For shoppers who want to keep track of their pantry and their spending
When you use Out of Milk, you're working with an app that's designed with shoppers in mind. It's simple, fast, and easy to use, allowing you to enter new items with just a few taps and some typing. Out of Milk supports three types of lists: shopping, pantry, and to-do. Within the shopping list, you're able to jot down things you need to buy, categorizing them and marking how many you need. The pantry helps you keep track of those commonly-used food items (or whatever) that you have on hand. In the To-Do list, you can keep track of those tasks you need to complete and when they're due. The real power of the app for shopping comes after you've entered something into your list. If you tap on that item, you'll be able to set things like how many of it you want to buy and the price. You can even put in coupons you might have for that item, and whether it's going to be taxed. You can also categorize your items, specifying things like where you might find them or what they're for. Out of Milk is able to handle as many lists as you want to create, so you can use it for your weekly trip to the grocery store as well as your Christmas shopping, all without any mixups or confusion. In the pantry view, you can create a list for yourself of what you have in your pantry, and how much. You're able to enter how many eggs you have, for example, or whether your butter dish is full or low.
Why we love it
Even more powerful is the app's ability to keep track of how much you're spending, or about to spend. You can see a running total of your list at the bottom of the screen. As you check things off, they move to the Completed section and you're able to see how much everything in your shopping cart should cost. That way, you don't have any surprises. Out of Milk is fully customizable. You can edit categories, sales tax amount, currency, and whether alarms get set for items in your to-do list.
