BigNight: Dinner Party Planner
Description
Plan and organize your next dinner party or holiday meal. Set your menu, import recipes, create shopping lists, add reminders. On the big day, everything is organized and at your fingertips. BigNight supports iPhone and iPad, and syncs between devices, so everyone is always up-to-date. ‣ Create your menu: Decide what you'll serve, organized by course. Or, browse our featured menus for great dinner party ideas. ‣ Select recipes: Import recipes from your favorite web sites using the built-in browser, recipes you've pinned on Pinterest or saved to your Evernote account, or from Safari with the BigNight share extension. ‣ Create shopping lists: Add items to an unlimited number of shopping lists, organized by store; check off each item as you get it. ‣ Add reminders: Set reminders for each big task, whether it's a make-ahead item days in advance or a last-minute garnish. You'll receive a notification for each reminder, and you can acknowledge or snooze a reminder right from your lock-screen. ‣ Sync: Keep everyone up to date, automatically. Check an item off a shopping list, or mark a task complete, and everyone is updated instantly. ‣ Share: Publish your menu as a beautifully-designed web page and share with your guests, or to your friends on Twitter, Facebook and more. Other BigNight users can import your menu and recipes with a single tap. ‣ Universal App: iPhone & iPad support included in single purchase.
No event is complete without this menu tool!

I use this app for every holiday, birthday, and get together. It saves me from making multiple lists and it’s always accessible. A must have for anyone who loves planning events with food.
It’s a fine app

It was surprising to me that I couldn’t add my own recipes to the app. It is limited to searching and adding recipes from the internet. I probably wouldn’t of paid for app if there was a free trial version that I could have tried
Thinks like I do!

I love this app! It thinks like I do. Two improvements that I would to see is a consolidated shopping list. If I could make one BIG suggestion, I would request a notes field where I could put the vessel that it will be served in or a serving dish field. Then this app would be perfect. By the way, it does a great job of finding appropriate photos of your dish!

Thank you for the update! I didn’t know how useful the menu function would be until I started coordinating dishes with out-of-town family members. -Tynishia
Good concept, many glitches

It froze and then I had to reinstall and it completely erased my menus :(
It’s okay

I wish there was more integration with an app like paprika or pepperplate. All of my recipes are stored in those. To use this app I’ve had to put all my recipes into Evernote and then into this app. It’s not the best because the app does not pull the picture of the recipient and there does not appear to be a way to add it. I do like the list aggregator and the reminders list a lot. I just wish I could pull recipes from anywhere on the web not just the websites that are listed
Good menu planner

Really enjoy this menu planning app! Love that you can link recipes to the menu so that everything is right in one place. We have family Sunday dinners twice a month and I have used this app to create the menus for the entire year! The only thing that I wish it had is a note section for each menu i plan as i like to make notes.
Too much work

Maybe ok for cook who needs preloaded or linked recipes, but for anyone wanting to use their own recipes or anything not connected with this app it is way more trouble than it's worth. You have to import ingredients, checklists reminders etc. easier on a simple to-do list. Save your money. Not worth this absurdly high charge for a rudimentary app.
Works well

Keeps me clear on menu and recipes. Like the links especially to Evernote. Wish there was a Mac app and wish it linked to Cooks Illustrated.
Excellent

Using for the first time for a dinner party this Saturday. I've been looking for an App like this for years, I don't know how it eluded me. Satisfyingly organized. It would be good to have more links to other recipe sites - New York Times Cooking would be a fantastic addition. Thanks
Great app for planning thanksgiving!

I bought this app having high hopes for being able to plan the Thanksgiving menu for our family this year. I'm happy to say that this app definitely lived up to it. I love the recipe box and being able to have it auto save the recipes from the site I pulled the recipe from. The only feature I wish it had was being able to directly load a URL instead of having to search it through Google. For example, one app I use detects when you first open it if you have a URL copied to your clipboard and asks if you want to auto load the URL so you can save the recipe without having to search for it. Otherwise, really looking forward to using it more and I LOVE the interface.
