Ibotta is a money saving app and, by far, one of the best grocery list apps out there.

It has been featured on Forbes, Good Morning America, Mashable, Today, and other media platforms.

Ibotta users have earned over $194M (as of this writing) in cash rewards. That sure is a lot of money. No wonder that this app is considered a 50-star app based on over 50,000 app reviews.


With Ibotta, you save or make money when you purchase specific products in Ibotta and by scanning your receipts.

Also, you can complete a series of tasks or activities and receive bonus dollars.

It's as simple as that.

So, far:

My wife and I have managed to make over $400 in just a few months. Isn't that cool, right?

2. Smart Shopping List Android l iOS

Ease of Use: Super user-friendly

With Smart Shopping List, you can easily create a thorough list or create what is known as “quicklist.”

Here's how it works:

Smart Shopping List will list or show you the most popular items you have in your history.

Whenever you are in a hurry, all you need to do is pull up the list and tap those items to add them to your new list.

You won’t have to write the items again and again just like what you do with listing down grocery items manually.

And there's more:

There’s another feature on Smart Shopping List that I really like.

You can organize your list by aisle. If you go to the store most of the time and buy the same things from there, you can easily make your list go in order of the aisles.

How cool is that? This way, you aren’t going to the aisle by aisle looking for the same stuff you buy all the time.


3. That Shopping List Android

Ease of Use: Super user-friendly

That Shopping List is simply one of the best grocery list apps out there.

Want something simple and easy to use?

Even when some of the best grocery list apps out there may seem complicated (but they really are not), there’s an app called ‘That Shopping List’.

It’s the perfect definition of a simple shopping list app.

Here's how it works:

You can easily add grocery items on the list along with specific formats.

For example, if you want to 5 bags of russet potato, then, you can list on that app “5 bags”.

My wife can sometimes be confused with all of these grocery list apps, but I will tell you that this shopping is among the user-friendly and the easiest apps to get used to.


4. Our Groceries Android l iOS 

Ease of Use: User-friendly

grocery list apps, best shopping list app android, grocery pal app, best grocery list app 2018, best grocery list app 2017

Our Groceries shopping list app is as basic as it gets.

You have two lists in this app: Recipes and Shopping Lists.

While some of the apps will help you list the measurement of the ingredients you need, this list doesn’t.

I think that’s fine too because, many times, when you go to the grocery, you can’t just buy specific products with specific measurements.

For example, you won’t be able to buy a ¾ cup of flour because flour is purchased by a bag.

For those who want the most basic app out there, then, I think this is the right app for you.


5. Bring! Shopping List Android l iOS

Ease of Use: User-friendly

Care to share your shopping list?

Then, this is the right shopping list app for you. Yes, this is a shared grocery list app.


With Bring! Shopping list, you can share your list with people in your household. This list will be synched.

Even better:

When somebody who has the list adds or deletes items in it, then, you will be notified, too. You will also get notified when someone is currently shopping.


6. Buy Me A Pie! Android l iOS

Ease of Use: Somewhat user-friendly

No more listing down all the same grocery items again and again.

You read that right!

Buy Me A Pie! takes away from you the manual way of listing down your grocery items.

This app saves your grocery list for future uses.

Here's another perk:

It also helps you keep everything organized by color-coding the items. Like Bring! Shopping List, you can sync your list with another person.


7. Organizy Grocery Shopping List Android l iOS

Ease of Use: Somewhat user-friendly

If you are a detailed person and wants to know the detail down to the weight of the product you need to use for specific meals, then, this app is made for you.

You can add and keep track of just about anything related to your meals (i.e. ingredients and the amount you need per ingredient).

We are used to scratching off the items that are already in our basket or cart.

Fret not:

You can do the same with this app. You can easily swipe off the item from the list in just a few seconds.

Even more interesting:

You can also group the items on your list by aisle.

If you are a visual person, you will really like this app. Each group of items on your list or aisle is color-coded, which may or will lessen the chance of you missing things you need to buy.


8. Cozi Family Organizer Android l iOS

Ease of Use: Super user-friendly

This is not just a grocery list app. It's almost an all-around app that does a lot of things.

Named as the “must-have app” to have a better life by The TODAY Show, this app allows users to keep its users' schedules organized and updated.

Here's what it offers:

The feature not only includes tasks related to shopping but also include tasks like running errands, household chores, among others.

Who doesn't love an app that makes life easier?

Best of all, this app is absolutely FREE.


9. Grocery IQ Android l iOS

Ease of Use: Super user-friendly

Want to scan barcodes of your grocery items?

If your answer is yes, then, this is the right app for you.

With Grocery IQ, not only can you scan the barcodes but you can also save money. The app will provide you with a list of products which you can save money on. You tap the ones you choose and they will be added to your list.

You can print them out, email to yourself, and use them at the store. As simple as that.


10. Out of Milk Android l iOS

Ease of Use: Super user-friendly

Out of Milk app should also be mentioned in the best grocery list apps.


I’m the typical type of frugal individual who wants to know how much things cost. So, I write the product I want to buy and its cost.

By doing this, I know exactly how much my budget is when going to the grocery store.

This is what Out of Milk does. It allows you to create a list and list the costs of the products on the list as well.

Wonder why the name of the app is like that?

The devil is in the details.

Here's a better feature:

This app helps you keep track what you are out of.

You will be able to track and add your staple items to see which items are in low quantity, need to be replenished, and/or which ones you don’t need more of.


11. Free Shopping List Ease AndroidiOS

Ease of Use: Super user-friendly

Free Shopping List Ease allows the users to create two important types of lists (i.e. a list of items you currently have in your pantry or cabinets and a list of what you need to buy).

So, what's so unique about this grocery list app?

Well, it's unique in the sense that it allows you to run a list of groceries you already have in order to avoid double purchases.

In one sense, it helps you to not spend more money. Who doesn't like that?

I highly recommend this app not only for its functionality but also for its cost (i.e. FREE).
