If you are looking to make your grocery shopping trips a bit easier, read about the Apps listed below because they will do just that.



Flipp Corporation developed this great shopping app. It is free to download on through the apple app store and currently it can only be used on an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch, but an Android app for it should be available soon.  USA Today named this app as one for the top shopping apps in 2013.

Free Shopping List Ease


Free Shopping List Ease is another great app that will help you with your grocery shopping. It allows you to create two kinds of lists, what you need to shop for at the store and what you have stored away in your cabinets. This is handy because when you see a great recipe you know right away what ingredients you have and which ones you need to purchase. You can add items to your list by searching for them or by scanning the barcodes. You can also share the list with others so they can add to your list, or have it accessible to them if they get to the store before you do. This app is just like a regular grocery list, but it has many enhancements to make your shopping trip easier.

One of the great features about this app is that it places the items on your list in line with the aisles where you find the items at the store. This feature saves people a lot of time. Another great feature is that it records the prices of the items that you add to your list so you are aware of how much you will be spending at the store. It helps you save on these items as well because it looks for coupons automatically to help you save money when possible.
