Shopper - Shopping List App Reviews

Long time shopper app user

My wife and I have been long time shopper app users. I’m sure we don’t use all the features, but the fact that you can share lists makes it super useful. You can add items on the fly while your partner is shopping, and the items will show up right away as soon as they refresh the app. I recently had an issue with one of the lists, and sent a question about it via email. It took a few days because I’m not a gold member, but the response was a very thorough tutorial. Nice customer support shopper! Shopper is one of my most used apps.

Great app, but...

Great shopping app that I’ve used for years now, but it's been many, many, many months, and despite a handful of updates the app still hasn't been upgraded to work correctly on the iPhone X, Xs, or Xs Max. Please fix your app so it works on the new iPhones and understands safe areas. If you’re reading this review on an older phone, I’d definitely recommend this app. If you have a new iPhone with a notch, however, please note that it’s been 11 months since the iPhone X was released, and the developer has totally failed to support that device. I guess I should be used to it, as it also took them nearly a year to support Plus-sized iPhones too. Updated: The latest version now supports iPhone X notched screens, but the updated occurred too late for me. After waiting for nearly a year I finally switched to AnyList.

Long time user

The most recent updates have made it much harder and more confusing to use. Adding a store was easy before, now way too complicated. I’ve decided to just go with one list and put everything in it. Looked for others but didn’t find one as comfortable as previous version of this one.

Very helpful

Customer service was very helpful and quick. It’s awesome to be able to share lists with my husband that we can add to and checkoff in real time. One thing I would love that to add is the ability to have 1 list that I can sort by store. Example: so if I can go to CVS, I can sort a list so I can only see the items that I put on for the store, versus making separate lists for each store or scrolling through my entire list each time.

Does not import & Snap2 Add is not available

I cannot import my 396 items from a different app. When I clicked on Snap2 Add received message that not currently available but working on it. Deleted app from iPhone. Shopping Pro is a good alternative because it imports easily and has one time cost of $2.99.

Awesome app with super pro-active customer support!

I have been using shopper for years. I tried a few others but decided to go with this one. It is so easy to customize your lists and create new ones. I was able to take my own pictures to use as thumbprints on my lists. Pet Supplies has a picture of my best friend, Jack, a rescue Eskipoo. I decided I wanted to move some of my frequently used lists up and others down on the list. I emailed technical support through the app and got a reply within two days. Two days later I got a follow up email to see if I needed anything else. I had a another question followed by more questions. The email replies to my questions were within minutes of each other. This is not the typical customer support for an app. The app gets 5 stars and the technical support gets 6 stars. Unfortunately 5 is the highest I can get. Thank you shopper for you app and great support.


I bought this app years ago and have been using it daily ever since. Had to download a new version for my new phone, and now things don’t work. The app says I have to pay a subscription fee to add new items to my shopping list, or to access my templates. It was great the way it was, without all the bloated features and subscription fees. Response to developer response: No need to get in touch. I’ve moved on to another shopper app and will no longer recommend this to friends. We had a good run. Adiós!!

Watch app is great

Watch app is great. Use it all time.

Almost makes shopping a pleasure

I hate shopping but someone has to do the chore. Shopper saves me a much time composing lists and at the store. The Apple Watch app is a real gem. To top it off the customer support is excellent.

Make shopping easier ... and faster

I’ve used Shopper for several years. When they started to offer a link to my Apple Watch, it got even better! 1st, add shopping items on your iPhone (or Android) from the list of thousands of items or add custom items. When you add items, they are placed in isle order. Once you’ve finished your list, go shopping! Bring it up on your watch and the list is there, in isle order. OR, you can share it with someone else like your spouse. Fantastic AND very easy!


The picture you add yourself should be able to be seen by the item on your list without having to hit on the item to go into the information. Plus it would be really nice if y’all had the internet search for pictures like some apps have had installed of having to save one picture after another on your own photos file !!

Best one out there

I’ve tried them all, and keep coming back to this one. Can’t live without it‼️


Used to love this app but it’s clear the developer is no longer working on the product. No update for iPhone X.


The best shopping list app ever, however, You need to make the laptop version more powerful like the phone version.

Great app

Great app

Really unhappy with the update

The latest update, December-ish 2017, deleted three quarters of my custom items, my isle orders, and added a bunch of new isles (which I spent time deleting only to have them come back the next time I opened the app). I’ve spent years customizing the app for my stores and products, and now it’s all gone. Really unhappy.

Super App!

I literally use this app every single day. I only wish I could sync it with my Gerbes app to make my Gerbes coupons available on Shopper. Other than that, I have been using it since it was “born” and am still in love with it.

This is my most-used app

... and has been for years now. It is truly a part of my everyday life. Can’t say that about many others. Why? 1. Easy to learn/easy to use. HUGE! 2. Auto -organization by category/isle. It just does it for me! And I can refine to match a specific store as well. 3. I create lists for multiple kinds of stores (Hardware, dollar store, Asian market, grocery, Costco, etc) so items to be purchased are always in the right place. 4. Since my phone is always with me, I can always add an item I need to a list at any time and any place. And my lists never get lost - unlike those old paper lists The app is just plain terrific!

Going down hill

This used to be a really great app. But it appears to be going downhill quickly. The developer seems to be more focused on sucking additional revenues out of existing Customers via a new optional monthly subscription fee/feature, rather than making the app more intuitive. I have already paid for this app. I do not want to pay for it again via a subscription service.

