    Looking for a grocery list app

    I'm looking for an app that'll allow me to create a grocery list. Something that I can check off as things are gotten. Any suggestions?

    Check out Ilium's (www.iliumsoft.com) for Listpro.

    Synchronize?

    I like ListPro but as far as I know, the smartphone version iwll not synchcronize with the desktop.

    Does anyone run ListPro on the desktop and will it synchronize with the Q?

    Thanks,

    John

    No, it does not sync. Read the help file. I have also spoken with someone from Iliumsoft and they confirmed it does not sync. They are working on that for a new version.

    The only way to get lists from your Q to your Desktop is to open up Windows Explorer and copy / paste the file.

    I used the desktop application of ListPro with my Palm Treo in the past and it was a beautiful integration. However, like the previous poster said, it currently does not sync with the Q. You'll have to save the desktop file over manually to you Q. Try SplashShopper. It IS a shopping list program and comes preloaded with a huge shopping lists which you can then customize. I'm not knocking ListPro though because it is a great list program. But, if you only need a shopping list you might want to check out SplashShopper (grocery and other shopping lists included).

    I stand corrected - sorry for the oversight.

    I created a category called groceries in my Papyrus To-Do List. But, I'm curious Tony, do you use Listpro as your To-Do List program? Do you have another to do list program like Papyrus or Extreme Agenda? How is this different or better?

    I wish at least one of these would give you the ability to calculate with tax on some items but not all.
    I did find a program that lets you build databases. You can link fields, do pretty complex calculations, and a bunch of other stuff. Kinda hard to justify if you just need a shopping list, but for my two businesses it has become invaluable. Their smartphone platform is definately in the beta stage, but I'm having fun with it, and find new uses for it every day.
  15. I have been using listpro for my to do list more and more.
    its fast, simple and effective....
    easy to customize lists...

    This also works with Jott so that you can call the list items to yourself and not have to type. (Great if driving)

    In the Palm OS version of Splash Shopper, you could enter the tax rate and apply that to all items or just the items you select. Have not tried the WM version, but bet it is the same.

    I had to double check my SplashShopper & it does calculate the tax. I'm so used to the program doing it that I just ignore what it does, look at the total price & pay it. And it does sync with a PC. Make your lists on PC was a very big plus for me.
    I had/have this on my old Palm 3, too. I still have the poor ol' thing and use it every once in awhile for something.
  19. It appears as though a simple excel spreadsheet would be the way to go for now....

    I downoaded Splash Shopper whe I got my phone, I wonder why I didn't like it now. I might see if I can trial it again. HandBase is awesome for my business stuff, but a little cumbersome for shopping.
