Shopster Remembers Where You Buy Things So You Don't Have To
There's a new grocery list app in town, and it promises to make grocery shopping around town much easier with its flagship feature. It's called Shopster, and it's touted as a "geo-learning" grocery list app. At first blush, Shopster looks to be a regular grocery list app — which it is, if you decide to use it as just that. Just tap on the plus button to add items to your list and slide the handy side ruler to enter the corresponding quantity for your items. You can reorder items simply by tapping and holding on them. Shopster also includes an in-place editing table and smart autocomplete. Once you've entered everything you need to buy in Shopster, you're good to go and use it as you would any other ordinary grocery list app. If you can't see the video embedded above, please click here. But you see, in truth, Shopster is no ordinary grocery list app. And this is owing to its "geo-learning" flagship feature. With this feature, Shopster learns the location of your purchase whenever you check an item as purchased. Consequently, the next time you're at a shop where you previously bought an item you're looking for, Shopster sets off a geofenced alarm effectively reminding you to buy that item right there and then. Optimized for iPhone and iPod touch running iOS 5.1 or later, Shopster is available now in the App Store for $0.99. Obviously, Shopster is ideal for regularly bought items, such as groceries, of course, and even iTunes gift cards. It can even be used to remind you to pay your bills when you're near your favorite payment center. How you use Shopster and its "geo-learning" capability is entirely up to you.
