Jotalicious is a beautifully-designed shopping assistant that turns plain text lists into color-coded checklists of awesome. It works the way a shopping assistant on your phone should – you create lists just like you are jotting a note to yourself and Jotalicious organizes your lists into sortable, taggable checklists. When Jotalicious finds the name of a place next to an item in your list – for example, "Fresh Herbs @Farmers Market" – it automatically tags and adds the item to a virtual shopping list for that place too. If typing is just too old school for you, use your device's voice dictation* feature to speak your lists into Jotalicious – say the phrase, "New Line" to separate each item on your list and Jotalicious does the rest. It's good to share, and with Jotalicious it's even better. Jotalicious is on the spot with AirDrop, AirPrint, text message, and email sharing support. You can send text copies of your lists to anyone or you can share a "jot", which can be imported, complete with tags, by other Jotalicious users. And all of those text lists people send you – or lists you find on your favorite blog or elsewhere – can be pasted into Jotalicious to create new lists effortlessly – just copy text and paste awesome! Jotalicious is shopping list bliss – after you dictate, paste, or jot your first list, you'll wonder how you ever lived without it. (*NOTE: Voice Dictation is not available on all devices. If your device supports voice dictation, you will see a microphone icon next to the spacebar when your device displays a keyboard.)
I end up with duplicate lists each time the lists are shared. Somehow one of the places have also been duplicated so I need to open each when shopping. A couple of really handy features would be to sync between devices without manually sharing and also the ability to add a budget to the lists.
Super for projects. Keeps track of costs; items obtained or needed; places of purchase, etc. Useful app.
I want to be able to put each of my lists (places) in order or at least be able to drag them in the order I want. I like to have my list in order of the store I’m shopping at. I paid for this app and really want to continue using it, but this issue is VERY frustrating. I can only organize my entire list (weekly groceries).
Could have a lot of potential if lists were not restricted to groceries or priced goods. I could usually use its UX and convenient UI to story my list of places I have visited or want to visit, lost or albums etc etc etc. For just groceries? Nah, there are much better options out there.
Am very satisfied. It'd be best if a mac app is provided for sync between mac and i-devices.
I love this app! I always write a hand written list to take to the grocery store. Alone with sticky notes of things I remember later. I can never find those notes! This app is perfect, we always have our phones. I really like that you can dictate a store list.
I am a crazy list maker. I love them. I have tried many list apps and I LOVE this one. I love the dictation ability. It is straightforward and I think if the developer keeps updating it will only grow with you.
I have tried a lot of apps for shopping (primarily grocery), and, in my experience, Jotalicious beats them all, hands down. I love that I can put all of my shopping trips and lists in one place and not have to delete anything each time. And, when I had a question, the developers were quick and courteous. This app is worthy of five stars, but there are two things I hope the developers will change. The first is that the instructions are not very good, and what I could find in the way of help is sorely lacking. I have used this app for almost two years without ever really understanding how terrific it really is. Through dumb luck, I figured out just how good this app truly is. Granted, there are probably a lot of other people who could have figured out this app much quicker than I did. But, not everybody thinks the same and not everybody is intuitive when it comes to apps (apparently, I am one of those, lol). #2: It would be a great help to me if the app could tell me how much I am spending on just the items I still need; currently, it includes EVERY item for which I have entered a price in the app. Not helpful. Idea: When using a Places list (e.g., Costco), it would be very helpful if the two figures at the top of the screen (the "purchased of" amounts) were controlled by the All, Got It, and Need It buttons. So, if I go into my Costco list and tap Need It, those two figures at the top would change to reflect solely the prices of the items still showing. Likewise, tapping All or Got It would do the same for those two lists, respectively. I like to know how much money I am spending each time I go to the store. With this feature, I would gladly rate Jotalicious a 10 (and if that were possible).

I really like this app. Input is simple, but you can add lots of info if you want. The only feature it's missing (5th star) is syncing with someone else. Yes, I can share a list, but that's not the same as having it update when I think of something after I've sent it. We also can't each add to a list.
