I am going to create my own shopping list application.
I have not heard best memory. Every time I go shopping I have to write a list somewhere. Either I use Evernote or a piece of paper, it is not convinient enough.
Evernote is to broad and doesn’t have a type of notes suitable for too lists. Specialised applications like RememberTheMilk aren’t bad, but I haven’t found one I can use without learning their concepts and I don’t want to.
I would like to have a simple list application. As a user I want to create a list of goods and go to the shop. I want application to help me with autocorrect and predictions.
While I am shopping I will swipe items on the list left of right, meaning I bought it or I am excluding it from the list. After I am done I may enter a total cost for all the groceries. I am not willing to enter a price per piece, not even quantity.
After that, I may enter the shop name.
After some statistics gained I want appication to sort list according to regular patterns such as:
Aside from sorting, I would like to be remainded about things I have not bought last times in the shop I am going to visit.
Also it would be nice to get rough estimation of the total cost, given the previous experience.
