How do I hard-close the app (to get new recipes to load)?

New recipes, and recipe adjustments to existing recipes, will automatically download to the Hestan Cue app when you open it from a fresh start. If you already have the Hestan Cue app running in the background, you'll first need to hard-close the app, and then re-open it. Hard closing the app can also help to resolve possible software glitches.

Below are steps on how to hard-close the app:

Apple iOS:

  1. Double click the Home button to bring up the fast app switcher.
  2. Navigate to the Hestan Cue app screen.
  3. Swipe up on the app by flicking it up and off the screen. This will hard-close the app.


  1. Launch the "recent applications" menu. Look for a button with an icon of 2 stacked rectangles:
  2. Find the Hestan Cue app from the resulting list by scrolling up from the bottom.
  3. Tap and hold on the application and swipe it to the right, or tap on the X (close) icon. 

After you hard-close the app, open it again and it will automatically download recipe data.
