Shopping UK is a free shareable, shopping list that saves you time on your weekly supermarket shop. Enter the names of products or choose from suggestions, and watch as your items are automatically grouped by their location in the supermarket.

• Automatically synchronise your list with family and friends — for free. Immediately see their changes, and they will see yours. Shopping together? Split up, and tick-off items as you each add them to your basket. Your list will reflect what is left to get.

• Add items from the built-in database of over 20,000 product names to save typing.

• Or, enter items using natural language (beef or lamb, wine for tonight, birthday card - Amy).

• Enter quantities (1 apple, 3 red peppers, beer x24, a dozen eggs), weights and measures (5kg potatoes, 2 pints of milk, 200g ham) and sizes (small onion, large steak)

• Layout your list as you choose. Use spacing to plan by recipe, day of the week, or event.

• When you’re ready to shop, tap Start to auto-arrange the list based on the location in the supermarket.

• Tick each item off the list as you place it in your basket or trolley.

• When finished, clear the list ready for the next time.

• No internet connection needed †

• Supports large text display.

• Self-improving suggestions — the more you use it, the smarter it becomes.

• Completely free to use — no hidden extras.

Basic but brilliant


Like the title says, this app is so basic but it is brilliant! So easy to use. I love the way it automatically puts products into a category and the fact that if you think it’s wrong, a few taps and you can change it to different one. Makes things so much easier when going around the store, tells you everything you need from that section!!

Only thing I think that would make it perfect, would be to be able to create different lists at the same time! I go to a few shops for different things, so have had to add them to the same list. To have different lists, with a title to differentiate between them would make this app perfect!

Wow - many thanks for your lovely words! Multiple list support will be the next big feature to be delivered after sharing support (which will arrive shortly). I have also noted your suggestion to have the ability to change the title — great feedback :)

Love this app!


Brilliant design! I just have to comment when someone has obviously thought hard about the user requirements for an app.
This addresses the need to create the list with the minimum of typing and fuss, then it sorts the items into a useable list for when you hit the shop.
Pops suggestions as you type and if there are a lot, it suggests a group that you can tap for more suggestions-Genius! Also, the built in list is humungus and not in American!
I’m not much for gimmicks but the animated sorting into categories is understated and classy.
Agree with the other suggestions for adding and reordering sorting categories to add a bit of polish to a great idea.

What's happened?


I've been happily using this app for ages but today, when I added something and then did my normal 'clean up' it removed everything! Having to test my memory now to see if I can remember what was on there 😠

In response to your reply - I don't think I hit the clear all option but I guess I have no way to check this. I'm still using the app as it is great but I really don't care for the share option being so close to the start - can't understand why anyone would want or need to share a shopping list! You say it's been requested - fail to understand that 😉 Anyway, thanks for responding and thank you for providing an excellent app in the first place.

I am truly sorry you've experienced this difficulty with the app. I have spent some time reviewing the code behind the app and I have run through a set of testing scenarios, and I'm struggling to find anything that might account for the app's bad behaviour. The only thing I can think of is, with the Clean-up button being so close to the Clear All button, is there a chance you accidentally tapped the wrong option? If so, this is not your fault — the app's design is clearly to blame for having this common option situated right next to Clear All. I will definitely look into this aspect of the design. It deserves to be improved.

If you are certain you clicked the Clean-up button, and can think of anything at all to help me find the root cause, please email me at

Once again, please accept my apologies.
