Review: Shopping Pro for iPhone and iPad

Screen Shot 2013-01-07 at 10.01.27 AMWe just found a great new iPad app that was just released a few days ago. This app comes to you from the developer Quinn Genzel and the iPad app is called Shopping Pro (Grocery List). This is one of the best iPad apps for creating your digital grocery & shopping list.

I’ve used the iOS Reminders App but it lacks some of the functionality I wanted. Shopping Pro has a nice user interface and is really well thought out so it is easy to navigate on the fly. It also has a built-in iCloud auto-sync which allows multiple users to share, modify and shop whenever and wherever they are. Shopping Pro architecture is built on the foundation of Packing Pro, the #1-ranked travel app.(Screenshots after the break)

The following features are from the iTunes app store description:

♦ CREATE unlimited, 100% user-customizable shopping lists
♦ BUILD lists quickly & easily with multi-item selection from Master Catalog
♦ EDIT your lists however you wish (add, delete, rename or reorder any category or item)
♦ MULTI-EDIT your items (delete, move, copy or set tax) more quickly than one-by-one
♦ DISCOVER new ideas & suggestions from included sample lists
♦ USE any list (sample or your own) as a template for future lists
♦ MONITOR a running tally of total vs checked items per category
♦ COLLAPSE categories for less scrolling & better management
♦ SHOW only items that are checked or unchecked, or show them all
♦ SORT items manually or automatically by type or item
♦ EDIT item details (name, number, unit, price, tax & notes)
♦ TAX items with app-wide default tax or per-item tax (both optional)
♦ VIEW the price & tax totals of all items on your list & in your cart
♦ SUBTOTAL the prices & taxes of all items in each category (both on-list & in-cart)
♦ SEE remaining items as badge on app icon
♦ EMAIL your lists to family & friends
♦ CUSTOMIZE the Master Catalog with 100% freedom (add, delete, rename & reorder any category, type or item)
♦ SELECT from over 1500 items for quick list generation with only minimal typing
♦ DEFINE your own categories, types & items for more customized freedom & control
♦ COPY & MOVE types & items throughout catalog
♦ MULTI-EDIT your types & items (delete, move, copy or set tax) more quickly than one-by-one
♦ CLONE categories
♦ VIEW comfortably on new iPads, iPod touches, iPhone 5 & other devices running iOS 5 or 6
♦ USE Favorites folder for quick access to common items
♦ IMPORT & EXPORT lists & Master Catalog (or parts of them) between lists, apps or devices
♦ REFER to a comprehensive in-app help guide

We think you’ll get a lot of use out of this productivity app for list-making and shopping. This app is available for $2.99 on the app store by clicking here.

Been an iPad user from day one of its release. Apple has been innovative from the beginning and now the rest of the world is getting on board. It's great to be able to spread the word about one of their mobile devices.
