MyCart by AppGenius
I might be one of the few people out there that actually enjoys grocery shopping.  I can't tell you though how many times I have sat down and made a shopping list and then realized when I got to the store I left it at home. I'd even given up making lists, but inevitably I return home and have forgotten to buy a key item. So either way, I was losing. Then I discovered MyCart for BlackBerry.

MyCart by AppGenius isn't a new app, and in fact we've covered it a few times in the blogs here at CrackBerry. It's been awhile though, and I figured if I hadn't heard of it, then maybe some of you haven't either. This is more than just a list app, or memo pad. MyCart has a ton of features to make shopping easier, and help you budget! There is a free version and a paid version to choose from.

Features include:

  • Add/Edit/Delete items
  • Email/Import Lists
  • Custom Highlight Colours
  • Automatic Backup & Restore!
  • Optional Quantity, Aisle, Prices fields
  • Convenient 'Send to Clipboard' for emails
  • Ticked items pushed to the bottom of the list
  • List status indicator (i.e. Complete, x items left, Empty)
  • "Budget Minder" get warned if you go over budget and by how much.
Additional Features in MyCart Pro:
  • Searching
  • Flag/unflag all items
  • Hide Unflagged &/or Checked items
  • Auto Suggest (Suggests items entered previously)
  • Blackberry to Blackberry Sync (Manual & Automatic) with Sync Alert
  • Fully Customizable List (Includes more colors (Banner and LED color same as Ticked color)
MyCart is available for BlackBerry 82xx, 83xx, 85xx, 87xx, 88xx, 89xx, 9000, 93xx, 96xx, and 9700. It doesn't look like either version is ready for BB6 yet, but hopefully in the future it will be!

I've used HoneyDew and now using OurGroceries which is a cross platform app. Would love to see a review comparing these type apps. I have been very satisfied with OurGroceries.

Agreed. OurGroceries works great. The cross-platform is wonderful (considering my wife uses a Droid). Auto-updating seems smooth. Makes grocery shopping MUCH easier.

I came across and downloaded this app last night. Memopad just doesn't work very well for lists. This looks very promising, my favorite part is the automatic backup it does. Going to give this its first real run here very soon at the grocery store.

I didn't realize the Pro version will do BlackBerry to BlackBerry syncing, that alone is probably worth the dollar for the app.

Great post though, a list app should be on every BlackBerry, everyone uses lists, RIM should even put one right into their OS.

Thanks for the info. I never thought it necessary for an additional list app and I've always used the native MemoPad for any lists. While it works great for small lists with a few items, with larger lists like groceries, that might have up to 20 or 30 items it would be hard to tell what you allready had in your cart. I like the fact that you can check off your items as you go so there's no confusion about what you've allready picked up.

I use Our Groceries. I add things to the list along with what my wife puts on with her phone and she does the shopping. No more magnet with a pen and list on the refrigerator. I was never near it when I thought of what I needed so things never got on the list. Now it's like putting an order up in the cloud and like magic, it appears a few days (or sooner) later.

It does show $.99 for me when I click on the link for the premium version. In the developer's description in the free version it says $2.99, so I'm not sure if they lowered the price and didn't change the description or what.

I use Lister.

It is a great app for any kind of lists and it is free!

Lists can be shared between BlackBerries via email.
