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.
Very useful, awkward categories
My wife and I have been using the app for a while. It’s very useful, with several features we haven’t explored yet, but the categories feature really needs some work. I had shared categories as well as ones I created my own and somehow ended up with loads of duplicates (4 “Dairy”, 3 “Produce”, etc). I tried to Manage Categories to delete the dupes, but the categories can’t be viewed alphabetically, which complicated matters (no idea how they’re being sorted now), and after I did delete all the duplicates — everything not shared — all the deleted categories still appear in the menu I see when I try to edit an item’s category, making Manage Categories pretty useless. I’m disabling categories for now to avoid the frustration, but the category list to select from really needs to update to match the Manage Categories screen. Sorry to focus on a negative, but it’s my biggest trouble with the app since all attention spent on categories for easier shopping ends up being wasted time. Thanks!
