Sharing and Exporting Recipes

How do I email a recipe?

Open ChefTap on your device, then open the recipe you’d like to email to someone.


Tap the share icon at the top of the screen


A dialog will pop up that lets you choose which app to send the recipe to. Tap your email app and then tap the button labeled “Just Once” to open your email app with the recipe in the body of the email.

Android didn’t let me choose an app

If you tap the share icon and Android doesn’t let you choose an app, but automatically opens some other app, that means that at some point, you’ve set that app to open every time you share from ChefTap. To undo that, open the system settings app on your device and find your application manager. Open the app settings for ChefTap.

Scroll down to the section labeled ‘Launch by default’ and then tap the button labeled “Clear defaults”. This will cause ChefTap to pop up a dialog when you tap the share button in a recipe. Remember to tap the “Just Once” button when sharing.


Tap the share icon in the toolbar or at the top of the screen if you’re running ChefTap on an iPad.
