Actually helpful 5/5
I never write reviews, but as a supremely disorganized person, i actually really appreciate this app - it sorts things into categories for you, which is actually really helpful, for example at the grocery. I’ve been using it for a week and love it.
Best list app out there 5/5
One of my most used apps. Love it.
A time-saving app 5/5
I am rewriting and resubmitting my review of the AnyList app. I have been using it faithfully for several years and am impressed at how functional it is. I even have a separate list of house cleaning/yard work duties that syncs to my son’s iPhone, so I just select which home maintenance items need to be completed — and he uses that list as a guide to get his chores done. Surprisingly, I’ve also gotten into the recipe element of AnyList. I’ve cooked many of the included recipes and have imported dozens of others and now never run out of creative dinner ideas to cook for my family. This is a great app… one that you will find many, many uses for.

I’m a big list maker and have tried several apps. This one is my favorite! I especially love the recipe section which is very smart! After creating a grocery list, you can assign that to your recipes and add ingredients into your grocery list. Brilliant.
I use it for my business 5/5
Love It 5/5
Very convenient for keeping the grocery list updated and available to whomever is stopping at the store on the way home from work. Also a good place to create the “honey do” project list.
Love this app 5/5
We use this for everything. It has made organizing our lives so much better!
Works Great 5/5
I just love AnyList. Works great with no problems. I primarily use it for grocery lists with Alexa.
Love this app!! 5/5
By Anylisy Fan
My husband and I fit into the “soon to be retired” category. We don’t like a lot of bells and whistles. We want an app that is simple to use, includes features that are designed around the app purpose and is well supported. We share the lists in the app so he and I can grocery shop separately, picking up things we both need. We take a picture of the item and include the store where the item can be found when creating a Favorite. We have used the app for several years now. I highly recommend it.
No more buying too much because now there is only ONE shopping list.
Fantastic a must have!! 5/5
By Chef O
I am a Chef (retired) and I find this app to be extremely helpful in saving money by:
1 planning my menus
2 entering store prices as I shop allowing me to see where my dollar will be best used
3 the ability to import recipes from my Paprika app is very nice and being able to directly download other recipes right into the app
4 having recipes allows me to quickly see what I need to purchase for that weeks menus saving me time by avoiding last minute run to the store.
5 the Iwatch interface is great when shopping
Overall I think this is a great app and highly recommend it.
Well worth the money 5/5
We live in a rural area, and travel 75+ miles to do our monthly grocery shopping, frequently stopping at as many as 6-8 stores. An item is added to our list as we run low, or is on sale. We rarely forget to pick up what is needed. Sure beats paper, or heaven forbid our memory. You can’t go wrong with this app. Save yourself time and money. Start using it today!
List lovers this is it 5/5
I live my life with lists, my spouse will attest as he’s been teasing for over 13 years. While I still have paper lists all over, AnyList is where I put most of my lists.
I can share my lists with my spouse who can add items as he likes and shop with or without me.
While there is a subscription service, I have never purchased it and am fulfilled in my list-making life.
It works well with Siri, if you accept Siri’s difficulties with English. I don’t use the Reminders app so I don’t know about that capability. I did, years ago, and found AnyList when I went looking because I was unsatisfied with Reminders.
The ability to share my organization of lists and categories has made as things even better.
To the developers:
Thank you 😊. I appreciate that you upgrade the free version’s capabilities as well and do not limit functionality enough to make the free version useless. If I could afford it, I’d buy a subscription for you. AnyList is my best find since getting a smartphone.
Made my life easier! 5/5
I love this app! Keeps me organized and on track. From “To-Do” lists to shopping lists....this is a winner.
I am thrilled that I am beck with AnyList. I cannot understand why I stop using it.
Best list making app 5/5
I’ve downloaded so many list making apps over the years and finally found one that I really like and that meets my needs. Very easy to customize your lists with ability to create your own categories and folders. Easy to add items, easily toggle items as completed vs incompleted. Also really like being able to add recipes and very easily then add items to my grocery list. I also share lists with other family members. So easy to get a quick list to my husband when he makes an unexpected trip to the grocery store. I even have checklists for my kids for packing for trips, sleepovers, etc. Well worth the annual subscription. I figure it easily pays for itself with its meal planner and recipe functions with money saved on one planned meal at home vs. dining out.
We now rely on this 5/5
We use the family plan. It makes lists, tasks, and recipes incredibly easy. It updates all parties. The recipe import is fantastic. Money well spent.
Best app on my phone! 5/5
I’ve been paying for AnyList since I found it. Definitely worth the investment for the versatility. I love the recipe import feature, and that I can set different grocery stores and then filter by grocery store. I use AnyList for my family’s groceries weekly, with friends and family for joint trips, and also for all my vacation packing lists. AnyList makes this Type A, first born, Virgo very happy! ;)
Love this app! 5/5
So much better than any other list app I’ve tried. The “sharing” option has been exceptionally useful when my husband decides he wants something after I’ve already left for the store.
