Today, Grosh – the intelligent shopping list app – ships with predictive data entry. It’s the first shopping list app using this vastly improved system for data entry. Grosh now also has support for the big display of the new iPhone X – the long format for the screen is ideal for your shopping list. Read on to learn more about the improvements in Grosh version 2.3.
Predictive data entry
In Grosh, you can avoid typing in groceries on your list, as the app does bookeeping in the background in order of what you’ve previously bought and when it’s time to buy it again. This means you can just swipe suggestions to get stuff on your list. Or you find a recipe and tap a button to add the ingredients to the list.
However, many users still type in groceries a lot of the time, so we’ve been trying to solve the problem of typing the least and getting the best matching list shown.
Normally, the app searches the global list of groceries in your language to find the shortest matching groceries matching what you’re typing. To make grocery entry even simpler and more consistent, just type few characters and if there’s a match to something that is frequently bought, it will be a the top of the normal match list. Try it out – it’s like magic – grocery entry is now much better. And Grosh is the only shopping list app on the market with this great feature!
What’s the first you will install on an iPhone X?
Grosh of course! We now support the long format of the iPhone X 5.8” display – it’s ideal for long shopping lists. At the same time, we’ve made a few adjustments to optimise the app in general for iOS 11.
Option to share list read-only
Upon user request, we’ve added a new way to share your list: a read-only version can be sent over mail to recipient. This is handy when you want to share a list, but don’t want to give full access to the list within the app. Just enter the email as you normally do when sharing the list – but then hit the “Share read-only” button and Grosh will show you a pre-filled mail with the contents of the list ready for you to send. Could be used with shopping lists or perhaps even more relevant with wish lists also supported by Grosh.
Easier barcode scanning
If you’ve been using barcode scanning in Grosh in bad lighting conditions, you’ll be happy about this new feature. Tap the “torch” icon in the barcode scanning screen if there’s little light and barcode recognition will be much better!
We’ve done various other improvements, amongst others:
- iOS always shows keyboard toolbar, using selection lists is now easier
- Done button on keyboard ads topmost item in match list
- Selection lists sometimes missing DONE button to dismiss list
- Two trips in different stores after each other are not stored in separate trips
- Tap header to change list shows wrong item count
- Trip screen header does not show time correctly
- When offline disable settings change and show info screens
- Premium users have both FAQ and support access from menu
- More readable list selection screen (bolder fonts)
Our Apple Watch version is now ready in version 1.0 and we’ve looking for beta testers. Please get in touch with us to help test it out. We’re also looking for webshops that would be happy to take order from Grosh – if you know someone with a webshop, point them in our direction 🙂
