Essential : makes life easier & marriage saver! 5/5
This is the one app on my phone I use almost daily. I have many lists and a main grocery list my husband and kids all share. ANYONE can stop by the store on the way home and have the list. I pay the annual fee, just having the photo option has saved my marriage! LOL (ok, that’s a little dramatic.) But seriously, no more “why did you buy that flavor/brand? We’ve bought xyz for ten years because the kid gets a rash with that stuff. You know what I’m talking about if you are married.
My sisters and I share a medication list for my aging dad. And a grocery list to help him with shopping.
And the recipe component?!! You need this in your life. Stop at the store and need a dinner idea? I have actually done this. Popped open my app, chose a recipe and with a touch the items I need are added to my list. It is really magical.
I decided to start keeping my recipes here, adding them as I used them and now I have a whole collection. I put the browser extension on my computer (Mac) and can easily put online recipes right into the app. Adding them by hand is easy too. I have them categorized. Slow cooker, main dish, Italian, Mexican, poultry, beef, soups, breakfast, Thanksgiving, etc. (a single recipe can be in more than one category. Really. Do yourself a favor and just try it. It is life changing. I started with the free lists. And now it is my pleasure to pay an annual fee in gratitude for such a helpful tool.
AnyList is all you need! 5/5
This app is everything you need for creating and sharing recipes AND for creating shopping and any other types of lists! The copy and paste features make recipe building so easy! Having the entire family sharing lists in real time is so helpful. Meal planning and prep have never been so easy.
Terrific, Clean Listing App! 5/5
By Darnell Brown
...with frequent updates and additions - love it. These guys are some of the best in the business.
Great app 5/5
Love anylist! Love the recipe import and the list sharing! My only suggestion would be an inventory list. Great app though even without it. I pay the yearly subscription and it is well worth it!
Great little app to share grocery lists 4/5
We had another app previously - it always had issues updating and syncing between our phones, which was super frustrating. AnyList is a better app with less glitches and more features. We like it- and it is a handy tool that allows us to each update the list at a moment’s notice. Highly recommend!
Can’t get in 1/5
Have to do 1 Star. Can’t get in. Try to sign up and they say already have account. Try to sign in and won’t recognize pw so go to forgot password and they have sent me 5 emails and when I tap the button, it’s a blank page. No way to contact company so no way to use app. Too bad. Looks like it would be usable.
Great app 4/5
By Cyber Sticks
My wife and I both use app regularly. The shared list function is great. Works well and suits our needs perfectly.
Love it! The Only List App You'll Ever Need! 5/5
This app is great! I just have the basic/standard (free) one, but I would like to get the UPGRADE! I have different Store Shopping List, my Make-up, school clothes shopping, to a "planning a baby shower" list! It's great!
Consistently Great App 5/5
I've had the paid version for several years now. My wife and I use this for grocery shopping and other errands. I couldn't organize my life without it.
Finally perfect! 5/5
Only thing that was missing for me was the ability to sync with arbitrary Alexa lists. Will be managing all our family grocery and miscellaneous lists now. Thanks guys!
About the only thing that might interest me further are notifications when a family member has added something to a shared list. Maybe that’s already there and I just haven’t found it.
Thanks for making a great product!
Easy buy costly 4/5
Easy to use, share, customize but $12 per year is steep.
By morte fromage
The world is more than iPhones. I, myself, am in a mixed marriage. I use my iPhone while my wife has a Galaxy. It severely limits the usefulness of the tool.
Love AnyList! ❤️ My FAVORITE App! 5/5
-Ability to share lists with family members
-Anyone with whom you've shared the list can add or cross off items in real time
-Customize your lists to the layout of your store
-Import and store recipes
-Easily add recipe ingredients to shopping list
-So many features make this app ideal for a better shopping, cooking and meal planning experience.
Thank you, Jason & Jeff for a super app that just keeps getting better!
Alexa integration 5/5
I loved AnyList before and love it even more with the Alexa integration. Thank you!
Very Good IOS App 4/5
This app does most things well, and syncs seamlessly across my iPhone, iPad and Mac. Two minor quibbles: you can’t insert line breaks in a note, which means you have to do post-editing after you import the data into another program, and you can’t assign a note to more than one category. If you could do those last two things, it would replace almost any other note and list app.
Best Grocery Shopping App, Period 5/5
I've gone through 6 grocery shopping/ list apps so far, and none had the functionality to remember favorite items, until this one. This app is perfect for anyone who doesn't want to create a new grocery list every week. You can have favorite items, and add whatever else you need. Have a recipe? You can add the link, import the ingredients, and add ingredients to your lists. You can make weekly meal plans. Have a list in Notes? You can import it. And integration with Amazon’s Alexa is amazing.
