Which cooking subscriptions/apps do you have and why?

To aid in meal planning, I decided to give a couple of subscriptions a try:
1. Plan to Eat - I used this for about 3 years when they first started and WOW the functionality has improved so much. Recipes are a snap to add to your account (back in the day there were too many websites that they couldn't read properly). Meal planning is so easy, and the shopping list is a great tool. I love the "queue" function too. Now I feel like recipes I want to try won't end up in a Pinterest black hole, never to be seen again. I signed up for only 30 days but will definitely get the one-year subscription when it expires.
2. Eat Your Books - I've seen this mentioned in cookbook threads here. I signed up for a one-month membership to check it out and I'm still a little on the fence about this one. I admit it was nice to type in "chicken thighs" in the search bar and have the results showing dozens of possibilities (especially from cookbooks that I haven't done a lot of cooking from yet - ebook bargains, haha!). The reason I'd keep this is that my cookbook collection isn't huge but it's now divided between books on shelves and ebooks, so it takes more time and mental energy to even *see* the books - if I just walk in the pantry and look on my cookbook shelf now, I'm missing all the ebooks.

What are your thoughts on those subscriptions? What else do you recommend as far as subscriptions or apps?
