Jotalicious is a beautifully-designed shopping assistant that turns plain text lists into color-coded checklists of awesome.
It works the way a shopping assistant on your phone should – you create lists just like you are jotting a note to yourself and Jotalicious organizes your lists into sortable, taggable checklists. When Jotalicious finds the name of a place next to an item in your list – for example, "Fresh Herbs @Farmers Market" – it automatically tags and adds the item to a virtual shopping list for that place too.
If typing is just too old school for you, use your device's voice dictation* feature to speak your lists into Jotalicious – say the phrase, "New Line" to separate each item on your list and Jotalicious does the rest.
It's good to share, and with Jotalicious it's even better. Jotalicious is on the spot with AirDrop, AirPrint, text message, and email sharing support. You can send text copies of your lists to anyone or you can share a "jot", which can be imported, complete with tags, by other Jotalicious users. And all of those text lists people send you – or lists you find on your favorite blog or elsewhere – can be pasted into Jotalicious to create new lists effortlessly – just copy text and paste awesome!
Jotalicious is shopping list bliss – after you dictate, paste, or jot your first list, you'll wonder how you ever lived without it.
(*NOTE: Voice Dictation is not available on all devices. If your device supports voice dictation, you will see a microphone icon next to the spacebar when your device displays a keyboard.)

I've tried many…
I have given it a quick test and so far it looks to be just what I want it simple voice dictated and beautiful in one package.
I hope that when I feel like writing my next review on this app thatit will continue to live up to its claims, my initial impressions and continue to improve. But for now, i'm very impressed.
Thank you developer for a nice, intuitive, attractive and most of all useful app.
Shows promise, but missing a couple of features and a little buggy
I end up with duplicate lists each time the lists are shared. Somehow one of the places have also been duplicated so I need to open each when shopping. A couple of really handy features would be to sync between devices without manually sharing and also the ability to add a budget to the lists.
I want to be able to put each of my lists (places) in order or at least be able to drag them in the order I want. I like to have my list in order of the store I’m shopping at. I paid for this app and really want to continue using it, but this issue is VERY frustrating. I can only organize my entire list (weekly groceries).
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
