Buy Me a Pie!
Grocery shopping help

Ever get back from the store only to find that your spouse or child was desperate for an ingredient you didn’t get? Whether they needed extra flour for a papier-mache volcano or brownie mix for a potluck, it’s never fun to have to turn around and go back to the store. Buy Me a Pie! lets users see their lists and update in real time. The app uses text prediction as you type and learns your preferences — not that useful for items such as eggs, but one that earns its keep with things such as Worcestershire sauce.

The app also tags food items and groups them in an attempt to predict what ingredients may be near each other in your grocery aisles. The app’s paid version ($5.99) for iOS devices lets you manage multiple lists and has additional syncing features with the service’s Web site. Free for Android and iOS devices.