AnyList fantastic - love the sharing feature 5/5
My husband and I really like this app. I can set up different lists and share the ones I want with whoever I want.
We share our grocery list and when 1 person is not with the other it’s great to be able to add to the list when you’re not the one shopping - or see items be eliminated when the other checks off the item. I have added to the list while hubby is shopping and do not need to call or text.
I’d like to add pictures of products to help him see exactly what I want and I could if I purchased but it’s great as is.
Thanks for a super great user friendly and helpful app!
Any list is the greatest! 5/5
Love love love this app. So great to have everything at your fingertips when you’re shopping. So easy to upload recipes from the Internet. I recommend it to everyone!
Absolutely The Best 5/5
I have used quite a few “list” programs in the last twenty years. All primarily for shipping as I hate spending more time in a store searching for what I need. Becoming disabled only increased my frustration moving around big grocery stores. And when I had to stay using the motorized shipping cart, well, you can guess how much my frustration increased.
Then I came scraps this app, “Anylist.” when you have limited battery life, 15 main aisles in addition to bakery, deli, meats, produce, back row, aisle ends, and so on, it is critical that I start at one place and move through the store without having to backtrack.
This app is a godsend. I can get my shopping done so quickly that I amaze myself and feel pretty good when I am done! Add to that the fact that I can use an iPad in the kitchen, another in the TV room, on my iPhone elsewhere, and then go to the stire with only watch to do the shopping? Now THAT is what I call excellent “usability!” I would pay any cost for this program just for its usability in grocery shopping. I am now finding is just as useful for all of the lists I create.
Another favorite feature is how I can save recipes from “anywhere” and save them in Anylist! Then just pick the recipe to add the ingredients to my shopping list. Heavenly Magic!
Love it!! 5/5
Love this app. It’s seriously what I’ve been looking for. After many downloaded and deleted by others I’ve finally found the app I’ve been searching for. I’ve had many friends add this to their must have.
The o my thing is love to see in the future if possible (like in All Recipes) is an interactive items needed on sale info.
I’m really enjoying this app. Thank you
App Store’s best kept secret!! 5/5
This intuitive, easy to use, great-looking design is in a class all of its own. The two creators of this app wanted to create a unique app, and they accomplished that! Not only is it SO SIMPLE to upload pretty much ANY recipe you find on the Internet, but you can actually use them in your meal planner (a rare duo in these types of apps) and it works!! I was so happy with the free version, that I splurged on the individual membership.
Thanks guys!! Keep up the great work!! It would be super fantastic if there was option to use themes for the entire UI (not just the lists) in future versions!! 🤞🏻💯💯
Great app 5/5
I love this app. I use it to shop, store recipes, make meal plans. It’s really easy to use! I’m still not sure how to (or if I can) customize lists super specifically but it’s not that big of a deal.
Can’t live without this app 5/5
My husband and I love this app! We can shop opposite sides of the store and both our lists update as we pick things up. The lives help stick to our budget.
The meal planner and recipe import work very well for us. Everyone knows what is for dinner. Only with we could purchase more memory or something so we could keep more of our frequent items. And if there was a way to add tax easily to the prices.
Again wonderful App!
Ok. I hardly ever rate an app, but I have to rate this one. I tried list apps I found less useful and difficult this is so intuitive, exactly what I strove for when I designed software. I use it everyday with a list for every place I ever shop. As soon as something runs out or pops into my head I put it on a list. Now I don’t have that just got back from the store and forgot thing. I use a lot of online recipes so now I’m going to upgrade so I don’t have to try to remember “where did I see that”. It’s so easy and most blogs work with it. I was totally surprised to find out just two guys created and maintain this app. Genius!
Highly recommend- Best around 5/5
We use this app for everything from shopping/grocery lists to lists of things to pack. Easy to use, intuitive layout, but with nifty extras like customizable categories hidden in list settings for those who want. We looked through a bunch of share-able shopping lists before we found this one. Highly recommend.
Game changer 5/5
I love this app so much. I keep all my recipes in it, so meal planning is SUPER easy. We’re Dave Ramsay people so I keep prices for things in it and it keeps track of cost as I cross things off so I know exactly how much I’m spending before I get to the checkout and it’s awesome. It syncs between my iPad and my phone or my husbands since it’s shareable. I save money by only buying what’s on the meal plan, so my cupboards aren’t overflowing with crap we won’t eat (That sparks some joy let me tell you). I keep my travel pack lists in it as well. OH and I can import recipes from almost any site with a button. Worth 👏🏼 every 👏🏼 penny👏🏼.
Love this app 5/5
I've been using for awhile for just about every list category you can think of, but only just now played around with the browser plugin for importing recipes and then using them to easily create meal plans and shopping lists. Fantastic feature...
Needs work 2/5
I want to build a list of commonly purchased items with pricing and stores that I can create new temporary lists from for each trip.
