I absolutely hate grocery shopping, so I’m willing to try just about anything that will make the task easier. Using the Grocery Gadget Shopping List iPhone app is a good start.

While the app primarily acts as a basic digital list, it has some cool features such as allowing you to attach photos to items on your list and remembering where things are in the grocery store.

Perhaps the best part of Grocery Gadget Shopping List is that you can share lists with other iPhone users so that multiple people can edit them. Comparison shoppers can also enter prices and make notes to see if they are paying too much for a particular item.

As is the case with many apps that have multiple features, it can take a little while to master Grocery Gadget Shopping list. It was a bit buggy for me as well. At least twice it shut down in the middle of me compiling my list. Not cool.

Grocery Gadget Shopping List costs $4.99 to download, although you can obtain a free version that saves one list and 20 items. The free edition is designed to get you familiar with all the features the app has to offer. Still, I strongly advise that you to try the free version first because this is an app that will take some getting used to.

Despite the learning curve and issues I experienced, this is an ambitious app that even caused me to have a new-found respect for the shopping experience. There is definitely enough here to justify the price, and though it will not make the grocery shopping experience truly pleasurable for me, it at least can make it tolerable.
