Mighty Grocery Shopping List: Getting started

Lets get started with a few basic concepts which would help you use Mighty Grocery app efficiently.

Tab Bar

First of all, there is a Tab Bar on the top of the main screen. The current tab is highlighted and centered inside the tab. If you are on Lists tab, you may also see All lists, Pick and a piece of Favorites. Needless to say that clicking any of those tabs will activate them.

The Tab Bar is scrollable. If you grab the Tab Bar and scroll it, several hidden tabs show up: HistoryAisles, and More.

Toolbar & Sidebar

Second, below the Tab Bar is a Toolbar which contains a few buttons of your choice and the Side menu button (upper-right corner). Long-tap the Side menu button to show Sidebar.

Single click on a button will launch corresponding function like Add item, Voice recognition, Scan Barcode, or Quick Edit.  Long clicking a button will move it from/to Sidebar. In other words, long click a button on the Toolbar to move it to Sidebar. Or long click a button on Sidebar to move it back to Toolbar.

Note: Only combination of top 4 buttons can be moved to Toolbar from Sidebar (Add item, Voice recognition, Scan Barcode, or Quick Edit).

Side menu

Third, single tap on Side menu button will show Side menu with all commands available in shopping list. It’s a great way to learn which icon corresponds to which action.


Context Menu

Fourth, long-tapping an a row will bring up a Context Menu. Context menu of a shopping list item consists of the following options:

  • Undo – rollback any previous change to shopping list
  • Edit – open Edit Item Details screen
  • Delete – removes item without placing it in history
  • Select All – checks all items
  • Clear Selection – removes check from all items

Options Menu

Finally, clicking phone’s Menu button will show the Options Menu. Common commands in Options menu include:

  • Undo – rollback any previous change to shopping list
  • Delete All – removes all items without placing them in history
  • Settings – shows configuration screen
  • Help – opens this help page

    Just downloaded lite to try before up grading because my friend showed me how the woolworths apt works (Australia). Thought yours is much better and particularly liked the voice recognition feature. However that feature doesn’t work very well and after trying 5 times for it to recognise simple words like ‘bread crumbs’ I decided not to get the full version. Pity because it is easier to say your shopping list then type it. Will consider it when some improvement is made

      Hi Gail, thanks for your feedback. Kindly note that voice recognition is a standard Android API offered by Google which works pretty good. I’d recommend making sure that English language is selected in voice recognition section, or you may want to try selecting English (U.S.) if it is available in Home –> Menu –> Settings –> Voice Input & output –> Voice recognizer settings –> Language.

      Thanks and I look forward to hearing from you again.

    I have just download the Lite version to try it before I buy the full featured version. I have customized my aisles and have added my grocery items into “My Pick List” through the manual entry. If I am correct the only way that my “List” is populated is to select from the “Pick List”. However, I can not determine how to apply this list to a specific store since the “List” does not populate until a selection is made and the store cannot be selected from the “Pick List” grocery items. Maybe I am using the software incorrectly and should have populated the “List” but then I would not know how to create a shopping list that would be cleared after I check out. H-E-L-P.

      Hi Roger, thank you for your interest in our app and your question.

      Kindly note that adding items from Pick list is not the only way to populate a shopping list. You may want to consider adding items from Favorites or History as well as using Add button (Plus) under List tab.

      If you would like to store your items per store, the List-specific favorites might be helpful.

      Please let me know if you have any further questions.

    When I was trying out the lite version, it didn’t list the aisles in the list. I figured it would when I bought the full version and yet it doesn’t. The preview screens show aisles so I’m not sure what is wrong.

    Just downloaded the Lite version yesterday and am still feeling it out. From what I can tell already this app is awesome. I have Never paid for an app before, but this may be the first. I like it that much. Great work!

    My wife and I both have Motorola Droid phones and had been using another app for grocery lists. Lately we have been having lots of problems with it syncing so I purchased the Mighty Grocery app. I have tried to figure out from the instructions how we can sync the list between our phones and have not been able to figure it out. We usually shop together but go in different directions in the store so it is handy to have the list sync when one of us picks up an item. Does she have to purchase the app also for her phone in order for us to both have the list and be able to sync?

      Hi John, thank you for your interest in our app and your question.

      Assuming that you have a list (or maybe a few lists) to share with your wife I’d recommend the following steps to get your phones sync’d:
      1. On phone #1: go to Menu –> Settings –> Accounts.
      2. Tap Add button (plus) if there is no account yet.
      3. Open account for editing and make sure to fill in Email and Owner password fields.
      4. Tap Cloud actions button –> Push lists –> Choose lists you’d like to share with your wife –> Push lists.
      5. On phone #2: go to Menu –> Settings –> Accounts.
      6. Make sure that Accounts list is empty. If it’s not, remove all records by long-tapping and choosing Delete from popup menu.
      7. Tap Login button (Keys) and enter your Email and Owner password –> OK.
      8. Under Edit account tab choose Account actions –> Pull lists –> Choose all lists –> Pull lists.
      9. From now on your lists should be sync’d.

      For more details please see Sync with cloud User’s Guide.

      As for the app version, yes, both phones need to have Full version installed in order to get sync’d.

      Please let me know if you have any further questions.

    Help. My tab bar will not scroll so that I can see the Aisles tab to edit them. Any sugestions.

    • Alex says:

      Hi Judith, thanks for your question.

      It is strange that the tab bar won’t scroll. Anyhow, you can access Aisles in Menu –> Settings –> Aisles.

      Please let me know if you have any further questions.

    So far it does a lot of things. But I don’t think it will sync with my laptop. I hope I don’t have to type in items and update store rows on my phone. Let me know if there is a way I can have the list on my laptop and sync with my phone. I would like to enter information on my laptop and have it synced with my phone. I have had the SplashData program for years. I like that I can print the list if I need to.
