It's just ok. Better than most. If you add a new product it doesn't save it in the system, so if you remove it from your list you will have to remake it again. Like the cookbook. It's nice to add your own recipes instead of just searching online like most apps (you can search online too in GK) . Wish you can make a dinner plan for the week and let it remind you to cook what on the correct day. I paid for the full version and I will keep it till I find something better.
Grocery King So so good. Better than all the others I have used. What I would as an elderly bachelor really like is a recipe import like Paprika and a special shopping list just for that specific recipe with all the spices etc that these recipes seem to need. ie shop just for that special Indian treat or whatever. I do like the pantry/ fridge idea. - never know what's lurking under all that ice in the freezer.
A few tweaks but phenomenal app! They need to fix the recipe section to upload into grocery list and be able to upload receipt copy from file instead of forcing you to use camera. Wish bar code scanner read my loyalty cards better, too. Otherwise, this app is the bomb! Happily bought upgraded version and highly recommended it to my friends and family ☆
I really want to give this app 5 stars. I've tried a lot of shopping list apps and this is the best. However, I bought a new phone and haven't been able to move my customized db over to the new phone. I had the free version. So I decided to upgrade to the paid version but I still can't get my customized db on the new phone. I can't even get the db from the the free version to the paid version on my old phone. I also couldn't get the cloud sync to work even with the paid version. I got an error every time I tried. I tried emailing the author but haven't heard a peep back from them. Now I have to decide whether to keep this app and recreate my db by hand or to search again to find a different app. When I last did a survey of available apps, I didn't find any that I truly liked as much as grocery king.
This USED to be the absolute best app out there and WELL worth the nominal fee for the paid version. My husband and I lived and died with it for years. But syncing has stopped working. We've tried everything, even signing up under a new account and nothing works. Emailed the developer on several occasions but got no response. If you're buying this because you want to share your list OR because you don't want to lose it when you change new phones, you'll be disappointed. I know I'm crushed that I now have to look elsewhere.
Works quite nice, recommended! I'd recommend GK, it's a solid working shopping list which is really making shopping easier for me. What bugs me a bit is that GK does not offer a website where you can manage all the data from your computer. Sometimes it's just easier to use a real keyboard and have a bigger screen. However, I didn't regret the switch from my previous shopping list app at all.
