I have been using the tadalist.com web site and have been generally happy with it. It's a web page that works in any browser, so it's really easy to sync with; my wife can add the half-dozen items she forgot to put on the initial list while I'm on the way to the store and I'll see them when I get there.

The problem is that I only have marginal connectivity at best in the stores where I do most of my shopping, and often it drops to zero bars. With the previous version of the tadalist.com software, that was only a relatively minor inconvenience: each item had a checkbox, and even when I was offline the checkbox worked (although moving a checked item to the bottom of the list only happened when I was in a part of the store where I had a signal). However, they just changed how the list works on my phone, and there's no more checkbox: the only way to identify that an item has been bought is when it moves to the bottom of the list and is shown with a strikethrough, and you can only make that happen when you're connected to their server.

So what I'm looking for is an application that has good synchronization via a server like tadalist.com but is also functional when I'm in a dead zone in the store (i.e., shows me what I've bought and updates the server once connectivity is restored). Do either of these fill that bill, or are there others I should consider? I really don't care about recipes and master lists and stuff like that; I just want a list that syncs well but works locally when I'm offline.

Thanks for any suggestions.

Honestly I tried using apps for shopping but fumbling with a phone while pushing a cart around wasn't particularly fun.

I guess for me the pencil and paper still work best for groceries.

+1! Our Groceries is fantastic. It also has a web version so you can use it from PCs, iPads, whatever.

Default Best grocery list app?

What is the best shopping/grocery list app you have found? One that syncs between different devices, mine and husbands, would be ideal but not necessary.

I have been using Out of Milk and like it just fine so far. It is the only one I have used though so take it for what it is worth.

As always, "best" is highly subjective. Can you qualify what you mean? What features are you looking for? What other preference do you have?

My wife and I use Our Groceries. It allows for list sharing, is cross platform (she has an iPhone) and has a web interface.

You can try my app, if you'd like. It's called "Shopriant" -- allows syncing between phones, multiple lists, voice input, multiple sorts [aisle, category, A-Z, remaining, priority, etc], simple interface, etc. The main goal being lightweight, fast, and simple.

If it takes off I'll be building a web interface for it as well.

There are a ton of other apps out there if it doesn't fit the bill. The most popular seem to be Our Groceries, Grocery King, Out of Milk.

Feel free to try mine out as well -- Shopriant. I just put out a new push-notification version today for almost-instant updates. I also want to know how it can be improved, etc.

I'll give yours a try and let you know what i think . Am also trying OurGroceries and Shopping IQ but neither seem to do all i want. Out of Milks new pro version might fit the bill but i hate to pay before trying something first.

Thirding or Fourthing "Our Groceries" - great app.

Simple to use, syncing between multiple phones is easy to set up and almost instant, voice addition of items to list, free w/ads, paid version also available w/out ads), and it launches and runs fast. Starting the app lands you on the list page where you see all your lists and the number of outstanding items, which is a nice overview. The app can also store recipes to allow you to quickly pick up what's needed.

You can use their web site to import items for your grocery lists (I exported my info from To Market and imported it in a couple of clicks into Our Groceries.

Highly recommended. Not as pretty as others, but for me the most effective/efficient of any of them.

My wife and I looked at a LOT of other apps (all on this list) and came back to Our Groceries.

I am coming from HandyShopper and the only one almost keeping up with it is ToMarket. It is working very well for me and the next version should fix some last bugs found and introduce some requested features... for me the best shopping app.

I used to use Grocery IQ, but the syncing became extremely unreliable. When Mighty Grocery was available for free on Amazon awhile back my wife and I got it. It has been flawless so far, but more complicated to use than Grocery IQ.

I tried it today.. It looks really nice and will be my choice if you end up building a web interface for it (only advantage Our Groceries holds for me right now).

Cool, I'll start working on building up the web interface for it. Shouldn't be hard -- since it's an API already. Let me know what else I can add/fix/change/undo/etc

Quick suggestions:

- make the categories editable so we can have the categories we need/use
- a useful feature in Our Groceries is to be able to change which list an item is on when editing that particular item
- they also allow to delete all crossed off items on a list at once
- not sure how useful "Quantity I have" is, but it's not really a hindrance either, I just leave it at 0.

I love the integration of the barcode scanner, and I really like how clean the UI looks. Thanks for a sweet app!

Just started using OurGroceries this weekend - very solid app, with cross-platform support and a good web interface.

I don't care about "running totals" of prices, because I don't want to be inputting them as I shop to be honest.

Prices are for wimps! ;-)

Yeah - I never used any price tracking/info, too much going on w/just keeping up with what I need and what I've bought.

If To Market did phone/web/phone syncing, I'd still be using it, love that app, but it's standalone only...

I'm enjoying your app too! Now i need to set up my husband and see how well the syncing works. Super easy to use and clean UI. I like the idea of running totals though. I see you have the option of inputting prices. Could it be that if you use the pricing feature that it will do a shopping cart total? Great job!

