Shopper - Grocery List, Shopping List and Recipes App Reviews

0 add

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.


Keep on improving!


This app helps me a lot to organize my shopping.

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 :-)

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.

Awesome shopping app

This is one of my fav apps. I have used it since it first came out. It is easy to use and easy to organize your list into the isles of the store. The more you use it, the quicker it is to organize your list and get going to the store because it saves what you put in for organization. I like that I can have multiple store lists and I can email and share my list with my husband when I need to. Customer service is great as well if you have any questions, suggestions or issues with the app. Great app for a busy life!!


This app is exactly what I've been looking for!

Love it!! So useful!!

I love this app and use it every week to do my grocery shopping. It help me stay on budget too because I can enter the price of item so when I'm Making my list I can easily see about how much I'm gonna spend before I go up to the register. I also love that you can share it with other people so if I'm can't make it to the store for what ever the reason may be I can send it to my husband to have him pick everything up. My kids also love being in charge of "checking off" each item as we put it in the cart. I would defiantly recommend this app to everyone!

Great app

This is a great shopping list application that allows you to create different lists for different stores and share those lists with other family members. This makes it easy for everyone to add items to the grocery list.

You have to buy it?

I find free apps that aren't available until you buy them in-app terribly deceptive. You can only use the phone portion of the app for free as a "trial" user. Removed immediately.

Terrible App Upgrades

Use to work perfectly. Now items that are put on individual lists aren't merged together. I've seen very few apps regress but this is one. Don't buy from this developer.

Get this app!!

My wife and I share a list. It's great to just add an item when you think of it and have the ability to bring it up while in the store. This has changed the way I organize my shopping lists, for the better!

What happened

Cannot add a new list, and some of my lists disappeared! Not happy

Very useful

Very useful app.

New version deleted my grocery list

I've had this app for years and it's worked OK. But I am furious that with the new update the grocery list I have been working with an editing since 2009 was deleted. All kinds of items that I had carefully scanned in and photographed the items for easy identification entered in over the past seven years – vanished! What's the point? Now I have to go and rebuild the list from scratch. I can hardly believe it!! Every other list I've created is still there. Lists that aren't as important. But the one that is crucial – the one I got this app for in the first place is missing. 😡


I used this app for years happily, recently it doesn't sync between my iPad and my iPhone. It won't open up in the store to show me my list, instead shows me recipes I don't want. Lost recent list.


Excellent app!

Id be lost without it ...

Very simple to use but really you can do a lot with it if you want.

BAD update. Do not use!

I loved this app - now I hate it. I would rather use pencil and paper than try to navigate the latest updated version. It used to be a great app. Now I figure they are writing their own reviews because it is such a mess I do not understand how anyone can find it useful. Time to find a new shopping app!

Great app, super useful

Agree with my wife. :). Very easy to use but has all i can imagine needing. Highly recommended, definite must have app.

Great app

This is one of my most used apps. I add stuff I need all week long, then use it in the store. I've customized the aisles and put them in the order I like to grab things in. It makes everything super efficient. The one and only time I had an issue with the app, customer support was very responsive.

Was an awesome and easy app to use

Now it's way too much. I don't care about most of the stuff they have added and now they have become a burden. Just give me my grocery list. Can you make it any harder to sync with my husband? Don't think so.

Paid for this but seeing ads still!

On top of this app never being stable and their website being utter crap, they now shove ads back into their PAID app! This 'company' and its absentee employees do not deserve your money.

Love the app, but the glitch...

I really love this app. I've been using it for years. However there is one glitch that's happened recently that really bugs me. When I go to type in the notes section in order to be more specific in what I want, I'll be halfway through typing, sometimes completely through even but haven't hit 'done' yet, and all that I typed goes away and I have to start over again. I've never had to retype more than twice but this is such a nuisance. When that gets fixed I'll be happy to change my star rating.


I don't know how I managed before I found this app. With Shopper all members of the household can add to the list and whoever draws the shopping chore has an up-to-date list to use with no hassle.


Excellent replacement for Grocery Gadget.

LOVE this app!

I think I've probably used this app since it was first available. I do a TON of grocery shopping, and I can't live without Shopper. I've had two major snafus-- both MY fault. I accidentally deleted stuff completely to the point of rendering it useless. Both times CUSTOMER SERVICE WAS FANTASTIC. They had to figure out what I was trying to tell them, etc., but they took the time to do it really fast. They restored everything, and both times it was back to working like a charm. Doing the initial set up is totally worth the time to use this app.

Agree, used to be great

Have used this for years but with last update has annoying tendency if you're typing a note and pause for a second it thinks you're done and backs you out. Sometimes I have to try 3 times to complete a note.

What's happened to Shopper?

This WAS a very useful app. My wife and I share a large list of items at our local store, and as the week goes on one or the other will select items from that list we need. Then we'd both go to the store on opposite sides and as we picked up items we'd delete them from the cart. Worked beautifully- until recently. Now the shared updates are slow and unreliable and funky things happen like selection going into two carts. Roll "improvements" back about a year would be my wish

Great shopping app

This app is a great way to store and manage multiple shopping lists, which is the critical feature for me. I'd give it five stars if only there were more non-grocery products in the built-in lists of items to add to lists. No nails or other very common household/tool items, no alcohol for a liquor store list, etc. Please add for people who use shopping lists for other than a grocery store! Thanks!
