So so handy

Grocery list works great and love being able to easily import recipes from the web so they are all available offline and are easy to read (and without all the ridiculous amount of photos and blogging people seem to add to their recipes). When I’m at the supermarket I can easily add ingredients to my grocery list for a recipe picked at a whim.

Would be an improvement if when viewing a recipe full screen you could choose to display the list of ingredients on the left while viewing the prep on the right. I use my iPad when following recipes and I keep having to scroll back and forth between the amount for each ingredient and the preparation steps for that ingredient.

However I’m not sure about the price for this app being a yearly subscription rather than a one off cost, it may put me off renewing my subscription when the time comes.

My favourite app!

Couldn’t manage without this app! It is my absolute favourite which is used on a daily basis. Whenever I start to run out of something, it is added to the list. As I always have my phone on me, I never need to hunt around for annoying scraps of paper. It reduces the number of times I have to go to the supermarket, and means I rarely run out of anything! Keep up the good work!

Thanks AnyList

This app allows me the flexibility to maintain a number of lists and share them with different people. The interface is quick and easy to use plus very intuitive, and the convenience of having my lists synced across devices means the information is always at hand.
