Our Sideload This series features a variety of Android apps that we think are worth loading up on your BlackBerry
In our first installment of Sideload This we checked out a cool app that I love called Paperkarma.
Today we move to another app that I use almost daily - Out of Milk.
Out of Milk is a simple shopping list utility that syncs with your account, so it makes for a great app for families that need to manage one or more lists. The cool thing about Out of Milk is that it not only has a shopping list, but a to-do list, pantry list and local grocery deals as well.
I was a Cozi user on my Bold 9900, but as they haven't yet added support for BlackBerry 10, I started looking into other options. Thankfully I came across Out of Milk (thanks Tim!)
Using the app is easy - just register for an account, the start making your lists. You can easily add items through the app itself or from the handy web interface. The list will sync up in a few seconds so you never miss a beat.
When adding items, you can specify the item name, quantity, price, category and even add notes. You can also cut out the hard work and use the built-in UPC scanner to quickly add items. This is probably my most used feature - when I run out of something I just scan it and I'm good to go.
Out of Milk can really be a useful tool if you manage one or more lists in your family. I installed the app on my wife's Z10 and now we're totally in sync when it comes to food shopping every week. Just use the same account login on both devices and everything syncs right up.
