  1. Editing of Item Name

    Hi, I'm totally in love with this app and upgraded to the full version. I've noticed editing item name has been a chore. It doesn't allow user to enter a word or phrase continuously. But rather, we have to painfully enter a word slowly letter/punctuation/symbol by letter. The keyboard will go missing once a letter/punctuation/symbol has been entered. Please kindly fix this issue. Thank you.

    • Provide option for shopping list to be sorted by Tag

      This app is useless as a shopping list without the ability to arrange the list by store section, aisle or similar.

      • Pictures

        Having pictures of product without having to take it yourself. I know that there is a look up that has them.

        • Horrible Support

          It would be great if there was any follow-up to support requests. Unfortunately, other than an email that indicates "I reply to every email personally and I will get back to you soon!", that's the extent of the follow-up. Ever since Mark Patrick Media purchased the app from the original developer, support and development have become non-existent. Well, another good app bites the dust.

          • Inventory mode

            I was wondering if you were thinking about an "inventory" mode. This mode would let you go thru your supplies and then provide a report where you can see what may have been taken out of inventory without updating the app.

            • ad hoc report that could be run at the end of the week/month to show total quantities of items used

              Could you, perchance, come up with an ad hoc report that could be run at the end of the week/month to show total quantities of items used out of the pantry? I'm trying to keep close track of this, along with food expenditures, since I am on limited income and also use SNAP benefits. TIA. Karen Day-Lyon

              • Error Alert This device cannot make purchases.

                Dear Sir/Madam,

                I purchased a upgrade to pro from my iPad. Now I want to restore this on my iPhone.

                On the iPhone I get the following message:
                Alert
                This device cannot make purchases.

                This device can make purchases. Only not from your app.

                Will this error be fixed on the shorter or longer time period.

                I like the app. It is just easier to use my iPhone in the pantry.

                After making the upgrade I saw a full version (without the in-app upgrade). Why not remove the upgrade function and redirect to de full version, than can import the…

                  Unable to sync as the apps cannot connect to server, have emailed developer both directly and through the support site, 2 months later still no contact. I upgraded to the full app to use the sync function!

                  • Add an optional max value to an article

                    Add an optional max value to an article. Use this max value to calculate the needed value in the chart.

                    Ex.: Article A has a stock value of 2, a minimum value of 3 and a max value of 8. The system now calculates the chart and adds article a with a needed value of 6 (8-2).

                    With this feature you can easily manage long term stocks. When I want to have a minimum stock of 6 month of an article, I buy 8 month of supply. The minimum value is set to the 6 month amount and I automatically…

                      I have been trying for weeks to create a group, but it times out when contacting the server every single time. I've tried contacting not support through email only to have the email undeliverable each time I try!

                                  • I would Love it if I could also have it run on your website.

                                    I would love it if I could also run this app on your website. If I lost my phone or the battery was dead or organizing and moving around all my prepper gear or even working with this with other people trying to crowd around a phone so we can see is hard.

                                    If you had this I would pay a small monthly fee like $5.00 a month and you could make alot for $$ than a one time app fee.

                                      Would really like to see the expired list by tag. So I can just look at the list of items tagged "cereal" in order of when they expire.

                                      • Area under categories for notes

                                        I have put a lot of time into pricing different types of items to find the best deals. It would be great to have a notes area for example under the "green beans" category to record the lowest price I found. That way, when the category gets added to my shopping list, I can easily see the price I want to look for. I know there is an area in the shopping list to add notes, but as I add and remove stuff from my list, I would constantly have to retype the same info.

                                          Please support the capability to email shopping lists. The group sharing function is incredibly antiquated and glitchy, and without being able to share shopping lists I find that this app is completely useless to me and all of my family members who spent good money on this app.
