Editors' Notes

Organise your recipes, tasks, and shopping lists.

Reviewing Upgrade App which includes extra functions.

SHB in the UK

I like to be organised & love this list app. I have bought the upgrade & although it seems expensive compared to other apps, I had the cost back in a couple of weeks as I no longer over buy at the supermarket.
You can set up & customise lots of lists. One of mine is a Pantry List, which helps me keep track of my herbs, spices, oils etc so I can see what ingredients I need to buy for new recipes whilst away from the house.
Yesterday I hadn’t had time to make a shopping list before leaving the house. But I was able to use the app to choose recipes, set meal plans, check & download the ingredients I needed on to my shopping list & then from my favourites add all the routine shopping items I required for the week. All accomplished in 10 minutes.
Brilliant for downloading recipes within seconds, including picture, ingredients (which you can then select individual items to add to your shopping list) & step instructions. You can even add your own recipes, including downloading photos, so I now use this more than cook books.
You can customise your shopping list so that the categories are in the order of your supermarket which is useful.
Other types of lists I have set up is a Holiday Packing list & a To Do list!
The app providers also give ongoing support. I asked a question via their help & received an email back the following day with a step by step explanation on how to do it.

Best app of its kind


An incredibly well thought out app which makes planning meals an absolute breeze. I’d been looking for something like this for a long time and was so happy to find AnyList did exactly what I wanted and more. It’s well designed, intuitive and easy to use. I love that I can find a recipe online, import ingredients to the app, save it as a future recipe with step by step instructions, then add items to my shopping list. It’s become my digital cookery book. The premium service is well worth purchasing too, especially if you have family/housemates who you can share shopping lists with.
