IQ Grocery

Posted by KL Tech Muse at 8:34 PM on January 31, 2010

One of the first things that I looked for when I got my Iphone was a grocery list application. I wanted one that was easy to use, easy to add to and was versatile. After a bit of trial and error I found one that I really like and use weekly and that is IQ Grocery. IQ Grocery can be downloaded through the App store for .99 cents.

When you open the application you will see five icons at the bottom of the screen; list, favorites, store, coupons and others. To add a store you simply click on the store icon and then add the name of the store. You can add as many stores as you want, if you need to change stores just click on the the icon at the top and pick the store you want. To add an item you can type the item in, you can also add it by putting in the bar code number or by scanning the bar code in using your Iphone camera. When you start typing an item in IQ Grocery will try to complete it for you. It will offer you the generic item and also any brand name items that are available. As you shop you simply check the item off and it will fall below the divide line. To restore it you simply check again and it will appear You can further tweak your items by limiting by price, size or weight. You can also add a description or note for an item. You can also assign items to a specific store or a your favorites.

IQ Grocery also offers coupons from Coupon.com, which you can clip and send wirelessly to your printer. or email the coupons and print them from there. If you shop at a store affiliated with Safeway, then you can add the coupon directly to your club card. If you want to share a list with someone you can sync it with them. If you sync a list with anyone else if they make a change on their list it will appear on yours. You can also email a list to anyone for them to print out.

There are a couple of things that I don’t like about IQ Grocery. First you can only print your coupons wirelessly if you have a HP printer. It would also be nice if you could add coupons to more then just a Safeway club card. Some people also complain because there are advertisements in an application you already, However despite these few negative things I really like the IQ Grocery application and would recommend it to anyone looking for a good grocery list client.
