Shortly after I posted that last comment, food on the table announced they were taking down their web portal. It doesn't work anymore if you are not using recipes from one of their dozens of supported sites. The only way to put n your own recipes is to type it all out on the mobile device .
So, I found PepperPlate, which does allow me to paste in the ingredients. I miss the sale prices and a couple of other conveniences in food on the table, but until I find a shopping app works to web clip the recipes for ingredients, it's the best I can do.

I use the shop shop app but I would love it if spark had a shop app. I like using the meal plans, even if I don't follow it for every meal.

Hi,

I agree and hopefully they will update the App at some point this year (as there was only one last year!, well for the iPad anyway). I found all my foods I entered manually revert to 1 gram when I add it on the App! So I have to remember the sizes in my head! :)

I have a new favorite grocery app. It's called food on the table. I'm still using the free version because I haven't yet planned for myself to make more than three home cooked meals a week.

I've been looking at different grocery list apps after I saw all the errors generated when I tried to scale up the persons served in the grocery list generated by the spark people nutrition tracker:
http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/nutri
tion.asp
From the button at the bottom of the page.

This week I realized that I could take the meals added to my tracker by http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/family-
dinner-planner.asp and paste them into the web portal version of this app:
http://www.foodonthetable.com

to generate a more accurate grocery list than any other app I've found. I'm going to keep trying it for a few weeks but I think I finally found the solution with the least work of double entry. The only thing better would be if the spark recipes could be web clipped like all the rest of the websites that are in the app.

When I'm at work I can print out my list but many times I leave my list at home. However, I don't leave my phone at home. I like the mix and match meal feature. It would be awesome if I could just pull my grocery list up on my phone. I know that there are other apps out there but I don't like to do double work, so since I track and plan my meals on spark and use spark recipes it would be nice if the spark app included the grocery list.

My favorite iphone grocery app is Grocery Gadget. I especially like it because in addition to editing and synchronizing your lists with your whole family on the go, you can also edit your lists and import lists on any browser. I'd love to see meal plan grocery lists from SparkPeople's recipies exportable in a way that I could import them into Grocery Gadget without too much trouble.

I have not read the posts below so I am sorry if I am repeating anything, but I just found an ap on my phone for free that is called "Our Groceries". WOW!!! It is a personalized grocery list you can make and link it to any other Iphone (like your spouse) and when you cross off an item, it syncs with the other phone and crosses it out too and vice-verse. I thought I would share, I love it.

Have a blessed day everyone!!

Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out.

It is hard to fail, but it is worse never to have tried to succeed.

I like the idea as long as I could do my own custom list. I don't pre-plan any of my dinners. Breakfast and lunch are so I would use it. I can eat the same breakfast and lunch for weeks on end, I change my dinners.

BTW, I use OmniFocus right now to do my errands lists, so its not a big deal if its not there.

Now I have taken control...

It certainly would make it easier when I'm out at the store...I already have my phone! emoticon

And the SparkPeople App is on my dock ...so its the quickest, easiest and fastest to get to... along with the fact that what is on the list will be used that week.

Life may have a gravitational pull, but I'm still looking up!

I just wanted to say that I concur that the grocery list should be included in the App.

There would be a definite synergy. If you track your nutrition in SP (either the default plan, or build your own), it makes sense to then port the resulting grocery list to your phone. The convergence really steps up when you consider making the trip home from work, checking tonight's menu and stopping by the grocery for fresh items from the menu. Right now, this means going home first, printing the grocery list and then heading to the store.

This would be great! I use the meal plan for almost every meal and do all my grocery shopping for the week on Sundays, so I would definitely use this function in the app.

yeah if it could be added onto the iphone spark... then it would be a one-stop-shop instead of multiple sites/calculators

I agree that there are several very good grocery apps out there, but I have started planning my weekly meals in Spark by pre-logging them (a suggestion I found in the forums). This allows a grocery list to be generated from my custom meal plan, which is great. What would be even greater would be if I could then automatically have this list on my iPhone for when I go shopping.

I think that there are quite a few grocery type apps out there already. I personally do not use the spark provided menus so the grocery addon would not be a priority.

Any chance incorporating the weekly shopping list into the iPhone app is on the priority list? This would be a KILLER addition to the app.
