Simple Grocery List is a free app to help you keep track of all your grocery item needs...simply and easily.

Did your favorite grocery list app start adding more features than you can shake a stick at? Do you now get daily deals, customized flyers, friend integration, reminders, and item scanning? We're proud to say that Simple Grocery List contains none of those features. We are the mobile equivalent of that grocery list that you used to keep attached to your refrigerator. Simple Grocery List is as easy as Sunday morning.

Just because we tend to be considered 'old fashioned', doesn't mean we aren't packing features to help make you life easier. Simple Grocery List keeps track of your items behind the scenes, and presents those used most frequently when you want to add one. It also comes loaded with the most common grocery items, to help speed up your input. Check off items as you add them to your cart. Delete items individually, or the entire list at once. Rearrange items as you see fit, after all, you know your store best. Email your list to yourself or others from your device. Mailed lists can be imported by tapping the icon in the received mail message. Sync lists between iOS devices. Don't like the default theme? Multiple theme options are now available in the theme store.

As many have stated, I looked a long time for something to make multiple lists. I have one for each grocery type store. We travel a lot, so I have my local lists and Costco and Trader Joe's. We have a second home so I have those local stores as well. We build custom homes and I decorate homes so I'm always restocking my tool box so I have a Lowes and HD list. I like that it lets you keep checked off items at the top, however, the only drawback is, as someone else stated, I would like it to keep the items in the order I need them for each store isle, AND move the checked off items to the bottom. Every store is laid out somewhat differently and that would be so helpful, leave it by order input and check off items at the bottom. That's my input. Otherwise it is super handy for me. Thank so much! Oh, I just discovered the differ t themes after reading a review and I really like that! That makes it fun and different to view and brighter and easier for my older eyes to see. Thanks again!

Useful but...

Really needs to be able to share the list via the app NOT via email. Signed up for the coupon list but it added a THIRD-PARTY email account and SEPARATE profile to my iPhone. A bit intrusive IMO. Why not just add your email account to receive coupons instead of adding a profile and email account (which was a bit difficult to remove!) SIGH. UPDATE IN RESPONSE TO DEVELOPER: While setting up the app on my IPhone 7Plus, apparently an ad popped up during installation/setup as an offer for local coupons. It appeared as if this were part of the set up of the app. Though your app specifically may not do what I described, ads appearing WITHIN the app WHILE setting up/using the app seem to be contributed to your app. Maybe this is an Apple issue on how ads are presented to the user (I.e. Click bait), making it seem like it's from the developer. Either way, I've deleted the app. Thank you for your response.

Simple Grocery List does not have a coupon list for which to sign up for. We can not, and do not add any third-party email or profile to your device. You can share lists via the standard email app which Apple provides in iOS. Not sure what app you were using, but none ignored what you are describing is possible inside our app.

Failed me when I needed it to work.


My mom uses this app all the time. I thought I would try it out. Making my grocery list was pretty easy. There were a couple of features I wish it had, but overall I was happy. That was until I tried to use the app while I was out shopping. The store I was at doesn't get very much cell reception except for in the very front of the store. I didn't expect it to affect the app, but it did. While I was shopping the app didn't want to load, or I couldn't check items off my list. I would go to the front of the store just to get it to work. I ended up taking screenshots of my list just so I could shop. I really wanted to love this app like my mom does, but it failed me when I needed it most.