Best app on my phone, for sure! 5/5
I just renewed my subscription. This is the BEST APP on my iPhone. Really. It’s made my life so much easier, particularly for cooking and meal planning. The integration with Alexa really works, and makes this app even more valuable. I don’t worry anymore about having to remember things. I’ve created lots of different lists, and Alexa recognizes them all. Between AnyList and Alexa, I get lots of reminders.
I import recipes from several different websites, and the import works extremely well. Everything gets in the right fields the first time. My renewal was the only bill I actually enjoyed paying. Everyone needs this app, particularly us old people!
Any List 5/5
By Ken SJ
Have found a single bug. Congratulations
Love it! 5/5
Love this app!! Makes grocery shopping so much easier, especially among family members. A shared list is updated immediately when someone adds or crosses off an item. The recipe tracker is amazing as well, especially when you can pull the items to the shared list. Great product!!
Does this app really not have barcode scanning?
Amazing App 5/5
So often when I download a new app it falls short of my expectations. Not AnyList. It has every feature I need and more. Importantly too, it’s easy to set up and use.
This is an excellent, versatile app 5/5
I’ve been using AnyList for multiple years and still love it. We started primarily for the simple and effective grocery list sharing but now use it for everything (non-grocery shopping, trip planning, gift lists, and what-have-you). We have the family subscription and especially enjoy the recipe import feature and Apple Watch app.
Great app for coordination 5/5
Our primary use is for grocery shopping. Any List Complete enables my wife and myself to coordinate lists in real time using our iPhones. This is particularly handy when I’ve left for the store and she needs to add items. I also make up other lists. Not all need be shared. It’s an easy alternative way to create reminders which, at my age, I find helpful.
Best Meal Planning App Ever!! 5/5
The initial work of entering recipes has paid off in spades; plus you can easily add recipes from any website. Recipes, planning, and grocery list - all in one. I recommend this to everyone!!
I usually don’t write reviews. Just takes to much time but I really enjoy this app!
Best shopping list app! 5/5
I got this App when I was looking for something to replace Ziplist, which was adequate, but has been discontinued. I found AnyList as a suggestion in another app's low review.
I have only had it for a few days so far, and have only used it for shopping lists but it seems perfect. I love the sync feature, and the ability to mark favorites and also categorize them by store so you only need one list. You can still have a list for every store, though, if that is your preference.
I went ahead and paid for the family sharing annual subscription because I think it will save time and prevent unnecessary purchases.
The ability to have other kinds of lists will be great for a travel list so I don't forget to take something and then don't forget to bring it home again.
Great customer support too! I had a question over the weekend and had an answer from a real person first thing this morning.
Update 7/2019: I still love AnyList and use it almost daily. They update and improve frequently. I now use the recipes feature quire a bit in addition to multiple lists. It’s easy to upload a recipe from most websites and to keep recipes in one convenient place where I can categorize them myself. It’s worth every penny to pay the annual fee.
The best app! A must have for us busy parents! 5/5
I can’t tell you how hard it is to figure out what to cook for the week. Well , with this app, I look forward to it now. I can look back at last week’s menu and see how to repeat or not. If I have a loaded work week coming up, I have a list for 10 minute meals that I only use for those weeks! It’s so easy to just tap each needed ingredient into my shopping list.
Gains in efficiency 5/5
I am loving the recipe import feature! It not only helps to be able to easily add the ingredients to my grocery list, but it makes it easier to get to the recipe instead of having to scroll through all the chit chat. I upgraded to premium so I could use the web app in addition to the iPhone app so I can basically access from anywhere and print the recipe when I want.
Great App 5/5
Very good app. It works terrific with Amazon Echo-Alexa, but not Siri.
Pay to import 1/5
Disappointed that I now have to pay to import recipes from the internet when before it was free.
Can’t imagine life without AnyList! 5/5
By No longer a DDS fan
I’ve used AnyList for several years, beginning with the free version. A few years ago, I was planning a big RV trip for our family of four. Even though I don’t purchase many apps, I decided to purchase the full version of AnyList to use the meal planning function. I LOVE it! We use the meal plan for almost every trip. My kids and I do the planning and shopping, and my husband just has to open the app to see what he’s cooking that day! We have multiple shopping lists for different stores, the kids have their birthday and Christmas wish lists, “to do” lists for each family member and so many more. I love having everything in one place and the ability to choose which lists I want to share, and with whom. If you’re looking for a list making app, get AnyList. You won’t regret it!
The best list app I have ever used and many other features still available with my Individual subscription to explore.
The app is so useful though, that I can see that I should have went with the ‘Family’ plan as this will be something my wife will need to download.
Give the gift of organization.
By Bush Pritzle
You want me to pay to create lists? Haha
Love this app! 5/5
I love the simplicity of using this app. Make no mistake though... I can make my lists as complex as I’d like them to be. It’s super flexible. And it’s reliable. Developers did a great job with integrating features I didn’t even know I wanted! I highly recommend.
