  • Simplifies shopping and meal planning

    By Oak maple
    I used the free version at first and found it saved me time and effort and finally upgraded to the full version. Boy, am I glad I did! It is easy to input favorite recipes and even segregate by store. This app is intuitive and actually useful. (I despise apps that require a steep learning curve before you can derive any benefit from them.)
  • Love it

    By peanut6567
    Im so impressed with this app. So much packed into the free one. The recipe feature is amazing! I upgraded to the premium @$7.99 a year. Well worth the money
  • Terrific

    By AcornMan
    Considering how simple the concept is, it’s baffling to me why it’s so difficult to find a good shopping list app that can be easily shared with other family members. I downloaded TWELVE different apps, and every one of them had major flaws. This is literally the only one that has all the features my family needs. I also like the recipe feature. Overall, it’s a great app.
  • I have been using this app for 3 years

    This app is my favorite app to create a database of recipes and to meal plan. There is no other app like it in the app market place.
  • Delete All, With No Undo

    By mrwhatdoIknow
    First, this is a good app. In fact, it's the best grocery app I've used. However ... Second, the app has the ability to Delete All items, right below the Delete Crossed out items. If you accidentally (and I've stupidly done it twice) hit Delete All items, it will delete ALL items. (duh) It will delete them forever. Because, there is no undo for this action. This ability to completely wipe out your entire list (forever and ever) can (and probably will) make your experience very frustrating. If the developer comes up with a way to address this black-hole event, then I'd give this app the highest rating possible for a shopping list app. I had rated it 5 stars, but then I deleted all the stars and now I can't undo it. (ha ha) And yes, I did send feedback to the developer to address this issue. Hopefully they will and I can stop talking about this experience with my analyst.
  • My most favorite app ever!!!

    By Cabubba
    I recently found myself to be a single dad… I had no real experience with cooking or grocery shopping. This app has been nothing short of amazing! It is literally my most favorite app that I have on my phone. I use it for grocery shopping and I’ve even begun to create other lists unrelated to groceries because it’s List making features work better then any other organizational app that I have. On several occasions I thought to myself “I wish the app could do this“ only to find later that it does in fact already do that. I highly recommend this app whether you are a new student to grocery shopping and cooking or an experienced one.
  • Update

    By Laumak13579
    Please move the menu back to the bottom instead of the side!! The list is way too narrow now. **i was able to get it to move back by playing with some settings
  • Great App

    By LuAnn001
    Been trying to find a friendly user app for my husband as he does the grocery shopping and this is it!! So easy to use and excellent customer service. You have to buy the premium to get the full use but well worth it because you can share it as a family. We are very satisfied
  • Top Notch App

    By Som1else
    One of the best apps on my phone. AnyList is intuitive and simple to use yet filled with many great features. Although it has recipe and meal planner capabilities, it's not limited to groceries. I found it works perfect for all my lists. And adding items is as simple as holding the home button and telling Siri to add whatever it is to your list. You can have as many different lists as you want and can organize them by folders if you have a lot. And probably my favorite feature is how quickly and seamlessly it syncs with shared lists. If you share lists with anyone else, this is the app to get. AnyList is a top notch app and nicely thought out.
  • New features are amazing!!!

    By Ikesa07
    It is still the app I use most. It's super easy to copy recipes from just about any link. I loooove the meal planning. I have the premium subscription and it's so worth the yearly fee.
