So as many of my viewers know, I have been starting to work on apps for the windows app store and I just completed my first app. It’s called the Shopping Nanny!. This application like many others in all the phone stores is an app for making lists for the various shopping you may do. It focuses on groceries, but can be used for virtually any of your shopping needs.
The biggest enhancement to this list app is the ability to copy any list from any application on your phone (messenger, email etc..) into the application to create a list on the fly. The list just needs to be either comma separated OR carriage return separated so it knows any long details like (milk 2% 1/2 gallon) is part of the same item.
To do this, you click the add new list button on the sub menu. After adding the name of the list, there is a large textbox that can be use to paste a bunch of items from anywhere on your phone.
Then after you hit the save button, the new list displays with all the new items you added.
The other nice feature is the strikeout feature when you have completed an item. This makes it very obvious when juggling various things while shopping that you already retrieved the item. It is much easier than trying to keep your child in the cart, look through the isles for best prices AND search and count through your cart to see if you already got something. See below for an example.
Hope everyone enjoys the new app!
