Ah, ’tis the season to be shopping, and we have an app for that, boy do we apps for shopping; so it was hard to narrow it down to simply two choices, but we did. One app is geared more towards the age-old task of grocery shopping and the other app is more for shopping for individual items. There are so many retailers and so much merchandise, an app to help you sort everything out can save you a lot of time running around and help in making your shopping decisions.
Runner Up – Out of Milk Shopping List
The Out of Milk Shopping List – you have to love this app just because of the name! At first it appears to be a simple, but colorful and complete, shopping list of food items, but as you explore the app you will find that it is so much more than just a means to list the items you need to buy. There is a Local Grocery Deals button that you can push, and it will search for all of the local deals in your zip code. You can create several lists, for instance, one for Trader Joes, one for Target and one for Wal-Mart, etc. When you get to that particular store, your list will be ready for you to look at or share the list with someone else that might be picking up your groceries.
