favorite” or as “Want to Cook”.
PRINTING Of course, Mela supports printing in case there’s a recipe you want to have on paper or save as PDF.
Please note: If iCloud Sync is enabled (default), Mela will sync these items with iCloud:
- Browser bookmarks
- Subscription list (feeds) Not synced:
- 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.
