The install went sort of okay. You can put the files for the
program where ever you want them. Then it said that my video card was set to 256
colors and that it needed a higher resolution to work. I could call them for
instructions on how to fix this. My resolution was not set to 256 colors. The
program then opened and I faced the registration hurtle.
To use this trial version you have to register it. You have to give them your
name, address, phone number etc. Even if you reside outside of the States you
are required to enter in 2 letter state code.
After all of this I then attempted to try to import 3 recipes in MealMaster
format. The program hung. I had to re-install.
I then decided to stay away from the import function and look at the rest of the
program. First of all lets get one thing straight. I own and have used about
every type of cooking software that has been made. From MealMaster to Now You're
Cooking! and Master Cook. And others too obscure to mention. Cook'n seems to
have all of the features that are the best of all of them. Including the
nutrition and shopping features.
The ease of entering new recipes is good too. It uses the popular auto-complete
You can also import reipes in MealMaster and MasterCook format.
The reality though is that it looks like to get everything that Cook'n can do,
you will have to order one of their cd's. Which is not necessarily a bad thing
since they have a lot to offer to help with your cooking experience.