I recommend purchasing the individual or family plan. It's worth it (you can update the list in real time while a family member is grocery shopping).
On my Mac, iPhone & iPad. 5/5
By Sharon P.
Using several years as a paid subscriber so the app’s developer an afford to continue providing. I do not know the developer, I just know great work. This is the best list manager. Ability to make sub folders and migrate lists makes this app so efficient. It is fast -reacts immediately...syncs instantly. I use it on Mac, iPhone & iPad. I subscribe to "Complete" subscription. I'm in this app all day long. And now I tell Alexa to add items to any of my many lists!!! And now I can have a single grocery list and have filters for the items I buy only at certain stores! Love it.
Best App Ever! 5/5
Title says it all!
The Best 5/5
Best grocery list app on the market, hands down.
Shopping made easy 5/5
We have multiple lists on Any List, which has made our shopping much less of a hassle. No more sticky notes or paper lists getting lost. And anytime we realize we need something we quickly type it in. An app we visit at least once a day!
This app will improve your life no end 5/5
I can’t imagine going back to a life without this app. I can plan meals, put a shopping list together and go and get the items with zero hassle. And since owning an Apple Watch, I have discovered the marvel of wrist-based shopping lists; the watch app means I no longer have to hold the cart in one hand and the phone in the other. Seriously, just get this app, and do yourself a favor by getting the subscription, it is totally worth it. Thank you, developers, you’re awesome.
Keeps Me Organized 5/5
I use this app a lot. Love the list and the ability to store recipes in the app too. Great!
Phone app 5 stars, Watch app 3 stars 4/5
I find the Apple Watch app to be highly disappointing. To add a new item it relies on voice, which has yet to actually work for me. Why not let me scribble the words?! And if I’m using it just to check off items in the store, it always freezes on me. It just can’t handle.
However, the phone app is amazing and totally worth the premium subscription if you have multiple people in your household. I used it for ages free, but the premium is great. I love being able to add recipes to it and use it to meal plan.
Awesome app 5/5
By JB from Illinois
This is one of those app I use for EVERYTHING!
Easy to use....really good tech support. Love this app!!!!
Awesome App 5/5
AnyList keeps my husband and I connected on so many things.
I’ve tried a lot of listing apps and this one tops them all 5/5
Absolutely the best list software out there. Totally flexible, totally interfaced with Alexa. Finally, an app that allows recognition of many types of lists. You can have grocery list, Walmart list, list of things to ask your doctor, anything you can think of. I’ve tried a lot of listing apps and this one tops them all
I love this app 5/5
This is one of the few apps that I use multiple times each day. It works flawlessly.
I use lists of all types but my favorite use of this app is recipes and the grocery list.
Love it 5/5
Great way to save recipes directly from the web , make a shopping list, and a meal plan for the week.
Life Changer 5/5
By Chris Carson
I never write reviews, but I’ve used this app for years and absolutely love it. My wife and I use it for lists pretty much every day. It’s amazing. Thanks!
My Very Favorite App 5/5
This app is amazing. It’s constantly getting better rather than being forgotten. Pay the annual membership fee! It’s inexpensive and so worth the price for the upgrades. And by adding Alexa, this app deserves 10 stars!!! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Excellent Recipe App 5/5
I use this app almost on a daily basis for grocery shopping and planning out a menu for the week. The neat feature for me is when you click on an ingredient you need from a recipe it places that ingredient into you grocery list. The app further places that same ingredient under the appropriate category such as produce, dairy, etc.. I highly recommend the app to all. The price for the yearly subscription is reasonable to boot.
Useful app 5/5
Started using this when it first came out. Sharing lists, importing recipes, and other features make this a gem. Developers are continuously making improvements, e g. recently added Alexa integration- as did Sonos, causing me to breakdown and get a Dot.
I won't use anything else! 5/5
AnyList is just about perfect, and AnyList Complete is totally worth the money. I had tried and tried to find good listmaking apps for shopping and other tasks before I found it, even shopped around a couple times while I've had it, but no other app has my favorite features and it updates and gets even better pretty frequently. It's SUPER easy to use and I would be lost without it. Thanks, guys. c:
I love the app! I've used it for my shopping and various other lists for several years and just learned to download recipes.
That’s a really good feature!
Going downhill from 4 stars 2/5
By Ace Jones
Becoming bloated. Who adds photos to the items on their shopping list? Why am I asked if I want to undo an action every couple of minutes? I’ve never, ever said yes but it persists. I’m actively looking for a replacement.
