Quick Shop Lite - get your shopping done faster.

Get it from the Android Market now!

Quick Shop Lite has been in planning and development for several months.  I didn't want an app that I felt I wouldn't use, so it has taken a long time to work out a User Interface that works quickly and easily.  It had to be as easy as a paper list, or even easier.

I believe Quick Shop Lite achieves this and more.  It goes beyond a simple list app by keeping track of your most used list items and displaying the top 20 items on the front screen.

Quick Shop Lite is all about speed.  The goal is for you to be able to create and use your shopping list as quickly and simply as possible.  The app shouldn't get in the way.  You really need to use it to appreciate just how well it works.

Read below for a quick overview of Quick Shop Lite...



There are 3 different modes in Quick Shop Lite, each designated by tabs at the top of the screen.  The first tab ('ADD') is for adding items to your list. The second tab ('LIST') shows you the items in the list. The third tab ('TROLLEY') shows you items that have moved from the list to the trolley.

To use Quick Shop Lite, the process flow goes like this:

Add your items to the list.

Select the first tab ('ADD').
If the item you need is listed in the "Most Frequently Used Items" list, simply click on the item.
If the item you need is not listed in the "Most Frequently Used Items" list, simply type the item name into the text box and click the button below it.  The item will then be added to the list on the second tab.

NOTE: you are free to close the app at any time.  Quick Shop Lite will remember what is in your list so that next time you open it, everything will be right where you left off.

Check the shopping list by selecting the second tab ('LIST') and browsing the items.
If you need to adjust the quantity of an item, or delete an item, touch and hold the item until a menu pops up in the middle of the screen.  You will be given the option of changing the quantity or deleting the item.

At the shopping centre.

Select the second tab ('LIST').
This part is very simple.  For each item you physically put in your trolley, just touch the item in the list and it will automatically be moved to the trolley list (in the third tab).  Be careful to select the correct items as you go.

If you need to adjust the quantity of an item or delete it from the list, touch and hold the item until a menu pops up in the middle of the screen.  Then select the appropriate option from the menu.

Once all the items in the list are in your trolley, you are now ready to double-check your list - this is where the third tab ('TROLLEY') comes in very handy.

Before you visit the checkout.

Select the third tab ('TROLLEY').
In this list are all of the items you clicked on in the second tab.  Using this list you can just double-check that you have everything you need, and that your trolley contains all of these items.

As in the second tab, if you need to adjust the quantity of an item or delete it from the list, touch and hold the item until a menu pops up in the middle of the screen.  Then select the appropriate option from the menu.

That's it - you're now ready to head to the checkout.  I hope you enjoy using Quick Shop Lite!
