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.
Fantastic app for groceries!
I had been looking for a new app to organize and make a grocery list for awhile. I have a family a 5 so our list is huge by the time I need to go shopping. This app categorizes the foods and other household essentials into their proper areas. So when I’m at the store and in the dairy area for example I can get everything I need from that area easily. You are also able to easily check off your items or delete them from the list entirely.
Also there’s an option in the app where you can keep your phone screen awake while you shop. I love this because I frequently need to use my calculator to keep a total. The app does let you price each item and you also can choose to add sales tax for a total however I prefer to price in store because typically I don’t know what the exact price is.
Finally, this app also includes a pantry list and a to do list. I really recommend this app to definitely anyone who has a large family and that is looking for a good app to keep things organized!
