Winner of This Old House Top 100: Best New Home Products 2013, Fridge Pal is the easy way to create a home inventory and shopping list.

Ever been at the store and wondered if you had that ingredient at home?

Wanted to set a reminder so you didn't let an ingredient expire and go to waste?

Wished you could tap a few ingredients and then get a list of recipes that used them together?

Fridge Pal helps solve those problems and more.


"This is the best app ever!!!!! This is just what I was looking for and with the recipes it's a very big help when you don't have enough time to think of what's for dinner."

"This app is fantastic. It saves me so much money when I go shopping and helps me plan meals because I know what I have in my cupboard that needs using. It helps to prevent throwing food etc away because you forgot you had it. I love love love this app."

"Great app - Simple to use without lots of confusing decision to make."

"Love this App! - Has everything I need to be organized in my kitchen. I use it for other things I need to keep up with also. I don't think you can go wrong with this app! Keep up the good work!"


How it works:

You scan items in using the barcodes. Fresh produce can be entered manually. Anything you enter is saved to a favourites list so you can readd them at the tap of a button. Move items between your shopping list and storage areas easily, and look up recipes that combine ingredients so you know how to use items about to go bad. Create multiple shopping lists and multiple storage areas so you can keep track of as much or little as you like.

Simplicity, functionality and organization - those are the design goals for this app.

The average household will waste 25% of the food it buys and this adds up to over $1000 a year. As well as saving money you'll be helping reduce food waste which is good for both the pocket book and the environment.

Ratings and Reviews

Absolutely brilliant


Does everything I wanted and more. I use it mostly for creating separate shopping lists and in-store reminders. The geolocator function is very useful and happens automatically, almost freakishly so. I hadn't originally looked for a recipe app, but I'm loving the functionality. I often look up recipes on google, now I have somewhere to store them! Would be nice if it automatically added ingredients for a specific recipe to your list. Maybe that's asking too much. I like the look and feel of the app it's a pleasure to use. It makes me really want to track what I have in my fridge etc though I haven't been good at that -it takes the most effort. Would be good if you could check off what you actually bought from your shopping list and automatically add it to the fridge. Thank you for an awesome app, even if you don't make any improvements it's really useful and well designed hooray!

Good app, but could be better


Good app, very useable with good graphics. Can take a long time when you first use it as it only recognises about 5% of the items so you have to manually enter the details. But you only have to do this once as it will recognise them next time.
The only improvements I would ask for would be, the ability to enter multiple quantities, as each item is entered separately and you can end up with a long list if you like to stock up on certain items!
Also, I'm not sure if this is me missing something, but I can't find a search function? There are categories for items, but I can't seem to find how to find them.

A rare thing: a truly useful app


This app is really great for keeping track of the food you have in the fridge, the pantry or anywhere else for that matter. For me its main use is in the expiry date feature, meaning I can now easily keep track of what needs to be eaten. I am also beginning to use it for other perishable products around the house such as makeup; although it's not designed for that, it works. It's also great for when you're planning to cook something and standing in the shop wondering if you have some random spice or if you should buy some – saves you buying duplicates; therefore saves you money!
