Love it, wish it allowed punctuation

This is a fantastic app. I use the pro version and I definitely recommend it. Color-coding is a great feature - I use it for all sorts of lists, not just grocery shopping: online orders received/not received/to return, books I’m reading, weekend plans, and gift shopping for friends and family during the holidays. The user interface is intuitive, and I love that you can type continuously while creating several list items in a row, hitting enter between each, without having to tap the + sign to add each new item like most other list apps I’ve tried. Saves a lot of time!

The only downside is that, as part of this feature, Buy Me a Pie does this annoying thing where you can’t type commas, colons, or semicolons in any list item - ever. It will automatically truncate the text and turn whatever’s after the punctuation into a new line item. I wish there were a way to turn this feature off, because I use this app to keep track of pretty complex things and when I need to type a comma, I want the comma to appear as typed. I’m sure some people love this feature, but for me, hitting enter to start new lines is enough. So an on/off toggle for treating punctuation as a new line in the settings would be awesome.

Not Lost

Glad I found this app

Bought this to replace a list app that didn't make the iOS 8 transition quickly enough. This app is a lot like that last one, but even better. I like that it syncs between devices. I like how it saves items that have been purchased so one can quickly re-add them to the list when one needs to purchase the item again. I like the color coding that one can add to items. I like that items are easily editable. I like having multiple lists.

It might be nice in a future version to be able to attach a photo to an item on the list, so one doesn't have to type lots of details about it. It would be nice to see "red wine" on a list, and then open a photo to see the details of a specific wine.

Thank you for this detailed review and an interesting idea! Actually, it seems like we already have it in our Ideas Base: Could you please vote for it? The more votes it gets, the higher its priority will be in our developers’ roadmap.


Great app!

I love this app. Can customize items based upon where found in the store making efficient shopping easy! I also love how a busy household can all contribute. My husband and I can update along the way - seeing what others add in real time. Also as items get checked off all people are notified - I will admit it makes me realize "oh boy, he's at the grocery already! I better quick add what I've forgotten!" Only reason im not giving 5 stars - it is super easy to accidentally cross something off. I wish it required a side swipe or something. It's so easy to accidentally tap the wrong line or touch your screen as you go. Oh, also love how it interfaces on Apple Watch. Makes instore shopping a breeze!!!!

Thank you for this positive review! Actually, a product can be marked as purchased either with a tap or with a left to right swipe gesture. Select either of these ways in the application settings:

1. Open the application settings
2. Tap "Cross Off Items"
3. Select either "Single Tap" and "Swipe Right"
