Within my top #10 apps - just brilliant!

Folks, I used multiple shopping AND recipe app before AnyList and this one takes the top ranking (in both categories); it’s not even a close contest! In fact, this is one of my most used of any apps on my iPhone (and I have 100+ in multiple categories). The native recipe clipping built into the OS works across apps like Food Network as well as so many recipe blogger sites. In a recent update, AnyList also added the ability to copy and paste a recipe in, greatly enhancing this part of the app, to provide even more flexibility for websites that aren’t constructed for this type of clipping otherwise. The scaling feature helps you adjust recipes to just the right size to feed only you or your crowd of any size! Then, to top it off, the handy meal planning and automatic shopping list creation is just what you need to make your grocery trips efficient for the days ahead.

I have even used this app to catalog and inventory my father’s wood works… for craft shows we do. My only wish is that there was an export feature that was better. I can get the list out in text form, but the pictures don’t transfer. This would be very handy for added flexibility but I understand it is not at the core of what AnyList is about.

All in all, I strongly recommended you get this app, subscribe to the premium edition, and tell all your friends. I DO and will KEEP DOING THIS. Well done, AnyList team!!! (and, I get it as an entrepreneur founder/CEO)

One of my favorite apps

I’ve been using this app for years and it just came up on my renewal, so I figured I would leave a review as I am always happy to subscribe. I use this as a family subscription at only $15 for a year. I used the free version for a while and enjoyed how much is included. But I love this application so much I wanted to ensure they got paid for my usage. The features of the paid version are genuinely useful. The recipe import alone is worth every penny. But the meal planning calendar is great, and when you decide to plan a recipe you can send all the ingredients right to your shopping list. I’ve used the pricing and store functions before in the past and it’s very easy and allows you to be more organized while planning. It also auto sorts groceries into categories. So while I am picking out all my fruits and veggies, I can look in that section and grab everything. I’m not searching through the list or missing something and need to go back because I didn’t see it. I use this for a household of two and we use our Alexa to add items to our shared list while going about our days. We also both have the app on our phones and can cross off items while shopping and see it updated in real time on each other’s lists. I couldn’t say enough about how happy I am with this app and will continue to use it and refer others to it as I will not use anything else after this. Thank you to the creators!

My longtime favorite app

I am rewriting and resubmitting my review of the AnyList app. I have been using it faithfully for many years and am so very impressed at how functional it is. AnyList is one of those apps that just keeps getting better and better. I have a separate list of house cleaning/yard work duties that syncs to my son’s iPhone, so I just select which home maintenance items need to be completed — and he uses his view of the list as a guide to get his chores done. I have also created packing lists for everyone in my family. I check-off items and they pack from their lists. When we travel, we have essential items we always need for virtually every destination. These listed items are sorted by room so basically I go down the list from the master bedroom… to the basement selecting the destination’s essential items from each room and pack them immediately. We never forget sunglasses, flip-flops, ski goggles, iPad chargers or underwater cameras etc. Surprisingly, I’ve come to love the recipe section of AnyList. I’ve cooked many of the included recipes and have imported dozens of others and now never run out of creative dinner ideas to cook for my family. With recent updates, the developers have made the recipe section even more functional. These developers are dedicated to making AnyList as useful as possible — plus they are extremely responsive to your questions and requests for new features. This is a great app… one that you will find many, many uses for.
