AnyList v5.9.3 includes a number of bug fixes.
AnyList v5.9 introduces a number of major changes to categories. Categories are now maintained on a per-list basis, which means categories in shared lists will stay in sync for all users of the list. In addition, renaming a category in one of your lists won't impact the categories in your other lists.
Since users of a shared may have previously had different categories for a shared list, after updating to AnyList v5.9 you may see categories in your shared lists appear in a different order than before and / or items in shared lists may appear in different categories than in previous versions of AnyList. Please see the FAQ here for more information:
AnyList v5.9 introduces the ability to duplicate a list.

Ratings and Reviews
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.
Absolutely hands-down best list app
I use this app everyday for my to-do list and grocery list. It is extremely robust, yet simple to use, and I’ve noticed over the past 3 years that many new features have been added to help especially when making a grocery list... like the ability to input specific quantities of items along with units (for example 2 lbs of ground beef, or 4 count of apples). The newest addition I’ve noticed is the ability to assign different grocery stores to things you want to buy. Rather than setting up a grocery list for each individual grocery store I want to visit, I can assign a grocery store to an item and have all items in just one master grocery list. I also have the optional subscription add-on to be able to access and edit this list from my laptop as well, which is really nice to be able to do during, say, a slow period at work so it doesn’t look like I’m just playing with my phone at my desk, and I can create a grocery list to shop with right when I leave work. I also find the ability to share lists with another person as crucial. Right now my husband and I are trying to both go through a shared to-do list before our baby arrives. Seeing things getting crossed off in real-time is awesome and gives me a sense of satisfaction!
No more getting to the store and realizing my list is at home!
We have been using AnyList for years, and love it. Any time we see we’re running low on something, one of us will grab our phone (which, let’s face it, is always at our fingertips) and add it to the AnyList app. Being able to build lists for different types of stores is great. My husband LOVES the photo feature for those less frequently purchased items, because even if I’m not with him, he’s confident that he has selected the correct product. Categorizing makes shopping more efficient, and utilizing Favorites makes populating the list a breeze. When only one of us is at the store, and the other one realizes there’s something else we need, all it takes is a quick add to the list, and the one shopping knows to get it. One of our daughters has added “puppy” to the list a couple of times, but so far that hasn’t worked. I’ve found that I need to be careful with what I add, however. My husband went grocery shopping alone because I wasn’t feeling well, so to express my appreciation while he was at the store, I put “XOXOXO” on the list. He came home with all of the groceries, including a HUGE bag of Hershey’s kisses!
