What's New

This is a MAJOR UPDATE with two new features that I (and many of you) have wanted to add for a long time. They’ve made the app twice as useful (or 1000x!):

- **NEW** ADD IMAGES TO YOUR ITEMS! A picture is worth 1000 words!
- **NEW** ADD ALERTS TO YOUR LISTS & ITEMS!

Data protection & backup improvements:

- Fixed a bug affecting non-backed up data & device restoring
- Added extra backup protection & recovery coding
- Reduced size of data files to save space & speed up launch times

Other additions & fixes:

- Added reminders for missed alerts
- Added note & image icons to Master Catalog items, and image & alert icons to list items
- Now, reorder all your list categories in one go
- Made the Checkout button a bit bigger & easier to tap
- Fixed a bug affecting adding new units (thanks, Pierre!)
- Fixed a bug that in some cases prevented full editing due to locked scrolling (thanks, Keri!)
- Fixed a broken link to ‘Gift This App’

App Description

** Based on the #1-ranking, award-winning, App Store-featured Packing Pro app **

** UNIVERSAL APP -- optimized for iPad, iPhone & iPod touch **
** Great Value -- like getting two apps in one! **

- Left the list on the fridge?
- Can't remember what your spouse told you to buy?
- Need to make a *second* run to the grocery store?

That'll never happen again with Shopping Free, a digital grocery & shopping list that is always by your side. Shopping Free is the lite version of Shopping Pro, which itself was built on the feature-mature 4-year foundation of Packing Pro, the #1-ranking travel app featured in the App Store's "10 Essentials" & "Plan Your Vacation" promotions.

This free version comes ad-free, but is limited to only one shopping list (though with unlimited items). It also includes all of the following core features:

1) SHOPPING LIST FEATURES:

2) CATALOG FEATURES:

- CUSTOMIZE the Master Catalog with 100% freedom (add, delete, rename & reorder any category, type or item)

- MULTI-EDIT your types & items (delete, move, copy or set tax) more quickly than one-by-one

3) OTHER KEY FEATURES:
