My husband and I have used ziplist for a while to keep our joint grocery shopping list. It was always buggy -- I could never add to the list he owned from the android app -- and now they've changed from lists to tags on the web app but not the mobile app and the tags don't make sense and aren't sticky and it's not syncing properly and basically it's gone from annoying to unusable.
So now I need a new solution. I don't need or wnat any recipe planning/etc., just a shopping list app that I can add things to one by one. I really liked that ziplist had auto-complete suggestions and (more importantly) automatically grouped entries by category (e.g. frozen, produce, etc.), so I'm loath to just switch to a catch-all to-do app and lose that functionality. It really needs both iPhone & Android apps and to sync nicely. We could probably just share one account/login but it would be better if we could share some lists but not others with each other. And it of course needs to be able to be checked off as we walk through the store and have some sort of "clear all checked" button when we're done.
Does anyone have a solution that they like and works well?
