ChickenPing 1.50

It's now easier than ever to add recipes to ChickenPing. You can import RecipeML, MasterCook MX2 and MXP and Mealmaster files, as well as paste ingredients from a web site. There's also a 'Recipes' link in the top menu with some suggestions to get you started.

Changes in ChickenPing 1.50

  • Added: MealMaster, MasterCook MX2 and MasterCook plain text import.
  • Added: Author and Preparation Time fields to recipes.
  • Changed: Recipes and backups can now be imported from their native formats (xml, mmf, mx2 etc) as well as zip files or multiple zip files or any combination of the two.
  • Fixed: Bug which caused fractions to be parsed incorrectly from RecipeML.
