About this app

The synchronization keeps your lists up-to-date across multiple devices. In addition, you can create groups for different events, create multiple lists per group and invite multiple members. E.g. for family, roommates, office, wedding, vacation, party planning, etc.

To briefly clarify, each group has its own chat with picture and text messages. Helpful if you don't know which shampoo to buy? Or who will bring the barbecue charcoal after Max has cancelled at short notice?

With the group chat you can rely on the fact that the messages are sent to all group members. You don't have to create a group in WhatsApp first. Or worry about whether everyone is on WhatsApp? Or Facebook Messenger, Telegram or Viber.

Here's how you can create long lists quickly: (see picture #3)
• Suggested items from your master list appear after you type two letters. Click on it to add the desired item.
• Select items from the master list and add them with one click.
• Create a shopping list of items you buy regularly, select all items with one click and add them to the preferred list.

Display shopping lists either categorized, alphabetically sorted or manually sorted (see picture #4). Each shopping list can have its own sorting.

In the supermarket you do not have to scroll the list, because if you sort the items into categories and set the category order for the supermarket, the items will appear one after the other as you go through the supermarket. Crossed-off items and whole categories are placed at the end of the list (see picture #5).

Create recipes with ingredients, directions and pictures. With a few clicks you can add all ingredients to a shopping list (see picture #6).

Add pictures to items to always buy the right shampoo, cat food or coffee.

Do you still have something to do? Write it down in the task lists.

There are 4 different designs including Dark theme, 4 font sizes and 6 fonts to choose from.

Additional features:
• If necessary you can edit the master list (including categories, units, stores) in the management menu
• The shopping mode enlarges the lines and makes it easier to cross off items in the supermarket
• Reminders
• Barcode scanner
• Resolve inputs with quantity and price, e.g. 500g tomatoes 2.99
• Edit all items of a shopping list in a single view
• Customize layout in settings, e.g. hide/show progress bar, hyphens, select single-line layout
• Available on Wear OS
• and much more!

Thanks, I figured out the fresh (nice feature, btw). Still, it really doesn't sync at all (only works when group is created with empty data set). Cleared app cache, app data, and cloud data each test. Also, units list become empty after a while, once in a while (while shops, categories, & items are copied fine and persistent)--when creating group using exiting data set, with over-writing cloud data on initial sync.

Swipe down on (nearly) any view in Lister. Then you'll see a refresh animation. Again it might be best to get in touch via email as I mentioned in my previous reply. There I can write more than 350 characters which is the limit here. Greetings

Love it!! It's so simple and i love that you can organize things on your lists and even transfer items on one lost to another! I'm going to download this app on my mom's phone so I we can send things back and forth, I can't wait to try it! This has made my OCD list making so much easier and organized. Plus I'm saving alot of paper (trees) in the process!

I have been using this app for years and got really used to it. It was very frustrating when the app stopped working yesterday because of the update to version 7, and my list of items became incompatible. But the issue has been resolved quickly by Lister Studios. We exchanged a few emails, and the responses were almost instantaneous. What really matters is that I can continue using the app I am so used to and know how to navigate. Thank you very much for a quick and efficient support!
