Ultimate Shopping List: Written Android App Review
When we talk about productivity applications for the Android platform, we’re often left with a much shorter list than one might find on the iOS side of the coin. However, as the years go on more and more developers are closing the gaps with real-life apps that meet our needs. A fine example of this happening in real-time is Ultimate Shopping List by developer Custom Mobile Apps Australia. The title makes it easily ten times simpler to manage your shopping lists, no matter what it is that you’re in need of or where you’re going to get it. We like what it has to offer a lot, and for our full review, you need only to look below the break.
Concept and Functionality
In a manner similar to other productivity apps like Remember the Milk, Ultimate Shopping List makes it quick and simple to setup lists of items you’re in need of, and then mark them off as you collect them in the store. However, Ultimate Shopping List introduces a few additional points we’re fond of. For instance, it will easily handle multiple quantity items, which can save a lot of time for the busy shopper. Likewise, it will also keep an handle on purchase dates, allowing you to revisit your purchasing information at any point in the future. It’s also got a pre-made wheel of common items, which means you can very rapidly enter in the sort of stock grocery items you commonly go out for. If you need to enter your own items, though, you’re of course free to do so. And lastly, Ultimate Shopping List allows you to keep as many lists open as you like: An handy tool for those with a busy day’s errands ahead of them!
Graphics and Design
However, we do have a few design complaints to throw into the mix. For instance, the spinning wheel of common needs isn’t quite as fluid to work with as we might like, as there’s no way to jump by alphabet to the item you want. We also had some sizing issues on our phone—a standard HTC variety. Lastly, we had the occasional problem with the swipe-to-mark-purchased feature: Occasionally, it just wouldn’t register our finger motions. However, for the most part Ultimate Shopping List looks brilliant, functions beautifully, and is an head and shoulder above its Android competitors.
And besides, how hard can we be on an app that costs only a dollar in the Android Market? Ultimate Shopping List is certainly a value, and as stated, it’s perhaps the best shopping list manager available for Android to-date. We like what it has to offer, and as future updates iron out some of the kinds, we can only see Ultimate Shopping List’s future getting bigger, brighter, and better. Best jump on it now, while it’s still only a dollar!
