You’re probably familiar with the situation: someone took the last milk without adding it to the shopping list. With our latest update to Grosh, version 1.8 of the intelligent grocery app, there’s no excuse. Even a child can scan grocery barcode to add an item to the shopping list.
Scan grocery barcode to add an item
At the top of the grocery list, you can now add groceries by either typing in the text field OR tapping the new barcode button to scan a barcode. If the system knows the barcode, the recognised grocery will be shown with a “Add to list” button.
If the item is not yet in the system, you will be prompted to enter the grocery name and then press Add to list. The system will quickly get smarter as it learns from all user inputs.
Add image to recipe
Previously, you could only add a photo to a recipe if you created a recipe linking to an external site. If you specify a URL in the Source field, then Grosh scans the URL for images and lets you tap through them to select the right image for your recipe shortcut.
If you’re adding your own recipe or something found offline, then you had no way to add a picture – until now. When adding a recipe or editing one, just press the camera button to snap a picture and store it for the recipe. Press the camera button again to replace it with another, or cancel the camera not to assign a photo to the recipe.
You can now easily access info about a shopping trip, just tap the info icon top right on the list of groceries. We’ve also tweaked how crowdsourced prices works. Grosh shows prices on “global” groceries for your language, i.e. groceries that a lot of people are using. Grosh now only prompts for prices for such items instead of all items.
We’ve optimized performance in various places and also ironed out a few issues:
- Filtering grocery list did not work for store names with space in them
- Pressing edit on another user’s recipe did not create a writable copy
- Corrected grocery quantity not shown after purchase
- Price list should be sorted within category and when searching
If you enjoy using Grosh and would like to support ongoing development and keep Grosh ad-free, please consider upgrading to Grosh Premium which will become available shortly. All funds from the upgrade will be used for product improvements and operations.
You might also note there’s camera button on the grocery details screen – adding own images for a grocery in order for your partner to get the right item, and a bunch of other new features will become available in the upcoming Grosh Premium version 🙂
Please keep your inputs coming, so we know what you would like us to improve.
