  1. 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.

    • 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.

        • 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…

              • 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…

                • 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.

                  • You need to find a way to email and/or print shopping lists

                    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.

                      Separate lists (other than iGroup) for Wine/Spirits?

                      Not really food...different. Super group.

                      • fractional quantities

                        love to have fractional quantities. e.g. if i have 1/4 packet of dried macaroni in the pantry I'd like to be able to enter the quantity as 1/4 or 0.25. I don't want to mark it as 0, I'll buy a new one and the 1/4 pack will sit in the pantry forever. But if I leave it as 1, I think I have a full packet then get caught without enough macaroni to make a meal.

                        • When adding to cart, have a save & new button for non-inventory items

                          I tend to add a lot of non inventory items into my cart before I go to the grocery store, such as milk, produce items, etc... I love the quick add button, however you can only add 1 item at a time. I would love to see a new save & new button that would save that item and leave the screen up to add a new item. The current save button would remain or could be renamed to save & close.

                          • Can't do quantities less than 1

                            It's not very helpful when you can't see how much of something is left. For instance, if I have a box of sugar, that's much different than if I have a teaspoon left in a box of sugar.

                              I want to use the barcode scanner feature to scan an empty box of cereal for example and have Prep and Pantry then deplete what's in my pantry by this box of cereal so that I can then see what I need to put on my shopping list.

                              I also would like a way to choose which fields I want to explore it and what order excluding some fields if necessary to import into any recipe software program I have.

                                  Currently you only see the photos associated with items when they are listed in ABC order/view. I would like to see the pictures for each item when they are sorted by expiration date as well (or at least have the option in settings to do this).

                                  • Make Item deletion easier

                                    Hello, It seems like I have to go through 3 different menus in order to delete an Item when an item is no longer available in my physical pantry. And even after deletion, I have to restart the app to see the change. Can you implement an option to hold down an item for 2-3 seconds to get a menu and then delete? and can the deletion be instant? Thanks.

                                    • Automatically assign category and group by category in item list

                                      An alphabetic list of items is useless when I'm shopping in the grocery store because most stores are organized by category not by alphabet.

                                      Many list apps come pre-packaged with categories so when you add an item it gets tagged with the category automatically. For example, when entering "Advil" the app automatically puts it into the "Health and Personal Care" category. It puts "blueberry yogurt" into the "Dairy" category. Then when I'm shopping, I just go category by category in the store.

                                      Thanks!

                                        • Change settings and categories on items automatically through drop down list or toggle

                                          It would be nice to be able to make changes to items without having to press "edit" first and then having to "go back to item page" and then "saving" it's a lot of steps. It should offer saving for initial input of items but then all other following edits and changes should be completed through toggles or drop downs that auto save without the need to specifically edit and then re save each item.
