Fun design, deep amount of options, useful features
Some might find it just another list application
Bring! Shopping List for Android is an application that takes a mundane category like shopping lists and puts such a unique spin on the idea that you can help but be charmed.
You pick your teal colored groceries and then tap them to add them to the list - this makes them red. This design within the app works smartly and it feels cool to organize from teal into red. The teal boxes that represent your food all have white icons. There are many categories of food to pick your teal boxes from. I could see this being very useful if you didn't know what you wanted from the store. Very often I need food, but can't think of anything I want to buy. With this app in my mind, that might not be a problem any longer.
Some may dismiss this app because you can do really make a grocery list on many apps or even paper. I know in Google Keep the list feature comes in handy and is easily shared through texts. Bring! tries to enhance this social integration by letting you know others when you are shopping, and letting them see the same sort of list through their version of the application. While not necessarily more useful than other applications sharing features, it certainly seems more fun. A lot of things about this application just seem fun and I attribute this to the design that I spoke about earlier.
The application is also easy and friendly for people to use. It didn't take me long to understand how to add things to my list, and there is even a recently added to list category. This one feature could potentially differentiate this application from others, and make it more useful. Many times you go to the store and buy the same things, this would make it easier to just readd it to the list or even see what you bought last time.
Bring! Shopping List is a great alternative to paper and other application based shopping lists. For what it does, it does it well.
