Add a new item

  2. Choose Delete.

Postpone item

If you decided not to buy an item during your shopping trip, you could postpone it until next checkout. Here’s the scenario:

  1. Long-tap an item > Postpone
  2. The item is hidden from the list.
  3. Check other items > tap Checkout
  4. Postponed items will be placed on shopping list again.

You can use Sort and filter command in Side Menu to show All / Current or Postponed only.

Sort and filter

By default, items are grouped by aisles and are not sorted by name so you could reorder items manually. Default sort options are specified under Menu > Settings > Options > Sort options.

If you would like to change default sort options, tap Side menu > Sort and filter > uncheck Use default sort options.

Move items to a different shopping list

To move an item to a different shopping list use the following steps:

  1. Open Edit Item screen by clicking on the right of an item in shopping list.
  2. Click Shopping list property.
  3. Select shopping list you would like to move item to.
  4. The item is moved to a different shopping list.

Assign items to multiple stores

In order to assign items to multiple stores it will require a Master list, say “Groceries”, and a few sub-lists which would represent your stores, say “Whole Foods” and “Costco”. If you assign an item to Groceries, it will be listed under Groceries, Whole Foods and Costco. If you assign item directly to a store’s list, it will be listed under that store and under Master list e.g. Groceries.

Please see Manage shopping lists User’s Guide for more details on how to get your Master list configured.

    the dictation does not work as shown in help screen and product demo.
    when i say ‘peroxide and orange juice and distilled water’, the words just sit in the search field. when i tap to select, it dumps them all into one line instead of displaying separate items.

    i must be skipping a simple step. can you advise?

    • Alex says:

      Josephine, kindly note that there are two microphone buttons. Please make sure that you are using the one on the app’s toolbar, not the one on the popup keyboard.
      Please let me know if you have any further questions or comments.

    Is there any way to add tax?

  3. Sterling Johnson says:

    Barcode scanner+ does not work. The number matches but the product description is different.

    • Alex says:

      Hi Sterling, thanks for your feedback. Could you please give an example of a couple of incorrect items? Thank you. Please note that description can be fixed in the app after you scan an item and it will remain in the app going forward.

    Love my MG app, most used app I have. Two little problems though since getting a new phone. I synced my list over (or thought I did), but doesn’t seem as though it brought over all my edited items, such a prices and details. Also .. when I go to add an item to my list, it automatically goes to Edit mode every time.

    • Alex says:

      Dave, if you don’t want to open Edit screen, please uncheck “Details mode” option under Menu > Settings > Options.

      As for sync troubles, please contact us at hi@mightypocket.com with your Account ID so we could have a closer look. Thank you.

    It would be nice to have an icon on the notification bar of the phone to show there is a list needing done

    • Alex says:

      Chris, do you mean you’d like a record on the notification bar whenever you have outstanding items or only when new items are added to your list from another handset through shared shopping lists?

  6. Bill says:

    Hi Alex, I would like to be able to view a shopping list with filters set to “All” and still be able to recognize an item as something I have postponed. This would be useful when scanning in an item that has been used up into a shopping list. Currently the behavior when scanning in an item to a list, when filter is set to “Current” AND the item already exists in the list but is postponed, it for it to appear as if the scan didn’t work (no op). If I set the filter to “All” and scan in my exhausted items, I have the opportunity to edit the all ready existing entry, but there is no indication that the item has been postponed. Would you add a symbol or indicator of some kind in list view to show that an item has been postponed? Or perhaps I’m missing something…

    • Alex says:

      Bill, thanks for the heads-up. We look into this before the next update. Perhaps scanning postponed item when filter set to “Current” should move the item from “Postponed” to “Current” state. Please let me know if you have any further questions or comments.

  7. Chiu says:

    Hi, I was wondering if you could add a place to indicate package quantity that doesn’t involve compare mode? Thanks.

    • Alex says:

      Chiu, thanks for your question. We recommend using Details field to indicate item packaging (tap Name field and enter Details as 2nd line or long-tap Name field > Details). Also you could use Comments field. Please let me know if you have any further questions or comments.

  8. Diane says:

    What is the difference between the “master list” and the “pick list”?

    • Alex says:

      Hi Diane, thanks for your question. Master list is a way of grouping a few sub-lists in a single listing. Pick list is a product catalog which consists of the preset catalog and items which you add to your shopping lists. Please let me know if you have any further questions or comments.

  9. Laura says:
