About this app

Make A List is a user and budget friendly grocery list app that will help you stick to your budget, save you time, and even help save you money.
Lists are sorted by aisle and section so that you can acquire all items as you progress through the shop and never have to backtrack through busy aisles again.
Update prices as you shop so that you always know you are within your budget. If an item has been relocated since you were last in store, update the location as you go so that you know next time where your item has been relocated to.
Each time you update a price or mark an item as 'In Basket' a history list is updated so that you can view how frequently you buy the item and any price changes. So, when you see a supermarket claiming 'extra special' prices, you have the ability to check and see just how special the price they are offering actually is.
By following your list, you will be able to skip any aisles that do not contain required items, thereby saving time and also saving money by allowing you to by-pass any 'enticing special deals' in these aisles that you really don't need to buy.
Once an item has been selected from the shelves and placed in the shopping trolley or basket. A single tap will mark the item as 'In Basket'. This updates the 'In Basket' total cost and changes the text color of that item row to gray so that you know at a glance where you are up to.
Ever wanted to compile a list of things you didn't buy in one supermarket because you know they are cheaper in another (but you just wanted to check the prices in this supermarket first)? With just two taps, Make A List can transfer any items remaining in your current grocery list (items not marked as 'In Basket') to the grocery list of any other shop you have saved in your app.
This function is also useful if you have prepared your list for one shop but find you will now be going to another shop (that you have saved in your app). Simply transfer the grocery list to the shop you will now be going to.

Once transferred, all you need to do is load the shop you transferred the items to and you have a sorted list that conforms to the layout of that shop.

You can add as many shops as you like so that no matter how many supermarkets you regularly go to, you will always have a list that conforms to each shop layout.

Shops can be saved to a file in your Downloads folder so that you have an external backup. Once backed up you can easily share your shop layout with friends or family.

Want your partner or a family member to pick up a list of items at the supermarket on the way home? Simply email your shop file to them. They can then choose to either load the whole shop file if they do not already have a layout for this supermarket, or they can choose to just extract the grocery list from that file to append to their own shop file.

What's new

File access now complies with Android 11 specifications.
Make A List no longer directly accesses the public "Download" folder.
Devices running Android 6.0 and above now use a file picker, to select the file or folder to save backup files to, or load backup files from. They also have the option of using the Make A List Internal ‘Download’ folder.
Devices running below Android 6.0 will only have access to the Make A List internal "Download" folder "/Android/data/com.makealist/files/Download'.
