Please welcome the Beta release of Mighty Grocery Shopping List. What does a change from “Preview” to “Beta” means? Two things. First, we have accomplished all major features for the first stable release. Second, the shopping list app looks very stable and we are about to ship the official release 1.0.
So, what’s new in the new Beta release of Mighty Grocery Shopping List 0.9?
- Aisles. Mmmm. Now you can organize aisles in your shopping lists according to your tastes and/or store layouts. You may have different aisles configurations for different shopping lists. And you can change aisles name to the wording you like in shopping lists. Also you can change aisles order to match your store configuration during for improved shopping with Mighty Grocery list.
- Pick. Convenient catalog of products grouped by aisles. Click on aisle to see all items inside of it. Click on a product to add it to a shopping list. Yep, it’s that easy!
- Search across all items. If you like adding items to shopping list using search and type, you will enjoy this feature. It posts shopping list items into product search catalog which makes them immediately available for your next searches.
- New command icons. Shopping list and home screen get enhanced command buttons so you could enjoy even better design.
- Availability for Android 1.6. We initially did not plan to adopt Mighty Grocery Shopping List to Android OS versions prior to 2.1 due to a voice recognition feature we love so much. Nevertheless in the moment of curiosity, we ran our shopping list unit tests against Android 1.6 and they were all green except for the voice feature. So we decided to add Android 1.6 to the list of versions supported by our shopping list. We believe there are enough great shopping list features in Mighty Grocery besides awesome voice recognition.

The application is available on Android Market starting October 10th, 2010.
