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.
What's New in Version 17.1.6
- Fixed crash when deleting an item and going back into list view
- Fixed section names not showing up correctly in Shopping Item view after choosing All from Shopping List selection screen
- Improved database integrity
- Removed 'Scan Now' button from home screen, to scan use the 'Add' button in any of the list views
A lot of potential
The idea of this app is fantastic. It would be much more useful if the barcode scanner worked to automatically add information. Instead, everything must be entered manually. The improvement of that feature would get five stars and an upgrade from me.
No database for barcode scanner
This would be a great app if I didn't have to inventory a grocery store just to use the scanner. Not a fan of hidden surprises like that. So if you have the time and desire to scan and manually enter everything in your pantry then this may be your app, but it's not mines.
Useless without a UPC database.
This app has lots of potential, but like other reviewers, I think this app is useless without a UPC database. It takes you longer to scan every item, and enter all the info manually, than to just write out a grocery list.
Plus, if you scan an item, it just plays a sound and goes back to the menu. You have to manually scroll through your pantry to see if it actually added, or if you have to go and then enter it manually.
I regret making the in-app purchase to get more pantry locations before realizing how clunky this app really is.
