Excellent app! Changed the way we grocery shop

No more getting to the grocery store and realizing you forgot to bring list. My husband and I have been using the OurGroceries app for many years. We absolutely love it. It’s not glitchy or weird. It does everything it’s supposed to.

We love that it updates instantly in real time. We can be at the grocery store together in two different parts of the store or we can be at two separate grocery stores. If one of us marks something off or adds something on a list, the other one sees it instantly. We have a list for each of the grocery stores that we shop in. Multiple family members can share the account. Paying the small price to remove ads is worth it because you can scan barcodes to add things into your database of things you buy. You can create categories for the items in your personal database of groceries. We had a categories like personal care, frozen food, cold food, canned food, etc. that makes it easier to find things and add them to a list. Highly recommended! One of those game-changer apps that you didn’t even know you needed nearly as badly as you do.

Love it, BUT please, please allow different categories per each shopping list

This is by far the most useful app I have. It is easy to use and intuitive. I love that I can add ingredients from my recipes and just click the one item that I am out of and it goes straight to my shopping list. It saves me so much time.

It would be amazing if the developers could find a way to allow you to change the categories for the individual items on different lists. For example I have grocery store list and a Target list. My categories are set up for me to easily find the item at Grocery store, but they don’t work for Target. For example, at Grocery store “dairy free cream cheese” would be categorized in the “Dairy” section, but at Target it would be categorized in the “fresh fruit/veggie” section of the store. The categories perfectly align to speed up my shopping at the Grocery store, but for Target it is a disorganized mess. I would love if when I got to select my item “dairy free cream cheese” it would offer the two options “Target list, fresh veggie category”” and “Grocery store, dairy section”.

The Teaman ,

One of the best I’ve tried

I like a grocery app that has both a phone and a watch app. This one has that and does it fairly well. Going through the store checking your watch is easier than pulling your phone in and out and turning it on and off. This app lets you categorize products and it remembers the categories once you set them. It lets you add the same product to multiple store lists. I love the look of the app and it’s instant sync functionality.

The areas of improvement the maker should address is that I find the flow for the addition of groceries to be clunky. It would be nicer if you could start to type an item select from the matching list and straight away specify how many and the category ( if it’s uncategorized ) without having to navigate around into the info screen for the product.

I also find myself accidentally touching products to get to that information screen and instead it removes it from the list. This is counterintuitive. They should use a check box or a swipe left or right to remove the item from the list, which is more conventional. If you don’t wanna change now that you have a base of users, at least make it a preference setting for the newcomers.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for the feedback!

There are settings for both things you asked for. Look for the setting "When Adding Uncategorized Item", which you can set to "Ask Me to Pick a Category" (or try the new "Pick a Category for Me" option which will pick a category automatically if possible). Read more here: https://www.ourgroceries.com/user-guide#settings_ask_for_category

For crossing off items inadvertently, you can fix this using the "Cross-off Action" setting, which has several choice besides a simple tap. Try "Swipe", for example. Read more here:

I hope these settings will help! Feel free to contact us at support@ourgroceries.com with any other questions or feedback for a faster response.
