Grocophile is a simple and efficient application to streamline creating a shopping list and organizing your shopping for the stores where you shop. You can share your lists and other data across iPhone and iPod Touch devices, making it simple and quick to share the work of shopping.

Your grocery list is sorted by your store's aisles so that you can cruise through the store aisle-by-aisle in order, no more wandering through the store to find the groceries you missed on your first pass through the aisles. If you're in a store that you haven't entered into Grocophile, sort your list by groups so that similar items are together in the list. You'll be amazed at how much your shopping experience is improved over scanning through a paper list repeatedly as you navigate the aisles.

As you shop, you can easily mark off items you've collected with a single tap and hide completed items from the list so you can focus on the remaining items as your list gets shorter. Completed items can be unhidden in case you want to double-check your cart.

Quickly build your shopping list from a custom list of the items you buy with your specific preference for brand, variety, size, etc. You have full control of every category and item, no screen area is wasted with items you don't buy. No more scrolling through thousands of built-in items, the vast majority of which do not apply to your shopping habits. Drag to reorder categories, items, stores, and aisles so you find items right where you want them to be.

Increase or decrease quantities simply by tapping on the item, or enter a custom quantity or measure.

It's easy to enter aisle information for the stores you shop at by group or by individual item. You can take a few minutes to enter aisles for your store, or simply assign aisles as you pick items from the shelf. You can have your list instantly reorder based on which store you are shopping at with just a couple of taps. Mark items that aren't carried in a specific store to help you decide where you need to shop to complete the list. Sort the list by categories to make it easy to shop even when you're in an unfamiliar store.

Share your shopping list with others via email and share all of your customized data with other Grocophile-enabled devices via WiFi or through a shared Dropbox account. Multiple people can share the work of creating lists and doing the shopping; just transfer your shopping data from one iPhone or iPod Touch to another.

Great App

I have been using this app for several weeks. I love it. It is easy to use, easy to add new items, easy to create store layouts, and easy to create my shopping list.

Best Grocery List App

I have used this app for years and I have not found a better one. It’s simple looking without distracting graphics, functional, and saves me a ton of time each time a go to the store. It doesn’t have prices which are impossible to keep updated but it does have multiple stores, each with its own aisles or departments or how ever you want to set each one up.

Some pointers. Take the time to enter the aisle numbers for your primary store(s) in the order you prefer to shop. Then when you are at the store you can update new items in the database to the correct aisles. This will take some time at first but it’s worth it. Over time you will have added most of the items you usually purchase. Then when shopping time comes, it’s one pass through the store marking off the items as you grab them. This app consistently helps reduce my shopping time while ensuring I don’t forget items.

Another pointer is for your less visited stores where you get a few items don’t bother setting up aisles. Instead create two aisles and In Store and Not In Store. Set the Not In Store aside to invisible. Then when you are ready to shop at that store look over your shopping list and set the appropriate aisle for each item, in store/not in store (invisible) and you will have a clean shopping list just for that store. Again over time you’ll have do less and less of this data entry and get to spend your time shopping efficiently.

Don’t let the last update date scare you off. The developer has created a bug free program that doesn’t need updating all the time. It works great on iOS 14.

Best grocery app, hands down

I looked at nearly every grocery app I really liked this one but was turned away by the high price. After buying a cheaper dud, I came back to Grocophile and I'm glad I did. The pre-loaded categories and items are, as with all of these grocery apps, useless - but at least there are only a few so they can quickly be deleted and replaced.

Being able to assign both a category and an isle to each item is exactly what I was looking for. Now I have each item arranged by category according to how they're stored in my kitchen, and I can zip up and down the isles in no time.

The interface is pretty simple and straight-forward - no useless "features" like item photos or prices (who can keep up with grocery store prices anyway?). The only thing I don't use in this app is the list sharing, though I can see how it might be useful for couples who share shopping responsibilities.

My only suggestion would be to make it easier to distinguish items that are already in the cart (i.e. a checkmark, cross-out, or lighter gray), and that when in "hide" mode, items automatically disappear when tapped.
