Supercharge Your Errand Runs with Rainbow Shopping List
Have you ever wanted a little bit more from your shopping list? I mean, sure; Google Keep is a great cloud-enabled utility for jotting down simple notes and even a basic shopping list, but it’s nowhere near as feature-rich as a dedicated shopping list app. Well, XDA Forum Member chakdev hopes to provide users with a better, more powerful way of handling multiple shopping lists with his latest app Rainbow Shopping List.
So what makes this app stand apart? Aside from the vibrant colors alluded to by the app’s title, it is quite powerful. For example, when you’re in a specific list, you can enter item prices. Furthermore, you can view list completion progress in the overview screen, as well as edit multiple items at the same time. It also includes some logic intelligence, in order to offer some basic predictions. Finally, it has speech recognition and barcode scanning.
The developer is giving away 100 free licenses to XDA community members for the premium version of the app. The premium version removes advertisements and adds a couple of important features such as location-aware reminders. Head over to the application thread to get started and find out how to use the special code.
