    I would like to use recipes, but would prefer to input on my computer…copy/paste
    is this possable?

    • Alex says:

      Mary, thank you for your question. Unfortunately, entering recipes from your computer is not supported in Mighty Grocery yet. We plan to make this available going forward.

    The latest update has the voice recognition button burried further into the app. How fo I move it back to the opening screen?

    • Alex says:

      Kari, to move microphone button on top, just open the Sidebar (Side Menu > Show sidebar) and long-tap the mic button. You can move Edit mode button from the top to sidebar by long-tapping it as well.

      As you might’ve noticed, the microphone button is available in Edit mode. So just tab the lightning button and voice recognition is at your fingertips.

    I have bought this Application and enjoy using it every day. If you add to this app. Will I still get the new add-on without having to buy it again?

    • Alex says:

      Tudie, thanks for your feedback. No, you won’t need to buy the app again if new features added. However some larger features like Meal Planner may go for extra fee, though this is still under consideration.

    The widget is not useful. It is just a shorcut with the total of items in all lists. It would be nice to be able to have a widget for an specific shopping list. For example. Costco 3/5
    Which means 3 out of 5 items still need to be purchased.
    The widget keeps updating depending on status of items.
    Walmart 10/15
    Safeway 5/22
    Please see ColorNote notepad app widget, so that you can see what type of widget I’m talking about.

    • anduz says:

      Once you add that feature I’ll buy your app. For now I’ll keep using colornote for my shopping lists. I know colornote does not have many of the features your app has, but it has a very useful widget.

      • Alex says:

        Hi Anduz, thanks for your suggestion. We will consider this feature going forward.

        Thanks and I look forward to hearing from you again.

    Wanted to buy the app today.. and still thinking because it lacks a normal widget (as a list on a home screen) like in”out of milk”. In other ways it’s the best. So is there gonna bee this type off widget?
    Also were can I see the looks of Web interface?

    • Alex says:

      Hi Anton, thanks for your feedback and your questions.

      Kindly note that we may consider adding full-size widget down the road, but it’s not in top priority list. The link to the Basic Web UI is the following: http://my.mightygrocery.com More features are planned for Advanced Web UI.

      Thanks and I look forward to hearing from you again.

    Hello I just downloaded the app, I thought it looked very useful for what I was starting to do and that is couponing. This migty grocery has it all and I’m going to use it to the fullest, except which store has what item at discounted price. Something to think about. This what I’m going to use for when I go shopping do my adds make my list. Then just have my phone, I already have enough in my hands with the coupons and all the stores add’s .

    • Alex says:

      Hi Joey, thank you for your feedback.

      Do you mean you would like to track item coupons per store? This is a part of planned “Compare store prices” feature. And I hope it will be available soon.

      Please let me know if you have any comments or question.

    Any way to add “add item to current list” as an action. Better yet…”add item to current list with voice”? As is this, the widget really only saves one click vs. the standard shortcut.

    • Alex says:

      Mike, thanks for your question.

      Kindly note there is a “Speech recognition” option when you add shortcut to your phone’s Home screen. Unfortunately, this option is unavailable for App Widget.

      As for quickly adding items, if you had a shortcut which navigates you to the current shopping list, it would take you only two clicks to add items to current shopping list: first, to open current shopping list, second, to initiate adding a new item.

      Thanks and I look forward to hearing from you again.
