Other Comments

I use this app to share shopping lists with my mom and we can either use the app or the website to create and edit lists, and the changes appear on everyone's phone instantly. I haven't used the website extensively but so far it seems accessible too. I've created different lists for different stores, and also organized the items by category. This would also be a useful app for to do lists, chores, Christmas lists, etc. To cross an item off your list, just double tap it and it then moves to a section at the bottom. You can double tap the item again and it will move from the crossed out section back to your main list.

I was happy with this app on my IPhone, but the website accessibility is great too. It becomes so much more than just an app for shopping lists!

The recipe feature turns this list app into a mobile cookbook. It's so simple! Once you add ingredients to a recipe and save it, all you have to do is add that recipe to your shopping list and all the ingredients are added to your list at once. I also realized that you could use the notes section within each recipe to add the preparation instructions, so that you not only have a great app for shopping lists, but also a personal cookbook.

yes, add a photo to the item, that's exactly what i need, but it requires in-app purchase. so before i buy it, has any of you use the add photo feature? how VO friendly is it? thanks.
