• Improved the Recipes search on the Home screen, now you can search by keywords with the searchBar:
a) Added this line into Configs.swift:
    let RECIPES_KEYWORDS = "keywords" 
b) Edited 'queryRecipes()' method in Recipes.swift
c) Edited 'submitButt()' method in AddEditRecipes.swift
PLEASE NOTE: IF THIS IS AN UPDATE FOR YOU, you need to do the following:
1. Updated the swift files by comparing the updated one mentioned above with your old ones
2. Submit a test recipe via the app
3. Enter your Parse Dashboard -> Recipes class, check the new column named "keywords" and manually add the missing keywords in the empty cells of that column. Ex: If a recipe has a title like "Asian vegetable broth", you'll need to enter the keyword of that row as it follows: ["asian","vegetable","broth"].
You have to do that for all the empty cells you'll find in the Recipes class -> "keywords" column, then you'll be able to submit your update to the App Store.

Recipes is a Universal App template where you can post your own recipes in details, attach a video from YouTube and get involved in a funny community.
You can also browse recipes from other users, see their profiles, share their and your recipes to popular social networks, build a Shopping list of ingredients with a single tap (useful to go to the market and check the items you’ve bought), filter recipes by category or text search.

Since its backend is by Parse Server, you don’t have to buy any domain/hosting, there are NO PHP files to upload to a web server so you’ll save some money for server side.

Recipes is a native Xcode project, Swift language, Storyboard, Universal, Push Notifications for likes, super easy to customize, Parse SDK hosted on

What about free support for this template?

I can offer free support for bugs encountered in the original code. Instead, if you’ve edited the code and messed something up with it, I may apply some fee to fix it either via TeamViewer or by checking your app project files directly on my computer.

Should I use the latest version of Xcode to edit this template?

Yes, I always update my apps to the latest version of the IDE.

Why do I need to have login from Apple Account in the app?

Yes, because from 30th April 2020, APPLE authorities restricted the apps using 3rd party login from FACEBOOK, GOOGLE etc should also integrate “APPLE SIGN IN” method in the app. For reference: APPLE SIGN IN GUIDELINES
