Ratings and Reviews
I am currently trying out a few grocery list apps, since my (very) old Palm finally bit the dust. I really like this app. But there does seem to be a pretty steep learning curve. There does not seem to be any way to hide the category bars that are not currently in use, which is somewhat annoying. I think that adding an item to the shopping list is a little cumbersome, and contacting the developer could be less complicated, too.
I like the ability to get item costs and item categorized together. After the initial purchases and your data has been entered the value of the app shines through.
From a technological standpoint the app is great for tech savvy individuals. However for the folks new to technology (post Luddites) then this app may be a little overwhelming.
Some things I would like to see improved are:
- The ability to use a decimal when entering the pounds of meat for a more accurate calculation.
- Enable the user to create more than one list.
- A feature that would allow a significant other to receive your list through a text message or email.
Much thought went into the app and it shows.
The best Shopping list application
The best shopping list application so far. It combines outstanding flexibility and rich customization options with ease of use.
I've benchmarked a dozen of shopping list applications. This application is remarkably different from others being well thought-out and designed.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
