I'm using the free version. I've become a small bit addicted. The convenience of a shared list for groceries is outstanding on it's own. I have branched out to wish, to do, favorite shows, notes for meetings. Cleverly designed to make me want to have the paid version. In particular the ability to add photos. I give it 4 as it is not as intuitive or beautiful as some other apps. It's well worth using. Would like to give it 4.5.

Fantastic app. Downloaded it just for a grocery list that integrates with Alexa (Amazon's own shopping list feature is horrendous), and it does that beautifully. But it also allows you to autoload lists into a few different grocery apps, save and view online recipes in a super clean format, build meal plans, and probably some other things I haven't discovered yet. At $15/yr per household the premium plan is an absolute no brainer!

I love this app for sharing a grocery list between my wife and I but it seems focused on Apple more than Android. I would love to get notified on my watch when she adds items to the list, but the watch integration is only available on Apple. If I'm going to pay for a subscription , I need all the features. I am content and thankful for the grocery list part tho, it's great!

We send a notification to your Android phone when a list is modified. That notification should show up on your watch, assuming that you have your watch set up to mirror the notifications on your phone. Please email us at if you have any questions. Thanks!
