I'm loving Simple Grocery List. I don't love many apps, for many reasons, usually having to do with them needing and wanting to do about three thousand things that I don't need them to do. I don't need my bill pay app to do my taxes. I don't need my transit app to figure out my cell phone overage charges. I don't need my news app to pick up my dry-cleaning. But it seems like that's where we are headed with apps, each app doing everything and not doing anything very well.
But Simple Grocery List might not be an anidote to all that, at least it's a little break from it. Simple Grocery List just makes lists. That's all. It doesn't make your coffee, it doesn't make you take you vitamins, it doesn't make you scan things or give you coupon ads for things you don't want. It just enables you to make a list, which you can name anything you want (see...doesn't have to be groceries) and then enables you to cross things off that same list. Nifty, huh? It's got a nice graphic interface so you actually get that same endorphin rush as crossing things off a paper to do list, and you can pay a little bit (the initial app is free) and get different looking environments, if that's your thing. And as a special bonus, you can email the list directly from the application. You can also tag the items to make for easy searching. But it doesn't do more than that, because there are times when simple just is a whole bunch better.
