Everyone uses shopping lists on their smart phones to make sure they do not forget what they need to buy. However, with a long list you can still forget something. Usually that is because your list is not in the right order. A specific fruit or vegetable you need is at the bottom of the list and you do not see it until you are well past the produce section. Or, you have a long list and you just overlook something as you walk through the store. How annoying is it when you have to keep scrolling up and down your list to try and make sure you do not miss something? What is even more annoying is when you have to walk back and forth through the store because you realize you missed something.
A Simple Solution
Shop In Order allows a user to make a list just like any number of other list applications. Then when the user goes to the store they tell the application which store they are going to and which list they are going to use. The application will present the items on the list in order based on how the store is organized. The application can do this because over time the application learns how each store is organized using a simple however proprietary algorithm.
Shop In Order is based on three assumptions. The first is that people buy groceries in the same stores repeatedly. The second assumption is that people buy the same items repeatedly. The third assumption is that people walk through the store in the same way repeatedly.
Shop In Order is built for the Universal Windows Platform (UWP). Unfortunately, for now, there are no more Windows phones. Therefore, we do have an Android version under development but it is not ready yet.
