This review is written from the perspective of a long-time Palm HandyShopper user, who switched to SplashShopper on the iPod Touch.
There are numerous shopping apps for various platforms, all of which offer the basic "have a list, check off which items you need, check them off when you've bought them" functionality. Beyond that, the single feature that we used most in HandyShopper was the ability to associate a single item with multiple stores - and track aisles at each of those stores. As in, cereal is in aisle 5 at store A, aisle 3 at store B, and aisle 9 in store C. This gave us the ability to sort by aisle regardless of which nearby major store we happened to shop at.
Until we found SplashShopper, we had zero luck finding any other tool that offered this capability. Unfortunately, while SplashShopper is a wonderfully full-featured tool, its iPod / iPhone implementation is notoriously slow - to the point of being unusable.
With our new Android, we'd just about resigned ourselves to doing without the aisle functionality - when a chance search turned up ToMarket. SUCCESS!
ToMarket also implements some of the same tools you'll find in other Android-based shopping list applications, such as voice input and barcode scanning.
The good: Much faster than SplashShopper. Most of the same functionality. Very usable.
The bad: Not easy to share lists among other users. You can email the list of "needs" to someone, and if you've filtered by a store and sorted by aisle, the emailed list is also sorted, filtered, and displays the aisle. So it's certainly usable for sharing, but other apps such as GroceryIQ and OurGroceries (which sync among multiple users automatically over the air) definitely have ToMarket beat there.
For more comprehensive sharing, ToMarket works like SplashShopper (desktop sync, at an extra cost, then you have to import the entire database to the other user, and sync back), or HandyShopper, where you could beam the entire database via IR - again, overwriting the entire database. With ToMarket, you have to export/backup your entire list, get that export file to the other user, and import it onto the other handheld. You can do this via email or a service such as Dropbox, but it can be clumsy.
My original review noted that "ToMarket also lacks the ability to store prices by store". I can't believe I haven't revisited that comment yet: you can indeed now store per-store prices for an item. I seem to recall I had to tweak a setting to enable it. I still don't use it often, but there are a few things I buy often enough, and at enough different stores, that it can be useful to be able to see what their prices are.
Alternative input methods: Like many other recent apps (such as GroceryIQ and OurGroceries), ToMarket allows you to scan barcodes to add something to your list. This isn't something I use all that often - it's faster to just type the name. Plus, I don't usually record full brand names, just generic terms like "Elbow Macaroni" or "Tomatoes, Stewed". You can also use voice input to add items and/or move things to the needed list.
Like any other shopping list application, ToMarket can create multiple lists - e.g. "books to read", "things to pack for vacation" and the like.
My bottom line: You have to decide which major feature is your own dealbreaker: ease of sharing / coordinating lists (anything but ToMarket), or single item / multiple stores (ToMarket is the only choice).
I'm coming from Handyshopper also and this is a great replacement for it. I've tried about 5 other shopping apps, including purchased ones. They all have too many features that get in the way. On most of those other apps, if you use aisles, you have to choose/create your grocery list by aisle. Not with this app, you can create your list alphabetically and then just sort it by aisle while shopping.
The only bad thing is Amazon has this app as not compatible with tablets (Xoom), so it will not allow me to install it. I have the Lite version of this app installed on the tablet and it works great. So not very happy about that at all.
I would recommend ToMarket Grocery Shopping List Pro. I am still learning how to use but it is user friendly and I like it over the other grocery shopping apps I tried. I wish I had a smartphone to use the barcode app in the program. I have not figured out if there is a camera app for Kindle Fire, but still satisfied with the ability to shop with it.
