Grocery Gadget – One of My Favorite i-phone Apps
Even foodies hate grocery shopping, it is a chore that we suffer through. Now I have an app for that! I love my i-phone. While there are apps for everything, I wasn’t sure my i-phone could help improve my grocery shopping experience. After trying several different grocery list apps I settled on Grocery Gadget.
The Grocery Gadget app took some time to set up, but now it is a breeze to keep track of items that I need to purchase. I always have my phone with me and I can add to the list on the go. For longer list updates you can access an online group version of Grocery Gadget.
This i-phone application does a great job with helping manage my grocery lists and other lists I use regularly. Yes, Grocery Gadget allows you to keep multiple lists.
Here are the Grocery Gadget features I use for Weekly Grocery Shopping:
- Create my weekly shopping list from items I have entered into grocery gadget list.
- Add item pictures to identify important brands as needed.
- Organize food by categories (i.e. dairy, cereal etc…)
- Arrange categories on how you go through your store or alphabetically.
- Check off items as you shop and the item goes to the bottom of the list.
- Email the list to your spouse or helper. (YES!- I love help on grocery shopping!)
- Track prices & total cost at the store. No surprises for tight budgets. Adding in the price takes a little extra time, so I only use this feature occasionally. However using pricing info allows you to keep better tabs on prices and sales.
Another handy list is a Pre-vacation To Do List, I can check off critical activities prior to leaving the house for an extended trip. Eventually I will add more lists to extend Grocery Gadget usefulness well beyond getting groceries..
Grocery shopping is still a chore, but I’m more efficient and organized with my new i-phone app Grocery Gadget by Flixoft was well worth $2.99. I love being able to share the list with helpers! This application works on both the i-touch and i-phone. Get your own version at the Apple App Store.