Ahh, the price field. Initially I started coding up the running totals stuff and hit a point in writing the app that I figured: "I have the field there and it syncs, I can always add the price totaling later". So I focused on implementing everything else first just to get the app on the market. Also I had no idea if there was any demand for a running total. So, I'll add that to my "todo" list.

Later today I'll be working on the move/copy functionality per psychoswim's suggestion. Following that up with a "delete all crossed off items". Then hopefully I can work on the running totals portion. I need to figure out a sleek way of doing it that can be enabled/disabled based on the user wanting it.

Just tried OurGroceries, great app. I'm not so concerned about syncing and have an Optimus with low app space, so I use "Check and Done" instead (I share lists with dropbox or email if I want to sync). It does almost the same thing (except give you the grocery item choices), in less space and with more readable UI. Once I get a Triumph, I'll probably switch to OurGroceries, but it's a bit overkill for my needs.

I also have to agree with "Out of Milk". My wife and I make a game of it when we go to the store. She rattles off the price and I put it in the phone. I think we have just about entered every grocery item at Walmart in to it. LOL

I have used both GroceryIQ and OurGroceries. Though I liked the built-in categories, units of Measure, ability to scan in items, and Favorites list in GroceryIQ; GroceryIQ syncing between phones was very unreliable and slow.

Though OurGroceries does not have any of the above nice features, the ability to Sync flawlessly and quickly between phones was the most important feature I needed. OurGroceries fits that bill. Since my wife and I believe in getting grocery shopping done as quick as possible, we divide and conquer. Because of the nearly instantaneous syncing we are able to go to different parts of the store or even a different store to complete our shopping in half the time.

I will try Shopriant if it has reliable, quick syncing between phones. All other features are just icing on the cake!

With the previous version of the tadalist.com software, that was only a relatively minor inconvenience: each item had a checkbox, and even when I was offline the checkbox worked (although moving a checked item to the bottom of the list only happened when I was in a part of the store where I had a signal). However, they just changed how the list works on my phone, and there's no more checkbox: the only way to identify that an item has been bought is when it moves to the bottom of the list and is shown with a strikethrough, and you can only make that happen when you're connected to their server.

So what I'm looking for is an application that has good synchronization via a server like tadalist.com but is also functional when I'm in a dead zone in the store (i.e., shows me what I've bought and updates the server once connectivity is restored). Do either of these fill that bill, or are there others I should consider? I really don't care about recipes and master lists and stuff like that; I just want a list that syncs well but works locally when I'm offline.

Thanks for any suggestions.
afaik, OurGroceries fits that bill

If I'm shopping and someone adds an item at home on the PC or Tablet, it pops up on my phone several seconds later.

It allows you to assign items to groups and I'm using supermarket aisles - I click to add Icing Sugar and it pops under the Heading Aisle 5. I only have to assign Icing Sugar to Aisle 5 once.

An example of brilliant design.

Grocery King. It uses the bar code scanner to both add to your list, as well as to strike off items that you have put in your cart.

I started using this app too but I use stores instead of isles. We always buy certain products in the same store so that's mighty convenient too!
Even my mom uses it now, and that's saying something!

+1 here too. Coming from a Blackberry where the hubby is staying with his, glad it's multi-platform.

My husband and I have been using Zip List (Grocery Shopping List & Online Grocery List - Welcome To ZipList) for a couple of years now. You can have multiple lists, and both users can update the lists and they stay in sync. You can add to lists by text and even Google Chat. Love it.

I really like Hungry! Shoplist. It doesnt do anything clever or fancy, just lets you add items to a list and then check them off again while youre shopping. Maybe if you do a lot of complicated shopping it might fall short but it does the job perfectly for me.

It's also only 158k in size as opposed to something like ziplist which is 16M in size.

Do any of these apps juggle aisles within stores?

A few yr ago, I was playing with a demo version of a desktop only grocery program whose name I can no longer remember. It allowed you to set up the contents of different aisles in different stores. So if I wanted cereal and told the program I was going to store A, it printed out a list with cereal in aisle 5, but for another store it might print out aisle 7. Their site also allowed subscribers to contribute store maps, so you didn't necessarily have to map out each store yourself.

This would be useful for me because I switch stores depending on where I am - like if I'm leaving work I go to one store, but if I'm starting from somewhere else, I might choose a different store.

I like grocery IQ, I use it on my Commando and on my ipod. I like the fact that you can just go through the list and uncheck the items you buy frequently. You don't have to enter it all again. It also lists by aisle or by store.

Default Running total

Lot of comments on running totals here, but none seem to mention the most important reason for them - incorrect pricing at the register. I keep a close eye on shelf prices and register prices and almost invariably something is wrong - and never in my favor. Being able to input prices as I shop and then keep an eye on it at the register would be awesome!

I am a new smart phone user and can't seem to figure out how to update OurGroceries from my computer to sync to my phone. I really want an app that has that feature. How do you do it?

Nevermind. I found my own answer. Really enjoying everyone's input to the question of the best grocery app out there though.

The one thing I am after is a place that allows me to mark for a coupon. When I make my grocery list we use coupons to get the basics. I would like to be able to have a way to know if I have the coupon or something to that effect. I am going to try your app to see how it works. Thanks
