Hands down best list app.


Rarely do I write app reviews but this app is so awesome it is worth taking the time to share my experience. I have used SplashShopper for over 10 years but they abandoned updating the app so it is not compatible with iOS 11. I was dismayed at the thought of having to find a new app and spent a few weeks trying about a dozen of the better ones. It turned out to be a blessing that I needed to find a new app. AnyList does SO much more than I had before and the copy/paste feature made bringing in all my dozens of lists pretty painless. It did a good job of categorizing my grocery lists during paste. Even for lists that it did not know category, it is so easy to do bulk category change so was fast and easy. I have never used a recipe tool in a list app but have to say I LOVE it. Importing from all my fave recipe sites is a snap and then a few taps to get them in the grocery list is fantastic. The list share is amazing-saves so much time in past that my husband and I would spend syncing up our lists. Other great features are Apple Watch integration, adding photos and keeping track of prices. There is so much more. I started with free version but happily paid for family subscription-well worth it for all the time it will save me. This is a must have and we will use it daily. Thank you for all the hard work to create such a killer app.

Absolutely amazing app


I've been using the free version for two years and my husband has it on his phone also. Whenever I put something on the grocery list on my phone or iPad, it also is on his phone and he can see it when he goes to the store.

I purchased another recipe program for my PC two years ago and they kept raising the price every year, ($80), it has gotten so steep I could not afford it. Then I remembered this little app has a recipe file...and more. I figured for the money what did I have to lose so I bought the family plan, OH MY GOODNESS! It is amazingly easy and so full featured. I'm telling everyone I know. My only suggestion to the developer is that I want to send my recipes to an online site, Lulu I think it is, to print out recipe books for my children and grandchildren for Christmas next year. I'd like to see that featured added, if it is there, I have not seen it.. For me, one of the best apps I've purchased, and I purchase very few apps. I can also see my recipes on my tablet with this app.

It is so convenient, at the store when I remember I want to make something for dinner and I can't remember all the ingredients, my recipes are on my phone, I open the app, find the recipe and the list of ingredients are there. I can also add ingredients to my shopping list when in a recipe. You will love it.
