In some ways I LOVE this app!!...once I set up my pantry system. But....I wish I could make my own category names. I can’t recall an example at this time and it’s just a nuisance. I personally can do without categories but that’s me. I’d love to have a sub-location category. But now that I’m constantly improving my system, I might be fine the way it is. What I’d really like to see is an ability to group locations so it’s not a huge long list. I have 7 shelving units in my pantry with 4 shelves each. Each individual shelf is a location. I’d love to be able to group each shelving unit instead of seeing 1-1, 1-2, 1-3, 1-4, 2-1...etc. The other big thing that I don’t like is I want to have “rooms” without getting everything grouped together. My pantry is downstairs. I want a separate thing for the kitchen. I’d also love to organize my bathroom and storage area (I know, they’re not food areas). I’m thinking about buying another account for the kitchen but that would be on the iPad so I don’t have to switch emails constantly. I just solved the kitchen problem now I have to find a good app for the other areas of the house. As I said, I love this app but I wish I could have separate rooms with their own locations.
It was easy to scan everything in pantry, fridge and cabinets. While preparing meals, I mark off things I used and tap Restock to add to Shopping list. Im sure I won’t be buying things I don’t need now. I checked out my Shopping List and it includes estimated costs to replace items also. One ask: I couldn’t scan some OTC drugs into app. Would love to see a way to scan and add new items to the database.
This is the best pantry app I have found. The only downside is that you can’t add your own categories.
So the plus is that its easy to scan everything in with the bar code scanner, it seems to have most everything in though a couple of my items werent found. I ma disappointed that you can’t sort your items alphabetically once they are scanned in. That makes it more difficult to quickly find what you need. Also only 200 items on the free version. That sounds like a lot but i will probably hit that with just my spices and baking supplies
A poorly designed UI makes the app difficult to use for the average user.
So I might have a bit more food around the house than I did, say, before the global pandemic! I was looking for something to help me make sure I’m not wasting anything, and to help me prevent overbuying items I already have. I specifically wanted to be able to mark items as partly used. For example, if I have 6lb chicken Breasts in the freezer, I want to be able to use 2lb instead of marking each item totally used (flaw IMO of other app I tried). I started just to inventory the deep freezer and got carried away doing pretty much all my food storage! Rapid entry is SO fast and easy. Also it was good for me to go through everything and remember what all I have. Great app!
I've written many reviews on various platforms for products, services and applications. Pantry Check has been the most integrated into my daily life in our family. Whether you are on a budget, trying to organize or just hate finding food you forgot all about - this app covers all the bases. Easily you can barcode all of the items in your pantry, storage or cabinets, add quantities and expiration dates. From there you can assign locations so you know where your food is : basement, garage, etc. If you use it, go to the overall list and barcode it. Click it off and done. I can't say enough good things about it. The app development and support team are outstanding, extremely pleasant and very helpful. Dealing with them makes me think "Amex, Bose, or Apple," level quality of care in the way I've been treated. Top tier of all customer service experiences I've ever had without any reservation. Paying for the yearly service is definitely worth it in my opinion if you are going to be tracking a large amount of items. The devs support family sharing and I can attest that if my wife makes a change I see it in real time. There are so many more features I have not even touched on as I continue to learn more and more each time I use it. I assure you this will not disappoint. If there was a way to give it more stars I would. Stay safe and be well...
The drawback, besides having to pay a subscription for storing more than 200 items, is there doesn’t appear to be any way to add partially used packages to the inventory. So if I buy a pack of 4 tissue boxes & use 1, I can’t show that there is now only 3 boxes in the pack. Same with cereal boxes that are open & half gone, there’s no way to show that so I don't really have a complete inventory of my pantry. But other than that, it is great! So easy to use, scanning the bar code of items makes the job a breeze!
This app has been working great for my whole house for about 2 years. Only getting better with time.
Took me awhile to figure this app out. Once I did, I find it indispensable. I want to thank sunrooms for making it free.
