We live in the country where the term "wireless" means your dog stays in your yard without a leash, and "cable" is something the farmers use to pull city-slickers out of the ditch in the winter. § Unlike our house, not all of our stores have (1) WiFi or (2) cell phone reception, rendering this app useless unless you can send an email from the app, retrieve the email, and the email gets stored locally on your phone while you are still in contact with the magical Internet Fairy. § Generally speaking, it's a well thought-out application, and we still find it very useful. Those of you in the Big City should love it!
When I first got this app it was great. Scanning barcodes made adding items and info quick and easy. Lately however (after recent update), I'm having issues with barcode not focusing or entering information. Customer service responded to my email by basically telling me how to use the scanner. DUH! My most recent grocery trip had me waiting longer than I should have for a scan to take, if at all. Even when it did scan, all I got were the UPC numbers for the item instead of the product info. I ended up having to enter info manually rather than using the scanner, it was a lot quicker. Apparently when they say you need to hold your phone still for the scanner to work they mean you need to really, really, really, really keep the phone from ANY type of vibrations or movement.
Very helpful This app great for helping my husband and I share a grocery list! When we remember to check grocery iq, we don't both come home with bananas. One problem I have had since I switched phones is using the bar code scanner. The app doesn't recognize the size of my screen, so the 'done' button isn't available. Wish I could use that feature again. It is so handy!
Poor Sync Love the app - it's rich with great features like ordering grocery aisles - but it really does not want me to buy pork chops! The sync feature is key to making this app functional for my family, but for unknown reasons it will sync only 12/13 grocery list items. I have tried logging in as my wife and logging in as list sharing... still no pork chops on my list! This could really inconvenience people! They need to fix this issue longstanding issue... We'll need to find an all new app.
Used to be best I used to love and recommend this app to everyone. That won't happen any longer. The newest update rendered the barcode reader inoperable. Customer service was even more useless than the app. They cannot "recreate the problem on their end", so therfore there is no problem. However they did tell me I can still manually type in the products. If I was happy manually typing, I wouldn't know the scanner is broken. If you are considering this app, stop considering and keep looking for a better solution.
Finally gave up Four years ago, this was my favorite, most useful app. Now, after months of trying fixes, the glitches have made it unusable and I've switched to another grocery app. It crashes, items disappear from both my list and my favorites unexpectedly, and the online user interface is an unreliable joke. Sync feature is complete garbage. Tech support is unhelpful, they just provide canned responses even though I clearly say I've already tried them. Don't waste your time, this app had it's heyday and is now dead.