Greatest App I Have

I’m a 72 year old male and have struggled with my weight my whole life. I have been on every diet I know of including 2 Hospital diets. I started slow with this app, just keeping a list of what I ate and worked up from there to how I wanted to use it. There’s a learning curve, but keep working with it using & exploring different ways to use it. And you can use it in many ways. It always works, doesn’t lock up, is updated when a new operating system is updated and customer support is GREAT. I use it on my iPhone because I can take it with me, logging as I go. I sincerely recommend this app for loosing OR gaining weight. Or just to make sure you’re eating a good diet. (I’ve used it for several years!) 😊

Very disappointed.

When I wanted to make my shopping list the only options I have now are Share, Add Item and Add Template. I no longer have the option to browse or delete my cart items. The only items I have access to are Favorites and Frequently Used. I used to love this app and now it is useless.

Discriminates on grocery stores

I love this app but I can't use the new store aisle feature because 2 of the 3 major grocery stores are not listed. Tire stores, restaurants, but not Shaw's or Hannaford. You cannot contact customer service because they do not give you the email. Maybe I should look for another app.

Time saving

Saves me a lot of time when shopping. No more paper lists.

all that i need

this app does everything it needs to do. after trying several similar apps i find this one the best. outstanding shopping list! very pleased.

Thank you!

Works great on iOS 11!

Useful app

Very easy to use and very helpful

Love this app!

I use this app all the time for grocery shopping. I have mild dementia so it is just a life saver! It probably has features that I don't even know about!

Great service

I have been using the app for years and a couple of features I was looking for I could not find. I email support and they got back to me quickly with the answers I needed! Awesome!

Best feature is ability to customize stores

I've been using Shopper for a long time, look at the new apps and haven't found anything better. It does all the usual shopping app stuff but one feature sets it apart from the rest--the ability to customize the aisle layout for different grocery stores. When you get to the store, select the store and all the categories and items in your shopping list are resorted for that store. No one else does this!


Not perfect but it works for me.

Where did my lists go?

Imagine how surprised 😳 was to get to the grocery store and find out that when my app was updated ...everything in my cart, my shopping lists and list of stores was gone!!! What the heck! This is just a bad decision on your part to not include everything in the older version. Now I'm starting from scratch to build it all back up again with another app.


I love it

Best shopping app

Great versatility. Very user friendly with lots of customizable options. GREAT support if help is needed. I've tried other shopping apps in the past and this is the best one by far.


Its a really nice app, I actually make list :)

Great app for shopping and recipes

I love this app for 3 main reasons. First, it lets me create template lists, which I use these for specific stores and recipes. That way, I can have a default list of products I usually buy at specific a store, and I simply uncheck the ones I don't need that day. Or if I'm making one of my frequent recipes, I just select that template and it adds everything to my shopping list. Second, it intelligently combines if 3 different recipes call for garlic, it will add up the total number of cloves in my shopping list. And third, it organizes everything by aisle/department, which you can further customize to match the layouts of your stores. It has made dinner and party planning so much easier for me!

Love it

Use it all the time. It's the best!

Bloatware you pay twice for

A bloated, cumbersome, kludgy app that does not even do half of what is claimed. Paid once early on in hopes of supporting the developer. Then left by same for the 'promise' of more money by insisting I pay again for ad-free service. Product itself is devoid of redeeming features and an excel spreadsheet would be better. Do not use, do not like.


I love this app. I use it all the time for all types of shopping-groceries, hardware, pharmacy, etc. I can add items to the appropriate list as I think of things. The only thing I would ask for would be to make it a little harder to delete items from your list as you shop. I usually leave my list open, but have accidentally deleted things I needed while moving my phone. Other than that, this is one of my most used apps. Thank you!

I have start to love shopping

I just love this app. Comparing prices in different stores help me to save money on daily basis. I just make different shopping list for every store and put items in basket while shopping. Also I already know how much will cost me my trip to the store. Great help and great app. I hope it will be even better during the time.


This app helps me a lot to organize my shopping.

Shopper Review 5 stars

I love this App!!! I never lose my list and even have lists for weekly visits to the grocers.

Awesome Customer Support

My husband and I really rely on Shopper to help us remember what's needed when one of us is at the store. Sunday afternoon I accidentally deleted a list and panicked. Sent an email immediately, and by Monday morning it had already been restored!

My favorite list

I've used Shopper for seven years. I've written to them on occasion and they have always been responsive and helpful - even to the point of changing the app. I've looked at others and there are some nice features - particularly related to inventory - but those require significant manual updating. Shopper has the most useful features for me.

My Favorite App

I've used this app for a few years and continue to use it daily. The latest release works great.

Great app

Best shopping list app in the market!

Great app--updated to 5 stars!

I love this app and live by it for so many things. It's incredibly easy to use and customize, and it makes price comparisons so easy. Customer Service is incredibly responsive and helpful! At one point, a couple of years ago, I had written the following: "However, previously when typing items for the lists, all words began automatically with a capital letter. In a recent update, that went away, and I am now faced with having to painstakingly go back and capitalize every word in a new item I have created. Bring back the auto-caps!" That issue was corrected within a couple of days! Really superior app!

Please fix

I have loved and used this app for years!! It's so simple and convenient!! However after the last update the app will no longer open. Please fix it!! I've shopped for others and but love this one!! Can't wait to get it back!!

Love the app but it's now unusable!

We have loved the ability to create shopping lists and share between the two of us. But on both of our iPhones, after the update, the app crashes immediately after opening. If there is no update soon, we'll be forced to look for another solution. Two other improvements that are mute without the crash fix: updates from one phone to another takes too long. Frequently one user is finished shopping before the list finally updates. And it'd be nice to delete misspelled items even from a list created by the other phone. Otherwise, one users lax typing skills becomes the other users OCD nightmare. Both our phones are on iOS 9.

App not working after update

I love this app and have used it for years. Unfortunately after getting the latest update yesterday, it will close immediately every time I open it. Hoping this can be fixed soon.
