A Couple Suggestions
I’m a new user...as in, I’m actually still trying to figure out the whole system. So far, I like it. I was a GroceryIQ user for probably 6-8 years, and I believe that app is being discontinued. This is the closest thing I’ve been able to find to that app in terms of store, category and item organization. I have two requests/suggestions, however. The first is that a weight option be added to pricing. I use the price by weight tool for cheeses, meats, and some produce. Being able to price things according to weight will help keep the accuracy of my overall budget when shopping. My second suggestion is a reverse info input on barcode scanning- right now, from what I can tell, the scanner either knows the barcode or doesn’t. The feature to add UPC codes to the item info is helpful, but it would also be neat to be able to scan and, if the barcode is unknown, immediately be able to fill in the necessary information for the product. That way the user doesn’t have to manually add the UPC numbers. So far, this is the most comprehensive shopping list app that I have been able to find, and I appreciate the features it already has- especially the option to add or remove sales tax (we don’t have sales tax on groceries in CA). If the developers are looking for new features to add, I think the price-by-weight and reverse barcode input would be two great ones to add.

Categories appear to be fixed
Love this cleanly designed and easy-to-use grocery list that I can add items to whenever I happen to remember them. After using this app for years, I was getting very frustrated with some category issues mentioned by other reviewers. I started looking for other solutions, but this app still looks nicer and functions better for this purpose than any of the other grocery list or regular list apps I tried. I agonized over what to do, since this really affects my workflow. I finally created a new account on Out of Milk and started fresh. When I started out I had no categories, so I added my own and so far so good. It seems that the developers released an update before they really should have, but that the category issues have finally been fixed. I like having a separate app just for groceries, because I need different functions than on my regular to-do list. The only wish I have is that the to-do list section, which I'm not even using, be turned into some type of menu planning tool, which I would absolutely use. I tried another app that lets you store recipes and make menu plans, but it was cumbersome and ugly. I really don't need to store recipes because it would take too long to constantly add new ones (I like to try new things, so I'm not an "every Tuesday we have tacos" kind of cook). However, it would be nice to have a basic calendar where I could just list what I plan to cook each day.
A couple suggestions
I’ve been a GroceryIQ user for 8 years but that doesn’t work any longer with iOS 14 on my iPhone. So I needed to find a replacement. I tried several list apps and Out of Milk was the winner! It most closely resembles all the features of what I was used to. I have a couple suggestions to help make it even greater. Could the items on the list be sorted in alphabetical order within the categories? I buy a lot of produce weekly for my family and I often can’t recall if I’ve added a particular item. It would make searching through what is already on the list so much easier if the categories were sorted alphabetically instead of last added on top. The second suggestion would be to be able to create a “favorites” list and move items from that list to the grocery list. I found it useful to have an all encompassing list of all the items we buy regularly and be able to scan through that list to make sure I didn’t forget to check on the quantity on hand for this week’s list.
