I would give this app a 5 star rating if it would allow me to sync accurately between devices. Unless we both delete from our individual devices, the items reappear after syncing. The only way he can shop is if I message him my list. I have not found any other app that allows me to do everything this one does. Fix the sync or let me know what we are doing wrong.
In the details about the app it clearly states that it can make changes to your SD card. However one cannot move the app to your SD card and when changing to a new phone lose all your carefully accumulated data. This is s flaw which should be rectified. Should one be able to do this and free up device storage, I would give 5 stars. Is there a reason that this had not already been developed???
I like it but I really wish the backup function worked. I tried backing it up to my Google account but it doesn't appear to work. When I had to switch phones, The backup wouldn't show in the new device Only the old which really did me no good.
I use this app mostly to make lists for the shopping needs of the day. My wife uses the same app so she can see the same list when she uses the sync function. It's an easy smartphone way to coordinate grocery shopping. The shopping list app is also very useful for other kinds of lists as well. I keep a list of my prescription medications that I can show my doctor instead of trying to remember or carrying a piece of paper around. Shopping List can also be used for listing the ingredients in a recipe. It is an easy to use and reliable app. The reason I gave it 4 stars rather than 5 is because I have had problems with the sync function bringing back items to the list that have already been deleted. Although the shopping list app allows you to take a picture to be included with a list entry, that picture is not transmitted with the entry to someone else who is syncing to the list. Sometimes a picture would be really helpful. K
I like how over time as I shop I build a database of items & prices, which gives me a good idea as to how much my groceries will cost before I head out the door. I also like that as I am shopping, I enter prices and quantities for those items that are not in the database, and I have a total cost before I get to the cashier. The only problem I see is that making Backups is very clumsy. The backup interface is poorly designed as it does not let you choose the location of the file by directory nor does it let you see any already existing file names when you are to give your current backup a name. So you have to guess the increment, or name the backup for the current date.
I'd give this app a higher rank if it actually synched between phones. I've changed phones and have to start personalizing it all over, not to mention others cannot add to the list. But obviously they're doing something right, since I keep coming back.
* You can now search for items inside the list
* Removed bug with adding photo to your item or list on newer versions of Android phones
