  • Awful UI

    By OpMav
    I usually reserve two star reviews for apps I really, really hate. This app is well built and perfectly functional, but any custom themes are paywalled. There are plenty of other free apps on the market that don’t hold back on providing a decent UI, so for this reason, among its competition this app earns one star.
  • Awesome program

    By Eb9934
    Have used many lists! This one FAR surpasses any other. My hubby and I are now always on the same page. I also Lov Lov Lov being able to import recipes. Try it free. I promise after you start using it, you will purchase the full version.
  • Best list manager ever!

    By Taterguy
    Have been using the free version for 4 days and am amazed with the thought that went into designing this app. We have 4 mobile devices in my family. AnyList keeps all my lists. From my iPad Pro I sync my shopping list with 2 iPhones and another iPad. My wife makes entries using this app on her iPad. Edits ripple across all devices instantly. If she forgets and adds an item into Reminder problem. It’s automatically exported into AnyList. The fact that it interacts with Reminders, Alexa and Paprika (my recipe management db) makes this app a hub for all my list creation/management chores. What’s most impressive is the ease with which I can edit, move, categorize and add notes to list items individually or in batch mode. The developers provide context sensitive help screens and frequent email tip sheets. This app is addictive.

  • Apple Watch series 4

    By ajda
    I have been using AnyList for awhile now on my watch and have come to depend on it so when I got my new Apple Watch series 4 today and went to set it up, one of the first apps I looked for was the AnyList complication to put on one of the new watch faces but found it missing in the complication list. The available complications on the new face list was much shorter than usual so I tried an older watch face that I had been using and found the app missing there too so I went into the Watch app on my iPhone and saw that the app was now uninstalled. When I tried to reinstall it I saw a message saying the developer needs to update and the install icon just kept spinning without installing so I sent a message to the developer telling him what happened and asking when the next update would be. I got an immediate reply saying that I should be able to install the app on the new watch on an older face so I tried again and he was right this time the install went through as did the complication on one of the Watch modular faces. I am happy to have gotten such a fast response and help from the developer so I can again use this great app on my new watch! Thanks very much.
  • Love it!

    I have been using Any List for years now. It is such an easy to use tool. I use it mostly for grocery list but also to-do, menu planning and holiday/birthday planning. Great app!
  • Great Functionality & Terrific Customer Service too!

    By kathykc
    AnyList is one of the most useful apps I have found. My partner & I both use it & share lists so whoever is out can run errands, get groceries, etc. We have also used it to breakdown big projects into steps and arranged them in the order they need to be done. Recently I couldn’t make a list work how I wanted it to, so I emailed for help. Not only did I get a well thought out response, John stuck with me thru several rounds of emails until I got it working how I wanted it. All that & I use the free version. Now I’m considering upgrading since I know I will get good service when I need it. Thanks for a great app!
  • My favorite app

    By Karrots125
    I’m a busy mom of 4 and need total functionality in an app and although I’d love an all-in-one solution to my whole life, AnyList is as close as anyone has been able to get. I use AnyList for all our food meal & menu and grocery shopping, as well as to organize party planning, events and travel or maintenance type lists, Birthday wishlists, etc. The easy conversion between what you plan to cook/eat and what you actually need at the grocery store is the absolute best...I’ve tried many and this one is easiest to add or take away ahead of time or on the fly. It has total flexibility for adding and naming new items. I love that I can assign stores so I don’t wander around trying to remember where I got that one thing everyone liked so much...and don’t forget things while I’m out. I can’t wait to add the pricing feature to watch my food budget more closely. It’s great for sending hubby or grandparents to get a few items too because you can have pics so they don’t come back with something crazy. There are only two flaws in AnyList that I would love to see improved...1) there is currently no way to save meal plans by day or week so they can easily be reused. 2) I can’t remember the other one, so it must not be a huge deal, lol. I rarely pay for apps, but after using it on trial decided it’s completely worth it and have even just renewed my subscription. I use it nearly every day. I would recommend this for anyone looking for flexible, efficient and effective solutions for staying organized.
  • AnyList is EXCELLENT

    By galbiez
    The developers thought of it all. Easy to use and easily customizable. This is the third list program I have tried. The others pale in comparison.
