Although most people refuse to acknowledge this, the digital revolution has a major disadvantage. Holding a smart-phone in one hand and pushing the shopping cart with the other leaves you with few options when needing to check your shopping list. But for all those apps that clutter your mobile device, why not incorporate another digital version of a common object?
A more perfect calculator
Out of Milk is a digital shopping list. not only that, but it can also be used for a to-do list and pantry inventory.
To start composing a shopping list you simply need to type in a few letters. The app has an extensive database of grocery items that are grouped into categories. That means that they are automatically grouped so that they can be scanned efficiently when you are near the appropriate isle. Of course, you can add new items and set categories yourself.
Every item can be customized in terms of quantity, unit of measure, price, tax exemption and category. You can set a tax amount that applies automatically to all items and you can also have them displayed in your preferred currency.
In contrast to the shopping list, Out of Milk also has a Pantry list. This can be managed separately but you can move items between the lists so you won't need to update them manually every time. The shopping itself is easy. You just check items and they go to the bottom of the list to give you a clear picture of what is left.
Lists can also be shared with others in a multitude of ways, including e-mail, Bluetooth and SMS.
