The Grosh grocery app is out in a new version, this time with focus on attention to detail. We’ve had lots of inputs since our first version, so here’s Grosh version 1.2 with a bunch of improvements as we’re working to perfect the core functionality in Grosh!
Managing your own stores
Grosh comes preloaded with a set of grocery stores per country. Until now users have been able to add their own stores on top of the global list. Now we’ve now made it easy to fully manage your own stores under Settings, including adding, editing and deleting them. We’ve also made “add store” available on all store selection lists to make it east to add your own stores, wherever you are in the app.
The stores you use the most are now shown at the top of all store selection lists. This makes it easier to tag grocery items for a particular store, or mark a geo-location with a store name.
Keep the screen unlocked
Whilst shopping, it is time consuming if the screen locks, and you have to unlock it to find the next grocery to shop. Grosh now disables the automatic screen lock whilst the app is in the foreground, so now you don’t have to worry about tapping the screen to keep the phone from locking.
Add items from previous purchases
Previously you could add new grocery items from the suggestions screen or entering them manually at the top of the grocery list. Now you can also right-swipe an item from the green history screen to re-add the item to the grocery list.
You’re in a store?
We added info bubbles in version 1.2 to explain features in Grosh a bit. We’ve adjusted so that you should not be bothered with the bubbles as often. And we also discovered a bug about registering a location as not-a-store. If you were at home and swiped some items a couple of times, then Grosh thought a store was located at the geo-position of your home. If you marked your home as “not a store” in the question mark menu, but this has now been fixed.
Grosh now handles locations with multiple stores located nearby better, and should no longer prompt you multiple times during shopping trip for what store you’re in. We’ve also made it easier to tap the store name to filter the grocery list for a specific store.
So all in all, a lot of improvements on the core features in Grosh. We will continue this work, so make sure you send us your inputs.
