Grocery Helper: Important functionality not included One of the best features of Grocery Helper is the ability to create lists for several stores. I shop not only at a grocery store, but also at a department store, and a hardware store. To accommodate this, Grocery Helper allows you to create multiple lists. Problem: Grocery Helper does not allow you to add an item to your choice of lists. If I need lettuce, I would add it to the grocery list. Socks: department store list. Drywall screws: hardware list. The problem occurs with items available at some, but not all stores. Spray paint would be on both the hardware and department store lists, but not the grocery store list. Aspirin would be on both the grocery and department store list, but not the hardware list. Why can't Grocery Helper allow the user to choose the stores from a checklist when editing an item, and then remove the item from all stores once it has been purchased? This basic functionality would increase the user's freedom and flexibility to create useful, user-friendly lists. It's hard to believe that NONE of the Android shopping lists are able to produce this very, very basic functionality.

What am I doing wrong? This App is just what I was looking for. I don't know if it is me doing something wrong, but I would like to automatically create a shopping list by selecting items <=75%. What's happening at the moment is, I update the inventory list for each item to its current stock level and then have to select each item again manually to see if I need to buy them. Otherwise a great App and would be worthy of 5+ stars.
