If you’re one to forget your grocery list, scribbled on a piece of paper, every time you head out to shop for groceries, this is the app for you. Create a virtual list right on your smartphone with OurGroceries so you know exactly what you need to buy and can stay away from making impulse purchases. The best feature of all? You can share the list with others. So you and your partner can add items as you think of them, and updates will be done in real time, creating one consolidated list to make shopping a cinch.

Available: iTunes, Android

Users say: “After a half hour of experimenting with this app, my spouse and I decided to use it for all shopping that we need to collaborate on. We created shopping lists for Groceries, Hardware, Costco, and Nursery. The user interface is fairly simple and intuitive. The sync feature works great. If I add something to the list while my spouse is driving to the store, I know she’ll see it when she gets there. The ad banner isn’t too obtrusive, but if I end up using the app as much as I think I will, I’ll probably pay the $5 to remove it.”

Price: Free
