Plans for Mighty Grocery Shopping List App

Please take our survey to increase priority of features you would like to see sooner.

If you are waiting for the iOS version, fill this form to be the first to know when the app is available or to participate in Beta testing.

What to expect in the next update?

We are working on the iOS version and making it easier to sync your grocery data. In the next version of Android app, Mighty Grocery will instantly sync all changes of your grocery data to online account and between devices. And we mean all changes. Not only your shopping lists will sync, but also Pick list, Recipes, Meal Plans, History.

Due to the changes, some existing advanced sync features will not be available. First, since all data will be sync’d instantly, there is no longer need for Backup on cloud. Second, if your app was signed in to multiple accounts, all lists will be assigned to your primary account. If you wish to continue using multiple accounts you will have to re-assign them manually. Finally, it won’t be possible to selectively sync lists. I.e. all lists in the account will be sync’d. However it will be possible to create another local account and place local-only lists there.

Transition progress to the new version will require a few steps: 1) on primary device push all data to cloud; 2) on secondary handsets, pull all data from cloud. Once this is done, all changes will be instantaneous and automatic. Before transition the app will automatically create backup on your phone, so we will be able to assist you to recover your data if anything goes wrong.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding transition to the new version, feel free to contact us at hi@mightypocket.com.

Plans going forward*:

  1. Advanced Web UI. This will also allow easier view & modification of product catalog, recipes, history. Pricing TBD.
  2. Export History and Product catalog from the app in CSV format.
  3. Recipes catalog. Integrate with existing products/sites and introduce improvements to recipe feature.
  4. Coupons.  Separate app and/or integration with existing apps.

Under consideration:

  1. Adjust shopping list subtotal. This can be manually added/subtracted amount to shopping list subtotal or applied discount.

  9. Do not round unit price and/or allow configuring decimal places.
  10. Group items and group barcodes under product/item/umbrella.

    First & foremost…GREAT app! One of the better shopping apps I’ve checked out!

    As someone mentioned/suggested before…. Sub-catagories would be great, though not for dif. brands, but for instance:

    Canned Goods
    Veggies
    Fruits
    Meats (ie: tuna, chicken, SPAM, etc.)
    Soup

    Or however you want to do it. This would be particularly useful for Warehouse/Club-like storrs like Costco & Sam’s Club (here in the states) that do/may have odd catagorizings like:
    Canned & Packaged foods – condiments, oils & sauces – oils, vinegars & sauces.

    • Alex says:

      Hi David, thanks a lot for your feedback! Unfortunately, subcategories are unlikely to appear in our app because it would complicate application support and usage. Thank you for understanding.

  2. Tammy says:

    Is there a way to add another store?

  3. Daniel says:

    It would be nice if there were an option to calculate taxes from gross prices instead of net prices. Like it works for now you only have the option to add the tax to a price instead of calculate the tax within the gross price correctly. Everywhere i only see gross prices, so the option to set taxes seems to be useless, because I have to calculate every single net price manually. In germany there only gross prices with included taxes. Dont know how it is in other countries.

    • Alex says:

      Daniel, thanks for your feedback. Kindly note that tax feature is adopted for U.S. market. In european market you may want to ignore this option completely and use gross prices all times. Please let me know if you have any further questions or comments.

    hello. it would be nice to sync list with many devices. I own a restaurant and i would be nice to group lists with other partners.

  5. Luis says:

    Great app, It would be great if you add an option that when you tick an item is ask you for the price. Its very annoying that I have to edit the item itself every time I add something to my cart

    • Alex says:

      Hi Luis, thanks for your feedback!

      Kindly note that the app will ask you for the price if the following conditions are met:
      1. Menu –> Settings –> Options –> Details mode is ON.
      2. You tap checkbox (not in the center of an item) to put an item in cart.

      Please let me know if you have any further questions or comments.

  6. Brice says:

    I just bought the app and am really liking it so far. I saw that you were considering adding the ability to group items. I think that would be an excellent way to list different brands of the same product types, for example, different brands of bacon or black olives. Maybe there can be a way to list different product brands under the pick list item, like:

    Bacon>
    John Morrell Bacon
    Everyday Essential Bacon

    I’m guessing I’d like more of a sub-category option for the pick-list.

    Thanks

    • Alex says:

      Brice, thanks a lot for your feedback and suggestion. We may consider adding groups as you suggest going forward, but unfortunately it will get lower priority for foreseen future. Thank you for understanding.

  7. Roger says:

    Provide a notification sound so when my wife adds to list I will know about it so I can pick item up or visa_versa. We love this app. Keep up the good work.

  8. Gary says:

    Is there any chance of adding other shopping lists such as supper store in Canada

  9. mauro says:

    any plan about the possibility to enter into the applestore? my girlfriend unfortunately have an iphone. :-)

    • Alex says:

      Yes, the iOS version is under development, but unfortunately there is no specific date it will become available. Thank you for you patience.

  10. Clarissa S says:

    This has been the best grocery list app I’ve found so far. I’m looking forward to seeing the app updates as changes are made!

    A few suggestions. Sorry if it’s been mentioned in the comments already, but I didn’t see them in the items that are being considered.

    1. For the coupon/discount section, can multiple coupons be available to add? Such as applying a sale price AND a coupon or a store coupon and a manufacturer coupon (which many stores allow)?

    2. There are often sales requiring you to buy multiple items and get one free. Can that Buy 1, get X free be changed to Buy x, get x free with defaults of 1 set?

    3. This may be what someone else mentioned, but totals for the list appear when nothing is in the cart. It would be nice to have a total for what you still need to purchase as well as an “in cart” total.

    • Alex says:

      Clarissa, thanks a lot for your feedback.
      1. Unfortunately, multiple discounts are not supported.
      2. Ability to buy X get Y free may be considered going forward.
      3. By default, the app shows two separate totals: List (remaining) and Cart. More details can be displayed for Cart section when the following setting is ON: Meny –> Settings –> Options –> Show subtotal summary. We have plans to show total which includes List (remaining) and Cart. Is this something you are looking for?

      Thanks.
