Synchronize My CookBook application and My CookBook Online 66

You can synchronize your devices with My CookBook Online. First you have to register on My CookBook Online : Once your account is activated, you can link your app with your online account.

The basic free account of My CookBook Online has some limitations: If your number of recipes exceeds the limits, synchronization won’t work any more. You will have to upgrade to a Premium account.


Open the menu of the app and click on “Settings”


Click on “My CookBook Online”


Sign in to My CookBook Online


Put your username and your password. End click on “Log in”


Then you should be redirected to the app (in the synchronization section) and the first line should be replaced with “Logged in as yourusername”
If your app if properly linked to your online account, the synchronization should start


You will see the synchronization status of your recipes in the list, on the left of your pictures.


sync-orange Modified
sync-black Deleted on the server

    I love this app and recently upgraded to the paid version but I still cannot access my account online. I do not even get the option in the settings section to log in. My Android device has approximately 80 recipes and I am trying to sync to my iPad mini and iPhone since the android is no longer in use. Am extremely frustrated that I still cannot access my recipes. Please help!

      Hi Amanda, yes you can have 50 recipes on your free online account. Maybe you have more than 50 on your Android device ?

    Hi, The synchronization does not work on my iOS app. I had about 10 recipes in the app. I deleted all of them online and instead uploaded 5 new ones. Nothing happened in the app. I tried disconnecting my account from the app and reconnected. After reconnection ALL recipes were gone. It is showing “synchronization is running…” But even when this is completed – no recipes in the app. I tried “import from digital cookbook” and uploaded the same file with the 5 recipes. They are successfully shown online. In the app still nothing.

    What’s going wrong?

    sorry for my bad English 🙂
    i’m interested in your Windows pc and android versions.
    i understand that we can synchronise ours recipes but i would know if we can use the android version without internet connection
    (example : i have not internet connection in my kitchen or when i’m going out. if i do a synchronization before, can i have my recipe on my tabs without internet ?

    and second question : what is the format extension of save file ?
    many thanks

      Hi Carole, yes you can use the android app without an internet connection.
      You can backup your recipes into .mcb (mycookbook zip archive), .xml, .mmf (meal master), .rk (rezkonv) and .html files.

    I don´t know about the problem is happening with the synchronization. I have an account but I don´t get log in. I fill with the e-mail about my count but appear the wrong message. I already reset my password then I received in my e-mail, but I don’t get the synchronization. Is there a solution? P.S.: I reset my password, but I never get the synchronization using the new password. Help me, please.

      Hi, you have to put your username when you are trying to log in, and not your email

    Is there a way to make the online version the ‘master’? I would prefer to push edited recipes down to the android app rather than the other way around…?

      Hi, synchronization is done in both ways. But first sync may take a long time if you have a lot of recipes.