Great App! 5/5
I got Anylist back in like 2012 and have used it daily ever since.
It’s not just for making grocery lists, although it does a fantastic job of that too. We make lists for everything from a DVD list to camping supplies list. When we’re out at the store and find an old movie we’d like to add to our collection, it’s great to be able to check our current library to make sure we haven’t previously bought it and it also keeps our catalogs updated. It’s great for planning a camping trip because you can collaborate on making a list, then check off the items as you pack them...and you can save the list to use for your next trip, including adding or removing things as your needs change.
I have used this for Christmas lists, grocery lists, movies, hardware store supplies, camping, book inventory, video game inventory...everything. The options are endless.
I’d also recommend paying the subscription cost. It’s not terribly expensive for a year and it allows you to categorize your lists as well as many other features.
I hope you find as many uses as we have for Anylist.
One of the best list/recipe apps you can find 5/5
I've been using Any list for three years now and the app is as use full and more so since I started. I started using it as a list maker for shopping. The ability to cross things of off as I get them has streamlined my travels through the grocery store. I keep the essentials on one list and can recall them for the next shopping trip. And its not just for groceries.
The Siri and Alexa integration made this even easier.
Then I discovered the recipe import and management features. Now I surf for a recipe and when I find it I import it into Anylist. If the recipe uses the micro format it's added to my recipes. If not, I find one that is.
Then I review the recipe and check the items I need to buy and my shopping list is ready.
Last but not least is the Meal calendar. I use it to plan both the meals for the week and the shopping list.
It's especially helpful for planning Thanksgiving dinner. I put the make ahead recipes on one of the days before so I'm not leaving every thing until Wednesday.
Anylist is worth every penny I spent.
Amazing! Brilliant design. 5/5
My wife and I use it. It syncs and is fantastic. The development is wonderful.
Great app for serious planners 5/5
By Great for Scouting
We’ve been using this app for a year or longer now. Very solid performance and great for a serious meal planner like myself. The Chrome browser plugin for recipes is a huge bonus. It removes the tedious job of hand-jamming recipes. The interaction between the shopping list, recipe section, and meal planning is smooth and seamless.
Awesome list 5/5
This app only gets better!
User friendly. 5/5
I like it. Use it all the time!
Love the sharing option! 5/5
I share some lists with my wife and the lists automatically update. When we shop together I’ll go one direction and she’ll go the other and we’ll meet in the middle with everything on the list checked off.
Works well 5/5
By Hi and Lois
We have used it for about 2 years and like it very much. My wife and I can shop together and we both know what has been purchased. We also use it for general lists. I have a list of items that need to be done every fall. With a little creativity we also use it for our Christmas list.
Best list ever 5/5
Thank you guys for making this list keep updating just don’t delete it. It’s the best list ever!
Fantastic Organizational Ap for Busy Families 5/5
While initially skeptical this ap has made life so much easier. Love that my family have a central list of what to get at our fingertips and do menu planning in advance. Being able to add recipes and check off the ingredients you need is a fabulous feature. So grateful to those who devised it. Five stars!!!!!
Grocery and Packing 5/5
So great! I use it for recurring lists like groceries and packing. So easy to use and convenient. I just wish they included the browser functionality in the free version. The browser would be nice to have, but I’m not willing to pay for a subscription. Seems like a feature that should be basic and included.
I’ve made excel docs, tried other apps, & searched everywhere for something to simplify the tedious & ever present need for meal planning & prep for me and my clients (Personal Training)- I love how simple it is to upload my favorite recipes or copy & paste - that the grocery list is divided out for you, the weekly/ monthly planning options & the clean & simple format! 5 Stars!
I like the App 4/5
I’ve used the app for a couple of months. The only thing I wish it had was an option to turn on a “date completed” on a To-Do List. Another app I use has this option and it comes in handy when you have a list of items that are repeated and I can look back to see how long it’s been sine I’ve did a task.
Basically, I can’t live without it 5/5
I use AnyList for my weekend to-dos, simple grocery list (I’m crazy for the recipe import & meal planner features), “don’t forget” travel items (eg. sunglasses, phone charger), Christmas shopping - for instance, when I get an idea for a gift for someone, I just put it in AnyList - it’s so convenient and reliable to refer back to when the time comes to buy the gift.
It is a great productivity tool. I use it for marketing ideas or shopping for my business. Literally, the list goes on and on...It is convenient to have all of my lists in one location. #ilovelists & AnyList
Love it! 5/5
I’ve used this app for about 3 years or more and I can’t imagine being without it now! Have told several people about it and now they are using it.
