"Smart shopping list"

Reviewed by / Feb 06, 2013

Grocery Helper - Lite allows you to design your own shopping list

It's time to forget paper and pencil. Shopping list now are smart, since they could be design and viewed from your mobile device. This is the purpose of Grocery Helper. A simple tool to generate shopping list at your whim.

First off, you have to select among all the categories those items you want to buy. Then, you unit must be selected (g, gallons, can, case, etc) as well as the quantity. You also can choose the store where you're going to buy it. By default there are 4: Costco, Sams Club, Walmart and Whole Food. You cannot set the place if you don't want it. Repeat this process with all the items you want to buy. In case there isn't a category or an item in the default list, you can easily add it. Finally, several several shopping list can be created, sorting them by issues, for instance. Lists can be edited at any time, even after generated.

The idea behind this app is really useful. The interface isn't as intuitive as expected. It should be more visual, easy to handle, including photos as well as brand's names.

Grocery Helper has been developed by DoNetIdeas, an emerging developer focused on smart apps that make our day-by-day easier.

    I sent them 3 separate emails about a problem and two suggestions. Within 2 days, they came up with an update that fixes the problem and incorporates my suggestions. These are the best app developers on Google play! I use their other apps, too.
