You want to find that recipe you found on the Internet sometime ago – but where’s it located? With Grosh you can now bookmark such a recipe straight on your mobile device. With Grosh – the intelligent grocery app – you can create your own collection of favourite recipes across multiple websites – and include your own recipes as well. This and more is possible in the latest version of the intelligent grocery app Grosh (version 4.4).
Share to Grosh
You might have tried our Recipe Plugin for Chrome for normal your desktop computer. You can now share a link from another app to Grosh to either bookmark recipe or add item to list – straight on your mobile device. Here’s how to invoke the function on your phone or tablet:
- iOS: In Safari, pick a recipe page and then tap the share button at the top of Safari (“arrow up”) and select Grosh as the app to share to. Note: Sometimes, iOS does not detect the installed sharing capability until the next restart of the device.
- Android: In Chrome, pick a recipe page and then tap the … menu at the top of Chrome and then select “Share” and select Grosh as the app to share to.
After you’ve selected that you want to share to Grosh, Grosh prompts you how to store the link. You can select to “Bookmark recipe” or “Add item” to a list.
Thus, if you found a nice product in a webshop, you can select to share the link to Grosh and then simply tap “Add item”. Note that the list last selected in the Grosh will be used.
The share to app functionality differs a bit on the two platforms. If you’re on iOS, we add the link in the background to the Grosh servers. On Android we can bring up the app to let you finalise the entry of the recipe or list item before it is added.
Improved list syncing
We’ve had reports about lists not syncing properly and analyzed this in depth. First of all, if the user was changing the list during an auto-sync (which happens in the background) the changes got lost. This is now fixed. The second problem we found was that some list changes collided with list changes performed by another user and made sync fail. This is also fixed.
Easy access to member cards
If you’re at a location with know stores, the sorting button (arrow up/down) top right lets you select the store you’re at. But now you can also do something new at the “Select store” screen – it lets you display your member card. This makes it easy for you to claim your benefits.
Note: Just as before, if you’ve chosen a store and starts marking items as bought, the member card icon appears to right in the app to remind you to claim your benefits. The new thing is just that you can easily show the member card without marking anything as bought on the list.
- Now runs without granting location permissions
- Fixed a bug caused an app crash if you did not runt the app with location permissions
- Supports startup in offline mode and later re-connect to server
- Fixed the “Unauthorised access” warning that has been reported by some users.
- Caches translated app strings in case of starting app offline
- The app UI was previously in English if updated texts could not be fetched from the server. The app now runs in your selected language using cached translation strings when offline.
- Improved quality check of crowdsourced data
- We saw e.g. milk had been added as a brand. Grosh parses every grocery added, and extracts brand name to isolate the actual grocery in question. this helps Grosh do statistics on your grocery usage and make better suggestions. However, this logic requires better quality of global brands, which we now think we have. Let us know if you spot problems!

- Fix screens that did not resize properly on tablets
